Busy, Busy

Kennedi has been super busy lately. On top of dance classes three times a week, she has been performing at basketball games, and on Thursday she had her school Christmas Program.

She and Payton performed their ballroom dance on Friday at the basketball game, and I have to say it was the cutest thing! Payton is our neighbor and they are best friends. He is a year older then her, but she is just a little bit taller then him.

The batteries died in my camera before they got to the lift, I was so mad.

Latest Happenings

Kennedi performed her jazz dance at the girls basketball game......

Then she split her chin open on recess. She needed stitches, but luckily they were able to glue it shut instead.

And here is our baby boy walking across the room.........

Thanksgiving Weekend

This year we spent Thanksgiving with Shane's family in Escalante and had so much fun! His brother and sisters and cousins are all around our age so we played lots of games and laughed really hard!

Daxton loved ALL the food, we couldn't shovel it in fast enough. Unlike his sister, who only nibbled on that roll.

Daxton and Krayton took time away from the stairs to play in the dishwasher....they are so cute together.

Bofore coming home on Friday, we stopped at the Shakespear's new cabin that is almost done being built. It was a little chilly in there until the fire got going....

We got home Friday night, and put up our Christmas decorations all day on Saturday. I look forward to doing this all it, Kennedi is always a great help, and this year Dax and the kitties were part of the fun.

Kennedi decorated her own tree in her room

This cat loves to climb in the tree

Saturday night, Shane and I went out with Coby and Jessica to celebrate mine and Jessica's birthdays. We went to dinner in Manti, and then to the movie in Ephraim....NEW MOON of course, it's even better the second time ( I think Shane secretly loved it too, he just won't admit it).

Then on Sunday, I turned the big 29....I'm not thrilled about almost being out of my 20s, but what can you do? I got to speak in church for the 2nd week in a row.....YES, IN A ROW!!!! Last week our family spoke, and this week the Young Women's Presidency had to speak. Just glad they're over with now!

So BIG!!

Look who's so BIG!!!
Dax just turned 10 months and is standing by himself. He was doing it a ton today, and even took a couple steps. Even though Kennedi was walking before she was 10 months, He just doesn't seem old enough to be walking....he is still so little!

Shane suprised me the other night and had his brother Coby come watch the kids and took me on a date. I think this was our first (alone) date we've been on since Dax was born.
We are limited on things to do in our small town, so we went to the movie in Ephraim. Our choices were "The Box" and the "The Vampire Assistant". Even though I'm a huge fan of vampires....that movie looks horrible so we went to "The Box"
Oh my gosh!!! Blah Blah Blah, so boring. One of the worst movies I've ever seen. The ONLY good thing about it was the Trailer for NEW MOON at the beginning.
Speaking of NEW MOON.....I'm so so excited for the midnight showing. My mom and her friend rented out the theater in Moab again this year, so I'm going down there to go with them. It's going to be so fun. They've done AMAZING door prizes and have went all out to make it a fun night. We all got shirts to wear, mine of course is TEAM EDWARD, Kennedi had to have one too, she wanted the team Jacob one (she likes him because he is Shark Boy).......Can't Wait!

Show and Tell

Kennedi finally got to bring her kitties in for show and tell yesterday. She was so excited! It was fun for me to get to see her at school.

Then....lucky us (not), we went to the grocery store and Santa just happened to be there. I tried to talk Kennedi out of standing in the hour line but she insisted (I know, I'm no fun). Dax was mesmerized by him though....
Today I was busy doing some stuff and I walked into the living room to find Kennedi reading her scriptures...with her fake glasses and all. She is so funny!

Trick or Treat

Halloween was fun.....Kennedi was The Little Mermaid and Dax was a pirate (kind of, I made it an hour before we left).

We went to the Halloween Carnival at Kennedi's school on Friday night, and then did lots of Trick or Treating around Gunnison on Saturday night.....Ah, Good Times!

Pumpkin Carving

We look forward to carving our pumpkins every year.
On Monday, we got together with a group of friends and all the kids carved their pumpkins
Kennedi won "Most Outstanding Pumpkin" (She may have had a little help).
Then last night after the Halloween Carnival at Kennedi's school, Shane's family came over for the "pumpkin competition"....oh yes, who can carve the BEST pumpkin.

I thought everyone did a good job, the competition was pretty stiff this year.

Mine left, Shane's right
But, I think I pulled off the win again this year....sorry Shane.

It Has Come......

Yes, that dreaded day has come......we have cats!

Kennedi LOVES animals and she has been begging for a pet pretty much her whole life. For the last couple years, we would just say "when our house is done", well our house is done and we were out of excuses and we need them for mice.

Our neighbors cat had kittens, and these were the ones she picked out and named herself.
Meet Black Jack and Sassy.....

Pumpkin Patch

It's that time of year when everyone visits the good ol' pumpkin patch. We made our visit to the local patch on Sunday with the Cody & Nona Dyreng fam (thought I'd be specific, lots of Dyreng families in Gunnison).

We had fun picking out pumkins of all shapes and sizes.

Payton, Rilee, Talan, Kenna, & Dax
Here's what we ended up with....lots to carve this year.

Then Monday, our house got hit with something yucky. I had the flu, throwing up all day (TMI ??) and then that evening, Kennedi got a fever, and was complaining of ear aches and a soar throat.
She was so sick yesterday, that I took her to the doctor with a 103 temp to find out she has strep throat and both ears are infected....poor thing.
Then this morning, she woke up with a very bloody nose, and IT WOULD NOT STOP!!! She was totally freaked out and crying, and the harder she cried, the more it bled all over my house. I then was starting to panic and had to call Nurse Nona to come over and help get it to stop. FYI....I guess you don't lay down, your supposed to sit up and pinch the nostrils together....who knew??
Anyways, got it to finally stop, then got the blood out of my poor carpet (thank goodness the couches are leather). She is on antibiotics now and is feeling much better. Fingers crossed Dax doesn't catch any of it.
