I am Thankful for all the leaves that my kids can play in! We have about 100 trees and most of them are leaf bearing trees....I do get sick of them, but right now I am grateful for the fun times we have in them!
Raygn & Porter want me to put-we (meaning them) have got about 50 riding lawn mower loads of leaves in a pile. "It's a lot!" Straight from their mouths! "I want to be a great kid."-From Raygn My kids like to help me blog so I will start asking them what to say! ATTENTION Loni: "What do you want for Christmas?"

My Grandmother Hernandez came to visit, we took flowers out to the cemetery, cooked up a storm, (I didn't even get pictures of everything we made) and got to hang out with her. She is 86 years old and can't see very good, doesn't speak any English (well about as much Spanish as I speak) so we laugh a lot and call Lonz, Cory, or Maria to interpret. I love her so much I'm glad that she comes to see us every year.
It is so good to spend time with her learning how to cook some Mexican dishes!! -now I just need to do it more often!
I love you Grandmother!

Here are some pictures of the wedding! We are happy to have Stacie and Shelby as part of our family! The wedding was on the 8th at Sundance resort up Provo canyon. Our whole family was there and it was fun to get to be with everyone. I love my family very much and I am very greatful to have been blest with such a great family. Everything we have been through has made us who we are and brought us close together. I think my dad deserves a lot of the credit for the huge role he has played in our lives. We miss mom but know that she is still watching over us and loves us. Lonz had a couple of pictures hung up of her and I thought they were very cute. (I need a copy Lonz)! Way to go Lonz and Stac we love you!
Oh were should I begin...oh yeah at the beginning! My brother Lonz got married on Saturday so Ryan and I had to post pone leaving a day, we flew in on Sunday our 12Anniversary! We went on a zip line tour, 4-wheelers and speed boats (yes we got to drive them our selves and I thought that Ryan was for sure going to throw us both out), visited the ruins at Tulum, went shopping in Playa Del Carmen, played in the ocean, snorkeled, para sailed, kayaked, played ping pong, rode the tandem bikes, played beach and water volleyball, danced, went treasure hunting (on the beach), got a couples massage, and ate too much!
My in-laws took the 5 kids that are married and their spouse to the El Dorado Royale resort in Playa Del Carmen. THANK YOU PAUL AND BECKY ! That was really fun being around everyone for the week. We each did our own thing and then at night we would usually meet and watch the entertainment. One night Jeff and I were part of the entertainment! This place was soooo nice.
I really had a great time and loved spending all that time with my Husband. We celebrated our Anniversary and his birthday there! Ryan even took dance lessons one day with me! That was really fun. Lots of memories where made! We had a great time. THANKS TERESA for watching our kids while we were gone.

Ryan and I will be married for 12 years on the 9th. So we are both 18 in this picture Ryan turned 19 the day after our wedding! We will be celebrating our anniv. and his B-day in Mexico!
12 years seems so long ago. I don't know what I would do without my dear husband. I love Ryan so much and everyone says it but I MEAN it I do love him more now. I depend on him, I need him, did I mention that I love him? I am so glad that we were sealed 11 years ago in the Manti temple and know that we can be together forever. We have changed and grown in these last 12 years, most good, some well...you know age, hair falling out, weight, & wrinkles! I just want Ryan to know that I am happy that I have him to be my companion, I love you Ryan! Happy Anniversary I hope to have many more good years with you still!

The story of Ryan helping with bills! We had talked about paying all the bills before our trip, but Ryan couldn't stand the mess on his desk so he wanted to pay them this morning. He put a whole bunch of checks into the printer and it printed them at an angle (not sure why I do it every month and it works fine...)-We decided that they would work and then when he put them in the envelopes you couldn't see the company name, so he TORE the envelope so you could see it! It looks like a mouse ate the envelope! These are our Farm bills. THAT'S FUNNY CRAP!!

Ryan and I were talking the other night and I told him I needed one of those leave blowers to blow all the leaves away from the house and around my fountain. He told me that they had one, they had just bought one this year to blow off the tractors! -This is not your usual leave blower...when I turned it on I had to hold on or it would fly up (like shooting a gun when it has a lot of kick and they say hold on tight) the 1st time I thought Ryan grabbed it and was pulling it up, nope just all the pressure! It can really blow the leaves away! When you are married to a farmer and bigger is better...you can get a lot done! Ryan came home and blew out all the rain gutters for me. Porter was on the 4-wheeler with the leave sweeper and Raygn was on the lawn mower picking up all the leaves we blew away from the house. Addie was in cleaning the bathrooms and watching Aleigha. Thanks family
