Christmas day and dinner with the Alvey's

Grandma and Grandpa as always are super giving. I think they love Christmas more than anyone.

Presents from Grandma and Grandpa.
Jenna got an I-home I-pod dock and alarm clock;)

Brady got an awesome Star Wars Lego set.

Brooke got oodles of art stuff ( Which will last a week tops) and a pillow pet.

Grandma and Grandpa also gave all the grandkids matching PJ's and asked every to dress in them for Christmas dinner.
It makes for really cute pictures;)

Brady, Wyatt, Dax & Jack. Missing ( Kayden )

Brooke, Myli, Hallie, Mya, Ava & Maddie. Missing( Kamri )

Grandma went all out on the table settings too. It was Mickey themed and way cute. Look at the little lanterns even. Way too much work for me.

Christmas Eve

Cookies and carrots for Santa and the Reindeer. It was funny Brooke sang the song and counted on her fingers so she knew how many carrots to put out.

Christmas Morning
We all had a very good Christmas thanks to the Secret Santa!!!!

Brooke and the Rapunzel doll she received.

Jenna with a jewelry box and jewelry.

This is the booty the kids got at the Trunk Or Treat this year. Just seeing them dump it all out, sort it and start the bartering brings back memories. I love Halloween!

Jenna was a mom in a robe with her hair in curlers and a baby sling with a doll.
Amanda (Jenna's friend) was a bumble bee.
Brady was one of the G.I. Joes.
Brooke was a witch. She striped out of her costume soo fast. There are pictures of it in an earlier post.

Brooke has been practicing day and night. For her Halloween program. In the tub, in the car, at the dinner table. It was sooo cute to listen to her sing all her songs it was a program that couldn't be missed. Zach took the day off so he could go too & grandma Moore joined as well. She did so good and sang sooo loud. I couldn't be prouder.

Brookie Cookie my little witch.

Jaxon one of my daycare kids. He had a clown wig and a shirt that said ladies man. LOL

Anson one of my daycare kids dressed as a storm trooper. ( I think )

The Red Barn Pumpkin Patch.

So starting last year Grandma Alvey started a new tradition. She buys all the kids new Halloween shirts, takes them to the Pumpkin patch @ The Red Barn in Santaquin. Where the give you a hay ride out to the pumpkin patch. Grandma lets all the kids pick any pumpkin they want they just have to be able to carry it themselves. Then back to grandma's for hot cocoa and pumpkin carving. This year we started with a super yummy breakfast. Which included kneaders recipe for french toast with carmel syrup.

Love this picture of all the cousins laughing at Dax repeating his name ( Dax Danger ) in a creepy raspy voice.

Hay ride out to the patch. Just before the down pour.

Good thing they had a tent there for us to all huddle under. Jake, Jason,& Danny all ran a mile back to the cars to bring them to the patch so the kids wouldn't have to ride the wagon back in the pouring rain. GOOD TIMES ;)

Excuse me is this the really Caesars Palace?

Vegas road trip.

Zach and Derek Planned a road trip to Las Vegas for the Vegas bike rally. They left on Thursday afternoon and rode their bikes all the way to Vegas. Crazy you say. Why yes, yes it is and that is why Jen and I pulled a trailer down and joined them on Friday night. But what a blast it was to have a little get away with our friends the Harpers.

Labor Day Weekend

So like every year Labor day weekend is an eventful one. On Saturday we went on a ride with our friends the Harper's and Rocky Mt. ATV. It was really fun and really long. Then they had a great BBQ and prize drawings. I think I got too much sun, cause later that night I went to my 15 yr. class reunion VERY nauseous. But after I got a little food in me it turned out to be a really great night.

On Monday- We rose early so I could run the onion days 5K. I beat my time again. This time 29.30 min. Then back to Debbie's to get the kids ready for the parade. In the afternoon Debbie planned a soup bar. Everyone brought their favorite soup. And it was yummy!!! It was fun to try all the different one's. Kyle made one he had on his mission in Portugal.

It was my 15 year reunion this year. And Malea's husband Paul dragged me up there with promised of good fun. ( He said he would play that game form the movie date night. Where they make up conversations people are having from across the room. )
And he didn't deliver. Good thing it was still a good time. Glad I went and got to see a few people I haven't seen in a while. Most I'm still friends with. The 20 year better have a better turn out.

This is the group from My 15 year reunion.

Misty, Malea, Tina, Haley, Stacy & Me

Brooke's first day of Kindergarten.

These are tears of Joy. I love this little girl but not sad to see her go. She need a creative outlet. And something to wear her out. And so far this week has been very draining. And now I can get her to take naps. I am a little saddened she is after all my baby. And this mile stones won't happen again.
