Once again I have no pictures of the fun things we did because my camera stinks. Kalan even took it on there all nighter at Best Buy and was going to buy me a new camera because he couldn't get it to work at all. Anyway after all the fustrations he didn't buy me a new one. I am very sad cause he didn't get my computer either. Is it really worth it to stay all night in the cold if you are twenty people back and are not going to get what you went for??? Anyway I got alittle ahead of myself. Korbi and Kalan were here all week for thanksgiving. We had big plans for the week including going to TWILIGHT again but Stephen seemed to ruin those plans every night. So once again sad to say we did not go. Korbi and I did alot together. We went shopping and spent 20 minutes at the D.I. looking at six pairs of shorts with Branson so he could decide what ones would fit him. Oh my little shopper what am I going to do with him???? For Thanksgiving day we went out to Widmier's and had a very nice dinner with just us and Collin's parents and then we came in to Grandma's just in time to have dessert and go through the paper to plan out our shopping day on BLACK FRIDAY!!! Needless to say we finally decided that Walmart had the best deals so the girls went to wally world and the boys went to twin to get computers. I have to say I think the girls had better luck than the boys did and we didn't get up until 3:45 a.m. and we even got hot donuts and got to wait inside the store!!!! SORRY GUYS!! Thats what ya get for not taking us to TWILIGHT!!! Just kidding. ANyways after an eventful shopping experience we got home at 8:30 and then took Grandpa Beck to the Albion College to take a stroll down memory lane. I have to say its almost as scary during the day as it is at night with out the people walking around trying to scare you. I think Grandpa really enjoyed himself so I am glad we all braved the wind and went with him. Now on Saturday Kalan decided to rearrange the upstairs and my mom's room so we spent all day destroying the house and then trying to put it all back together again and I have to say Kalan did a great job decorating the upstairs!! Thanks BUBBA!! But I do have to wonder were am I going to put all my stuff now???? One room is hard to keep five peoples stuff in especially a pack rat like Branson!!! Sorry sweety I really do love you just not all your stuff!!!
Collin has been putting in a lot of hours on our house and dad and Stephen went down and helped him on saturday. THey finally got all of the ceiling done. I think that they are pretty upset with me and the ideas I did in the bedroom but I am hoping all their hard work will pay off in the end!!! THANKS HONEY I LOVE YOU TONS!!! You have worked so hard and I want to let you know how much I love you!!! We will make it through all this and have a wonder house to call our own!!! SOMEDAY!!!!
I forgot to mention that Jake decided to join us on Friday and we got to spend the weekend with her also. Sorry Jake my mind is going faster than my poor fingers can type and it was such a whirlwind of a week!!! Thanks pregnant lady for tackling that TV assignment!!! WE love it!!!
So after all that we are finally settling down and trying to get caught up with our normal life!!! Hahah is there any such thing!!!!
THANKS KALAN, KORBI, and JAKE for a great memorable week!! I love you all tons and miss you so much when you leave.

Best Weekend Ever!!!

I just got back from the funnest thing I have done in a long time. Some people like my brother Kalan and my husband think I have really lost it but I have to say that I am not the only one. I was with 225 other people. I went to a TWILIGHT party in Pocatello. We got Twilight T- shirts, bags and even got bite tatoos. We got to ride in a limo to the theatre and then get out on the red carpet. The girl that put on the party was amazing. She opened up her house to all these crazy Twilight fans and put so much work into making sure we were having a great time. I have to say I loved the movie and can't wait until I can go back to see it. So please hurry and get here Korbi so we can go together!!! I think this is seriously gonna take over my life for quite awhile. I don't have any pictures because my camera sucks so Jake, Shannon, and Shantala will be posting all the pictures on their blogs!!! But it was so worth going and I can't wait for the next party!!!

My bathtub!!! I am so excited for my own bathtub, But I think we are going to have to build a little step to get into it. It's a lot deeper than I thought it would be. OOPS!!! Oh well Collin is a pretty handy guy he will figure something out!!!
WAHOO the insulation is complete!!! I can't believe it is all finally coming together. I know I know I have a long way to go but this is an accomplishment I think!!! It's really starting to take shape!!! I can't wait for dry wall to be put up!! Then that's when all the fun starts!!!

Just a picture of my front door!!! MY CUTE LITTLE HOUSE!!!

Saturday Fun!!

Yes I am a little behind but here ya are. A couple of saturdays we decided to see how many of us would fit in the tractor with dad. It's a good thing these newer tractors have a kids seat and a place behind the drivers seat to stand or we wouldn't have all fit. The boys loved it they road with Collin for most of the time. Of Broxton and I got out after a couple of rounds. Buddy of course got in on all the action. He followed the tractor back and forth all day long. It was so good to do something on the farm and something different than our usual stuff. What a nice family activity!!!

Who is Who???

Okay so the first picture should be really easy sine it has the date on it but can you guess who the other two are??? I think that I need to find more pictures that are more the same age so you can really see how similar they all are. I thought this was fun to go through all there pictures. I was even having a hard time with some of them and I am glad I started separating them a long time ago!!!!

Ever since I posted that Broxton was 8 months I have been wondering where my baby has gone. Yesterday in church reminded me how much he has changed in just a few weeks. We can no longer sit in sacrament meeting. You can not leave him in a room that has stairs or other breakable things in it. I have to be more creative about feeding him cause he doesn't want baby food. As you can tell I am really sad that my baby is gone and this very mobile toddler has replaced him. Grandma I have to tell you that he not only cries with you he also cries here at home even when I am holding him. Yes everyone thinks he is spoiled but with so many people in one house I really had no choice but to pick him up so everyone wouldn't complain every time he let out a scream. You can only do so much in your environment. I love watching him grow and learn new things and I love how Bridger and Branson interact with him. Everyday holds great memories and I need to take the time to enjoy them!!!

Wow 8 months already!!!

Wow I can't believe my little baby is already 8 months old. It just seems like we were heading to the hospital in a snow storm but here it is almost a year later. Some of the things he is doing are:
crawling everywhere
saying mom mom mom!!!
eating anything that anyone will give him including Dr. Pepper (umm I wonder who did that)
He has two teeth on the bottom and I am pretty sure the top ones are really close
He has had 2 ear infections and I believe we are working on another one right at the moment
He has fallen down the upstair stairs
tries to stand holding the banister and has fallen and hit his head several times including splitting his tongue.
He fell down the downstairs stairs in his walker but didn't get any broken bones just a scratch on his eye.
He loves to stand up holding on to anything that won't move
He loves the dog
He screams when his mom walks away from him
He drove a beet truck!!!!
He loves his two older brothers and they can make him laugh at anything!!!
NO he does not sleep throught the night
he hates the car seat but loves to drive
he still has big blue eyes!!!
Broxton I love you tons and I am so blessed to have you in our family. I am looking forward to seeing more of your personality come out and I know your brothers can not wait for the day you can play with them.

Albion College

One of the fun things we got to do when my family was here was to go to the Albion College haunted house. Kalan, Kortni, Jake, Aunt Diane, Me, Chad and Stephen all went saturday night after dinner. Poor Korbi thought it would be too scary for her so she stayed with all the kids. We really missed her though!!!! The first two buildings were mainly just walk through and check them out and watch Kortni do a performance on the stage and be scared by a monster walking right up to her!!! Pretty scary when there is no lights except for the light on the video camera. Then the third building we had to stand in line for awhile for and so Jake had to make a potty run so her and I went over to the bathrooms and of course Kalan and Stephen could not resist the temptation to scare us which they did a pretty good job of and had a crowd of people roaring with laughter!!! When we finally entered the real haunted house we were all pretty scared. We made Kalan go first and kept getting scared from him so some how Jake and Kortni ended up first and had everyone laughing at all the screaming. One ghost or whatever she was had them cowering on the stairs and would not let them pass. There were quite a few moments like this for all of us girls and some of them came from the guys who were suppose to be with us. Stephen even got in a good scare for Kalan. I have to say it was pretty fun and scary and I'm glad I finally got someone to take me there since I have wanted to go for awhile. They did a really good job at everything. It was good to get out and just be us. You need a good laugh and scream once in awhile to stay sane!!! Thank you for all that KALAN!!! (and everyone else that was with me!)


Here are my little trick or treater's!!! Don't they make the cutest ninja's and puppy dog ever!! This is right before the trunk or treat. They had a lot of fun getting candy. Broxton missed most of it cause he fell asleep. On Friday we got them all dressed up again to go with their cousins who came down for Bridger's baptism. Korbi went with us to a couple of the neighbor houses and then we met Kortni in town and did a few more houses and then we met up with Jake and grandma mimi's house where we all just collapsed. My kids have never really done the door to door thing so we tried to go into town but we were kindof late so we missed alot of people. But I think they had fun anyway. And the adults got plenty of candy oh oops I mean the kids got alot of candy!!!!
As usual it was a lot of fun to have my family here. We didn't get to do much together because time seems to fly when everyone is here but it was good to see all the kids playing and having fun. Thank you to all of you for making the sacrifice to be here for Bridger's special day!!! I know it meant alot to him.
