K's 23rd Birthday

K's birthday dinner at Settebellos!

Saturday we celebrated at home watching conference. In between sessions she opened her presents.

We had to do a scavenger hunt for her to this bike in the basement. It was fun!

During priesthood we went out to Leatherby's and had dessert and afterwards went to DI. Don't judge that's what K wanted to do and we were all fine with it.

On Sunday. We celebrated K and Alex's birthdays together. It's been like 15 years since they have celebrated together. Happy day!!!

And the cake for this year was... Harry Potter chocolate layer cake.

The whole gang. 

We love K so much! She is a wonderful oldest child. She is a good example to all of us. She is so creative and talented with everything that she does. We look forward to her graduation in June. Thank you for being so awesome K! We love you!!!

September 2014

Labor Day at Red Butte Gardens! And just for the record her shirt said "I love my aunt!"
The video K made of Labor Day:

The Ogden Temple Open House. 

A while ago the kids bought tickets for Comic Con and there was one day that they weren't using them so we decided to go in for a little bit and see what all of the hype was about. The rest of the time the kids went. 

S's 18th birthday! Aghh I hate posting about my kids getting older! But S made it to 18. She is a beautiful and talended daughter. She is very creative and we are lucky to have her with us this school year while she attends the U. For her birthday she went to Comic Con with her siblings and then on Saturday night we went to eat at Johnny Rockets. S is not a big photo person so we didn't get any pictures there. But we had a great time!

Sunday we celebrated her birthday with everyone else. So she pretty much celebrated for 3 days!

At the State Fair. Haven't been in like 20 years. And we only went cause Z came through with tickets for us.

The Suicide Awareness Walk. I organized a group to walk together. I had a long list of students sign up and only a few showed up but it was great to promote awareness no matter what.  

Our door into the counseling center got stuck and we coudn't get out for about 1/2 hour. It was funny...well not really but we coudn't stop laughing! 

K, S and I had the opportunity to go to the General Women's meeting at the Conference Center. It was so nice to be there together!

August 2014

G took swimming lessons 3 different weeks this summer. She loves swimming and thanks to her teacher she has improved so much!

This is KC's birthday family picture!

Happy Birthday to KC!!! He is the best!!! He is so generous and kind and service oriented. He is also so smart and can fix about 99% of everything. He can also be so crazy and silly but my life would be boring without him!

We all volunteered for the Tour of Utah.

G's first day of school. She is year round this year so she started on August 11. Two weeks before the traditional students. She is now in 2nd grade. Growing up fast!

KC and I went to see Wicked at the Capitol Theatre! It was amazing!!!

Ogden Temple open house with KC's parents and Jef and Trevar. Beautiful temple. Beautiful day. Beautiful family!

The Salt Lake Parade of Homes. This one had an indoor tennis court! The cousins love to go around to the various houses together. After this year we might have to re-evaluate and see if it's safe going to these homes with them.

C's 20th birthday. C brings so much joy into our lives. She is fun and loves life! Since she is down at school we don't see her too often but anytime she is home we enjoy every minute.

Cake inspired by Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

First day of school for S at the U.

CR's first day at a sophomore.

July 2014

Independence Day began with the annual parade. For the first time in a long time we didn't have anybody in it but I guess we are crazy cause we still went. Gotta keep up with traditions!

Another tradition is to go to Layton Park and hang out while Zildy facepaints. Kids were a little tired!

At the Stadium of Fire with Carrie Underwood!!!

Dance party in the parking lot afterwards while the traffic dies down.

S and I went to the University of Utah for two days for an orientation. This will be S's home for the next four years.

My Birthday!!! Kind of a sad day this year. I bought my own little cake. No presents. No family. The only exception was K did come and celebrate with me on Friday. KC was at scout camp so he had not time to get anything ready. Z and my parents were out of town. I know pitty me! Not really that bad of a dayI just get myself down for silly reasons sometimes. I know I'm loved and I'm happy for my life. I have more blessings than I deserve and yet sometimes I still get sad. I have learned how to get out of it faster now, I guess that's a good thing about getting older!

I did go celebrate my birthday with Pres. Uchtdorf at the Dee Events Center with thounsands of people. I just pretended that they were all there for me :)

Completely full! For my party!

My birthday presents from KC:

We went to see Mary Poppins for KC and my birthday combined. It was fun and a great show!

I love my family!!!


After!!! A beautiful picture of the Salt Lake Temple!

We did celebrate the following sunday with the entire clan. And I didn't have to cook or clean!

July buddies. And let me just say that S made my awesome chocolate cake!

Lagoon day with the younger kids.

Back to Cheyenne for Frontier Days!
So we were walking around the park and I entered a drawing with one of the radio stations. I don't even remember which one but I won tickets to Brad Paisley! Fun! We were surrounded by drunk people in the party zone but it was fun nontheless since I was safe with KC.

The pancake breakfast.

Crazy kids in the middle of the parade route!

The cousins have so much fun together!

The awesome grandparents!!!

Ice cream at McDonalds.

I don't even know what to say about this picture. Christian is just crazy!

At Seven Peaks Waterpark.

The Potter Run! K's first 5K. We just came to support her. But she did awesome!!!
