Winter fun at the Cabin

We went up to the cabin last weekend while Tyler's brother, Jared, and his family were in town. It was so fun! The kids got to play, the men got to sleep, and us women did what we always do (Do we ever really get a vacation? :) )
We were sad to see our cousins go back to Wisconsin. Their time here always seems too short! But it sure was fun while it lasted!

The best part is that we didn't even have to walk back up the hill. We just rode behind the 4-wheeler-eliminating the worst part of sledding.
The Fam
Sam and Ella are learning to ski, so they tested their mad skills on the sledding hill. They really are quite good!
Mya's favorite place to be. She was'nt too keen on the sledding, especially since her mom is not a very good driver!
The whole gang(minus Grandma who is taking the picture, and Karli who is in the MTC- We miss you!)Look at those rosy Cheeks!

Pumpkin Patch

We finally made it to the pumpkin patch on Halloween day! We took a wagon ride to the pumpkin patch down at Rowley's in Santaquin.(They have the best apples and Ice Cream!) It was slim pickins' to find the good pumpkins, but we made out alright. And hey, they were free so you can't beat that! Emma is convinced that we are going to make pumpkin pie with our pumpkins since we didn't have time to carve them. Maybe I could tell her we put our pumpkins in a can!

Better late than never...

I realize its mid-October, but you have to post pictures of the first day of school!
Emma was so excited to start preschool again this year, and she absolutely loves it!

Cowgirl up!

For Father's Day, we decided to do a photo shoot of the girls on the horses for Tyler's dad. I thought they turned out pretty well, although it made me wish for some better training in photography. But with subjects as cute as these, who needs training, right? I'm lucky I got them both to smile!

Mary, Mary, quite contrary..... does your garden grow?
We decided this year that we wanted to try our hand at being gardeners. Hopefully it will work out, because I tend to kill things.
We planted cucumbers, peas, beans, onions, peppers, and yes, even tomatoes among other things. But only because I want fresh salsa.
Best case scenario, we will have a great harvest of garden fresh veggies. Worst case scenario, we will still have this beautiful box that Tyler built, which is the prettiest thing we have in our drab, unfinished yard!


Does this scene seem familiar to anyone?

Note to self.....

...... never, never try to cut your own hair again! The result is an uneven, mullet-like, hairdo that wouldn't flatter a gorilla.

P.S. Be grateful that your hair is still long enough to fit in a ponytail. Sort of.

Spring has sprung!

Look carefully at these pictures.

Do you see it?
Yep, its a SUNBURN! (Shame on Mommy for forgetting the sun screen.) But Spring is FINALLY here! We spent our whole day outside today and it was fabulous!

Happy Easter!

Easter was a lot of fun this year! Emma understood the jist way better this year and was way more into it. Mya seemed to enjoy it as well. Even if she didn't understand that the eggs shake because there's good stuff inside, or that the eggs we colored are not actually balls ( thank goodness they are hard boiled, right?) It was fun the watch them have fun.

See all those fun little toys? She didn't care, all she wanted was this tootsie roll!
