Basketball Season

The girls are playing basketball and they are both in heaven! They couldn't be more excited for practices and games. It's so fun!

They both work so hard and are great teammates. I'm proud of them for doing such a great job and look forward to more busy Saturdays.

Jenny's Braces

The day finally came for Jenny to get her braces off . . . It took 2 years and 3 months but she's finally done. Here are some fun pictures to remember the before and after . . . a little crazy! Where did my little girl go?The day she went in to get her braces on.

Top off the Night with a Jazz Game

After a basketball game, swim meet, sewing class, birthday party,
and last minute yard work before the snow . . .
. . . we left this little lady to make dinner
and we headed out with our tickets to the Jazz game

It feels good to be back in our seats . . .
one game down . . . 9 more to go!

Paintball Target Practice

Santa brought a box of 2000 paintballs and each of the kids a wrist rocket
this year for Christmas. So the day before the kids went back to school
we went out back for a little target practice.
. . . aiming at Osama Bin Laden, Zombies, huge elk
and our own family picture.
Bret was a good sport and added his backside to the targets for each of us to take one shot. Tyler hit him in the back, and then took off running for the frontyard yelling, "Sorry, Dad. Sorry, Dad". It was funny.

Shawn needed a little help shooting but ended up having a pretty good aim.
Jenny thought standing on a chair would help her in some way.
And everyone shot a couple over the top of the shed to Brother Blake's house.
It was a beautiful day to be outside and really fun to all be together.

Just a regular January day in Utah?

January 4th + 50 degrees + no snow = perfect day to take the dogs for a run

Family Pictures

It's one of those things you dread . . .
and it's a fight getting it done . . .
but it's always worth it in the end . . .
I love them, Mom! I'm glad we took the time!
I love you all!
