So as tradition goes, every year we take the kids to ethel m chocolates
and sunset park to look at the lights.
Its always cold but the kids love it. this year when we went through

and making peanut brittle. yum yum

For the love of a dog.
puppy kennel....$30.00
the look on their faces....priceless.
This year, last minute, we decided that it was time for a dog. I have had a really hard time agreeing to the pet thing in the past because of the responsibility that inevitably falls upon the mommy.....no matter how much they promise that it will be theirs and that they will feed and clean up after it. So Justin calls me and says "you have to go NOW, I found a dog." Be there asap! He conned this poor woman into selling to him instead of the person she had already promised him to! SO WRONG..but we are so lucky.
Total surprise to the boys though. It was great!

Posted by PicasaMy boys love this animal. It is already part of this family and gets more attention that anyone or anything else....even me... :(
They are still trying to set the name in stone but for now its Mohawk. So cute because his hair sticks up on top of his head.
So lots has happened in the last several months so here's a brief update.
We moved back to the east side and love the place we are in. Lots of space and freedom for the boys and the perfect place to kick back and relax in.
We've all got birthdays coming up and you know what that means...that we are getting old. Austin is going to be 13 next month and it seems only yesterday he was starting to walk. Christopher will be 11 in February and Cam will turn 10 shortly after that. The hardest to believe is that our baby will be 8 come this summer.
In September we took the kids to the most magical place on earth and had a blast. All of the kids were old enough to ride together which was sooo fun! They must have gone on "mulholand madness" 5 times in a row. By the last time though, Austin was done! He looked like he was going to loose his cookies...and whatever else he had eaten that day.

dontcha just love holidays! it gives everyone a change to hang out and have fun. we had our annual waters family easter hunt and the kids had so much fun. passing pretzels, eating donuts, finding eggs, and lots of pics and food. before we went to the park, the mosers got together for pics by our all talented marissa and boy was that entertaining. entertaning the 12 kids and 2 dogs that is. looky here, smile big, look at the camera, treats, tears, sit, sit here, hold still...and lots of confusion. im sure that the onlookers thought we were a bunch of crazys. i thinks its been 12 years since weve had pictures together, well besides weddings. it was great.

so its been a year as of february 24, and i just want to take a moment to reflect on the love and respect i have for this man. he was a great dad and grandpa, and respected by all who knew him. we love you dad and miss you everyday
one thing for sure is that he loved all his boys and they loved him. he always said "i love my boys"

so this is a moms proud day. austin received the priesthood and mom cried. almost everyone was there!!! he even shed some tears. it was so great. he quoted the 13th article of faith when he was sustained in sacrement meeting. so proud of him.

afterward we had the fam over for the yearly superbowl gathering and birthday celebrations for austin, christopher and my cute little 1 year old nephew cohen. he was loving the cake as you can tell and christened my kitchen floor to prove it.

they are getting so big and i am getting sooo old. my boys arent babies anymore..tear...

so i am finally getting christmas done. we always have the boys line up every year before going to the family room. they alternate every year youngest to oldest and reverse. so fun
every year we go caroling as a family. not justins fav but he endures it because he loves me. so this is my whole family. i have 1 sister (next to my mom in the middle) and 4 brothers. as you can see, we have tripled in size. also im a so blessed to have grandparents that my children know and love. they are still spunky as every, even at 81 and 91 years old. arent they sooooo cute
