First sign of snow!

Today it snowed in the valley!!! And we were very excited!!! (As you can see, no time to waste putting coats on!!) The kids are so excited to play in it, they are all old enough this year to enjoy the whole sledding thing. I was also very pleased because this meant Steven was stuck inside for the day... which means he had a big project inside that's been starring at us all, for many months actually! Its kind of a funny story, we are in the middle of finishing our basement (another project) in the meantime (while I'm at work) Steven decides to knock a huge wall out in our upstairs living room! Now Isn't that fabulous!! It will be, though projects around here tend to last awhile... I know, I even have a few myself! So tearing out our fireplace,we never used and knocking out the wall, here's what we've lived with for months now....
Here's a before picture
And here's an after, YES it is the same wall, I swear. It's just gone

Looking better already!!

So after a long days work he was able to get quit a bit done! I can live with it this way now for a few more months!!
While Steven was busy being the handy man I entertained asher and sabyn with a fort in the kitchen!

Thank goodness for the snow, and handy husband's with great ideas!

Bella's Big Day

On Saturday Bella was baptized! We are so proud of her, she is such a wonderful little daughter, and a loving big sister! I can't believe she is already 8 years old. I cannot say it enough, WHERE DOES THE TIME GO????

St. George

Ashley and Justin invited us to go with them and some of our other Friends to their family condo in St. George. It was definitely a small trip much needed! No trailor tents involved, nor were we searching for bugs!! We didn't even get lost and we all had a blast

asher and adra are little buddies!
We went to a place called Fiesta Fun

Ashley is posing so nicely while waiting for her turn to golf

The kids are all pretty close in age so they love to have each other there. Jauntae had a friends party to go to so she didn't go with us, I missed her being there!
So happy and free!!!
Thanks guys for the invite
