February 2016

Matt and I had a movie date and went to see The Finest Hours. My sister is awesome and watches the kids pretty regularly so that we can have date nights and we definitely appreciate it!

The next day we went up to the cabin to sled and snowmobile. We had bought an old, but really cheap snowmobile the month before because I was really bummed at not being able to go to the cabin because of my hip since I wouldn't be able to hike up. So when I found a really good deal that was less than what a 2-day rental on a snowmobile we cost we jumped on it. It's been a blast so far, definitely an old snowmobile but it does its job.

It's always pretty up there with all the snow. Matt let me borrow a pair of his sunglasses for the day.


Ashton wasn't feeling well and so he took a nap in the cabin for awhile.


My sister is always reading stories to Olivia and doing whatever else she asks her to do. She can be a little bossy! :)


Olivia loved riding on the snowmobile and never wanted to get off.


Matt took her sledding quite a few times down the big hill by our cabin.


We ended the evening by going to Heber to Dairy Keen for dinner and shakes.


There's this creepy old doll at my aunts house and the kids love to scare people with it, specifically Kaleb so my mom tried pinning him down with the doll but he's just as creeped out by it. She's not actually strangling him he's just over dramatic about everything. :)

The day finally came when Olivia cut her own hair. We were close by and thankfully stopped her after one snip but she gave herself some bangs that are still trying to grow back out a year later. She hasn't attempted to do it again and actually doesn't want her hair cut so hopefully that will be the only time she does that.

Olivia loves riding this carousel in our dentists office after getting her teeth cleaned. She's always asking when she can go to the dentist next.

I helped with a game for the 6th grade Valentine's party and it also happened to be crazy hair day if your class had earned it so Kaleb was sporting a wig and beard for the day.

My dad fell asleep at the cabin for a couple minutes but Ashton felt he had to write him a note telling him that he snore's.

I love all of the pretty sunsets we get.

Ashton was baptized along with his friend Meredith since they're both January birthdays.

February 20, 2016

They've been good friends since we moved into the ward and have fun together.

After we had lunch at our house with soups and chili and it was a special day for Ashton. He's such a tenderhearted kid and is always giving hugs.


This diva had her afternoons where she couldn't stay awake, especially in the car.


The 6th grade always puts on a Shakespeare festival where they act out different Shakespeare plays and it was fun to watch Kaleb. He has a lot of expression in his voice and I was surprised how well all of the kids did with their acting and being expressive. At that age I know I was too shy to act like that. But they have great teachers that really worked hard with them.

It's always crazy when on a February morning you can be outside in the morning (in your pajamas) with no jacket on.

Meanwhile the same day Kaleb and Matt were up on another scout overnighter by Strawberry reservoir in the snow.

February 27, 2016


We have great scout leaders in our ward and every month they do an overnighter somewhere, even in the winter. It's great for boys that age to learn to be responsible since they help plan everything and get so much practice packing!



We were trying to organize the toys in the basement but Matt and the kids were sidetracked with a karaoke machine and had fun dancing instead of cleaning.
