Birthday Boy!

Noah turned 3 years old on Sunday. I can't believe that my baby is 3! Time goes way too fast and I can't believe what a big boy he is already. We started the day out with the traditional birthday pancakes

then we opened some presents. Noah got a big boy bike so he can learn to ride with his brothers when it warms up outside!

After church we had dinner and then had all our family (both sides=little chaotic) come over for cake and ice cream! It was a lot of fun and Noah got lots of fun presents. We love you Noah and are so glad you are a part of our family. Thanks for always keeping us on our toes!

Christmas Time

So I can't believe Christmas is over already! It seems like so much work and then it is gone before you have time to enjoy it! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and is recovering from all the craziness. We had a fun Christmas this year. On the 23rd we went to temple square which was beautiful as always but it was soooo cold! We rode trax downtown and the boys had more fun on "the train" then they did seeing the lights but hey it's tradition right?!? Here is all my boys on trax and at Temple Square.

Here is the boys on Christmas eve in their new PJ's

Then on Christmas day after opening presents we went to my parents and got to talk to Chris which was great. He is doing so good and loving every minute of his mission in Alaska! He did say that it is FREEZING!!! But he loves it! After my parents we went to Clints parents and the boys had the time of their lives playing out on the snowmobiles-they are definitely their fathers children! I think Nik and his cousins Audrey & Kyler would've stayed out all night if we let them!

Had to have a picture of my little angels making snow angels!

And Noah eating the snow!

All in all it was a great Christmas although I will definitely finish my shopping a lot earlier next year! Thanks to all our family and friends who made this Christmas so much fun! We love you!

Best Husband EVER!!

So I just want to take a minute to give a shout out to my wonderful husband! He is the best husband, father, & man that I know! I am so lucky that he chose me and that I get to spend eternity with him! Last week Clint was out of town the first half of the week and by the time he got back I was a wreck (kudos to you moms who's husbands work out of town a lot I don't know how you do it!) But on Friday morning when I woke up Clint told me Camie & Jeff were coming over that afternoon to stay with the boys overnight! He took me to Salt Lake where we walked around at the Gateway and started a little Chritmas shopping! Then we went to our hotel which overlooked the Gallivan Center Ice Rink and walked around there a whileIt was so nice to just relax and be with the man of my dreams for a while uniterrupted! A BIG Thanks to Camie & Jeff we owe you guys!! and Thanks Clint for being the Best! I love you!!

So I can't believe it is Christmas time! We took the boys to Thanksgiving Point on Monday to see Santa. We had to wait in a pretty long line but they had fun seeing him. Except for Noah, he didn't want anything to do with Santa! But they gave us a picture and it actually turned out pretty good! They also had two reindeer outside which the boys thought was awesome! Nate really wanted to know why neither of them had a red nose though.
So we've barely started Christmas shopping and I am dreading it! Although we do keep telling the boys that all they are getting for Christmas is a new window! (Nik broke the window in their bedroom the other day-bad timing on his part!) But I don't think they would be too happy with that! Nate wants a Utah Raptor(he's obsessed with dinosaurs) and Nik wants a Monster Truck (even though Clint just got them each one a week ago) and who knows what Noah wants probably just something he doesn't have to share with his brothers!
I hope everyone else is more ready for Christmas than I am! Merry Merry Christmas!

i LOVE ryan shupe & the rubberband!!!

So on Saturday night Clint and I took the boys to the Ryan Shupe & the Rubberband Christmas Concert! We had so much fun. I wish I would've brought the camera, but like most fun things we do I forgot it! My mom & dad came which was nice for me and Clint because the boys don't want anything to do with us when grandma & grandpa are around! If you haven't heard Ryan Shupe you should definitely check them out at http://www.shupe.net/ (yes I am slightly obsessed with them) I love their music and they put on the best show ever! We took the boys to see them this summer when they played at Thanksgiving Point and it was so fun sitting outside rocking out, and ever since then all the boys(especially my little Noah) have been obsessed! We have to listen to "The Corndog Song" (which now is the eggnog song) or "The Superman Song" every time we get in the car! If you ever have a chance to see them in concert GO! So much fun! Thanks Mom & Dad for coming with us and putting up with boys climbing all over you the whole time!!

So it finally snowed last week and my boys were SO excited! They all love the snow! Nik & Nate were really worried that it would melt before they got home from pre-school and had a chance to play in it, but luckily it was cold that day and it stuck around for a while.

Here is Nate & Nik all bundled up and ready to get playing!

They just can't get enough of the snow! Nate really wanted to go to Grandpa Jepperson's and ride snowmobiles!

Here is our snowman that we built! I think it looks more like a monkey but oh well! Nik & Nate were pretty mad that I didn't have any carrots for the nose but they found a golf ball and decided that would work just fine!

Here is Noah with our 'Monkey' Snowman!

Noah was taking a nap when Nik & Nate went out to play and they had already come inside when he got up so he went out all by himself and I bet he played in the snow for at least 2 hours! He had a blast! Especially throwing snow at mom!

Can you believe it's November?

October flew by so fast!
Especially the last couple of weeks!
So Nik had a crazy month he lost both bottom front teeth and he fell off the kitchen chair and split his head open and had to get a staple in it! Fun Stuff!
Isn't he cute without teeth?

Halloween was pretty fun we went to Gardner Village on Wednesday to see all the witches, the boys had a lot of fun! Then on Thursday Nik & Nate had their Halloween program and carnival at school. It was also Clint's birthday so he went with us and then we came home and made him a cake while he went to work for a while. When he came home we carved pumpkins with the kids and then Camie came over to watch the boys so we could go out to dinner! Thanks Camie!! Then on Friday Noah's class had their little carnival so I took Nik & Noah to that in the morning. Nate had been up all night puking so luckily Grandma Jepperson came to sit with him so I could take the other two. Thanks Grandma! Then that afternoon we went to the grandparents houses and a trunk or treat at Doug Smith Autoplex then we came home and tried to go trick or treating but poor Nate was still not feeling good so after 3 houses he was done so him and Noah went home to hand out candy with dad while Nik and I went around the neighborhood. So I guess at least Nik had a good Halloween!
Here we are at Gardner Village on our witch hunt!
Noah didn't want to get too close to the witches!
Here's Nik & Nate at their Halloween program! Are they not the cutest superheroes ever!!
The boys were pretty proud of all of the pumpkins that we carved!
Here is the 'Happy' Birthday Boy!! I love you sweetie!!
Here we are ready to go trick or treating! Clint wouldn't get dressed up with me but oh well I had fun being a 'loser' all by myself!

Another pic of my super cute superheroes!!
How cute is my little lion!
Noah did not like to have the head on because the hair would get in his face-but he was so cute!

All in all it was a fun Halloween I just wish Nate would've felt better. I tried to tell him that you aren't supposed to get sick until after you eat all the candy but oh well there is always next year!

Conference Weekend in Moab

So over conference weekend we went Jeeping in Moab. The boys were so excited-it is their very favorite place and they love the jeep! But Clint and all 3 boys decided to get sick while we were there (I was the only member of the family that didn't puke in Moab) so it ended up being kind of a disaster but we did have some fun moments too!
Here are the boys with some suckers from Sam! We were just starting out on the Poison Spider trail!

Here is Clint taking the Jeep across The Golden Crack

Going over some rocks on the same trail that day

On Saturday we went on the Behind the Rocks trail which was really fun other than Clint was still pretty sick after being up all night, but he still felt good enough to get us seriously stuck in the sand! Sam even had a pretty tough time pulling us out! Clint was having fun jumping the jeep over some sand hills-luckily she held up and is still in one piece!

Also Nik lost his very first tooth in Moab on Saturday! I'm pretty sure he swallowed it because he didn't notice it was gone until I told him it was! But now he has a cute little hole which is going to get bigger because the other bottom tooth next to it is loose!
Hopefully the next Moab trip will be filled with a lot less sickness but the boys still said they had fun and can't wait for the next Jeep Adventure!

Our First Family Camping Trip

So on Sept 4-7 we decided to try out our new tent we had bought a while back and take all the boys camping to Bryce Canyon & Calf Creek Falls. I was pretty scared about how it would turn out and Clint and I both thought there was no way we would last all 4 days...But it actually turned out really fun! We spent the first 2 nights in Bryce Canyon and the last night at Calf Creek Falls. Nik & Nate are such awesome hikers (They have previously hiked up to Silver Lake & Pittsburgh Lake up American Fork Canyon) Noah doesn't do too well hiking, he much prefers to be in the backpack (Poor Clint) But all in all it was a really good time! Here are a few pics, I am trying to put together a slideshow but who knows if I can figure that out!
