It took a while to finally talk Jake into getting Family pictures but they finally got done. Bekka Ott took them and those of you who know her she does an amazing job!! I was so happy with the pictures. Here are just a few of them.
So the other day Jake took Trey,Brady and I for a ride to find some deer. We went over Crocodile and were having a good time Jake let Trey sit on his lap and drive (we were on a dirt road) and Brady was sitting on my lap in the front trying to find some deer. The road was a little bumpy and Brady hit his head (not very hard) and he started to cry. He gave me the saddest look and said "my head broken!! need new one head"! It was so cute. He was so sure that his head was broken and no good anymore so he needed new one head. He kept saying that over and over need new one head! Some of the things that kids come up with!!
Here are my kiddos all dressed up on Halloween!! We went to the trunk or treat which was great. Then we hit a few houses like grandmas and grandpas. My kids love to go by Jakes mom and dads house because they have a ton of kids come by there and they love to hand out the candy.
Brady is a puppy which is fitting because he likes to pretend that he is a puppy. He will get on all fours and go around barking and when you call him Brady he says no me puppy so you have to call him puppy if you want to get him to do something. It is pretty cute! He did have a black nose but he kept rubbing it off.
Trey wanted to be Iron Man even though he has never seen the movie.
Baylee was easy. She loves to sing and dance around the house and loves it when I put make up on her so we made her a punk rocker. She looks pretty cute and has the attitude also.
For Baylee's 9th Birthday we decided to do a swim party at the Holiday Inn and since her and McKenzie's Birthday are so close together Tiffany and I decided to combine them so each got to invite 3 friends to come. They had so much fun. I just love that they are so close. They are best friends and are always wanting to play together. I really can't believe that she is 9 already. How time flies! She is the best daughter. She helps out so much and is so good to her younger brothers. Well most of the time anyways:) Her and I went to St. George for her Bday also and had so much fun. She is so fun to be around I wish we could get away more often.!
Baylee invited Ella and Krysha. They are so funny to watch. The way they talk and are always giggling it is so funny.
Tiffany has a friend that made this cake for the. It turned out so cute and Baylee and McKenzie loved it!
So Jake has been in a few Demolition Derby's and my kids love to go watch them even if Jake isn't in them. Well Brady has a trike , a four wheeler and a lighting McQueen car that he rides on in the house. So Trey and Brady will each get on one and run into each other on them for their own little demolition derby it is so funny. Both of them think that they will be in one when they get older. Brady has gotten in to watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and when he wakes up now he immediately asks to watch Ga Mouse cubhouse it is so cute and then he dances to the Hot Dog Hot Dog Hot Diggity Dog song at the end it is so cute!!
So Brady is just over 2 now and I absolutely love this age when they go from saying one or two words at a time into talking in sentences which most of them don't make sense but it is still so cute! He is just such a funny kid He has to do everything ME DO IT he always says. We were at a friends house the other day and her little boy was jumping off the top bunk of his bed onto a pile of clothes and Brady thought that looked fun so of course ME DO IT he says and gets on the bottom bunk and jumps up and down for a minute and then jumps off and thinks that he is so cool and big so he does it over and over now I can't get him to quite jumping off of things my bed the couch and even Grandma and Grandpas stairs which he jumped off the 3rd one up the other day he is my little dare devil. Not scared of anything except monsters and Dad's Harley!! Some of my favorite things he says right now is Old lady and you just have to hear him say it to know why it is so cute! Monster in there is also so cute which is what he says everytime you ask him to go put something away in one of the rooms. I think he has it figured out how not to have to put things away. That is just my funny little boy!
My Family and I recently took a trip to Snowflake AZ. That is where I grew up and my brother and sisters and I hadn't been there together for about 8 years so we all packed up our kids and went over Labor day Weekend. We had so much fun with all of our family that lives there. We went to visit our Granny and Papa we hadn't seen them for some time. That Monday was their 65th wedding anniversary WOW!! What an accomplishment:) Here are some pictures of them with the grand kids.
Papa and Brady. He was trying to get Brady to say John Deere but Brady just kept saying tractor and looking at him like he was crazy because he knew what he was holding was a tractor!! It was so cute.
Here is Me, Tiffany, Candon, Tammy, and Granny and Papa.
So this last weekend Jake and I had the most amazing opportunity to get sealed in the St. George Temple to our 3 wonderful children. It was the most amazing experience that I have ever had. I don't think that I could put into words the way I felt. We were so lucky to have so much family and friends come and support us. Thank you!!
In the lower family picture is all of Jake's family that came to go through with us and in the upper family picture is Amanda's family that came to go through with us. We didn't get any pictures of our friends that came. Dang!!
Wow time flies Baylee is in 3rd grade I can't believe that. She was so excited for school to start so was I!! Poor Brady will miss her during the day though and so will I!
She is so gorgeous! She had her clothes all laid out the night before all ready to go for in the morning. As Jake was getting ready she came in our room and Jake asked if she slept good and she says "yes but I kept waking up thinking it was morning and it wasn't". I think that she was a little excited to go.
I have to say I love the outfit she choose to wear!
Got the bag and all ready to go!
She was so excited to have Mrs. Glover ( we are so used to calling her Miss Lindsey) for her teacher. She was her Pre School teacher and now she gets her for 3rd grade we couldn't be happier!
This trip to the lake we decided to take the kids to find some cliffs to jump off. Once we swam over to some Big Rocks not actually big enough to call them cliffs, and climbed up the kids were all peeking over the side and having second thoughts but as soon as I jumped off they all figured that if I could do it then so could they and they all have fun doing it after that.
Baylee had a blast she surprised me at how high she jumped off. If you know Baylee you'll know why she is a pretty cautious girl doesn't take many risks. She surprised me though. Way to go Baylee!

She didn't want to stop.
McKenzie and Trey had lots of fun to. All their arms had to be getting tired from climbing back up on the rocks to jump off.
McKenzie going in to the water. Jake was playing photographer and wanted to get pictures of them jumping. Job well done!
Trey had so much fun doing it he was so mad when it was time to leave.
Isn't she so cute in her life jacket?
McKenzie said it was even funner than riding horses. Yeah right but she did have fun!
It is so nice to live so close to such a great place to take the kids to have some nice family fun. My kids absolutely love the lake it took some good talking to get Jake to go the first time. He hates getting ready that first time to go. You have to get the boat all ready and make sure it runs ok and Jake hates all that just like most men. But once we get there he is good to go. The kids love riding in the boat and even more playing in the sand on the beach.
My niece McKenzie loves to go but her parents don't so we take her with us and my kids couldn't be happier.
Baylee used to cry every time we went in the boat she hated it now she loves it and has so much fun.
Brady is always wanting to go faster!
This is how Trey rides in the boat. He lays on the ground what a funny kid!!
Can't go to the lake with out getting dirt everywhere.
Brady having a little snack.
Aren't they just two peas in a pod? Making grumpy faces!
Jake and I have been married almost 9 years!! Wow is that all!! We have three of the most amazing children!! Baylee is 8 she just got baptized and is the best big sister to her little brothers when she isn't teasing them! She loves to carry Brady around although I don't know how much longer she will be able to! He is going to out weight her soon. Trey is four and just started preschool this year. He is such a crack up just listening to him giggle is the best! He thinks he is the strongest boy in the world just ask him. Then there is Brady, his smile can light up a whole room!! He has the best personality!! I could watch and laugh at him all day! He can do anything wrong and all he has to do is smile and I forget all about it!! So that is our little family what can I say they are the best!!!
