So Much Has Happened...

I think it has been eight months since I last posted something. Wow, time flies so fast!
Here it goes....Went to Lagoon. Beckam started out good and then wiggled his way out. Not so good. We didn't try any other rides after that one.
We loved Lagoon, but why does it cost so much dang money?

Our neighbors adopted a fox when it was just a baby. She is growing super fast and is best friends with our dog. We call her Swiper (her real name is Foxy) because she steals anything she can get her paws on.

Went to the cabin with the fam. The boys stayed in their pj's and went hunting for Heckedy Peg a mean old wicked witch in the forest every day. Don't you love Crew's hat.

Crew became a real ranger in Yellowstone. The rangers had Crew repeat an oath and gave him a pin. He still to this day will not take off the vest or the hat.
Whenever we would enter a building Crew would yell, " ranger here, everyone clear the area."

Beckam learned to walk.

Went to the zoo. I was kind of sad that there were no bears and that all of the zebras died. What the heck is going on there?

Random Updates.......

So my camera broke on me right before Christmas, so I have been using my camcorders camera. It doesn't have a flash so my pic aren't very good. Anyway, here are a few random pictures.

Crew fell asleep eating his apple. I had to pry his mouth open to get the apple out so he didn't choke. About a half an hour later he woke up and finished his apple. Ha ha ha.

The boys on Christmas morning in their spiderman jammies. This is Beckam's life..... being completely mauled by Crew. I love his expression.

So my sister would totally kill me if she saw that I put this picture on, but since she doesn't have a blog...
We did a talent show for Christmas Eve and all of the cousins did the actual dance to Single Ladies. It was soooo funny.

Hissssssssy Fit

This picture makes them look so cute....but don't be fooled.

So there are three things that I am truly truly scared of. I call them the triple S, spiders, snakes and sharks. I think that the reason they start with an S is because Satan created them. OK, so here is my horrible story.
I got out of the shower yesterday and casually turned the corner and started down the hallway. Halfway down the hall I noticed something long and snakelike on the floor. I closed my eyes and thought, O please let this be one of Crew's plastic snakes. I inched my way closer to the serpent's tough flickered out at me. I let out a blood curling scream and flew back into the bedroom. Literally beads of sweat started pouring down my face. I had no idea what to do. Then I remembered that the baby was having tummy time in on the floor. I opened the door ran down the hall and leaped as high and as far as I could over the snake, grabbed the baby and jumped onto the counter. Since I had just gotten out of the shower I hadn't put on any clothes yet. I had to grab the little receiving blanket that the baby was laying on and try to cover myself up before I called Shane's 70yr old grandma to come over to rescue me. She came flying into the house holding a broom. I was think, what in the heck is she going to do with a broom. I had a bucket that was sitting on the counter that I had thrown on top of the snake (partially, I think I may have hurt it's tail). Marge (Shane's grandma) slowly picked up the bucket and the dang thing jetted out at her. She started screaming, I started screaming and so did the baby. Marge slammed the broom down on the snake and when she lifted it back up........the snake was GONE. Yes, the snake was gone, nowhere to be found. I was hysterical. I grabbed my clothes got in the car called Shane and said I would not be back until Satan (the snake) was gone. Later that night Shane found the snake curled up behind the stove. He took the snake down the lane and let it go. Oh the joys of living in the country.

We had our annual Halloween party and it was horrifying! My mom and aunts came up with the scariest things. My mom was one of Ted Bundy's victims. She hid down in Nichols Park and we had to take a lock of her hair. As we were walking away (running as fast as I possibly could) my dad aka Ted Bundy came chasing after us.
My aunt Cindi and Grandpa were in this old abandoned house that actually had a tombstone built into the floor. I seriously have never been so scared.

My cousins Brin, Addy and Kirsti.
Kindi (love the snowman outfit), Adam and his family. His mom was dressed as a witch behind the Kaysville theatre. We had to take live bugs from her.
Kate and I dressed as a Cowgirl and Indian.

Zion Ponderosa

We went to Zion Ponderosa this last weekend. All 18 Phelps packed into a cabin, a little crowded, but we had a blast. We did paintball, the zip line, rock climbing, volleyball, and horseback riding. Shane killing the rock climbing wall.
Crew said he wanted to do the zip line. I thought that we would get to the top and he would look down (50ft) and say he didn't want to go. I was so wrong they hooked him on and he said he was going to go flying and walked right off.
He kept his head back so he could look into the sky. It looked so weird to see this little guy flying through the air.

Crew and Duke getting ready to do the zip line for the second time.

Horseback riding

Random Pics

Crew watches me everyday put on my makeup. When I wasn't looking he got into my makeup and put it all over his face.
As soon as Crew has his binki, (I'm still trying to get rid of) blanket, and baby, he is out cold.

Beckam loves his big brother. Beckam is starting to smile alot now.
