This is my first choice of best family picture because I love the background with the wagon. The only thing that I am not too crazy about is Kenzie's face in this picture. But I must say we will always remember her at that age being such a diva. This is my moms favorite family pic because we are all smiling. I like it too, it's so hard to choose. I just love my gals..can't get enough of them! My beautiful little sis. She is so amazing and I look up to her so much. She has so much strength and can get through anything that life throws at her. Robby & Alyssa (sorry Joey you didn't get in the picture) (Like mother like daughter)I love that Kaylee and I have the exact same hair cut right now..

My mom just emailed me this and I watched and loved it. This made me so excited for General Conference which is coming up. There is nothing sweeter than listening to what our leaders of the church have to say. This little bit brightened up my day and hopefully it will brighten yours...

One of the main reasons why we came out to Utah was so that I could go to my friends wedding. Her name is Lindsay and if you don't know her she is a hard person to describe because she has so many great qualities about her. We first met in high school we had mutual friends and we just connected. We were roommates @ SUU for a semester and then I decided to ditch college life and get married. I feel so old thinking that I have been married for 6 years. Anyways, it was such a pleasure to see her on her wedding day. Her dinner was beautiful and the words that were said from her family and friends were priceless. It was the perfect night for the perfect bride & groom. Seeing them reminded Skyler and I of when we were first married. I love ya Linds, thanks for always being such a great friend. Have fun on that Honeymoon.... This is one of her bridals..i took it from her blog (hope you don't mind, it's too precious)

This was the first time that Skyler has ever wore cowboy boots..i think he looked pretty good! Tate & Mckenzie Kaylee & Ellie When we were in Utah we had the chance to go horseback riding with our friends Marc & Casey. His parents have a ranch out in Spanish Fork. We had so much fun we can't stop talking about it. We aren't as outdoorsie as we would like to be, so this was such a fun experience. I can't even remember the last time I rode a horse. I was so nervous so they gave me the slow blind horse that wouldn't take off if his life depended on it. Skyler on the other hand was on the nervous horse. He had a little scare, but it turned out to be alright. I must say it was very relaxing and peaceful to be out in the country on a horse. The morning after I did feel like I had given birth again...that was my only complaint! The girls had a blast and they love the outdoors!

Skyler was able to spend time with Brock a high school buddy! Mckenzie actually liked Cosmo this year, last year she was afraid of him.

For Mckenzie's Birthday party we decided to have a "Fancy Nancy" Birthday party. If anyone has not read these books, I highly recommend them. They are so fabulous. We had a fun day with lots of little "fancy nancies" that came. My favorite part was the cake. My friend Yanni made it, and it was a hit. Thanks so much Yanni for helping me put this together. Also thanks to Skyler who did the dinner part of the party. We had a great day and now we are off to Utah..to see all of our family and friends there. Happy Birthday Mckenzie we love you so much and we are so happy that you are in our family!

So I was on the phone with my mom last night and I was asking her if she knew the reason why we celebrated Labor Day. Obviously we know it's supposed to be a break for everyone to not work, but she said the real meaning should be to celebrate all of the mothers who have gone through LABOR in pregnancy. I think that is a great idea. From now on I will always think about all of the ladies who have had to go through torturous hours and hours of pain, in order to bring our little ones into this world. Thanks mom for giving me a whole new outlook on Labor Day. Lets be honest here..labor sucks, and men will never understand what we go though..I don't care who you are!
