Farmington Canyon

Last Sunday we took a ride up Farmington Canyon to enjoy the fall colors and cool weather. I have been up Farmington Canyon before, a few times, but forgot how terrifying the ride up was. Kelle cried the whole way up. She was scared our car was going to drive off the cliff. I have to admit, the thought crossed my mind a few times. A got car sick, and was also a bit nervous. Although the ride up was terrifying, the ride down didn't seem to bad. The view was amazing! We all enjoyed it once we were on flat ground again.

I took my camera in hopes to get some great pictures. When we got to the top I realized our battery was dying and I had left the memory card at home. These are some pictures we took with our camcorder. The pictures don't show off the beautiful colors.

I can't believe a year has come and gone. With B being my last baby, I just want to hold on to every moment and make it last just a little bit longer. She has been such a joy in our life, so happy and lovable. What a blessing she is to our family.

On B's 1 year birthday I gave her her very own plate of food. We had pasta, peas, and chicken nuggets. She thought she was in heaven, she even licked the plate clean.

B found one of the eggs for the Easter egg hunt. She opened it and stuffed her mouth with the candy before Shane and I had even noticed.

B and her b-day outfit. The theme was bunnies and cupcakes. She is such a cutie!

Easter Morning

I thought it would be fun to make a bunny cake for B's fist b-day since it fell on Easter weekend. The kids really loved it. It was the perfect day!

Fun with Mary Kay

For Motivational Evening, we did a pajama and facial night. It was a lot of fun! I love my Mary Kay girls! After using the Even Complexion Mask. Nice skin ladies!

4th grade ski day

The 4th graders got to go to Snow Basin for the day. It was Mekelle's first time on the slopes, she picked it up very quickly. She kept saying it was so fun, the funnest day ever. That night she thought about her ski trip all night while she slept. The only thing she didn't love was sunburned lips. Sorry Mekelle! My mom and I took a drive to Snow Basin to watch her ski for a couple of hours. It was soooo cold, but the girls didn't seem to mind. I was so excited to watch Mekelle master a sport I absolutely love! You go girl!!

Sledding fun

We went sledding in my brothers back yard. Most people mistake it for a public park, so there is usually a lot of people. We were lucky and had the hill to ourselves. It was a lot of fun. Our parents both stopped by to see the kids go down the hill a few times and then we had hot chocolate with Diana and Dan's family.

Ammon loved the jumps and went off of them over and over. Mekelle even went off a few. One time Shane thought it would be cool to lay in front of the jump and have Ammon jump over him, but the sled stopped on Shane and Ammon flew through the air. It was pretty funny.

Carly and I were sledding buddies. She loved to go down the hill.
