Halloween.. in April!

Halloween is one of my very favorite Holidays! Derek and Coop really like it too! This year Derek picked to dress up as the Red Power Ranger, and Coop was Mike from Monsters Inc. I love these cute boys so much!

 We also had a lot of fun at the pumpkin patch picking out pumpkins!

Hmmm...I think we'll go make pumpkin cookies now, even though it's April, haha!!


We love Holidays! It's so fun to sort of "forget" about the ordinary things we do every day and celebrate! We love having fun times together and Holiday are always sure to bring lots of fun times!

We love Halloween! Here is Derek carving his own pumpkin! ...I have a lot more Halloween pictures, but I can't find them! Hopefully I can find them and post them...before next Halloween, haha!

 We were so excited to have a real Christmas tree this year! It smelled so good!!
 Letters to Santa!
 We always put our letters to Santa in the "elf mailbox." One of Santa's elves takes our letters and leaves a small surprise for the boys!
 Decorating a gingerbread house!
 Christmas morning!! I love those sweet, smiling faces!!
 My favorite boys with our dog Luna! Derek has wanted a dog for so long, and we kept telling him we would get a dog when we had a house! As soon as we moved into our house he asked us: "When are we getting a dog?" haha! We got two doggies as part of our family Christmas present!
 New Years Eve! We started a new tradition this year: A New Year's Tree! ( I got the idea from Our Best Bites!) We decorated it with balloons and crepe paper and the boys thought it was so much fun to pop the balloons and find money inside some of them!
 Another new tradition: Time capsules! We had a lot of fun making these and I think the boys will have so much fun opening them this New Years eve!

 Our family! Coop thought we were doing a "funny face" picture! Oh, and here is our other dog Phineas too!

California Trip!

When Derek had spring break we headed to California to visit Grandpa Miyake! We were so excited because Mom and Dad Miyake were there at the same time!!

 I love this family picture!!

 Both of the boys went for a pony ride and loved it!!

 We went to the Sacrament Children's Museum! It was really cute! We love going to places like this!!

We love being able to visit with family!! We are really lucky to have such a GREAT family!!

Random Fun!!

I realized recently that I haven't posted anything on our blog for a long time!! Here are some of the fun things we've been up to!!

The zoo!
We really love going to the zoo! It never gets old! I could seriously sit and watch the polar bear all day!!

 It was so cool to see the wolves up close!
 We went to the dinosaur museum at Thanksgiving Point!

 When we have a house, we should have one of these!! The boys could dig for bones in the sand for hours, haha!!
 Playing with Daddy!! These guys love to rough house and wrestle with Ry!! And Coop thinks that anytime Ryan is laying down, that means time for a body slam, haha!!

 One of our favorite activities: the Easter egg hunt!! I think this is Derek's favorite holiday activity!!
It was Weston's first egg hunt!! I think he liked it!

 The weather was against us this day, so we did the egg hunt inside. But it worked out great! The kids had a blast!!
 Granny - a willing participant in the egg hunt!! Thanks Gran, you are a good sport!!
 Happy boys!! Oh, I love their sweet smiles!!

 Yummmmm! A plastic dinosaur, haha!!
 Cute Granny and Cute Erica!!
