November Wrap Up

ok since I was an awful blogger in November, I’m gonna put all these pictures together on one post.

junior museum

one day, just me and the boys headed to the junior museum. they boys loved it because they knew where all the animals were and what was coming up next. and they are big enough to walk most of the way too! conner loved the wolf and called all of the animals after it a wolf. tanner like the bob cat. this was the first time we really have gotten to see it up close.  what an awesome day

 soccer 2010

we finished up soccer and we only won one game, but the kids had fun! hopefully next year tanner will actually kick the ball instead of just running around wherever the crowd is. conner even got to get out there a few times.

thanksgiving lunch   

We got to have Thanksgiving lunch with Tanner at school. Tanner took pictures with 2 of his “girlfriends” Gabrie and Kallan.


Fair time!!! We finally made it to the fair. Tanner got to ride lots of rides and Conner was getting very upset because he couldn’t ride, so we rode the fairest (Ferris) wheel (derek was scared to death) and then we found some rides for conner! we had a blast!

5 fat turkeys

Preschool had their first performance as “5 fat turkeys” at the heritage day program. They were precious! (i’ll try to upload the video)

heritage day

After the program we went out for the booths. The boys had fun painting t-pees, shooting the bow, milking cows, making headbands, making butter, and eating lots of good stuff.

What a busy month, and that was just part of November. I’m scared at how busy December is going to be.

Tanner dressed up as Captain America at school and Nate was Wolverine. They got to be in the costume parade. After the parade was an assembly for Red Ribbon Week.  Mr. Day, the principal, dressed up and did a rap song. After all that they got to play for a little while before their party. They even let Conner participate in the party!

Tanner’s Super Hero Party

 tanner b-day1 tanner b-day party3tanner b-day2

Tanner had a superhero party this year. Some of the kids dressed up and some made capes and masks while at the party. We had “fantastic fish and fries” and “Punch” for our food. The kids jumped in the bouncer and played with the bay blades (i think that’s what they are called). Tanner loved all of his presents and has played with them all for a week! Thank you everyone for making Tanner’s 5th birthday day Super!

Tanner’s BirthDay!

oct 116 oct 122oct 128oct 125   oct 133 oct 134 oct 135

Tanner’s actual birthday was Thursday Oct. 21st.

We started the day off with pan”cakes”. Our birthday tradition.

Then Tanner had a little party at school with his class.

Then Mommy and Daddy took him to eat at the Choo-Choo restaurant.

And we ended the day up with a soccer game!

What a busy 5 year old we have on our hands!

goat day

we had a great time at goat day this year. the boys got to pet the goats, of course, they milked a cow, jumped and slid on the bouncers and rode on the train. we also went over to the pioneer settlement, my favorite part. they made “twirly birds”, watched the tractor parade, and watched the cannon fire. goat day was fun, as always!

our first soccer game

soccer 1

We played our first soccer game last thursday. Jeff was out of town so we had Coach Coxwell coaching the Orange Crush (didn’t have our jerseys yet). Needless to say we lost. We only got close to our goal one time. And I hate to say it, but Matt was the coach of the other team. Hopefully we will get better, we can’t get much worse!

Tanner had fun, but was tired afterward. I wish I could say that he was laying on the ground because he had been running so hard and fell down, but that wasn’t the case. He was just laying down while the game was going on for a little rest. Oh, well, I doubt he will be a professional soccer player when he grows up.

Do you know your colors?

color day

The kids in pre-k do.  They had color day about 2 weeks ago to help them learn them. The kids from Hosford came over on the bus to Bristol pre-k, so we met them there. They made fruit loop necklaces, had snow cones, blew bubbles, played in colored foam,  and played games with colored balls and blocks.

But for some reason Tanner, Nate, & Conner didn’t hardly do anything but ride tricycles. I think they liked it because it was on a “race car track”.

We saw a few of our friends from church there too. Chelsea is in the middle on the bottom row. Ashton is in the top right corner. And i really don’t know who the little girl on the right is, she just kept asking me to take her picture and posing for me, ain’t she cute!

They all seemed to have a good time and they know all the colors of the rainbow!

A little behind…

family reading night

on blogging.

Tuesday before last was family reading night at school along with the book fair. The kids were asked to dress up as superheros. We bought some books and had some popcorn and headed Home for our own family reading night!

Happy Birthday Tanner!


I can’t believe I am the mother of a 5 year old.

Tanner is an amazing kid. He is very laid back, he just goes with the flow (like his mommy). He loves music and sings all the time (like his daddy). He is smart and funny and pretty good (most of the time). He is a great big brother. He really loves his best friend, Nate-Nate.

I can’t wait to see what God has in store for Tanner!

Happy Birthday Tanner D.

I Love You! I Love You! I Love You!DSCN0660oct 059oct 080oct 116
