flagstaff, arizona.

We made a quick weekend trip to Flagstaff Arizona to visit my sister and her family.  Here are some of the adventures we packed in!



Tiffany makes awesome tamales.  We made 120 of them to freeze, but of course I forgot to bring mine home, I guess they will be enjoying tamales for a long time {I will post the recipe and step by step instructions later}


McKay ditched school for two days and went with us.  We didn't tell Hopkinson's we were bring him.  Tiffany screamed when he walked into the house and her kids were SO excited when they woke up and saw 'uncle K K' asleep on the sofa.



soo gooood!

Quinn showing us her 'baby alive' that eats and poops.  It was like having an extra kid around.






Enoch showing off on his tricycle.
 


Addie riding home from school {very excited that we brought her bike to ride home}.

Little Enoch crossing by himself .

cousins.  Jean and Truman {three weeks apart}.

the 'adults' playing games at night.  I really like this new game they introduced to us.  It was called "set" it is totally a girl game - Tiffany and I beat Mckay, Aaron and Gregg every time {it's kind of a multi-tasking game}.

Getting ready for winter - we had a wood chopping afternoon.


Cousins.  Addie and Truman.





This is the motor home of my dreams.  I wanted to buy it but I still have not convinced Gregg of my idea.  I really want to buy a cute, old, retro motor home and fix it up {pimp it out} with nice wool carpet, travertine bathroom, granite counter tops, custom bedding and draperies.  Aaron and I thought this motor home would look nice in chrome with the green stripe.  Aaron thought the neighbor would sell it to me for $50.  It was a win - win situation until it SOLD to someone else.... bummer.


On Saturday afternoon Tiffany and I shuttled the boys and all the kids to the top of a mountain so they could mountain bike down.


Uncle "greggie" with the pumpkins.
{check back on halloween for more pictures of the kids in consume}.


Enoch trying to keep up with his dare devil dad and uncle.  He insists on riding his bike down this dirt hill - it is so dangerous. 


Thanks Hopkinsons for a great weekend.

friday flashbacks.



Tiffany {the witch} and Camille {the clown}
October 1984 {?}

This is one of my all time favorite pictures.  I still remember when my mom took this picture because I wanted to hold my blanket but she would not let me because I would mess up my clown makeup - so she put my blanked behind me to lay on.

fall family photos.

































We had family photos taken a few weeks ago.  I loved them all - I had a hard time deciding which ones to post.  Photos complements of the very talented Ahsley Swapp Photography - check her out!  Thank you Ahsley you made us look good!  I love Truman's different faces. Enjoy!
