With all that said... I have sucked at the blog the last year. I have so much catching up to do that it completely overwhelms me. As a result, Im not... not going to catch up that is. Im going to take all the photos Ive missed posting (which aren't many cause Ive sucked at picture taking too) and Im going to throw them up on this here post. If you are lucky, you might get a brief explanation. If not, deal with it and just enjoy the viewing pleasure.
We went to the coolest park in Aurora (Illinois) We got to do free train rides, pony rides, hay rides, paddle boats... it was just a good time in general.
Tree climbing obsession. (notice how two of the three don't have shoes on?)
Remember how we moved back to Utah? The kids got to take turns riding in the moving truck. Pretty sure it was the best thing that ever happened to them.
As soon as we got to Utah, AnDee went right to works selling cornstalks in order to earn money for her club house.
We also went right to work helping Gayle harvest her garden and get her yard ready for winter.
Halloween... Im so proud of my little Christmas tree. Coolest Halloween costume ever.
Both AnDee and Pep have worked really hard to learn how to cross there eyes. Sadly I have no photographic evidence of Pep... Ill have to get on top of that.
We got to sneak up the canyon a few times before we got too much snow.
Our kids built this bridge. Not kidding. We gave them the supplies and they just went for it.
Uncle Jake got married. If you are lucky I might find some more pics of the wedding and post them later, but for now this is all you get. 3 generations and Ike is really happy about all the picture taking.
We had to say goodbye to an old friend. It was completely heartbreaking. I don't want to talk about it.
We brought in a new friend who has become Andrew's best bud. His name is Beefcake and he smells really bad.
We rocked the gingerbread house thing this year and made this wicked cool pretzel cabin.
I took a bunch of pics of Christmas morning and not a single one turned out. ALL of them were blurry. Im still mad. We did get a few pics of Uncle Caleb running the sleds behind the 4-wheeler. There is no question why Uncle Caleb is hands down the favorite Uncle. They spent HOURS out there while the rest of us lazy parents hid in the warm house.
We went to St. George for a few days and enjoyed being outside snow-free.
We have been practicing our old school type writer skills/boxing skills.
Lastly, Andrew and I went snow shoeing last week. It was seriously SO fun. Poor Bernie turned in to a snowball but she didn't seem to mind.
