Christmas Tree

Well we finally got around to putting our tree up today. Now it really seems like Christmas. We've had our outside lights up for a couple of weeks and are SO glad we did it before Thanksgiving, before it got cold! We've had a TON of rain today. It has been raining since noon and it is 9:00 PM and still raining! What a wonderful blessing! Andrew and I are both feeling pretty miserable with colds so it was a good day to stay inside, listen to Christmas music, decorate the tree, and drink hot chocolate.

We had a great Thanksgiving at my mom's house this year. We were supposed to have it at our house but were in the middle of replacing all of our kitchen and bathroom countertops and sinks and since I didn't have any sinks that were working on Thanksgiving we decided to do it at my mom's. It was a small group with just Ryan and I and our 2 kids, Mom, Alex, Nicole, and Zaylee and Dad. But we had TONS of yummy, yummy food! We are finally almost done with all the countertops and getting the sinks hooked up so I will be posting some before and after pictures soon! I am SO excited!!

I think they are about the same weight but Hannah is quite a bit taller. I'm sure glad I didn't have twins! I can't even imagine!

Happy Babies!

These are our nieces Zaylee (Nicole's baby), on the left and Hannah (Cindy's baby) on the right. They are only one week apart in age, Hannah is older. They had fun playing together at my mom's house on Saturday after Thanksgiving!Look at them holding hands! How cute!

Veterans Day at Zion National Park

Sunday we got free entrance into the park for Veterans Day. Since Ryan has never been there (well his mom said they drove through once when he was little but he didn't remember it) we decided to take the afternoon and go. We had a great time driving through the tunnels and hiking the Emerald Pools. (Sammy did not think this was fun, but Andrew had a blast!) Ryan and I plan to continue the celebration with a free dinner from Golden Corral tonight!

Veterans Day

We started out celebrating Veterans Day when Ryan walked in the St. George City Veterans Day parade on Saturday.

Andrew is back in his costume again this morning. He says he is just getting ready for Halloween next year!


Well here they are, Batman and Bat Princess. I've never been a big Halloween person and Ryan isn't much of a holiday person at all, but Halloween happens to be one holiday he truly LOVES! So as you can see from the pictures he even dressed up and even though the kids weren't feeling the greatest he made sure they got in the mandatory 3 hours of trick-or-treating which resulted in WAY too much candy! I think they each had over 200 pieces of candy and that is just what they didn't eat last night and doesn't include anything they got from their school parties. Guess it is going to be time for another trip to the dentist! Hope you all had a great Halloween!
