Merry Merry Christmas!

We spent Christmas here in town with Colt's family this year. It was a little hectic because Colt's grandpa had been in the hospital until Christams eve morning but it was tons of fun and yummy yummy dinner! Kyson wasn't feeling all that well and didn't leave the couch the entire night, poor little bug.

This is Kyson's bike from Grandpa Stevie that he didn't even want to touch he felt so sick- Kolby didn't mind taking over:)
Now Colt should be able to take the kids when he goes hunting for a week!

Shootin' hoops Christmas morning.

This dump truck is the cutest thing and Kolby's favorite new game!

This is Christmas morning when Kyson felt a little more chipper. I can't wait to see him cruise around on it!

It's Been a While...

I know I have been slacking on my posts so here is an official update of what we have been up to... and, brace yourselves cause it's a lot to take in all at once!:)

Kyson loves this game- if only he could really pack Kolby himself and Colt didn't have to follow them all over the place!
We have a driveway that's about straight up and down but it makes for some good sledding this time of year! Kolby wanted to go "again Daddy, again!"

Kyson did not want to participate in the sledding so he watched out the window. Hopefully I can talk him into it one of these days and he can see how much fun it is.

Uncle Kelvie came up to visit and entertained the boys with many rounds of hide-and-seek and anything else Kyson could think up. Kolby was mostly just interested in his hat as he is with most guys and hats.

I kid you not, the moment Colt sits down on the couch this is what happens! Kyson truly believes he is a jungle gym I'm starting to think!
We are super excited for Christmas and wish it would hurry up and get here! Happy Holidays everyone!

Kolby puts this basket on his head everyday and walks around saying "helmet man," he is kind of a strange duck.

Ridin' the Range

It was SUCH a nice day today so we decided to take a little horse ride up at Grandpa Stevie's. Kolby could have gone forever but Kyson was a little squished in the saddle. I hope this isn't too personal, but I said, "Are you ok buddy, are you too squished?" And he said, "No, but my wee-wee's stuck." Oh, he makes me laugh!


So I have been wanting to carve pumpkins for weeks now and we have just never done it. Last night, finally, it really happened! (I get super excited about holidays these days- I think it has something to do with these two little boys!) So Colt was not really chipper about the whole idea but he got pretty serious when it came down to it. The sad thing is he sort of ruined his- it was supposed to be a circle with a skull inside but he accidentally cut just a big circle out instead:) The boys did pumpkin "tattoos" since their pumpkins were a litte shriveled from getting snowed on a while ago.

Happy Hunting!

Colt's Antelope
Kyson & Kolby already think life revolves around hunting- every time Colt is gone somewhere they assume he's hunting and Kolby thinks there is a "dee" in the back of every truck.
Our dog's first bird :)
My cute little three-point!
I get two pictures because this was my first one ;)
As of about August sometime my husband has been hunting pretty much non-stop and still has one more animal to go. I never really understand what makes men get up at four in the morning, walk for miles, freeze their tails off, eat granola bars all day and then get up and do it again the next day- but, he loves it and I am happy that he has something he absolutely enjoys. I joined in a little bit this year and shot my first deer- wahoo! I am surprised how much fun it really was and I might even do it again! I have shot a gun a whole two times in my life so it was a little scary but of course Colt did most of the work and I pulled the trigger and got it with one shot! Here are the pictures of our harvests:)

My Little Jabber-Jaw

Ok, so usually Kolby is an excellent sleeper and if he does wake up at all he pops his binkie back in and back to sleep he goes. So... last night I hear him yell, "Colt, Colt, bottoe (bottle), bottoe." I give him a few seconds and he yells, "Mommy, mommy," so then I can't ignore him and I go in, give him his binkie, snuggle his blanket on him and think he's back asleep. A few minutes later... same thing. I give him his binkie again and go back to bed. A few minutes later... same thing. Well, obviously he's not going back to sleep so I ask him if he wants to rock and of course he says yes. I start rocking him and he asks me to sing him "boons," his favorite balloon song. After only a few words of the song there is a noise outside and he immediately says, "Koda." Which is our dog and then, "kennel" and then, "peek." Knowing full well he would not let it rest until he got to peek at Koda in the kennel I opened the garage door and let him see the dog. Well, Colt's van sometimes beeps when a battery dies on one of his window tools and of course it was beeping last night and Kolby cannot stand to let it just beep without telling Colt about it and making him fix it so he kept saying, "beep, beep, Colt, Colt." Thankfully, and not thankfully, he soon spotted the deer Colt shot the night before hanging in our garage (very Wyoming-ish, I know) and freaked out about it too. He is VERY obsessed with "dee" and then began saying, "dee, hang it, cut it, dee" and anything else he could rattle off. I gave up on the rocking situation and decided to lay in Kyson's bed with him (since Kyson feels that our bed is his private little sleeping area most nights anyway). He wanted to jump on the bed, take things off the walls, and go see where Ky Ky and Daddy were. At this point I was kind of laughing to myself because he was sooo not tired and I could tell his little brain was going a million miles an hour trying to think of something else to say and do instead of going to bed. I was actually pretty entertained by him and I went in to tell Colt to come lay by him so he could listen to all the stuff he was saying but he didn't think it was as funny as I did and just kept on sleeping. Next, he sat straight up and said, "eggs, dinna, drink." I said, "Are you hungry?" Of course he said, "Yeah, Yeah." Not knowing if he really was hungry or just avoiding sleeping yet again I thought I should probably feed him or I would feel horrible if that was the reason he couldn't go to sleep. So, there I sat, feeding him a bowl of chicken noodle soup and glass of milk at two o'clock in the morning! I had no other options to make him go to sleep and I had filled up his tummy so I didn't feel guilty anymore so I layed him down in his crib, kicking and screaming. He cried for a few minutes and Colt went in and patted his back and gave him his binkie and what do you know- right to sleep! One more random thing he decided to go off on for a while also is that his binkie had a hair on it- this happened one time a very long time ago and he thinks there is a hair on it about every other time he takes it, just for something to say I believe. He just cracks me up lately, everything he learns and repeats and does and says! It would just be a whole lot better at noon or some other normal hour of the day!

Just Pics

Do I have something on my face???
Ice cream cones...
Or the whole bucket of ice cream!


Kyson only wanted to see the zebras but this
is also his new "cheese-it" face.

There's no pictures from the circus Friday night although I made a huge effort to bring the camera, and extra batteries even, but when I pulled it out of my purse to snap some there were actually no batteries in it at all! Oh well, I did manage to take some with the cell phones after about a thousand tries. We headed out to the circus Friday night and stopped for dinner- which wasn't the best experience I've ever had. Restaurants are not the best places for rowdy little boys anyhow, but for some reason Kyson and Kolby were particularly crazy this night. I don't remember how many drinks were spilled or how many times we pulled them off the table but it was quite a few! The circus was fun, I think I was more excited about it than the kids or Colt but it really was fun. Kolby was not really entertained by the whole thing and mostly just wanted to get in and out of his folding chair the entire time but at least he was having a good time doing that. Kyson loved it but we were all tired and left before it was actually over and went back to the Little America to spend the night. After about an hour of both children singing themselves to sleep (which I love) we actually had a peaceful night's sleep. It's always a little scary wondering if your kids are going to sleep or freak out in a new place. We then headed to the zoo for Makell's birthday which I was also very excited about- I have been wanting to go all summer but my country-boy husband does not believe there is any reason in the whole entire world good enough to go to Salt Lake :) I just like to see how happy the little kids get to see the animals. Happy Birthday Makelly! Thanks for the fun day!

Ok, I never get this right, but anyway, these pictures go with the last post.


We went, with my family, for a little one-night camping trip up to the Uinta's and had a very fabulous time. We left Friday evening with my parents and sister and my other brother and sister met us there later that night. Kyson and Kolby thought the camper was thee greatest thing ever- we borrowed it from Grandpa Stevie and Kyson spent every second in it until we had to leave. We just hung out and threw tons of rocks in the river then roasted hot dogs and marshmallows for dinner. Kyson's marshmallows started on fire which he thought was pretty dang cool. It was way cold during the night and in the morning but thank heavens everyone slept just fine (except me, I had a little freaking out moment of claustrophobia in the top bunk :) and we had a toasty fire going in the morning! Colt had to come back to work the next day but the rest of us drove up to Lily Lake and fished and had lunch- I'm sad summer is ending because I want to do it again!
