Happy Birthday Brendan!!

I can't believe that Brendan is already 1 years old. It was just yesterday that I was in the hospital delivering him. He has been such a good baby. Hopefully he keeps it up and stays that way. I hope he had a good birthday! It is to bad that it is so close to Christmas. He still got spoiled and will be spoiled for Christmas too.

We went down to Utah this weekend to see family and the lights. Well needless to say we didn't go see the lights we were with family all the time. We also knew we would have 2 boys throw a fit because they wouldn't leave their cousins. We had a little Party on Saturday night. We played some games and broke the pinata. It was a lot of fun. Needless to say I should've stayed home to finish Christmas but it was more fun in Utah with family.

So I was looking at my cousins Blog and got this idea to post this elf thing on mine. Thanks Emily & Jed. I laughed so hard I had to do my own. I hope you enjoy and try it too. It is lots of fun. My kids love it. Hope everyone is more ready for Christmas then I am. I still have lots to do. I'll manage to get it done though sometime. Enjoy! Don't laugh to hard. Click on the title Elf's above to see the elf page. Merry Christmas!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Well I hope everyone had a wondeful Thanksgiving. I sure did with all the food. Even though I probably gained 10 pounds it was sure good. We shared it with both sides of the family like always. But we enjoyed it. My whole family was up and we had fun getting together. The girls did the early morning shopping Friday morning and got some good deals. We went to a Jesse's Basketball game. It was a good game but the refs sucked. Well I can't believe this month is already over. Brendan is almost a year old. They grow up way to fast. I also can't believe Christmas is right around the corner. That is probably when I'll update again. Enjoy my Christmas music until then.

Happy Birthday Bradley!!

Today is Bradley's Birthday. We had a little celebration yesterday becasue today is the first day of the Briggs Boys Hunt. Hopefully they shoot something. I think Bradley was happy with what he got and had a good day. He is 5. I can't believe it, it was just yesterday when I had him. Grandma & Grandpa Mickelsen, Graig, Tory & Lindsey, and Jace & Whitney came over. We enjoyed some Pizza and then some of Bradley's Transformer DQ cake. He got a lot of Transformers stuff, clothes, & cars. He loved it all. He has spent most of the day with Grandma & Grandpa Dial today because they were at a funeral yesterday in Utah. They took him to breakfast and now he is over helping them with things at there house. I'm sure he is enjoying his time with them. Happy Birthday Bradley!!

Happy Halloween!

It was an exciting Halloween for us. We went to Idaho Falls to the Trick or Treat Street that the radio stations put on. It was a long line but worth it. The kids got a lot of candy. We went to both Grandma and Grandpa's houses also. It was a lot of fun. The kids were worn out by the end of the night. Hope everyone had a safe and Happy Halloween.

Where Has Time Gone?

This month has gone by way to fast. I can't believe it almost November. Well I had the opportunity to go hunting with Justin at the beginning of the month. It was so much fun. We saw a couple of deer but Justin missed. Thanks to a good friend who watched my kids the night before so I could go with him. We also went to Utah to see family and watch my nephew play football. That was fun. We have had alot of family get togethers with Justin's family because of so many birthdays this month.
The Briggs/Dial Family
My sister-in-law and I took our annual shopping spree to Park City for the weekend to get some Christams shopping done. That was a nice break and fun to spend some time with Becca. She is so much fun. We had a blast. While I was gone I came home to a surprise. An early Christmas present. Justin bought a 56 inch T.V. for our early Christmas present he couldn't wait, of course to be able to watch FOOTBALL on it.
Our New T.V.
Bradley will be turning 5 on Saturday. I can't believe it. I'm getting so old and he is growing up way to fast. The kids are so excited for Halloween so I'll be posting a few pictures in a couple of days for the exciting day of playing dress up. I keep teasing the boys that they are going to be Princesses for Halloween just to see there reaction. They love me for that one. Well I guess what haven't I done this month? It has been a busy one.

Nerd Herd

Justin and I went in for our eye exams today. Obviously this is the result. How sad! The funny part is that Justin has 20/50 vision and the Dr. told him if he was to get his licensed renewed he probably wouldn't pass without his glasses. HAHA!! Mine wasn't that bad, but thanks to kids, they've gotten worse so I had to get them also. 20/25 was my result.

The Dr. laughed at both of us because we are totally opposite in eye vision. How do we look? We are officially NERDS!!

We went up to my cousins cabin this weekend. It was a blast. The kids had a ball with Grandma, Grandpa Mickelsen, Cassie, and Lorin. They went fishing many times and definitely kept Grandpa busy. It was a fun weekend to just relax and unfortunately watch FOOTBALL. I'm so sick of football already and it is just beginning. Mom kept me busy by helping her make homemade bread and her famous Clam Chowder. So that made up for not watching football. The cabin was beautiful and enormous. It was like another home. We stayed up and played games until 2:00 in the morning. My mom even stayed up and played. Here are a few pictures up there.

My celebrity look-alikes

Justin and I played on this forever and come to find out they all looked like me more then Justin. He was so mad! I was loving every minute of it.

Bear Lake

We went to Bear Lake during Labor Day with Jace and Whitney. We had a blast. The kids loved the sand and water. I enjoyed it myself. It was Becca's first time there. I was not worried about the kids because you can go out so far before it is over your head. We loved it.

We are a busy family. Bradley and Mason just started pre-school. Brendan is crawling all over the place and it is going to be any day that he starts walking. He pulls himself up to the furniture and walks along it. He is almost 9 months old. I can't believe it. Bradley is definitely "Denise the Menace." Mason had surgery this summer on his tonsils, adenoids, and tubes put in his ears. There is definitely a big change.
