Grandma & Grandpa Fun!

Here is Grandma and the kids getting ready
to head to Wahooz for the day.
The kids had such a great time riding the go-carts,
playing laser tag and doing a little golf.
Hailey scored hundreds of tickets on a game
to get everyone a few little gifts.

Cute Cousins

Andi Jane came over for the weekend with Grandma
and Grandpa. Claire was so excited to have them come to our house.
These two are the cutest little cousins, loving every minute together.
They enjoyed playing barbies, dress-up, Polly Pockets
and watching movies.

Happy Birthday Grant

Grant turned 7 today and we want him to know how much we love him.
We're so glad we have him in our family.
He does an amazing job with all these girls surrounding him.
It's finally my Birthday!
Grant enjoys:
Playing games on the PS2 like, 4-wheeler races, car racing,
band hero, snow maching jumping, Star Wars.
He likes to play basketball outside, riding his bike or scooter.
He comes home starving everyday after school and will eat until I stop him.
He gets up sometimes before 7:00 and wants to play the Play Station.
He walks everyday with his friend Max to school.
He doesn't like studying for his spelling words each week.
In the right mood, he loves to help me clean the house.
He loves to "jam" out to music with his Dad.

Happy Birthday Grant!!

A little bit of this and that...

What do you say about this picture? This is a great shot of Grant and how much fun he is. He is watching "Penny", Daris and Sara's sweet dog run after a ball he threw her.
Daris and Sara came over for the weekend for some fun. We are always lucky the weather has been great for an evening at the park. We enjoyed PF Changs one night for dinner. Daris was brave and let the Waitress surprise him with his entree. We also rented the "Time Travelers Wife" and Sara and I enjoyed some confusion and tears while the boys fell asleep.
This is my sweetie pie-- (coming up on 14 years). It just keeps getting better and better with so much fun and excitement everyday.
Claire wishing you all A Happy Valentines Day!

So Jared and I have been excited to try a few things. We have made rolls, Cinnamon rolls, pizza crust, monkey bread. Okay, so I should have said that we have been on a "kick" with breads. The pizza crust has become a new family meal, the kids eat it better than take out. And the rolls we still need to master so they are as good as Grandma's. But, loving and learning

Idaho City Sledding

We picked a Saturday to head up to Idaho City and do some sledding.
The snow wasn't great, but the kids still had fun.
We were lucky to come home without anyone hurt.
Grant and Max
We made a fire and we
cooked Chilli and some Hot Chocolate for lunch.
Grace was found relaxing and enjoying a KitKat after her lunch.

Trunk or Treat

Tonight we headed to the Church for the Trunk or Treat. Jared decided he needed a little more darkness to his costume. Last weekend at a friends party I dressed up as a Devil and he was an Angel. Tonight however, he was a Vampire. Sophia didn't know what she thought of her Dad all dressed up and scary.
Grace is a Naughty and Nice Fairy
Hailey choose the Army Diva tonight
Grant....what do you say to someone so cute. He was on the dark side that's all we know.
And Claire choose tonight to be Snow White. She kept wandering around following all the other Snow Whites she saw.
We had a Chili cook off and some Corn Bread. Then the kids went around Trick or Treating and filled their bags. I ran out of candy pretty quick, but we where still a "hot spot" with our propane heater to keep us warm.
Happy Halloween!!

Our life currently

I know I need to catch up a little bit from the summer but Fall has come and life is still moving forward. Grant signed up for Flag Football this fall and is on the Patriots Team. Jared is helping as a Coach. It has been so fun to watch him play. Jared wonders if the boys are even learning anything but I remind him that they are having a blast and that's all that matters.
Labor Day weekend we headed out to the Lake. The kids really enjoyed tubing this summer. This is sweet Hailey and Sophia.
Claire's fun milestone is starting Preschool. She wakes up everyday and wants to know if she goes to Preschool today. She loves packing her Princess backpack with her lunch and fruit snacks. She also begs me for a KitKat, which she calls a "Kittykat" that she can eat after her sandwich is gone. Her best friend is Wes and he is in her class.

Sophia & Corbin

This past weekend I went to McCall and had a scrapbook weekend. I was able to put a page together for Sophia and Corbin. I had so many fun pictures of them this past year. They were born only 10 days apart.

April in Review

Happy Easter!!
These are our little bunnies after their Easter Egg hunt. The bunny left lots and lots of eggs for them this year and had their very own private hunt in the back yard.
After the morning fun we headed out to a soccer game for Grant and Grace and then topped the evening off with shopping and a movie.
Grace turned 10 this month which means--(her parents are getting older). She has grown up so much and is such a big help to me around the house and with her brother and sisters.
She was on a competitive soccer team this year and really learned some great skills and a love for her team. She learned to play the violin and is still playing piano. Some of her passions are Converse shoes, drawing and her Ripstick.
Jared and I enjoyed a weekend away to Heber with some friends. It was a beautiful weekend with shopping, the boys golfed and lots of games. Some of our highlight were waking up early to the beautiful bird hitting our window and the crazy game around the pool table.
Thanks for the invite Tuellers!!
Elizabeth, Amy, Jen, Kim and Liz
I was reunited with some of the greatest ladies in the world. These sweet "chicks" are the ladies I spent my 2nd year at Ricks College with. We lived in the "Carriage House", #206. We spent time going to the new Rexburg Temple, making vinyl signs (thanks to Jenn) and talking, talking talking. It was so fun to see them, they look the same as they did __years ago.
It was one of those moments when you haven't seen each other for years and you just pick up right where you left off.
Love you like a hog loves slop!!

March Madness

Mr. "G" turns six!!!
He was excited to get a birthday party and take some friends
to Wahooz (formerly Boondocks) for some Lazer Tag and games.
They loved every minute of it.
Grandma Hathaway passed away and we attended the Funeral
in St. Anthony. She was special to Jared growing up, he spent
time living with her before his mission. He called her "Grams".
This month Hailey had some Clogging Competitions, one in Nampa and one in Pocatello. She did a great job placing 1st and 2nd in her dances which allows her to go to
Nationals at Lagoon in May
Grant and I went to Pocatello with Hailey to her Clogging Competition. Gaige, Grant and Clay were a big support in the stands. Grandma and Grandpa Howard, Daris, Sara, Danial and Lilly came to see her perform.

Grandpa Howard bought a KW for a new job he is pursuing. We couldn't wait to see the stripes he added and the new bunk beds inside. Thanks Grandpa for the tour.
