Halloween


BOO!!!! Hehehe
We had a ward Halloween party that was super fun. The committee did games from Minute to Win It. There was one game that nobody won but me. That's right!! I am AWESOME and very humble. :)
Carson and McKenna were Woody and Jessie. It was funny because there was another Woody and Jessie and it was a couple. Then there was a little Buzz and a baby Woody. Super cute.



Can you tell what Cameron and I were for Halloween? If you were told don't give it away.
(Brandi:) Hint: it goes along with Toy Story!

McKenna's first hair cut!!!

I have been too chicken to get McKenna's hair cut for two years now. Okay not really two years because her hair hasn't been this long for two years. Her hair started growing really fast the last 6 months and everybody is always commenting on how long and pretty it is. So I finally got the courage to have a friend of mine cut her hair (just a skiff off really). Thanks Ashley! I forgot my camera and she was kind enough to let me use her camera and then email me the pictures. So here are a few pictures of the event.
I don't think she knows what is happening.


She held so still, it was amazing.

No she did not cut off that much it is just her smoothing it out. I am not ready for that big of a cut yet!
That is how much she cut off. I told you just a skiff.


I love this picture. She is like 'What is going on?"

Carson loves babies and they are always kind enough to let my kids hold her.

Can you guess what Carson is saying?

So Carson has this word that he says, or tries to say, and it is dang funny. I am going to do a little give away to the one who can figure out what he is saying. Brandi and Bobi you can't guess because you heard him say it the other day. Good luck!!!

This is what McKenna was doing when I just went into the kids room. Silly kids.

Two months later.....

Okay it has been awhile since I have posted. Here are some pictures of the last few months. There aren't a ton because I always for get my camera but it is better than nothing. These are in no particular order.


McKenna's first side pony tail. She is so cute here. Right now she is throwing a fit on the ground because I won't hold her while I update the blog.

They are adorable but they are hard to get on camera because they don't hold still long enough. This was the best one out of the 6 I took.


Our camper that we got for free. Cameron put a lot of work into it and we love it.
The inside of the camper with my family.

Just because he is cute. Look at those blue eyes.

View from the back and from the front. They are too cute.

Carson is being a great big brother and helping McKenna eat her food.
videoThis is a video of Carson going down the slide at Rigby Lake.
videoThis video is so dang funny. It is of Carson sleeping in the car and his head bobbing all over the place. Cameron thinks I am rude but it was hilarious so I had to video it. I ended up getting in the back and holding his head up.

Student teaching

Pink eye+ upper respiratory infection+ throwing up= McKenna

On the bright side I got my student teaching placement last week (finally) and I will be at Falls Valley in Idaho falls in the 3rd grade. Way better that in Pocy:) I must admit I am terrified but it will be good...it will be good....it will be good. If I keep saying that will it be true?

Challenge

Today at church we had a General Authority speak to us, Elder Chambers is his name. Well he extended a challenge to us that I am really going to do my best. The challenge was to read the Book of Mormon in three (3) months. Yeah, I don't know if I can do it but I will most defiantly try. I am pretty excited about this challenge and I think it came about at the perfect time in my life.
Well here's to the next three months. Wish me luck.
PS If any of you want to do this as well feel free. :)

OH NO!!!

So this morning the kids have been playing together and I am trying to teach them that when one hurts the other they don't come crying to me about it they say, 'Don't do that, that hurts' or 'that's not nice.' and then go on there merry little way playing again. Something like that.
Well Carson came crying to me (which happens more than McKenna coming to me crying) and he said 'Baby touched me.' What do I say to that? I just thought 'oh great! It's already started' and we weren't even in a car. That's where my siblings and I always said that.

Oh well, such is life. It was really funny and I just thought I would share. Here are a few pictures of them just now. Sorry they are blurry....they were moving around and I don't have the greatest camera.

D+

I FINALLY passed. I have this class where I had to take a test and pass it with a 90%, it is 60 questions which means that I had to get 54 out of 60. Ouch!!! I had several times to take it and I finally passed..... on my 12th try. I got a D+ on the test in the end but I passed. If I didn't pass I would have had to drop my class and that would have thrown everything off. I just got my placement for student teaching this fall. All I know is that it is local, which I was worried about, but it is local. I don't have to move my family to Vegas or Salt Lake. However, local can be anywhere from Pocatello to Ashton to Mud Lake. I will find out somewhere between April and June where it is at specifically. Wish me luck with not having to go to Pocatello.
D+ YEAH!!!!!

VALENTINES

Okay this isn't going to be the normal mushy valentines post. I have had some thoughts today at church and all day after that I have wanted to share. In relief society our lesson was on Jesus Christ and one of the things we talked about was the war in Heaven and what happened between Satan and Jesus. Well as we all know our Father in Heaven went with Jesus' plan. This plan allows us to have our agency to choose what we want to do.
Now, I kind of got a glimpse into how Satan's plan could be appealing. Jesus knew that he would be suffering in the Garden for us, whether or not we chose to accept the Atonement. But he still did it! Well if I knew that and it was up to me I think that Satan's plan sounds better.... That might sound bad and I am so grateful for my agency but if you think about it, don't we all want our children to do what is right and be the best person they can be? I can understand the wanting to 'force' them to do what is right.
I know that Christ's plan was by far the best and right choice but, do you get where my thoughts are?
I think that the ultimate Valentines was and still is our Savior Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for the chance I have to make mistakes and become better for it. I need to work on letting my children choose for themselves. Maybe having this epiphany early in my motherhood will help me in the years to come. I am so grateful for Him suffering for my sins even when he knew there was a possibility that it might be in vain.

Sorry this is a little different but they are my thoughts at the close of this Day of love.

P.S. I do love my husband and best friend sooooooo much. He is amazing, a hard worker and very patient with me when I am not so much with him!!!!!!
I love you Cameron!

GRANDAMA OSBORNE

I AM ENJOYING MY GRANDMA'S SPOILS. SHE IS CLEANING OUT HER HOUSE AND WE....HER GRANDCHILDREN ARE GETTING HER 'COLLECTIONS' FROM OVER THE YEARS. SO I DECIDED TO TAKE PICTURES OF WHAT I RECEIVED SO FAR. AND I SAY SO FAR BECAUSE IT IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING OVER.

SO EXCITED TO GET THESE. I WENT TO HER HOUSE TO LOOK AT HER PORCELAIN DOLLS AND I GOT STARTED LOOKING IN SOME OTHER BOXES AND I SAW THESE CANISTERS. WOOT WOOT!! I THINK THAT SHE WAS HAPPY TO GIVE THEM TO ME INSTEAD OF SOMEONE SHE DIDN'T KNOW.

YARN ANYBODY?

THIS IS A GARBAGE BAG FULL AND THAT IS NOT EVEN A DROP IN THE BUCKET.
NO.....I DON'T KNOW HOW TO DO ANYTHING WITH THIS BUT I AM PUTTING IT TO GOOD USE. I AM THE COMPASSIONATE SERVICE LEADER AND I AM GOING TO RECRUIT SOME LADIES IN THE WARD AND HAVE THEM MAKE SOME BOOTIES, HATS, BLANKETS....WHATEVER THEY WANT. YEA FOR TALENTED LADIES IN THE WARD.

OKAY THIS IS MY FAVORITE PART. I COLLECT PORCELAIN DOLLS AND MY GRANDMA LET ME CHOSE ONE TO ADD TO MY COLLECTION. (HAHA BRANDI I GOT TO CHOSE BEFORE YOU:) SO HERE IS WHAT I CAME HOME WITH.

THE DOLL IN THE MIDDLE IS THE DOLL THAT I WENT THERE FOR. MY GREAT-GRANDMA MADE THE CLOTHS AND A FRIEND OF MY GRANDMA'S PAINTED THE DOLL. MY GRANDPA BUD GAVE MY GRANDMA THE DOLL FOR HER BIRTHDAY (I THINK) SEVERAL YEARS AGO.
THE LITTLE DOLL WITH THE PIG TAILS WAS MY MOM'S AND THE LITTLE GREEN DOLL ON HER LEGS IS THE DOLLS, DOLL. DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?

MY AUNT JUDY MADE THIS DOLL. I MEAN SHE MADE THE WHOLE THING. THE DRESS THE DOLL EVERYTHING. IT IS BEAUTIFUL. AND GOES NICELY WITH MY DOLL COLLECTION.

LOVE YOU GRANDMA!!!!!!

Carson's start into manhood!

We went down to Pleasant Grove on Friday for Emily's wedding and on the way down Carson had to go pee. This is the first trip where we had to worry about him peeing in his underwear and we weren't that close to a gas station so we pulled over and let him go. I made Cameron help him. I think that he was a little confused. Carson not Cameron:)

I got a picture of his little bum peeking through Cameron's legs but I didn't know if I would get into trouble if I put it on the blog so.....yeah! Anyways I thought I would share this giant milestone with you all!

Here is McKenna 'Baby' waiting for brother to do his business.

Carson's Ka-Chow birthday party!

We had a lot of fun with Carson's party. We had a little thing for him on Thursday, his birthday. My parents came up and we had brownies and opened up a few presents. Thanks G&G Maughan for coming up and his very first Buzz toy. He was really excited. And thanks G&G Gurr for the gifts he loved them. Here are a bunch of videos of the night. We did more video that we did pictures so bear with us.

This is his cake for the party on Saturday... HUGE thanks to Brandi for helping me, and when I say helping me I mean doing it for me. I did the blue outline on the road. Right above Carson's name you will see finger prints. That was Carson trying to get 'Ka-Chow' off of the cake. He didn't understand that it was supposed to be on there for a bit. Funny kid.


This one is really long. If you don't want to watch it all you at least have to watch the last minute. It is so funny. If you listen really close you can hear him saying 'Oh my gosh!' I must say that a lot. He was so cute.
video
I will have to take a picture of his room and put it on the blog so you can see the finished product.
We had a great day. Thanks everyone for coming.
We love Carson and don't know what we would do without him. He is so energetic and he keeps us on our feet all day long.

Carson got some Flarp and Jake put it on his face. It was funny! Big dork. Who needs panty hose to rob a bank now days just use Flarp.


This is Dillon at the end of the party after all the food he ate.....

Okay he has a bag of candy in his shirt. This is what he will probably look like in 20 years from know. He wishes!


I am adding pictures from the past several months of the kids that will catch me up in the blogging world. No explanations just fun pictures!





Potty training! Whatever works. He is now officially potty trained. Of course he still has accidents but he doesn't wear diapers anymore, not even for bed. YEA CARSON!!!

silly boy!

silly girl

My attempt to take Christmas pictures of the kids. This is the best one I got.

Okay so there were a few explanations but not much.
