Scanned Elder Silva Picts Show Up...

Scanned Elder Silva Picts Show Up...

So I have been given something rare--Elder Silva photos! All of a sudden there were several in my email. So it seemed like I should just put them online in case anyone, especially in Brazil, would like to see them. Don't know the story behind the individual pictures, maybe if anyone knows they can add comments.

You can see them all here.

We've moved, and you finally get to see a picture of our new house....just kidding, click here. We live across the street from this mansion. Hope you like the pictures.

Here are some portraits of Elizabeth's gang in front of Rusty's house.

Aren't they the cutest things ever?

FHE in November...let's go outside!

FHE in November...let's go outside!

Here are a few pictures from our "spring". All of us Arizonans are enjoying coming out of the house in the wonderful weather now. The windows are open and we want to "bundle-up" at night and at morning scripture reading.

This is a picture of one of our favorite fhe games. Dodgeball on the tramp. Here you can see Andrew throwing onto the trampoline. The little guy moving left is Adam. You and see Daniel on the left...twice. Josh is also on the tramp. You can also see Rebecca and Melinda moving.

We made a fire in our smoker and made s'mores for treats. We made a video of the closing song you can see in the pictures or here. Andrew shows off our favorite way...without the graham craker. Just put the chocolate in the toasted marshmellow, hold it for a bit so the chocolate melts, then pop it all in at once for some gooey goodness! Enjoy we did.

Here are some pictures of some of the Arizona folks at Halloween. There are also a couple of movie clips of Andrew competing in his rain gutter regatta!


Picture catchup

We haven't been too good about sharing pictures lately. So here is a dump of them. They include Adam's soccer pictures, Becca's ice skating birthday party, a praying mantis, and becca's regional swim meet. Here is a picture of her after swimming her personal best for the season 1.09.94. Way to go Becca! Here are the all the pictures.


Jordan's Band Concert

Jordan's Band Concert

This last Thursday, I was picked up and fed a very delicious dinner. Then I went with Aunt Marilee and Holly to watch Jordy play his Sax. I was really amazed at how well these 7th, 8th and 9th graders can play. I loved all of their songs. Several students did improv solos. They were awesome. Good job to Jordy!
The lighting in the auditorium was pretty bad, so this is the best picture I could come up with. Luckily, it was the one with him standing up and looking towards me!
I vote that Jordy does one of the next solos! Ü
Enjoy the picture!

Swimming, splint, soccer, suds and selebration!

Here are some pictures taken in the recent past. Including the amazing Prince Zuko cake made by Melinda for Becca's birthday. If you don't know who Prince Zuko is, then email or call Becca...she can fill you in. All I can say is the guy has some pretty serious facial scarring!

So I tried it again. I think I did pretty good, except it should be photos of wild horses, not pretty ponies. At least I didn't put 'pneumonia' on there Ü (Brian Regan). Enjoy!

Here's the link to the photos that I took while with Grandpa. Check them out!

Thanks to Dad for helping me get them up. I now know how to post multiple pictures! Hurray!

P.S. Doesn't this picture of the Kilns make the perfect Wallpaper or Desktop Picture?

I found these pictures buried on my computer desktop and realized I had forgot to post them for Grandpa, Mike, Chad and Elizabeth's gang.

So anyway, here they are.

We have been working on a new update to the promoterz web site and needed pictures of people talking to each other. So I gave Mike an assignment during his school break to get some. This is what he got. Too cool huh? Should work great on our blog "SeedsOfGrowth"!

Thanks Mike

Josh broke his little finger on his left hand. It seems to have affected more than his hand.


Why Parents of Young Children Never Seem to Get Enough Sleep!

Why Parents of Young Children Never Seem to Get Enough Sleep!

Couldn't resist taking this picture this morning. Just to get your bearings, Kristin is sleeping on the bed in the traditional direction. Still trying to figure out where I was sleeping...


Swimming Starts

Becca is loving swimming. She is with lots of ward friends and family! Here she is with Lauren. We have a few more pictures here that show not only swimming but Daniel getting his "Star" and some monsoon clouds and rainbows, and even a picture of lightening!

Awesome Arizona Monsoon Sky

Awesome Arizona Monsoon Sky

On September 4th just after dinner and before family night we all went out to see an amazing sky. There was a brilliant rainbow that at some points was fully revealed. But the clouds were awesome and some rain was coming in, combined with the setting sun it was cool. This picture is a composite of 5 images that were stitched together.

You can see most of our gang and others in the picture. I think we have (left to right): Joshua (across the street), Diana, Melinda (doing some airbending it appears!), Andrew, Adam (behind the pole), Jeremy, Rebecca, Bailey, McKay, Maddie, Hunter and Joshua (he crossed the street by the time this part of the picture was taken!). A few more minutes and Nate showed up...don't know where Daniel was..probably out of the picture.
