Adam was soaked and freezing but had fun.
White Pine Lake was freezing but the boys still got in. Ethan was definitely more daring than Adam.
Hyrum Dam- while camping up in Logan Canyon
A little get away to Park City- We swam in the crater up there.
We enjoyed our trip to South Dakota. It was so beautiful and fun to see family. The Lotts from Arkansas joined us, and Jeri came. We had a blast.
So I ordered a pair of shoes for Ethan online. I guess I ordered the toddler size by mistake. Ha Ha!!
We love our cute fuzzy chickens. We have 12 now.
Geo caching fun in Wyoming !!
The Aggie Scrimmage. The boys love doing this each year. Free food, games and fun. It was very amusing to watch them clobber each other.
Ethan has no fear and loved getting down with the players.
"It's the most wonderful time of the year." That is what parents sing when school begins again.
Jaime 11th grade
Adam 6th Ethan 3rd
Ethan was so excited to start piano lessons. He is doing great and is learning so quickly. It's cute to watch him teach things to Adam, who doesn't want to take lessons. Who knows, maybe he will change his mind.
Adam was so excited to get braces until he finally got them. Now he knows first hand why we had told him that braces are no fun.
We love Tomato Days in Hooper. So many fun activities and people. The boys were thrilled they each earned $11 from the veggie show. Ethan spent his five minutes later at a booth.
last camping trip of the year
a lott of veggies
We love you Ryan!!!
Jaime went to Homecoming stag with a few friends. They wanted the German foreign exchange students to experience an American dance.
Isabel, our German exchange student was so excited to go to Wal-Mart.
Happy 9th b-day Ethan!!!
Cute little kitten's messing around with Alex's phone.
It looks like a pile of stuffed animals. Wrong. Ethan informed me that the fox and wolf are eating the horse. Funny kid.
Adam enjoying playing flag football again this year. He and Ethan are still trying to convince me to let them play tackle. Sorry kiddo. Alex's injury (6 days in the hospital for a perforated intestine) years ago playing football kind of cured me of tackle football.
Mike and I went to Okinawa, Japan to visit my parents on their mission. It was an amazing experience. It is so pretty and the people are very nice. The bathrooms are crazy and have signs to tell you how to use the toilet.
There are literally vending machines almost on every corner- even in the middle of nowhere.
Not sure what I was. I just like wearing crazy wigs. All the kids in Ethan's class asked me if it was my real hair. I said yes.
Having fun at the dollar store
A new tradition of ours is to build Ryan a snowman. Ethan told us how to get the second part up on the bottom. He says they roll it on when they make them at school. Sure enough it worked which was good because it was to heavy and awkward to lift- we tried but failed.
We stayed in a cabin up near Bear Lake for a few days after Christmas. We had fun playing games and vegging. Mike pulled the kids behind his truck because there wasn't enough snow for a snowmobile. They had a blast. It was awesome watching from inside a warm vehicle.
Jaime even joined in and had a blast!!!
Happy 45th b-day Mike !!!!!
Long story short, Adam was sledding and he flew off his sled and into a tiny bush. His eye got poked pretty hard by a branch. We took him to the ER in Logan to make sure everything was ok. It's a miracle and he is fine. He was put on an oral antibiotic and antibiotic eye drops for a week. He has healed great. We did discover he has bad eye sight as he failed the eye examine in both eyes. It's nothing related to the accident. I guess he can't see the black board at school without squinting. News to me. Not the best way to find out. Ha Ha. It would have been much less painful if he had just told us. Ha Ha. And the crazy thing is that he doesn't seem to mind, because he says he won't wear glasses if we get them for him. Stubborn boy. All joking aside, I am so thankful he is really ok and I know prayers were answered and miracles happened.
He is bored to death from waiting. We were there like 2-3 hours.
Don't scroll down if you don't like blood. I included a picture of his eye. It's the last picture in this post.
Poor brave Adam
My New Year's resolution is to blog more frequently!!!
