Angry Birds

It's that time of year again...Soccer season! Koen had his first ever soccer game this past weekend. It was so fun to see him playing. All the boys had us laughing. This age is the best!
Team Name: Angry Birds, they even had a mascot! Payton was in one of her moods where she didn't want to play so no pics of her this time around...

A much needed break...

So we, and by we I mean me and the kids, had the opportunity to head to Canada to see Heather's family and newest edition. We have been just hanging out and relaxing, and me enjoying not having to work! Here's a lot of pics from the hospital that I took with the kids and baby. Ha ha, sorry for the picture overload, but that's what I do...

2 in 1 week! I'm on a roll!

I guess this is what happens when your husband is out of town. So I should be great at blogging this summer! Here's what we did over New Years!

1. We decided to go down the Living Planet Aquarium to their "Noon Years Eve" celebration. The kids had a blast, they got there faces painted, and were even on the radio--B98.7. (if your my friend and reading this you probably didn't hear it, cuz it's a lame station and you were listening to something better!... :) ha ha.) But they thought it was pretty cool! Any who, here's some pics of the day...

Payton wanted to make it look like she was killed by the frog...She's crazy!

The beautiful Jellies!
Ko's favorite is always the sharks.
The newest edition...
I LOVE this pic of the penguins!
and this one too!
Koen was kind of upset after he had his dragon. He said he was sad cuz he wanted a night fury... I told him that next time he needs to be more specific when he says he wants a dragon!
More beautiful fish2. I thinks it's becoming a tradition to have New Years Eve at my house?! We had a blast. Casey and Brock brought up Michael Jackson for the wii, and the kids played it almost all night! Here's a few pics and a video of them... Nevermind on the video, it was taking way to long to load.

3. New Years Day the kids went sledding up at Longfellow's. They had fun, but man it was COLD! I didn't stay out to long, so not may pics. (I'm sure your cheering since this is a really
L O N G post!)

Koen had his first experience with a white wash! ha ha, he was not happy about it!

Worst. Blogger. EVER!

I seriously should be crowned worst blogger ever! I just have not had a lot of time for it lately. I'll try and do better...I said try, no guarantees. :) Here's a little peak at our Christmas season. We went to Clark Planetarium to see a Christmas light show, it was ok. The kids liked it, so that's all matters! Then we headed over to temple square to see the lights. Such a beautiful and peaceful place, even with hundreds of people around. {Look close you can see Janet behind Russ}

Christmas eve at my Grandma Giffords...

My ornaments this year. They looked quite small once I put them on our HUGE tree! I need to get some huge ornaments next year for sure!

Now just a collage of Christmas Morning. Melissa came and stayed with us to see the kids open presents, They loved having her there! I had Shingles and it sucked!!! Russ got me a bow! I was so excited! I had no idea he was getting me one. Sometimes that boy surprises me. {Sorry about the horrible bed head in my pic :)}
