Busy Thanksgiving Week

So We had a really busy Thanksgiving week...

Shalyse had her baby! I'm a GRANDMA!!! They names him Kael Nicklas Rogers, he was 7lbs 3oz and 20 and 3/4 inches long. She had a long 24hr labor that ended with a C-section at 9cm. Bummer. Kael's head was turned sideways so he got suck. She did good though and is recovering really well. We are just loving having a grandbaby!!

We had Thanksgiving over at my brother's house with all the family.

And the boys went hunting the next day so Shalyse and Kael stayed over for the weekend and I got to play grandma. :) We gave him his first semi-bath cause his button hadn't fallen off yet.

And he got sleep all cozy in my bed, between mama and grandma. :)

Picture update!!

So here is the much needed picture update that I promised. We went to Lake Powell this summer will some of our family and had a blast!! I can't wait until we get the opportunity to do it again.

We had a girls getaway weekend. We went to the beach to just chill, have lots of fun, and relax. Last minute we decided to go to Disneyland. It was so much fun!!

Hunter had his 15th birthday and we had cupcakes, strawberry shortcake, and homemade ice cream.

I shaved my cat Princess because she is really fat and can't take care of herself very well anymore. She had a bunch of rat balls that needed to be cut off so we just shaved her whole body. The poor thing is so ugly now but she probably feels so much better with all that weight gone. Mitchell asked someone to homecoming this past week and this was his idea. He got a really big box so he could fit inside it, cut a slot out of the front so he could slide notes out of it. It has a touch light on the top of it as the "button" and the front says (if you can't see it in the picture) Push my button to recieve your note. He went to the girls house and had his cousin Tanner ding dong ditch the house. He sat inside the box and waited for her to push the button. Then pushed out a note that had a picture of a music note on it and said push the button again for a special letter. That note had the letter M on it and said push the button again for your reminder. That note said the Mesa High Homecoming Dance is coming up, push button again for your mission. That note said Your mission, should you choose to accept, is to go to the dance with MITCHELL HOUSTON. Then Mitchell pushed another note out that said this package with self-destruct in three seconds. 3... 2... 1... He shook around in the box for a second and then stood up and ran away, jumped in the back of his truck and they drove away. It was really funny to see, he got help from Chase, Shalyse and Tanner and it turned out way cute.

So I know this was a really long post but this is what we've been upto lately. Hopefully I will try and stay on top of it so they won't have to be so long anymore. We will see. :)

Hunter's had a birthday, shout hurray!!

So my baby boy turn 15!! Holy cow. Hunter wanted steaks for dinner so Sunday we got together and grilled up some yummy steaks. I have to say I did a really good job at making them, they were delish! Then we had the rest of the cousins, aunts and uncles come over for some yummy homemade ice cream. We were all so stuffed by the end of the night. I'm so glad Hunter had a good birthday, I love him to pieces and he will always be my baby boy. :) Sorry no pictures I'll put some up a little later.

Mitchell just started his senior year in high school and Hunter just started ninth grade. Next year Hunter will be my one and only left in school. Can you believe it!!?

what we've been up to....

So we haven't updated in quite a while so this post will be a little long. I'm a YW leader so I got to go to girls camp and I had so much fun with all the girls.

Hunter got second place in his baseball championship

We were able to make a trip to the lake with whole family except Tori. Hunter and Mitchell brought a couple of friends.

For Father's Day ALL the family came over for dinner. Shalyse made a cute Houston dumptruck cake for all the dads. The kids had fun playing around.
