12: September 25, 2010
13: Cole gets a big boy bed. He is only 19 mths old but he keeps trying to climb out of his bed, so we don't have a choice. His bed is adorable!! I just can't help but smile when I see him in it. He loves it! | Now when it is bed time he says "bed" and he walks himself into his room and gets his buzz and woody and goes to bed. He still wanders into our room some nights but usually stays in his bed.

15: Kaleb | Conner | Cole
16: We went and ate lunch at willow park together. The boys had fun playing on the playground. Cole is trying to shoot them with his laser. After lunch we saw the animals. Cole liked the monkeys.
17: I think we spent two dollars feeding the fish and the ducks. Cole got inpatient and threw his dime to the ducks because he couldn't wait his turn to get the food. | When the boys were little we would come here at least once a week to feed the ducks they loved it. It was a great afternoon with my boys.
18: This is what we do to entertain Conner and Cole during Kalebs soccer games. Ryan was teaching Cole how to roll down the hill. Grandma and Grandpa always come to watch Kaleb.
19: Cole likes to sneak sips of my Coke! It doesn't matter if he has his own drink or not he wants mine. Then he pulls the funniest faces but he always comes back for more. | October 9, 2010
20: Ryan usually goes out the opening weekend of the duck hunt, they usually stay the whole weekend. Which I think is crazy but he seems to enjoy it! This is the picture from 2009. Ryan and Chuck got the banded geese in December 2010. The guys above are: Ryan, Jay, Don, Steven, Jeff, Mark, Chad and Chuck.
22: Grandma and Grandpa Dowd always plant lots of pumpkins for the grandkids. They get excited and want to help. We are so lucky that they do this for them. They usually pick out the one they want when they are still little.
27: Ryan took the boys fishing at Hyrum Dam with Uncle Scott, Amber and Grandpa Bodily. They had a ton of fun. They caught and ate the fish. Kaleb has taken a liking to eating fish. | Hopefully this is just one of many fishing trips they will enjoy together. It is neat to watch them grow and enjoy things with us. They are some really special boys.
30: Fall Festival
31: October 16, 2010
33: I love the leaves, I do not know why. Is it their colors or how they fly? They crunch and crinkle Under my feet; I pile them up And take a leap!
34: The boys loved the slide, they were covered in hay when we left. Kaleb liked the pumpkin slingshot. Conner liked seeing all the corn. Cole liked running around crazy and playing with his brothers. It was a fun afternoon.
37: October 20, 2010 This was the best concert I had ever been too!! It was Nickelback, Buckcherry and Three Days Grace. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. We had to stay way out of town in a hotel that didn't had bed bugs:) We did some shopping and ate at PF Changs. It was really good. Sherrie, Kristie and I went to the concert and Landie was our driver! Then we all spent time together the next day. It was a fun getaway with some great girls.
39: Haunted Mini Golf We usually go every year with Rhonda and her kids. This year was fun because the little ones had a blast. Cole wasn't too sure about the decorations. The cat freaked him out. Kaleb and Conner can't stay away from the water, they try to find lost balls. I always enjoy getting together with Rhonda. We had a great time.

44: The boys helped clean out their pumpkins. Cole chose the moon and stars for his, Kaleb chose the spider and Conner made a jack-o-lantern face with eyebrows.
45: This is my favorite part of Halloween. You can keep your candy just give me one of Grandma Taras pumpkin rolls. They are delicious, Conner asked her to make them this year and so of course she did. Conner will sit and frost them all he loves it. I love to eat them especially when their warm.
46: Happy Halloween
47: We had a great time trick or treating this year. Even the rain couldn't get us down, we took our umbrellas and away we went. Cole just ran down the street trying to catch the boys, he had a good time. Kaleb and Conner went trick or treating with Nathan and Bryce around the neighborhood. We visited all the grandmas and got tons of candy. Kaleb was the Karate Kid, Conner was a clone trooper and Cole was stich.
49: Happy Haunting! | Don't worry, we didn't eat all the candy...at once!
57: My Boys-Gotta Love them! They exercise with me and like to sleep in my bed. I love watching them grow and learn new things. I love snuggling with them in the mornings, that is my favorite time of day.
58: Conner had been begging to make a bird feeder out of a pine cone, so he did! He loved it, we even watched birds eat off it. It was a fun project. Conner likes to make things.
59: Conner loves to do craft projects. He draws pictures and cuts them out, loves to glue things together. Cole likes to color and paint at Grandmas.
60: May The Bounty Of The Season Fill Your Heart And Your Home

63: "There is always something for which to be thankful." | This year we ate dinner at my Grandma Jan's. It was delicious as always, my favorite is her meatballs and corn. Then we got our fountain drinks and had more food at Deannas. Great day filled with all our family.
66: Christmas Lights at Temple Square
67: December 3, 2010
69: This is on our way to Temple Square, the boys had been so good while we ran some errands.
70: This was a wonderful night. I didn't think we were ever going to find a parking spot, but we did just in time to go inside the visitor center for a little while. Kaleb and Conner thought it was neat to see the pictures of Jesus that they had been learning about at church. Then we walked the temple grounds looking at all the lights, it was breathtaking to see all the colors and to feel the spirit. This was a great day with my family.
72: Kaleb's Baptism | December 4, 2010
74: This was a special day for Kaleb. Kaleb chose to be baptized and become a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Ryan was able to baptize him and Uncle Scott confirmed him. We had all the family over for breakfast snacks. I am so proud of Kaleb and his good choices. | We gave Kaleb his own scriptures, he got a "world" from Grandpa Jensen and some new journals. He had a great day. He also got a new tie pin that he loves.
77: Kaleb-Cub Scouts Kaleb earned his bobcat right after he turned eight. Then he started working on his wolf. He loved going to scouts, they went fishing, had the pinewood derby, had a library day and lots of other learning experiences. He looks forward to scouts all week. He earned his Wolf badge, a gold arrow and four silver arrows by December 2010, before his birthday. Now he can start working on his Bear.
78: This was our trip to see the mall Santa. Kaleb has already informed me that this is not the real Santa but just his helper. Kaleb asked for Lego Kingdom, and Conner wanted an ipod. Cole just wanted to get the heck out of there!
79: Birch Creek First Grade Christmas Program December 21, 2010 Conner did a great job singing the songs, I enjoyed watching him. He looked so handsome in his nice clothes. He was excited for this day.
80: We decided to make Christmas Cookies. Kaleb and Conner had lots of fun making the different shapes, Cole had fun watching them cook, Ryan had fun sneaking the dough and I liked eating them after they were done!
82: So when I ask the boys to give me a smile, Kaleb looks at me like are you kidding and gives me a small grin. Conner moves and finds the perfect place to pose for me, look how precious! Cole just copies whatever his older brothers do so he posed by the tree for me also, I thought it was cute he decided to include max in his Christmas picture.
85: December 18, 2010 We celebrated Christmas with the Bodilys early this year so we could all be together. We had dinner then Andy had fun bingo for the kids, Conner loved this. Cole just loved to eat the candy. It was great to see everyone and visit.
86: Family Christmas Parties First we had the Christiansen party, we had a great dinner then the boys got to play basketball and tag with their cousins and I got to visit with mine. Next came the Jensen party, it was at my cousin Chases house. It was a nice dinner and then the left and right game of course. It was fun to get together on Christmas Eve it reminds me of when I was little and the excitement of that night. The boys couldn't wait to get home.

92: This had to be one of my most favorite Christmas Days Ever! Kaleb was so excited that he couldn't sleep and he got us up at 5:30 -this is the first year we didn't have to wake the boys up. Richard and Deanna came over and brought breakfast, we exchanged gifts, they gave the boys Dangerous Hunts which has been a huge hit. Then we went to the Dowds for gifts and food. Our final stop of the day was at Grandma Taras and Grandpa Danes. Kaleb got his Lego Kingdom and Conner got a DS game. Cole got his own legos and a sing-a-ma-jig. It was a great day. We have had lots of fun playing with all our new toys. We are so lucky to have so many family and friends that live so close by.
