Friend Party

For Connor's Party we rented a jump house and had it set up at the park across the street from us. It was a perfect sunny day. Connor had a blast with all of his kindergarten friends. It was so fun to have both sets of Grandparents their to celebrate his birthday!
Connor we are so thankful to have you in our lives. You are such a special spirit and bring so much to our family. I am blessed everyday to learn from you. Thanks for being you!

More birthday fun

We had a cake that night with Grandma and Grandpa for Connors birthday! We also opened presents. Connor got a Nintendo DS. He was thrilled.
We also opened up Christmas presents from Grandma and Grandpa. Sam got the Girl Gourmet cupcake maker. Sam and Grandma where in heaven making cupcakes all weekend!!


Happy Birthday Connor!! For Connor's birthday we took him to the Aquarium of the Pacific. Grandma and Grandpa Thorpe flew in from SLC to spend the weekend with you. We had so much fun seeing all of the fish.

Beauty Queen!!


The kids love to take a bath in our big master tub.

Sleeping Angle

I have never had any of my kids fall asleep in the high chair! I was shocked when I looked over and found this sleeping angle. When ever Zach sits he always crosses his feet, so cute!


As you can see my turkey turned out PERFECT!!!
My First turkey!

Zach loves to snuggle with his Grandpa!

Dave and Darleen

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had Ty's parents over along with his brother Dave, sister in law Darleen and their daughter Emily. The food was yummy and it was so fun for Ty and I to host our first Thanksgiving. We are so thankful that Dave and Darleen could travel down from Northern California to see us.

Cook out!

The kids both had a friend sleep over on friday night. We had a cookout in our backyard with hotdogs and marshmellows. Zach LOVED the fire. It's a good thing that I could restrain him in his high chair. I think our poor dog ate just as many marshmellows as the kids, thanks to Zach. It is nice that the weather has changed so we can enjoy the backyard, I love the 70 degree weather!

Family pictures

When we were in Utah we had Family pictures done by my cousin Jeni. They turned out so cute. Thanks Jeni. I love the fall leaves in the back ground.
Zach was a busy body during the pictures and definatley gave Jeni a run for her money.

Look at those brown eyes!

What a stinker!

Wearing Daddy's hat for his birthday book.
(Each year I take a picture of the kids with the same item so you can see them grow into the item. Sam has her picture with my wedding vail, Connor with daddy's cowboy boots, and Zach with Daddy's basebal hat. The picture goes into a special book that is displayed the week of their birthday.)

Toothless smile!
