Closing Night...

Words can't describe how much TJ and I love the wonderful people in the cast this year.  They are such great examples to everyone around them, especially my boys.  It was so fun to spend time with Shar, Whit, and Derek!  We hope they will come back next year!  :)

TJ did an amazing job creating a fun family experience to everyone who walked through the theater doors.  Everywhere I turn there is someone new telling me how talented he is, and it's true.  If fact here are some things that people are saying about us this year...

Dear TJ,

My Dad and sisters and I went to your December 23rd performance and I just have to tell you again how much I absolutely LOVED it!!!  We actually shook your hands afterward.  My youngest sister is the one who said you guys rank right under Wicked for her favorite musical. 

We all just loved your show! The story was cute, the sets were great, the acting was so fun, and the songs were phenomenal.  I'm sad that I have not discovered you guys before now.  I've lived here 9 years and I've been missing out.  

Hi TJ;
Thanks for working us in for yesterday’s performance; it was great; you are so clever and talented; did you hear us cackling from the back; great theatre.

"The play was excellent.  My family and I had a great time."

TJ might get upset with me for doing that, but it's crazy how much people love him!  His Inbox is flooded with so many wonderful compliments, but yet he remains so humble and kind to those around him. 

I hope the cast will forgive me for posting this pic....

My beautiful boys got to come to the final show on the 23rd.  We had a fun time watching Daddy from the back.  I'm such a lucky girl to be married to my best friend.  My stomach does flip flops when I watch him perform.  He has such an amazing spirit, and I know that's why people can't get enough of him.  I'm thankful for the opportunity to spread Christmas joy to those who were in our audiences.

Thank you to our families for your support through this CRAZY time.  We love you!  And in the words of Juanito Bandito, "I'll be coming back"....

Come see us in February.  Only 3 performances here in Logan!

Pure Joy

I can't even begin to describe how much I love this beautiful face. He is sweet, loving, full of joy, has a wonderful spirit, and is one of my best friends. There are numerous times throughout the day that I am filled with Pure Joy just because I am his mother.

There are also times that I feel like I can't live up to the huge task of being a mother. I worry constantly about my three boys. I want them to have confidence, to be kind to others, to have a desire to be good, to be smart, to gain a testimony of the gospel, and so many other things it makes my head start to hurt. I am molding them into the young men that they will become, and I pray that the Lord is proud of how I am raising them. I have been blessed by Him to be able to experience the Pure Joy of motherhood.

Hayden is now 18 months old. Time. Flies. By. If all of my children to come have Hayden's personality, I want 10 more of them! And just maybe could one of them be a girl?

Maybe someday....

We captured some great shots of these beautiful faces! I love these boys. They make my life so complete. We had a wonderful time jumping in the leaves with Daddy. I love this time of year, and the great feeling in the air. Enjoy!

While They Were Gone....

Mom, TJ, and Whitney had the wonderful opportunity of picking Derek up from the Philippines. That left us crazy and wild at home! We moved into the Davis house for 8 days, along with Shar and Andy, and Chelsea. At some points of the day it felt like a complete mad house, but other times it was a complete joy! Meesh came and stayed with us for a few days too. I was so relieved when she walked in the door! She was a huge help!

Here are a few of the fun things we did:

USU volleyball game with Meesh. Big Blue sat by Carter for like 15 minutes, he was in heaven!


Talking on Skype with our family half a world away! It was the cheapest way to talk!
Cinnamon Rolls with Shar! Best. Day. Ever.
Playing with Elliot! I swear they just ran around the house trying to figure out how to make the biggest mess! We were so excited for Uncle Diesel to be home! I am so glad to have my husband back! More on Elder Davis' return to come....

Happy Birthday Tanner!

My Tanner Goose turned 4 on the 10th of October! We had lots of fun parties, cake, and yummy food! Tanner got some way fun presents, that Daddy and Uncle Corey played with more than the kids!
Tanner had his favorite breakfast for his birthday, pancakes with a dunkin' egg on top, just like Papa Perry! He was a happy boy!

Tanner, Cade, and Carter. These 3 boys have such a fun time with each other! Cousins are so fun!

Fun Nerf gun!
Happy Birthday! Mommy and Daddy love you so much!

St. George

Our St. George trip was for one purpose only, to see shows. Everyone but me and the boys went to two shows at the Shakespeare Festival in Cedar City on Thursday. We drove to St. George to watch some volleyball and see some fun friends!

This is Jackie. I love my Jackie! I coached her in club last year, and it was so fun getting to know her. She is the Sophomore coach at Snow Canyon high school, so we got to watch her in action! It was so fun to see you Jackie, and your cute family!

This is my Kiz. She is a Freshman this year at Snow Canyon high school. She plays on the Varsity team, and she is AMAZING! I have know this girl for years! Her mom Cindy was my coach when I was a Junior in college. I love Cindy, she is an incredible woman and I have learned so much from her. She has such an amazing attitude. I just can't say enough about her. Anyway! I used to go watch Kiz play volleyball when she was in 3rd grade. She was so skinny her spandex would sag! I loved this girl like she was mine own, and I still do! Now she is all grown up and hitting girls in the face with the volleyball! No but seriously, she is such a great volleyball player. It was so fun to spend a few hours with Walt & Cindy. Thanks again you guys! Oh and Kiz, TJ says that he is still your boyfriend! :)

My boys were so great during the games. I'm lucky I have amazing kids!

Friday we spent the morning in Cedar City swimming in our pool, and playing at the park. Blake took us to this amazing park! It had some great stuff for kids, and adults!

Tuacahn! We got to see two show at Tuacahn this year. Annie, and Aida. Annie was great for the boys, and way cute. Aida was so amazing! We had a great hotel in St. George, with a pool that was perfect for the boys.
Thanks Mom and Dad for a great trip!

Summer Endings....

Here are a few things I will miss about Pickleville:
(in no particular order)

1-Working in the Box Office. I love answering the phone and getting to know our customers. Here's TJ all dressed up working on the last night of Annie.

2-Hanging out with two of my favorite girls! Meesh became like a sister to me this summer. It was so fun baking cookies every Sunday, staying up late watching "So You Think You Can Dance", shopping, etc. She is amazing, and I miss her so much! And my Kenzie, holy cow! She truly is my sister! We have so much fun together! We are snow shack partners in crime. :)

3-Having relaxing Sunday's in Bear Lake. This one particular Sunday it poured like CRAZY!!! These next three pictures show you just how hard it was raining!

4-Snow Cones! A snow cone a day at Pickleville is not a rare thing. Oh, they are so yummy!
5-Playing at the lake. There were numerous times during the summer that my kids and I would just go down and play at the beach for an hour. They love playing in the sand!

6-Watching TJ transform into Juanito Bandito! He made thousands of people find joy and laughter through his show. What a talented man I married!
7-Playing in the tree house. And playing with Elliot!

8-Our amazing cast! They are so talented, and wonderful to be around! They are such great examples to our kids, and I am grateful for that.
9-Holding Brooklyn & Mckenna all day! It was so fun to have Shar and Andy practically living with us up there. I loved hanging out at nights with Shar, and loving the babies.

10-Playing dress up, and playing back stage! I love when my boys get into their cowboy gear. It's also a great day when Carter puts his Bandito costume on! :)

It's official, we've hung up our wranglers, our boots, and our chaps. We scrubbed, dusted, and washed all day Labor Day. The costumes, makeup, and props are put away. It's official, the "Shut Till June" sign is hung.

See you next summer!
Actually, we will see you at the Christmas Show!
