Cute Cozette

Our family is loving this cute, adorable puppy.
Cozette likes to climb in the bottom of this chair while I cook and clean in the kitchen.
She loves to play tug of war with her toys, she loves to chase kids around, and she loves to attack her Kangaroo puppet.

She also loves to nap just about anywhere, especially on my lap.
She's learning a few tricks here and there.
She also rarely has accidents in the house.
I'm so grateful for this furry friend.

Free Swimming Day!

Brigham City had a free swim day.
The kids had fun with their cousins soaking in the water on such a hot day.

Joyanne enjoyed reading her book and looking after Cozette.

City Days Festivities

We had Tremonton City Days.
We enjoyed a free filling breakfast of 2 pancakes, a large sausage, and scrambled eggs provided by the city.
The kids played at the park and watched a baseball game going on.
In the afternoon, the boys participated in a soda pop drinking contest.
They didn't win, but they liked drinking a free soda.

The day was very hot and tiring, so instead of doing evening festivities, we stayed home to relax.

Family Indexing

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints encouraged all people to participate in a worlwide indexing event where they wanted 72,000 people to index at least one batch of names within 72 hours.

On Saturday, at our family reunion, Grandma had everyone that would and could to index.

Joyanne and I did as well as Jeni, Kaisha, and John.

On Sunday, Noah and Daddy indexed a batch.
How great it was to be apart of such a good thing.

Family Reunion

This family reunion was a blast.
Grandma loved holding the babies and loving all the grandkids.
I also enjoyed my cute niece.
The food was exceptional.
Each family was in charge of a meal and went all out to make it great!
All the cousins had fun running around together and playing at the park.
We all enjoyed bonding together and catching up on eachother's lives.

Happy Birthday, Hiram!

Hiram was so excited to have his birthday at Grandpa's, who also shares the same birthday.

These two buddies got some great presents, but the best present was to be in each other's presence.
We had a yummy "Mountain Men" breakfast with hash browns, eggs, sausage, bacon, ham and cheese all mixed together.

Then, as part of our family reunion, we all went floating down the river by Mack's Inn at Island Park.
That made for an exhausting, sunburnt day, but we all LOVED it!

Simple Summer Day

We have been enjoying relaxing at home these last few days.
Building with blocks and playing with cars kept these boys occupied for a couple hours.

Noah had been enjoying time at his cousin's house.
I've enjoyed time playing the piano and weeding our garden.
It was just a simple Summer day.

Jaden at Cubscout Day Camp

Jaden had fun at cub scout day camp.
He climbed up a rock wall and made it to the top with ease.
He also rode a bicycle on their dirt roads.
Arrow shooting was fun too.
It was a great day to be doing such fun things.

These 2 cute boys woke up and decided to be twinners with matching shirts and shorts.

I took a nice drive to Alpine to a surprise baby shower for my niece, Sarah.
She was so excited to see all of us there, and she was so happy with the shower.
We all had fun visiting and enjoying the yummy food.

The Doggy Duo

I have enjoyed waking up at 6:30am and going outside with the dogs to read my scriptures while they play.
Possum just loves his rope.
It's his favorite toy!
And, it's not too easy to destroy.
Cozette loves to chase Possum and run around.
She and Possum have become good friends.

But, tonight, poor Cozette threw up over 10 times.
She emptied out her stomach, and her body was still shaking.
She sat in my lap for a while and finally calmed down enough to go to sleep.
I've been so paranoid about her catching the Parvovirus.
But I think she just ate something that disagreed with her stomach.
She drank water after throwing up and kept it down.
I love her snuggles and love.
She has learned to "sit", "bark", "don't bite" and "outside" at just 3 months old.

Happy 4th of July!


Our morning started out by Daddy, Noah, and Hiram taking flags around and setting them up in people's yards.
We ate a delicious pancake breakfast at the church, and we enjoyed visiting neighbors.
The parade in Deweyville was short and sweet.
The kids got a lot of candy.

After spending all afternoon popping popcorn and making cotton candy, we went to the Brigham City park and sold it all.
We made about $200.
Then we enjoyed a great firework show.

When we got home and I checked on Possum, he bathed through the door and came in the house.
Those fireworks scare him a lot.
He slept in our room that night.
Good ole Possum!
