New Christmas Pajama Night

Here we are at West Yellowstone getting ready for Christmas. Russell hadn't made it there yet so we are missing him in the photo. Sorry honey. We had such fun with all our family there. What a blessing it was to be able to spend time with those that we love the most!

Thanksgiving, Trotting Across America and Birthdays

Come to find out, apparently my entire family was doing a turkey trot on Thanksgiving morning. Eric and family were trotting in Hailey, Idaho, Blake and family in Ohio, and the rest of us were trotting in Draper, Utah. When we Utahn's were done with our turkey trot I checked my phone and had texts from Eric and Blake telling me about their trots. I think I knew Blake and Lindsey were doing a turkey trot but not Eric and his family. This is a photo from Eric's turkey trot. Doesn't it just make you warm and snuggly. This is his his wife and two cute kids, mother-in-law, and his sister-in-law and her hubby, . I didn't ask him what the temperature was in Bellevue but it doesn't look to awfully warm.

The Utah turkey trot was called the Human Race. It was a 5K. We had two groups of entries. The stroller gang which was Russell, Meredith, Saria, Easton and Grace. Royce, AubRee, Brittany, and Colby ran and I walked. AubRee was the winner at just over 24 minutes, Royce came in 2nd at the 25 minute mark, Colby was around 30 minutes, Brittany just over 31 minutes and I walked it in just over 37 minutes. It was pretty cold, 28 degrees and it took us a while to warm up after it was over. It was quite a fun thing to do and the general opinion was that we should do it again.

Besides the turkey trot on Thanksgiving it was also Royce's birthday. We went to the brunch at the Little America for our Thanksgiving so we celebrated his birthday and Thanksgiving there. Happy birthday Royce.

Pumpkin Carving at Grandpa Greats!

I was in the Boise area for the state soccer tournament so got to spend some time at my parent's home. One night Saria and Easton came over and we carved these scary pumpkins. It was a lot of fun. Easton was pretty much disgusted by the guts of the pumpkin and was wanting to wipe his hands off every few minutes. They each did their own and thought it was a treat!

Ohio State Barneys, Revisited

We had the opportunity to spend several days in Ohio visiting Blake and Lindsey and their super cute, super nice, super duper little boys, Caleb and Spencer. It was such fun to wake up to the little boys ready to climb in bed with us and snuggle.

We did lots of fun stuff like go to a 3D movie, (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs)

We fed the ducks, ate blue ice cream, and ate at one of our favorite Ohio restaurants, Schmidts, a German place, and went to a Cincinnati Reds, St. Louise, Cardinals baseball game.

It was nice spending time with Blake and Lindsey, thanks for a fun weekend!!!!

Finally, the Secret is Out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My granddaughters love Miley Cyrus, not just kind of love her but totally love her so many weeks ago I bought tickets to the Miley Cyrus concert for my three oldest granddaughters and myself. Since then I have been sending anonymous postcards to them with little bits of information about the coming event, for a long time they had no idea where the postcards were coming from and finally figured that out last week. Well, the concert is tomorrow, and this is a video of my blondie granddaughters getting the final postcard in the mail today telling them who the concert is. They were pretty excited. Their parents are bringing them to SLC tomorrow for the fun. Enjoy!!!

Look At Those Legs!

Saturday, September 26th, found us in Elk Ridge, UT at a local golf course. My hubby,and brother hit the links while my sister-in-law and myself were driving the golf carts. It was kind of fun watching hubby and bro. go from hole to hole showing off their golfing abilities,(or lack thereof). I had to think several times that they looked pretty cute in those shorts, golf shirts and ball caps. They may not have hit the ball as well as the pros but they looked the part superbly! It was a fun day, ending with the BYU football game for the guys and the Relief Society Women's Conference for the gals. Thanks to a different sister-in-law we had primo seats at the conference center for the broadcast, thanks LB! After those events we girls met the guys for dinner and then we headed north to our home and they headed south to theirs. Thanks for a fun day.

Labor Day with family who are good friends.....

We had a super fun Labor Day weekend in Victor with many of our dear family members. Besides the wind that gave us these beautiful hairdos we enjoyed Saturday together visiting Jackson Hole, Jackson Lake and Jackson Lake Lodge, Jenni Lake and ended the evening at the Bar J Wranglers Chuckwagon dinner and show. The Bar J Wranglers where so fun and very entertaining.

It was nice having my parents and two sisters and their spouses with us for the weekend. We started out Friday night playing Guitar Hero and while some of us were pretty good at it, some were not, Ha Ha. Mom was pretty good at the drummer's foot pedal and Rae Jean was quite a singing, dancing queen. There were a few who didn't want anything to do with it, so they had the joy of sitting around and watching the rest of us.

Anyway thanks to all who come over to visit us for our last big weekend in Victor. Look forward to many more fun times together. Love you all!

Meet the newest Brittany Barney

This is our nephew Jacob Barney. His father is Gregg who is Russell's brother. Two of Gregg's sons have married beautiful Brittanys in the past year and a half and have gone from a family of all sons to one that has two Brittanys for daughter-in-laws. Is that crazy or what? Something that is even crazier is that there is a Brittany cousin on both sides of their family. I guess that was a really popular name 21 years ago.

Here are Gregg and Valerie and their very handsome sons and new Brittany.

Visitors to our little home in Salt Lake.....

Our little apartment was invaded with family over the weekend and part of the week. It was GREAT! Royce and AubRee made Salt Lake a part of their travels home to California so we were excited for that. Meredith brought the kids so they could all have a nice long visit, well a short visit I guess. We were wall to wall sleeping at night with six people sleeping in our little living room. We didn't spend a whole lot of time in the apartment so we survived. We live in such a nice location in Salt Lake, you have to stop by for a visit. (you may want to wait for the temperature to drop because it gets pretty toasty here)

We had several fun trips to the pool while everyone was here. When the grand kids came previously Easton wouldn't even leave the side of the pool. Now he is swimming the length of the pool with the big kids. Way to go Woostie!

Bossy Bob's Bunch


We have called ourselves Bossy Bob's Bunch for so long now, how did that ever start? We had a great family reunion just a week ago. It was great to see all my brothers and sisters and their spouses and kids. We have grown from a family of 11 to over 60 in not so many years. Some of my fondest memories are of family reunions as a child and now we are the adults, crazy. Thanks to Julie and her family for a fun time together. My family gets to be in charge of our next reunion, two years from now

We're Home!

Okay, it has been 11 days since I have blogged or been on the computer or changed my blog's background or typed or read an email or anything computer related. I think I have had severe computer withdrawal, not good! It is great to have this laptop on my lap getting warmed up from the heat it generates and hearing the clicking of each key as I type this blog. AHHhhhhh!! Nice.

We had a great vacation and I will write about it and add some photos at a later date, I have lots of stuff to put away right now so TTFN!
