Snow Day!!

Last night we had a huge snow storm. It was so
amazing to watch. I had to go to work so we got
to drive in it. A little scary but we got there in
one piece.

This is what we woke up to in the morning. School
was cancelled. That is a first for us. The kids woke
us up. They were so excited to look out the window
and see white eveywhere.

They were out there for over 2hrs.

Troy and I felt like little kids too. Growing up in
Az we are not use to this. This is our first actually
living in the cold. We love it!

I can't image what its like to have these storms
for days at a time. Its like we have to put our lives
on hold till its over.

These were the only pictures we got for Halloween.
As you can see I had to take this one. Tatum was being

Mason was just too cute to pass up. He called himself

We didn't have a chance to get a picture of the
other kids. They were off playing and we didn't
see them the whole night.

First day of School!

Yeah! The kids are back in school. Kaden is in 4th,
Jared is in 2nd, and Maegan started Kindergarden.
They are loving it. Usually the first week is pretty laid
back so we'll see how it goes once they start homework.

It's pretty quiet only having 2 at home. But I am
really enjoying it. I love shopping with only Tatum and
Mason. They definitley miss their brother and sisters
though. It's really hard for me to get them to play. Mason
just follows me around the house. On Monday Tatum is
starting preschool. A couple ladies in my ward wanted to
start one and I am so excited. Tatum will love feeling like
she is going to school. She wanted to go with Maegan to

We are excited that the new school year has started!
Life seems so much easier with routines. I have never been a
routine person. I think I am really liking it.

Tournment Results

Sorry it took so long for the update, but I am sad to say for
me it didn't turn out so good. We played horrible. Kimmie's
ward were the champions. They played really good. But it was
really fun and tonight we have our first games for co-ed volleyball.
At first Kimmie and I were really bummed because they were
going to schedule all the games on saturdays. Troy and John work
every saturday. Fortunatly we got enough people to tell the stk
activies leader that we want to play Fri and Sat. nights,so there is
only 1 saturday they won't play. We are so excited.

Volleyball Results

All of you that know my sister Kimmie knows how competitive she is when it
comes to volleyball. So I wanted to give you a little update on the results of
our game this past Saturday. Tyler 2nd ward(Laura) beat Bullard ward(Kimmie)
in 2 games. We play the best out of 3. It was so much fun to play and any one
of us could of won. As it stands now we are in 1st place and they are in 2nd.
Tournments are this saturday and if everything goes like we think it will we
will play each other again for the final championship game. I love you Kimmie,
Good Luck!

Info Update

We're still here. I do have some pictures coming but they are not on my camera.
Things are going good. We are really enjoying the area we live in and the kids love
their school. They have made so many friends. Kaden will ride her bike to the park
with her friends or their house. I would have never let her do that in phoenix. Jared
has boys in his class that are also in his primary class. The ward is wonderful. We have
a lot of new friends. The women are playing volleyball and Troy's calling is he is the
Basketball coach. I have loved playing and getting some exercise. Our ward and Kimberly's
ward are tied for 1st. We are bothundefeated and we play each other in a couple weeks. We'll see who comes out on top in theplayoffs. It's been really fun but competetive. I enjoy playing like that. Game on Kimmie.!!!Ha!Ha! Our work schedules are still the same. We are trying
to find different things to do on our days off since we don't have a lot of time any other days. The weather hasn't been bad at all. We have only had a couple days where it has been hot and
can feel a little humidity. The highest has been 90 degrees. i will take that any day over dry hot
100 degree Arizona weather. Well I better go I got crying kids. We miss everyone so much!

Tatum's Birthday!

Happy 3rd Birthday Tatum!

Tatum has grown up so much. She is definitely my
fireball. She keeps me on all ten toes and all ten fingers.

Although Tatum can be very very challenging, she
is a really smart girl and has a mind of her own.
We love her so much.

I am so excited because Tatum is fully potty trained.
4 down 1 to go. It was a lot easier than I thought.
When I first startedto try and put her on the toilet
she was vey stubborn. Now a lot of the time she will
go all by herself.

10 things Tatum loves:
-flip flops(even if its freezing outside, or at home in her pj's)
-Baby dolls
-Dora the Explorer
-Max and Dax(Kimmie and Janell's dogs)
-Taking a bath
-Going to Nursery(finally after about a year)
-Hot dogs
-Going to Grandma's

Hopefully there will be no terrible 3's
(we'll cross our fingers)
