Kid will be Kids!

Yesterday was one of those days. This is one post you will have to imagine, because I don't have any pictures to show. Austen had ball games yesterday so I decided to take the afternoon off. We went and watch him play and them grandpa and grandma took me and boys to lunch. After lunch we headed home Jake was super tired and ready for a nap. I came home put him down for a nap and that is when it all started. Auten and Tanner came in with some friends and asked if they could play down stairs I said, "sure if you guys are quiet because Jake is asleep". Well time went on and all of a sudden I start hearing the boys down stairs yelling we won your out all kinds of stuff and I thought they were just playing air hockey or some games we have down there until I start hearing all of this banging going on. That is when I decided to go and investigate the situation. I open the door to the basement and you will never believe what they had done. They dumped every tote that I own out in a pile and built walls out of them one for each team. When I opened the door all I saw was things flying including: tennis rackets, sleeping bags, decorations, pictures, wrapping paper, snow clothes, empty totes, and anything you could possibly imagine including potatoes. I was so furious I just look at my boys and said up stair now. They turned around and say to their friends I think my mom is mad. Do you think! I was so angry I couldn't even get mad they already knew what was to come. Cleaning the basement all by themselves. I made them sort everything back into piles and then find the right totes for everything. It took them the rest of the night to get it all cleaned up which they still have a little work to do to day on it. When I asked them what made them think it was okay to do something like that. They both said, "well you said we could play down stairs." So for their punishment they had to clean the basement which was complete torture for them, they lost the brand new psp's, and their dad grounded them from the basement forever. I had to post about this because deep down inside of me I mean deep down inside of me I had a little laugh and definitely something I will remember forever. I love them both so much and they are good boys, I just think that sometimes kids will be kids. But honestly what were they thinking!

First Snow Fall of 2008

The other night Mike was out shoveling the driveway and Jake was honestly have major anxiety not being able to go out, so I dressed him up and let him loose with his dad. He absolutely loved it and did not want to come in. The boys have been sledding every night with neighbor kids. I have to been a mean mom to get them to come in. They would stay out all night if I let them.

Austen's Preisthood Preview

Can't believe that my little boy will get the priesthood next year! Sunday Austen had his priesthood preview to talk to him and the other boys about the blessings of the priesthood and all of the wonderful things that you can do with the priesthood when they turn twelve. I am so proud of him and the person that he is becoming. He is growing up so fast and I am trying to let him grow up, but deep down inside I want him to stay my little boy forever. Enjoy the pictures he wasn't to happy I was taking them, but a mom will be a mom.

5 year Anniversary

This past weekend Mike and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary. We took off Friday night after work and headed to Salt Lake. We dropped the boys off at my sisters and headed down for some time ALONE. Friday night when we got there we went over to temple square and looked at the lights. That is one of my favorite things to do this time of the year. The temple grounds are so pretty with all of the lights. Then we headed to our hotel where we slept great and woke up at our own time. Saturday we headed out to do a little Christmas shopping and had a great lunch and then headed home since the roads were getting yucky. We had a great time. I want to tell Mike how much I love him, and tell him that these last 5 years have been the best years of my life. I can honestly say I have the best husband in the world. He takes such good care of me and our boys and works so hard to support us. I love you Mike!

Transition into Boy Scouts!

Last Saturday morning the boys had pack meeting for Scouts. Austen was pretty excited for this pack meeting. He has his transition from cub scouts to boys scouts. He thought it was pretty cool. He loves going to scout every Tuesday night at the church. They do some of their activities with the Deacons so he really enjoys going. Austen earned his Weblos badge, couple other segments and earned 9 pins to put on his shirt. I am very proud of him. He worked very hard to get it done. Tanner also earned some awards. I am very proud of him also. They both have enjoyed scouts. After the transition and awards they play some games and made refreshments. Just as you all know Jake had to be part of the action so here are some pictures of them pulling each other in the totes.
