Halloween Parade 2009

Today was the Halloween parade at the kids school. I always enjoy going over to see the kids parade around in their costumes and see the other creative costumes that are always there. This year Rilee is the Headless Horseman. Ashlee is a Hipee. and Kyller is a Cowboy. Tonight is the anual Pickle Halloween party and the kids are pumped to go as always. I also enjoy this particular party because everyone dresses up and it is fun to see all the families in their costumes! Happy Halloween all!

Bronco Show

Yesterday me and Rilee went down to Ken Garff of Orem to watch the Bronco Mendenhall Radio Show. It was at our friend Brian's car dealership so we thought it would be fun to go see it and maybe get a autograph or two. Rilee and I entered some drawings and filled out a Ask the Coach question form. As the show started we listened in and on the first commercial break Rilee went up to Coach Mendenhall and got him to sign her jersey and my football!! She was way nervous at first but Bronco was very nice to her and she was beaming from ear to ear when she came back and sat down. That was worth the drive right there but then it got even better!! About half way through the show the producer came over and asked Rilee if she would come up and ask Bronco her question live on the radio! She was happy to do it and was once again grinning from ear to ear! What else can I say but...

-Finding a babysitter for the other kids...difficult

-Driving to Provo in rush hour traffic...Painful

-Listening to kids fight the whole way...terrible

-Seeing your little girl that happy...PRICELESS!!!

What a great night that we will both remember for a long time! GO COUGARS!!!!

I'm Back!

Since may last post was months ago I figured I was due. We have been busy as usual. Lots of fun outings during the summer and now with football season in full swing we have been keeping busy with the cougars and I have been enjoying any and all games I can see! I have enjoyed going to the Y games this year with alot of different people and look forward to the rest of the season! Yesterday We had a Anderson Halloween party at our house because Dan and Chelsea are moving to Little Rock, only for a year we hope, so we won't see them on Halloween and so we had a excuse to have a early party. The kids loved decorating cookies and carmel apples and dressing up in their costumes!

We are still trying to sell the house but not having much luck. I am loving the fall weather so far but dreading the winter months to follow!! Lets hope this post will motivate me to do some more sooner than 3 months later!!
