I'm not gonna lie.....this years Chritmas Card was a flop.....down to the location (we had to hurry and pull over cause sun was falling so fast)..didn't make it to the mountains, then the day I needed to send them to get printed I was moving out of my house....Then the postal man lost them.....Didn't get the photoshoping done I should have.....WHATEVER.....BUT

First of all I have to say.....There are many pictures to follow...We took the kids sledding up at Mt. Charleston (30 mins from our home) There is a ski resort and all......who ever knew Vegas had a ski resort....Anyways we had a BLAST. The kids had the time of their lives. Russ and I laughed the whole time watching them jump and slide. I TOOK several picts of Tia standing so adorable.....I photoshoped some more than others, you will see......A VERY MEMORABLE day as a mother.........PRICELESS



AS you can see all Madi wants for Christmas is her two front teeth.....

Thankgsiving, and boy are we THANKFUL

Thanksgiving was a fabulous time here in Las Vegas for our family.
My parents, Buck, Kari, Kaeli and Doug came. We had a great time, Cooking, Shopping, Eating, playing nerf gun tag, and watching Football. Thanks everyone for coming. I would have to say my highlight was getting up at 3am black friday and getting my killer deal frontload washer and was a sacrafice but well worth it.

We have so much to be thankful for, and we are so Grateful for all our blessings.

HAppy BirTHdaY BUBBA!!!

*****Koda Bear you STUD*******...........Happy Birthday.....the big #5......
We love this little boy more than life...he is so much fun and wild
His hands are my favorite,
They are just so different than so many other little boys, very distinctive...tough...maybe it's I know one day they will take care of his mom, I don't know. I just love them.
His dad loves his hands and feet, he loves his rugged little run...

One of my favorite stories of Koda this past year: We were driving home from Lake Powell and he says to Russ and I, "So how did you two meet anyway?" It was so random yet adorable. Needless to say we told the story and he seemed to aprove.


*Koda Bear your a very rough, tough and wild little boy and I wouldn't change one thing about you.....I love my little MAN.

Thanks to all that came to his party, you helped make it a huge success.

Latest Projects

So this is what I have been up to lately..........Back to projects
I think like many of you I get on a kick of wanting to accomplish some fun homemade things, We have been needing some job charts in the house....I printed these 11x14 like pictures so we can write their jobs in and erase with dry erase markers.....they are actually pretty big. But I'll tell you what the kids are far it's working and we haven't even started

This is a corkboard I saw in michaels and just had to have, my friend Megan and I stayed up till midnight finishing them, so fun, and it will look great in Madi's room
