Halloween Fun

Here is a video compilation of our many Halloween festivities. At first Fayth was a clown, but she kept insisting that she was a princess. So, on actual Halloween I let her wear a wig and be a princess. It was pretty funny. The boys had a fun time as well, and scored major candy! And Casey put a bit of a twist on his traditional Tiger Woods costume. Take a look...

Craving of the Week

Chicken Roll Ups

1 package refrigerated crescent rolls, 8 rolls
8 oz cream cheese
1 can cooked chicken
2 tbs melted butter
bread crumbs
1 can cream of chicken

Roll out the crescent rolls onto and lay flat. In a bowl combine chicken and cream cheese. You won't need all 8oz of cream cheese, just however much you like. I also add some garlic salt (you can add whatever you like). Then spoon the mixture onto the fat part of the crescent triangle. Roll it up and pinch ends closed. Brush melted butter on the rolls, and then roll in bread crumbs. Cook on a cookie sheet or in a baking dish for 15-20 mins at 300 degrees. In a saucepan mix the cream of chicken with some milk and use as a gravy over the roll ups! LOVE IT!

Our Lady turns 2!



We decided last minute, to take a trip to Utah. We celebrated Fayth's birthday there with lots of cousins! Everyone had a great time!

Big Girl Bed

Fayth moved into her big girl bed, a few days before her birthday. The new bedding is from Grandma Nancy and it is adorable! She was very excited, she thought it was so pretty!



The bedding matches the decals in her room perfectly! I love her room. I hope she does as much as me :)



She was nervous, right before she went to bed. But she slept the whole night and didn't get out of her bed once. Kind of ironic that a "big girl" still has her pacifier...but she loves it and we are hoping to be rid of it within the next six months! One step at a time!

Labor Day

What happens when you drive 10 hours to be with your grandparents, they have a really cool treadmill that you think does not work, so you let your kids play on it?



You end up in the Emergency Room in American Fork, Utah at 11pm at night. That is what happens!



We got to my grandparents around 6pm. Then we went to the mountains for a picnic with all my cousins. We got home and me and my grandma went downstairs to get the boys ready for bed. I put Fayth straight to bed, and then after their shower I brushed their teeth. They started playing on the treadmill, and I really did not even think about it. I was so tired and having a conversation with my grandma. She did tell them, that it was broken, and they could play on it and walk on it to make it go manually. Well, as I was in the bathroom next to the room with treadmill in it, I heard a horrible sound. Basically Ty screaming mixed with a loud crash and the sound of the treadmill going. Luckily my grandma was in the room, and stopped the treadmill right away. But when Ty turned it on, it was on full speed and of course knocked his feet out from under him...causing him to face plant, and then be shot off the treadmill. He must have hit the wall, and then his face was stuck in between the wall and the treadmill, causing burns to his face. When he fell face first, he bit all the way through his bottom lip, and knocked a few of his top baby teeth loose. Right after it happened he was screaming! Blood was pouring from his nose and mouth. It was so scary. Casey ran downstairs and we determined that he had bit through his lip. So we took him to the ER. He did amazing, and the ER staff there was very impressed with him. They had to numb his lip with novacaine, and I heard the nurse ask the doctor if they needed to bring in straps to hold him down. Well, this got me freaked out! I turned completely white, and the nurse asked ME if I was okay. Of course I lied and said I was great. They did not bring in restraints, but they brought in two nurses to hold him down...but he did not move, did not cry, did not make a sound as they gave him four shots in his lip! He is so brave and tough. Luckily he has healed amazingly, and we were able to do all the fun things we had planned. Here he is the next day, at the aquarium.



His mouth was very swollen, so he had to eat soft things and drink through a straw. But everyday the swelling went down more and more. So thankful he wasn't more seriously injured. As for our trip, we had a great time. Here is my grandma with all her great grandkids, minus two week old Owen who was in the stroller.



We all had a great time! So fun to be with family!



Here they are will all five of their great grand children. One more coming in December! I know..they don't look old enough right? As you can see, Ty's face was much better by the last day we were there. We learned a lesson the hard way, never play on exercise equipment no matter what! Tytan wouldn't even go in the same room as the treadmill for the rest of the trip! But we were so happy to spend time with my family that we don't get to see nearly enough. We are truly blessed!

Silly Girl

Here is some video I took this morning. Fayth was trying to be clever. Notice how she looks at Tanner for his reaction. Pay no attention to her messy face from breakfast, or my deep voice from a cold.

Tytan turns 6

He is getting too old. What can I say? But he really is more than I ever could of hoped for in a son.



His favorite gift was his skateboard. He loves it, and he is naturally good at it. Again...he is getting so big! I had an emotional day for sure.



These are my little helpers making cupcakes to take to Ty's class.

.

Did you notice that Tanner's face is covered in mosquito bites? Or the huge pile of dirty laundry in the hall? Just click on the picture to make it bigger...you will notice!



Despite the never ending laundry, the frosting I made that Tanner informed me looked like snot, or the toy I bought at Kohl's that was supposed to change colors but never did....the most important thing is making these precious faces happy. And letting them know I love them more then I could ever say! I really don't think I could have asked for better children, if I had hand picked them myself!




See what I mean?
