Talon and Mommy Alone for the Weekend

Brock took Jace, Nixon and Leila to the cabin to go snowmobiling and sledding with Grandma and Grandpa K, the Handy's, and Natalie and Gracie.  I had to teach in Young Womens, so I decided to stay home, and I got to keep Talon with me.  It was a nice peaceful weekend...for me!

Here they are right before they left.

Talon sucks his cheeks in all the time!  I love it!  I used to do it when I was little too, and sometimes catch myself still doing it!

This was a different day

I keep trying to catch Talon as Mickey Mouse is coming on TV.  He gets SO EXCITED!  

Here we are snuggling after church.  I love kisses from Talon!

And the fish face again

Before we fell asleep 

After I had been asleep for like 2 hours, he was still going strong!

Ice Skating

Jessi and I bought Groupons for ice skating at the Rec Center, so we went together one night.  It was so fun, and the kids loved it!

Messy Eaters

Leila really enjoyed licking the spoon and spatula after I made brownies for Young Womens.

And Talon is just the messiest eater period, but especially with noodles!

Nixon Guards the Big Guys

It seems like in every one of Nixon's games, he always guards the tallest kid on the other team!  It's pretty funny.  Then one day, his coach Skee told me that he wants to, and asks to!  Gotta love this kid!It was also picture day, and Nixon sure looked handsome!

Kids Weekend With Grandma and Grandpa K!

Grandma and Grandpa K invited Jace, Nixon, Leila, Beckett, and Griffin to go to a hotel and swim and play and sleepover.  The kids were so excited, and had so much fun!  Talon and I watched them swim for a bit, and then went home until we all met up at Lorena's for dinner.  Then we all went back to the hotel to swim a bit more before Brock, Talon, and I left.  The kids stayed up and played some games and read some stories before going to bed.  Then, the next morning, they had breakfast at the hotel, and swam some more before we had to pick them up to take Nixon to his basketball game.  We're so lucky to have such fun, generous grandparents!

Here they are playing before dinner.

And back at it after dinner!

Leila thought it was fun to fall backwards into the pool

And here she is jumping in

Jace and Grandpa had fun playing a fun kind of soccer game with that ball

Talon loved swimming with daddy

Relaxing in the hot tub.
