Down Rainbow Canyon

Last Sunday we went down to Boy Scout Falls.  There were these tiny little fish under the waterfall so of course Matt tried to shoot them.  I couldn't help myself and shot at this poor little guy.  Then I felt bad because I killed him.  Matt laughed at me.  I tried to put him back in the water, but it didn't work.  ☺

Here is the waterfall.

The kids loved playing in the sand and Matthew thought he was supposed to eat it.

We then went further down to Grapevine Canyon.  There were tent caterpillars (moths) everwhere so I just had to bring some home.

We put them in our butterfly house.

Savannah had fallen asleep by now so I took pics of Matthew while Annabella shot the gun with her daddy.

Here he is eating the grass

Playing together

Time to drive home.

O Christmas Tree

Yes, I know I take forever to post these things.  We went to get our tree the first week of December and I'm just now posting it.  The girls had fun looking for a tree and spent most of the time looking for arrowheads.

Savannah wearing out the pups.  You can see Piggy in the back NOT keeping up cuz she's fat and old ;)

Momma quit taking my picture.....

Here Matt was saying, "Geez, woman put down the camera and help me!" 

He says this a lot.

Apparently, I'm a little too camera happy ;)

Ballet positions

I caught Savannah leading Chuck Liddell through the positions of ballet.  I'm sure he would be pleased on how manly he is ;)  Here is first position......

My lil' 4-month-old

My little (big chunk) boy is already 4 months old!  Time goes by way to fast.  He can roll easily both ways and is trying to get up onto his knees.  Matthew also already weighs 19 pounds!  He is always laughing and smiling and just loves his sisters.  He loves to grab the kitty and try to put him in his mouth and just stroke his fur.  I am so blessed to have him and his beautiful sisters.  But can someone tell me why they all have to have Daddy's hair and eyes?!  So not fair :)

Parowan Memories....

So this weekend I went home to 'Gonah/Parowan.  It is sooo pretty there this time of year.  I got to see my best friend Timberlee!  We don't get to see each other often and we have been friends since the fourth grade.  I used to spent nearly every night at her house in the summer and we always had such a blast.  We used to sneak out at night a lot (sorry mom), hang out at the park, sneak into abandoned places, swim at the city pool, watch scary movies, eat lots of junk food, be silly, and just have fun.

Here's an old pic of us ;)

We spent much of our time at the Parowan Park.  I feel so old now seeing my children play there.

The trees look so pretty this time of year

We often went to Wild Bills for candy and soda.  So sad to see it go......

But we mostly went to the Maverick.  We would always walk here from Timberlee's house and, of course, I never wore any shoes!

The Parowan canyon is gorgeous too.....

My favorite part of smalls towns....the herding of various livestock.

Coming soon.....Paragonah memories

Matthew's Blessing

This Sunday we blessed our sweet baby Matthew Neal Young.  It was so nice that my parents were able to make it. We also had a nice lunch at Matt's parents.  The outfit he is wearing is a size 6-9 months and he is only 3 months!  He's such a cute little chunker :)
