FYI... Too far out in the middle of nowhere is only 1.5 miles from the highway...

Merry Christmas! OOPS!! I mean Happy Halloween!!!

The girls are Elves and Lewis is Santa. It is so cute!! Even Mojito got in on the fun and dressed up as a mini Santa.


Yes, I am behind on blogging. Yes, there is a TON to tell all of you. Yes, it seems like I am being a slacker.
Seriously. I know that is a giant but. There is a really good reason why I have not been blogging. I am pregnant!! NOT!!!! HaHa!!!! As if!!!
Okay the real reason is that we have moved into this big, wonderful new house. I could not have asked for more with this house. The inside is wonderful. The rooms are big. We have a huge yard with swings, room to run, a new zip line that we just put in, and much much more BUT this house does have a big problem. Something that almost makes me want to move. Almost, but not quite. We can't get Comcast here. Which means that we use Qwest for our Internet access. It is inexpensive and fine BUT (another huge but) it is so dang slow! It takes me 10 minutes to download one picture onto the blog and then half of the time it won't finish. It is horrible! They have a faster service but they will not bring it to use because we live to far in the middle of nowhere. Great. So then we tried to go with Digis which is a wireless network that uses radio waves or something like that. Guess what? Our trees in the backyard block the signal from getting to the house so that is out too. Freaking' Internet. So I am trying my best to do my blog but until I figure out a better way the posting are going to be few and far between. Sorry :(
So here is my first catch up for this month. At the beginning of the month my kids got a long weekend for UEA. It is a Utah thing. It is supposed to be Utah Education something but it is really so all the dads can go hunting. Anyway, we took the kids out for the weekend for a little staycation. We drove the 45 minutes up to Midway and Heber for Friday and Saturday. We stayed at the Homestead Resort. We got a cabin with 3 bedrooms and a kitchen. It was mucho chilly up there compared to here in the valley so the kids all brought their coats.

Here they are in the sled that sits in front of the lobby.

Stay tuned for more about UEA, Haley's birthday, Italy, our new house, Halloween and more!

I am going on a trip tomorrow
Don't feel sad and blue,

I know that you will miss me,
I will miss you too,

I be back in 6 more days
with stories for all of you.

Who wants to see my cute kids?

If you want to see a sneak peek of my cute kids go here:

Shannon took the cutest shots of my little kiddos. This was our second session with her and as always she was fabulous. She has much more patience with my kids during pictures then I do! If you know my kids then you know that at least one of the 4 of them do not cooperate when it is time to get things done. I literally had to walk away because they were making me frustrated, but she was a calm cucumber. I highly recommend her for all of your picture needs!

P.S. Just ignore the pictures with me in them. She is a great photographer, but she can't perform miracles.
