To anyone needing a laugh who also LOVES BACON!!!!

I couldn't make it fit full size, so I had to shrink it down, which made the writing to small to read, so you'll have to click on it to see it full size...... that's what she said :)

A little laugh therapy to help us get over the loss to the Yewts!!!!!

Did you hear that Max Hall wasn't allowed to pass the sacrament in Church on Sunday. The bishop was afraid that he'd get intercepted.

The teacher tried to give me a Hall pass, but it was intercepted.

Did you hear that BYU has officially filed a protest with the NCAA regarding the Utes cheating during the BYU game. They were playing with 12 men on the field!!!

Anyway, I hope we can all get a little chuckle and move on with our lives, and begin counting down the REMATCH in less than 365 days when we can POUND THE YEWTS!!!!!!

Halloween Fun

Our halloween festivities started on Wednesday when we had a halloween party with Julia's preschool group. So, off i went with my little puppies..how cute are they! At the party we played a wrap the mummy game-Julia opted out so Aj was up-he did great!

They also had a pinata which was fun. AJ felt like quite the stud that he was the oldest boy there-he definately helped to finish it off! :)

Then Friday came...We had a blast at AJ's school-so much fun that i didn't really have a chance to take any pix! I organized and ran AJ's class party and thought i was tired when it was done...until the halloween parade around the school. They went in and out of the different classes and Aj's class was the last class and kept getting distracted and split up. I was at the end of the class trying to keep everyone in line and moving-THAT was a workout! So by the time we cleaned up the classroom and got home, i was ready to sit for a few minutes before we had to get ready to Trick or Treat...BUT, Julia decided that her costume was "too itchy" and she didn't want to put it on, so my "sit and do nothing time" turned into "Julia's costume plan B prep". WE tried on EVERY costume in her dress up box and decided on snow white because it was the least "itchy"
SO..... FINALLY we were ready to trick or treat! We went around our neighborhood and the kids got a TON of candy just in our little neighborhood!

After we hit all the townhomes, we headed out to Orem to to the Jenson Halloween event! How cute is "Ba-Pa's" face when he saw the kids at the door! :)

Here is our little family in our costumes!

So after eating chili and decorating some cookies, all the cousins headed out to trick or treat around the neighborhood...How cute are these kids! (Kyle was so proud of his "la-la" costume)

And Julia was killing me- she kept right up with Aj and the boys-she was running from one house to the next and yelling "happy halloween" or "i'm ready to go" while she ran! -she has a BLAST!

Here are the boys..Ryan wasn't there so the Mask made up the fourth spot in the usual "brother" picture! :)

Halloween was such a fun day.....
...and then on Saturday we had a party at church. They had a chili cook-off, a cake walk, decorating cookies, and OBVIOUSLY, face paiting. AJ was so patient and sat to get his face painted the way he requested-VENOM! Not to bad!

So What a week!! It was fun and tiring but all in all a GREAT week!!! and now we will be working on the candy for a while! :)

The Zoo with a Crew!!!

So on Thursday of the UEA break, My friend Heather and I decided to take our kids, with a few extra (her neice and nephew too), to the Zoo. Basically, we are crazy-as you can see with these pictures of 7 kids (ages 6, 5 1/2, 5, 3, 2 1/2, 2, and 2)! YEP-we had our hands full!!!

Even with our crew we rally had a good time. Animals are just so much fun to watch!! The Rhino was a favorite, as well as the Tiger which was totally pacing in front of the window, right in front of the kids. he also got in the water and swam around right in front of the kids. It was really cool.
(And why do i not have pictures of all this cool tiger stuff, you may ask...that would be because we were trying to locate the 2-year-old nephew who wandered off in the 2 seconds that we were gathering the kids...we went the wrong direction the first attempt to find him so when i went back from where we came from to get him, he was down the hill where someone saw me looking and probably my almost-frantic looked and pointed him out! PHEW!!!)

AJ and Julia were sportin their BYU gear because we were going to watch the game at "Ba-pa and Mah-Ma's" after the zoo. So i couldn't resist the BYU-gear-with-the-cougar picture!! (The cougar is above Julia's shoulder-kinda hard to see) And Aj took this great picture of the Cougar. He's pretty good huh?!?!

Another Higlight, of course, is the mural of the gorilla's arm span. All the kids wanted their turn to get a picture (except the youngest who didn't really know any differently!) Here's the gorilla-arm photo shoot!!!

And i just couldn't not put this one in-is that a happy kid or what!!! This was in the playground at the end of the day. -and let me tell you-Heather and i were not looking this chipper and energetic at this point! :)

Beside the trauma of the wondering child, it was a really fun time. The kids had a blast seeing the animals and just being together-it was a fun day!!!

Good thing for "K" cousins!!!

So, AJ sits down to do his homework-a K page-and then he had to think of 3 things (or people) who start with K.

Luckily, he had 3 cousins that fit the bill...here are their pictures-pretty good replicas-huh?!?! :)

CORNBELLY'S-finally a new post!

For Julia's preschool group field trip, we all took the kids to Cornbelly's at Thanksgiving point! Everyone split up so we pretty much just explored the place-just me and the kids, it was fun!

How Fun is this chair?!?!

My little piglets (This is what AJ looks like when he sounds like a pig!)

After our little photo shoot, the kids spotted this cool climbing hay structure thing and off they went. Julia, of course, following right behind AJ like she had been climbing these rope things for years.

They were really cute coming down the slide together. I think Julia was a little nervous about it so AJ was there-The big brother to save the day!!! They can get along so good sometimes...I just LOVE it!!!

We did the corn maze and were pretty successful the first time, in "phase 1" (we went in the entrance and came out the exit fairly quickly) but AJ was ambitious and wanted to do "phase 2" and we weren't quite as successfull (it took us twice as long and we went in and out the entrance!) but we had fun!!!

Julia would run ahead to where there was a turn, whip her head in both directions, turn and say "which way should we go" and then just take off in whatever direction she wanted to! She was so excited-it was really cute! AJ would force his way through every once in a while so he could lead the way!

Here we are on the hayride-so fun! (Doesn't AJ look like he is having a BLAST!! So, not his greates picture ever :)!!)

AJ was the brave one (that's a swap :) huh?) and went on the Cow train. Julia was ok with it until she found out i wasn't going and she bailed!

Julia opted for the stationary cow while AJ was on the go!

Before we went home the kids got to go to the pumpkin patch and pick ANY pumpkin they wanted! They found some good ones!

...and home we went and, OF COURSE, those pumpkins were decorated before Daddy even got home! Pretty goofy HUH?!?!?!

(Do you love the rocks for eyebrows that AJ added this morning!?!?)

Aj and I at the BYU game!!!!!

Ok, So obviously it's been awhile since we've blogged, cuz here are the pictures of the BYU game (Now this is the Northern Iowa game, ya know week 1, almost a month ago!!) I'm just so excited about BYU this year (I guess it's just their turn to go undefeated in the regular season, unlike the Pats this year. Hopefully it ends better for them than it did for the Pats last year!!)

Here we are all ready to go. Aj was so excited when I told him it was time to go he hopped up from the computer and ran to the car. He didn't have his hair done or anything, he was just to excited.

AHHHH: Here is the LOVELY Lavell Edwards Stadium, I'll tell ya, it sure was a sight for sore eyes. (Even sitting as far away from the field as we were, It was a gorgeous sight to see!!)

Here is AJ checking out the cheerleaders......Er I mean checking out the action on the field!!!!! (Right next to AJ was our typical BYU co-ed at the BYU game. OHHHH look theres Rob, he's so cute. Theres Tom, what a cutie, Oh my gosh, he's looking at his watch now, what's he doing that for. (Gag me!!!!!!!)

Here we are in our seats, notice the wall that signifies the back of the stadium right behind us!!!

Here we are after the game. What a perfect day. BYU wins, I was at the game with my son, It was extraordinarily hot that day and we didn't really get sunburned.
