Cutest Boys Ever!!

My babies are getting so big. I have decided to grow their hair out so it's longer, but my family keeps harassing me to cut it. I actually really love them long. Kudter's hair is pin straight, and Kache's has a little bit of curl to it. These two are the best of friends, they enjoy each other so much. They are busy this time of year with uncle Matt's basketball games and they've been ice fishing with dad every week. With it being winter, we have been going to the movies a bunch and they currently love Hotel for Dogs.

In November, Brandon and I took a trip to Vegas with our friends Matt and Hayli. The trip was a four day excursion and we had so much fun. The food, shows, and company was a blast. These are just fun photos that I was able to take of the trip. Soooo much fun. I absolutely love the picture of Matt and Brandon, they are two peas in a pod.

Yellowstone 2008

This weekend we took a family road trip to West Yellowstone. I was really worried that we would not see any wildlife because it was so late in the year, but Brandon reassured me that there would be plenty to see. Boy was he right, we actually saw more this trip than I have ever seen! It was amazing, and the best part was the weather. The leaves were all changing throughout the park and it was snowing, it was just absolutely beautiful. We spend all day Friday going through the park. Later that evening we went to our hotel and went swimming in an indoor heated pool. The kids loved that, they're always up for a good swim. Afterward we ate at the Three Bears Lodge, wouldn't recommend it! Then went back to the hotel and watched Monsters Inc. with the kids. It snowed the hole time we were there, so it was fun to see Kudter and Kache infatuated with the snowfall. They did enjoy seeing all the wildlife too. We were all able to see a moose, tons of buffalo, bull and cow elk, bald eagles, cyotes, and two grizzly bears! Yeah!! Ubove, is Brandon with Kache and Kudter infront of a heard of cow elk and their babies, we were able to get pretty close to them.

A Bit of Me

This is my new favorite photo. It's of Kache and I at Matt's surprise birthday party. Anyway, I guess I should tell you a bit about myself. I was born and raised in Pocatello and I don't think that we'd ever move from here! In fact, I think my biggest pet-peeve is when people say how dull and boring Pocatello is. I am thankful that I live in a city where I feel save at night and safe raising my kids. Don't get me wrong, I know that it has its crime and what not, but not too much! My point is that if people hate Pocatello so bad they need to just go find a place that makes them happy!

I am the oldest in my family, I have two younger brothers, Dakota 18 and Trevor 16. They are two out of the four most important men in my life! I can't begin to tell them how proud I am of them and how much I love them. Anyway, life was and is really good. I graduated from Pocatello High School, and so will all of my kids, Hello...tradition never dies! :) Currently I hold a few odd jobs. I work as a cheer, dance, and tumbling coach at the Pocatello Rec Center, I love this job, it allows me to work with children ages 2-13 a few hours a week doing what I love to do! Then I coach cheer at Century... love that too! I often tell people that I have 22 teenage girls, and two boys. I recently took a job of picking up children from school and dropping them off for a local daycare here in town. It has been a lot of fun, I get to take my kids to play at the day care for a couple hours a day while I do it, so that is a big bonus! Last but not least I sell Mary Kay, which I really love, I actually don't know what I do more, buy or sell! :)

I am a sucker for Diet Pepsi and Big League Chew (the bubble gum) its gotta be original though! Mm mm...O yea, and Sour Patch Watermelons! I love music so much! My favorite individual singers are Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, and Stevie Nicks. Groups I love are the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and of course The Who! I love going to concerts, but Brandon's not a huge fan, so a lot of the time I go with my mom, she enjoys them as much as I do! Next year I made Brandon promise to take me to the Riverfest in Montana, it's a weekend long concert put on by different musicians from the 60's and 70's.

I love spending time with my family and friends. Brandon and my mom often give me a hard time about always doing things. I am one of those people who can't sit home and stay. I hate it! I am constantly on the go, and my kids go with me. We go to the zoo, pool, movies, hiking, visiting friends, four Wheeling, camping, boating, anything to get us out of the house. Now that winter is here it gets a bit harder to do things outside, but we manage with the help of Century sports and also ISU.

I am at a time in my life where I am happy. I eventually want more kids, but for the time being I am satisfied. I am thankful for a fun, loving, and hard working husband. I have so many wonderful friends that we have a blast with. Most important, I have a supporting family that I get to share everyday life with!

Simply Sweet

I refer to these two as momma's little monsters. In this picture they could steal your heart, but don't let them fool ya! :) We often call Kudter our little Denis the menace because even if he's not looking for trouble it finds him. Kache still isn't talking much, but I think it is a tactic he uses to get away with all he does.

GO, FIGHT, ROAR!!!!!!!

This is Century High School's current cheer team, and a huge part of mine and my families lives. This will be my sixth year of coaching Century's cheerleaders, and for the most part I love every minute of it. My family puts in a lot of hours with these girls in fundraising, camps, games, practices, traveling, and competitions. Brandon is the team chef and choffer and is usually teased and called the cheer daddy by the girls. This year I ordered them zebra print uniforms and they are adorable! I really enjoy them, and I never ever run out of a babysitters to call!!!
