Halloween Festivities!

Drake decorated most of the porch this year all by himself...pretty spooky!

Halloween Party at Grandmas---gotta love the games and face painting!

Shaffer Elementary Halloween Parade...
Wesley as "the Birdman" on the Denver nuggets.
This is Drake's teacher--pretty cute.
and Drake as Dracula
and you can't forget our sweet little monkey!
Charly was so excited this year to be a BYU cheerleader. She would go around telling people, "I know how to spell BYU--"B" "Y" "U", isn't she so smart--she was sure a cute little cheerleader at least( I personally loved the costumes this year--I think I spent a total of 15.00 for everyone all together--did lots of borrowing this year and the kids weren't really begging for pricey costumes anyway--it was great!)

Oh wait--I forgot our superhero of the family.....introducing the real "BATMAN." Well he maybe wasn't the real BATMAN, but he was the BIGGEST BATMAN I've ever seen. He did look pretty good I'll have to say! I borrowed a vintage baseball uniform and wore my soccer cleats--the easiest costume ever! This was a great Halloween!
The Batmobile is off to the trunk or treat!

Happy Birthday Wesley!

My sweet little boy turned 7 years old. Wesley is as good as they come, he sure brings a great spirit in our home--he's our little peacemaker and a great big brother especially with Brigg! He's got something special for little babies, he loves them and they love him. We are sure grateful to have Wesley in our family! Happy Birthday Bud!

Random Sweetness!!

7 1/2 months

Uncle Luke and Brigg--best buds!!
Luke is so sweet with Brigg, everytime he comes over he is holding Brigg.
He just loves him and I think the feeling is mutual!

My Beautiful SIS!!

So my sister, Sarah, won some photo shoot from her friend so I just had to steel these most amazing pics from her to post!! I might be biased being her sister and all, but HOLY COW--isn't she gorgeous!!! I just love all these, I have the most beautiful sisters, they are all so amazing!! Sarah just moved far away(at least from me) I wish I could see her more, she is such an amazing example to me and she is so smart--way smarter than me and she is my younger sister--I know-- hard to believe!! Anyway--I hope she doesn't kill me for posting these, but I keep telling her to forget about taxes(or whatever she does) let's get that modeling career going!!!

St. George Marathon

Well--I did it again....I ran my second marathon. After telling myself I would never run another marathon again, I figured the best thing to get back into shape after having a baby would be just that. So the training began and oh how I dreaded it every morning. One of the hardest things to do at least for me, is starting to run again after having a baby. I was soooo out of shape it was pathetic. But after a couple months of figuring out how to run again, I started the training process with my good friend Rachel. She pushed me so hard which is what I needed to even feel like I could run 26 miles. She is crazy, and does everything she does perfect and gives it her all ALWAYS! So the only reason I even started this thing was because of her--Thanks Rachel for keeping me going!! The St. George Marathon this year was the hottest it's ever been, after a mile of the race I was already sweating---not good--when you still have 25 miles to go!! Needless to say the heat took its toll on me, I was just dead. I also had another excuse why I was struggling--I had some problems with the balls of my feet during training, so I ended up getting orthotics about 3 weeks before the marathon(not the best idea--but my feet were killing me) long story short..I should have purchased bigger shoes but I didn't, so I payed for it by running with a jammed toe for 15 miles. I always heard of people losing toenails from running, but never had that I know why. My toenail is still there but don't know how much longer it will be!
We had a goal to qualify for Boston, but after I realized that wasn't going to happen, I set a new goal to beat my first time. Well after I realized that wasn't going to happen either, I figured I should aim to get below 4 hours. So I guess it took me 3 tries to finish. I think my time was 3 hr 56 min. Good enough-I'll take it. And as I said before "I will never run another marathon again"(well unless I have any more babies I guess:)

I think this was the only time I had a smile on my face...and that was because I finally saw my hubby and baby at mile 21---way too long. He said he tried so many times to see us, but there were so many people and cars that he couldn't get anywhere! I was so bummed that I only saw him once--I think I was just really spoiled with my first Marathon in Logan where I saw him at every station. He is so nice to support me all the time, I'm sure that wasn't too easy trying to get around with a baby the whole time. If I didn't see them when I did, I don't know if I would have finished-there's just something about seeing a familiar face after all that way-Thanks Babe!

We did it!!
Brigg was such a good sport, he just smiled the whole time and
especially loved the airplane ride.

Dad's Surprise Party

My Dad turned the big 7 0 in Aug, so all of his kids decided to plan a surprise party for him. Every single one of us were there including all 25 grandkids. It was a huge success--he had no idea!! Thanks to my sister Holly who put together this invite...
