Our First ThAnkSgiVinG...

This year we spent thanksgiving at Mark & Cheryl's. Amber and Cheryl did a great job on setting everything up and making it all so cute! My mom helped me make her yummy sweet potatoes to take... And I'm proud to say, I actually got clay to like sweet potatoes! Clay and I are so grateful for our families and are so excited we were able to see the Welkers this thanksgiving! 

As you can see here, Clay was so helpful when it came to setting the table...

November 17, 2009

... Dyson is the newest member of our family and was an early christmas surprise from Mark and Cheryl. When we brought our gift home clay was so excited he took it out and vacuumed and vacuumed and vacuumed!... and since we have made such a huge mess with moving into and remodeling our new/old house, we are so grateful for our new Dyson! Oh! and the remodeling is now finished (phew!) and I will be posting before and after pictures soon!

HaPpy HaLLoWeEn! HaPpy BiRthDay ToM!

My brother's birthday falls right on October 31st! Lucky him! Thomas and his cute wife Melanie came down from Logan to celebrate his birthday and Halloween at Texas Road House. We hardly ever get to spend time together because Tom and Mel are busy studying at Utah State, and my dad is always out of town working. My dad's birthday is on the 29th so we decided to celebrate both on the 31st. Thomas and my Dad were really good sports when they had to sit on a saddle while everybody sang happy birthday! Happy Birthday Tom! and Happy Birthday to the greatest Dad ever!

Meet The Random Traveler...

long story short

Clay Sipes. Clay is a young man who is riding his bike across America From New York to Seattle to raise money for underprivileged children. He began around Sept.1st and so far has made it all the way from New York to Mark and Cheryl's house in Elk Ridge Utah. Clay and i showed up for dinner at Mark and Cheryls and they had a random little hippie friend that Hayley had picked up on a bike ride from provo. Somehow the random Clay Sipes ended up staying the night at our house. He was very grateful for a bed and he did fix my wireless router so that was a bonus. Early monday morning we donated to his cause and sent him on his way. We also gave the young man a book of mormon. He was very nice and very grateful for everything. We hope he makes it to seattle safely without having to go through too much snow!

Class of '99!!!

Clay's 1OYear reuniOn! clay really didn't want to go at first but once he was there, he enjoyed catching up with old high school friends and eating yummy food and I enjoyed getting to know the class of 99!

I was a little worried... When we first got there Clay just sat all alone, I wondered to myself, was he always a loner like this?
...By the end of the night Clay had a table full of friends and more! I had a lot of fun getting to know all of the great people clay went to school with.

Fight Night!

What is it about this that is so enticing?.. I don't know either. It's a guy thing i guess. But even though the girls aren't really interested in the fights, its still a reason to get together with friends, have a bbq, chat and have fun!

I have one word that describes Chet, ENTERTAINMENT! He brought a whole bag full of huge jaw breakers to share..random? Anyway, I believe the winner of the jaw breaking contest was Kaycee Feild!

For the girls, its just another reason to get together and chat about more important things in life like... All the cute new clothes they just got in at Charlotte Russe!
