Birthday Week 2011

Okay, so the kids had a birthday in, oh that's right, FEBRUARY. It's only taken me a few months to blog about it. We opted for the easy Chuck E Cheese route. Addie brought her friend Gavin and the kids had a blast!

I ♥ Couponing

I have a new hobby that I'd thought I'd share. That's right, I've turned into one of those crazy coupon ladies and I love it. I've been couponing for a year now and don't know how I shopped before this. I still feel like I'm not super extreme. Like, I don't have a binder or have multiple newspaper subscriptions, but trust me, both are tempting. My favorite stores are Walgreens, Smiths, and Walmart. Now that I have a pretty good handle on those, I may look into adding a few new store this coming year. I keep wondering, if Bobby wasn't in school and our budget SO tight, if I'd still coupon. I think I would. This is just a nice outlet for my shopaholic tendencies, and no remorse afterward!

My latest Walgreens run:
Grand total, $5.14

Some Random Christmasness

We've had a very quiet and non-stressful Christmas in Utah this year. I hated not being near extended family, but tried to enjoy all the time we had to spend together, just the four of us! Here are some random Christmas pictures for ya!


We made "Ranc" and "Carter" Christmas cookies this year. Maybe next year we'll do the "Reuel" cookies. Wouldn't want them to die out.

This was her best decorating year so far. Very precise.


Nothing quite says Christmas like a BYU basketball game.

Addie is VERY into taking pictures with our camera. This is one of her favs.

Our reenactment of the Nativity story needed a few more bodies but was AWESOME!


And well, the children we spoiled like usual!







Things Rachelle forgot to bring her camera to: our Christmas riverboat ride and the Thanksgiving Point light festival. Way to go me.

Temple Square

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the lights at Temple Square! We had such a fun time as a family enjoying these lights. They do such an incredible job and I love how Christ centered everything is. This was the kid's and Bobby's first time, which always makes it better.






Merry CHRISTmas everyone!!!

First Big Snow Day of 2010


His new name is Ralphie






What can I say? The kids LOVE the snow and I'm still not a fan.

A Little Ballet

Thought I'd post a little ballet video. Boy does that girl like to spin.

One of these things is not like the other...

One of these things just doesn't belong.


If anyone has any suggestions for keeping children out of my shelves, just let me know.



What do you do when your washer shakes the whole house in the spin cycle? Make it into a fun ride for the kids. They love doing the laundry.

Just for kicks.
