SAW IT...................


Seriously, maybe I should be back in highschool with the majority of the girls that were in the theatre, but I cant stop thinking about this movie. Im not too picky when it comes to movies, so maybe thats why I loved it so much, but it was just how I thought it should be! EDWARD was PERFECT! If only he could be real.........anybody need a movie buddy....Ill go again.

We Love Halloween

I am lucky my kids like Halloween as much as I do. They went to the dentist yesterday and I told them if they were good, they could pick a prize at the store. This is what they chose, and really they had a huge choice, all of walmart. Halloween always has some nasty, funny stuff at Halloween time! This one almost made me gag though! Porter thought it was hilarious. He wants to take it to preschool for show and tell. Probably not.

My sister Megan asked if she could have my kids for a couple days for a sleepover, and I was so nice and told her yes....during this time without kids, I really wasnt sure what to do with myself! So my mother in law said to start a project, and I did just that. I started in Marli's room, I bought the paint and really wasnt sure what my plan was at this point. Im still not sure what made me decide to try the stripes. I really like them and so do my kids, but they take A LONG time! Yes, I realize the date on the pictures is wrong. My camera dies so often that I dont care enough to reset the date every sorry.....
Todd also finished the yard while the kids were gone! It is the best thing ever to finally have grass! We had a lot of guys from our ward show up to help and so did some of Todds brothers! Thanks guys.
This is my walmart deal! Im loving it!
Front yard
Back yard
Porter also wanted stripes after I said Marli's walls were striped, I just made his way thicker and only on one wall, instead of two! I loved the turnout! Now I need to find some cute bedding for both of their rooms!
Im so glad for these blogs! My mom and her side of the family pretty much never make it down our way, so we're happy they can see our house and things were doing this way!

HaPpY bIrThDaY tO yOu!!!

Kathryn Phelps Curtis---a very good friend of mine! We have had way to many great memories together! I cant even start!!!!Let me just name somethings that only a few will get! Slick 50, snorting cocaine(not me) getting kicked out of girls camp(was that just me), wart, choking on strawberries, raiding your moms food storage, becky blowing out your match, skinny dipping, and lastly the annoying beeping sound at 6 am!! You are such a good friend!!! Hope you have a great day!We had a little sleepover not too long ago at Katies house, these are some pictures of us before we stuffed our faces with cheese fries!!Many of you already know my friend\cousin, Becky who lives in California, just found out she is expecting twins!!! And probably BOYS!!!! I am so excited for her!

Fun at the Girls home!

We stayed a night up at the "Girls Home" in Mantua. We had a dodge ball tournement, made smores, did the slip n slide, and watched movies till late! It was fun! Thanks Kenny and Mary Ellen for inviting us! Ashton and Dalton hanging out where it was cool, by the big old fan!
This slip n slide was the best thing ever! The kids loved it and so did I! I did my first slide head first and landed in the pile of mud at the end! Chad followed me later on and had some fun in the mud too!
Can you "GUESS THE BISCHOFF?" It will be tricky, they all like to take naps, where ever they are, this person was asleep when I took the picture......Look closely......who is it???Those are some nice abs!!!!!

last month.....

We had a busy month of August.. I finished up the summer classes at the peak, teaching gymnastics(dont laugh) The kids were so fun! I usually get really sick of them after a few months, but I was kinda sad to see them go. I teach six classes, we forget the picture of one class! I really like the Peak. My kids will go to preschool there this fall. I am there only 6 hours a week and I really like it.

These boys were wild. Thats all I can say.

My addiction

I guess it's time I admit to everyone I have a problem. I have a horrible obsession. Today I thought I would just hurry and vaccum my carpet, and not take the extra time to make the lines in the carpet......I couldnt do it. I had to go through the house and make the lines that I love so much....I think it's one of my favorite things. I love it, it looks nice and clean. I wouldnt say Im a "clean freak." But I do like my house to be clutter free and things to have a place.
The problem is, It only last a little while! See the lines are disapearing!!!!
I usally do it at night so it will stay like this for a while. I love to wake up to a clean house and the lines sucked into my carpet. I am a carpet freak.

On Pioneer day I went with two of my neighbors to THE DARK KNIGHT!!! I had been really wanting to see it! I love scary movies, which this one was so creepy! The joker was really creepy and I was loving it! Later that night we had a little barbeque with the Hall's and Peterson's. Our kids love to play together and looking at the picture, I think they had fun.... Kamryn, Porter, Kade, and Marli. Bradlee was running around somewhere

Our yard has just really been a pain in the butt. It has been a lot of work(for Todd) and it's finally about time for grass!! I cant tell you how excited me and my kids will be when that day is here!

The dentist and Cherry Hills...............

Porter loved the Lazy river! He was always about 20 feet behind his cousin's, but he was so cute floating all alone! Some of our group, Bruce and Mia are in Utah for a little while, so we all met at Cherry Hills! It's always fun seeing them and their cute kids!
A really good picture of me and Marli, I had just gotten soaked on the cardiac canyon. That slide is rough on you. I got thrown off my tube and slammed into the walls the whole way down.
More family
Marli at the dentist! This girl's name is Lindsay, and she is from Brigham city! She was so good, Marli wasnt scared one bit, she loved the dentist! Look at the cute pink chair..
Nice clean teeth and a new toothbrush! She was a happy girl!
Porter was brave too! He picked orange flavored flouride and said it was really good! This lady made sure she had her mask on. Good thing.
Porter laying back watching Jungle Book! They played these movies and the screen was in the ceiling, and Porter loved the cool headphones. We loved Dr. Doug and his "helpers!" Marli has to have a root canal...Has anyone else had a kid so young have anything like this done??They told us she will have to have it done at the hospital and will be put under while they work on her tooth....Im not so sure. But the dentist office was so fun and my kids keep asking to go back to the dentist.

Our 4th of July weekend in Bear Lake

We had so much fun this weekend! I love being in Bear Lake Valley for the 4th! I always loved it growing up there! I forgot my camera when we went to the lake and the awesome Paris parade! My kids got a lot of candy, we were suprised! Porter, Todd, Merinn, Austin and Jake rode in the back of Brad's truck to go fishing! Porter was loving it!
Isnt Bo so cute! He has grown up a lot lately! His band "Last Chance Lane Change" played at the park after the fireworks in Montpelier! They are so fun to listen to!
Marli and Bella jumping on Grandma Lanes trampoline before the fireworks off M hill start!
Grandpa Brad! All the grandkids love him to death! He does a lot of fun things with them! Me and Todd always like to sit around and talk with him! He is such a sweet guy!
Porter's first time fishing. He really liked it, he looks a little scared in the pictures, but he was just hugging Todd! By the way we never got anything....bummer.....he was really excited about getting one!
My mom, me and my grandma! I love going to my grandma's! It always feels like home there.
Here she is making popcorn for the firework show, kinda a tradition of hers! It was yummy!!!!
This is my spread eagle and......
This is Brynnes.....tell us who's is better!!!......
Me and Todd! I love the 4th of July, especially when it's on a weekend!
