I am back!!!

So after almost a 7 month hiatus, I am back to the world of blogging.  This is mostly in part due to the fact that I have reconnected with some very good friends because of blogs.  So I am going to do a little tribute to some of them.  I had so much fun going through pictures and believe it or not, these photos were some of the safest in the bunch to put out there for everyone to see.  Boy I sure was in my own little social bubble, and I loved every minute of it.  You guys are the best.  I love you all.

Katie, you are the star of the show.  I definantly had the most embarrassing pictures with you.  Wow we did some interesting things.

How cute are those sleeves?

Navy, pink, navy, is navy and pink also.  I think that we went to the same hairdresser. 

You can see where my kids got their love for dressing up.

How about my shorts?  Obviously I had no concern about the length.  I think my pockets even hung out of this pair.  Erin, love the sweater.  We all had some version of it.

Could junior high have been any more fun?

No question here whether or not denim was in style.  Do you guys remember this?  St. George spring break.

Craig we love and miss you. We hope that you are enjoying our blog. Alot of the reason I do this is for you. I want you to be able to see pictures along with what we are doing. I hope that it has been a great week.

It's all about dressing up at our house

Labor Day

We spent Labor Day at Bill Lyons parents house. We had a great time swimming, playing volleyball, and eating. The kids played hard for hours, they had a great time. Cooper is the totally awesome looking kid with the goggles on the left (do you think that it is time for a haircut?).

Happy Birthday Daddy - August 25, 2007

Well Mike is now 35 and I can't believe it. Hunter and Coop were so excited about getting him presents that I decided we would go all out. So where do we go, Walmart. A one stop shop is what I was thinking, and cheap. After about an hour and a half Cooper has picked out a toy air gun that he just knows Mike has been wanting (not himself ), but I am grateful that it wasn't the 3 ft. tall stuffed spiderman that he was drooling over, and Hunter picks out some car washing tools. They also get tinker bell party hats (notice the picture), and spiderman napkins. They went right home and wrapped the presents and hid them under my bed. They could hardly wait for Mike to open them.

Mike spent his birthday weekend (it didn't just last one day) golfing, having friends over, sleeping in (which was probably his favorite part), and last but definantly not least going to stake conference which didn't end up being too bad seeing how everyone kept texting him conveniently right during the meeting. We love you Mike!!

Starting School

Kindergarton. I can't believe my little girl is starting school. Hunter was so excited and could not wait. She was actually disappointed that I was driving her to school on the first day because she was ready to ride the bus. After the first day I asked how she liked school and she said "we sure did a lot of sitting, I thought that it was going to be more like gymnastics." I didn't break it to her that she has about 15 more years of this.Cooper was just as excited about preschool, but that wore off after about 2 days, then he was ready to stay home with his mommy because he didn't care for circle time which lasts all of about 3 minutes. It was taking away from other fun things that he felt like he should be doing. Notice the ninja turtle tee shirt and backpack, he is obsessed. He always tells me that he wants to go live in the sewer with the turtles.
Emerson at 4 1/2 months. She is slowly coming around. We love her to death and Cooper is always saying, "she is so cute I can't stand it". Her smile is just contagious.
