Silly Kambree

So Kambree is our most creative when it comes to learning new words and there meanings. The other day we were coming home from preschool, and she had been sneezing a lot that day and she turned to me and said "Mom I have been having a lot of bless U's today." It took me awhile but I finally realized that "Bless U's" were  actually the sneezes I could not stop laughing, in my head of course I didn't want Kambree to feel bad so I looked at her and said "Yeah you have".

However, my all time favorite came two nights ago when Todd and I let her lay in bed with us. She was telling Todd how I am always losing things, and it's true. If you were to ask me where my phone or my cars key's were 95% of the time I have no idea. Well she said to Todd "mom's a laa-ser" then she paused and with gusto she said the word she was actually trying to say the first time it went like this..." MOM's A LOSER!" Todd and I could not keep this laugh in our heads. We busted up for a good 5 minutes. She is so funny. What would we do without Kambree.

Halloween 2010

Many of you know that Halloween is one of my favorite Holidays. I like to dress my whole family up in coordinating costumes,and try lots of new foods and ideas out on my family. So this year, thanks to the Taste of Homes Magazine, I had lots of new ideas and a giant sugar cookie was one of them. I think everyone got excited about what the surprise of the day was especially Kambree when on  "day 1 " of Halloween ate a pumpkin muffin and declared "this is so good I LOVE DAY ONE!"
Now back to dressing my family in coordinating costumes.
Karson wanted to be a football player this year so .....

Kambree became the cheerleader...

Bailey the mascot...

 (The hat was a little itchy and she didn't like that but Aunt Jessica  told her people wouldn't give her candy unless she had it on. So of course she wore it for the whole trunk-or-treat and then when we went to our old neighborhood to trick-or- treat  she, at every house, put the hat on said trick-or-treat and then took it off until the next house.

Todd and I dressed up as the Referee and "The Fan"

 The kids had so much fun trick-or-treating they all crashed in the car on the way home so you know what that means Todd and I had free rain of the candy. I would say this was a very successful holiday!!

More pictures from Halloween:

Jessica and Aiden joined us trick-or-treating

My annual Halloween Dinner in a pumpkin, where everyone comes dressed up to eat.

Karson really decided to go in character by loosing his second top tooth today so he could be toothless.

Lake Powell

Lake Powell is one of my favorite place to vacation. We would go there growing up with my Uncle,and ever since Todd I were married I have told him about this wonderful place on earth. I mean really this is a beautiful place where all concept of time is lost. Cell phone reception is little to none-existent, you can see more stars in the night sky than I have ever seen, and if you wanted to you can just sit and float in the water all day long with not a care in the world. I finally got to share all this with my little family, and our Uncle Kevin thanks to a very nice man my husband works with who invited us to stay a week on his house boat.  My pictures tell all.....

We all loved it...

Okay almost all of us Bailey was not a very happy girl this week she was getting 4 of her molars, and was not a fan of the loud noise that the boat made.

However, we did get her to smile a few times.

Kambree loved the slide off the back of the house boat.

Karson made a new friend,

We played on the tubes...

Cliff jumped everywhere we could....and yes I got my children to jump to and they loved it!

 We jumped, rolled, and hopped down a giant sand dune...

Knee boarded, Skied, and my favorite learned how to wake board.

I'm sorry but one should not go a week without washing

their hair so one of the many joys at Lake Powell washing your hair in the lake.

 We explored a cave we could only get to by water.

This was my favorite spot. We parked our boats and ate lunch,
 it was very peaceful. Then we spent time swimming and jumping
 off the rock in the bottom corner.  Is this place not beautiful.

We HIKED up to an old Indian Ruin. It was little scary, but we all  made it.
This is the view from the ruin at the top of the cliff.

Our Hike/slide down from the ruin I didn't know if we would all make.  

We saw a lot of Lake Powell that I had never seen before. Including this "Secret" canyon that just keeps going and going and is so narrow the boats couldn't turn around we had to back out of it. At end is a big sand bar your supposed to be able to play on but it had rained the week before and the runoff made it so we could 't get the boats all the way back.

Rainbow bridge was beautiful and amazing to see.

A guide at rainbow bridge showed us a  dinosaur print in the rock.
Karson is  knelling by it, but it is kind of hard to see in the picture.

  We really had a good time and I can't wait until we can go back.
