Polar Bears

Warning, if you let your kids just put their feet in the pool...
knees will get wet...

shirts will come off...
Even though the water is only 52 degrees.
If you just put your feet in the pool, you're going to end up swimming.

We've Been Busy

The last few months have been a little busy. We moved into a new home that we love! It's a work in progress but here is a pic of the family room. We've been busy painting, repairing giant holes in the wall, installing light fixtures, replacing carpet... next on the long list is to get the pool ready for spring. Between moving, new church callings, being pregnant with boy #3, home work and life in general it's been a while since I have posted some pictures. So at the request of those far away, enjoy the following posts.

Be Mine

On Valentine's Day the boys look forward to our annual treasure hunt. They both get clues around the house for little Valentine prizes. Cole was thrilled with Mickey Mouse and Pluto. Payton found plenty of thing for his up-coming season of little league. I love my BOYS!

Happy Birthday Payton

Payton turned 7 years old on December 30th. We had a little party at home that day. Because of moving we waited until January to have a bigger party with all his friends. Payton wanted his party at Chuck E. Cheese. It was a dream come true for a bunch of boys... video games, pizza, cake & fun prizes.

Everyone loved hugs from the big mouse!

Happy New Year!

We celebrated New Year's Eve at our friends house. Grandpa & Grandma Scott sent a New Year's Eve survival package, complete with hats, silly string, horns and lots of other noise makers! Perfect for ringing in the new year.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Eve at our house is full of traditions. We always have a yummy dinner, decorate sugar cookies for Santa, open one present and read the Christmas story from the scriptures.

Christmas morning the boys woke up to find that Santa had come and brought plenty of cool GI Joe guys, tanks, helicopters, video games... We spent the entire day playing and relaxing.

December Fun

We had lots of fun in December! We got together with friends to make Christmas ornaments. We took our annual trip to Henderson to see awesome Christmas lights. The kids got to visit with Santa and tell him they just want lots of GI Joe toys. We spent a lot of time packing and waiting for a closing date for our new house. Someone special surprised us with Christmas cheer every night for the twelve days of Christmas. The kids enjoyed awaiting a knock at the door each night.

Idaho Trip

The first week of December was the last chance Brian had to fill his dear tag. So we made the long drive to Idaho. Brian, Greg and Keith spent the week hunting in the freezing cold. The kids and the girls went shopping, out to lunch and playing around the house. Sadly, for Brian, no dear. We had a great time just hanging out with family!
Brian did take a break from dear hunting for some pheasant hunting. Success!

Cole was so excited it snowed. He has been dying to wear his Spiderman snow boots!
