Draper Temple Open House!

The Draper Temple open house. We had such a great experience, the kids were amazing and seemed to feel the Spirit that was there. Our Favorites:
Ryan-The Baptism Font, it was really open and you just stood in awe of the beauty of it.
Chelsi- The Brides Room was absolutely gorgeous, there is a mirror with 3 parts and without planning each of my girls was standing in a section (Jaxsyn in her dad's arms) looking in the mirror it definitely brought me to tears.
Samantha- The chandeliers which were amazing. And the Brides Room.
Ashlynn- The chandeliers.
Coleman- The Baptismal Font & the mirrors in the sealing room (he says that was cool).
Jaxsyn- The swimming pool, "I go swimming there!" AKA the Baptismal Font

Ryan's, Aunt Anne was here visiting for Brittany's last game cheer leading. We invited her to join us to the open house. It was fun to see her and Megan her daughter joined us as well. Ashlynn has always really loved Auntie Anne!

Ice Skating FHE

A fun Family Home Evening! Ice Skating!

Look at those cute kids, and they even had skates for Jaxsyn!

Sam did great and had so much fun! Coleman was getting pretty good, the goal like thing is what they have for the kids to learn how to skate.

Ashlynn didn't last long she got a blister. Jaxsyn skated for 30 seconds and freaked out. But the skates looked cute on her.

Valentine's Day!

Valentine Fairy strikes again! Pink pancakes with chocolate chips (Ryan's specialty) & juice for breakfast! The kids got mittens, candy & money (rather than a bunch of little crappy V-day toys)! Ryan & I don't celebrate Valentine's because we tell each other everyday how much we love each other aaaannnddd I'm cheap and would rather not get 100 dollar flowers or wait for 4 hours to each dinner with my hubby. So we stay home and got out a different night!

Ryan & Chelsi in Disneyworld!!

Ryan's work had a trade show in Florida so our friends Dennis & Rick were going to be working there. They invited their wives and Ryan ended up needing to make some stops in Florida too so we (Ryan & I) tagged along for their trip. It was a short trip we flew out on Sat morning and I flew home on Tues morning. We played at Disneyworld on Sunday 9am-9pm!

The next day we went to Hollywood Studios again 9am-9pm!! Wow those were 2 looong days! We loved the Rockin' Rollar Coaster & the Tower of Terror!!!

How to save money the embarrassing way!

#1 Go shopping (with coupons of course!)
#2 Start checking out.
#3 Have the cashier give you a total.
#4 Grab your wallet to pay and find that your debit card is gone.
#5 Ask your two year old who had been playing with your wallet "did you take mommy's credit card?" Her answer "Yep I borrowed it, I wanted to play with it." Where did you put it? "In my kitchen in my bedroom!" What color is it? "Brown" she was right, I was just making sure she really took it!
#6 Dig in your purse to find 2 dollars to pay your bill without having to put 1.76 on your credit card. I did have a gift card to cover the other $40 that's why the total was so small.
The cashier was a man who did not find this funny, like any woman would have.
We got home and Jaxsyn walked right upstairs and grabbed the card out of her room. It was so funny & cute!!!
