McKenzie's Birthday

McKenzie had her birthday party on Friday night and she had 4 friends sleep over. She had a lot of fun. She has been planning this party for awhile. I think that I survived the party also.

Deer Hunting

Ryan got his deer. After spending 3 tiring days in Northern Utah seeing nothing. Kary and Ryan went up to the North slope of the Uintah Mountains and shot 2 deer the first day. He got a 4 point and a small 2x1. He was pretty excited about the 4 point. This is the biggest he has ever shot. He thinks that I am going to let him mount it and hang it on the wall in the living room. He is going to be very disappointed when I take it down. Mckenzie was pretty worried that he was going to still have them hanging in the tree in the backyard for her birthday. But he got them out in time.

Just A Little More.....

Well Brynn and Melissa are telling me that I need to update my blog. I really haven't done anything to exciting in the last couple weeks. So I will try not to bore you.

Ryan went on the Elk hunt and came home with nothing. I Can't say that I'm to upset about that. He had a lot of fun. It was cold and snowing the entire time. He said that at times he couldn't see 5 feet in front of him. I don't know how that could be fun but what do I know. He leaves again on Friday for the Deer hunt. This time he will be gone a week and I can usually count on him getting something. Darn it...

On Friday my Mom and a couple of my sisters and I decided we would go and pick some grapes and make grape juice for our food storage. My Mom has a friend that she works at the temple with that has A LOT of grapes and let us have some. I'm not sure if we knew what we were getting ourselves into. We went and got us a good amount of grapes and took them to my moms house to start the canning process. About 12 hours and 70 bottles later we finished. Apparently we didn't think that we had enough work for ourselves so we made our own. What a mess. But we did have fun doing it.

Samantha is getting ready for her Halloween program at school. It sounds like its going to be fun. A lot of work is going into it. Mckenzie is still counting down the days until her birthday. she is trying very hard to make me tell her what she is getting. She will flip out when she finds out. Dylan is up to the same old stuff. SKATE! SKATE! SKATE!

A little while ago Ryan and I were watching a few videos on youtube and we found one that was pretty scary. McKenzie was standing behind us watching with us and when she saw this she fell back and started crying. I don't want to sound mean but it was pretty funny. So I thought I would share the video with you. Needless to say she wont stand behind us anymore when we are watching videos.

A little about us

Well I am getting on the band wagon and trying this blogging thing. I really don't know what I am doing so I just hope that it's right. I don't know if I am even interesting enough to keep one going but I will try. I can always talk about the kids they will keep this going.

This is Ryan's favorite time of year. When the leaves start to change and the temperature drops then you know that Ryan is getting ready for the hunts. He is going on the Elk hunt this weekend with my Dad and brothers, Kary and Kamron. And then they will take off a couple weeks after that for the deer hunt. They look forward to this all year long. While I am at home praying that they don't get anything. I really don't like the meat. I guess if I had a choice I would rather him get an elk.

The kids are all in school this year. Samantha is in 6Th grade and she is working really hard to get straight A's this year. She is also in her 2ND year of orchestra and plays the violin. She is really enjoying that. McKenzie is in 3rd grade and right now all she can think about is her birthday that is coming up at the end of the month. I think that she has been planning her party since August. And then there is Dylan. He is in 1st grade and really working on reading right now. But when he is not at school all he can think about is skateboarding. He would skate all day if he could. As soon as I figure this whole think out I will put some pictures on. I didn't think the day would ever come that I would have all 3 kids in school at the same time. So when they started school I decided that I would change my schedule and start working days. I am still doing reservations for jetBlue and I guess I'm enjoying it. I am done with work by 1:oo and then I get a couple hours to catch up on things before the kids get home.
