This year we took the larriettes to Thriller at the Tuachan. I was so much fun. We loaded up on a bus and drove down, went to the Olive Garden to eat. It took forever to eat and so when we got to the show we had to run to go get our tickets. We just made it in time for the show. The weather was pretty nice to start with but then it got cold...and started to rain. Not really hard, it was kinda cool, it added to the atmosphere I guess!

Here I am with a zombie. For some reason I look super excited!
Here is a picture of the show. Really talented dancers.

At the end with some of the cast

What a great night!

Front Porch

My summer porch. I love my bench. I made it out of a twin headboard. It was pretty cute when the flowers were in bloom. As you can see they are NOT in bloom anymore. Quite dead, actually. Im no green thumb:(

So I think my fall porch looks much better!

We love our little porch. Its so nice to sit outside in the evenings and watch the kids play.

And I really love how my black pumpkin turned out. I just spray painted in black and traced a big B on it and put gold thumb tacks in it.

I've been wanting to make a front porch post for awhile now. So, I finally did and I love it. It was super easy and only took about and hour. Now I can hang cute wreaths and signs:)

Notice the witch on the bench.... My grandma made it, and its really cute but sometimes when I pull up at night it looks like a small creepy child. My neighbor told me to take it down, she kept thinking it was Paislee out there chillin alone, lol!

Before & After:)

old, dingy. in need of some lovin:)
** AFTER**
Fresh, white, new and FABULOUS!!:)

I LOVE how my table turned out. It only took one day, and was pretty easy. Probably the hardest thing was sanding. (so I had Kirk do most of it) A few coats of white paint on the chairs, and dark stain on the top. It makes me want to re-do all my kitchen stuff :)

Summer 2011

Here is where we spent a huge part of our summer, the swingset. Both kids could sit out there and swing for hours.

At the creek

We love summer. I am sad that it is turning into fall. It is so nice to have the kids be able to go out side.

Better late than never....

4th of July 2011. Next to Christmas the 4th is my favorite holiday. I love seeing people I havent seen for awhile. I love what a big deal it is in Kanab. I love that the whole town comes to the parade then up to the park. And its warm:)

Heres Paislee waiting for the parade to start. About two days before we figured out we could do pig tails!! Yay! Finally:)

Kirk had to work at 6pm which was a bummer, we missed watching the fire works with him. But we had a really good day!!

So Excited!!!

Im very happy to announce that starting in september I will be opening my own studio! I have been dreaming about doing this for awhile now and it all kinda fell into place this year....

Im so excited to share my love of dance. Im excited to take the girls to competition. Some of my most happy memories of elementary & middle school is going to competition. Everyone would do the solo competition. We would all help each other get ready and cheer for each other. Dont remember who won, dont really think we cared. We supported each other and had a great time. Then the next day was team competition. Win or lose we were together. It was so much fun! I want to bring that back to Kanab.

I think being on a team can teach you so much... responsibility, being a gracious winner (and loser) how to work together. I really can't wait! Please, please, please if you know anyone 4 and old who would like to be involved, let me know!!! Word of mouth is the best advertising!! Wahooo!!! I can't wait!:):):)

Whats Been Going On....

Its been a while since I have posted anything.... Im such a blog slacker!! Well we havent really been doing anything super exciting. Just the regular summer stuff: pool, park, barbeque's. Good times! Heres some recent pics. Here is my new project. New (really old, actually) dining set. My grandma and I went to Panguitch to an antique store that was going out of business. I got this gem for $75. It was originally $400. Wow-I love a good deal, I couldnt pass it up. Did we need a new table and chairs? No. Was Kirk mad that I bought it. Yes. But cant you just see the possibilities?? Im thinking stain the top dark, paint the legs and chairs white then antique them? We'll see! I'll defiantly post the after pics:)

Cooper and his cousin Paige, so cute! They love each other so much!!

We have done alot of fishing this summer. Daddy and Coop love it, me- not so much! lol

My sis Melissa and our grandpas at her graduation.

EaStEr & GrAdUaTiOn!!!

A few pics of the kids in their Easter outfits:) I cannot for the life of me get a picture of Paislee looking at the camera, oh well!

And Cooper had preschool graduation. It was so cute. He is soooo shy so I was worried he wouldnt go up on stage and do the program but he was a champ! It was so cute, kids this age are hilarious!!

All the girls of the class were taking a picture so he thought he should join in! So cute!!

He starts Monday and is sad to leave his old job because he really loved it and loved all the people he worked with but is glad to be home more and not have to drive all the time. All I can say is ReLiEf!!!! We hated to have him gone. Horray..... we can live together full time again haha. I wont have to take the trash across the street;) We are super excited!!!

And on another note, I may be crazy. I think I might take on another drill team. What is wrong with me? lol
