Sun Valley!



Sun Valley is such a beautiful, magical place. We drove up on Christmas Eve, and then stayed until the 26th. It was a short trip, but very fun. It was fun to see the carolers, even if it was only for a minute!
This is our attempt for a family picture. Tanner hates being in pictures right now, maybe it's because his mom takes a million of them!

Swimming in the huge outdoor hot tub!

You can see behind Carter how there is snow on the edge of the pool. They spent the whole time getting in and out of the pool, so they could put snow in the water and watch it melt. The pool/hot tub was 104 degrees. Way too hot!

Carter and Kenz by the eagle sculpture. They have these awesome sculptures all over Sun Valley.

Wow those are handsome boys.

Another attempt at a family picture. Once again Tanner isn't too excited about it!

Waiting for the carolers to go out.

Shar, Carter, and Whitney. Don't they look great!

Ty and my Hayden in front of the bear sculpture. We had such a great trip, the only downside to it was the driving. We didn't really pick the best days to drive. It snowed on the way there and the way back. It took us almost 7 hours to get there, when it would normally take 4! It was still worth it though!
(This is my last post I swear!)

Christmas Eve Night!



After a long 6 1/2 hour drive to Sun Valley, the party finally started. It's a tradition the we get Eve jammies from TJ's parents.

Here are the boys (minus Elliot who was sleeping) in their cute eves. I love Tanner's smile in this picture.

Here are the cute as heck girls in our cute jammies. Mom always does such a great job!

Isn't Hayden adorable. I don't think anyone understands how much I love this boy! After everyone was all cozy, we played the story-telling game that we always play. I won't describe it because it will take too long! Then we told the boys the story of baby Jesus, and went right to bed so Santa could come! We had such a fun Christmas Eve with both of our families. Thank you to our wonderful parents on both sides who made it great!


Christmas Eve Day!



We had a Christmas Eve party with the Cartwright family, that started out with some pretty cool gingerbread houses! Megan and Drue struggled a bit to get theirs to stay up. Carter and Tanner really liked decorating theirs.


My brother Corey, and his boy Cade.

Hayden just chillin' like usual!

Best cousins!

Best brothers!

Britt, Drue, and Megan

Cooper and Hayden got matching walking toys from Grandma and Grandpa. We had a wonderful dinner, and then opened presents. Thanks Mom and Dad for a fun Christmas. We love you all!

Santa Claus's Party



Our Christmas show has come to an end. I am so excited to have a break, it has been crazy to say the least. TJ did an amazing job writing the show, and performing in it. He was hilarious as Buster the elf. Carter and Tanner loved coming to watch their daddy!


I am going to miss these guys. We really had such an amazing cast, and tech crew. They were so great to work with, and always willing to go the extra mile. Thanks you guys!


Isn't he handsome!


Thanks for a wonderful show you guys! We love you!
(Hopefully we will play more this summer!)

Lights in Ogden



We took the kids to the lights in downtown Ogden. They loved seeing all of the little houses, and listening to the kids, or tids as Carter called them, sing. It was so very cold! Poor Hayden was wrapped in lots of layers!

Cute Daddy
Carter is such a good brother!
This was their favorite one, because Diego was in it.
You are such a trooper Hayden!
Thanks for the fun my boys!

Snow Day!



These pictures are from last week's big snow storm. I just haven't had the time to post them! Carter, Tanner, and Elliot had a blast sledding down Grandma's hill. TJ worked the hardest I think, carrying them back up the hill a million times!

Carter ate a ton of snow!
I love their rosy cheeks when they are all done playing!
Andy and the boys jumping on the tramp!
Chel & Elliot
Tanner, aka Dare Devil. Shar and Andy call Tanner their guinea pig because he will try anything they ask him to!
Elliot loved riding on the back of Carter and Tanner.
Sweet face.
Here is the hard work I was talking about!Grandpa Perry came to shovel our driveway when we got home.
Thanks Papa!

7 Months Old!



My angel turned 7 months old today. I am amazed at how quickly time goes by. Hayden has been such a joy to our family. He has such a wonderful spirit about him. He is always willing to smile, even at strangers. He loves his Daddy, but that's not a surprise, TJ is an amazing Dad. He loves to eat normal food now. He begs for you to share with him at dinner time. He loves his Mommy, and reaches for me all the time. I love that! What a joy he is!

I love you Hayden.
Happy 7th month!
P.S. Our Christmas show opened this past weekend, and it is amazing! Check us out here.

Twilight!!!



Wow, what an amazing movie. I didn't think I was going to like it very much, but I LOVED it. I love that what I saw in my head while I was reading the book, was up on the big screen. We went and bought shirts before just to get in the mood. :)

Kenzie is our prey. I don't know why I decided not to eat her too. Maybe she didn't smell good to me! She did to Shar, she looks scary! He he!
Hmmmm.

Cute girls! I love you guys!

Carrie Underwood Concert!



Holy Cow! Carrie Underwood was AMAZING! Really though, she was so impressive. Megan and I had so much fun dancing, singing, and screaming of course! Thanks for coming with me Meg. What a blast!
