Russ' Birthday Celebration Week!

Rusty turned the big 32 this week! he has one of those dreaded December Birthdays where he always gets the good ol' "this is for your birthday AND Christmas" gift. So we had a full week of celebrating for him so he would feel special.

We started out with a party at our house with my side of the Family, where Russ served up some of his famous favorite desert, Chocolate Waffles! mmmmm!

I can never get him to be serious...

Next we had a little Friend get together at Russ' restaurant of choice, which of course was Chili's (he cant pass up on a good burger)

"the gang"

James and Anne

What would a party be without Matt and Alissa?
John And Dia...
Darrin and Darcie and there newest addition (#5!)
Last but not least... Andy (minus his better half, We missed you Whit!)
once again.... not a serious face.
And to top it all off, we wrapped up the week with a party at the Lowry House which is always filled with good food and Fun!

Finally a "normal" face!
Happy Birthday Rusty! We Love You!

I just had to put this picture in because of Auggies poor face! he is walking/falling so much he looks like he's been beat up! poor guy!

Where do I begin?.....

I have been a major blog slacker! (sorry summer) Life has just been going by so fast, i feel like I haven't had a second to catch-up, so here it is... this is a jumbled mess of what we have been up to for the last few weeks.
First, The annual Gingerbread House
Every year Russ' mom does this amazing gingerbread house, and let's all the kids decorate it. usually all the kids have been to young so it ends up being an adult activity. But this year the kids were a perfect age to help out, and ended up doing most of it themselves! it turned out a huge success as always!
Uncle Jeffy carefully placing the chocolate chimney bricks...

Me, in charge of the frosting bag! whoo hoo!

Rusty and Paul doing the daddy day care for the little guys.
All the proud kids and the finished product.
Next, Milo has been loosing teeth!
this is a picture of him right after he lost one of his big front teeth...
And this is a picture of him after he lost his OTHER front tooth! I cant help but chuckle when i look at his silly little smile! now he can really sing "All I want for Christmas, is my two front teeth!"
Temple Square.

We Decided to go see the lights at Temple Square while the weather was still a little bit warm, Although Jeffy must have thought it was a little warmer than it really was, he was wearing SHORTS and FLIP FLOPS! everyone was looking at him like he was crazy!

And last but not least...
Auggie is Walking! He is walking everywhere, and into everything! he falls down a bit, but it doesn't phase him, he just gets back up and keeps going! he really is getting to be alot of fun, but he really knows how to razz up Milo. Poor Milo, went from being a calm and quiet only child to a big bully for a little brother!

I took Aug on the carousel at the mall, they only let us ride on the handicap seat because they said he was to small for the horses? He still had fun.

Halloween 2008


Is that Troy Bolton?
So Milo decided that this year he wanted to be (after seeing HSM3) Troy Bolton For Halloween. which was fine with me, because it was a super easy costume to put together!
Our only problem is getting the Paint color put of his hair now!...any suggestions?

Auggie was a cute little froggy this year so actually he was a "FR-AUGGIE" :)

"We're all in this together..." (sing along if you would like...)

The perfect couple... Darth and Pochahontas.

Auggie was loving Russ in this mask!

can you even belive how WARM it was this year!? I was able to wear flip flops, and short sleeves all night!

Getting ready to go Trick-or-treating!

Happy Froggy!

This was also this year at our Neighborhood halloween party, Does'nt Auggie make the cutest little girl?!

The Auggster... 9 months old!

Auggie had a little professional photo shoot, taken by the Amazing Tiff! she just captured his little personality so perfectly! theese are only a few of the MANY amazing moments she captured. he was such a little poser, I love this kid...
classic Auggie
(drooling with his tounge out)

Big boy!
He looks like such a little grandpa, wih his little "Mr. Rogers" sweater on.

I just love that little face...

trying to take his hat off...
I need to get some video on here of Auggie walking! he is able to take a few steps, and is climbing everything! (like the stairs!) here we go....

Dead Deers

if you get woosey at the sight of dead animals, or have a soft heart for the movie Bambi, then you may not want to proceed to look at these photos.

Well last week was the annual Deer Killing fest. so this is a special post for just for Russ, however, Russ dosent like to support my blogging addcition, so these photos will be narrated by...ME!

Everyone is so happy to have dead deer laying on the front lawn! nothing calls for a family photo opp like dead rotting animals.

I think Russ is trying to rip the antlers (is that what they are called?) off it's head?

Horray! we killed Bambi.
as you can tell it was a succesful hunt this year. And I am pretty sure they are allready planning next years! oh geeez!

two peas in a pod...

If you cant tell, things have been a little "lonely" around here, with Milo being gone to school all day, Auggie gets so bored hanging around with me all day! So we introduced him to a little friend we call "Gus" (that's Auggies evil fat twin, that comes out when he is mad) and by the looks of theses pictures he REALLY likes him. I just thought these were so cute, he has so much fun "playing" (with himself) in the mirror...

Also fascinated by the vanity lights...
Cracking himself up....

having a serious conversation with "Gus"!
* also a little mental note for myself... Auggie has his two little top teeth poking through now! ouch!

The Women

So, A bunch of us "women" decided to go see a late night showing of the new movie "the women" to our surprise, when we got there and the movie was starting, there was not another soul in there! i thought this was pretty funny, and happened to have my camera with me, so i decided to go prop it on the row in front of us, so we could get a shot of the PACKED theater! after setting the 10 second timer, I rushed back to my seat, and got totally HIGH CENTERED! my foot got stuck in the crack and I couldnt make it over in time, meanwhile no one offred to lend a helping hand, and Summer sure looks like she is having a great time watching me struggle! so this is the explanation for the butt shot.
{ Anne, Sarah, Nicole, Me, Summer }

and this was the second time around...Finally! made it!

As far as the Movie goes... it was a total "Chick-flick" but what do you expect with a title like "the women" I found it very entertaining, and would possibly even go see it again! so... call me!

Dove Huntin'

This was Milos First year he was able to go Dove Hunting with the boys. He was so excited because he got his own BB gun last year and has been dying to KILL something with it! eww gross! he was very proud of the Bird that he shot.

This picture just makes me giggle... Ok, I love how everyone is holding their bird, lets start from left to right. Mike is just holding it as if it were a toy or something he carries around often, he even has a drink in the other hand like its no big deal that their is a DEAD BIRD in his hands! Next, we have Megan only one of two girls in the whole Lowry grand kids (Lexi was inside doing something, that is why she is not in the pic.) But, Megan holding true to "girl" form is all decked out in Camo with pink accents and holding the bird as if it were a stinky sock or something? Then is my all time FAVORITE! little Jonah is actually putting that bird on his FACE!! disgusting!!!! he doesn't seem to mind at all that he is smelling a dead bird right up in his face! oh it just gives me the hee bee gee bees! And of course we have Milo striking a pose while holding a dead animal. i think i saw that in Vogue once? all in all it was a successfully nasty hunting trip. I'm sure their will be MANY more to come! o-yeah.
