The Kids Christmas party at Theo's work The kids had lost of fun they had put bubble wrap on the floor for the kids to pop. I saw more adults fall on their butts walking across the bubble wrap. They also had big rolls of brown paper for he kids to color on. They had crafts, Cheyenne made a reindeer out of a candy cane she made reindeer hat. I tried to get Wyatt do them also but he did not want to so I just did them for him. They got to see Santa and Cheyenne did very well he gave her a set of Pom Poms. Wyatt was not at all pleased he stated to cry but I stood behind the camera guy and he stopped just a bit he got a blue teddy bear.
While we are away from our family we had plenty of people at our house this year. Names as follow:(in family groups) Theo, Stephaine, Cheyenne, and Wyatt Jenni, Aj, Aaron, Brandon, Tracie Aj, Julie, Katie Katie,& Tyler Matt,& Megan Dustin,& His girl ( I totally don't remember her name)(Dustin asked her to marry him) Lisa,& Robert Justin Tiffiany...................
While the food was Great and there was enough people to make the house echo we all had a blast. Talked, kinds watched the football games that were on then we got the the Guitar Heroes out and then we got the Wii out and played games. we had people here till after midnight. I will post pictures later. Hope that all of you had a great turkey day also
Leaves and more leaves, we have bagged leaves more then once this year and we still have a ton. Cheyenne asked me if her and Wyatt could play in the leaves, so i got out the rake and got started while I was raking Wyatt go the idea that he need to start helping by picking up the leaves and throwing them, but of course the was not picking up the ones that were on the ground but the ones I had already put in to a pile. They had a blast the were laughing so hard. I was kicking the leaves so that they would fly up around them and they thought it was a blast.
Theo and I were having just as much fun as the kids were. We crawled around the house with the kids on our backs and every so often we would fall down and tell the kids that they broke the horse. Then after a bit Wyatt got up on his sister and said yeeee haw. We have been working on some new phrases for him and the was one of them.
Washing dad's truck While they had a blast I am not sure if the truck or the kids had more bubbles on them when the job was all done. They both had to be striped at the door because they were both drenched head to toe.
The kids had a blast. I made their costumes this year and had fun doing it. We hit 2 different trunk or treats this year and then a haunted house that was put on by one of the boy scouts leaders. this being the first year that Wyatt understood what was going on he got the idea quickly he held his bucket out to every one he passed. Cheyenne loved seeing the people she knew and see the different costumes that she knew the ones that she did not know who or what they were she asked. One of the couples from church where dressed like Popeye and Olive oil and she had no idea who they were so i have decided i have not done my job in the cartoon department i am going to have to fine some of the old cartoons and teach her who is who.
Yesterday was Theo's birthday and we had a theme going he has always loved the movie the PUNISHER and when I saw it at walmart i had to have it, I also found a t-shirt that had the same symbol on it I thought to myself why not and then while making the cake the second round one did not come out of the pan the way it should have and there for broke to far to save so I imper-vised and made the skeleton looking cake to follow the theme of the presents. The kids and I took the cake and his gift and subway sandwiches to him while he was at work the kids had a blast. So another birthday has come and gone and he is still just fine
Sunday October 25,2008 Cheyenne had her first primary program she did awesome. There are 3 sunbeams in her class and they all got up to sing I am a child of God and she was the only one that you could hear singing. She also had a part she had to say " the prophet teaches ME about heavenly father" and she did it all by her self. The last couple weeks before the program she kept saying that she was scared and the she was to shy to do it. but she was a great trooper and she did it. the best part was that even though her daddy had to work he was able to leave for a bit and see her do it.
Theo James Penfold married Stephanie Nicole Oakes November 24 2001
We met at Meridian High in the year of 1994 our freshman year we had zero hour Seminary together and we became friends/acquittance's at the time. the year flew by and Me, Stephanie ended up going to Eagle High when it was built. We saw each other over the years at Wrestling matches. Then in August of 1999 we met yet again at the Caldwell night rodeo. I was behind the bucking chutes whit some friend and the Justin boots sports medicine group when the fence I was sitting on shook real hard and I began to fall, coming down with my fist clenched (this falling thing had happened earlier in the evening when a buddy of mine ad done it to me and the other girls I told him i would come down swinging if he did again) I stopped mid swing seeing who was there we went out that night and that started it all. So in other words you could say I fell for him.LOL
