Adam story...

I'm never very good at recording the cool little things that happen with my little kids...posting this should help.

So I was in my bedroom the other day putting on my shoes. I see Adam pass by the room enroute to his room. I say "Hey Adam! How are you doing?". He continues to walk by to his room saying nothing. A few moments later he comes back by this time with his blanket and pillow in tow and as he passes by my door he says "fine."



Glad to know he listens!

New pictures posted...

Mesa Thanksgiving 04 picts

I have posted the pictures from Joseph's camera and my camera of Thanksgiving in Mesa, 2004!



The cool thing is that there were several using the camera. I know there was at least Joseph, Rebecca, Mckay, and Andrew. So you get to see some pretty interesting angles and subjects. I think it gives a flavor of the activities and maybe a little hint of the fun chaos that was had by all!

Hi everyone!

Our new family photo...

Our new family photo...

We decided to try a new tricky family photo. Everyone got on the trampoline with their heads in the center and Uncle Rich climbed up to the treehouse and "shot us". Thanks Uncle Rich! One thing you can't see in the photo is that our heads are much lower than our feet...see that nice color in our faces?

Can't eat just one...

Madison and Adam are making sure the chips are OK before dinner. They are also making sure the table is wiped off sufficiently with their bottoms...aarrgh! But they are so cute.

Joy at the playground

Adam loves being at the playground. Here he is on Thanksgiving day. He was running around on the equipment and I asked him if I could take his picture. This is his "cheese". Just makes you feel good to see someone so happy.

Here is a picture of the newly fried turkey. From the faces it looks like they are pleased!

First Free Turkey Fry

First Free Turkey Fry

After talking about it for years, Dave finally did it. He got a Turkey Fryer. We had two turkeys, the frozen slow cooked over night and the deep fried variety. Here are the "men" that did it. By the way, it was delicious!


Turkey Bowling

Turkey Bowling

When we went to the park after the big turkey meal we saw a family having a great time "turkey bowling"! I wanted to record this so next time we can do it! They set up a plastic tarp and bowling pins. Then they roll the frozen turkey to knock over the pins. Too fun. (I guess they got the pins by just asking a local bowling lane and they were free!)

This is me swimming the backstroke at a swim meet in Idaho. My fastest time this year was a 1:04. I ended up taking 4th place at championships in the backstroke!

Back on October 3rd, Rebecca was surprised and WAY happy with Melinda's gift. She could now listen to her sister read a book to her...while her sister was gone! Note the flurry of excitement in the picture.
