Brent's brother Kris got married a little while ago and it was such a beautiful ceremony. We are so happy for Kris and Devin. Brent was the best man and Isaac was a ring bearer.

I was stumbling around on the internet when I was came across a pattern for a cape and mask and thought of how much the boy would like it so I made it for him for Christmas, then I thought that the other kids might like them too so I made them for all the kids who were in Vegas. I think that they turned out pretty cute.

Our worn out superhero.

I just love this picture of Isaac, he was trying so hard not to smile.


This year for Christmas we went down to Vegas. Brent's sister and her family were down from Canada and it was so nice to all be together. It has been a long time since we were all together.

Here are the gifts that Santa brought, a walker for the girl and a watch and some games for the boy.

Here are the Reil kids.

Cadence didn't really know what was going on but she was very excited to put all the wrapping paper in her mouth.

Isaac loves playing with toy soldiers and I saw this big tub of soldiers a Toys-R-Us and just had to get it for him. He absolutely loves them.

Here is my wonderful family for Christmas 2011.

Halloween and Thanksgiving

I realized that I hadn't updated my blog in a really long time so this is a huge post about everything that has happened from Halloween until now. Brent is just a couple weeks away from finishing his 9th Quarter. He has had 2 interviews so far and he will definitely have a bunch more during his last quarter. Scentsy has interviewed him and is actually flying him out to Boise this Friday to show him how wonderful it would be to work for them, we will see what happens. My Christmas schedule starts today so I will work Mon.-Fri. 8-4:30am, I am in for some hard days this month. Isaac still loves school and Cadence is crawling all the time now and is already pulling herself up onto the couch. Here are a bunch of pictures of our lives from October until now.

Isaac's School had a parade to show off all of the costumes. All of the kids had so much fun. We all loved Mrs.Larson's costume.

Here are a few pictures of our kiddos at Halloween. Cadence was a fairy and Isaac was Anakin Skywalker (From the Clone Wars, before he was all evil). He got so much candy.

I was able to get Thanksgiving off this year so we went to my Mom and Dad's house for dinner. It is always so nice to be with my family and I thought that this would be a good time to put down some of the things that I am grateful for. I am so grateful for my wonderful children. Isaac has such a fun imagination and he just loves to learn. Cadence's smile is all I need to brighten my day. I am thankful for my parents who have done so much for me and are wonderful examples for my family. And I am grateful for my siblings and their beautiful families for making it fun to visit. I am also thankful for my amazing In-Laws who have done so much to make me part of the family. And I am so thankful for Brent. I can't imagine going through all that we have gone through with anyone else and I am always so amazed at all that he does for us. He is such an amazing father, the kids just adore him, and I couldn't have asked for a better husband.

Here is Cadence and Gemma the youngest grandkids.

Here is the kids table for Thanksgiving dinner.

The day after Thanksgiving, the kids that were still there got to decorate Nana's Christmas tree. Isaac was so excited to help.

These are our Christmas decorations this year. I didn't put a lot of my stuff up cause there isn't enough room in our house. I can't wait until next year when we are in a bigger place.

This is a Poinsettia that I won during the Ward Christmas Party.

These are the ornaments that Brent's sister Jennifer gave to us. She gave us Brent, me, and Isaac's in 2009 and we loved getting out new ornament addition this year. Thanks Jen, we love them.

Isaac has started to crawl into Cadence's playpen and play with her inside. He is such a good brother, Cadence just adores him and whenever Isaac holds her she gets so excited. I just love these little people so much.

I think that is everything that has been happening in our lives, I will try to do better about keeping it updated.

Growing Baby

The girl is growing so big. We think that she will start crawling in about a month cause she gets up on her knees and elbows every time she rolls to her belly. She still doesn't cry much but she does really like to yell, a high pitched hell that absolutely awful, and she does it ALL the time. She is a sweetheart though with the most beautiful smile, which we can never seem to catch when we take her picture. Here are a few pics of our little bug.

8th Quarter

That's right Brent's 8th quarter is done and he is 2 quarters away from graduating. He got a 4.0 this last quarter and his GPA is around 3.7. I am SO excited for him to be done with school. He is starting to apply for jobs and will start interviews in the upcoming weeks. We still aren't sure where we will end up, it could be anywhere from Salt Lake, to Texas, Maryland, or even Hawaii. We will probably stay here in Salt Lake, at least at first. These last quarters are going to be hard on me cause my work changed my schedule so I now work Tues. - Sat. until 3 am (if there isn't overtime, and there has been a lot of overtime).

March can not come soon enough.

Isaac's school

Isaac loves school! If he could go all day he would happily do it. He had a hard time at the beginning of the year but he has gotten a lot better. He goes in the afternoon and every day he tries to get us to go early. He is very excited to learn how to read and is doing good in everything that they are teaching him, he especially likes the computer lab, just like his daddy. They had spirit week a while ago and one of the days was crazy hair day and I thought that his hair turned out really good.
