Happy Halloween

Robin vs. Bobba Fett?
(I am in costume here

Yes..... I am Kat Von D from LA Ink
Kobe as Bobba Fett
Roah claims the "R" on his costume is not for Robin, but for Roah 
We don't know what Roah is trying to do in this picture
I have to say Halloween is so much fun as your kids get older.  Mainly because the boys were at least 4 houses ahead of me Trick-or-Treating, and finished a lot sooner than I had expected.  

Can't wait til next year!

Great Ideas...

I always think I have the BEST ideas, and 75% of the time they don't turn out the way I planned.  I always want to paint my walls, but never think I have the time. But after ruining our master bathroom with "Brianne-mixed-paint" over TWO YEARS AGO,  I finally bought paint and painted our bathroom.  Not a big paint project until I started just putting brush strokes of paint on my bedroom walls, and now it's turned into a huge project.  So much for my great ideas.....

Yes, I finally got around to having Kobe's birthday party.  Kobe wanted to take his friends to see CLONE WARS the movie, and he wanted everyone to be dressed up STAR WARSY. Of course Roah had to be Robin from Batman.   
These boys are so funny and hilarious to hang out with.

8 year old boy humor is so funny has to be the funniest thing ever.
Love Krews expression in the picture.  Sweetest boy ever and he's always so polite.

It was such a fun party and hopefully Kobe  will remember this party.

Kobe's B-Day Part Dose

More pictures of Kobe's Birthday.  I've been meaning to put these on my blog and life's been a little CRAZY!!!  So I'm finally getting around to it. 
He makes me laugh so hard.
I Love how animated and excited Kobe gets.
Kobe was named after Cobi Jones (soccer player for the LA Galaxy) and he idolizes him.  So for his birthday Owen got him a soccer ball signed by Cobi Jones.   
Roah was pretty frustrated that it wasn't his birthday, and told us he felt like he deserved 2 birthdays a year.

I was Tagged by Codi

Here are the rules to the Quirks Tag
Link the Person who Tagged you. 
Mention rules on your blog. 
Tell about 6 quirks of yours. 
Tag 6 fellow bloggers to do the same. Leave a comment on their blog to let them know. 

Okay, so let me just tell EVERYONE about all the retarded quirks about me. 
(Like most don't already know)

#1 - I have this fear of people thinking I'm lazy.  So a lot of the time I will make sure that I have done more than them that day. So I'm able to say "Oh you've done that today, top this."  Okay I really am not that rude but in my mind there is a definite fear of being the one who has done the least or not being a team player.

#2 -  It bothers me a little, when people have the same first name as me.  I really don't know why, but I hate the feeling of hearing someone call your name and come to find out their NOT talking to you.  Drives me crazy!

#3 - I LOVE to play pranks on people.  It truly is one of the  funniest things to do. When I run, I really will try to come up with the best pranks.  But on the flip side to that I loved to get pranked also.  It keeps life interesting. ( And I will always get the upper hand.) But I hate when people say they love to prank and they can dish it out, but not willing to take it.

#4 - I'm the biggest procrastinator ever!  In my mind I honestly believe that I can almost get anything done in a small amount of time. So, I will start at 8:30am Sunday morning getting my kids ready, myself ready, checking my blog, e-mailing, doing the dishes, trying on shoes that I haven't worn in a long time deciding if I like them more now, ironing 3 outfits, and making sure that all my T.V. shows are tevo'd, when church starts at 9:00am (I really believe that I can do it in that time).   

#5 - I have to iron everything!  Even for my boys.  And yes I have many times ironed their underwear.  I don't know what it is about cloths being wrinkly, but they look so much better ironed.  And I refuse to wear a pair of jeans that have not been ironed.  Yes, I'm crazy!

#6 - Every Saturday morning Owen will go get doughnuts for himself and the boys.  And every Saturday morning he asks me if I want one.  Any every Saturday morning I say,"No thanks, I for sure DO NOT WANT A DOUGHNUT!"  And he will bring back doughnuts and keep them on the counter in the kitchen.  And every Saturday he will go to get another doughnut and all of the frosted tops of the doughnuts are eaten off.  And every Saturday morning he we have a discussion about how if I want a doughnut then I need to tell him I want a doughnut.  And how it's not okay to eat the tops of the doughnuts and leave the rest there. He He He

Last night Mallory, Marcee, and I went to listen to our friend's band play at the Velour. Cory Mon and the Starlight Gospel were amazing!  They will be coming out with their third CD in December  and I would recommend their music to anyone.  
Loved, Loved it!

Track Day

For Owen and his brother Lui, track day at Miller Motorsports Park is like Christmas morning for children.  So for Owen's birthday I gave him a track day.  They left at 6:00a.m. and hauled their motorcycles to Tooele.  There, they get to ride their bikes as fast as they want around the 4.5 mile track til 5:00p.m.  And seriously it is their favorite thing to do.  (I think they pretend like their real motorcycle racers.) 
Whatever floats their boat 
The boys LOVE to go watch their dad ride his motorcycle.  Roah is helping Owen put on his gloves, and just wishing his mom would let him have a motorcycle. 
(Pure Refusal) 
Owen's brother Lui, getting ready to go out on the track.

Both motorcycles came back intact.  Even though there were at least a dozen wrecks by other riders that day (they lost count after 12.) 

The only difference between men and boys, are the cost of their toys

Dream Van

I spotted this  van while we were in California.  And I've decided to trade my truck in for this SWEET RIDE!

Laguna Seca

We went to California last week for the AMA motorcycle races.  It was amazing!!!  T.V. does it NO JUSTICE!  I loved it as well as the boys and of course Owen.  Owen looked like a little boy on Christmas morning. Perma-Grin the entire 2 days of races.  We bought hats for Kobe and Roah to get signed by the racers, and as you can see Roah did just that as well as sign his name on the top of his hat.  Our conversation started, 
ME: Roah why did you sign your name on your hat?
  ROAH: It's not fair that all the racers get to sign my hat, and not me!  
He's got a point.

Kobe with Josh Herrin.  Josh was so friendly, he even promised Kobe his helmet if he won the race.  He took third to Kobe's disappointment.

Roah's Idol and favorite racer, Tommy Hayden.  Anytime Kobe and Roah are playing motorcycles, Roah is Tommy Hayden and Kobe is his brother, racer Nicky Hayden. 

Owen and his brother Lui.  Both have motorcycles and were in HEAVEN the entire races.  (Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary. He He He)
Owen and the boys with Rossi's old bike.  I'm not going to explain who Rossi is , but his nickname is "The Doctor"  because he is that good at racing.

Roah and his cousins waving to the bikes as they were racing. 

Owen in front of the famous "cork-screw" turn.  It's famous for it's 3 story drop and tight left and right turn.  (It looks like he's grinning b/c of the billboard sign in the background!)
It was so fun and I can't wait to go to more races this next year.  
(Maybe I should start racing motorcycles.)

San Francisco

One of my favorite cities is San Francisco.  Owen and the boys had never been, so on our way to Laguna Seca (Motorcycle races) we stopped and experienced a bit of the attractions of S.F.
