Santa Clause is Coming to Town!




We went to a breakfast with Santa on Saturday. The kids had a really good time. Tyler was worried about talking to Santa, he asked him what he needed to do to get back on the "Good" list. Santa and Tyler had a heart to heart , and so far Tyler has been behaving a little better. Trevor told Santa he wanted "Thomas-Percy." Jaylen said she told Santa about the breakfast, but didn't tell him what she wanted for Christmas. She doesn't seem too worried about it. I love the holidays when my kids are so young and excited about them!

Holiday Concert 2009



Well it's that time of year again, when the kids have their holiday concert at school. I thought I would share a few of the songs they sang with you. I hope it gets you in the christmas mood! (sorry the video is so dark.)

Happy Halloween!





Halloween was fantastic this year. The weather was fairly warm (55f) or so. We went trick or treating over at Stacy and Nathans neighborhood. They had tons and tons of kids, people decorated their houses and even a couple turned their houses into haunted houses you could walk through. Jaylen got a little spooked by a guy laying in a zipped up body bag who kept twitching. The amount of candy we ended up with was absolutely crazy!

We have a young Indiana Jones, Cat Woman, and Buzz Lightyear!

Tyler is Baptized!



We had a wonderful day on September 26th 2009. Tyler was our first child to be baptized in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Many of Kelsey's family members came out for the special occasion. Most of my family was able to be there also. We are so proud of Tyler for this great decision that he has made. He was baptized, and confirmed by his father Kelsey. It was a beautiful day outside, and will be remembered in our hearts forever. I asked Tyler how he felt after he was baptized and he said "I feel like I am new."

Tyler is 8!








Tyler turned 8! He had a great Birthday the day before Labor Day! He loves his Lego Batman game. He is really into Legos right now and at his birthday party all his friends got him new legos. Kelsey had a lot of fun putting them together with Tyler. He is going to be getting baptised this week, and I am really proud of Tyler. He is so creative and smart. He is doing great in school, and he still has the best cheeks to kiss (even though he may not like me kissing him so much). Happy Birthday Tyler!

Tiny Town











A few weeks ago we decided to take a Saturday trip up to Tiny Town. It is a place in Morrison Colorado with replica's of houses, banks, churches etc. They have a little steam train and picnic area. It is very inexpensive and of course the train was a huge hit with Trevor.

NEW PICTURES!





I am very excited to say that the kids are back in school!! Just me and Trevor all day now. We got our family pictures taken a couple of weeks ago, and I have been meaning to post them for a while. I think they turned out absolutely amazing and I have to thank Jen Anderson for a fantastic job! These are just a few of my favorites.

Tri- For The Cure!




Well for those of you who don't know, I competed in a sprint triathlon this past weekend. It was a great experience and I have learned a lot about biking and swimming in the process. I feel like I did pretty good for my first time. Of course my running was the best leg, my avg mile times were 8:48. There were times that I felt like I was barely inching a long, but I just kept going. There were almost 3,000 women who competed, and the Susan G. Koman foundation raised over $100,000 for finding a cure for breast cancer. Kelsey was there to support me and take pictures. Unfortunately (or fortunately for the swim), he wasn't fast enough to get pictures of the swim, or bike portion. I think I will have to try this triathlon stuff again it was pretty cool.

A walk with the Dinosaurs!

Since Tyler is taking a trip to visit his grandparents, I decided Jaylen and I needed to do something special. We went to a show called Walking with Dinosaurs. It is like seeing what dinosaurs would have looked like if we were alive when they were. Jaylen had a great time. She told me, "this is the best moment of my life." We also enjoyed eating fresh hot mini doughnuts, and a girls night out together. Here is some of the video and pictures that I was able to get.

More Missouri Pictures








Missouri- My Home Town



This past month, my Grandpa Donald Weems passed away (we miss him already). We went to his memorial service in Missouri where he lived near my home town of Columbia. I graduated from high school there on June 1st of 1996, and had not been back since. So much changes and so much stays the same. We went past my old house where I lived for 18 years of my life, drove by my high school, and went to Rock Bridge State park where I went often in my youth. It was good to visit my roots and show my family where I came from.


There used to be a pond and forest right in front of my house, but aparently after being neglected for many years the city made other plans, but it was quite a shock.



We were planning on camping in the Lake of the Ozarks but decided my Aunt Sharon's house was just as beautiful and had better amenities.


Fireworks are legal there, unlike here. So the kids (some older than others) had a lot of fun blowing things up.

Blog Catch-Up!

I know it has been a while since our last blog. I found my missing camera cord. I just wanted to post some pictures of the kids with their teachers from this last school year.


Tyler had Miss Cantrell. She was a softspoken and very sweet teacher. She would do this little thing to get the kid's attention Doot do do doot do and wait for the kids to finish the do doot. She was a fantastic teacher for Ty, and he learned a ton this past year.


Jaylen had Ms Petitt. She was previously a 5th grade teacher, but loved teaching kindergarden. Jaylen loved Ms Petitt and Ms Jenni her aid.

We are enjoying our summer, but the end is already in sight! School supply lists are out, and we only have a month of summer break left!

Summer Soccer



Well summer is here, and I am behind on my blogging, but in my defense, I lost the cord from my camera that downloads my pictures, and I am really busy (recovering from the stomach flu, coaching kindergarten soccer, being young women's president, training for a triathlon, oh yeah and the kids are out for summer). We have been at the soccer field 3x a week. I am glad the kids were able to play and learn some new skills. Tyler runs really fast and winds is right arm at the same time, luckily no one nearby was injurred. Jaylen, learned a tricky back kick move and surprised all the parents, including me. I think the most important part of the whole thing, was what snack and drink they got. We had fun, but I'm glad it's done. I don't know if I am cut out to be a soccer mom.

Easter!








We had fun this easter. Tyler an Jaylen always love decorating the eggs. Trevor really loved it. He kept dunking his whole hand egg and all in multiple dye colors. Here we are in our Easter Best!
