Say Cheese!

What cute nieces and nephews we have!

Some of us got a little tired walking around in the snow so they decided to go on a little ride while searching for a perfect Christmas tree!

Dang look at those Muscles! Even with only one hand!

And this is the beauty we got this year! I didnt realize how tiny it was until we stood it up with everyone else's, it looked like a charlie brown tree! But now that it is up and lookin good in our little condo it is perfect!
Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you all have a wonderful holiday!

This last weekend we had such a great time. We headed to Star Valley to visit the fam. Passing through Preston we decided to stop and say hi to the Despains. We thought it would be fun to have the cutest girls come tag along with us for the weekend. We had so much fun! My pour mother in-law spent the whole Saturday keeping us happy. She is so great! Ty also got a lot done. Saturday morning he went duck hunting and shot 5 ducks. While we were in the house all day doing crafts, Ty was outside making these spiders for holloween that I have been wanting for a while now. His dad made one for his mom last year and ever since then I have wanted one. I didn't even have to ask. He is such a great guy! We sure had a great weekend.

Hunting Weekend!

Dang my husband is good lookin!

While they were pulling the elk down the mountain, they stumbled across moose sheds. They were together as a pair. That doesnt happen very often. That is what is on top of the elk just in case you were wondering.

While I was in Iowa this last weekend visiting the hansen's, Ty decided to go up to Star Valley and go with his brother to get his elk. They shot their elk but not realizing it until it was to late, the area that they shot it was some pretty steep country. They new that I was going to be a chore to get that elk out. They ended up having to go back the next morning to get it out because they wouldn't of been able to before dark. This time they brought help along. What they had to is hike down there and completely cut the meat off the bones and put it in sacks and pack it out in there back packs. Ty's pack I believe was 56 pounds, Darnell's was 64 and there friend Ryan's was 69. They sure had a lot of meat on there backs. I'm glad that my husband had such a great time. He always has a good time when he gets to hang out with his older brother. I'm excited to be able to have some of that meat cause we sure like elk in our house.

Grand Canyon Trip!

A couple weekends ago we went on our summer vacation. Some might not think this is much of a vacation, hiking your guts out for 2 days and sweating like pigs. But we loved it! About five years ago I lived here on the North end of the Grand Canyon being a waitress to all the tourists. It was probably the best thing I could of done in my single life. While I was there I hiked the 25 mile trail from the north rim to the south rim in one day and ever since then I have wanted to do it again. My Husband was all for it! I have no clue how the heck I did it in one day. We did it camping in the bottom for a night and we stilled died! I must be fat and old. This pictue is taken the morning right before we started down the canyon. Oh man if only we new what we were getting ourselves into! Just kidding it was well worth it. We had a great time!

These trees were every where down in the canyon. Ty thought that they were just awesome! He called them the banana trees. They look like they had bananas growing at the bottom of them. Every time he saw one he would say.. Hey guys look a banana tree! I probably heard that saying about a million times by the time the hike was over. It got real old real fast.
This was Ribbon Falls. Its was this waterfall that fell down right on the edge of this huge rock. It doesnt look like there is much water falling from it, but when you get to the top and are standing under it, it hits you pretty hard. This was probably the high light of the hike. We drenched and got to cool off.

This is our friends Adam and Alisha that went with us. Ty and Adam have been friends since they have been about 3 years old. They even share the same Birthday. We had such a good time with them. We couldn't of ask for a better couple to do this with. Thanks GuysThis was the night before the hike. We camped out in the woods so that we didn't have to pay to stay in a hotel. I took everyone out to a place that we used to go to when I lived here. It's called Buck Point. Its awesome for watching to sunset. It over looks so much land covered in trees. It was so pretty.

First time boating of the season!

This is Kynzie's dad on the air chair. He was so fun to watch cause he was so good. He would just ride it like it was nothing. He even did a back flip on it. It was Awesome!

Ty was having to much fun. He could of been there all night and been happy.
Well this me trying to attempt to get up, for some stickin reason I couldn't. Kinda frustrating.

My friend Kynzie and her family let Ty and I go along with them boating on friday night. We were pretty excited sense we hadn't been once this whole summer. She has a super cool family that were really nice to let us come a long. Ty got to try the air chair. He said that he had always wanted to see and try one. Well this was his moment. He said it was harder than he thought but he got up on it his first try.

Rodeo night Fun!

This was kinda funny. After the wild cow milking, there was this one cow that no matter what, they couldn't get it out of the arena. This was pretty funny, the cow laid down and wouldn't move, the guys were trying get it up and to roll over,but it wouldn't budge.

I was proud of myself for taking this picture. I thought it was a pretty cool one.

What a cute Boy!

Ty actually did this event. They tied a ribbon on a bull's horns and who ever could get it off won 300 bones. We were hoping that we would get it but we didn't. Better luck next time.

Happy Birthday Dru! We went out to the depains for Dru's Birthday. Betsy made a sweet volcano cake. She is such a good mom! Mom and Dad came out and we went to the Preston Bull Fananza. Ty sure enjoyed it because thats the only reason why he likes to go to rodeo's is to see the bull riding. We sure had a fun night.
