Temple Square 2011

This is the coolest thing ever! We could have looked at it all night.

This is Eric's favorite tree, it is a cedar of Lebanon. They only put lights on it every other year because it is quite rare.

My boys in front of the Nativity scene.

I love this Nativity on the reflecting pond, it is beautiful.

Turns out that 5pm is the best time to be there, hardly anybody out yet.

I cannot believe I didn't take any pictures this year! I went searching and found this picture of E from Thanksgiving 2002 (I think). We ate dinner at my Grandma Kroff's house that year and I remember my Aunt Julie made a really yummy dish that had apples and sweet potatoes in it.

This year (2011) we had dinner at my Mom and Dad's house. Colby & Marcie, Angie & her dogs, and me and my family were there and of course we had more pies than we knew what to do with. The boys had a sleepover at grandma's with Aunt Angie and of course did not sleep very well and were up bright and early at 6:30am, much to Aunt Angie's dismay. My boys (except Ry) are early birds like their Grandpa Ron and their dad.

I am so thankful for the life I live. I know that I have struggles and sometimes I think my life is pretty tough, but in all actuality I have nothing I should complain about. I am grateful for the knowledge I have of my Heavenly Father's kindness, mercy and love.

Halloween 2011

I'm pretty sure Ry has been Batman for the past 3 Halloweens... oh well, it makes life easy for me! E was a ghost pirate and Arch was... I dunno really.. We went trick-or-treating on Main street then came back to our house to eat dinner. After dinner we let the kids out to terrorize the neighborhood.

2011 Kroff Reunion

The first day of the reunion Ryder and his cousin Urban celebrated thier birthdays! I totally ripped off the idea for Ryder's cake from my friend Stacee, thanks girlie!!

Eric spotted movement in the grass next to our was a baby rattle snake!!! He caught it and showed it off to everyone there.. The boys voted to let it go, I voted to kill it!!! But in the end Eric took it a couple miles away and let it go.

Ryder got stung twice by a very angry wasp, once between the fingers and once on the side of this face..stupid wasps anyway.

My cousin's wife does balloon twisting and it was a hit!! Ryder got a very sharp sword, a helmet and a sword belt.

Archer requested this awesome octopus.

This is what it all about.. hanging out with family by the fire.

This is our little camping area, very nice! Being the indoor girl I am, I left camp each night to sleep in my own bed but returned bright and early each morning to be with my family.

Happy 4th Ryder!

Four years ago today Eric and I were outside walking around our yard and I looked at Eric and told him that it would be a good day to have a baby! We went to the hospital around 10am or so and Ryder was born at around 6:30pm. We are so thankful he came to our family!

He loves life and is a very funny kid. WE LOVE YOU RYDER ROO!!
