Adam's School Picture

Here is Adam's school pictures. We had to do retakes due to his cutting his own hair during Art class the day before pictures. I was happy it was his hair and not the little girls who sets next to him. Anyway, I think they turned out great!
He is growing up so fast!

Reflections Contest Winner

Jacqueline won the Reflections Contest at her school. She entered in Visual Arts. There were only 5 students chosen out of 93. She did a great job. We went to her assembly today. She didn't know she had won. She was so excited!

This picture is with the other 4 kids who won in the Visual Arts Division.


Jacueline got a neat metal. To celebrate Grandma Linda took us to lunch at the Olive Garden and gave Jacqueline a nice Art Paper book. Trevor and I got her this fun paper airplane book.

Below is a little video of the assembly and her project.

Way to go Jacqueline

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

We hope everyone has a SPOOKTACULAR Halloween!


Our ward had a Trunk or Treat Party this year. We had dinner, games, and the kids did a trunk or treat indoors. We had a blast!

Happy Halloween!

Just Because

What a wonderful surprised I got this morning at work. The Flower delivery man walked in with a beautiful bouquet of roses. I said to my friend " Oh Carie, Look someone sent you roses." Boy, was I surprised that they were for me,from my Wonderful, Sweet Husband. The note said "Just Because" on the front.

Trevor Adam Bradford - I love you!


Thank you!

Elder Grix

Tonight we went to the airport with a couple from our ward here in Sandy, Merrill & Sharon Grix. They invited us to be there when their only child Tyler came home from his mission to Vermont. I had never met Tyler, but was excited to be there. Sharon has been so good to me. Tyler has written to Trevor during his mission.
(Unfortunately, the pictures are all a little blurry. Looks like it's time to get a new camera.)

Merrill got to excited and couldn't wait at the bottom of the escalator!

Like father, like son.

What a sweet reunion!

I'm such a empathic person, of course I had to have a tear.


We went to dinner at Golden Corral, then went to our Stake center and met with the President Moss ( the Stake President) where he was release. What a wonderful night. How lucky we were to share in this sweet experience with the Grix family!

Fall Break in Moab

We went to Moab over Jacqueline's fall break. It's always so much fun. One night we played the game"Uno" We decided to let Addi play and she was so funny. She won twice! All on her own. She's a little card shark!
Nick and Monica moved back to Moab for the off season. Nick is actually in Arizona till mid November doing fall ball. It was really nice to spend some time with my sis! She is expecting their second little girl in February.


One day we went for a ride with the ATVs to the moutain. It was so nice. The leaves are mostly yellow, orange and brown.
The kids had a blast!



We rode up through Pack Creek. Trevor had never been up this way.

This is the highest peak on the LaSal Mountains. Trevor thinks we need to come back and have a little hike up it. I'm not to sure about that.




We rode over to Medicine lake. It's pretty small right now and not as pretty as in the spring/summer time.





Love my Family, Love the Mountain, Love Moab, Love it, Love it.

General Relief Society Meeting

Tonight I had the opportunity of going to the General Relief Society Meeting at the Conference Center. It is always so neat to be in the same room as the Prophet of the Church.

Sister Beck made the announcement the the Midweek Home, Family and Personal Enrichment night will now be called a Relief Society Meeting. Very simple!

All the talks were on the importance of the Relief Society Orgnaization. The Moto of the Relief Society is:Charity Never Faileth” which stems from the first Relief Society meeting. The sisters were asked by the Prophet Joseph Smith to assist the brethren “in looking to the wants of the poor—searching after objects of charity, and in administering to their wants.” The sisters took this call to heart and became a society devoted to seeking out the poor and needy.

President Eying spoke on being your own legacy. Teaching your daughters by example to be a active participant in the Relief Society. I have one of the best examples possible in my Grandma. She has truly lived a life of Charity. I am very grateful for her legacy!

My sweet friend Lori invited me to go with her and her two daughters, Kelly& Carly. We went to dinner afterwords at the Olive Garden. It was such a nice evening out.

Fall

This past Sunday, we drove up Big Cottonwood Canyon to see the leaves. They were just starting to change. Fall is definitely in the air! I love Fall!


Not many reds, only yellow and oranges.

MidValley 5th Ward Fall Carnival

Tonight was our ward's fall carnival. It was really fun. We had a wonderful BBQ and they had lots of fun activities. They had big blow up bounce houses and optical courses. The kids had a blast!

Adam's broken arm didn't keep him back from doing anything. I actually had to get after him a little for being to wild!

Below is a video of one of the slides.



They also has a pie eating contest. To my surprise, Jacqueline was the first one to volunteer. She did great. Adam didn't want to because he said he didn't know how to eat pie that way.


Below is a video of the contest. Watch closely the little boy on the far right. I had a hard time with the camera, but if you watch close it's pretty funny. The bishop's daughter helps him get into it.

Labor Day Weekend in Moab Part 5 "ATV Ride"

My parents and Grandma came up on Sunday. They stayed the night and then Monday morning we all got up and went for a ATV ride. We went into lower Willow basin, up a pretty rough trail. Trevor was loving it! Grandma was sure she was going to be stiff the next day!








We had so much fun! Can't wait to do it again!
