I never thought I could fall in love with a cowboy, but I must say.... This one has stole my heart!
My parents got this for Keyton for Christmas, and he just looks so cute in it. I love this little guy so much. I can't believe my baby is turning 3 in January! It feels like yesterday when they placed him in my arms after having him. Since his birthday is next month, I am dedicating my blog to him! I love you Keyton. Thanks for the smiles you bring to my face everyday! I hope you have a Happy Birthday!

This Christmas!

We had an interesting Christmas this year. Trevor had to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, so I decided since he doesn't get home until late, we would just go home to my parent's for Christmas. So, me, Trevor, and Keyton did our Christmas the night of the 23rd. Keyton got lots of fun stuff his favorites were his barn and his cannon shooter (thanks Aunt Sari and Uncle Rick) Then Christmas Eve morning we loaded up and headed to BL. It was fun to be there, but an ironic thing happened. Christmas morning, I got a call from Trevor saying the roads out to work were all closed so he didn't have to go in. Such typical luck for us. So Trevor spent Christmas with his sisters and parents here in Poky and me and Keyton spent it in BL. Figures. Anyway, hope everyone else had a Merry Christmas and have a great New Year!

Tis The Season

I seriously love the Christmas season. My tree has been up since before Thanksgiving, and I sit in front of it every night while reading. We have been going out most nights and looking at Christmas lights, and I think Keyton gets bored before I do. We went to the light parade downtown and that is also another of my favorite things to do. Here is a pic of our whole crew. Trevor neglected to tell me he was taking the picture so my back it turned, but it's cute of everyone else. It was my family, my sister's family, Trevor's sister's family, and my friend Misty's family. Of course Keyton had a blast because his best friends Kudter and Kache were there and his cousins. Who could ask for more trouble? Keyton is very excited about Christmas too, and he is asking Santa for a Better Batter Baseball. He's had his heart set on it for months, but I'm not sure he's been a good enough boy to deserve it. He better do some serious kissing up in the next couple days!
I had to post this picture of Keyton because it's times like these I tell Trevor, "he is your son, not mine. I could never be that wierd." He came running into the kitchen wearing this ensamble and it was all I could do not to pee my pants laughing. Who's kid is this?? Pretty sure he came from the zoo!

We are loving the snow we are getting and Keyton has had to go out and play in it every day. I love to bundle him up to the point where he can't even walk, he just waddles. It makes me laugh. He takes our dog Sevy out with him and could play for hours. I think he is immune to feeling cold, cause he won't come in even when his nose and fingers are bright red.

I hope everyone who is reading, is having as great a Christmas season as we are. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Trying to catch up

I haven't blogged in forever and have really been missing it. We have had a crazy couple of weeks. This year we decided to have Thanksgiving at our house. We had all of Trevor's family and my parents and Grandma Gloria. So, 13 adults and 7 kids later we had a house beaming with life! I was so nervous to cook a turkey, but I actually did it, and it didn't taste too bad either. I love Thanksgiving, mostly because I love good food and family to go with it. It was a good day. The day after Thanksgiving, we took Keyton to the Christmas light parade in old town and it was really fun. He loves any excuse to get to see a fire truck. The next night we were going to go to the BUY-ISU basketball game but Trevor started to get a fever. Of course, he got the stomach flu and threw up that night. Yuck. As we started getting him to feel better and thinking me and Keyton had avoided it, you know what happens... I got the stomach flu too. I had forgotten how bad that sucks! And house and home falls apart when mom is sick. We are still trying to recover!!! Hope you all had a happy Turkey Day!

Hanging with the Family

This last weekend we had our annual Christmas card making day. All the girls get together and make Christmas cards while eating delicious food. Always a great time! While we are doing that, the men go out and shoot clay pigeons. Since Keyton is almost 3, of course he thinks he is as big as all the other boys. He was mad I wouldn't let him go up and shoot. (men just don't watch kids as close as us women) So, I promised him I would take him up for a little while. He had to take his new gun that Grandpa had bought him. It was so cute, they lined him up and made him say "pull" to shoot the pigeon, then someone else would shoot it and Keyton thought it was him that shot it. He thought it was great, and that is all he has been playing since we got home. I love his imagination.

We had a fun Halloween this year. Keyton was the cutest little motorcycle rider I have ever seen. He got many compliments on his costume, so thanks Sari and Harlee for letting us borrow it. We went trick or treating down in old town and then to a trunk or treat. That gave us more than enough candy. Keyton liked his costume too but he knows already that next year he wants to be a Transformer. Knowing him, he won't change his mind. Hope everyone else had a Happy Halloween!

A Night Out

If you can't tell from my playlist, I love this new artist I found Missy Higgins (and no I don't like her cause we have the same last name) Well I found out that she was coming to Pocatello and I was soooo excited. Trevor got tickets for me and my friend Misty and we went last night while he watched our 3 boys. Oh my gosh, we had the best time. It was at this hole in the wall place, but it was so much fun!!! I love her, but she is even better live. I was so bummed though because I had forgotten my camera. This was one of my and Misty's favorite ones that she performed. SO, now maybe I can change my blog playlist right? Thank You Trevor for letting me have the best night out!

We had a really fun weekend! We have been wanting to go to a BYU football game all year and Trevor's Aunt gave us the opportunity. So we invited my parents, and made a weekend of it. Keyton was so excited the night before and kept saying, "We going to a BIU football game!". On Friday, we went down to Salt Lake and went to Gardener's village, which is any woman's dream come true. Trevor and Grandpa had to occupy Keyton while my mom and I shopped. Then, we went to Cabellas. Wow, that store is Keyton's heaven. We spent 3 hours there checking everything out. Keyton loved it and I think everyone else did also. That night we went and met Trevor's Aunt Sherri and Susie for dinner. It was good to get to see them again. I just love them. Saturday, we got to go to the game. It was an exciting game as you know if you watched it. Keyton loved getting to meet Cosmo and he kept yelling "Go BIU" through the game. I didn't have the heart to tell him it was BYU. Anyway, we had a great time there so thanks Susie and Sherri. We love you guys.

Friends in High Places

We have been having a ton of fun the last couple days. On Wednesday, Sari called and said her friends Nic and Melissa were out on the tractor harvesting potatoes and that if we wanted to bring the kids out, they could ride on the tractor with Nic. Keyton knows all about "John Deere" tractors, so this was a dream come true for him. He thought it was great to be able to drive and honk the horn and fill up the potato haulers. They had already filled up 2 trucks, and another one was supposed to be coming. Sari figured they had ridden long enough and went to get them out. Keyton told her, "No, I'm waiting for the next truck." So, he had to ride a little longer. After we finally convinced him out of the tractor, he clenched his fists really tight and said, "That was the coolest fing I've ever seen!"
Then on Thursday, we came to Bear Lake since Trevor is at drill all weekend. It was conveniently the homecoming parade, so Keyton got to live another dream. Riding in the fire truck! Grandpa and him drove it in the parade and it was so cute. He was saying "Go Bear Lake"on the intercom. He also got to spend time with his new cousin, Brakken. He loves him even though he can't quite understand why he won't play with him. I just have to say, it's nice to have friends and family that get to do all these cool things. It makes it easy for Keyton to get to live his dreams. I love watching his face light up when he gets to do things like this!

My mom called last week and told us she read in the paper about a model train show at the Depot. We went down there, and it was really cool. There was this huge room full of tracks and towns and bridges that these little trains drive on. Keyton was in train heaven. He loves to see the trains everywhere we go. He thought this was the best. He had to call grandma and tell her all about it. I guess they have it every 3rd Saturday of the month, so we will definitely have to go back again. Maybe next time Grandpa and Grandma can come with us.

My Little Picasso

I had a proud Mommy moment today. I was trying to get the house cleaned today and was in a rush and as I walked through the kitchen, I saw Keyton at the fridge drawing on his magnadoodle. I quickly asked him, "what are you drawing?" and he replied in a very serious tone, "a motorcycle"
His drawings are typically scribbles so I just said "cool" and walked off without looking. Then when I went back in there a minute later I noticed how hard he was concentrating on his little drawing. So, I walked over to look at it and this is what I found. Mind you, he is barely 2 1/2 yrs old....Pretty good if you ask me!

Wow, it seems like life has been crazy lately. We have been trying to cram in as many things as possible before this summer ends. It has been fun as well as exausting. Here are some of the things we have been doing in the last couple weeks...
Trevor has not been backpacking with his dad in over 5 years. So, some of the Reddish's planned a trip, and they took lamas and went backpacking in the Uintas. They got rained on and Trevor said the hike was pretty rugged, but I think he was so glad to be able to get to do that with his dad again.

We ended up getting some flooring from Tessa and Brandon that they weren't able to use and put it in out kitchen. This is what the new floor looks like. I love it, but it took us a few days to get that in ourselves. I must say... me and Trevor worked pretty well togther.
We got some baseball tickets through Trevor's work, so we got to go see the Idaho Falls Chuckers play. It was a very fun night. Keyton loved to yell at the players and stomp his feet with the crowd. He got his T-shirt autographed by Charlie the Chucker but not before he gave the bird a big hug and kiss right on the beak. Of course, like anywhere else we go, he found himself a good looking teenage girlfriend (that kid is such the ladies man), and he managed to swindle his way out of a foul ball. Long story but so cute I have to tell it. I told him to take his glove to the game in case a foul ball came our way. So he carried it around most of the night. And what are the odds... a foul ball came right to us. But before Trevor could get it this teenager dove through the benches and was wrestling for it under our bench. Keyton saw him get the ball and went over and said very politley, "Can I please have that ball?" (knowing it was rightfully his) and of course, the kid couldn't tell him no.
Then, this weekend we went camping for a night and took Keyton's 4-wheeler up with us. He has only ever ridden it on the sidewalk by our house, and he thought it was great to actually get to ride it in the mountains. All I can say is that I think we have a future 4-wheeler racer on our hands. I hope this video works because it is a crack up.

The Reddish's

We hadn't had a Reddish Family Picture since me and Trevor got married, so we thought it was about time. Ryan's cousin Connie took them for us and they turned out really good. Especially for what she had to work with (7 little ones). The 2 year olds (Keyton, Anna, and Elle) are all within 4 months and they are so cute to watch grow up together. They are all so different, but can have so much fun together. It's crazy to me to look at these, Haiden and Madi have grown up so much since I first met them, which seems like just yesterday. They are such beautiful girls. When I see Andrew, he just makes me laugh. He is always trying to make people laugh and thrives on it. And Baby Logan, such a cutie, all I can say is I hope to have one as easy as him some day. I love my in-law family so much. They are so good to me and have just taken me in as one of their own. A funny story, Trevor's dad told me that he knew I was going to be the one Trevor married because I was the first girl he introduced to them as his "girlfriend". Trevor's parents are the nicest people I have ever met and would do anything for me. I love them! And, I'm so glad I have 4 more sisters in my life! They are always willing to help me out whenever I need it. Trevor's sister have truly become my best friends along with my own sisters. I love and appreciate you guys so much. Thanks for all you do.

A Fun Weekend

This last weekend was really fun. Trevor had his monthly drill, but it was family day on Saturday. That morning the general flew down in a Blackhawk and gave out an award. So, then they let everybody check out the helicopter. Keyton thought it was the greatest thing ever. He got to sit in it and everything. Then he got to do the blow up obstacle course. They had all the tanks and trucks there for people to look at and sit in. I just love to see his face light up when he sees anything to do with the Army. He is just mesmerized by it. He loved getting in the tank that is just like the one Trevor drives. Then right when we were ready to go we heard the helicopter was going to take off. We got to sit about 50 yards away and watch it take off. Keyton couldn't take his eyes off of it. There is nothing better for a mom than to watch her child fall in love with the same thing his dad is in love with. It was soo fun.

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. If you don't want to play on your blog, or if you don't have a blog, I'll leave my memory of you in my comments.

Happy Birthday Trevor

Trevor's birthday is tomorrow and he turns the big 26!
I thought I would just tell him Happy Birthday from me and Keyton!
We love you so much Trevor and couldn't ask for a better husband and dad.
Thanks for all you do for us
We love you so much!
Happy Birthday!
So, I thought I would post some pictures of Trevor that I love. Not many people get to see the side of Trevor that I get to see. He is usually pretty reserved when he's around people, but when it's just us at home, he is a crack up. He is always pulling faces at me. The first picture is when he got home from a two week military school and him and keyton were so excited to see each other. Classic moment. Make sure you check out the middle one. This one was one of the funniest moments of my life. Me and my friend Misty roped our husbands into dressing up as Century High School cheerleaders. So naturally, Trevor had to be the girl. Notice his hairy belly and legs hanging out in the pic. I don't think I have ever laughed that hard and am laughing just remembering it. He kept sitting with his legs open in his skirt so you could see his underwear. I kept having to remind him he was in a dress.! The bottom left one was when I was about 7 months pregnant and Trevor had to go to Louisiana for hurricane Katrina relief. This was the night he got home. I missed him alot when he was there. The last two are Trevor in the outdoors where he is happiest. Trevor, here are some things I love about you:
-your sense of humor
-your laugh (when I get to hear it)
-The smell of your armpit!!
-How good of a Dad you are to Keyton
-How you will do anything to make me happy
-how hard you work all the time
-how you hardly ever complain
-how much you love everyone
-how giving you are to others
-How you balance me out
-how you always rub my back when I ask even
though I know you don't want to
-your eyes
-your half smile
-How much you help me with whatever
you can on your days off
-How hot you are in your uniform.(love it)
Happy Birthday, I love you

Family Trip to Yellowstone

I have not been to Yellowstone since I was like 5 and Trevor had never been, so we decided we wanted to check it out. We took our camper that we bought this year up and camped for two nights and explored the park. We had so much fun, and Keyton was sooo good. He loved getting to see all the animals and pretending to shoot them. He really loved the mud pots because his new favorite movie is Ice Age and Sid sits in a mud pot. I loved it too. I was just as bad as the tourists jumping out of the car before it was stopped to get a picture. It's just soo exciting when you actually see an animal. Our second day there, Trevor's sister Chantel and her roommate Michelle met us at Old Faithful and went the rest of the way with us. It was fun, and I think we will have to make a annual trip out of it. We should feel so lucky to have such a beautiful place so close to us.

Independence Day

Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July. Trevor had to work on the 4th so me and my friend Misty took our boys to the parade. Then my mom and dad stopped by with Harlee, and her and Keyton swam in his pool. They had a blast. Then Trevor's sister Randee came over with her girls and we had a little BBQ. Once Trevor got home, we lit our own firework and then watched the city's. We are able to see them really good from our house which made it nice. All in all, it was a pretty good day and Keyton thought the fireworks were pretty cool. I love the Fourth of July. There's nothing better than a hot dog and fireworks with your family.

Congrats Brandon and Tessa on becoming parents. Life will never be the same the again!!! We love you very much.
Trevor, Dayna, Keyton, and Sevy too.

Our Army Man

Here are a few pictures of Trevor while he was at A.T. He is sitting next to the rounds they shoot out of their tank. Trevor loves to go to A.T. because it's the only time he gets to bic his head and grow out his mustache. I won't let him do those things at home. Yuck! While he was there, they made some small mistake while loading the tank and misfired and shot out of the designated area. Luckily no one got hurt, but I think they got in some trouble. It happened on Father's day so Trevor said his Father's Day wasn't that great. Anyway, we are glad to have him home and are ready to start our summer fun!

Missing Trevor

I know I have done alot of posts this week, but I have been very bored. Trevor left for his Annual Training for the Army last week, and he won't be home until next week. Needless to say, me and Keyton are kind of feeling a bit lonely. The other night when Keyton was saying his prayers he asked if he could "please hold daddy" it about made me cry. Keyton has also been playing Army guys "like Dad". So, we are dedicating this post to Daddy. Thank you for being such a good Dad, Husband, and Best Friend. We love you and miss you, but think it's awsome how willing you are to serve your country. We can't wait to see you when you get home. You have four loving arms waiting to give you a big hug when you get home. Love you Trevor From: Dayna and Keyton

My little Firefighter

The Fire Department in Pocatello had an open house and we decided to let Keyton go check it out. He got a fire tatoo, balloon, hat and a bag full of other goodies. The kids got to try on little turnouts, shoot the water hose, ride in the bucket truck, and put a fire out with an extinguisher. Keyton was too little to ride in the bucket, but he thought the rest of it was great. He had to shoot the water hose by himself of course and it was pretty wild. The firefighter was laughing at him. Keyton loves fire trucks, in fact he had to have a firetruck birthday cake. We are lucky because Grandpa Steve will always take him to the fire station when we go to Bear Lake and it makes Keyton's day. That and going to the farm with Nic but that's an entire different post.

Keyton's First Fishing Trip

This all began months before Easter. Keyton somehow got the idea in his head that he wanted a Scooby Doo fishing pole for Easter. He kept telling us and telling us just to make sure it really happened. He was sooo excited when he saw it Easter morning. However, he was pretty upset when we told him it was just for fishing and not to play around the house with. So we kept telling him that we would go fishing when it got warmer. Well, Trevor's dad (Grandpa Reddish) loves fishing and has been wanting to take Keyton up to the pond in Soda for a while. The first time they planned it, they got snowed out. And, as you can see, this trip wasn't much better. It was so cold, and at one point it started hailing on us. But they did catch 2 or 3 pretty good sized fish. Keyton was so excited to go but once he saw what fishing was and that a flopping fish was stuck to his fishing pole, he was less than impressed. You can see in the middle picture he was terrified of the fish. PRICELESS. But, just like him, after it was all said and done he said he had fun and told everyone he caught a huge fish.

Backpacking Escalante

This month me and Trevor got to do something that Trevor has been wanting to do for a very long time. Since we have been married he has talked about taking me backpacking in Escalante. So we finally planned a trip with his friend John Hart and his wife Randi. It was so amazingly beautiful. We did 2 slot canyons on the first day, then we went down into Escalante canyon. It was amazing down there. We had to lower our packs down this huge cliff and then walk through this crack in the wall to get down to the river. Then you just hike up the river for a few miles. When you are hiking there is like 800 ft cliffs above you on both sides. Pictures and words do not give it any sort of justice. I had a blast there and hope to go again sometime. We were gone for 4 days and that was really hard on both mom and Keyton. Now everytime I leave him alone he cries but I guess that just means he missed me and loves me. Here are some pics of our trip.

Everybody has been bugging me to start a blog. I love looking at other people's and have been wanting to do one but didn't have enough ambition to figure it out on my own. So I finally decided to give it a go. So here's to Lea, Sari, and Tessa. I FINALLY did it with a little help from Sari. Hope you all enjoy.
