BACK TO SCHOOL 2009!
It felt really strange taking the traditional first day of school photo with only TWO boys! :(
That's because Bryce decided to go off to college and abandon his mom! Who gave him permission to grow up anyway??? NOT ME...that's for sure!!!
He is attending Utah State University on scholarship. My oldest son Skyler, is also attending USU but he is not fan of his mom taking pictures of where he is living! Or taking pictures of HIM for that matter!
Me, Bryce, and McKay in the
Father and son...
Bros outside his
Now this↓ kid has the right idea!!! No growing up please! I told him he will NEVER be too big to sit on my lap and he took it at face (lap) value! I am sooooooooo glad he did! As long as I'm living my baby you'll be...
Somewhere, somehow, sometime, THIS ↓ one decided he could turn 16 on me and be old enough to date!!! NO!!!
He got asked to Sadies (his first real date) by a very darling girl.
A girl after my own style... hehe!
The "day date"....
Aren't they just so cute?!!!
Dinner with great friends!
We ate at Iggy's and since there was a big game on that night, we strategically placed the men facing the big screen.
Looks like Janzen ↓ ordered some kind of happy drink!
We girls ↓ are happy because we had dessert....or did we? It's been so long I can't remember, but I am pretty sure we wouldn't all be looking so giddy if we had skipped the chocolate.
Trying to decide on a silly pose...
This is the best we could come up with. Maybe we didn't ingest that chocolate after-all!
You know FOOTBALL season is in full gear when you see me in here:
Working in the high school concession stand. I got quite the workout. It was wall to wall (four lines deep!) customers for nearly the entire game!
McKay and Taylor both played football again this year. Having only two play was much easier than three! McKay played little league and Taylor played on the high school team. Taylor played Sophomore but also gets to suit up with Varsity because he is A-mazing! He is having an awesome season! He is playing both ways and making all kinds of sacks, strips, tackles, blitzes, and even a 60 yard touchdown! It is so fun to watch him! McKay's season hasn't been as prosperous. But even though his scores don't show it, they are an awesome bunch of boys!
Because we spend so much time watching THIS ↑
We spent our 27th Anniversary like THIS ↓
Yep at one of Taylor's football games. But I'm not complaining. I love to watch his games anytime. We did go out to dinner after even though we walked in the restaurant at 9:48 p.m. and they closed at 10 p.m.
27 years? It can NOT be possible! It was just yesterday I was picking out my wedding dress! Thanks hon for a fabulous 27 years! ♥
Peach Days Fun!
Having a light sabre war with Janzen. I am pretty sure I won!
Look who I found at Peach Days! Yep, my BFF and chocolate sista - Jaida!!! I so LOVE this girl!!! She went and moved on me and so now I don't get to see her very often!
How I spent my summer vacation!
Yep pretty much. I'm just glad I didn't fall off the ladder. Then I would've spent my vacation in jail for murdering Dave for not hiring someone else to do this!
Lunch ~ Lunch ~ and MORE Lunch!
Bonnie, Mona, and me eating out at a yummy Mexican place. I love these women! And NO, I am not heavy with child! This shirt just makes me look like it! Or maybe I just ate too much!!!
Eating out again and at the same place! But different days I swear - maybe THAT'S why I wore that preggo top above!!!
This time with the Relief Society Presidency I served with about four years ago. I am sure you can see by the look in our eyes that we had a LOT of fun in this calling! Oh the stories I could tell. Still when we get together, we laugh so hard reminiscing that the tears can't be stopped. This time I almost needed a Depends because I almost wet my pants!!! Good times, good laughs, good women!!!
This is another Relief Society Presidency I served with about 15 years ago! We have tried to get together for lunch off and on over the years. What an incredible bunch of women. They all taught me so much!
We went to Maddox! YUM!
Lunch with a few of my old (and I do mean OLD! heehee) high school pals! Nah, we will never be old because we laugh way too much when we get together! We went to TGI Fridays.
They teased me that I wasn't wearing purple and so I tinted this photo to prove them wrong!
Barbara, me, Carla, and Bonzo. We have such good laughs together! We've all reconnected on Facebook and it has been so fun. We had five others that weren't able to make it that we also reconnected with on FB.
OUT TO DINNER with the fam (the shrinking fam!) sniff- sniff...
Taylor couldn't stay awake. ↓ Football is kicking his hiney! He is always so beat!
Look what I found! Well I wish! He is our friend's pup that got lost on the mountain and so we got to tend him for a bit while they tried to find his mom. What a cutie!!! I think he kinda liked me too.
I REALLY NEED one of these!!!
Lynda, me, and Steph
I didn't take enough pictures of this event to really make this blog worthy, but just the one below made it worth it.↓
Check out Dave's face! I had NO idea he saw us at this point. Then I heard him ask me what we were taking a picture of. Steph hurried and snapped it and then we took off running! Guess if he reads my blog, now he'll know! Bwhahahaha!!!
That's all folks! At least FOR NOW!!!
