Temple Square

 Last tuesday we went to Temple Square to see the lights.  The weather has been pretty amazing so I figured we better go before there is snow because then we usually end up not going.  We ate dinner at Cheesecake Factory in City Creek and then walked around the Temple grounds and went in the visitor center and saw the movie they show on the tour of the Saviour's birth.  This year we have tried talking a lot more to the kids about what Christmas is actually about.  Tage understands, not sure Cohen has any idea what Christmas even is yet.  Anyways, we love this time of year and have lots of fun things coming up!  So grateful for the birth of Jesus Christ and for what it means to me.

 This year we had Thanksgiving with my family.  We have always gone to St. George every year since we have been married so it was nice to stay home and relax this year!  We started off the day doing our first 5k with the family.  We decided this was going to be a yearly thing it was so much fun.  We went running on a trail by Mike and Megan's house and then went back to their house to eat breakfast together afterwards.  Tage rode his bike and Mike pushed Cohen is the stroller and Mike and Tage won first place. 
 The weather was beautiful!  Hopefully it is this warm next time we have our 5k.  
 We all went home to get ready for Thanksgiving dinner and then headed back to my parents house.  Dinner was so good and we had such a fun and relaxing day.  We all have so much to be Thankful for. I am so thankful for our amazing families that we get to live so close to.

TJ and I both had the whole weekend off after Thanksgiving.  We did some shopping, went to the temple, saw Twilight, went to Chuck E Cheese, and ate out...pretty much every meal.  We had an awesome weekend off work and all spending time together.  Can't wait for Christmas now!


 We went sledding a few times when we got snow a couple weeks ago and had a lot of fun.  Tage loves sledding and is a wild maniac on a sled.  He stands up and goes down 90 miles an hour.  Cohen is funny about the snow.  He thinks if anything ever get wet he needs to take it off.  So when it snows he takes off all his clothes because he doesn't  like to be wet.  I guess he would rather freeze to death then have snow on is jacket.  The first day we had snow he went up to his room and came down in his swim suit and pretty much wore it all day. Anyone who know Cohen knows that everything is a huge fight, so I figured instead of fighting about him wearing clothes all day long(which is a daily fight at our house) that I would let him wear his swimming suit.  I thought he would get cold and want clothes back on, but he never did all day long.  He is such a funny kid.
Last weekend we went to Scheels for the first time and the boys had a blast.  They have amazing fudge, and an awesome carousel and all kinds of cool things to look at.  It is the ultimate guys store and the boys loved it!

October/ Halloween/ Fall

 Where to begin?  I am like 6 weeks behind on this thing!  We have had such a fun and busy fall and Thanksgiving season.  I October we went on a drive to Mueller Park in Bountiful and went on a beautiful hike one sunday afternoon.  The colors up there were amazing!  I couldn't believe how gorgeous it was, it looked like it came straight out of a book.

 The last weekend of October we went to St. George with the Allen's for Thriller weekend.  They have a tradition they go to see the play Thriller once a year around Halloween.  It is super fun and is always a fun weekend.  We had Allen family pictures while we were down there that turned out super cute!
 We took the kids to jumping jacks.  They love it.  This is probably one of the first times Cohen has actually played there and not been afraid. 
 On sunday afternoon Cindy had a Halloween party for the kids.  It was super cute.  They decorated pumpkins, and played Halloween games, and had a monster dance.  They all got to dress up in their costumes and had a blast.

Tage had 2 Halloween programs for school that were hilarious.  We also had a Halloween party with all the kids friends that ended up being a blast!  On Halloween we went trick or treating with Erin and Greg and Ellie.  We had such a busy October, it was full of lots of fun but I was glad to see it come to and end!

Family Night

Tuesday, TJ and Brindy came home and we had a lot of fun.  Brindy and I made a super good treats and then we went to the park.  The kids played for awhile and then they started running laps on the track at the park.  Of course that turned into a race, a race which Brindy,Tage and I won....TJ and Cohen lost.  Probably because TJ was holding Cohen while running haha.  We love tuesday night fun!

Train Ride to City Creek

We randomly decided to ride the train to City Creek on saturday after I got off work.  Brindy had never been on the Frontrunner so we thought it would be fun to ride it down.  We had a lot of fun picking out something from H and M and eating ice cream and pumpkin cheesecake!

Sunday Thanksgiving Dinner

On Sunday, we went to TJ's grandmas house for Thanksgiving dinner.  They go to Arizona in the winter so they usually have a dinner before they go to celebrate with all of us that live here.  The kids had so much fun playing in the leaves in their backyard with Jossie, and our first Thanksgiving dinner  with them was DELISH!  Can't wait for Thanksgiving dinner again!
