family pictures in backyard

Today we had it all planned to go up the canyon to take some family pictures but by the time Jerry came home from work it was just getting too dark so we tried to do a few in the back yard, not all of them came out, but we did get a few.

Fall in full bloom!

 Last night we took a trip a couple of miles up the road for family home evening to Butterfield Canyon, It was absolutely beautiful!! 

We saw several deer, that always puts a smile on our face :)

Me and the boys

Joey had a blast with all the leaves, we were barely able to tear him away!

Guess what Joeys been up to?

You've guessed it! NOTHING!! Joey has been off track now for 3 weeks and sometimes he gets really bored so I try to have him read an hour a day, which he likes to do once he starts but his favorite thing is playing his DSI and the WII games. But on Thursday night he has been taking these classes on "reading your environment"  it is a two hour class and I didn't know how well he would do with that but he likes it! Yippee!

Cowboy Chris???

Gosh I remember not too long ago Christopher hated I mean hated any country music, but this last year he started working on this farm near our home run by a great family (Hamilton's) and since then he's becoming very interested in horses and they have been teaching him to ride, well a couple of  weeks ago he came home and said "mom I need cowboy boots and a cowboy hat" I couldn't believe it, it just cracked me up I never thought I'd hear those words out of his mouth, he claimed he needs them for working on the farm. Chris is probably one of the bravest kids I know and is not one bit self conscience, then what topped it off he asked if we knew who Garth brooks was and it was like music to Jerry's ears! I do believe Jerry was in heaven that is his favorite music. Now Chris is learning a ton of country songs which is perfect for his range and is having a blast learning to be a real cowboy! here he is on his way to work which he will be rounding up about a dozen horses today!!! He still cracks me up! How fun it must be to be Chris.
