Memories of Sanford...

On a recent trip to Idaho, Grandpa Garth was making breakfast for the boys with brown and green eggs that he got from their neighbors. Zack asked why the eggs were not white and how they got to be brown and green. Grandpa Garth replied that Jesus made them that way. He said that it is like people- some of us are black and some of us are white. Grandpa then asked the boys why they thought some people are black and some are white... After thinking for awhile, Josh said, "I know how people get black- they get born in Florida!"

Halloween 2009

Zack and I getting ready to go to the trunk-or-treat

We went to Draper for their city carnival which the boys loved!

It really wore them out!

Halloween morning jack-o-cakes

Bradley ate a sucker with his pancakes-yummy!

After breakfast we carved these huge pumpkins from Grandpa Garth.

And had mummy hot dogs for lunch.

They were a hit!

Ready to go trick-or-treating!

Later that night we stopped at Gary and Kim's to see the cousins!
So much fun to have family close by...

Our house ready for trick-or-treaters!

Fall Happenings...

Bradley loves to rock out on Rock Band.

Bradley shows his absolute disgust for peas.

Josh was an awesome soccer player! He scored every game this year- usually 2-3 goals per game. He was very fast uses both feet- which made him pretty amazing. We never knew which foot he was going to kick with...

Josh with his medal

Zacked loved to play soccer for about the first 10 minutes. Then he was done. He was good, and would usually score right away and then decide that he had done his job and was ready to view the rest of the game from the side.

Bradley was usually very pleasant even though he sat through soccer four nights a week...

While we were in Idaho, Josh helped Grandpa Garth move cattle. He had some major skills when it came to being a cowboy...

With the cold air moving in, the boys began their coughing season. Every year is the same, they cough for weeks without other symptoms. The breathing treaments help out lots. We are just happy to be away from Florida where it was year round because of their mold allergies!

For family home evening we made carmel apples. The boys really got into it and had a great time! It is so much fun when Ryan is home to do these things with us...



So I saw this on TV when I was 12 weeks along and supposedly it is about 80% accurate. I decided that I had to try it out. It said that we would be having another boy...
I guess we will see~!

oh josh~

Today Josh found a book that shows how to build different things in it. He asked if he could build something and I told him if he found something in there that he knew how to build and if we had the stuff to do it, then sure, go for it. A few minutes later he runs into my room and says, "Mom! I found something to build! All I need is a hammer, some scissors and a chainsaw!"

H-O-T Mama

On our recent trip to Idaho we stopped at McDonalds for breakfast in our haste to get home to smooch on baby Max. Josh did his duty of getting his buckle undone and passing out the food to his brothers. As he handed the food to Zack he said, "Careful Zack, this is hot. Not HOT like Mom is HOT, but the other hot..."
I think he's a keeper.

Happy Birthday Zack!

This cake turned out to be harder then it looked. I tried a new frosting, which was a bad idea and had the wrong size tip for the frosting... Zack told me I did an "okay job for a mom".
I guess better luck next year Buddy.
birthday snuggles.

The goods- notice the new suit.

Zack's preschool teacher gave him these glasses for his birthday.

So happy to be at Chuck E Cheese!

Bradley has the biggest smile I have ever seen here! Look at all of those teeth!
Going for a ride...

Josh, Veronica, Zack, Jackson, Austin and Bradley in front.

Zack took a nasty spill getting out of a tall toy. The corner of a bench caught him in the head on the way down (he fell head first) leaving a huge goose egg and cut. We watched him all night, but he just got a headache. Josh described it to Grandma as the size of a quarter plus a penny- which was amazingly accurate for how strange of a description it was...

He iced his head the whole way home-

Singing Happy Birthday

Friends and cousins came to help us eat the cake...

Ending the day by opening birthday presents from Grandma Bonnie-

We counted down the minutes....

until 10:00 this morning. Zack wondered if I REALLY needed to shower or if we could just go. I reminded him that even if I didn't shower, we still had to wait until 10:00 to go to school. He loved every second of it. Bradley was very upset that he didn't get to stay but next year he will get his turn. Zack did so well and really enjoyed having one of his best friends from our neighborhood, Jayden, there with him. He draws pictures for her everyday (has for weeks)- strewn with hearts and flowers and all things lovey- such a ladies man.
