Gardner Village
I took the kids to Gardner Village today to do the witch scavanger hunt. We left this morning and picked grandma Toody up on the way. We all had such a good time. The weather was perfect and it was such a beautiful day to be out and about walking around. Couldn't have asked for a better fall day. I found a cute little hat for little Lily who will be here in 5 weeks (can't hardly believe it). I also went and looked around in the quilt shop. I love that place. I got some great new ideas for more quilts to make. Now I just need the time to make them. Good luck with that.
I love fall. What a great day.

Chillin with the witches

Just a few witches left to find.

Emma loved the ducks. All she wanted to do was stay by the pond and watch them.

Emma: Look at the ducks grandma look look look look

Scavanger hunt complete. Now time to go get the .25 cent chocolate chip cookie from the bakery for finishing it.

Taking a break for a few minutes and waiting for Emma to run across the bridge for the 400th time.

Colton and Madi thought the witch in the outhouse was the funniest one.
Good Bye for now Gardner Village hope to see you soon.

Coltons First Day of First Grade
I admit I am posting this a few weeks after the fact but I still can't believe that I have a 1st grader. He is getting so big right before my eyes. It seems like yesterday that he was just a little baby. Time has just gone by so fast it makes me want to savor every minute I have with my kids before they are all grown up and gone.

He was sooooo excited to go to school his first day that it was hard for me to be sad about it. Thanks Colton for making it easy for me. :) Sweet Boy
Emma just had to get in the picture. She is like Coltons shadow wanting to do everything that she sees her big brother do. Typical little sister. She loves him to death.

Coltons classroom and his desk and tote tray. Look at the grin on that face.
And then it was time for me to leave him there.

Wow It Has Been A While

Wow It Has Been A While

I thought I better get on here and tell my little guy happy late BIRTHDAY. I have been such a slacker this summer. But I am going to do better. So anyway. With more posts in the near future.


We love you.

He had a great birthday. He got to go to the dinosaur musium again and pick a movie to go to with some of his cousins. He chose Avatar The Last Air Bender and now he thinks he IS an air bender. He had an awesome birthday party with all his cousins and some friends. Here are some pictures.

This is Colton playing with some of this birthday presents. His Avatar staff. (one of the favorites)

Playing with his friends and cousins, just having a good time.

And this is my favorite. His new riding gear. He wouldn't take it off. He even wears it to ride his little peddle bike. He has been begging his daddy to take him out on the dirt bike so he can try out his new gear. He also told us he wants his own dirt bike so he can race it. I think Tyler and Grandpa Elkington would be just fine with that. I think it might be kinda fun to watch myself. :)

Happy Birthday My Sweet Little Dare Devil

Activity Days Project

Here are the cute picture frames we are going to make for Activity Days. The girls are going to make these one week then the next week we will be going down town to walk around the temple and have a lesson about temples. While we are there I will take the girls pictures by the temple and they can put their pictures in their new picture frame and give them to their moms for Mothers Day.
So cute I love them.

Today I drove to the school to pick Colton up. I got out of the car and stood on the grass in the front of the school waiting for the kids to start coming out of the kindergarten doors. I had just been standing there for a few minutes when I saw the doors open and the kids started running out to meet their parents. I spotted Colton trudging toward me with his head down looking kinda sad. He finally got to me and I asked him what was wrong and why he looked so sad. He slowly looked up at at me and he was grinning from ear to ear. He whipped out a dandelion from behind his back and said, "Here mom I got this just for you" My heart melted. I took the "flower" and gave him a big hug and kiss and told him how much I loved it. We started walking back to the car together and he looks up and says to me.
Well thats what spring is all about ya know
I wouldn't trade being a mom for anything.
Happy Easter

Easter was a lot of fun this year. Colton was so excited because Grandpa Larry came on Friday and picked him up so he could drive out with them and spend the night were they were all going to be camping. Then we got to wake up early Saturday morning and drive out to were Tylers family was all camping for the weekend. We visited and listed to Confrence, rode dirt bikes and horses, had an egg hunt for the kids and just had lots of fun. We even drove over to the sand dunes and watched the crazy people for a little while.

That night we drove home and went to bed in anticipation for the EASTER BUNNY. Colton woke up first. He ran around the house looking for his easter basket. He finally found it in the bathroom in the tub. He also helped Emma find her basket. They both had so much fun playing with their new toys.

Roger and Kristy called and invited us to have easter breakfast with them. Then we came home and watched Confrence. I think Easter is a great day to have Confrence. When Confrence was over we loaded up to head to Grandpa and Grandma Hendricksons house for more Easter fun. More egg hunts and then a yummy dinner.

Emma just had fun palying with all the babies in Grandmas new toy room. After dinner we all watched the second session of Confrence together. What a great Easter weekend. :)
