Rodeo Cowboys

We took the boys to the rodeo Saturday night. Taysen was excited all day and couldn't wait to go. Each night of the rodeo before that he kept asking to go because you could hear it at our house. Grams got the boys some great cowboy attire including cowboy boots. They looked SO cute! Korver was sick the day of the rodeo so he only went for a while but Taysen stayed the whole time and his favorite part was the mutten bustin. He and Eastyn were ready to get out and ride one right then. Then of course during my favorite part the bull riding Taysen had to go to the bathroom and the boys spotted the glow in the dark swords.


My dad got this HUGE water rocket for Christmas last year and since then the kids have been begging him to launch it. Well since all the kiddos were in town we decided it was time. It took a little trial and error and a lot of pumping to get it launched but it was AWESOME!! The kids loved it!

Birthday cakes

First of all I have to show a picture of the cake I made for Eastyn's birthday. It is on the fourth of July and he had a great party. It was a lot of fun making his robot cake I love trying something new.
The other pictures are from Tim's birthday on June 10th. I made him a pool ball cake and once again it was fun to try something new. I am so grateful for Tim and all he does for us.

On Easter I had the grand idea to wake up early and get ready before the boys got up so as soon as I was out of the shower Korver woke up. We took him downstairs to do his basket and make breakfast. He loved all the treats and started finding the hidden eggs. He soon learned he could throw them against the wall and candy would come out (he loves jelly beans) Soon Taysen woke up and came downstairs carrying eggs and being excited the easter bunny came. He had a great time seeing what the bunny brought him and Korver. He really loved finding all the hidden eggs. Kids really do make holidays a lot funner! After doing easter we went up to the cabin to be with Tim's family for lunch and afternoon conference.

Magic Beans

This year we thought it would be fun to plant some magic Jelly Beans. We planted them the night before easter and then the easter bunny helped them grow into lollipops! Taysen loved it!

Easter Activities

We went to the easter egg hunt at the dinosaur museum. Taysen loves this egg hunt because all the kids get plenty of eggs. Then we went home and made some fun easter sugar cookies.

Easter Eggs

We invited grandpa Judd over for dinner and dyed easter eggs on Friday night. It was a lot of fun. We bought the monster decorating kit so it made for some silly eggs. Korver thought it made a nice ball to throw :)


I just love my silly boys!

Korver's First Haircut

We finally got around to Korver's first haircut March 15. His hair was getting pretty long and I wasn't sure if he would like the Flowbee because he usually screams when I turn it on to do Taysen's, but Dad played ball with him and gave him treats and he was a champ he didn't care at all that I was cutting his hair...I know your all thinking I'm a nerd for using a Flowbee but I must say it is one of the best purchases I have made because Taysen (and now Korver) will actually let me cut their hair without a fight and it isn't messy at all. :)


Taysen had a great time making and decorating heart cookies for valentines.

Ice Skating

I am trying to catch up a little so here it goes..Taysen and I went ice skating with our ward in February. Taysen was so excited to go. It was a lot of fun to go with him other than we both had on too big of skates and I haven't been in forever so it was a little exciting to try to hold up a kiddo and myself. He also enjoyed the hot chocolate at the end and made sure to take his time drinking it. I love that I can do fun things with my little boy!

My Grandmother

My grandmother suffered from Alzheimer's for a long time and a few weeks ago we were told her time was coming to an end. We drove out that day to say goodbye to her and be with my grandpa. She passed away later that night. It has been a whirlwind of emotions. My grandmother was a great lady and we miss her greatly. We are so happy for her to be out of the terrible grips of this disease. Her funeral was a wonderful time to remember the way our grandmother was. It's still a little hard when I think about it. I'm so grateful to know that FAMILIES ARE FOREVER!! One day I will hear her sweet laugh again! Love you forever Grandma Judd!

Snow Fun

These are just some pictures from Taysen helping Tim shovel snow and trying to sled down a tiny hill from shoveling (that didn't work) He was so excited to get his own little shovel. The snow was deep and he loved every minute of it. He played and played and played in the backyard until he finally just got too cold!


Around Christmas on TV they were pushing the whole Snuggie thing like crazy!! And since my son watches TV like crazy he decided that he needed one of his own. I thought about just buying him one of the kid ones but I didn't know if it would even fit him and they seemed simple enough to a little while after Christmas when he wouldn't stop bugging me about it we finally got his snuggie made. He was pretty proud of it and now wants me to make one for EVERYONE! The thing is now he hardly ever uses it..oh well!

Korver's 1st Birthday!

My baby turned ONE! I still can't quite believe it. The last year has flown by and he has been such a fun addition to our family. We celebrated with family and had pizza and cake. We discovered he absolutely loves pizza! He did not care about his presents because he still wanted to eat his pizza. When it was time for cake he barely touched it to take a candy off the top and remove the marshmallows and then he didn't want anything to do with it. I tried to help he and he got mad, but he did want to eat it as long as I fed it to him with a fork. At least he ate enough to get his lips blue with frosting! We love our crazy Mo!
