Fun in the Snow

One morning in January(yes I am trying to catch up!) after going to the chiropractor, we headed out to Tyson's moms house to play in the snow. Grandpa Blaine had hooked up a car hood to the back of Kierstans truck and everyone was having rides on it! I couldn't go out to play because I just went to the chiropractor and sailing through the air on a hood didn't seem to be the best recovery plan!
I did have fun watching through the window as the kids took there nice little rides around the field. I almost peed my pants when I looked out the window and saw Tyson, Branson or Clayson whipping around the field so fast the sled hardly touched the ground and when they flew off, it involved several cartwheels!! My heart stops just thinking about it!!!
Tyson and his brothers had fun making more home movies. The topic this time was extreme sports, all the guys had Arnold Schwarzenegger accents. The game was to see who got the most points for staying on the sled the longest, how rough the ride was, and how many times the sled hydroplaned!!! I had to remind Tyson how expensive broken bones are!!!
In all it was a great day, I love to see Tyson have so much fun with his siblings and Isaac!!
Now I am ready for spring!!!

Christmas morning was so much fun. It makes such a difference when the kids know whats going on!! Isaac was thrilled with everything and wanted to open all the presents. Ethan wanted to just open one thing at a time and play with it right away!

Our friend form Japan Kiyoko Fujisawa, sent Isaac and Ethan presents for their birthdays, we thought they were for Christmas!! She is such a sweet lady, Isaac and Ethan loved having her family come visit last year! Thank you Kiyoko!

My moms house was next, with more fun present opening and a wonderful breakfast. Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Munson!!
We than went to Tyson's moms for games and lunch. It was fun to see everyone! I am so sad we didn't get any pictures. I started to come down with a could at this point, and wasn't thinking clearly. Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Hatch!

Last on our list was my Dads and Laurie's it was a great place to rest from the day of running. We had fun exchanging gifts, I gave Heather and Allen pajama pants that were "HUGE" I still need to get them back to fix them!! Sorry!!!
We had dinner and Grandpa made some of his wonderful treats!!
Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Berg!!!

More December Fun!

We Had a fun family night setting up our Christmas Tree and decorating our house! Daddy wanted to put poinsettias and lights up on the shelf in the living room. Isaac helped and Ethan got to take a picture. It was scary for Mommy!

The finished product! This was Christmas Eve night.

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to meet my moms biological father. His name is Don and his sweet wife is Patty, they came up from California to visit before Christmas. It was fun to get to know them better, and learn more about our family genealogy. It was also surreal to look at Don and see family resemblance. We had such a nice time and the kids had fun with a new "Grandpa" and "Grandma" I hope they come again!!
I love that my family is so large, Isaac and Ethan get to love so many people and so many people love them. I also love that they have learned to be so accepting, of people and love everyone!

December Fun!

Isaac and Ethan's Birthday Party at my moms house. Isac was so excited to get this Geo Trax, he found it in an ad and told us everyday how much he wanted it! Thanks Grandma!

At the ward Christmas Party with some friends!!

My family cuts down Christmas Trees in Joseph every year. My brother-in-laws parents live down there and let us come see them. They are such sweet people!

We went out with my mom, step-dad Jim and brother Allen.
Mom took maters into her own hands and cut down my tree. It took to long for the guys to get there with the chain saw.

Hunting Season

We were blessed this hunting season, Tyson got a nice deer and elk.
The pictures of the deer were after the deer hunt, they were beautiful. Isaac and Riley were so excited to be hunting. When we saw the deer they would jump up and down and shout "there's the deer get them!!" I don't know how I feel about this, I hope my child doesn't have to go to counseling later in life! I do respect the lessons Tyson learned growing up around hunting and guns, I hope my son's will learn the same lessons!
