Thanksgiving 2009

Gramps headstone was put in the day before Thanksgiving.....We bought a fall/thankgiving flag to put by his grave but didn't want to put it up until they placed the headstone...So on thanksgiving day we stopped and put it up... It (headstone) turned out so beautifull.... We miss him terribly and especially on all the holidays that we used to share with him!!! We know that families are forever but it is still hard to not have him around!!!!!!

Way to go Braxton!!!!

He made the Jr. high Basketball team....We knew he could do it but is very tired sore and generally not feeling well but i dont know if its the flu or the getting up at 5:40 a.m. for practice and then staying after school till about the same time 5:40 p.m. every day this week :0( maybe a combination of both :0(
Anyway we are proud of him and are excited to see him play again this year!!!

What do you think??

I(we) want to go on another cruise SO bad..... The kids want to go too or to disneyland...
I like disneyland but want the cruise more here is the dilema....I would love for the kids ( not Kambree which brings a whole other issue ) to go on a cruise cause there is SO much for them to do too and eat whenever they want which around here is ALL the time and Disneyland food or around the park is so expensive BUT i really like having the cruise time with just Curt.... Having someone that will watch the kids has been hard so my mom said she can come down after the first of the year!!! The other issue is which cruise..... we LOVED the eastern carribean and really liked Mexico even though that place is kind of scary to visit right now it has the cruise port closest to us and the cheapest cruises.... The Alaska cruise sounds fun although not a warm one!!!
If we did Alaska it would be more closer to summer and i don't want to wait that long WE NEED A BREAK..... The carribean you have to port out of Florida which means you have to pay more for airfare to get there and get a hotel since you can't fly in the day of your cruise you need to be there the day before SO.... Do we ditch the kids and go on the cruise adults only and where too?
Or take them on a shorter 3-4 day cruise and have my mom just watch Kambree?? Too many questions i know so what do you think?

Seattle trip

My mom was having surgery on her foot and I happened to have the time off work so i decided to go up and help out.... My neighboor was able to get my a buddy pass for a good deal but let me tell you flying with a 1.5 year old is not fun!!!
I was able to spend a couple days with mom and sister which was nice... Kambree was being shy and standoffish to my mom ( I feel so bad cause my mom LOVES her and brought her a treat for the ride back, calls her sweetie and her red curly haired princess) but Kambree warmed right up to my sister and would let her hold and kiss on her which i really needed a break sometimes since Kambree was really clingy and whinney at times :0(
The day of mom's surgery Kambree was being the biggest stinker... I was the only one there that day everyone else had to work and Kambree was being a 2 year old.
Mom didn't do well with the anesthesia so she had tons of nausea and had be given all the meds and a patch to stop it but it wasn't working so they decided to keep her overnight and i was very glad for that... who better to take care of her and be able to give her more anti nausea meds if needed during the night then the nurses... the next morning she was fine and able to go home.
I feel so bad for all the struggles in life my mom has gone thru... I even played the lottery in hopes of winning to help all my family out and to be able to live closer to each other ... my mom loves all her grandchildren... they know where all the treats and toys are at her place and she loves spoiling them... I wish I had them around here... Maybe someday.
It was hard and humbling taking care of her but it made me be so gratefull for my health, husband and children i can't live without, a home to live in , a part time job that i like, ect.

Nursery time!!!!!!

Yea...... Kambree is old enough to go to nursery but..... she cries :O( makes me feel so bad!!!
She has only gone twice but i think she cried longer this time then last... Parker used to start crying right after the closing prayer in sacrament cause he knew were he was going!!!!!
I hope soon i can just take her in and she starts playing without wanting me to be in there.
Her and I are leaving for Washington this week to go see my family (My mom is SO excited to see her curly haired Grand daughter) and i'm afraid that is going to set her progress of seperation anxiety back missing a week!!!! God bless all you nursery people cause I KNOW it must be hard to have several little ones bawling and your trying to calmn them down ... THANK YOU!!!!!!

Papa's 88th Birthday....

We love Papa and Nana So much.... Papa is sick and we don't know how much longer he will be here with us which makes us sad because he is such an important part of the family!!!!! Kambree didn't want to smile in the pics when we were there for his Birthday she only wanted to get down and run around opening cupboards and playing with ralphee( every animal to her is named ralphee) but it is really papa's stuffed monkey that she plays with while were there that they named ralphee!!! Braxton was reminiscing with papa about how he used to do the Indian death lock on him and papa said well get down here and i'll do it again... We should have got a pic of Parker crying because he got stung by a wasp for the first time out on there swing but our the memory on our camera was full... sorry Parker no pics of you this time :0(

Happy 4th of July!!!!!!!!!!

Yep I forgot my camera for the Family BBQ and Our Neighboor's spur of the moment get together ( does that suprise ya?)
Anyway i will write it out then........... We went to Curts family BBQ and had a great time kids got into a water fight, Played cards, hit at pinata and just chatted with family that was in from out of town and ones that we don't see very often!!!
Then we came home grilled some steak alittle later and had fresh corn on the cob....
I had bought stuff for smores like 2 weeks ago that we still hadn't done on our fire bowl so we hauled it out on the driveway with some lawn chairs and saw a couple neighboors out and invited them to come over for smores and then watch our little firework show that the boys were dying to light!!! Kambree LOVED the fireworks and not too long after we were done Clearfield started there so we walked across the street with some chairs and watched them on Palmers lawn!!!!
I LOVE being at the park but Curt hates the crowd and getting in and out of where ever you park so we have watched them from across the street for 2 years now and I STILL think Clearfield has the best fireworks around!!!
Then night before on the 3rd we went to RedRobin with Salines and then to the Westpoint fireworks which was really cool with the patriotic music playing but I still think Clearfield has the best show!!!!!! I love the BBQ'S , Fireworks and music this time of year and always am so thankfull we live in America and the freedoms of which i enjoy and last but not least the people who fought and sacrificed there life for our freedom THANK YOU!!!!!!

Fathers Day weekend!!!!!

Kambree needed to take a nap so daddy was going to watch her while i was out with the boys... guess who ended up asleep first not Kambree :0)

The pool was chilly and Kambree didn't like that at all but LOVED dangling her toes in the hot tub as we sat on the side of it.... sorry no pics thats after the camer died :0)

The recycled paper straws at squatters(sp) that ended up on our napkins cause they made your drink taste weird... it was like drinking out of a toilet paper roll. LOL

Kambree clapping and saying " good gwirl" for walking all on her own!!!

Taking the dog to go potty was not as easy as opening our sliding glass door at home!!!

We decided to take Curt to Parkcity for the weekend for his Fathers day gift!!!! We had a great time!!! The boys DO NOT like shopping so needless to say I can't wait for Kambree to get old enough to want to do that with me. It rained the day we planned on going to the apline slide but that's ok we had a poolside room and that is what the boys did the most... swam, played pool, pingpong and video games at the arcade!!
I remembered my camera and was able to get a "few" pics before the batteries died but kept forgetting to buy new ones!!! It was a fun much needed get away with great memories!!!

Good news....Bad news....

SO i posted about a not so good memorial day weekend right with pics well...... The good news is the valve is NOT broke..... The bad news is they didn't have to spend 2 days digging out 5 1/2 feet of dirt either!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The 3rd guy we called finally came by tonight ( thanks emily for offering a coworker to come see what it would cost ) and said it never got turned off over the winter and so the water just stays in there and eventually comes up the white pipe but it would have stopped :0( so he fixed the sprinkler line braxton broke digging not thinking it would be there and put a cheap invoice for coming out to look and the fixing and left!!!!! I don't know weathear to be happy or not about this since it took forever that holiday weekend and i REALLY wanted to go to ParkCity over night but didn't cause we weren't sure what was going on with the valve!!!!! SO now we just have to fill the hole and probably get a little piece of sod cause i'm sure the grass didn't survive with no water under a huge pile of dirt.... Nice huh.... Oh well such is life!!!

Not so fun memorial day pics!!!

The first pic is our 4 year anniversary of living in this home ( WE LOVE IT )!!!
The second pic is of braxton's hand sticking out of the hole he was in.
Braxton and Curt had to dig about 5 1/2 feet down to fix this valve thingy. They both started the digging and bless his heart Braxton did most of it after so many feet down cause Curt couldn't fit in that tiny of a space!!!! Brax NEVER complained not even once just got the digging part done!!! He is such a GREAT YOUNG MAN!!
Now once they finally got to the valve they couldn't figure out how to get it off to replace the
new one so after calling 3 different companies to come fix just that part we hopefully will get a guy out tommorow to take a look at it and tell us how much it will cost to switch out the old one with the new :0)
