Like Mother like son!

Today i tried about 3 times to get braxten to take a nap. Finally i gave up and decided to make some lunch as i was making lunch braxten was eating some crackers and i look over and braxten head is bobbing. He was totally asleep but he was still chewing. I had to wait until he finished chewing the cracker that was in his mouth to put him in his bed. HIs face is covered in crackers and he is fast asleep!!! When i was little i fell asleep almost every night at the dinner table. i guess he is starting a little early.

Im too tired to eat!

Hungy hungry Hippo!!!

Braxten is kinda showing some interest in walking so i thought i better bring out the hungry hungry hippo. Braxten loves to push it back and forth.

My little Pirates!

Jaten and braxten actually dressed up like this for the birthday party but they spent the week before playing dress up with them. They love to play buried treasure.

Because i coach volleyball my kids are now gym rats! So Jaten and Braxten had to spend halloween in Burley at State Volleyball. The boys spent the day in the gym and between games we took them to a truck o treat. The boys came out with more candy then they would of if they had been home going trick or treating. Everyone at the hotel gave out bags full of candy and grandma lynette and grammy jody spoiled them to no end. i think over all both boys had a great time. Jaten was mator the tow truck and Braxten was a lion. They both looked so cute.
Jaten also got to go to the carnival in arco the weekend before halloween. He dressed up as a gangster and we all went with baylee, tenlee and Kambree. They all had a lot of fun. The babies got tired but at the end they all loved it.

Happy Birthday Jaten.

Jaten is now 4 years old! Can you believe it! His Birthday started on friday when we went to Jack Pot for dallins football game. Baylee and Tenlee were there to celebrate with him. WE all went out to dinner and sang happy birthday to him. Jaten and Baylee are the best of friends and if there is any one that he would want to celebrate with it would be her. Who woul;d of thought that we would celebrate a 4 year olds birthday in Jack pot!!! Not you ideal location! It was fun anyways. Sunday evening we had another Birthday party with some of the family. The kids had a lot of fun and of course jaten came out with a ton of gifts.

who lives in a pineapple under the sea?

sponge bob square pants! This was my attempt to make his birthday cake it turned out pretty cute! I do have to say that it was harder than jaris' wedding cake that i made! It was made out of the same kind of cake so it tasted great!

Is this for me.

Braxten just loves birthday parties he thought it was all for him he ate lots of ice cream and cake and played with all of the balloons.

He is so spoiled!!!

It was more like christmas then it was his birthday with all of the gifts he opened. He loved every minute of it!

So Much FUN!!!

I Dont know what i would do if i didn't have the Redfish Lake Vacations!

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Friends for ever!

Kambree and Braxten
(So tired after a long camping trip)
Baylee and Jaten will always be the best of friends.

So long Sun...Hello Snow

I never thought that with in 3 days we could be getting a sun burn to the next day we could be waking up to snow. I guess it was all worth it to have our last vaction of the year spent at Redfish Lake! Saturday was great it was warm out side and we spent a lot of time in the water. Sunday was a little colder but it was kind of nice to just sit around camp. Of course there cant be a Redfish trip without a Flog tournament. That night Ryan and Mckinzie and Ivie and Josh went home because it was suppose to rain that night. Well there was lots of rain and even snow Monday morning when we woke up. We started to clean up that morning to go home but its kind of hard to keep 2 boys dry and warm and still pack things. Thanks to Jaris and Jimmy they came and got the boys and brought them back to the motor home that Jaris and Jimmy's friends had brought. Thanks! It was so nice to have the whole clan there. So our last trip of the year was worth all the rain and snow to be together.

Of Course when you have a family like i do when it comes to water skiing there isn't much that can stop them from going including snow and 35 degree weather. At 12:00 noon Dustin, Devin and Dad were in the freezing water, water skiing! It was so beautiful to see the boys skiing with the snow in the back ground. I hope it was worth it.

He's into everything!!!

Braxten is now getting in to everything that he can get his hands on. He can get to just about anything if he wants to. Right now he is rolling over like crazy both from his back to his belly and his belly to his back. He crawls onto his knees and scoots every where. He loves to eat everything so i am always checking to see if he has anything in his mouth. He is getting so fun he will climb up on my knees and he pulls himself up on everything. I'm not sure if im ready to deal with him crawling every where!!!

new pics and stories

Fun in the Sun!!!

Last weekend we set up one of those bid water play park slides. It was so fun!!! We had dustin's neices and nephews so it wasn't very hard to entertain them!!!

Skin and bone!!!

Jaten is so skinny that he is wearing Braxten's sweat pants!!! Pretty sad huh!!! it doesn't matter how much i make him eat he has too much energy and burns it all off!! Maybe one of these days he will gain some weight!!!

Messy to clean!!!

Braxten just loves real food right now! His favorite right now is cheetos. Oh so good but very messy. They are worth it!!!

His next favorite thing on his list is cleaning up those cheetos, by taking a big boys bath. He just loves taking baths with Jaten they have so much fun. Jaten sings to him and plays with him the whole time. He cries when i take him out. He doesn't need warm water i guess to want to stay in.

Red Fish Lake Trip

As always they red fish trips are always a blast but this one started out chaotic. We planned on leaving friday afternoon after dustin got home from work but at about 10:30 thursday night he got a wild hair and decided that we were going to leave that night. So of course i had nothing packed. So everything got thrown into a bag and 2 hours later we left. Devin was with us so he kept dustin awake and then devin drove the last part. So we ended up their really late. I thought that maybe they would want to sleep in, and they probably would of but about 7:00am dust heard a familiar voice. It was Ryan sitting out on the picnic table just waiting for someone to wake up. THey all skiied until 11:00 and then ryan had to leave to go back to work. Someof our friends came up to spend sometime on the beach and stayed until sunday. They had never been there before so they really loved it. It really was a great trip Jimmy and Jaris came saturday afternoon! Jimmy is now Jaten's favorite!!! Saturday night we built a fire on the beach and cooked our foil dinners while everyone skiied. Even I skiied which was a first on one ski!! I'm officially part of the family!!!

After the Micro Burst

Thats what happens when you loose at a water fight! Better luck next time
Jaten spent everyday all day in playing in the sand and running to and from the water. He just loves being in the sun!!!
Braxten just loved all of the attention that he got this weekend. There was always some one for him to play with. He is now a little tan baby!!!

After the Micro burst we were evicted from our campsite so we had to find a place to 30+ people. Thats not easy on fourth of july weekend! We managed to all fit into 2 campsites. There were tents scattered every where. The rest of the trip worked out we spent some time on the beach and ate tons. (thanks wayne for doing all of the cooking!)

Poor tent

Vacation #2...Red Fish Lake

We got home from Wolf Creek and left 3 days later to go to Red Fish Lake with Dustin's Family and a friend that he works with. We left late wednesday night and got to our camp ground and set up our tent and ate scones at 1:00 am. Kinda late but Wayne dustins friend loves to cook and that was on the menu for that night. Thursday Started out good the boys went out on the water in the morning and then we hit the beach in the afternoon. Everything thing was good until we got done roasting marshmellows and then we were hit by a micro burst(a tornado that comes down and spreads out.) We had a tree land on one of our tents with 2 of wayne's kids in there. After that happened we ran to the trailer and decided that it wasn't safe either. We hoped in a vehicle and tried to drive out but we were stopped along with everyone else by trees on the roads. No one could get out or get in. Thousands of trees had been blown over in about 5-10 minutes. Here are some pictures of the damage. The pictures dont even hold a candle to what really happened.

Uncle ry and Jaten had matching shorts so of course i had to take a picture of them together in their shorts!!! He just oves his uncle Ry!!!
Did you get tickets to my gun show!!!

Vacation #1...Wolf Creek

A couple of weeks ago we went on a family vacation up to wolf creek. It was really nice to be able to just kick back and relax. We left wednesday at about noon to go she dustin's sister Debra. She lives in American Fork which is about 85 miles from ogden. We went and spent the night with her and headed back to ogden the next morning to meet with my family up in wolf creek. We stayed in the condos and it was great to be able to sleep in beds and take showers.

Jaten and Baylee spent the whole time attatched to one another! Theye spent all of their time in the pool and runing around the condos. Braxten also enjoyed the pool and loved all of the attention from everyone!!! (thanks for all the help)

All of the boys went and skiied down at the lake and played some tennis and raquet ball all weekend. We also some mini bikes that everyone cruised around on. All in all we had a great time together and we hope we can do it again next year!!!

Tag1. What was I doing 10 years ago: well i was in 7th grade so my onnly concern was what boy i was going to like that day, what to wear to school how short i could wear my shorts. I like consisted of school and sports and boys and thats about it.

2. What is on my to-do list for today?1. Take jaten to the dentist, price everything for thursdays, and prepare my self to pay lots of money for all of the dental work i have to get done.

3. What would I do if I suddenly became a billionaire?First thing i would do is pay off all of my debt, then i would build a new house and theni would take everyone on a cruise to somewhere warm. No snow in June!!! Then i would invest in my kids schooling and then put the rest away for a rainy day.(Probably keep it under my mattress.)

4. 3 Bad habits: (Just 3?) 1. I always leave the microwave door open, im not sure why i do it's not hard to shut but i still do it. 2.Dusting, I hate to dust and i always have something more important to do besides dusting. 3. my car doesn't stay very clean because i always have so much to pack in with two boys that the mess stays in there until the next time when i say that i will clean it up but it happens again i have way to much stuff to bring in.
5. Places I've lived: Mackay, Idaho Falls, Arco and mackay again.
7. Things people don't know about me: * I love cowboy hats. * i think that the world is going to blow up from all of the bad stuff that is happening right now. *i love plain melted cheese by its self.* I watch one soap a day. * i want to learn how to cook and bake good. i finally learned how to make rolls and i do ok but i cant figure out the chocolate chip cookies.

I Shake my little Toosh on the Cat Walk!!

The boys would kill me if they knew that i was putting this on line for everyone to see but it's so funny that i could let it go to waste. I spent the weekend getting my closet cleaned out and getting clothes to get rid of. So that night i had them all bagged up and ready to go until the boys found the bag and wanted to try on the pants!!! So the fashion show began...Dustin, Dallin and Devin became models.

As the night went on we had a BBQ and some more entertainment by Dallin (Daisy) Duke!!!

"Thes boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do, one of these days theses boots are gonna walk all over you."

Giggles and Grins!

Jaten just loves playing with Braxten, but his favorite thing is to get him to giggle. It doesn't take much to get him to giggle he thinks everything is funny! The other day Braxten was playing with his toys and Jaten loves to play with him. Braxten started giggling at Jaten and Jaten just ate that up. There was no stopping from there. Jaten just kept playing with Braxten as long as he was laughing and He was laughing as well.

Cowboy Up!

Dallin and Braxten at the track meet. Doesn't he look cute in that cowboy hat. The girls love the cowboys!!! At least that's what Dallin thinks!!!

Like brother like uncle!

as you can see i have two little boys that are going to grow up being just like dallin and devin. Jaten just like Devin and Braxten just like Dallin. These two little boys look up to these two uncles. Jaten is always saying he wants to grow big like devin. He has long long legs like devin! Braxten already looks like dallin did in his baby pictures. Just like dallin is so much different than devin braxten is so much different than jaten. 4 boys that are so different but so very much a like. Jaten and Braxten have a lot to look up to. Thanks boys for being their idols.

I love to ride!


Jaten just loves being outside especially if it with is dad. He loves riding his 4-wheeler round and round the yard. He runs the battery dead everyday because he rides it so much. When the battery is dead he moves on to Dustin's little 70.(i think that's what it is). Dust and jaten have so much fun riding around.

Jaten Also loves being with ihs papa. He is really enjoying papa being home for 4 days at a time during hte week. I guess you could say he is his little shadow. They eat pictics in the garage so on 4-wheeler rides, fix cars, and the best part of being his shadow is going to town to throw the disc with dallin. He should be a super star by the time he gets old enough to throw in a track meet. He carries his frizbee around with him everytime he gets to go to town. Its his own little disc. He also sneeks into the ring when no one is watching so that he can get in his practice time. By the end of the day he is pooped and falls asleep in the car on the way home from practice. By the time i go to pick him up he hides because he doesn't want to leave(i see how i rate!)

I LOVE Cereal. Not as much as CHEESE CAKE!

Braxten is getting big enough to start to eat real food! He has loved every minute of it. He likes apple sauce and cereal, but the thin ghe loves the most is cheese cake!!! I dont feed him cheese cake everyday but he got it on bella's birthday. I thought he was going to do anything he could to geth that cheese cake(bite fingers, take spoons and yell as loud as he can.) He loves birthdays even more now!!!

thanks to dustin I am now known as the Shower Queen! Dustin thinks that it is all fun in games until he throws his wife out of the shower. Dustin thinks its so funny to tease me and pretend to push me out of the shower. Well this time her really did push me out. along with the shower curtain as well. Water went every where and i ended up with a bruise on my arm and dustin ended up with me yelling at him! The next day Dustin had to share a safty share. usually you talk about stuff out at work safty. This time his share was to be more careful in the shower. So now im known as the shower queen with all of the guys that dustin works with. Thanks cleve for the nick name!!!

Monday, April 28, 2008


Last week the family got together and celebrated Grandmas Lynette's birthday. She had 2 cakes to celebrate with. Too many cakes for so little candles! Dustin's family just loves to sing happy birthday and they really get into it. Just a little sneek peak of all the hymas birthdays, and anyone else who has a hymas singing to them.

This could be my last weekend to go sledding!!!

Every weekend for the past 6 weeks i heard "can i go sledding this could be my last time to go before the snow melts?" I heard this week after week until last week when i knew it would be his last week no matter what. snow or no snow!!! So i became a widow all winter long!!! So here is to Dustins final ride of the season.


Jaten just loves making messes but he likes it even more if he knows that he wont get in trouble doing it. So instead of him making messes on his own we made cinnamon rolls together. He loved spreading around the apple sauce and butter. That was the first time we have ever made cinnamon rolls but they turned out really yummy!

Friday, April 25, 2008

Everyday when dustin gets home he spends time with his two boys! Jaten gets so excited for his daddy to come home everyday. At 5:00 everynight jaten makes sure all of his toys are cleaned up and that he is ready to play hide and go seek, baseball or wrestling on the floor together.Braxten enjoys him holding him and making him giggle. Making him giggle is one of the best parts of having kids.
