Ryker's now 8 years old




Ryker and Saylor

Can you believe Ryker is 8!!! His birthday was yesterday. We have been celebrating it now for a couple of days! haha. Time goes by so fast. I can't believe he is old enough to be baptized. We are going to baptize and bless Saylor on the same day. He is going to be baptized on New Years Day. I am so grateful for Ryker. He has helped me so much throughout his life....little does he know. He makes me SO happy and has helped me get through my bad times. He is a good student and all of his friends love him. He is a full of energy and is so talented in so many things. He loves baseball, basketball, tumbling, horses, swimming, etc. etc. He is so fun to watch him do all of it. He is always whipping out tricks. He helps me with his sisters and loves them so much. He has a special spirit about him. I am so thankful everyday I have him. Happy Birthday Ryker! I Love You!!!

Sweet little Saylor












Sweet little Saylor is here! She was born on November 18, 2010 at 12:19 a.m. She was exactly the same as Oakley 7lbs 15oz. and 21 inches long. I finally found time to post some pictures. This little baby is such a sweetheart. I catch myself spending hours holding and staring at her. I can't get enough of it. She is the best baby. Bo says she will be the little peacemaker of our family. I am having so much fun with these little girls. I got her pictures done the day after Thanksgiving. (Jen Herem Photography)
I will be posting more....

We had so much fun this last weekend running the 5K in Ogden. We ran with a WACKY group! WACKY stands for War Against Cancer in Kids and Young adults. Bo's step-brother Nick has had his struggle with cancer the last couple of years. It was so fun to be involved in this event with him and see all the money they raised to help others with cancer. It is amazing. Bo and I pushed Oakley in a stroller. (okay mostly Bo did the work :)) But we had so much fun together. My sister Sara and her husband Ryan ran the full Marathon together. I couldn't help myself from tearing up as they crossed the finish line. I don't know how they would want to do that! :) It is a huge accomplishment. This is Sara's 8th Marathon. She is so awesome! Bo's dad Lee also ran the Marathon. Luke and Jace thought it was so cool the run through the finish line with Papa Lee. We had such a good time that Bo thinks that he is going to run the next Marathon. Let's see! :)

Happy Anniversary!
I Love You!

Princess Party....Snow White!!!


Oakley's two favorite things: Snow White and Suckers (ring pop)
Snow White was so cute. Oakley had to go get her Snow White doll to show her!
Jenny, Lucy, and Tinkerbell (Molly)
Snow White brought her book and read to the girls. Oakley was glued to it. She couldn't get close enough! :)


Cute friends who came.

Later that night.....she turned into Tinkerbell (thanks for letting her wear it Molly)


My cute neighbor in my ward came up to me on Sunday and said "My daughter works for Disney, she is Snow White can she come visit Oakley!"

Me: "What are you serious! Snow White. Oakley is in love with Snow White." So first thing I called my sisters....Snow White is Coming! We threw together a princess party and while they were playing, Snow White knocked on the door. Oakley was star-struck! Snow White was beautiful. She played games, and read books, and signed a picture for each of the little girls to keep. It was such a fun and memorable day.

When does a Disney Princess show up to your house and play with your little girl?! I couldn't belive it. Thanks Snow White!

Happy St. Patrick's Day



Every year the leprechaun does something different to their rooms. This time he decorated it and threw gold coins and candy around. Ryker was a little scared when he woke up, he didn't really know what was going on. haha! We later that night went up to my sister Sara's house and ate the traditional corned-beef and cabbage. So Yummy! Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Also, speaking of "Patty"....I just wanted to say hi to her in Seattle! :) My Aunt Cathy loves you!!

Cold Western Caribbean Cruise???!

Key West
Formal night and Bo's birthday!!!
Happy Birthday BO!!!
Our waiter was trying to be funny and put this on his head.

Adam and Holly
The girls we went with
The "Bo Show" this is Greg and Bo entertaining us.
Grand Cayman
All our excursions were canceled because of the Haiti earthquake....so they took us to some lame dolphin and turtle farm. Seriously Lame.
Jamaica
Our boat
On the beach in Jamaica

Bo dancing around the dinner table
Bo and his buddies: Adam and Greg
Don't really know what we are trying to do.
This was one of the traditions....sitting around at 1-2 o'clock in the morning eating cheese, olives, pizza, fruit, meat puffs, and strawberry ice cream cones. Every night, no lie. My pants got tighter and tighter each day!!:)
We went on a Western Caribbean Cruise with a few of Bo's good friends. I was expecting it to be really warm and were going to lay out all day....Not. We froze our butts off the whole week. It totally was a bummer. I got in my swimsuit maybe twice. Crazy!!! We made the best of it. Bo had his birthday so that was fun and when we got to Jamaica it warmed up enough to go snorkeling and jet skiing.....(thanks Greg and Heather for putting me on with some random Jamaican dude, who knows what he was going to do. He said "it was going to be the craziest ride of my life) ha ha! Oh and it was! :) All we did was eat and eat and eat. Seriously all we did was eat. Thank goodness Bo was there. He entertained us everyday. We all called it the "Bo Show" ...and it truly was. Some things he did, I was laughing so hard and some things I was about ready to crawl under my seat and hide. He was fun, he told better jokes than the comedian, danced with foreigners, made comments to random people, sang his little heart out, became best buddies with our tour guide Lee, and the rest shouldn't be told about. We had a good time and it was nice to get away....but next time it better be warm!! ha ha!!
