Lindsay's Field Trip

Lindsay took a field trip to Anderson Farms with her preschool. There were a lot of activities for them to do. They went on 2 tractor rides, picked pumpkins, fed farm animals, went through (and on top of and over) mazes, learned about squash and sugar can, rode the barrel train, and rode the trike track. She and Logan had A LOT of fun! No one wanted to leave when it was time to come home and she kept saying, "We have to bring Dad and Brandon back here!" We didn't get a chance to take Brandon and Dad, but went to Fritzler Maze with them instead where we also had a really good time, but sadly no pictures of that one!

This is as close as Lindsay would get to feeding the goat. The poor goats were just reaching as far as they possibly could to get that food, but Lindsay just wouldn't get close enough! She managed to feed one goat one time, but other than that, just had fun watching mom do it! (Logan thought he wanted to try too, but quickly found out that he didn't really care for feeding the goats either)

Lindsay and her friend Zoiee have fun riding horses in front of the bunny town.

Logan chose a great pumpkin! And getting ready for a ride on Oliver the tractor

Making sure to find the best pumpkin!

Because I love you!

My gorgeous little sister, Steph, tagged me and I am HORRIBLE at answering tags but since it was her first one and I adore her, I thought I would try to get this one answered!

So, it's all about your spouse and so here's our story.

1. Where did you meet? We were set up by Shane's sister-in-law about a week after he got home from his mission..... yea you heard me, a week!

2. How long did you date before you got married? Like I said he had been home a week... we didn't really hit it off needless to say. But about a year later he happened to be visiting his brother during spring break and I had canceled a trip with my room mates to come home due to some unexplained irrational intense feeling of homesickness. He asked me out again... I didn't want to go, but for some reason couldn't say no and so we went out, had fun and were married about 5 months later.

3.How long have you been married? 8 years

4. What does he do to surprise you? He brings me flowers and the makings for delicious smoothies. He takes the kids to the store or park or out to eat when he can tell I need a break. And every once in a while, it really does surprise me how funny he can be when in the right mood!

5. What's your favorite feature about him? I like his lips and his calves.

6. What is your favorite quality about him? I never ever have to wonder if he loves me because he tells me and shows me CONSTANTLY. Also he is THE MOST honest person I have ever met!

7. Does he have a nickname for you? "Sweetie" all the time... sometimes it surprises me when he calls me by my name :)

8. What's his favorite color? Red.

9. What's his favorite food? He really likes a lot of stuff, but way up there on the list is lasagna, tiny spicy chicken and nachos.

10. What's his favorite sport? Depends on the season. No, he really likes basketball and college football, but really he will watch almost any sport.

11. Who said I love you first? Shane

12. When and where was your first kiss? In the basement of his brother's house. I was very nervous because I knew he wanted to kiss me and I had a rule that I would not kiss a guy if I didn't know his middle name. He kissed me and I had to stop him and ask what his middle name was... then we continued.

13. Do you have kids? 3. Brandon, Lindsay and Logan and one on the way and what an awesome dad they have.

14. What is a hidden talent that he has? Doing an awesome runway walk... yes, really!

15. How old is he? He will be 31 in December

16. What's his favorite type of music? He really has a wide variety of things he listens to. One of his favortie groups ever though is Red Hot Chili Peppers

17. What do you admire most about him? Like I said, he is super honest. He is smart and funny and lives to make his family happy. He is very devoted to the things he loves.

18. What's his favorite past time? Well, we like tv and movies, but his hobbies are camping, fishing, and hunting.

19. Will he read this? Eventually when he does his "catching up" on the blog! Love you Shane!

Some of my Favorites

Shane's niece, Chelsea, took some time out of her busy schedule and to take some pictures of our family! She always does a really great job and working with my uncooperative children is NO picnic! These are just a few of the 150 she took! Thanks Chels, we love 'em!

Not to excite your anticipation....

I know many of you have been waiting for me to get a new camera so you can see pictures of your grandchildren and niece and nephews... well, last night I got a new camera!!! It's a really simple point and shoot, but that's all I need!  So, hopefully this weekend, I will be able to do some posting with pictures!  (I just need to have time and figure out how to use it first)

To Do List

Brandon created a "To Do" list for Shane and I.  Shane's is:

1. Wake up
2. Go to work
3.  Come home
4. Give Hug
5. Spend some time
6. Go to sleep

And this one is mine:
1. Take care.

I asked him, "take care of what?"  He said, "Us."  
Sounds good to me.
