We had an awesome Thanksgiving at my parents house. Everyone was there, including my wonderful Grandma Bushman, except for Blaine, Amy and Logan;( We had such a fun time with everyone playing cards, Guitar Hero, Sing Star and just hanging out. Brigette loved being able to see everyone.

Love My Lineman

Just thought that I would post a couple more pictures of Zach and some guys in his class down at climbing school. He absolutly loves it, and I've got a disk with almost 300 pictures on it, plus they have more!!! Oh well they are pretty cool pictures! Zach is farthest on our right.
Hanging out at the top of the tower.

Looking down (not even to the top yet!!)

I thought this one looked pretty cool with all of them on top of the poles.

Workin' hard!!! Lookin' good!!!


Today Brigette & I went to Flagstaff. We met Sara and Stratton at Target, than we went to Flagstaff Mall and Ash & Vicki met us there. It was soo much fun!!! Here is Ashley dressing up at American Eagle... This is Stratton being crazy going down the slide head first, total boy!!! (He was soo good, he had to go to the dentist, and never said anything about his mouth hurting!!!)
And here is Briggie, trying to keep up with Stratton!! She was soo excited to see her friend, she kept calling him "boy" it was pretty funny. Stratton was like, "she keeps calling me "Boy" thats not my name!!!"

We had such a blast. I love spending time with Sara and Ash. And it is even better now because our kids (mine and Sara's) are such good friends!!! I can't wait to see her again!!!

Pink Boots

Every day I ask Brigette what shoes she wants to wear, every day its the same answer...

She LOVES her pink, John Deere cowboy boots that her daddy bought her, apparently Mason loves them too...

Its pretty nice because she can put them on herself, although they aren't always on the right feet, and sometimes her pants are tucked into them!

I decided that there are just some things I don't really ever want to see my husband doing!!! This is one of them... I know he loves what he does and that's fine with me, but when you are climbing a tower that is 150ft tall and you can hear the electricity around you, I just don't want to see it. Makes me sick to my stomach!!! (Although he does look really hot in this pic!!!!)

Hard days work???

Zach just sent me this picture, I am so glad I am not a grunt for these guys. I don't even know who the guy is, just that they call him "Pirate", (thats what the eye patch and parrot is for). Must be tough work for these apprentices'!!

Oh Sweet Child of Mine!!!

Little kids just amaze me. Brigette is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. She is the one who always wants to read scriptures and say prayers. Last night it was time to say prayers, so with Zach on speaker phone, Brigette decided she got to pray. We always help her but this time she just went off by herself, something like this:
"Heavenly Father, thank you this day,
thank you for food,
thank you for couch,
thank you for table..."
By this point I am trying not to giggle, and get the phone closer to her so Zach can hear better, she then opens her eyes sees what I am doing, grabs the phone and yells in
"Hi Daddy!! Did you hear my prayers??"
I have to admit it was the cutest thing she did all day!!! What a sweet little girl!!!

When She's the Best!!!

Lately I have been noticing that Brigette (like me) can sleep pretty much anywhere. Although I really don't think that I can sleep standing up! Isn't this when they are the best!! (don't you just love the wide open mouth!!!) Standing up, completely crashed!
Taking a nap at the office.

Standing up sleeping...again!

In the car.

Sunday Snow

Sunday was soo nice!! We went to church, came home and were just hanging out, lounging around, watching football, and eating steak and potato's when Brigette starts yelling "it's raining!!" So I check outside, its not raining, its SNOWING!!! She takes off running for her room yelling "I go play in it!!" She brought me her coat, socks and boots. What a smart gal. Too bad there wasn't anything out there yet!!! And by the time there was almost enough to play in, it was dark! Poor Zach had to drive back to Phoenix in some pretty cruddy weather, only til about Munds Park though!! I am so excited, I love snow!!!

Girlie Girl??

I decided since Zach was bummed about us having another girl, I would show him why Brigette is just as fun as any boy. In fact my dad told us one day, (no offense to my nephews, I love them) Brigette is tougher than all those boy cousins of hers! At Zachs Uncle Jeffs house last weekend I walked outside to see Brigette climbing over the fence, needless to say, she made it, didn't fall, and played with the dogs, cat, and chickens for half the morning. I took her to the mall and she played on the toys. The only kid there going down the slide on her back, head first. Some of her other favorite things include, riding in the rex, bugeling for elk, and playing any kind of ball game she can get her hands on. She was very upset we wouldn't buy her the helmet...
But I actually want to know, any of you out there with girls, are they all this crazy??

Weekend with the Butlers

Zach has been in Phoenix since October. It really has not been fun. Brigette cries every time he comes home and than leaves. Last week I got pretty sick so the RV Park gave me the week off. We got to go stay with Zach since last Wednesday and Zach went back this morning. Pretty much all we did was drive but it was nice to spend more than one day with him. Brigette cried all morning because he had to leave. This past weekend we went to Show Low. Marcus and Traci blessed Jack. It was really a nice weekend. Traci's parents had everyone over, and they served us lunch. The food was awesome, and Marcus gave a beautiful blessing. This little boy has got a great mission in life!! Here is Grandpa Butler (Brigette calls him Pops) with his 2 grandkids, Brigette & Jack.Brigette giving Jack some kisses (sorry these are so dang dark!!)

Brigette dressing up Pops Sunday morning before church!!

There's No Place Like Home

Brigette as Dorothy for Halloween. Her favorite part were her red sparkly shoes!
