Spa Day!

Brooklyn has been reading a book series called "Sparkle Spa." For her book report project she wanted to have a spa day and do pedicures for her sisters. It turned out to be a fun afternoon and we all had beautiful toes afterwards!

Last Easter the girls all got these Sequin Art crafts. Each sequin is put in with a tiny pin...one by one. They've worked on them ever since! Brielle finally was able to get hers finished and it turned out SO cute!!! She was pretty proud of herself that she did it all by herself!

Festival of Trees

This year my mom and Rachelle were in charge of designing the tree. They went with an angel themed tree and it turned out to be a beautiful tree. We enjoyed spending the day together and always enjoy honoring Samantha in this way.

Since Ryon and Jana were in town we joined up with them to go swimming in Lehi. The kids had a blast and the adults enjoyed sitting around talking.

We were with my family this year for Thanksgiving. We spent the day at my parent's church. We had so many fun things for the kids to do, which allowed for all the adults to spend time catching up. It was an enjoyable day with SO much good food and fun company.

Brayden's Birthday

Such a fun and busy day! Brayden headed off to school excited to finally be 12! After school I picked the kids up and headed off to Nikelmania. We surprised Brayden and stopped to pick up Dodger. They had a blast playing the arcades. Brayden hit the jackpot on one of the games and got the 800 ticket bonus! It was fun to see how happy he was while the machine put out all his tickets. After we were done we headed to Draper to meet up with family at his favorite place...Teriyaki Grill. We got there a little early so I had just enough time to get Brayden a haircut. Dinner was awesome as always and Brayden also opened all his gifts. He was SO surprised for his big gift...an authentic Donovan Mitchell jersey. Happy birthday bud! We sure love you!

We got together a few days before Brayden's birthday to celebrate with the Ericsons. Brayden has been looking forward to turning 12 for months. It was fun to celebrate early!

Dance Party!

What do you get when you have 4 Ericson girls and 3 Jensen girls that all love to dance??? A night full of choreographing a dance show for us! Josh and Brayden were at the BYU game, so Marc and I had planned on taking them all out for dinner, but they didn't want to leave. So we ended up getting tacos for them all while they danced, danced, and danced all night. They put on a show for us then they all headed to bed!

Nicholas Christmas Party

Nicholas had their annual Christmas party and it is always fun to go and mingle with Josh's work buddies and their wives. I spent 2 days trying to find something for Josh to wear, and I loved what I ended up finding for him! I thought he looked hot and we were excited to head out. The evening was great and it's always nice to see Josh recognized for all his hard work. 

PSI Matters

Brayden worked really hard on his STEM fair project. He measured the amount of PSI in a basketball to determine what the optimal PSI is. We had fun conducting his experiments and putting his project together. Turns out he did a great job! He won and moved on to the regional STEM fair competition!

Gratitude Tree

We had a family night and Brooklyn taught us a lesson about gratitude. She wanted to do a gratitude tree so we spent some time cutting out leaves that we can all write on what we are grateful for. I didn't get a pic of the actual tree, but it turned out really cute!

So exhausting, but so fun! After school the kids hung out then we finally were able to get ready to go trick or treating! Brayden headed out with Mason and they went all over the place. Marc and I took all the girls out and they had a blast with each other. Brooklyn and Raygan were awesome. They were both matching creepy dolls and spent the whole time going up to the houses and getting in their backbends and creeping the people out. Everyone loved it. Josh finally made it home from work and joined us. We split with the Jensen's and headed over to the Ericson's so they could see the kids in their costumes. Such a fun day!
