Family Pics

This past Saturday We took family pictures for this years Christmas cards. My uncle Roger and Carol were nice enough to offer there house for us to take our family pictures at, it was absolutely beautiful. We stated out taking real professional and classy looking ones, and after about 100 or so, me and my siblings got a little restless and started taking really silly ones, my mom wasn't too thrilled! But we all had fun and got allot of very nice pictures!

Mike and I had a incredibly AWESOME Halloween this year. First Mike and I went and picked out pumpkins and brought them home and carved them, then when we got home we realized all we had were kitchen knives, which made it incredibly hard to carve a pumpkin with if you can only imagine. I carved a cat and Mike carved his work logo. Then Halloween night one of my friends threw a Halloween/costume party. Mike went as the Joker, and I went as Cat Women. Mike's costume turned out incredibly awesome, you couldn't even recognize him. We had allot of fun hanging out with allot of my good friends.

Pumpkin Guts!

Fun weekend!

On Friday night Mike's High school (West Wood) played my high school (Mountain View) in football, so we decided to get a bunch of people together to go to the game. A few of my friends and their husbands and my family and Mike's family all went. Even though all mike's family went to west wood, we turned them into Toros, even little Rylee supported MTV by wearing red and blue ribbons in her hair and I taught her how to do the toro sign and yell "TOROS" It was so cute, even though it wasn't really even a close game because my high school totally smashed Mike's, we still had allot of fun! Then on Saturday night Mike's brother John's ward had a Halloween block party, so we got to see all our nieces and nephews dressed up in their Halloween costumes, they all looked so cute! They had a fun little train and a bunch of little things going on for all the kids, it was fun, I always love seeing my nieces and nephews and family, we had a very fun weekend!

October is finally here!!! I always like once October finally comes because then all the holidays are here and there is always so much fun stuff going on to do! Not to mention the beautiful weather, It's finally starting to cool down here (YAY!) This past weekend Tisha, Ryan, Rylee, Crew, Mike's mom Sharon, Mike's cousin Brittney, and Mike and I all thought it would be fun to take the little kido's to a pumpkin patch! They had one not to far from mine and mike's house that had activities for the kids, we got to go on a hay ride, and each of the kids got to decorate a pumpkin! We all had alot of fun. Since Mike and I don't have kids of our own yet, we LOVE spoiling and spending as much time with our nieces and nephews that we can. After spending time at the pumpkin patch we all went to dinner, and Mike and I had Little Rylee spend the night at our house. We watched High School Musical 2 all night long and Rylee would make me stand on top of my fire place with her and dance to every song, her favorite one is huma huma nucka nucka ocanawa, or something like that?

Sun Devil Fans!!!

Mike and I just had our 2nd year anniversary on Aug. 10th (man the time flys by), But anyway, for Mike's anniversary gift I got us season tickets to the ASU football games. Mike's always been a football fanatic so he was so excited that I got the tickets, he kinda reminds me of a little boy when he gets excited about things, he went and bought us ASU jerseys and we went all decked out to our first game, and of Course the sun devils won! GO SUN DEVIL"S!!!!

Breaking Dawn

Me and my sisters Brittney and Brianna, and a couple of Brittney's friends all went to the midnight release party for Breaking Dawn at Borders. And the reason I am barely getting this post up now is because I have been so busy reading it I have not had the time to even go on my computer. I stayed up all night the night I got it reading till 5:30, got an hour of sleep, and then went to work, you may call me crazy but I wanted to hurry and finish it so no one would give anything away. Me and Britt also got a little bored at the party so we entertained ourselves by taking some really corny pictures!

4th of July

For 4th of July Mike and I went to Heber with Tisha, Ryan, Rylee, and Crew. We became one close family on the way up there, all 6 of us decided to all try to take one car and fit into Tisha's car. It was me Tisha and Ryan all in the front seat, and Mike in the back with two car seats, we must have looked hilarious to people driving by. The trip up seemed endless but once we got there we had alot of fun, we watched a parade, went out on a quad ride, and then went to an awesome fire work show at night. We had alot of fun on our little outing!
