Thanksgiving trip to Monticello

During the trip down south we went to Moab for the day. Sawyer loved the sand hill and was completely covered with red sand.

The whole family hiked to the Delicate Arch. I have never been and it was a good hike. Rob told Sawyer we had to stay on the trails and not touch or the "TH's" would be mad. Sawyer asked what it was and Rob told him is was a tree hugger and that they were really weird. So we pull up and park the car and Rob says Sawyer look right next to us they are TH's. I quickly replied Rob if you tell Sawyer that he will call them that and embarass everyone! Rob then had to explain we can't call them that to their face.(Which was even better!) During the hike I over hear Sawyer asking one of his cousins, "Do you know what a TH is? I do it's someone who is mean and hugs trees!" I guess Rob hasn't learned you don't tell Sawyer something unless it's safe for everyone to hear. Sawyer will repeat every.

Taytem had the good life in the Kelti (thanks Sarah!!)

This was our gang hanging out getting ready for the hike back.

Our cute family at the base of the Arch

Auntie Kenneth!! We love him not only does he do amazing hair(mine) he is a lot of fun.

Sawyer off hiking away. This was Sawyer's first time really hiking.

Taytem had such a good time on Dad's back, she would play with his hair, rub his neck and my favorite spit all of the back of his neck!

Gage and Sawyer, Sawyer loves to go to Monticello mainly to play with Gage these two are together non-stop the whole trip. They have sleepovers, swim in the pool and get lost for hours down in Grandma Adam's basement. We wish Gage lived closer.

Rob, Taytem and his sister Sumer and Emery

We got to the base of where we were to hike and everyone was piling out of the cars. Sawyer got in one of his moods and decided that he wanted jeans to wear like everyone else. He was so mad and didn't want to get out of the car or go on the hike. Of course he didn't say anything while I was getting him dressed or while we were eating breakfast at Grandma's or when we went back to the hotel to get a few things, or even at the store in Moab. It wasn't until we were there ready to hike. He complained and told me how stupid the hike and everything about it was until about one-third of the way up, then he ran up with all the kids and I didn't hear from him about the jeans the rest of the day!

This year we went to Monticello for Thanksgiving with the Adams Family. It is always fun to go and see all of the cousins, aunts, uncles, and Grandpa and Grandma and Grandma Pearl who last time asked who the Hell I was! She's 90 and doesn't quite remember very well. Then on the other hand is Grandpa Lynn who can remember my name, Sawyers and Taytems and how old everyone is. My favorite is Grandpa Lynn is a total cowboy but boy does he love to golf! Not to mention the little 'ol town of Monticello population 15oo(Maybe!)
This is cute Emery and Jade, who are my little shadow!!

Taytem playing with her cousin Kooper who is only three days younger than her.

It's fun to see these two and how big they are getting. Kooper can crawl and will walk with help. Taytem will do neither!

We had a good time eating lots of good food and hanging out with the family.

9 mos. old

I decided to try and take some more pictures of Taytem. She is now 9 months old and I can't believe how big she has gotten!
Her favorite thing right now is her foot! She loves eating her toes.

She wasn't quite sure what I was doing hence the look on her face.

I love her smile.

I've had this hat for quite awhile meaning to take pics of her in it, I have finally got around to it.
