Happy Thanksgiving!! This is Travis cutting the turkey!! Yummy!

I let the boys pick there favorite pie. So yes- I made 8 pies. It was so fun. We stayed home and had so much fun.

The famous Turkey place settings. Treyson made these this year. He did a GREAT job!

He also made some decorations at school. He was very festive this year and a great help in the kitchen. Actually, all the boys helped in the kitchen. It was great!

Special Birthday!

Treyson turned 8 this year! It was such a special birthday for him. He was so excited to be baptized. Despite the snowy roads, his family got to come see him for this special day.

This is Treyson's cousin Carsen. Carsen is Travis's brother Danny's son. Carsen is exactly 6 months older than Trey. He was so excited he was able to come. We were excited Maiya and Danny came too.

Trey getting ready to be baptized!

Grandma and Grandpa Mckee after the baptism. This was special because they are leaving to be mission presidents in Tennessee this summer. They will be gone for 3 years. We were so glad they could come and bring Angie, Aubrey, Kiara, and Des!!

Treyson with Grandma and Grandpa Draper. We were soo glad they were able to come and share this special day with us. We love having them!
It was such a special day. Thanks to all for coming and supporting us. We have the greatest family ever!

Happy Birthday Gavin!

Gavin turned 3 last monday! I can't believe how big he is getting. You gotta love the cake. As you can see we don't do fancy cakes. Jaren did this one himself. He asked before hand and I hesitantly answered yes. I thought he did a pretty darn good job. Poor Gavin wasn't feeling good on his big day. I took him into the doctor the day after and he had a double ear infection. Poor guy. He is very excited to turn 3!!

Pictures of our fall

So I thought I would post just some random pictures of our fall. I forgot that they download backwards. So this first one is of Halloween 2010!

Brayden was a "baby in a sleeping bag". Jaren was a hippie. We weren't sure. People called him "Ja-ron". He had to dress up for basketball and wanted to keep it simple so he added a wig and sunglasses. Trey was a sleeping bag. Dallon was Batman. Gavin was Spiderman and Collin was an elephant!

So one Sunday the boys deciced to play "Captain Underpants". This is what they came up with! Aren't they cute!! They played football and did a little dance. Very funny. What silly guys I have!


The first day of school-Dallon and Travis wore the same shirts. Dallon's shirt was actually a hand-me-down from Brayden. Travis just bought his this year. He had no idea. So cute!!


Travis loves new school shoes every year-so do the boys. I just pray they last all year! (ya right)


Brayden started 7th grade-Jaren 5th-Treyson 2nd-and Dallon Kindergarten.

Our Summer!

It has been a busy-exciting-fast summer. As you can-its full of babys, boys, baseball, boys, family visiting, and more boys. Of course the birth of boy #6, Collin, has kept things busy. He is now 2 months old and is 13lbs! I can't believe how time flies. This is a very excited Jaren with Grandma Mckee and baby Collin in the back. Grandma was so helpful. I was so thankful she was able to come up and be with us. Jaren is 10 now and going to be in 5th grade this year!!

This is Dallon holding Collin. He is so excited to be in Kindergarten. He loves his baby Collin!!

This is Treyson and Collin. Trey will be in 2nd grade this year. I can't believe how fast he recovered from surgery in Feb. I never thought we would get our energetic Treyson back. But we did. I think they even gave him a little more energy under anesthetics. He is always doing something.

Grandma and Grandpa Draper got to come up and visit the new baby. We were so excited they were able to come.

Trying to get a group shot with everyone. Dallon, Treyson Grandpa Draper, Brayden, Gavin, Grandma Draper, Baby Collin, and Jaren. ( I don't know what he's doing.....)

Trying to do some fun pictures with the baby. Not really turning out how I pictured. Oh well- we tried.

Aubrey and baby Collin. Aubrey, Angie and Destiny got to come up with my mom when the baby was born. It was so fun to have them up.

Collin-ready for church. He is such a good happy baby.

Daddy and Collin-taking a little nap.

Gavin and Collin. These two will be my only boys home this year. Quiet or busy? I havn't decided yet. I guess we'll see......

A shot of the Draper boys at Sinks Canyon.

Then of course baseball. The Little Leauge State tournament was hosted here in Riverton. It was so nice especially after having a baby not having to travel for a week. The boys played well.

Jaren turned 10 July, 13. He is #10 this year so Travis made him wear his jersey for his birthday!

A day after that was Brayden's birthday. He turned 12 this year. I can't believe I'm a mother of a 12 year old. He is such a good kid. He will be in 7th grade. Ahhh!! At least Travis is at the same school he can keep an eye on him!! He is very excited to start Jr. High sports.

Travis was Jaren's coach this year.

Brayden recieving his medal.

Jaren after the tournament!

After baseball tournament we had family come for Collins baby blessing. Brayden was also ordained. We thought it was pretty cool they could share those days. My entire family was able to come. It was SO awesome. I still can't believe they all made it. You guys are AWESOME!! Thanks!

This is Brayden and his friend Taylor.
The week after that Travis took Brayden to Scout camp. I went and spent a few weeks in Idaho with the rest of the boys. I got to go to reunions and see cousins which was SO fun- of course Bear Lake, and just hang out and be lazy!!

After Scout camp Travis and Brayden came to get us in Idaho. While we were there Brayden decided he wanted to do baptisms for the dead. We thought that was great since we live so far away from a temple. It was a great experience.

Now we're back and not looking forward for summer to be over. We had a great summer but it sure would be nice to have another month.

My Boys

These are my boys! This is Collin at 1 week. After the kids got home from church. We had to hurry and get some pictures before the church clothes flew off.
