The kid makes my Christmas

Having kids is the best part of Christmas, they make everything about this time of year much more fun.  I let Gus decorate the tree, by himself.  It is awesome, clumps of ornaments and all.  Our ward party Santa is the greatest, he brought every kid a toy...loved it.

I got my hair colored and cut again and decided to try doing some old fashioned pin curls... I watched a tutorial online and did up my doo.  I think it looks real nice!

MOTY (mother of the year)

Warning, I might be the worst babysitter EVER!!  I was watching a little girl from my ward and she was here a total of 45 minutes.  While her mom and I chatted I noticed things outside had gotten really quiet...never good.  The kids had successfully turned on the water in our "garden" and Gus was mucking it up.  I stripped off his clothes and let him at it.  I didn't want to fight it he was having a great time.  About an hour later he came in and said "mom, I'm covered in milk chocolate." (his new favorite movie is Willy Wonka)  Man this kid, he's crazy!

Mushy Stuff

I'm real glad I found Cicily.  She is a great mom to the Goose, excellent manager of our home, beautiful woman, spiritually gifted, and a superb wife!  I think the thing I love most about her is her smile.  I'm glad she has a sense of humor because we all know she needs one to live with me!

On our wedding day, I pulled off the greatest heel click of my life!  Cicily told me that when she showed this picture to her school class they all said, "Dude, Mr. Bowles can jump!"  I don't think that's true for a couple of reasons:

  1. I'm slightly overweight
  2. I'm white
  3. I'm terribly uncoordinated

So this leaves me no other conclusion than to believe that Cicily somehow pushed me into the air using magic or something.  At any rate it felt great walking out of the temple with her at my side!

I love you Cic! Happy 5th Anniversary and here's to forever!

Gus- "Mom, what's this pocket on my underwear for?"
Me-  "Good question"

They're MINE!!

That's right, these guys are mine.  Be jealous, they are as awesome as you would imagine.  That's right, James is Funshine Carebear and Gus is an octopus. 

I apologize to those of you who encountered Gus at trunk-or-treat, he was a little sick and crabby.  Note the post trunk-or-treat picture.

Utah hair

Ty is a totally legit hair stylist and none of us have had an opporunity to have him do our hair.  So in celebration of the fall season and Ty's skills we headed to Salt Lake to have him doll us up.  We were standard girls, silly, giggly and all that business.  It's funny that all the pictures I have are of hair or us eating.  We weren't all together too often because there was always someone getting their hair done.  It was a great trip, the fall colors were beautiful.  Ty is awesome!!  Anyone who lives in Salt Lake should go, hands down the best hair wash EVER.  I wish he could come wash my hair everyday.

Salt Lake funnies:
-Summer pealing out of her driveway at 11pm
-Ty hoping the curb
-Summer running a red light
-Ty almost getting run off the road
-Fara and Lacy hunting down the late night "techno"

Lacy slept on the floor like a puppy
This is at the beginning of our trip, we did not look so hot when we got to Utah.

Summer doing her early morning jig


Ladies, he is single and he can style your hair.

Ty's picture skills :)

I'm not sure what look we were going for, but we all look silly!

I was so glad we got a group pic, until I realized Kizzy wasn't in it. 

No before picture of Kizzy, but I would describe her hair as a mullett that had been wearing a cowboy hat.  Huge improvement, huge!!
