Our life Lately

Grandpa Ben had a stroke on Sunday, November 15th.  He was in the hospital for a week.  Here are Payson and Thatcher taking a peek.  Everyone loves Grandpa Ben.  We are sure sorry this has happened. 
I took Mom and Dad down to see Cyprus High School's musical production of Scrooge.  Colton was in the orchestra.  He is an awesome musician ! 
We had front row seats !
Treyson and Tagg reading a story.
I love this picture!
Zac has been working on forming up the base of his fence.  Monday they got it poured. 
Unfortunately they ended up about 35' short, so it will have to go on the next pour, hopefully next Monday. 
Thanksgiving - Annual Rich family picture :)
Tagg, Zac, CJ, Thatcher, Treyson.
It was again another BAD BURN DAY, so for the 3rd year in a row, our annual Thanksgiving Burn was cancelled :(
Tagg, Colton, Lance (home from Stanford), Thatcher, and Tagg
Our bellies are FULL !!!
Playing CLUE 
Hiding in the closet
Taking a nap
The Bettinson Bunch with Larissa, a German foreign exchange student.  She is very sweet, and we enjoyed having her with our family for her very first Thanksgiving !
Day after Thanksgiving - working on getting the second set of forms set up.
What a cold day to be working outside, but it doesn't stop Zac !
Hanging out at Grandma Ben's in the cold back bedroom, watching a Christmas movie.
Friday afternoon. 
Inviting Lucky in to eat some leftover pancakes for Breakfast.
We watched Landon and Kacey's kids overnight so they could go Black Friday shopping.
This was early Friday morning. 
Layne tried to fix Grandma LuAnn's bathroom sink, and the 70+ year old pipe just disingrated !
Thank goodness we have a plumber  in the family ;)
Grandpa is home from the hospital, resting comfortably.
Hospice is working with the family, and Kelly gets in tonight (Saturday) from Michigan.
Grandma Ben is a trooper.  We love them both so very much.

Pics from AZ

Here is Manda's early morning xfit group.  She is loving it !

Cam is on Instagram, and the only way I get pics is to STEAL them (by taking a screen shot). She sure is growing up, I don't know how I feel about this !
With her cousin, Sara. I think they were trying for the SERIOUS look ;)

Tagg's great day of wrestling !!

It started Friday night, as Grandpa and Dad and Mom talked to the boys about wrestling which would be the next day.
They practiced moves........
Grandpa Roger's still got it !

Picture is kinda blurry - but you get the excitement !!
Mom, I DID it !!!
High Fives for Grandpa
More instructions.
And the gold medal !!
Treyson couldn't wrestle because he was sick with stomach flu, and Thatcher WOULDN'T wrestle, because he was being a little stinker......  It was 30 below in the gym.....maybe that had something to do with it :)

Things I missed........(blogging about)

Payson loves to go to Crossfit with mom and dad (Brightyn no so much :) - Chans always has treats for the kids when their parents are finished with the WOD.
This is the cute little clubhouse in Landon and Kacey's backyard.  The kids LOVE it !
The other night at the pumpkin carving party, they kids clamored and played around the go-cart as much as they did the pumpkins !  Fun times !!
That same night, after carving, we took Pays and Bright home (because Landon and Kacey were down seeing Garth Brooks) to bath.  I told Payson I needed to wash his face, and he didn't want me to, so I had to take a picture of his face on my phone, and show him JUST how dirty his face was !!  He let me finally :)
The next morning, the kids woke up, and their parents were HOME with them, sleeping on our living room floor :)
We had pancakes of course, and here is my BEST flipper.  He's quite the expert :)
Zac is still welding on the fence.  All of the poles are lifted up and placed and tacked in place, now he just needs to go back and firmly weld all of the joints.  I think he about 1/3 done now.  It is SLOW going. 
Last Saturday was a beautiful day - wish the weather would have stayed as warm.   He tried to weld a little each afternoon after work, but it gets dark so soon, and cold, so he can only get so much done. 
I'm just finishing up the last of the tomatoes out of the garden.  Can you believe it ?!?!  November, and STILL fresh tomatoes.  I think this is the longest we've ever had them.  They are DELICIOUS !!!
October was a fun month as usual.  Grandma Carol had a fun Halloween party for all of her grandkids, and Payson and Brightyn loved it of course. 
FUN PIC !!   A man with no head, balancing a future cheerleader in the air !!  HAHA
Kacey and Brightyn coming down the slide at Black Island Farms
Harper (Keysto and Kaley's daughter) celebrated her birthday at Black Island Farms, they all had a great time !
Then it was the Girls Halloween Party (Brooks/Richins), and Kacey and Brightyn, along with her mom and sisters attended.  
Here they all are.  Kaley, Brittney, Kacey and Carol dressed as characters from the movie, "Inside Out".  They are each emotions.......I think Kaley was Angry (though she doesn't look it in this pic), Brittney was Sad (I think),  Kacey was Happy (I think), and Carol was Anxious or Scared (I think).  
Grandma Shirlee was able to celebrate Grandparents day at Morgan Elementary with Tagg and Treyson.  (I can't remember where I was...... I think in St. George hiking Zion.
I was able to help with Treyson's Webelos Scout group one night.  We went Geo-caching.  Lynelle Rich, one of my FAVORITE people is his leader.  Ethan Pace is the other boy.  There are just the two of them right now, and they have a great time.
