Catching Up

So I was looking at my phone & found some pictures I hadn't put on here -

One Sunday Cael wanted to be Hiccup from "How To Train a Dragon" so he had his sword & shield but he needed a hat - so we made one out of tinfoil. Don't laugh at my art skills - he was freaking out and wanted one right now!! He's a dork, but we still love him & don't laugh at his clothes, he dresses himself.

Cael has also been into hunting with his dad - Layne went to Canada for a week goose hunting & Cael did not like that he left him, so whenever Layne goes around here, Cael is going too no matter what. It's kind of cute & Layne loves that he wants to go hunting with him. These are pics from their last 2 hunts last week.

Here is a picture of Layne & I in Vegas - I seriously can't believe how blessed I am to have these two crazy boys in my life and the friends and family that we have!!

And another pic of Cael & I playing :)

Christmas Time

Wow - I haven't blogged for a while. Cael is so excited for Christmas, everyday he asks if it's Christmas yet, it's funny. What would we do without the threat of "Santa?" I love using - "If you don't talk nice, Santa won't come." or "If you don't clean up your mess, Santa won't come." I know it's mean, but it works!!
We went to Temple Square the other night - it was fun, but so cold! Cael had fun though, he loves the temple. To him Jesus lives in the Temple so he was kind of bummed we didn't go in it. And he is going on his mission to the Temple - which is fine with me, I don't think I could have him go very far away :)

While at the Visitor's Center a guy walked by us that looked just like Santa - and Cael grabbed me & said Santa is at the Temple - I said that is so cool - well the guy heard us and came over and shook Cael's hand and gave him a Candy Cane....oh man Cael loved it. Seriously kids make Christmas so much better - Cael is going to be so fun this year on Christmas morning! Layne & I are so excited!!

I was trying to decide what Cael should be for Halloween and I had found a lot of great costume ideas - when I listed them off to him he told me he wanted to be a "Cop." I said, "don't you want be something different or scary?" And he said, "no I want to be a cop like dad!" So he was a cop for Halloween - I found this costume and then with Layne's aunt's help I got him all decked out as a Lehi Police Officer...I have to say he was so handsome in it and I'm pretty lucky to have 2 cute Lehi Police Officers.

Big Buck Down!!

So Layne and I went Deer hunting with my family last weekend - we saw some nice ones but we couldn't get close enough. I've killed little two points but I told Layne I wanted something bigger - so yesterday we took a horse ride to Ophir and as we came over this ridge we saw two really nice bucks - I knew by Layne's face when he jumped off of his horse that they were nice. So he told me which one to shoot and I nailed it - one shot!! I don't think either one of use realized how big it was until we hiked down to it - we were both so pumped!! It was so much fun!! There is nothing better than hunting with my sexy husband!!

Hunting with my Boys

We went hunting last night - Well actually we went for a 4-wheeler ride up to the towers up above West Canyon - it was so nice to get out, and Cael had a blast running around and looking for deer :)

Dove Hunt 2011

Last night Layne took us Dove hunting in my dad's fields - oh wow we had a blast. Josh & Travis brought their girls and the kids just ran around like crazy. The doves were flying all over - but no one could seem to hit them - ok I couldn't hit them but the boys could :) It was still fun - I promise I make Cael bath but between the dirt road & the pizza they ate he looks like a dirty little boy!!

So I couldn't hit any flying doves so these other birds flew off of the field and I nailed one of those instead - I don't know who was more shocked me or Layne!!

Cael's 1st Day of Preschool!

I have never seen a kid so excited to go to school before! Don't you love the back pack? He wanted one with wheels - he's such a dork already...I can't believe how big he has gotten - he's becoming quite the little man - lately he even opens my car door for me. I love this kid!!

Archery Hunt

No we didn't die - I seriously took the summer off - and I haven't been on the computer from the end of June until now and school is starting and it sucks!! We had such a great summer - Cael took swimming lessons, gymnastics, we played, camped and just hung out. It has been great!! Layne has seriously worked his butt off on our yard - pictures to come when it's all finished! Here are some pics of our recent hunting trip to Fairview - we went with Brooke, Josh, Macee & Tyce and Cael had a blast...thank goodness we are going again next weekend because he was so mad we had to come home - so was Layne :)

Cael's First 4-H Practice

So our family decided that since we have so many grandkids that we should have our own 4-H and because the rules at the real 4-H have changed and they were making all of the kids wear helmets this we all figured we could teach the kids what they needed to know about riding horses. So every Monday night we meet and Grandma & Grandpa's for 4-H unless the weather is bad :) Cael had a blast, we all share horses, and we all had dinner. 11 out of the 12 grandkids rode and it was so fun!
