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!!!
