Pre Christmas Party

This past weekend we went to my parents house and celebrated christmas early with them and my brothers and their families. It was a really fun time. We had a yummy lunch and then went down on the ice and skated, sledded and played a little hockey.

Pacen and Jaxon had never skated. They did pretty good other than a few bumps and bruises!

We did the Nativity Story and dressed up. My mom was the Angel!

We played lots of fun games that my mom had prepared like christmas memory and a gift unwrap game.

After all that my Dad handed out stockings that Santa had brought early! It was so much fun and just makes me even more excited for CHRISTMAS! Hope everyone is ready!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving like we did. We started out having dinner at the Rogers house. We had a fabulous turkey dinner with all the sides and don't forget the PIE!

The Rogers gang including Grandma Pace.

Friday we went up into the mountains with some of Cory's brothers and their families and cut down a lovely christmas tree. The kids had a blast having a snowball fight with their uncles and enjoying hot chocolate and donuts!

That night we met up with my family and went to the light parade, short and sweet is how I'll describe it! Cory and his brothers went to the BYU game on Saturday which ended with a win!

This is the finished project "OH CHRISTMAS TREE" I had lots of help decorating. It smells good and the kids love to water it! HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Bronco's vs Steelers

Last weekend Cory went on vacation with his brother Brook. They bought tickets to the Broncos/Steelers game in Colorado back in July. Cory is a huge Bronco's fan and Brook is a huge Steelers fan!

This is them in front of the stadium, I was so proud of them for taking pictures!

Cory said there were alot of Steelers fans there.

The team came out of the tunnel, I thought this was a way cool picture. This was Cory's first NFL game and probably not his last! They had a great time hanging out together even though the Bronco's lost.

He brought back all of us a surprise from the game. Go Bronco's

Halloween 2009

Friday night we went to a Halloween Party but first we went to dinner in our costumes with Willy Wonka and her Oompa Loompa!

Me and Cory were escaped convicts. My mom made my costume for me. The party was so much fun, there were about 20 couples, we played really funny games and had yummy treats.
The kids had a great Halloween starting with school parties and a Halloween Carnival friday night.

Jaxon was a Knight in Shining Armor. (Thanks to grandma Bev!)
Pacen was a Black Widow (again Grandma helped with this one)

and Brecken wouldn't dress up but he let me draw a web on his face and wore his halloween shirt!

We went to a Trunk or Treat with some friends in town and the kids filled their buckets really fast.

We ended the evening with dinner and donut eating at our friends house! It was a very fun night. Now I need to hide all the Candy!!!

The boys love going and finding just the right one

Deer Hunt Weekend

This last Saturday was the opening day for the Deer Hunt. Cory didn't get a tag so he took Jaxon and went with his brothers Jordan and Jared. They went to Beaver and had great success! Both of them got deer that morning and Cory and Jaxon were able to be there for the fun.
Jordan told Jaxon it was tradtion to rub the deer blood under your eyes after you kill one. Thus the picture with my sister in law's little brother and Jaxon and Jordan.

Jaxon was so excited that Cory took him to go with the guys. He even took him to get the food and treats before.

Deer Camp. Cory's parents, Savannah, Emmett, her little brother and my nephew Quincy also went friday night too! The weather was so great for them.

Jordan and Jared with their bucks. Pretty cool! Me and the other two boys just hung out and watched movies. Fun Fun.

Fall Camping

This weekend we went to Holden Mountain to go camping with my family. Holden in just past Fillmore if your going North. It was so pretty with the fall leaves. Thats my dad and Brecken in front of our veiw from camp.

This is Pacen posing in the leaves.

There was the coolest trail that was right by our camp and we rode 4 -wheelers on (thank you Jordan for the use of yours). It went way high and the views were amazing! There were several places you had to drive through a shollow creek that the kids loved.

Cory and Pacen on the 4 -wheeler. The path was covered in fall leaves, it was like a painting.

The weather was great and we sat around the fire listening to conference.

Yummy Cookie Recipe

Joslyn wanted this recipe so I thought I'd share it on my Blog
Chewy Oatmeal Cookies
Beverly Allred
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes
1/2 cup butter shortening

1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 tsp. soda

1 cup chocolate chips
Combine shortening and sugar together and beat until mixed. Add vanilla and eggs, beat until light in color. Dissolve soda in water and add, add salt, flour and oats a little at a time and mix well. Add chips and stir.
Place on cookie sheet (I like to use parchment paper) and bake. Let cool a little before taking on the baking sheet.

One for the memory book

I needed to do a post so I thought I'd share this picture we had done at the Iron County Fair this year. Brecken was so scared to see us all dressed up so he freaked out the whole time. He'll love this one when he is older! Good thing we weren't pioneers. I think this one will be great the scrap book.

Who do the boys look like?

I thought this might be a fun post...I was wondering if you thought the boys look more like their mom or dad?

These are some pics of me and Cory when we were younger

Labor Day Weekend

Name this place....Yes its at the Zoo! Saturday we went up to the Hogle Zoo with my family. Its like a tradition to have your picture taken with your head in the lions mouth.

Brecken loved the zoo. He kept saying wook (look) at everything.

Jaxon and Tyler in front of the baby giraffe.

Cory was a good sport to pose. He measured up pretty close? Maybe he's part Ape? ha ha

Grandpa and the kids

We rode the merry go round.

Thanks to Grandpa and Grandma for paying our way in and Marci for lunch we sure had a fun time getting together up there!

The kids were beat they fell asleep right after we left.

Monday morning we went to the parade in Parawon and met up with the Morris's and Winter's. The parade was a little long but always a good time. We walked around the fair and went to have lunch in the park after. Thanks guys for the fun!
