I just had to share the exciting news!!! My brother and his wife are expecting again! She is so good at keeping secrets and is already 20 weeks along, so she is due the end of March!! They don't find out what they are having so it will be a surprise to all of us! They have a 9 year old and a 6 year old, both girls. I am so excited that we are going to be close to them when the little one arrives!!! YAY!!!!!!

So the last two Saturdays I haven't seen Braxton or Russell for most of the day. Since we are living in Idaho, Russell's brothers go riding every weekend and Russell and Braxton have been going with them and loving it. Russell's brothers have these side by side machines called Razor's and Rhinos and they have been going to the mountains while the weather has been nice. It's all braxton talks about and Russell and his brothers are amazed that Braxton isn't scared... Apparently it is a good thing that I am not there... Every time they get home Braxton comes running in saying "Mom we went really fast and we went up some really big mountains!!! It scares me, but he is enjoying having his dad around to do things with, so its good for them, plus it gives me a much needed break!!! I only have two pictures of them before they left, but I thought they were so funny. Braxton had to wear his hat backward's like his dad!!


Halloween was a lot of fun this year.. We started by carving our pumpkins on Wednesday night and me not being the very crafty one was pretty proud of our pumpkins!!! Ha Ha! Thanks to templates online we were able to come up with some faces!! I can't find the video, but when i cut open the pumpkins to carve them Braxton had a fit!! It was to messy for him... I took his shirt off so he could dig in, and he stuck his hand in, pulled out one seed and decided that was enough for him so he wouldn't touch it again!! So lucky me got to clean out both pumpkins by myself while Russell was putting together our computer desk and braxton was looking at me like I was crazy!! Thursday night we went to the church halloween party, and Friday we went to my Mom's house, and both grandparents houses. After that we went over to Doug and Beckies for a halloween party and saw all of Russell's family. Russell took Braxton trick or treating for a little while and then we went home. It's so much fun to be home close to our families, we love it!! We didn't stay very long because Bridger was so ready for bed!! Oh and by the way let me explain Bridger was suppose to be a skunk but he threw a major fit the night of our ward party and bawled like crazy so we ended up switching him to be a lion. Thanks to Tiffany who let us borrow the costume or he wouldn't have had one!!! He was much happier in the lion costume, though I'm not sure why!!!! So at the ward party he was a lion, but he was okay in the skunk costume for Halloween so he that's why you will see him in two different costumes! Braxton was spiderman and loved every minute of it!!


Hey everyone I'm back in the blogging world!!! We finally got our computer set up and and I am so far behind that I just figured I would start from this point and move forward instead of going clear back through summer! Just an update.... We moved to Idaho October 1th and are living in Rigby. We have gotten pretty much moved in, but still have a lot of organizing to do and we still don't have our T.V. set up = (!!! So needless to say I'm missing way to many of my shows!!!), but at the same time it has been pretty nice, to be able to just focus on getting stuff done and playing with the kids... Braxton starting preschool last week and is loving it. He has it Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 8:15-10:45, which is perfect and I love that I can take him and pick him up.. Another good note, we got multiple offers on our house last week on the same day and after a little negotiating accepted an offer pretty close to what we were asking. We are very excited and hope that everything goes through with the inspection and appraisal, If so we will be closing on November 20th and then closing on our house here in Rigby. Bridger also celebrated his 1st birthday the 28th and we had a family party for him on the 26th. It was so fun to be able to have lots of family over, but he wasn't quite sure what to think of everyone!! Here are some pictures of him opening presents and his birthday cake... By the way he hated the cake and didn't want to even touch it.. He would barely touch the cake, so I grabbed his hand and smashed it into the cake and he bawled!!! It was too funny! Oh and by the way he still does have his helmet = ( We went back to Salt Lake on October 21st hoping we would be done but he has to have it until at least December 16th that's when we will go back in and meet with the doctor's...
