This was Jaime's favorite gift. JK Alex got her a Justin Beiber toothbrush that sings while you brush your teeth. It was soooo funny. He got it from the dollar store. Not surprised it ended up there and still people didn't want it for $1, unless for a joke.

We love you Ryan !!!
Ice Castles in Midway, Utah
Mike had fun skiing multiple times with the boys this winter. Jaime and I were more than willing to stay home and do anything else. Skiing isn't our thing.
Luckily Adam was ok. Mike has this on video and it's funny to watch it in slow motion and backwards.
Alex moved up to Logan in December. He took over someone's contract in an apartment complex who was getting married. He is working up there and trying to decide what he wants to do school wise. In the fall he purchased his first car and before even making the first payment was in a wreck and it was totaled. Luckily no one was injured. Amazingly enough, the insurance actually took care of him and he was able to get another car.
No I won't buy it for you. It's $100.
Happy 21st birthday Alex
Adam did this at school. I thought it was super cute.
Happy 22nd Anniversary to us !!!!
boys had a blast with these giant jaw breakers
It's sooo nice they finally get along and are friends. This is a mother's greatest dream!!
Silly Ethan !!
Happy Bday to me. I am 10 1/4

Jaime and her fake baby Tristin. He didn't end up getting programmed correctly and therefore didn't make a sound the entire weekend. She wanted to have the "real" experience and so she tired again the following weekend with another baby.
Her new baby was Emily and got her up twice a night and needed to be fed and changed every couple of hours. Mike and I got a kick out of watching her and we were so glad it was her taking care of the fake baby and not us.
Ethan babysitting his "niece"
our first granddaughter
a worn out teen mom
Ethan fell and skinned his knee. To make it all better I let him go swimming in my jetted tub. It cheered him up instantly.
Spring time is here
Planting the garden for Family Home Evening
My cute old man
Happy 19th B-day Ryan. We love and miss you so much. We had a family party in your honor. We let off balloons in the cemetery. We think of you always and can't wait to be with you again some day.
