Playing Catch-Up

 This Summer Hayden and Brad ran the Timpanogos half marathon. Brad finished in 2 hours and 40 minutes and Hayden was behind him by 20 minutes. I was so impressed with both of this guys.
 Then Brad did his first Tri-Athalon in Herriman. He did a great job. I was so proud of him.
 First day of school. Shawnee as a Junior.
 Hayden as a Freshman
 Cortlyn as a 4th grader
 Ty as an All day Kindergarten. I am getting old:(
 Hayden played football this year. He was an offensive lineman.
 Kenzie getting ready to dance on the football field with her big sister at the Drill camp.
 Ty going to score another goal. This kid is fast and pretty good if I must say so. He rocks at Soccer. I hope he keeps this up.
Shawnee and Sloan as Homecoming. Aren't they a cute couple?

So that's a little bit of what we have done this summer and beginning of fall. Maybe more will come.

Kenzie's has hair

Kenzie has hair. Not that she didn't have hair before but she has long Rapunzel hair. Don't ask me what I was thinking at the time. But I thought it would be cute to make her hair longer. You see little girls all the time with their hair long and twisted. So 5 1/2 hours later this is what she gets. She was a champ for sitting there while I did her hair. She was so excited to have long Rapunzel hair. When we were all done she kept swooping it off her shoulder and out of her face. I asked "Kenzie what is daddy going to say when he sees your hair". She replies "daddy is going to say Rapunzel let down your hair." Just like in Tangled.

Just so you all know these are yarn extensions. I twisted yarn into her hair. You can't tell can you. That's the beauty of it. Yarn extensions are meant to help the hair grow, keep it moist and healthy. The best part is it will last for up to a month or longer. Yes it can be washed with shampoo. Pull back into a pony and you are set and ready to go for the day.

This really makes her look a lot older. It's she the cutest thing you ever did see? Sweet and Sassy little girl.

Kenzie turned 3

 Kenzie turned 3 this year. She wanted a scooter so she could go out and ride with the big kids. She was super excited to get a PINK scooter.
 She wanted a Tangled cake. This was the best that I could come up with.
She got some Tiana Jewelry from her cousin and she was in heaven.

Kenzie loves to wear skirts. We can't go anywhere without wearing a skirt.
She loves to play her little piano and sing Popcorn popping and Do as I'm Doing. She even sets up the primary book with the song.
She loves to listen to her ipod and jam to the music. She knows where all of her favorite songs are and all the words.
She loves to feed the chickens.
She throws a huge tantrum when she is tired and doesn't get what she wants.
Her FAVORITE color is PINK. She has to have the pink plate, pink play dough, pink crayon, pink book you get the picture. EVERYTHING PINK!!!!
She loves to comb my hair but doesn't like her hair to be combed. Good thing it only has to be combed once every 2 weeks.
She loves ring pops and asked for them every time we go to the store.

We are so grateful to have this "Little Muffet" is our home. Not sure what we would do without this fun loving, spit fire, lovable, energetic little girl. We love ya!!!

Sand Dunes

 We headed to the sand dunes for conference weekend. Friday was a gorgeous day. So we headed out on a ride before the weather got to bad. On Saturday the weather was ok. Windy and sunny. But on Sunday it was cold and very windy. I felt like we were in the wizard of oz movie. I was just waiting for our trailer to lift off the ground.
 The kids didn't mind the weather. They practiced going up a pretty steep hill. They all did awesome. This is Cortlyn going up the hill.
 We put Shawnee on her fourwheeler. This fourwheeler you have to shift with you foot. It can be a little tricky but she got it and was off.
 Hayden being a cool dude and always
 Not sure what we were thinking when we let Ty go up that steep hill. But he is as big as the other kids.(NOT) He did awesome until......
He got 5 feet from the top and his fourwheeler couldn't go any more. He was digging a hole. He was a little scared but dad was right there to help him through it. As you can see his little legs aren't long enough to touch the railings on the fourwheeler. In order to start his fourwheeler you have to hold in the hand brake and the start button and push on the gas. He can't reach the hand brake and the start button at the same time so he puts his foot up on the gas and holds the brake and the start button with his hands. It is so funny to watch but he gets it and does it all by himself.

 Kenzie is 2 years old
 Tyrell is 5 years old
 Shawnee is 16 years old
Love this picture of Ty and Kenzie so SWEET!!!


 Brad and Hayden took a little trip to Moab to do a little bike riding. They took a little hike up to the Delicate Arch. They said this was a beautiful place. The weather was a little chilly for their liking but they had fun.
They came home with a sunburned head. They rode their bikes for over 20 miles through this gorgeous place. They can't wait to take the whole family and take the wheelers.

Gingerbread houses

 Kenzie's house. She had the time of her life putting all the candy on her house. She had no help. I think she used all the Nicco's for a sidewalk or driveway.
 Ty did his all by himself too. Can you see the slide that Santa can go down?
 Cortlyn is very creative. Don't you just love her house
 Hayden had a little problem on his. Ty was trying to decorate his house when he pushed to hard and caved in the roof. Hayden being the nice brother he traded Ty. He made a stable with a manger and the whole works.
Gotta love Shawnee's house. She goes all out on hers. Thanks to our wonderful friends the Panters for coming over and having a great time while the kids decorated their houses.
