10 years!!!!

September 24th 1999 I married my best friend in the St.George temple . I can't believe its been that long ago. We've been through so much in that time, and looking back, I wouldn't trade any experience that we've had. I was only 19 when we got married, but I don't regret it for one minute. We've done some pretty amazing things together, been to some pretty amazing places, and we have the most beautiful kids in the world. I don't know what I would do without Tom in my life. I know that this past couple of years has been pretty rough, we've been in some situations that have not been ideal, but we've managed to make it through. I know that things will continue to get better as the years go on. I can't beleive I'm lucky enough to be married to such an incredible man. Tom is a great dad, and a great husband. He's held my hand through many many many trials over the last 10 years, and I love him so much. Can't wait for the next 10! I thought I loved you then.......

First Day of school!!

So, finally, the day she waited months for finally arrived!!! PRESCHOOL!!!! Carleigh started last Wednesday, and she absolutely LOVES it!! I've never seen a kid more excited to go to school, but I'm sure that'll eventually wear off, maybe by the time she gets to Jr High! I won't lie, I got a little teary eyed dropping her off on her first day, I just can't believe that she is growing up so fast! Me and Tyse are really enjoying spending one on one time together, but Tyse really misses her! This is where Carleigh goes to preschool in the picture below: Carleigh hanging up her backpack! She got a new princess backpack that she LOVES!

Carleigh meeting new friends, and playing with toys, waiting for school to start!

SO EXCITED!!! Finally able to go to school!

This is Carleigh on her first day! I just love this picture!

This picture was taken last week, the day before school started. My kids love to listen to the radio and dance around the kitchen and sing!

Singing and dancing to Big Green Tractor!

Carleigh really got into it when Taylor Swift came on! Cute!!

Camping at Crystal Hot Springs

So, I am really bad at updating things on here, but I finally got around to doing it! These are some pictures of our camping trip to Crystal Hot Springs in August. It was a lot of fun. The whole family went, and I don't remember the last time that we all went on a trip together. It was only for 2 nights, but it was a lot of fun. It was the first time me and Tom have taken the kids camping(bad, I know!) and they had so much fun! Carleigh woke up in the morning, and said "I sleeped in a tent!" My mom's sister Kathie and her family were there too, it was some good times! This is my brother Tyler above.
Kalen and Jef playing with fire!

Havin' lots of fun, sitting around the fire, everyone looks tired!

Tyse and his buddy Bryce. What a good uncle!

Getting ready to eat some dutch oven dinner. Chicken, potatos, carrots, onions, mmmmmm, makes me hungry! Me and Jamie were way excited, we both hadn't had it in long time!

Tom doesn't need caffeine to wake him up, just give him a 7-up!

Our tent, me and Tom and the kids slept in the tent with Jamie, Jef and Payten. Good times!

Ok, this is not such a great picture, they're all looking down, but how cute are they?

Seriously, what else could go wrong???

Have you ever had a week where you wonder, what else could possibly go wrong? Well, we're having one of those weeks around here. Lets see, on Monday, Carleigh was running and she tripped over her own feet, and crashed into the wall. She has a HUGE bruise on her forehead thats now a lovely green color. Then, we tried to take the kids to the movies for FHE, and even though we were 20 minutes early, the movie was sold out, Carleigh cried until we took her to the park, and then that made her happy. Then, that night, Tom was asleep, and I was reading a book in bed, and I heard a horrible creaking sound and then a pop pop pop and our bed came crashing down on my side of the bed! We both screamed, it was around 2 in the morning, it scared the crap out of us! Our bed had a small crack in the side when we moved, and it finally gave way. It was so scary. Then, the next morning, Tom went to leave for work, and his car wouldn't start! We're hoping its just a dead battery, but it might be the alternator which is around $100 to fix. Then, when he was trying to fix the bed tonight, he hit his head on a piece of wood, and has a big gash above his eye! So, I'm hoping that the rest of the week goes a lot better! We have also had a lot of good and exciting things going on too. On Monday, Tom got a $5 per hour raise, which is completely awesome! It will help out so much! We are so grateful that he has a good job! We were able to go to the movie on Tuesday, we saw UP, it is a great movie, and has a great moral to it. And, next week my baby starts preschool! I can't believe how fast Carleigh is growing up! She is so smart and such a beautiful little girl. She is also on a dance team this year, which is a performing team, so that should be fun. And Tyse is learning more and more every day. Life is good, even if we've had a bad week!!
