Wizard the Crazy Elf

Our crazy elf Wizard returned to our house just after Thanksgiving. Here are just a few of the crazy things that has done. He also brought messages from the North Pole. You probably aren't suprised that the boys were on the naughty list and Peyton was on the good list. I think she is too young to be on the naughty list. Thanks Wizard for keeping an eye on the kids for Santa!!

Community Care

Derek got a new job. He was approached by the Community Care in Pocatello and asked to come and work for them. We think that it will be a good opportunity for our family. Better hours some holidays off and more time with us! We are excited for the change! Hope it is a good move!!!

Halloween 2011

Carving pumpkins, a couple Ninjas and a Bee! The boys were Ninjas because I bargain shopped and got the costumes for .75 cents a piece last year! That was nice! The kids enjoyed trick or treating and it was hopefully Derek's last Halloween working nights!!!

Pumpkin Pickin

We headed out to Inkom to pick in Grandma Sherry's pumkin patch. There were so many big pumkins. The kids had so much fun. I think Grandpa Bell did to! Thanks for letting us enjoy!

Easton of course picked the biggest one!

Peyton got the smallest!
Cannon got the Medium one!

The kids enjoyed a ride in the trailer.

Cannon helped Grandpa wash the pumkins up! I think Easton was inside sampling Grandma's chicken noodle soup!

Fall Flag Football 11 on 11

This was Easton's first year to play 11 on 11 fall flag football. It was alot of fun to watch. Easton played on the defensive line and linebaker. He was a flag ripping machine! Expecially when I gave him a Mountain Dew before the game! I think he is going to be a great football player!

Cannon's Soccer

Cannon made his Mom proud this season in soccer. He was SO good. He scored about 10 goals a game and the coach would final tell him that he had to go back and play defense. He would stand back there and then as soon as the ball would get close he would sprint for it and head down the field for another goal. He tried to pass a few times but told me, "Mom if you get the ball you get to score the goal." We will have to work on team work. He got to play with his cousin Peri and few kids from our ward. It was alot of fun

Here is Cannon watching the action while he is on defense.

First Day of School

Holy cow I can't believe he is a 3rd Grader! Easton will be in Mrs. Taki's class this year and was ready to head back to school. I think more to see his friends than anything else!

Cannon started preschool with Miss Sheri. He really likes her and is always tell me, "Well Miss Sheri said........". As long as he gets to the front door first it is a good day at preschool!

Annual Huckleberry Picking

Derek convinced me to go camping and Huckleberry picking again this year. We met Jylisha and Grant up at the camping site and they picked with us the first day. Cameron and Megan came up the last day and picked with us. We got several gallons so now I have some jam to make! Peyton was so funny picking and eating the berries. Check out the video at the end of this post!

Boys Camping Trip

The boys talked Derek into taking them camping before School started. The went up to Malad Summit and went fishing. Cannon caught fish, Easton caught Craw Fish and a Water Snake that Derek let him bring home. The put them in Easton's fish tank and they stunk up my whole house. Finally all the Craw Fish died and just the snake was left. Then Easton left the lid open a little bit and the snake got out. It is still not to be found. I don't know if it went down the air vent or is just dead somewhere. Hopefully not ALIVE somewhere!!!!
