Thanksgiving in Utah....

We headed north to Provo Utah for Thanksgiving this year. We spent it with the Sefcik's and had a good time visiting with everyone. Brett and i (with kids) stayed at my cousin Jen and Rod's house, the kids had a blast and loved that they had friends right there when they woke up.
While we were there my cousin Julie took some family photo's for us, she is amazing and so talented behind the camera. Thank Ju.
We hope we can make it back up there next thanksgiving or hopefully sooner. Love ya guys!

Carnival Birthday Party!!!

Finally i have found some time to blog again!
This year i decided to combine Peyton and Brody's birthday party's, there is a 3 month gap between them but i figured it was close enough to get away with it. And i'm so glad i did, as it was a lot of work!!!
We rented a bounce house, snow cone machine and a spin art machine. We set everything up out in the back yard and let the kids loose.

I got the cupcake idea off of picky palate, they turned out way cute and were so easy!

I attempted to make a ball toss.

Here the kids are testing out the spin art machine, i would have never thought to rent this but a friend told me about it and the kids really liked it. I would definitely get it again.

OK these body boppers were so fun, it was pretty funny to watch the kids play with them. And surprisingly no injuries.

Brody Carson Karren!!

This little 3 year old makes me laugh everyday. I can't believe how witty and smart he is at such a young age. He remembers everything he hears and everyone he meets. Brody is very independent and doesn't like help with anything. He can usually figure most things out by himself. He may be a smarty but also loves to call everyone and their dog a poo-poo head and stupid, and that's just if he likes you!

Happy Birthday Dude.

More pics of his carnival party to come!

Does it seem like EVERYONE is...


NO i am not pregnant!!!
But it seems like everyone around me is or has just had a baby. I'm kinda feeling out of the loop on this but i don't think our time has come to dive into baby #3. I really want another one or two but i'm not sure if i can handle being out numbered. And there is always that 50/50 chance it's going to be another boy....!

If you have 3 or more kiddos tell me the pros and cons. Not that i need convincing but it's always good to know the other side before you make the leap.

Happy Halloween...

Peyton's pre-school had a Halloween party and performed a few songs for the parents. It was so cute. Then they went trick or treating to a few of the neighbors homes and showed off their costumes. Brody got right into too, he is ready to be a big kid like his brother.

My 2 super hero's!

Batman strutting his stuff!

We carved pumpkins this year, if you know me this is a big step. I hate the clean up part so i usually resort to mr.potatoe head pieces. But i decide that my kids need the experience. I remember carving pumpkins as a kid every year, my mom would buy us all our own pumpkins ans we loved it.

I love these 2 super hero's!
They loved trick or treating and filled their bags right to the top.

Look at those muscles!

SUPERMAN "say cheese"
