Happy Halloween!

Halloween was in full force this year. Pumpkin carving, Omniture/Adobe trick or treating, and neighborhood trick or treating. Taylor was a cute cowgirl and Tate was an army ranger. Tate's costume was inspired by his cousin/uncle JD who is an actual army ranger and just got home from Afghanistan. It was very cute because every time Tate was asked what he was he would respond ~ my uncle.

Stein Eriksen 2010

Oh how we love Stein Eriksen! We chose to go to La Jolla last year over UEA because the pool was being worked on, so we were thrilled to get back this year! The mountains were beautiful, the weather was unbeatable, and the food was DELICIOUS. We even spent some time with our friends/neighbors the Gledhill's. We will be back next fall!

Happy 9th Birthday Tate

Tate celebrated his 9th birthday and insisted that his friend party be on his exact birthday. This was not easy for me to pull off because we were leaving for Stein Eriksen that evening. But we persevered and made it happen. We had Dylan, Taylor, Jake, and Carsten all come over for cake and went to see a movie. Everyone had a great time! Tate continues to bring smiles & laughter to our home. We love you Tate.

Soccer - Fall 2010

Tate chose to play on a competitive soccer team this fall. His team name is Highland Lightning. He has great teammates & coaches. Tate scored 3 goals this season. He also discovered that enjoys playing defense. We are looking forward to spring soccer.


Trace had a special assignment of collecting bugs for his bio-block class. So we all had to live with bugs in jars and on pins around the house for about a month. He found some pretty unusual ones ~ including a Jerusalem cricket!


Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Checchio, and it's not my Mom & Dad ~WEIRD!
Joey and Jessica were married September 9 at Red Butte Gardens. It was a lovely ceremony and a fantastic party. We all danced the night away! We are blessed to have Jessica added to our family. She is beautiful inside & out. Joey is a lucky man.
