Scarecrow Festival!

Today we ventured out to Thanksgiving Point for the kick off to Fall Break! Thanks to Grandma Deb:) The kids had an absolute ball.....I just wish I would've felt better. I still have no energy and pushing Dax in the dumb umbrella stroller through the grass kicked my butt. Just when you think you might be getting in shape, you get sick and it all goes downhill after that....oh well! All that really matters is the kids had fun!! And the best part (NOT) I brought my camera to take all those cute pics and after I had taken lots of cute ones....I realized that my memory card was not in my camera, but at home in my computer!!!! And apparently my camera doesn't have any memory of it's own so the only pics I got were the ones my sister took. Gosh Dang it!! I hate it when that happens! They had tons of fun things for the kids to do like face painting, rock climbing, train riding, game playing, bum sliding, bounce house jumping, people dancing, boutique shopping and yummy eating.....a plethera of fun!!! And to end our fun day (of coarse my favorite part) lunch at Chili's...Yum!!
The weather turned out to be couldn't have been better. Thanks Grandma, Kim and Hagen (and Grandma Lori) for yet another fun day! We always love when we get to spend time with them!
Happy Fall Break!!!
Now what are we going to do tomorrow???

Sick kids

3 very cute but very sick kids!!! It doesn't happen very often that all of your kids get sick at the very same time! That especially rings true at our house because none of my kids get sick very often and today......all 3 of them!

Dax has been sick for about 3 days with a fever, runny nose and cough. I hate to admit it:) I love it! All day Monday he was so huggable, lovable and unbelievably cuddly!! How could a mom not love that??? Cuz normally he is much to busy to be doing any of that! However his newest favorite is giving "Bones" and he will drop just about anything he is doing to give you bones, but don't even think about asking for a kiss, it goes in one ear and out the other meaning:) No way!! He is pretty dang good about ignoring you if he wants to! Little stink!

And Walker fell asleep about 7:00 last night. I thought it was because he is always going a hundred miles a minute and once he finally sits still for 2 seconds he falls asleep, but I think I was wrong. He woke up in the middle of the night coughing with a runny nose. He (along with Avorie) was up most of the night. And this morning he asked to get in the bathtub because he was cold and the next thing I know he is crying saying he just threw up in the bath. When he got out of the tub, he was as white as a ghost and he kept telling me his eyes and his belly hurt. Weird.....his eyes?? He has never said that before. I looked at his eyes and they look like he has been swimming in a chlorinated pool all day long.

Miss Avorie came home from dance last night and immediately went for her blanket because she said she was freezing. She sat up to eat dinner and got the shivers and said she wasn't hungry. I knew something was wrong when Walker asked if we could go to Yogurt Bliss for family night and Avorie said she didn't want to go. (She begs every single day to go Yogurt Bliss) So when I said I have a bad feeling about this and felt her head to find out she had a temperature suddenly she said she was just fine and she would love to go to Yorgurt Bliss and get some icecream, but she didn't want any toppings.....she didn't feel like eating candy! Oh yeah, I knew something was wrong, and I sent her to her bed to lay down. She didn't fight me, and the next thing I knew she was out like a light:) until 3 AM that is. She woke me and asked if she could have a bath in my tub. And she stayed awake the rest of the night. This morning when I went in her room she tried so hard to act like she was feeling fine because she wanted to go to school. I tried to explain to her if she went to school she would pass it to more kids and it would get spread all over. Thank goodness she finally admitted to her belly hurting and decided it would be a good idea for her to get back in her bed.

All 3 fast asleep in their beds......what do I do????

BLOG! Clean, make treats...whatever I want!

Our New Addition!

"Billie" & "Hoofs" the goats....the newest additions to our family!!!

Yes, your eyes do not decieve you....goats! We have two pet goats! Most people (at least those who don't live on a farm) have animals like cats, or dogs, maybe even fish, but Morgan thought it would be fun for our kids to raise a goat! As you can imagine, there is never a dull moment at our house!!!

The kids thought that this was the greatest idea ever:) they were so stinking excited! They walked them around for hours, had to show all the neighbors, and every chance they could get they were out checking on them making sure they weren't cold, or if they needed a drink, some food or a even blanket. I guess it will be good for them to have to take care of something because our dang gold fish we caught in the fish pond at the ward party a few months ago (I thought wouldn't last for more than a week) I am now taking care of daily. They have actually become my little friends. I notice them watching me especially when they are hungry. They stick their cute little noses up to the glass and wait for me to notice so I will feed them. So since I take care of our fish, Morgan and the kids are in charge of the goats. For those of you who are wondering where in the world we are keeping those goats.......yep, as WT as it is, they are tied up in our backyard!! The Evans Family Farm......our petting zoo:) Come on over!

As if that isn't funny enough, Morgan thought it would be great to give one of the goats to Matt & Mick for their birthdays!! So we tied a big bow around it's neck and delivered it to the party!! Matt, being the animal lover that he is, I thought would freak out, but he actually thought it was pretty dang funny! ......And it was hilarious!!!

In case you can't tell, Matt's got the goat ready for a ride in his saddle bag! He found a new best friend! And now Mason wants to know when he gets his goat for his birthday???? Ha Ha! Look what we started??
