Father-in-law to the RESCUE!!!

Last night I had one of those moments, you know the kind of moment when you wish your dad was just down the hall. Luckily my father-in-law George just lives a few blocks away.

Karson stayed up in Provo last night because of work and school. That meant that I was home alone. I am a spook as it is but it doesn't help that our house is over a hundred years old and has been infested with mice (yes, disgusting I know) the past few days. I was doing okay until it came time to sleep. I just told myself to fall asleep fast. Sometime around 2 I woke up to a big noise. The kind of noise that scares the you know what right out of you. I couldn't move nor did I want to until I heard it again. I made a quick move and grabbed my phone and called my sleeping husband. I tried to explain to him what was going on inbetween sobs. I think he could tell I was pretty dang scared and hurried and called his dad to come and check on me. In the mean time I grab my lamp and tried in an attempt to make myself hidden (as if I possibly thought that laying as flat as I could would make me invisable!) under a blanket. I think George was at my house in 30 seconds time.

In my mind it was some scary, probably up to no good fella or a big hairy creature with huge teeth. Come to find out... it was just the WIND! How pathetic am I! Needless to say I ended up sleeping on my in-laws couch last night!

Who gets up at 2 in the morning to chase away wind!?! (Thanks George!) It just made me realize how greatful I am for our families. I know that if anything was to happen to us, our families would be there in no time. It doesn't matter if its a call for help to fix a tire or a call to chase away the elements, they are always there for us! We are so lucky and so blessed.

the muzzle loader

This weekend we went up Mayfield canyon to do a little bit of hunting. I drew out for the muzzle loader this year and was really hoping to get my first deer. Unfortunately all the bucks were MIA! We did however see 50 million doe of course. I think my brother in law Court and my dad got the only two male deer on the whole mountain! It was still so much fun. I love to camp, especially this time of year with all the leaves changing. It is always nice to be up and away and spend time with my dad! The boys were all so nice to let me tag along. Maybe next year I'll get a big one!

We Be Jammin'

Today, I learned how to make Jam! I went over and helped Connie make what seems like a lifetime supply of jam! We made some excellent raspberry jam, peach jam, raspberry-peach jam, and some strawberry-peach jam. I had fun and actually liked, yup you heard me, LIKED, making jam! Until next year....

and apparently Karson likes jammin' too!

getting our golf game on!

The boys in our family have taken up a liking to golf this summer and want to go all the time. Kaydee and I wanted to see what it was all about so when the boys wanted to go golfing last night, we tagged along! I don't think Kar's was all that thrilled with the idea at first. On the way over to the golf course he kept telling me that I had to take it seriously and that I couldn't mess around. I think Kaydee and I proved him wrong by showing off our awesome skills! It was seriously a lot more fun than I thought it would be. It took a couple of holes to warm up but than I turned into a female version of Tiger Woods! Karson told me he was pretty impressed but when I asked if I could tag along more often he told me probably not! HOW RUDE! Well thanks for letting us come along anyways!


Oh and Kaydee and Launey owe us milk shakes! woot woot!

what we have been up too!

First off, I have to tell this little man happy happy birthday! He just turned 3 today! He is a little stud as you can tell and is so happy that its his birthday today! Wish we could be with you to party hard in St.George little buddy!

A few weekends ago a bunch of our friends went camping before school and the craziness of life begins. It was so much fun. We went up Mayfield canyon and just relaxed, ate some great food, and fished. We honestly caught about 100 fish between the eight of us that were there. It was so much fun.

I guess the question is am I ready for some football! If any of you know my husband than you know that our life is sports, sports, sports! He loves football and has been counting down till the season begins. He gets so excited this time of year. Last year our FHE consisted of my memorizing each players position on the field... offense and defense. This is a serious time for our family! So this is probably what we will be up to for the next couple of months... just in case your wondering!
