"12.25: A Merry Musical Comedy"



This Christmas show was our most successful show yet!  It was such a great show.  I can't believe another year has gone by.  Why does time have to go by so fast?!?  Now we are on to Bandito in February! 

Tanner was Santa's helper before and after the show.  He did great handing out candy canes!  He will be on stage in no time!  

Tanner, Bryson, Carter
Bryson and Carter played the part's of TJ's son's in this year's show.  They both did such a great job!  Carter has started counting how many show's he's been in.  He counts silly things like church or school programs.  He's so big, and so proud that he got to be in the show this year. 

Our wonderful cast!  Megan, Whit, TJ, Shar, JB, and the boys!  What an amazing cast we had this year!  All of them are such great people, and are so easy to work with! 

Santa and Santa's little helpers. 

TJ does an amazing job writing, directing, acting, building, and the list goes on and on.  He truly is so amazing at what he does.  He has been given such an amazing gift, and I'm glad he's sharing it with the wonderful people that come to the shows!

New Family Photos



It's so crazy hard trying to get four boys to smile for the camera!  I think we got a few good pictures though!  I love my family so much.  I'm so grateful I have my TJ who loves his boys more than anything in the world.  I'm the lucky one though, I get to be their Mom!  :)







I love KJ in this last picture, it's just so him.  :)

Granma Kathy



You know how some people in your life have shaped you into who you are today?  Well this wonderful little lady is one of those people for me.  And when I say "little", I mean really little.  I was approximately one foot taller than my Granma Kathy, maybe an inch or so more.  People would look at us, and just laugh.  I'm extra glad I didn't get her height, but I would take her awesomeness any day.  

She is one of the most wonderful people I know.  We had so many fun times together.  I would spend weeks at a time at her house in Preston.  She spoiled me rotten.  Sometimes when I start to think about those times together, my heart aches so badly.  I miss her so much!  

I'm sure you have noticed that I spelled Grandma wrong.  Well let me tell you why.  When I was a little girl, I wrote a cute little card to my Grandma, but I spelled it just a little bit wrong.  After that, my cute little Granma wrote it that way for the rest of her life.  I loved reading her cards and seeing that at the end of them.  I would read it and then ask her "Grandma, you know why it's spelled like this right?"  And she would reply with "yes Erin, I do."  And then she would laugh her amazing infectious laugh!  I just love her!

Granma and KJ share a birthday.  When he was born, she said that he was the best birthday present she has ever gotten.  This is her with her birthday buddy.


 
I love you Granma!  I hope I can make you proud, and carry on your wonderful legacy of love and kindness.  I miss you! 

P.S.  Is there potato salad, shrimp dip, peaches, croquet, and Rummikub in heaven.  If not, you need to work on that!  :)

Apple Picking



Our neighbors behind us have an awesome apple tree in their backyard, that is also halfway in our backyard.  The apples are so amazingly delicious, and also fun to pick!  We had so many apples!!!  After we were done gathering our apples, we made apple pie.  Yum!  






Wow I have some handsome boys!  :)

BYU Football



We took Carter and Tanner to a few BYU Football games this past season.  They loved it!  All we heard the whole time was "where is JD mom?"  Such cute boys.  They sure do love JD.  :)




We went out to dinner after, and the boys inhaled this huge piece of chocolate cake.  
No one else got a bite.  They were pretty proud!
We are so excited for the next season of football!

KJ turns 1!



My baby boy turned one on October 15th, 2011.  He is getting so big, and it makes me so sad!  KJ had 2 parties, one with the Davis family and one with the Cartwright family.  He wasn't too sure about the cake, and didn't want to be dirty for very long.  He sure is a fun boy! 






I love you KJ.

#2 Turns 6!!!



Wow!  Is this really happening!?!?  How did my cute little Tanner face get so old?  We are so lucky that Tanner is a part of our family.  He's loving, kind, funny, and has such a tender heart.  We had some awesome parties for Tanner!  Here are a few pics from both of his family parties...





He got spoiled rotten by both sides of the family!  

We had a dress up friend party for Tanner too!  We had so much fun!  We had pumpkin painting, a pinata, bobbing for apples, yummy pumpkin cupcakes, and some awesome gifts from his friends!  


Happy Birthday to my beautiful Tanner Goose!  
We love you so much!

Disneyland!



In October, we went on an awesome trip to Disneyland!  Mom Davis, Tyli, and Kenzie came along for the party too!  We had so much fun.  I think Goofy's Kitchen was the highlight of the trip.  The kids LOVED it!  The food was amazing too!  What a great way to start a trip!  

It was great not having to worry about KJ.  We left him home with his best friend Bre.  We also got to go to Sea World, and Mickey's Halloween Party, which was awesome!  Here are a few of my favorite pictures from our trip....





 Birthday cupcakes for the birthday buddies.

 Wow, Tanner's knee is skinned up way bad!





The boys are already asking when we can go back.  
What a great trip!

Him's



KJ, or as Tanner would call him, Him's, is about the cutest thing in this world!  I haven't written about my sweet boy for a long time, and I need to write about his cute personality. 

He says Ma Ma, and Ba ba. 

He loves to eat!  Mostly treats, and bottles.  He loves peas, beans, and applesauce.  He won't eat very much baby food though.  He prefers to eat whatever Mom or Dad is eating.  

He hates binkis.  I guess that's good later on in life, but right now I really wish he would take one to go to sleep.  

He loves Tanner!  Tanner plays with him all the time.  He loves to throw a ball back and forth with him.  KJ has a great arm!  

He loves his blanket, and that is usually what calms him down when he goes to bed.  

He is in love with his Daddy!  He dives for him anytime I am holding him.  He will crawl into his office and beg to be held.  It's pretty darn cute.  

He is also in love with his Papa Perry.  He doesn't even see him that much, and when he does see him, he prefers him over me!  

He broke his cute little arm when he was 8 months old.  It was cute/sad to watch him try to crawl.  

He does this silly little growl thing.  I can't really describe it, but it is super funny.  He now does it anytime you do it to him. 

He has a cute little dimple on one of his cheeks.  

He has the most beautiful blue eyes I have ever seen!  See for yourself....

See, I told you so.  

I love you KJ!  You are my sweetest cutest, just like I tell you everyday.
 I just have one request, stop growing up!!!
