Getting Christmas Trees

We decided this year we were going to get a real tree instead of a fake tree. So we headed up the mountain, and this is what we found. The snow was so deep that when dan and I walked out to get a tree it went up to my knees.

Addison had to play in it she was so excited.. Our dog Titan thought it was great too.. He was bouncing every where..

It was fun.. we al froze but addison said that it was her best day ever :) So it must of been worth it..

a little updated

So Here are just some random Pictures that I wanted to post about.. We got a new member of our family his name is Titan, and he is totally spoiled we adopted him from the shelter and couldn't be happier.. He never barks, doesn't shed, and is good around my kids.. Dan has been going ice fishing alot it is his favorite thing to do.. Ah thank goodness for winter LOL here is just a few of the fish he has been catching they are so pretty.

Taylee is finally getting some hair. Addison favorite thing is to put her hair in a mo-hawk it is kind of cute.

I have been playing with my photography software and made this graduation announcment for a friend.. I also got a studio and am so excited to get it set up. We are going to put it in our guest room :)

Addison has been reading like crazy for school and I am so proud of her. What a smart little thing she is. I love her so much..

Barclay Thanksgiving

This year for thanksgiving we decided to have it a week early. It has been almost 4 years since all of us had been in the same room. So its safe to say its about time.. We did a christmas/thanksgiving dinner. It was so much fun.. Here is Addison, Preston & Quinn working on their gingerbread houses. Of course someone alwasy gets hurt.. Addison was jumping on her bed and got this shiner.. It looks like she has purple and blue eyeshadow on.. I told her this is why we tell her not to jump on the bed, its because we love her and don't want her to get hurt. (maybe next time she will listen)

There is also always a disaster. Poor cami & arley we gave them so much hassle to come a day early so we could all be together and of course they lost a tire.. thank goodness for walmart..

This is Ryan, Cami, Dave, Mylea & Dan they haven't all had a picture together for who knows how long??
Here they are again .. Totally can't tell they are related or anything.. LOL Don't ask about dan I have no idea why his hand is on his heart maybe secretly he was practicing the pledge of allegiance.
Here is Ryan, Dan step dad Richard his mom Clarinda, Mylea Cami & Dan
It was such a fun time, Hopefully we can do it again next year..

last sunday we went on a family drive it was about 6 hours long but it was so much fun we went from marysvale to monroe.. I wanted to take some pictures of the girls and dan and also the leaves.. I LOVE it when the leaves change.. Anyhow here is just a few:

Addison had so much fun picking bright leaves off the trees, we took her picture by the brightest pink tree we could find.. LOok at the smirk on her face she loved it.

This one of taylee is on a bridge in marysvale we drove past and I made Dan stop.. good thing he is such a good sport..If you want your family picture taken by the leaves let me know I found some awesome spots.. and I would be more then willing to take a few..

So I decided that I need to share some of the funny things Addison has said lately keep in mind she is way to grown up for her age-

Addi - Mommy, How come doesn't my big grandpa (AKA dan Dad) Have a girlfriend?
Me - I dont honey
Addi - Don't you think its kind of wierd??

Sorry Had to share this one
Addi - Why do your underwear go up your butt and mine don't?
Me - Because I buy mine that way
Addi - Is it because your butt is so big?

I had just walked by someone that smoked

Addi- You stink MOM!! your gonna make my new dress smell like smoke? why do they smoke?
Me - Some people just like too
Addi- You stink, now people are gonna think you smoke to mom

Addi - I can't possible clean my own room

Addi - I'm too full for dinner, can I have candy

Addi - We saw 11 pot butts (Pot guts) However she kept calling them pot butts

Addi - I just want to eat Taylee up in big bites because she is SO CUTE!!

Addi - Mom, you can exercise anytime because I want you to lose weight so you can be skinny

OH addi - she totally cracks me up can't believe how her mind works..
