Ok, so I had a few people tell me to update my blog, so here it is, a whole couple of months worth! Hope you all like the updates! Sure love you all and if I don't get to blogging again before christmas(which is most likely) I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Kaden is being such a big helper! We made pepperment bark and had to smash candy canes. We tried to blend them but that didn't work so much, so we smashed them with a hammer (while they were still in the plastic so they didn't get all over). We had so much fun! Kaden is so good. He only hit his hand once!!!


Kaden is always being so helpful. He gave Talbot way to much though and a few minutes later Talbot threw it all up. Gross!!! But at least he tries to be helpful!


I don't know what Talbots problem is, but he thinks that this is so fun to stick his hand down his diaper!!!


This is a floral arrangment I did for a friend.

The Larsen Family Fundraiser

Some of you know Daryl and Ashley Larsen. For those of you who don't, they are a young couple here in Perry, who just lost their baby to a rare lung disorder. Their loss is truly a tragedy. They are now experiencing the beginnings of what will be a land slide of medical bills. In an effort to aide them, there will be a one day fundraiser at the Maddox Steak House. On November 5, you can call Maddox at 723-2916 and order the Turkey Steak dinner. You can choose the 2 or 4 family meal at the regular price. All proceeds will then be donated to the Larsen family. You do need to remember to mention the Larsen family name when ordering. You can then pick up your meal at the take out window in the back of Maddox. It will be for lunch and dinner. Please spread the word. Feel free to copy and paste this post on your blog.

praying mantis

We found a prayin mantis outside and Kaden had so much fun with it, except when it was on his neck. Talbot tried squishing it, but it was fun to see them with it

Kadens foot

I don't know why, but Kaden wanted me to take a picture of his foot. Weirdo!!

Day out with daddy

Kaden and Talbot both got to ride with daddy in the big semi truck. They both had so much fun!

All about me

Well, I decided to really try this thing out! What fun it is to see everyone on the web! Well, life has been so much fun so far. Kody and I met while we were on our missions in Alabama. He was my district leader(and no it wasn't like what you think). We did our mission thing and didn't think much of each other. After we both came home a bunch of mission buddies wanted to get together. They put me in charge(for some reason) and I tried to get as many people together as I could. The plan was for everyone to meet at a bowling alley in Salt Lake, but it was a blizzard and not very many people showed up(including Kody). It didn't hurt me much and I didn't think much about it until I got a letter from him a few weeks later. He said he was sorry for not coming and had lost my phone number so he couldn't call me. So we tried again to hang out. That was January of 2004. By April we were engaged and married on August 5th, 2004. When we were moving into our apartment we came across a box that had my phone number on it. No wonder why he couldn't find it. I can't believe how time just flies by! We had our first kid, Kaden Kody on August 20th, 2005( a day before Kerianda had her first). Our second child, Talbot D. was born April 23rd, 2007(10 days after Keriandas second kid). Ya, we planned that. Why does everyone ask that? We just call each other up and say "it's time"!! I think that is so funny that everyone says that.
Kody works for a trucking company "Tramcor". His dads distant cousins own the company, which makes it nice for him to work with family. His dad also drives for the company and his brother Kacey is one of the mechanics for the company. It has always been his dream to drive truck. And it's nice for him to love what he does because he always comes home with a smile on his face! He is usually home every night and that makes it nice.
I just stay home and take care of the kids. That has always been my dream. And it is so much fun. Earlier this year I was diagnosed as being bipolar. It has been a pretty rough road the last few months trying to adjust to the medicine, but if it weren't for family and friends and ward members who are always willing to help, I wouldn't be doing as well as I have. I am so grateful for that.
Well, that's us in a nutshell. Living and loving life!!


Kaden loves his pancakes. That is about the only thing that he will eat. At least the are whole wheat ones, so they are somewhat healthy. He has to be the one that makes them though. He pours the mix, mixes it up, sprays the pan, pours the batter in the pan, and turns the pancakes(with a little of moms help). Pretty soon he'll be making me breakfast in bed(at least I hope, he he)

Last Day

This was the last full day we had in Florida. We loved the ocean so much that we went again. It was so much fun! Here's Kody, Talbot and Kaden enjoying the sun and sand!!

upside down

Take a close look. Yes, the building is upside down!! And it was actually built this way!! It surely made you take a second glance as you were driving past it.


Kaden and Talbot had so much fun at the hotel too. We stayed at a resort, which was so nice because we were able to relax even more!! Universal Studios also had Dr. Suess theme rides.

universal studios

We had so much fun at universal studios in Orlando, Florida. Pictured are Kody, Kurliston, Kaden and Talbot in front of the universal studios sign. Kaden got to meet curios george!! He loved that a lot. Talbot not so much, but they both had lot's of fun.


Here we are at the ocean in Florida. Kaden and Talbot loved playing in the sand. Kaden also loved playing in the water. It was so warm!! Talbot got tired of the ocean real quick though and fell asleep in the sand!! Poor kid! Kolter also had fun in the water!!


This year we went to Florida on vacation. We spent 8 days there. It was such a blast!! Here is Kaden in the plane, which he just loved!! The day after we got there we went to the ocean. I think that was probably the best part of the whole vacation!! At least for me!


Here we are at the Weber County fair. Kaden loved riding the rides, the horses and seeing the animals. He even got to milk a cow!! At the fair this year they had horseshoe crabs and stingrays!! They even got to touch them!!
