My Cousin Ashley and I did the Aflac Women's Run on November 14th, we had so much fun, I love running in events they are so motivating.

This is Ash and I before the Race.
And here we are with our Finisher Medals after the race.
My Uncle and Aunt came to watch us and my Uncle had us take a picture with the Elf advertising for the 12ks of Christmas Run.

Tannon and Barrett being big helpers!

The kids got a little bored, so Daddy to the rescue and doing it all on his own, what would we do with out Daddy!

My Happy kids playing, I just love seeing them playing and laughing together, I think that makes every Mom happy to see!

Daddy and the kids with the finished Pumpkin.

And me with my kids.

On our way back home we stopped at the Anderson and gave the pumpkin to them and we got to put a candle in and the kids got to see it lit up. They were pretty proud of their pumpkin.

Trunk or Treat

Saturday the day before Halloween, we went to my In laws Wards Trunk or Treat, since we weren't going Trick or Treating on Sunday we thought it would be fun for the kids, plus it was a lot of fun!

The kids hanging out at Papas Trunk waiting for it to start.
They had games for the kids. Barrett even played the games but for some reason I didn't get a picture of him playing!
We saw one of my friends Marci there with her new baby, they were a family Mobsters, it was super cute!
Grandpa and Grandma Anderson with Krew, Tannon and Barrett.
My Happy Boy!
Uncle Max with Barrett.

After the Trunk or Treat, I walked around my Parents neighborhood with Tannon cause they were passing out there candy on Saturday not Sunday. Tannon came home with so much candy, I probably gained like 5 lbs the week after Halloween:)

5 year Anniversary

David and I had our 5 year Anniversary October 28th, I can not believe it has been 5 years already, man does time fly. Davids Parents came out to watch the kids and we went to Dillons at Scorpion Bay for dinner, we both had never been there, so it was nice to try something new and the food was pretty good too. After we went to the movies and saw Inception, I had seen the movie and I loved it and thought I would take David, plus I heard it was better the second time. We had a good evening together. It is always nice to spend time together, we don't really get to do much just us since we moved so far from babysitters.

Here is a few pics from the restaurant.

I just want to say how lucky I am to be married to such an awesome husband and dad. He works so hard for our family and I appreciate everything he does. He has been so busy with school and we hardly get to see him much, but when he has free time he always makes time for me and time to play with the kids. It has also been a huge adjustment for me to not be so close to family and not having him home and he has put up with me and listening to all my venting. I love him so much!

Neighborhood Halloween Carnival

My Parents neighborhood had a Halloween Carnival the Wednesday before Halloween and we thought it would be fun for the kids if we went, so we made a trip to Mesa when Tannon got out of school that day. It was nice cause it was my cousin Ashleys birthday that day and the whole family got together for dinner at a restaurant before the Carnival.

Me and Ash at the Restaurant, we are super close so it was nice to be in town for her birthday dinner, we also went hiking that morning for her birthday, it kinda a tradition for us to hiking on each others birthdays.

And here is my pretty Cowgirl and my cute monkey all ready for the Halloween Carnival.
Barrett wasn't to hot about his costume at first but he got over it after awhile.

Me and my not so happy Cowgirl, but I still think she is a cutie in her costume.
Playing games at the Carnival.

We had a good evening and it was fun for the kids and its always nice to see family, seeing we live not so close anymore.

I have a 4 year old!!

I am going to start updating my blog so stay tuned but first things first I can not believe I have a 4 year old. Tannon's birthday was October 14th and she asked to have a purple butterfly party, so I worked hard to put that together for her. And it is so sad to say, actually it makes me mad to even think about it, but, I have no pictures of her 4 year birthday. Don't get me wrong I took tonz of pictures, its just that when I put my memory card into the computer to download the pictures, it said my card could not be read, and when I put it back in my camera it said the same thing, so I lost all my pictures. Anyways, so for her actual birthday she had to bring a birthday snack to share to school and I made butterfly sugar cookies and I did purple royal icing on them, they turned out pretty cute and it just happened to be purple day at school so I got Tannon a purple butterfly shirt to wear to school, she had a blast at school with all her friends and for her birthday dinner she picked Red Robin, so thats where we went . And then Friday the day after her b-day we had to go into Mesa for her 4 year old check-up so we decided to have a family birthday party that evening, and let me just say she did awesome at her doctor apt. she had to get 6 shots and she did not cry or get teary eyed one bit, David and I were so proud of her. So for her birthday party I got the Wilton butterfly cake pan and decorated it with purple icing using my star tip, so yes it took forever to decorate but it was worth it cause she loved it and then my mom got purple balloons and we put them everywhere, Tannon requested pizza for her birthday party dinner, so thats what her Daddy suprised her with. She got lots of fun things for her birthday and a purple unicorn pillow that she had been wanting, and kitchen with tonz of play food, barbies, and lots of Barbie clothes and then David, Barrett and I got her a purple sweater dresses, 2 purple long sleeve shirts, purple purse filled with lipgloss and other purse goodies and the purple ugg boots. She for sure got spoiled like crazy, but she deserves it she is such a good girl and David and I love her so much, she is so fun to be with, she is like my little best friend and we do everything together. David and I are so blessed to have her as a daughter and we love her so much! I love you Princess and I am so glad you had a great birthday and again I'm sorry I have no pictures and such a long post but I had to go into detail for her birthday, cause my blog is kinda my little journal too, so enjoy!

David's White Coat Ceremony

October 1st was Davids White Coat Ceremony and Davids parent and I were able to go, its a pretty neat Ceremony they have for all the soon to be health care professionals. The White Coat Ceremony is a rite of passage for students, it signifies the students initiation into the clinical phase of education and toward their career. The White Coat placed on each future health care provider is not just a lab coat, it is a cloak of caring, compassion and service. So it was pretty neat experience for davids parents and I to watch David get his white coat.

All the Dental students in Davids class.

David gave us a little tour of the school, this is his station in the SIM clinic.

David has been working so hard in school and I am so proud of him.

Every year my side of the family plans a camping trip right around my Dads birthday, so we headed to Forest Lakes the last weekend in July. We look forward to our once a year camping trip, since thats the only camping trip we get each year! This year it did rain alot so it did put a damper on the trip, but we still made the most of it.

Riding the quad with Papa.

The kids favorite thing to do was ride the quads, so they were always finding someone to take them on a ride!
While the boys went out shooting the girls and kids took a drive to Black Canyon Lake.
Watching the people fish, but then after a bit we decided to let the kids stick their feet in the water, they had a blast!
I was surprised they even wanted to touch the water cause the water was so cold.
My happy boy!

We had a good time, I always like being with the family! We did have to leave a day earlier then planned seeing our tent got flooded from rain, but until next year!

Yes I have been a total slacker with the whole blog thing but I did move and we just got internet on Monday, thats a good excuse, right?? Well anyways now for some major catch up!

So back in July my friend Katie and I took our kids to the Young Chef Academy to take a cooking class, we thought it would be a fun summer activity since preschool, dance and swim were over! Well the kids loved it and they had a good time together.

The kids trying out what they made. They got to make teddy bear biscuits and homemade strawberry jam!

Courtney, Colton and Tannon getting ready to get started, you can tell they look a little nervous.

It was a neat place, I suggest you try it out, cause the kids loved it!
