I can't believe that Christmas has come and gone already!! But this year was a really good year! Christmas Eve was at Becky's this year! Santa came on the Firetruck and all of the kids were so excited. Everyone sat on his lap and made a promise to their parents that they will try harder to be better next year. It was so cute. When he left it was time to sing MUST BE SANTA!! This year was fun because everyone is getting old enough to do it! After singing it FOUR times it was time to go home and get to bed! Mom and I woke up at 6:30 to open presents and then it was off to see what everyone got! Keli insisted that her kids would not wake up until eight but Mom and I thought that she was up in the night so we headed to their house early!! Good thing we did because about seven thirty came around and Keli was calling saying that her kids could not wait any longer!! We got there just in time for the fun! Morgan got everything she asked for and then some!! She was the funnest to watch open everything. She got an American Girl Doll, baby clothes, and best of all an IPOD!! Britton got GI Joes, cars, and a farm to share with Tyler. Britton was so excited about everything. His face was priceless. Tyler got cars, Horton Hears a Who, cars, a farm and did I mention CARS!! Everything he opened he would say WOW LOOK! It was so funny. He also thought that when Mommy got you this he had to give it to her! Ha ha We realized this when he would love it and then get the saddest look on his face! Then it was off to see what the other grand kids got. I think that everyone was good this year because Santa brought almost everything on their lists. My favorite part of Christmas is Breakfast with my Brothers and Sisters. I love watching to see what everyone bought for each other. This year the HOT Item was BYU and UTAH shirts. We are so divided! Its so funny. I also love to see the grand kids faces when they open what Grandma got them. The Pj's and Slippers were a big hit this year!! I think Mason was the first to put his on! Christmas is my favorite Holiday!

Today was Britton's Christmas Program at his Preschool! He had been so excited all morning because his Mom and Dad were going to see him in ACTION!! Britton practiced and practiced all month, singing Christmas songs and learning his line: "I had the Sleigh, but just one helper wouldn't do, I was looking for a team!! " We got to his school and he went right up to where he was supposed to go and sat down. Keli was so excited that he wasn't scared to do it this year because last year she had to sit on the stage with him. Britton was so excited when he saw his Dad walk in! I think from then on all he did was smile and look at Buddy!! It was so CUTE!! The program started and the funny thing is you couldn't hear any of the kids. I thought, oh great Britton isn't going to say his line loud enough, but his part came up he stood up all smiles and looked at his Dad and said his line loud so everyone can hear! He did so good!! When it was over we got to see SANTA!! Oh man, all of the kids were jumping up and down! Tyler couldn't wait to sit on Santa's lap!! Ha ha I love Christmas!! Britton is such a good boy and he did such a good job! I know that Keli and Buddy loved it and are just as proud as I am of Britton!!

Wow, It has been a while!! A lot has kept me busy the last couple of weeks! Let me tell you a little bit about it! We went to Las Vegas at the first of November! I had a BLAST!! I kinda invited myself a long with Buddy and Keli and Buddy's family, Ha Ha but they didn't seem to mind....at least I hope!! Thanks for letting me crash the party! I had a ton of fun!!

Thanksgiving was so much fun! This year was the off year with my family but because some are having babies soon, most of my family got to stay here this year! We had an amazing dinner thanks to my Mom and Sisters! Not to mention, Alison makes the best rolls ever! After dinner it was off to the bowling ally! Riley and Stephanie met us there! I think almost everyone played but it was so much fun watching the kids play! I am so glad that I have a close family! I don't know what I would do with out them! I love you guys!!

Well that is about it! Life can get kinda CRAZY but I LOVE every minute of it!!

Yesterday would have been my Dad's 61st Birthday! My Dad past away when I was eight years old! I think that I am the only one in my family that has a hard time remembering a lot about him! I have memories of him watching my soccer games chewing on a piece of grass, or walking in from work and giving me a big hug, Sunday dinners are my favorite! They are memories that I cherish! He was such an amazing person and he loved my family so much! I sometimes sit and think about how life would be if he was still here and I know one thing for sure he would have loved being a Grandpa! Happy Birthday Daddy! Love you and I miss you everyday!

Okay so this year for my Birthday I told Jillian that I really wanted to go to the Jazz season opener! Well time went by and we had no time to even look for tickets! Then I get a phone call from my cousin Marie and she had six tickets and was wondering if me and Jillian would want to go!! I didn't even have to ask Jillian but I called and she of course said YES LETS GO!! We had the best time! My cousin Brianne came with us and it was the first time that she has been to a real Jazz game!! She was so excited when we got up there and I will never forget her face when the game started! After the Jazz beat Denver we went down to watch the after show! Thurl Bailey's body guard came up to us and asked if we wanted to meet him! I don't know who was more excited Brianne or Jillian but of course we said YES! We got pictures with him and boy, is he TALL!! At that moment I didn't think that Brianne could get more excited until I told her that we could go around and watch the players leave in there cars! I have to admit I was dying to see them leave too! After a little wait we saw Kyle Korver leave! Brianne was shocked that he was actually there and I think that Jillian and I were so excited that he was actually one foot away that we couldn't work our cameras! But we did get a picture of his hand and car after we realized what was going on! lol I think I am in LOVE... ha ha just kidding!! Kyle drove up by Brianne but because the crowd was so excited to see him they were getting out of control and the security made him leave! We were sad but I have to tell you that just seeing him MADE my night!! lol We waited for a while longer and got to see a lot of them leave but then we got to meet Brewer and CJ Miles! They were really nice and stopped and gave us their autograph! They used Jillian's pen and she wouldn't let any of us touch it! Oh man that was a good night!! It was one of the BEST nights I have had! I had so much fun with my cousins! I will never forget it! Thanks Weezie for making it happen! I had a ton of fun with you girls!!
Brianne and Big T!

Brewer saying Hi to Brianne! He is so HOT!!

CJ Miles and Brianne! Sorry I cut him out Brianne!

Last night was the annual TRICK OR TREAT at the shop! The kids look forward to this more than anything on Halloween! The day started off crazy, Scott and Becky came over with their kids and got all ready for the party! Keli got Pizza for dinner then it was off to the Trick or Treat!! All of the kids looked so cute in their costumes! Lets see if I can remember what they all are going to be this year! Taylor is a Punk Rocker, Baylee is a Vampire, Kelsea and Morgan are flapper girls (20's Dancers), Payton is a TMNT, Clayton is a football player, Addi and Bryn are witches, Sydnee is a Monster Bride, Halli and Josie are BYU Cheerleaders, Kenzie, Mason, and Spencer are all Boxers, and Britton and Tyler are Firefighters! Wow I think I got them all, and that's just my family! Everyone was there and I don't think I could name all of them! They all looked so cute in their costumes! I love to see what they come up with each year! Morgan Britton and Tyler hit the jack pot with the candy and its not even Halloween yet! Looks like Keli and Buddy will have a lot of candy to eat! YUMMY!!!!


This past weekend we went up to the cabin to help close it for the winter! It was so much fun and the kids had a lot of fun with Grandma and Grandpa Johnson! They helped clean up outside and fed the chipmunks peanuts and pancakes! We went on walks and just enjoyed it up there! Britton and Grandpa are now BEST PALS! They can't be best buddy's because Britton says that is his Dads name so BEST PALS it is! I think that Britton and Grandpa were together the whole weekend! Telling stories and laughing! Britton says his favorite part was telling Grandpa all of his troubles and Grandpa telling him what to do and to be a big boy! He loves his Grandpa! I had so much fun hanging out with everyone! The minute we got there Jillian and I headed for the beds to get in the blankets cause it was FREEZING!! We played games with Grandma and we even played 5 crowns until I won one! Grandpa was excited about that! Cleaning was fun I think that Jillian and I drove everyone CRAZY cause we had one song stuck in our heads all weekend! Keli even said if she heard us singing it one more time she was going to go nuts! Sorry Keli!! I love my Grandma and Grandpa so much and I am so happy that I got to spend the weekend with them! Thank you so much Gramps and Grams for all that you do for me! I love you!!

I am 26! CRAZY!! My birthday was awesome!! My Mom took me shopping on Saturday and spoiled me like always! I LOVED every minute of it! Yesterday was my birthday and it was awesome! Keli and the kids came and spent the day with me! They brought me balloons and a cake!! Tyler loved the cake! He would take a bite and then put his fingers in the frosting!! I loved having them over! Thanks Keli for all that you do for me you made my birthday special! My sisters took me to the Olive Garden for my Birthday dinner! I made Jillian come!! We had so much fun laughing and telling stories and eating cheesecake!! But most of all I was so excited that the waiter FORGOT to sing "Happy Birthday" to me!! Becky was mad but to tell you the truth it made my day!! Thanks for dinner girls!! All and all it was a good day! I got to share it with everyone that I love!! Most of all I get to share it with my niece Brynlee!! "Happy Birthday Brynlee, I love you lots!"


This past weekend was fall break so Becky and I decided that it would be fun to go do something with the kids! She had the idea to go up to Thanksgiving Point and go to Cornbelly's for the day!! The kids couldn't wait to get there and they were so excited when they saw all the fun stuff they could do!! They had jumping pillows, face painting, slides, and train rides and lots more!! We even went through the scary beast and all the kids came out cying! ha ha! The best thing was running into Stephanie and the kids and hanging out with them for a bit! We went on the cow train and the hay ride and on the slides with them! Morgan was so excited to see Addisyn! Later on, we went through the corn maze and I swear we were going in circles but Mckenzie managed to find the way out!! The kids were so tired by the end of the day after so we ate the biggest corn dogs I have ever seen we hit the road and headed for home!! Morgans favorite part was the jumping pillows she could jump on them for hours, Brittons favorite part was the hay ride and Aunt Stephanie screaming at the stuff that jumped out and Tyler loved the map of the park and the slides! It was a really fun day and I have to admit I had a BLAST!!!

A couple of nights ago my Grandma Hiatt turned to me and said,"Stacy I have one wish!" I was like okay and what would that be? She Answered, " A banana split!" Ha ha!! Of course I wanted to make that wish come true not only for the fact that it sounded so good to me but also cause she looked like she really wanted it! So after a quick run to the store to get all the toppings I ran up stairs to tell her that I had made her wish come true!! She was so excited!! She got out this huge bowl and started piling on the toppings!! To my surprise she made me use a bowl just as big!! YUMMY!! I am glad that I could make your wish come true Grandma!!


One of the traditions in my family is on conference weekend the girls get together and have a girls night with the kids while the men go to priesthood!! October is the Pumpkin Patch! We usually meet early afternoon and go to the Big Red Barn in Santaquin to the pumpkin patch!! This year of course it was raining again so that didn't happen! (we will try again next year!) The kids were sad but Aunt Keli came to the rescue with the idea of making their own little pizzas and decorating cookies!! It was a hit! No wonder she is the favorite!! I don't think the kids even remembered that they didn't get to go to the pumpkin patch! My family has grown so much that we had to have a girls and boys turn at the table to decorate cookies!! They were so excited!! Tyler I think put all the chocolate chips on his three cookies!! Brynlee was the cutest sitting at the table with the big girls! After the pizza and cookie mess was cleaned up the kids played in Becky's toy room and Mason entertained the adults by singing primary songs!! Man, he is so so cute!! And of course the girls LOVE to take pictures with my camera!! Ha Ha!! After a night of laughing, playing and just having a BLAST we were so tired! But that didn't stop us girls from going to La Casita when the boys got back!! Yummy!! This is one tradition that has become a favorite!! I can't wait for next year!! Hopefully we will get to go to the pumpkin patch too!!


Well my coaching days are over for now!! We had our last soccer game last week!! And we ended the season on a good note!! We were actually playing together and having fun!! I loved coaching even though it was really hard!! I just hope that the boys had fun!! I know Spencer did... He decided that he was just going to tackle the other team and pretend that he was just playing football!! It was so funny!! It seemed to make our team get more aggressive!! The referee had to give him warnings but he didn't care!! Ha Ha! I am glad it is over but I am going to miss it!! Thanks Spencer and Jake for letting me be your coach!! You guys are awesome and I hope you play next year!!!

Britton is playing Cub Soccer this year!! He was very excited to start the season!! The only sad thing about it is he didn't get on the team with all his cousins but we think that is a good thing! Britton can have a chance to do it on his own and he is doing awesome! He is on the GREEN team, and I think it is the only team of all boys!! They play three boys at a time and the coach is on the field to help them! It is so funny to watch at this age because where ever the ball goes all of the players swarm to it! They are all so cute! Britton started the season running all over trying to get the ball!! He would get so tired! Then Britton learned that if he was tired all he had to do was tell his coach and she would let him sit out for a little bit! Pretty soon Brit was tired within the first three minutes!! He is so funny! Buddy doesn't like that he figured that out but what can you do! Britton scored his first two goals in his last game! I think that Buddy and I were more excited about it than he was! Buddy would tell him "Good job Brit", and he would just say "I know Dad." and walk off! Then there is Tyler! He takes his kick it (soccer ball) and dribbles up and down the sidelines as the game goes on! He even has to wear Morgans soccer shirt from last year because Britton has one on! Don't worry Buddy, I think Tyler will be more competitive at this! He seems to love it already! Tyler can't wait for next year so he can play and score goals! At least we know Britton is having fun because he enjoys going! That is all that matters! He says the best part of playing soccer is the TREAT at the end of the game! Britton is getting so big way to fast in my opinion! I wish that he could stay little forever but that is impossible! I am just glad that he decided to play soccer! Good Job BRITTON!!!

I cannot believe that the summer is over! This year it went by so fast! We started the summer living in one place and ended it living somewhere else!! But hey that is a good thing! I feel like the this was the busiest summer ever. Between dance and the parades and just having fun! I had tonz of fun hiking and spending time with my brother Scott. What can I say, he is my hiking buddy!! I just hope that even though it is getting colder we still spend time together! I love you Scott!! I also spent the first half of the summer in Becky's Backyard!! That was our swimming place! We had so much fun laying there and watching the kids SPLASH each other!! I love the sun and I am going to miss it!! Becky thanks for laying out with me even though we didn't do it as much as other years!! But hey, there is always next year right!! This year the kids had the best time at the new Payson Pool! We only went a couple of times but now that we live closer I am sure that we will go more next year! The cabin was a ton of fun like always! I hate that it is almost time to close it up for the winter! Britton will miss it! Buddy's sister Krissy came and stayed with us for a week!! We had a blast going for rides and playing her IPod! Soulja Boi is Tylers favorite song now and he can sing every word!! It's so funny!! Laiton and Ashlynd came down from Wyoming to pick up Krissy and stayed the weekend!! We went to kangaroo zoo and had tonz of fun! The kids were so excited to spend time with their cousins, Aunt and of course their Grandma!! We had the Johnson swim party and lots of other fun stuff!! Grandma Johnson turned 80!! We had a big birthday party for her and Age made a video! It was awesome! She was excited!! Labor day was Rainy!! But we still had a ton of fun at the Onion days celebration!! Grandma Hiatt had the BEST food as always and I swear we all ate too much!! The girls went down to the park and walked around the booths! I don't know how we got away from the kids! I loved spending time with my sisters and Mom!! All in all it was a CRAZY summer from beginning to end! I can't even remember all that we did! But it was still a BLAST!! Best part of it was the time spent with my family!! I love all of you!!
