Pretty Little Princess!

Today was Brynlee's preschool Halloween Party! So they all got to dress up in their costumes for school. Brynlee was so excited!! But due to the terrible weather, I made her wear a pink shirt underneath her costume, and she was NOT happy about that!! I don't really blame her because it doesnt look as cute! :) They were also planning on doing a trunk or treat for the little preschoolers, but again since it was snowing, we just done it indoors, but the kids still had fun!
The pictures are all backwards, and Ididnt want to fix them! :) so....
here is a picture of Brynlee and one of her best friends, Ally.
Two princesses......Belle and Ariel

The whole class! what some cuties!!

I had to throw in what her back looked like! it turned out so cute!! we even finished her hair off with some gold glitter!!

can you say EXCITED!!! ........

Brax with his finished product! it took him quite awhile to do.

I realized I didnt take any pictures of Porters finished pumpkin, and didnt get any pics of the spray painted ones that we did either but they turned out way cute!!
Braxton had his 6th grade play the other night and did an AWESOME job!!! they did the play The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, and he was the lead character......Ichabod Crane!
He did so good and was sooo proud of him for memorizing all his lines and adding "extras" in with it!! His teacher was so impressed with how well he did it! It really was a great play and all the students that were in the play did a super job! way to go Brax! we are so proud of you and love you very much!!

this was hilarious!!! who would of thought to make a horse like this?!?! so cute!

This is one of Braxtons best friend....Bridger.

Porter got BAPTIZED!!! yeah, this was awhile ago, but anyways, I feel HORRIBLE I didnt take any pictures but this ONE! can you say "MOTHER OF THE YEAR" award?!?! I know, I know, awful. I do feel awful! I had my camera with me, and had EVERY intention on taking pics, but I simply forgot! But besides that, We are sooo proud of Porter and couldn't be happier for him in choosing to be baptized and become a memeber of the church! We love you bud!

Desert Big Horn Sheep Hunt.....

a couple of weeks ago, Josh went hunting Desert Bighorn Sheep, with Reggie, John, & Josey. they went for 4 days and packed in. Josh's pack weighed 55 lbs. They hiked lots and lots of miles! It was about 95 degrees during the day, with no shade, so it was a pretty hot hunt. But they had lots of fun, and had a great time!
This is how they slept the first night.....

this is how they slept the other nights..... (I would have stuck with the tent! )

John, Josh, & Josey

This is what happens when you hike for a long time! :)

Good Luck Porter and we are so proud of you for making this decision! We love you!!
