The kids look forward to this Family Home Evening every year, because dad gets out the drill and goes to town on these pumpkins. It really is a sight to see. :)

Ryllie and Cy's birthday party!

For Ryllie and Cy's birthday party, we decided to rent out the "sticky shoe" dollar movie theatre. When we got there, the janitors had not come so the theatres were disgustingly dirty. After some effort from the poor highschool students that work the concessions, we got the theatres picked up a little (and yes, they gave me a refund). After the little fiasco at the beginning of the party, the rest went great! The kids loved it, and I think I will do it again. No mess at home, the kids have fun, and it was actually pretty affordable to rent! The picture of Cy isn't great, but it was the only one I took there, oh well!

Ryllie gets her ears pierced

Ryllie is turning 8 next week, so she had the choice of whether or not she wants to get her ears pierced. No surprise that she wanted them pierced and was ancy and anxious and asking me to take her over and over. When we got to the mall she was a little scared and almost backed out, but she somehow decided to be brave and has some really cute earrings to show it! Love you Ryllie!

Deer Hunt 2009

We always have fun with the Hansen crew (and Corey) when we go down to Torrey for the so called "deer hunt". This year was especially fun because Kenice and her family were able to come down for a night. We enjoyed the gorgeous weather (we have lucked out for about 3 years in a row!) and I enjoyed time to read. I finished the Hunger Games, and Catching Fire, really good reads by the way! Casey, Adam, and Alec actually hunted this year! So the rest of us hung out at the lake, and let the kids fish, and then Kenice & I took kids on a drive through part of Capitol Reef National Park. Corey cooked us up delicious meals again, and we look forward to his cooking every year. And the kids enjoyed having lots of cousins to play with!

Pumpkin Patch in Payson!

Thanks to Uncle Tylor and Aunt Julie (and Aunt Julie's dad) for letting us come out to their pumpkin patch for family night and pick pumpkins out of their garden. The kids had a blast picking out their own perfect pumpkin! And thanks to Aunt Mitsy for making us amazing oriental salads and letting us come visit. Hey Tyrel, the drive was totally worth it! :) What a fun Family Home Evening!

My Disneyland Trip- by Ryllie

This picture is when we went to Circus Circus. I love going to win toys with dad!

I got to bring pumpkin pie, my rally monkey to the Angels game. Daddy took us to the game for fun, and we got to eat hotdogs and drink sodas.

I was scared to go on the Tower of Terror, and after I went on it I realized this was my new favorite ride! After making a scene, I ended up riding it about 10 more times!

It was fun to have my cousins there and having someone to hang out with the whole time we were there.

I liked the all you can eat hotdogs, nachos, and sodas at the Dodgers game.

Here is me and Hailey riding the Maliboomer, it is just like the Rocket at Lagoon.

I had fun having Maddux with me, and she was the one who kept me company every night in the hotel!

My Disneyland Trip- by Maddux

We went to Angel's studio (I mean stadium). We went to Amy's house and played with her kids and swam in her pool and it was in California. At Disneyland I went on the Tower Hotel. It was fun! I remember I went on the Buzz Lightyear ride and mostly I had fun. I went on the Nemo ride with just dad, and he said it was a secret and not to tell mom, cause she had been wanting to go on it, and he kept saying he didn't want to wait in line, then just me and him went and snuck on it! In Hollywood we stopped for food and we were all playing "Big Eyes", and this picture is me and Ryllie doing "big eyes". At the Dodgers game I liked dancing after the game was over. My trip to Disneyland was fun!

My Disneyland Trip- by Cy

The drive to California went pretty fast.

I really liked the ball games too!
Hollywood? I don't remember much about that place.
Disneyland, the Happiest Place on Earth!

Jedi training was worth waking up for!

Wait a second! When did my best buddy Nate get here?

My Disneyland Trip- by Hadlie

My first trip to California was great! Disneyland was cool. I got to hang out with my dad a lot, and ride rides. My favorite ride was "It's a small world", even though I can't say words, I sang at the top of my lungs through the whole ride. Mostly I was happy as long as there was food in my hands. My mom put this tether thing on me, and told daddy to take me to buy a sucker or something. My daddy let me pick out the one I wanted, so I picked the one that was bigger than my head. So that tether thing, I didn't like it much so I threw a fit, and ended up winning after about 10 minutes of having it on, but I was a good girl and stayed by my family and didn't run off too many times. I liked the baseball games, especially the game where dad bought me my monkey. I learned how to say Cy's name, but it comes out sounding like "Ice", so we named my monkey Ice. I slept for most of the ride through Hollywood, but after lunch and some soda I was ready for the Dodgers game. People kept chanting "Let's go dodgers" and then they would clap. So I joined in, only thing is, everyone else had stopped so I looked pretty silly yelling really loud, and everyone laughed. I didn't really like wearing my shoes, so I kept taking them off, and even lost a shoe. My mom finally gave up putting them back on me, and I was free to wiggle my toes! I loved the beach too. My mom says Aunt Kaysha took pictures at the beach and she still hasn't gotten them from her, but trust me, I was cute as can be! What a fun vacation!
