To the Moon!!!!

The kids started a new school today. They built a brand new school about half a mile from our house. It is called Endeavor Elementary named after the Space Shuttle Endeavor. Last week they had a grand opening event and had the commander from the space shuttle come and speak. This is a picture of Brigham and one of his friends with the astronaut in the background. Brig is on Student Council so had to help hand out stuff at the open house and got the spend the evening at the same table as the space man. The kids are pretty excited.

Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks!

Here are a few pics from a recent Bees Game with Grandpa. It was a blast. We had great seats right on the third base line and as you can see the Bee was a hit with the kids. Grandpa took us all to the game and provided a great dinner too.

Brigham is Awesome!


It's always the best surprise when you hear a lawn mower going and look outside to find this!! Especially when you did not even ask. Then to top it off when he is done he starts cleaning out the garage all by himself. Come to find out Clint had mentioned yesterday that maybe we should clean out the garage so we can park Jas and Nic's car in it while we try to sell it for them. What an awesome Kid!!! I LOVE HIM!!! And I just saw Alicia on the news from her school field trip today! She was the Attorney for Pig in a mock trial they did at the Davis county Court house. Great day and Great kids!

New Years!

We had two parties at our house on New Years Eve. Jas and Nik were down from Twin Falls and came over for our first new year (10:00pm, 12:00am in New York!). It was a lot of fun and we had lots of snacks. The kids had fun blowing their horns and doing poppers!

Then we had Tina, Gage, and Jack over. They arrived about 10:30. We had fun playing games, eating, and talking. At 12:00 we did more poppers and blew horns.

Our neighbors let off lots of fireworks. I tried to take a picture but it did not turn out so well!

Isaac's Birthday!

I can hardly believe Isaac turned 6 on December 29th. He is growing up way to fast. I love his hugs and cuddles!We had a fun time on his birthday.
We had a great breakfast made by Clint.Then he as able to take 2 of his friends, Will and Ethan, to Boondocks for some fun later!
We Love You Isaac!!!

Here is Isaac on his skateboard (this was his favorite present!)

Catchin up!

I've been awful at blogging lately so I thought I would start catching up. I hope to finish December today!
I thought I would start with Christmas! We have a tradition of opening up presents from Family on Christmas Eve. Each year the kids draw names and pick out a fun present for that person. Me and Clint always give them PJ's and a book. Then we are off the the Halverson's for Christmas Eve Dinner. It is always really fun to be with cousins!!

On Christmas morning we make them sing us a Christmas song to get us out of bed (a tradition Clint had growing up) and then we make them form a line from youngest to oldest to go down stairs (a tradition Lisa had growing up). They are way to spoiled and I think they all go what they asked for. This is how our house looks after they are done opening their presents!! Here are some fun videos of them opening their presents.

Amazing Sailer!

If you have looked at the blogs of our family (listed on the right-hand side bar) then you know that we recently went on an amazing family vacation. What a great time! I feel very blessed to have an extended family that we enjoy spending so much time with. We loved every minute of it. OK, not everyone loved every minute of the 17 foot waves, but everyone endured in style!

I wanted to share a few pictures of my favorite sailor. She is the most amazing wife, girlfriend, mother, dancer, sand-castle builder and cruiser I have ever met! I am one lucky man.









I also had to include this one picture of our family's top dancer. This kid knows how to party "Carnival" style!

Brigham's getting big!

I can hardly believe that Brigham is already 11. He has grown up way to fast and I'm to young to have a 11 year old!! We sure love him! He is the perfect child! He also received his Weeblos and Arrow of Light in scouts. This is a lot of work and we are very proud of him!
WE LOVE YOU!
HaPpY BiRtHdAy!!

November and December

We took our annual trip to see the lights at temple square. This year was the first year we have ever been the day after Thanksgiving. The weather was great because it was not too cold, but the crowds were a different story. It was hard to get around and you could not even think about stopping and taking a picture! It was really fun though. We took the train down, went to the Gateway and to temple square.

Joshy had a Christmas program at his school. He was so cute!

Jacob was in Basketball all November and December. He did a great job! He was the best on his team.


We took a trip up to Brighton right before Christmas. We were a little nervous to go because of what happened to us last year. If you want to know what happened just click HERE. Our only incident this year was that the main water line coming into the cabin had frozen so there was no running water. Our kids had fun melting snow to flush the toilets and wash hands with. I think Halversons' at Brighton Cabin don't have good plumbing experiences. I think it is safe to say that we would take the frozen water main over the Old Faithful toilet any day!
Everyone but Clint Josh and Izzy went Skiing or Snowboarding. Brig, and Jake took snowboarding lessons and I have say are excellent snowboarders! Alicia took Ski lessons and does really good. She is a speed demon! He teacher said she needed to work on learning to go slower. I think she knows how to go slow but just loves to go fast!
We had a great time up at Brighton and need to go more often! You can see more pictures of snowboarding and the cabin HERE on Karen and Brandon's blog, and HERE on my parents blog. I did not take my camera skiing so Karen and my Dad have all the pictures!
