Halloween 2017

                                                    For Halloween this year 
-Tucker was a Spider
-Raegan was a Butterfly
-Madalynn is a Flower

Corn Maze

 When you live in a farming community you don't have to go far to find a corn maze. About a half an hour out of vernal there is a town called Lapoint they do a corn maze every year.  this was mine Raegan and Madalynn's first time Tucker had went the year before with his Wilkins cousins and Grandma Vincent.  Mom and I decided to go for family home evening.  I am glad we did I don't know that I will go again until my kids a like a lot bigger. the maze was to big for them. They did have stuff for the littler kids to do, but we went through them pretty fast, and the main event is the corn maze. 
My kids were so sad when they had to wash their faces. I was sad because It didn't come off very easy.  In fact they still had remnants the next day to wear to school .

Trip to Denver

This is how Madalynn felt about the carousel.

 We Got to go to the zoo the first day, that was amazing, it was an all day event. I was big, and had fun things to see. I will defiantly want to go back if we want to go to a zoo again.
 Prep for the fossil digging
Digging for a fossil

 The next day Randan didn't get to go with us but we had fun anyway. We went to The science and history museum.  That would have been another long day, but Madalynn was done, and I was not  drive back to the hotel in rush hour traffic in a city I wasn't  familiar with. They had lots of exhibits to see, and do. For instance we got to do a science  experiment.  We extracted DNA from wheat germ, we learned more about our body, we learned about Dinosaurs, space, and gem stones.  I was so glad to get to go on this trip with my family. 

Madalynns 1st Birthday

We had dinner ( Stew , Rolls, and some Salads). We opened gifs then had Cake and  Ice-cream.
I cant believe how fast that first year went it is getting worse with every child.   

Little Rascel

I left the pantry door open and she got in the hot chocolate. 

Good Bad and Ugly

My mom has wanted to have more storage in her kitchen since she bought the house, and she defiantly has the room. We bought some pre fab cabinets at Lowes, and put them together to make a pantry. I wish I would have got a final product picture,  but this was a month or more long project, and I think I forgot to get one.
Looking at the bottom picture maybe my mom doesn't want me to help her with any more projects I was drilling in screws and she was holding the cabinets, and I drilled right through her finger.  I think that qualifies for the bad and ugly. 

Harvest Creation 2017

Well this wasn't our first attempt this year, but our best outcome. He sure is proud of it and right up his ally with the Legos. 


This little girl has wanted to take dance from the Power House studio for about two years. We were having ice cream one night at Cold Stone and she saw some girls come out all dressed up in the dance cloths. She was enamored. 
This is our first day. Sorry for the picture quality I had to take it fast,  and through the window. 


This year. To be more specific this summer I was put into the Young Women's.  I am the secretary. about a month or two after we were put in was when the girls went to girls camp. The director asked of I would help with some gifts for the girls.  Of course I obliged. The theme this year was President Hinckley's B's (We were Be Smart).  I tell ya this was so much fun. The bag was full with honey flavored snacks. The cup had a tic tack toe game. There is a neckless with a poem about a bee and how by the laws of nature it shouldn't be able to fly,  and the jar had Burt's Bees products.  I wanted all of them.     

This little girl wont stop sucking on a rag. Must feel good to her teeth. 

First Day of School 2017

This one was taken fright out side her school. She was so excited. She had been talking about it for a year and half.  

It is a very surreal  feeling to have two kids in school.  One in third and one in pre-school. These are the moments when I realize that time does fly.

Memorial Day 2017

This year for Memorial Day we went with Randan's family on Sunday to deliver flowers, we went to the Jensen cemetery and the Drive fork cemetery.  Granny Mae at Jensen and Pa Dean at Drive fork.
After words we stopped at a park and ate sandwiches and played some ball.  
The next day Tucker, Raegan, Madalynn, Mom, and Grandma Southam went to my family which is all buried at the Vernal Cemetery.  That evening we ate at moms house with Christine and her kids and Randan.  
I know that we celebrate Memorial Day mainly because we want to pay respect to the men, and women that severed for our country. Which I am very grateful for.  I am just glade we get to recognize our family member as well.   

Spring ball 2017

This is our third year of playing spring ball, but first on city league. He really enjoyed it. I was very impressed with his coach. He taught Tucker more this spring season then Tucker learned all the other seasons combine.
Tuck would play first a lot, sometimes third, and short stop. Once he was catcher, and once pitcher. His team was the Angels. They were a pretty good little team. 
True to spring ball, you never knew what king of weather you were going to get, so I always packed for winter, and summer.  It felt like I was packing the hole house every time, but I got a system and it worked. One of Tuckers games the heavens opened up, and man it hailed. 
Randan and I were so sick that night, we had some kind of stomach flu, he was loose, and I was throwing up. Luckily the kids never got it.
I completely love watching him play ball. When he concentrates he is a pretty good little player.

Big Girl

This is her first time sitting in a cart all on her own. She has a buckle around her waist (you can't see) that is helping hold her up.
She has started to be able to sit on her own.  You have to sit by her 'cause she is still not that steady.  She's growing up way to fast.

Easter 2017

So on the Haslem side of the family we went to Split mountain/ Green river. We had fried chicken and salads, had an Easter egg hunt, and then went and played by the water. Same place we went last year, but this time we had the Harrison kids and Randan. So much more fun.

On The Vincent side we went to Pug Hat on Blue Mountain. They have a picnic area. We had hot dogs and salads and then walked around the scenic out look. Lots of fun.

Raegans Dance

If you know this girl all she does all day is dance and sing around the house. We had missed the deadline to sign up for the dance group she wanted to dance with so to pass time I signed her up for a six week cores that they put on at our local recreation center. She loved it. I am glade we started her out with this to get are feet wet. I think we will do it one more time before she starts the actual dance group.
