Grandparents in town!

What a crazy life! since our move to Provo we have been busy and having fun. Nigel and Denise came to visit and we were able to do lots of great activities. They spoiled us and we made some wonderful memories!

We did our usual visit to Kerry (Sister Rogers) on Temple Square and felt blessed to see her happy and doing so well. We got to hear 'music and the spoken word' but were put in a special room for kids :)

The Zoo was a big highlight for us all. We got to see the baby Elephant and Girafe as well as the Gorillas (my faves) and the Tiger. The weather could not have been more perfect! Denise and Nigel bought us season passes and we are thrilled!!

Papa (Grandpa Nigel) made sure the kids did it all! They got to go on the carousel, the train, and have ice cream...they were in heaven!

Each family got to have a day with the grandparents to do what they wanted. We picked the childrens museum (Discovery Gateway)because I have been wanting to take the kids for ages. They absolutely LOVED it and we will be going back soon because We got passes once again for Christmas..thanks Nigel!

This was my favorite picture of them all because Aurora kept us all entertained with her stinkin cute personality. she will miss her English Grandparents!

So we are pretty much settled in our new home while we rent out our old one. It all feels quite bitter sweet. We feel this is where we need to be for now and are excited for the adventure. Thanks to all the friends and family who have helped us in anyway.

Happy Halloweeeeeeen

Elias's first day of pre-school!

My neighbor just up the street runs a pre-school (which is awesome because it saves me driving around) and Elias had his first day today. My son insisted on wearing his massive backpack and coat but he sure loved it as I knew he would. He is such a good natured boy and loves all kinds of play. They had tons of fun things to do and play with so he is excited to go back. The little girl I take care of named Brooklyn decided to try it out too. It means mommy gets a bit of a break in the mornings :) I think pre-school knocked him out ...This was him at nap time. Yes, he is still taking naps ( I am spoiled ) when I went in to check on him he was wearing this hat. Dont ask me why! Love that sleepy face...

I Love you Elias!!!!

Cozettes first day of first grade!

My little poser. She is definately not afraid of the camera! She was thrilled to start first grade and we think she will love her teacher, Mrs Allen who everyone in the neighborhood rants and raves about. I am a touch sad that she will be gone so many hours of the day but also a touch glad because her and her brother seem to fight too much about the silliest things. :)

A wonderful California vacation!

We finally had our first official family vacation...yay! We decided It was time the kids saw Disneyland (before Cozy grows out of the 'princess' stage although I never did ;) The kids did great on the flight but we had to entertain Aurora the whole flight which became a bit of a chalenge. definately wont be going on any extended flight travel anytime soon.

We started our vacation off at the beach. It was the kids fist time in the ocean (they're a bit deprived, I know) Of course, they LOVED it and we all got lots of sun! Poor Chris is blistered and even mentioned how bad it was in his testimony today at church. :)

We stayed at my aunt Jeanette's house and got the royal treatment. this is us before going to church with them on the Sunday.

Sea World

Disneyland! Disneyland! Disneyland!

My best friend Devon and her little family met up with us in Disneyland and showed us the ropes. We had a ball!!
