Beecroft Family Christmas Party

Aunt Paula seems to be good friends with Santa, because he always finds his way to her house for the annual Christmas Party! Josh is excited to see him.

I think Joey couldn't believe the elves didn't tell Santa about all the mischief he gets into, ha ha.

Olivia jumped right on Santa's lap and posed, wow! Usually I have

to beg her to smile for the camera.

Here Kyle and his Dad are in their usual positions discussing sports! Can you tell they are related? It was fun to be a part of the family party, it's only the 2nd one we have been to in the last ten years.

Kaleb, Blake and Hunter are in awe of the Tree and pondering the TRUE meaning of Christmas!

I'm so proud of them.

Early Christmas Spirit with Ella

After laying around sick all weekend the boys decided to relieve some boredom on the dog. They found some reindeer antlers and decided to put them on her. Ella wasn't to happy, so they first tried to sit on her.
The second attempt was to give her a rock to chew on(her favorite past-time) and then put them on. I think it lasted 2 seconds

After chasing her all over, Kaleb went and got a milkbone and held it up in the air. This is Ella patiently waiting for her treat while we slipped on the antlers and took the picture. The boys were really proud of themselves. I wish I could tell you that they stayed on after the treat but it wasn't the case.

Little Magdalyn

Three weeks ago I was able to go to the hospital with my cousin Mendie and watch little Magdalyn Parker be born, isn't she cute. Other than having my own babies, I had never seen a baby born and it was a really awesome experience, thanks Mendie!!! Isn't she a cutie, I'd like to think we will have a little bond. I'll admit though I'm glad Mendie is the one getting up in the middle of the night. ha ha

Here are the Spooks in our family. Olivia dressed up as a dead prom queen, and Joey and Josh represented the Dark side of the Force. It was another fun year for dressing up. Mom just likes all of the chocolate they bring home from trick or treating!

Olivia's P.A.W.S. award

Today Halloween started off with Olivia winning a school award for Honesty.We are really proud of her! Lucky her she even won the extra drawing for a value meal atTaco Bell! I guess Mom will have to take her out to lunch now. : ) The fun part about winning on Halloween is that the newspaper picture will show them all in costume. Olivia and her friend Chantel decided to just come in their pajamas, works for me.

Silly Faces

It's never boring around here with these two!!!

Ah, Country Life.

Well, you have to admit there are some fun things about living out here in the country.
Our neighbor(and practically relative) Bob Schneider asked the kids to help feed his donkeys and get the mail etc...while he is out of town. The coolest part is that he left them his golf cart to drive back and forth while they are doing it. Needless to say the kids are having a lot of fun. I appreciate them having a chance to learn more responsibility.

I'm Getting Excited!

I can't tell you how excited I am about seeing walls go up! It really is an amazing process to watch! Brian is doing a great Job. We went over today and the kids were so excited to see where their rooms were going to be. It is starting to feel real now, and we know we are so blessed.

Go Cougars!

Alright I told Kyle I wouldn't complain that he gets to go and see a BYU game AGAIN without me, but I guess I am a little jealous. : ) I am glad however that he will be able to have some male bonding time. I thought a little Cougar pride might help us win this weekend, we'll see if it helps. P.S. Not only did BYU win but we creamed them 59-0, I guess my little Go Cougars, worked!!
Yes, Coach Mendenhall can thank me, :)

The Start of a New Home

Here is the beginning of our new home. It will be fun to watch it grow from dirt and block to walls and a home. We will keep updating. If I only had one wish it would be for the extreme makeover team to do it in 7 days. (Oh yah plus decorate it) ha.

Once again our summer was filled with a lot of baseball. Kyle coached Joey and Josh and Jarom's all star team. It was a little strange to go back to wearing Snowflake blue and white instead of Snow Canyon green and gold.

Diamondback Baseball Game

Joey wanted to prove he really is Randy's #1 fan!

You know we our officially back in Arizona since we are all decked out wearing our d-backs clothes. Sorry the picture is so blurry, that's what you get when a dodger fan was taking it. ha ha. We sure had a lot of fun at Chase Field, it was the first time that me , Olivia, Joey and Josh had all been there. To bad the Diamondbacks lost in the 11th inning. Four hours later we did get to see fireworks.
