A couple weeks ago we headed up to Cedar City for a quick one-nighter. Mason's parents just finished landscaping the backyard of their house there and they wanted Mason's help putting together their new playground. Mason & his Dad finished putting it together not a moment too soon, because a big storm rolled in that night and we woke up to a few inches of snow. Cooper had been hoping for snow, so he was super excited! Cooper & Dane had a great time playing in the snow and building a couple of snowmen with Daddy. It was a great little trip!

May The Force Be With You

A few months ago we were at the Duff's cabin and Cooper watched one of the old Star Wars movies on VHS with Mason. Cooper has been completely obsessed ever since, he insisted on having a Star Wars costume this year and has been telling everyone he talks to that he will be having a Star Wars birthday party, the boy knows what he wants! Cooper's obsession has also rubbed off on Dane, so this year we had a couple of Jedi Masters in our house for Halloween, and there was nothing I could do about it. Cooper and Dane are such fun, crazy boys, I love it!

This couple was so cute.
The wife posed with the boys and had her husband take a couple of pictures.

Halloween is so fun with kids!

Stu Miller's "Pumpkin Patch"

We brought the boys to Stu Miller's "pumpkin patch" yesterday. Well, really it's a dirt lot covered in hay and 32 dollar pumpkins and fun rides for the kids, it's Vegas's version of a pumpkin patch. The boys had a blast on the rides then we headed down the street to Smith's grocery store where we bought 4 pumpkins for a lot less than what it cost to buy 1 at Stu Miller's. 

They had that thing spinning so fast we were worried they would lose their lunch.

Before they went on their first ride they were seriously beating each other up, super grumpy, then after the ride they were magically full of brotherly love.

It was a fun Day!

Miles For Better Smiles

Yesterday Mason ran the "Miles For Better Smiles 5k" at Floyd Lamb State Park. I think that Mason finished in 4th place overall, way to go Mason! It wasn't a very big race, but it was really fun and they had tons of refreshments and a great lunch afterwards!

Some of Mason's friends from school

Cooper  & Dane were pretty happy with the shirts and treats they came home with.

While the guys were at the Priesthood session of General Conference on Saturday a bunch of the dental school wives came over for a potluck at our house, it was a lot of fun! 

The kids had a blast playing together!

Cooper Loves Preschool

Cooper started Preschool on Tuesday, and he was so excited, it couldn't come soon enough for him! He has been asking me for weeks when school would start, he was very excited (as you can see by his open mouth in all of the pictures). He had a great first day, and was very happy to go back today, Cooper is going to have a great year!

This picture is from this morning. 

Bandaid and a Hug

Dane is finally getting his second set of molars, of them anyway. He has been pointing to his cheek and telling us it hurt, Mason looked in his mouth and saw the tooth cutting through his gums.  

 Dane has been very moody, but it's nothing that a bandaid from Dad and lots of hugs can't fix.
