Happy Thanksgiving

We spent Thanksgiving at Grammy and Grampy's this year, with Cameron's brother Craig and his family. We missed seeing all the other siblings and nephew's, maybe next year.

Taylor and Ashton

We were all surprised to see that Grammy and Grampy had put a full size teeter totter in there living room. The kids loved it!
Every year Cameron's parents do Christmas PJ's for everyone and we love it, but you only wear them for a week before the holiday season is over so this year Cameron and I decided to start our own tradition and open Christmas PJ's on Thanksgiving. Cohen was so excited, he loved that he got to open his and help Ashton with his.

*Our Boys*

In November I had one of my good friends from high school take pictures of my boys. I love how they turned out, she did such a great job! Thanks Jennie!
Cohen and Ashton
I love how they are both smiling and looking at me :)

Cohen is my little cheezer, love it!
This is so funny, like they planned to both show their serious side.

Go Jazz!

Anyone that knows us, knows that we love the Jazz! A couple months ago we were able to have dinner and go to a game with two other couples, Cory & Beth, and Hiram & Sarah. Usually it's just Cam and I that go to the games, so it was nice to have some friends join us this time.

It was also Ashton's first Jazz game, and he did great! He mostly just watched everyone in the crowd and smiled when they started cheering.
I had to post this picture (sorry Beth) it is just to funny. I love how everyone is all excited and Beth looks bored out of her mind :)
Taking a break at half time to get Red Mango. Yum!

Ashton's Blessing

On September 7, 2010 we had our son Ashton blessed. We were so happy to have so many of our friends and family there to share our special day with us!

All the Cousins

Happy Halloween!

The week before Halloween Cameron went out of town for business. While he was gone I took my boys to our wards trunk-or-treat, and chili cook off. I definitely had my hands full by myself but Cohen loved it which made it worth it! Cohen showing my all the candy he got!
After we went over to Cory and Beth's to carve pumpkins, and wait for Cameron's flight to get it. Cohen hates to be dirty so he had to clean out the pumpkin with a spoon, and Riley took care of the rest! I love that they are "best friend cousins" as Cohen would say.
Every year we go to Beth's brother and sister-in-laws house for Halloween. We have a Chili and potato bar with Cory's homemade root beer, and then all the kids get to go out trick-or-treating together.

This year trick-or-treating was COLD, we made it around the block before it started raining. They loved every minute of it though, and they would have kept going if we let them.

We also got a surprise visit from Aunt Chanelle and Grammy

A day at Gardner Village

I love when Gardner Village puts their witches out for Halloween, Beth and I decided to go spend the day there. It was so much fun, the boys loved running from witch to witch, and of course they had to touch every pumpkin before they moved on...
Riley Cohen and Bridger

Cohen said "I'm not sure about this little witch, but I guess I like her", so funny.
This is Cohen's attempt at making a scary face :)
I don't know why but I just love this picture, they are so cute.
After walking around the village looking at the witches we took the boys to the petting zoo. Cohen was so funny, he ran right in and ran from goat to goat until he pet them all.


We love Gardner Village

Gingers aunt Leslie came into town from Texas the end of September, and she wanted to come meet our little Ashton, she surprised Ginger by bringing her grandma with her! It was a great visit, and I'm so glad that we were able to spend time with both of them.
Grandma Enid, Ashton, Ginger, and Cohen

Ashton, and Leslie Ashton just loved his great grandma, he just smiled away as she talked to him.
Cohen loves anyone who will play cars and motorcycles with him :)

The Circus

In September we got invited to go to the circus with Cameron's brother and his family. It was Cohen's first time and he got more and more excited as we talked to him about it!

It was so much fun to see all the different acts, and we had great seats, row 11!
Of course had to get Cohen his FAVORITE snack...popcorn! He will take popcorn over candy any day! We did have to talk him into sharing with Riley though, he was convinced he could eat the whole bucket by himself, and he probably would have tried if we let him.
Cohen loved seeing all the animals, but his favorite were the motorcycles!
We also decided to take Trax which was another first for us. Cohen and Riley really enjoyed the "train" and probably would have been happy to just ride that all day.
Over all it was a great night and the kids did awesome!
