Halloween Lunch

At Hycomp, we go to lunch every year for Halloween... only if you are dressed up though. It's always an event I look forward to. It's just a fun day in the office to be laid back, a little crazy, enjoy the season and dress up as whatever you want... well with a few limitations to keeping it work appropriate. This year did not disappoint. We went to Pizza Pie Cafe.
 The ladies of Hycomp.... Stacey, Anica, MacKenzie, Amnda, BrieAnna, Brooke, Tara and Holly
 The 4 prize winners... Jeff got most Unique, Stacey got scarriest, Reid got best overall and Marty got funniest.

My Best Friend

I love this girl. Megan has been one of my closest and best friends since 9th grade. I can't imagine life without her.

Playing with Collin

I think I have the most adorable nephews in the world. The other day Collin and Shayna came over. Andy and Kira were at Grandma and Grandpa's house for a while so Collin got to play with Kira's toys while Shayna and I watched Vampire Diaries. He was so cute. When Kira got home it was even cuter. She'd ask Collin to help her or sit down or hold her doll or come here, no matter what it was Collin did it. It was adorable.

Pumpking Carving and Halloween Cookies

A few weekends ago we got together to carve pumpkins and make Halloween sugar cookies. It was a blast. Maria was all artistic with the cookies and they turned out awesome. Kira helped out until she got her cookie and then she just wanted to eat it and watch movies. Megan, Maria and Andy carved the pumpkins... I think they look awesome.

Yard Work

Andy and I have still been working on the yard. It's coming along great, well I guess until the snow hit this week. This picture was taken last week so there's even more progress since then. I love it! It looks so nice. Will be super fun next year to plant trees/shrubs/flowers and have bon fires!

Jeep Ride

A few weekends ago Andy, Megan and I took a sunday jeep drive. We went through BlackSmith Fork over to Eden area and ate lunch at Shooting Star Salon. Then we headed back through Avon pass. It was a nice drive. Beautiful views.

USU Homecoming Parade

Saturday was the USU Homecoming Parade. It was long and hot but it was fun. Rhythm Connection changed our colors this year so we got to show off our shirts and warmups.

What a Weekend!

Andy, Kira and I had a blast this past weekend. We had quite the eventful Saturday and Sunday!
Kira and I were in the USU Homecoming Parade Saturday morning (watch for seperate post on that). After the parade we went to Angies and got some food then headed home to do some work on the house. We were able to borrow a tractor from a friend that made doing yard work so much easier! Now Andy's all jealous and thinking he needs a tractor!
First we moved Kira's play house to the corner of the yard. It was tricky to move and it didn't quite make it facing the direction we wanted but it will work. It started breaking so we eneded up leaving it where we got it, which is where we wanted it just not facing the direction we wanted. We'll make due though. We plan on re painting, fixing the railing, adding new carpet and drapes and fixing it up for Kira. She loves to play in it.

Kira also got to help on the tractor... notice her Barbie... Barbies and Tractors what better can it get?

We also finished digging out our pond. Andy and I have been slowly digging this for about 2 months. The ground is really rocky so it's been rough. The tractor dug it in no time and it's deeper than we would have gone by hand but it will be awesome!

After moving dirt and sand around the back yard on Saturday and most of the day sunday we were ready to start the patio and fire pit area. You can see in the back of the photo where a gravel parking space will be (for the boat and Snowmobile Trailer). The fire pit will be awesome! We got the fire pit from a neighbor by my parents and my dad gave us the cement circles. It's not done but it's getting there!
 Andy taking a break!

Here's our last project... The deck. It used to look way different. I wish I would have taken a before picture. It wasn't enclosed and the railing was really wobbly and unstable. Andy and I (well mostly Andy) built the half walls, stained the deck, added lights, I did the flowers, and we added the tiki torches. It looks so good at night. We borred a patio set to get us by for now but next summer we'll have a new set. It's a very relaxing area.
 During all of Andy's hard work with the Tractor we decided to pull the sprinkler out and play. Kira and I had alot of fun... mostly Kira and me taking pictures. Then Andy joined in. Kira even dragged Max through the sprinkler. The first picture is classic. She kept closing her eyes when we ran through it!

Saturday night we headed to Crystal Hot Springs to relax. Andy, Kira, Stacey, Megan and a friend. It was very relaxing and a great night out.
