USC game and Evan's blessing

So I'm still trying to catch up because we've done so much fun stuff lately. On Nov 1st Rob, Nate, and I got to go to a USC game. USC is Rob's favorite football team. I have endured, I mean enjoyed, many many USC games on TV, but now yet any live. So we got tickets from Rob's work buddy and were so excited. It was so fun and we loved the rain cause we got panchos...sexy. It was a blowout game. USC won 50 something to 0. Whooohoo! The next day we got to go to Evan Parker Struebing's blessing. It was awesome to be there. He is such a lucky boy, he has great parents, a great home, lots of love, and the gospel in his life. We had such a great time. And are excited to see him grow.

Pumpkin Patch

Just wanted to post some cute pics from the pumpkin patch. My sister Michelle is the best photographer ever and I can't wait until she can take the cutest pics of my kids. Anyway enjoy. These are all of my neices and nephews and Bruiser.

Trick or Treat

So I know its been a little while since I posted last so...I'm going to catch up. We had so much fun on Halloween, we dressed up like M & M's, peanut and plain, and went over to eat, party, and trick or treat with the Parkins. It was so fun. I love seeing all the cute kids dressed up and having so much fun. Even Bruiser dressed up :).

I tried to make cute witch cupcake, they didn't turn out as cute as I had hoped, but thats ok because witches are supposed to be ugly.

Check it out...Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber

Michelle and Tony didn't dress up...lame

Moving Back!! :)

Yay! We are moving back to California on Friday and I'm really excited. I will miss Arizona alot! Especially the great friends that we've made here and the awesome ward. I don't think there are any others like it. But we have to go, Rob needs to take a few more classes to get into PA school and I am going to go back to school to become a math teacher. Another Bachelors Degree never hurt anyone and hey maybe I can get some more graduation presents...haha jk. Rob got his job at Neck and Back Medical Center back and I will be working at Islands and substitute teaching. We are going to be living with Rob's parents which will be a great help for us to be able to save up for PA school. Plus we will be able to get Disney Land passes and go to Diddy Reeses Cookie Factory. My favorite place to eat :), well besides the sushi place in Lake Forest. I miss sushi alot and the beach. Anyway, we are excited to see our friends and family in CA and we are so happy we have so many awesome people to help us unpack. I hadn't posted in a while and I wanted to update everyone. Thanks for all your love and support. I will post again when we are in CA.

Memory Tag!

I haven't done anything like this before, so I hope it works. Tag...You're it!

1. Add a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

Yay! I love blogging.

The Lake with the Newtons

So, on Saturday we got to go to the Lake with the Newtons. We had so much fun! We love hanging out with them and we love wakeboarding, so it was a sure thing. Ella and Kailey were so cute and fun! I wish I could have seen Kailey wakesurf. I haven't been wakeboarding in a year or two and I was nervous at first but it turned out ok... Next time I'll try a backflip, haha, jk. I want to say thanks to Jason and Andrea for the best time. Here are some pics of our day.

My favorite picture of Ella. So cute!

Rob flipped off the cliff. If you look closely you can see, he's crazy!

Rob and I...We love the lake.

This is a video of me wakeboarding...I'm not so good...but it was sooo much fun!

Here is Rob wakeboarding, well at least one jump. He did awesome for one of his first times wakeboarding. He's normally a wakesurfer.

Playing in Puddles

Recently we started experiencing some serious monsoons. We are just sitting in our living room and all the sudden it starts pooring rain and sometimes there's crazy thunder and lighting. I love it sooo much! I think its the best thing in the world because you get to play in all the huge puddles. Rob was smart and wore his bathing suit, while I, not so smart, got soaked in my pjs. And Bruiser...didn't want to be left out, but I don't think he liked it very much.

4th of July Weekend

Sorry, this is really late, but I have some really cute pictures from our 4th of July in California. We had so such fun hanging out with our families. It all started with a pool party and watching fireworks from my parents balcony. It was so awesome we could see like 15 firework shows all at once. Then we got to go to my niece Brittany's baptism, we are so proud and excited for her. This was a great experience and the spirit was very strong that night. I can only imagine what it would be like to baptize one of your own children. After we had a party and we all had a blast. Some of my favorite pics are below. I have so many more but i didn't know if you all would want to see like 3o more pics. :)
I love this picture with the boys. I think that everyone had a good time with the dog, especially Jack. :)
Family picture.Crack the egg. That poor kid got launched.
Kira loves "Lizard". That is how she pronounced Bruiser. Its hilarious. She is so cute!
My little Maddy! I love her so much!
My 3 cute nieces. Finally I got a picture.
Our birthday/baptism girl.The boys.

Wonton vs. Bruiser

So...Wonton and Bruiser have been sort of getting along, besides Bruiser chasing Wonton all around the house, I want to tell Wontong that bruiser is only1/4 his size. Surprising enough I think Wonton (our cat) secretly likes Bruiser (our dog) because he walks up and sniffs him all the time while he's sleeping and He comes out alot more then He did before. Here are some pictures of the battle. It's kind of a story.
Awww...brothers <3The battle begins...
Bruiser won and collected all the winnings. He's not very good at sharing.Night. Night bruiser.

Our new puppy...Bruiser to the rescue!!!!!

Yesterday we got a new puppy! He's a chi-poo half chihuahua and half poodle, but don't worry he's more chihuahua. The best part is I'm not really allergic to bruiser and Wonton has been sort of getting along with him. He's only 7 weeks old and weighs about 1 lb. They said he will probably get up to 6 lbs, unless he gets super fat like Wonton. He likes his belly scratched.

Bruisers getting used to his crate, well sort of. I have to bribe him with treats. Can't wait for you to meet him.

The best year of my life!

Today is my one year wedding anniversary to my wonderful hubby Rob. This year has been so happy and so much fun. It has had many ups and very few downs and I wouldn't trade it for anything. When we first got married I didn't think I could love Rob anymore, but I love him so much more now. He is kind, thoughtful, loving, caring, generous, and so much more. I will live the rest of my life trying to be as wonderful as he is. He is so good to me, he planned this awesome weekend for us at the Arizona Biltmore. He said I have a surprise weekend planned and I asked where were were going and he said to Phoenix. :) I thought that was funny, but it ended up being perfect. The hotel was beautiful and right when we got there the lady at the front desk upgraded us to a huge room and send us chocolate covered strawberries and a cute note wishing us a Happy Anniversary.
The rest of the weekend we spent at the pool sliding down the awesome slide! It was the best, except all the little kids kept cutting...hahaha! jk


We had so much fun on Saturday night when went to one of our favorite restaurants CPK and saw Get Smart and loved it. I thought it was an awesome movie! Soooo funny I give it 5 stars. Sorry if this is dragging on and on, I'm just gonna put some pics of our hotel because it was soo beautiful built in the 1920s. Anyways, good times!

Happy Anniversary honey! I love you!!!
