Uncle T!!!

I have one brother, and he is the sweetest kid!!! Ryan has all sorts of names for him, but usually just calls him "Uncle!" This weekend Justin went hunting, so we headed up for "Uncle's fuball game." He got to start for the first time on the DO varsity football team, as a junior!!! We had a great time and had fun watching them win!

Ryan and Kylie eating while watching the fun. Papa asked Ryan what he was doing and his response was, "Sittin on wood!" He thought it was so fun!

Ryan enjoying the game with Great Grandpa and Great Grandma Callaway!

Thanks to the Refs, the game didn't get over until 11:00 PM, so Austin was snoozing away! Ryan with Uncle T.

Uncle Trevor with Cousin Luke!!!

It was Teacher Appreciation Night, so Trevor's teacher wore his jersey!

Love you Trevor!!! Happy Birthday (in 2 days)!!!


We have been working hard in the backyard, and when I say "we," I mean Justin. He has been spending the time he has between work, school, being Scout Master, husband and Daddy, working in the yard. We finally have a patio, a lawn, trees, and plants!!! We just need to finish the walkway, fire pit, and the water feature, and we'll be set!!!

Ryan of course had to help, and drove Daddy CRAZY!!!

"Howdy Partner!"

Ryan has this cowboy hat that he's had ever since his first Halloween. His most recent favorite movie is also "Toy Story," so he likes to put the hat on and pretend that he's Woody all the while running around yelling out lines from the movie and singing songs. Today he put the hat on Austin and said "Howdy Partner!" It was so adorable and Austin thought he was quite cute himself laughing at Ryan.

I joined...

the Hot Momma Minivan Driver Club! We've been back and forth since Austin was born on whether or not we wanted to join this "elite club," but finally decided we needed the space. After a month of searching and several near purchases, we finally did it! My sweet new ride!

Ryan really wanted a "pink minivan," and we searched long and hard, but found no Barbie mobile. Sorry to disappoint! We do love the auto sliding doors, the leather seats, and the DVD player. We could live in this thing I tell ya!

Rocky Mountain "Rumble"

This past weekend the boys and I traveled with my parent's and sister to Pocatello, Idaho where my alma mater (sp?), Del Oro, played in the Rocky Mountain "Rumble" football tournament. My brother is a junior and on the team, so we of course made the trip to show our support. We also got to see my 3 other sisters who live in Rexburg and are attending, or supporting a husband who attends, BYU-Idaho, also my alma mater. We had a great trip and enjoyed the game, even though they lost by one lousy point!

12 hours??? In my car seat??? You have got to be kidding me!!!

On Friday night we went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner, and the boys were so cute on this saddle. Ryan wanted Austin to get on it with him, but he wasn't too sure!

We are "Ready for some football!!!" Or some necklaces, whatever!

"Black and Gold let's go!!!" My cousin Luke is kicking the ball!!!

6 months ago...

I was laying in a bed recovering from a c-section praying for my little boy who lay in an incubator with oxygen tubes in his nose, a feeding tube in his mouth, and monitors taped to his body and beeping all around him.
I can't believe that's been 6 months ago already! We now have a bouncing, squeaking, teething, and constantly eating 6 month old boy. Austin has been such a blessing to our family and we are so grateful for him and the sweet spirit that he's brought to our home!

This is what we listen to all day long. This boy doesn't like to sleep, but we love him anyway!

Picnic and fun!

On Labor Day our ward had a picnic. Ryan had a great time with EJ, as usual! They got their faces painted...then got to do "water balloon hot potato."And of course, watch what the big kids were doing.
After that we headed home and got some work done. I caught the boys being as cute as ever.
Ryan climbed into his toy box, aka the coffee table, after throwing most of his toys out and onto the floor.

Austin just hung out in his new favorite thing, the jumperoo!Love this one! The "bitter beer face!"
