FHE Graham Cracker Houses

We had some friends over for FHE and we made Graham Cracker houses with the kids. Yes, we did just make some in Idaho Falls, but it was so much fun, we decided to make more! The kids all had fun, ate a little more candy than they put on their houses, and it was nice to talk to the grown ups too!! Thanks again for coming!!

Go BSU!!

Some friends let us use their Boise State tickets a couple weeks ago. It was fun to be there and be in the excitement of everything. But, it was SOOO cold. Needless to say, we only stayed until halftime. Also, BSU was killing the other team, so we weren't too worried that we would miss anything the second half. Thanks again Billy & Megan!!

Beautiful Idaho Sunsets

Ma's Eyes

Mikayla is my child that does not like to sleep. She doesn't like to sleep for naps or night. She does anything she can to keep moving so she won't fall asleep. Often times we have to hold her tight so she can't move and then she gives in. The past couple nights she has told me, while blinking her eyes, "My eyes no work". Meaning, she can't close them so she can't fall asleep. What a silly girl. The things they come up with.

Family Pictures

While in Idaho Falls, we also attempted family pictures. Here is what we ended up with. I decided pictures of Ma either have her eating or frowning. Well, our family pictures have her frowning. We also tried to get some pictures of Ryan and I but they kind of turned out cheesy. Better luck next time right?

Thanksgiving in I.F.

We had a great time in Idaho Falls for Thanksgiving. We rode 4 wheelers, made graham cracker houses, played with cousins, and ate lots!

Love my silly bugs

Pres the Photographer

Apparently I take a lot of pictures. So much that my 3 year old is infatuated with the camera. Every time he sees it, he grabs it and takes pictures. He takes them of the floor, his toys, our family, etc. Some of them turn out pretty good. Here are a couple.

Really behind/ stamps, silly kids

I haven't been very good at posting lately, so excuse me while I play catch up and boggle your eyes with many pictures!

When Grandma and Grandpa were here a while ago, Pres and Grandpa had fun putting together a footstool for Pres. Thanks again!

Ma and Pres had fun playing with some stamps. This is what they did when I walked out of the room. (Don't know if you can see the one on Pres' nose. Apparently Ma thinks it is makeup!

Ma and the snow hat

Ma loves a snow hat that a friend passed down to her. She asks to put it on all the time. Yesterday she had on a short sleeve shirt, leggings, and her snow hat inside the house while she played with playdough. What a silly girl. Can you tell she was concentrating on her playdough (she sticks out her tongue when she is thinking).


We woke up to snow the other morning and the kids were so excited. We still had a little left on our back lawn where the shadows hit it. Pres said today, "that's the best snow I ever seen!". They went outside and played in it for a little while until they got bored. There wasn't enough to make a snowman or snowballs, so they didn't last long outside. Before they came in though, Pres decided to throw some at me, hence the white spots of light on one of the pictures. Fun times, and more to come.

Hmmm, what to be for Halloween??

preschool halloween fun

Preston's preschool had a Halloween day and everyone dressed up and did a little parade for the moms. Here is Pres with his classmates and friend Cannon.

Pumpkin fun

We go together with some friends and carved pumpkins. The kids all had fun painting their pumpkins, and paper, and everything else.
