Dancing, 7 Years, Mt. Home

The ladies began dance class last week. Sienna was so. very. excited. about this. She couldn't wait to get all dressed up in her new dance clothes, and twirl around the house. She is taking with her cute little friend Cate (who is also a curly blond cutie. I feel SO sorry for her teachers...I'm just imagining the trouble those 2 can get in!) I can't wait to see how she does!

Adyson is also taking with a few friends, and is thrilled that they are dancing to a Miley Cyrus song. Dreams can come true people. They can.

{7 years}
Travis and I celebrated our 7th anniversary this weekend. It was different from the other anniversaries we've shared. Normally we spend the weekend in Park City, but this year we opted to go and spend the long weekend with the kids in Mt. Home with my sister and her kiddos. We spent our anniversary lounging around Heather's in our pj's, playing Monopoly, Yahtzee, and Scrabble.
Romantic eh?
Oh the romance doesn't stop there.
Travis also was blessed to wake up to 15 cankers in his mouth on Friday.
15. Or at least I stopped counting somewhere around 15.
He didn't feel much like talking, eating, or doing much of anything, so the distraction of 6 crazy kids, and my fun, crazy family was a really good thing.
I sure love him. It's been a fantastic 7 years, and I'd surely do it all over again.
Now if only we could get rid of those cankers! Oh, and that cancer....:)
Disclaimer: This picture was taken after a VERY long day.

The best part of the weekend was surely watching the cousins play. They have so much fun together, and just entertain one another so much! Brielle and Sienna are fast friends. Brielle is finally old enough to really play with Sienna, and she is just perfect. (Those of you who knew heather as a baby, do you see the resemblance??)

Grandma bought all the grand kids some great little flashlights that have tops that pop on to project Halloween shapes. The kids LOVED these, and spent a good portion of the day hiding in Heathers closet with the door shut telling Halloween stories. Precious. (And such a nice quiet game, us adults weren't complaining!)

Monday we woke up and decided to break up the drive home by stopping in Twin Falls for lunch and a quick trip to the Temple. After we got there we realized that the gates are locked on Monday, so we weren't able to walk around the grounds, but we were still all so impressed with how amazing they are. It is beautiful!
The cousins (except for Simon, who was missed, so much!)

Much CONGRATS to the sweet couple! Mine & Chiki's anniversary is on January 3rd, which normally happens to fall on some pretty cold days. We have spent many years celebrating by ordering pizza and snuggling with blankets. Heck as long as you spend it together ... that is all that counts!!

Happy 7th Anniversary! That is about as romantic as ours are every year - maybe even a little bit more :) I am so sorry about Trav's mouth. So rough :( Can I do anything for you or your sweet fam? I am very, very excited to see you at really has been TOO long.
