Thanksgiving Day!

I am a little behind on blogging but I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving day! We sure did. We had Jeff's Aunt Janice and Uncle Ron, his second parents over thursday and enjoyed their company for turkey day. The food was so yummy! The kids enjoyed playing baseball outside with Grandpa Ron. Then we had Jeff's side of the family Thanksgiving dinner on saturday at his brothers house. So we are a little turkeyed out. But oh the food was good!

The kids had so much fun carving the pumpkins but not to excited about the guts inside as they called them.

Rebecca not so happy about the pumpkin carving

Clayten's pumpkin face

Madison's pumpkin (we attempted to carve a cat)

Here is a picture of the kids in their costumes. Clayten was a power ranger, Madison was Hannah Montana, and Becca was a pink leopard. We went trunk or treating at our ward building and out to herriman to trick or treat some more with their cousins. They got so much candy!

Clayten's 6th Birthday Party

Clayten turned 6 years old on September 25th. We went to Classic skating and the kids had fun playing on the bouncy slides. They could have slept over if we would have let them. Clayten picked out his cake. The cake that had a toy motorcycle. What they have for kids these days!

Cousins and friends eating pizza and cake!

Clayten having fun!

They had to stop playing just so I could get a picture. They are too quick for me.

Grandpa Freking got a hold of Becca and the Chocolate cake! Yummy

The First Day of School

Yeah! The kids are back to school. I was running out of ideas to keep the kids busy during the summer. They are loving school and their teachers. I am always worried if they are going to like their teachers because I remember in grade school how I hated some of my teachers. Madison is in 2nd grade and Clayten is in Kindergarten. "Finally I'm in Kindergarten," he said the first day of school. He has been going to preschool for two and a half years. His birthday is September 25th so he missed the deadline. He wishes he could go all day like his big sister so he could have more recess and eat lunch at the school. It is nice to have alone time with Rebecca for a few hours in the morning. The kids are so excited when I go and pick them up, not to see me, but to see Rebecca. Everyday the first thing they say is "Hello Rebecca I missed you, mom did she miss me?" Oh yes honey she missed you so much. It is fun to see the love they have for her and how much they miss their baby sister. This photo makes it look like Clayten is taller than Madison but she is still an inch taller than her brother. Poor girl she has her moms height.

Lynn Family Reunion

The Lynn Family reunion was at Cherry Hills. I haven't been there for nine years and boy it has changed but they did some nice improvements. The kids loved going down the slides. We went down a few times with them but couldn't keep up so we just watched them go down by themselves. The older cousins got a train going in the lazy river of about 20 people. That was cool to see! We had a scavenger hunt for the kids and a yummy lunch at Marshall and Jill's house the next day. Who by the way put this reunion together and did a swell job. We all enjoyed being together. It was an awesome reunion!

Fishing and Camping

We went to scofield and camped over night and went fishing the next day. The only fish we caught that day. How sad:( But we sure had fun being together.

Chillin around the campfire while eating hobo dinners and apple cobbler from the dutch oven. Yum!

Madison and Clayten love sleeping in the tent

Lake Powell

We went to Lake Powell the 4th of July weekend. I am a little slow on posting. Sorry! Stayed on Jeff's brothers houseboat. We left Madison and Clayten with their cousins. It would have been nice to leave Becca but she is still attached if you know what I mean. I love Lake Powell! It is my favorite thing to do in the summer.

Jackson Hole Family Vacation

The end of June we went to Jackson Hole Wyoming for a week. That is why I missed the Reunion. Ya Ya I am sure you all missed me. Anyway, we had a blast! My brother Glenn came with his wife Amber, their son Carter, and Ambers parents Trish and Calvin. We went shopping, went white water rafting, enjoyed the Bar J wranglers, went to a rodeo, drove through The Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone Park. It was nice to get away and relax!

Madison Graduating 1st Grade

I can't believe I have a 7 year old. Man I am getting old. Madison finished school last week and her teacher had a graduation party and handed out awards. Jeff and I got a little choked up when Madison receieved 7 awards. We were so proud of her!

Clayten Playing Soccer

Clayten has been playing soccer this spring. He has one more game. Thank goodness cause I want to go back to sleeping in on saturdays. J/K I love watching him play. He started out not so aggressive but has improved. Two weeks ago he scored. Yeah! And last week he scored again. Go Buddy! I was so proud of him!! After he scored he ran up to me and said when do we go to the store and buy me a toy mom. Ha Ha!! I forgot I told him a couple weeks ago if he scores a goal I will take him to the store and let him pick out any toy. Man my kids remember everything I say. It doesn't hurt to bribe him a little bit....Right?

Memorial Day Weekend

For Memorial Day Weekend we went to a cabin in Hannah. It was rainy but the kids had fun! We went on paddle boats and kayaks. The kids enjoyed throwing rocks into the pond and fishing with their dad. It was Rebecca's first vacation!
