Catching Up

It seems like it has been just a whirlwind of activities the last few months.  It is time to post what we have been up to and show off some pictures!!  Of course I will start with my all time favorite “I’ve just been caught” picture.  Our family loves Karaoke.  Here I am singing away.  I turned and Bryce took a picture.  We don’t claim to be the best, but we sure love it.

Next, Bryce and I just celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary.  I can’t believe it has been 5 years and we are still madly in love.  Every year Bryce hides little notes for me to find on our anniversary.  He’s such a romantic!  This year he told me that I would definatly find the note before I left to go Cross Guarding!  I tried to find it but couldn’t.  Sure enough, right before I left I found it and had to take pictures!

People on the road would honk at us.  I even had one of my sub’s for crossing ask me if I was Aurora of “Bryce and Aurora”.  I said “Yes, I am!”  She then congratulated me for our 5 years.  He is such a sweetie.

October started off fun.  We went on a family vacation to West Yellowstone with our friends the Hanfts.  Mike, Elisa, and Calli.  As you can see it was very cold.

We think we may try to go again when it isn’t snowing.  We didn’t see too many animals but we did have a lot of fun.


Katie turned 4 this year.  I can hardly believe it.  She is getting so big.  I took these pictures at the same reception hall Bryce and I had our wedding reception.  Pretty cool.

Katie once again had a dance concert.  This time it was here halloween performance.  She did a chicken dance.  She was so cute in her costume!

She did a great job!  I was a little worried because of last year’s fiasco, but she performed like a pro!

I thought these pictures were funny!  Here is Katie working side by side with Dad.  She had a bloody nose and so to be sure it would stop bleeding, on both sides, she insisted on plugs.

Just makes you hungry doesn’t it!


Here is Katie’s costume.  I had to get it finished before I had my gallbladder surgery.  She was so cute, I took lots of pictures!  Here she is.

We called her a disco bug, but she looks more like a fairy.  I was supposed to dress up the same way, but I barely got her costume made 2 days before my surgery.  And I just didn’t feel like sewing afterwards!

Bryce dressed up as Robin Hood again.  I made him his costume a couple of years ago.  And I dressed up like a cat.  No sewing required this time.  But next year will be awesome!

We went to a party on Halloween at the Hanfts’ house.  We had a lot of fun.  I was still not feeling my best but I managed to eat a lot anyway!

November is now here!  Whew what a ride.  I am the Enrichment Leader in our ward and this year for our service project we donated a Christmas tree to the Safe Harbor Christmas tree auction.  Our Relief Society hand made many of the decorations for the tree.  I made the advent quilt and put together a program for the Relief Society Sisters for enrichment night.  Our tree turned out so cute!  Here is the tree and advent quilt. It auctioned out at $800.  That’s pretty good since we only spent $150 on it total.

Whew!  What a ride.

Next was Spencer’s birthday.  I have hit the one year mark for losing our little boy.  I can’t believe it has been a year already.  I will have his page up soon.  Please be patient.  I am still getting used to all this blog stuff.
