This year for Christmas Tadd's parents gave us the experience of riding the Polar Express to the North Pole! On the Heber Creeper, of course.
The gift was mostly for the kids, but we adults definitely benefited from it as well! Unfortunately, Tadd was in St. George at a golf tournament (which he won), but that meant I got to take Jack as my date!
After hot chocolate and cookies we settled in for our ride up to the North Pole!
Reading the Polar Express, and seeing the anticipation in the kids eyes was so fun!
Once we'd reached our destination Santa came aboard and asked each and every child what they wanted for Christmas, and handed them a bell!
For Jack: A Transformers guy
For Ava: A Jack in the Box
To name a couple...
After Santa came aboard we headed back to the train station while singing Christmas carols with the reader, elves and chefs.

Griffin sampling the relish tray
After dinner we spent some time lounging around napping, watching football, or crafting a bit.
Later that evening we went down to the fire station to drop off a pie to thank them for all they do (Lacey and Rick's idea)! The firefighters were so great and took us on a tour of the firetrucks! Such a great holiday!

October came and went so dang fast, but without much hoopla. Naturally Halloween was a main event, and also finding out we are expecting a little June bug! Other than that...I have nothing else to report.
Bree - Cow, Addison - Zebra, Jack - Army guy, Van - Santa Clause
Me, Lacey, Tysen, Shaley, Kecia, Lindey
We spent Halloween with the Coxes this year, and since it wasn't ridiculously cold out I headed out with the trick-or-treaters!
Other Halloween activities I participated in...
Pumpkin Carving (post to come later)
Thriller (deleted my pictures like a fool)
Witches Night (post to come later)

Everything went so well, and the couple couldn't have looked happier the whole day!
The day started out at 8 A.M. in my bathroom for hair and make-up. I was a titch nervous that Shaley would be a jittery wreck (as she had forewarned), therefore making the whole experience a disaster. Luckily, she was excited and looking forward to the big day...only a few butterflies!
The only hitch of the day was when Tadd headed out to the Provo temple, which would've made for a delightful ceremony...however, the sealing was to take place at Mt. Timpanogas! Thank goodness Grandpa set him straight! (I was being the silent backseat passenger...or rather completely clueless as to what was going on).
We did make it on time, and luckily we didn't have to replay the events of Haley's wedding...(disaster), and the sealing was wonderful!
SO beautiful and SO handsome!
I don't have one of the Leishmans, or I'd post that too! Maybe Lacey should blog, so I could steal one... tee hehe!
L-R: Kris and Bree, Tadd and the dudes in their sweater vests, Addison kickin' back, Myself and Breezy, Kecia with her girls, Tadd and Crew, Haley and Addison, Uncle Tadd and Addison
Stupid buttcrack bangs
So glad they fed each other traditionally!
Heading out the door for their weekend away!
Such a perfect, special day!
The neatest thing of the day would've been all the Cox siblings and their spouses present at the sealing. There was a very special spirit in the room, and I feel so blessed to have been a part of such a great experience!
Congratulations Shay and Roman! We wish you the BEST in your new life together!
