The New Car (or should I say SUV)

This past weekend our family bought a new car. After we sold the Accord, we had been sharing the truck and borrowing the Spence's Durango on occasion but we finally found something big enough for our little family (and a few friends can even squeeze in). It is very clean with low miles and we even like the color. Jason says we got a good deal- not a great deal- but a good deal so we are happy. Next time you see the Royces, we will be cruising in our new Tahoe! :0)

Family Pictures

A few weeks ago, Kelsey took our family pictures. Family pictures are always hard when you have little kids- but the location we chose also came with added distractions- a cat and a million ducks!! We could hardly get Hallee, Jadyn and Colt to look at the camera- let alone at the same time. But after some serious work by Kelsey we ended up with a few cute ones. Here they are in no particular order.

Big BIG News

For any of our friends and family who don't already know- Jason was hired on at Idaho Central Credit Union as a manager and we are moving back to Pocatello!! This new job is an answer to our prayers and we are so excited for the opportunity and potential for Jason but I am so sad to leave our new house, our friends and family, our ward, the shopping, the great weather..... Jason starts on Monday, November 10th, and he will commute to Pocatello and stay with my parents each week until our house sells (which is hopefully soon so if anyone knows of someone looking for a darn cute house in Nampa- send them my way). We are looking forward to see more of my family, to make new friends, to build a new house, and to have many new experiences back in my home town! :0)

Like 3 Bugs in a Rug

On Halloween I dressed all my kids up as the cutest bunch of little bugs!

Hallee- the most beautiful butterfly!
Jadyn- The little lady bug!

Colt- the not so itsy bitsy spider!

The girls did a trunk or treat on the 30th with their cousins Kylie, Kenadee, and Ambree. And then on Halloween we went down town Nampa trick or treating in the afternoon, had the Leavitt family over for homeade pizza and chicken wings, and then went to our old ward's trunk or treat. It was a busy day but we had a great time. Hallee and Jadyn are already trying to figure out their costumes for next year!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Anniversary

On November 2nd- Jason and I had our 6th anniversary!! We actually celebrated the night before with dinner at Brick 29 and then we rented 'Made of Honor.' Nothing to fancy but a night with your sweetheart is always fun (especially when you can ditch the kids for a while). I am so grateful that Jason married me. He is a WONDERFUL husband and father. These 6 years have flown by. We have graduated college, had 3 kids, 1 dog, built 2 houses, and now we are on our 3 job. Life can be crazy but I am so glad to share it with Jason and always have him by my side.
