Bryson's update

Things have been busy around here the past month and I haven't had time to blog. I have decided to do an update for each of the kids over the next few days. Bryson has lost his two bottom teeth in the month of November.

He lost his first tooth November 9th and his second one on November 23rd. He was so excited for the tooth fairy to come.

(this picture is with the second tooth really loose and being pushed down by his tongue, about 2 hours later the tooth fell out. )
Also both of his permanent teeth are already starting to come in.
We got some snow on November and Bryson was outside playing before school started.

Carley had a dance recital and at the end Santa came so he got to go sit on Santa's lap.

Last In-N-Out finally opened in Orem the middle of the month and we finally went today for lunch. Bryson loves the hamburgers.

Bryson loves school and is doing so well. He loves to read and is on reading level M which is 3rd grade reading level. He also loves to write. He writes us notes all the time telling us he loves us. But we have also get some notes telling us that we don't love him because we sent him to time out. It makes us laugh. Bryson is such a fun kid and a great joy in our family.

Halloween 2009

My sister-in-law and her kids surprised us and came to visit us on Friday before heading back to Colorado on Saturday. We were all able to go to my cousins Halloween party.

Saturday morning we carved pumpkins.

Bryson was darth vader.

Carley was Cinderella

Madalyn was a butterfly

Grandma was able to come and have dinner with us and go trick-or-treating.

The kids had a blast trick-or-treating and they will be on a sugar high for the next week, or bugging me to have

San Diego

Bryson had fall break last week and we decided to meet my parents in San Diego and have a vacation. We got in late one night so the next day we took it easy and walked along the beach. We saw sea lions and seals. The kids loved chasing the seagulls. I love the beach and the ocean. (Be prepared for lots of pics)


One of the highlights of the trip for the kids was to go to Legoland. It was amazing to see all the stuff made out of legos. Bryson had so much fun

San Diego Temple

We stayed close to the temple and Eric and I were able to go do a session in the morning while my parents watched the kids and then later we took everybody. It is so beautiful and the blue skies made it perfect.


What would be a trip to California without going in the water at the beach. Maddy had been to the beach in June, but she slept the whole time and didn't get in the water so this time we got her in the water before she took a nap. She wasn't sure of the water or the sand.

She would rather snuggle with Dad

Bryson loves the water

Carley cried for the first 10 minutes while we tried to make her go into the water. Finally she went in and we couldn't get her out. She loved to find seashells and run away from the waves

Bryson also loved to go into the water and jump over the waves

Not the sunniest day at the beach, but it was still warm and the ocean is always fun to play in
