Image Galleries

A few hundred family pictures...

A few hundred family pictures...

Ok, our pictures aren't nearly as exciting as James & Heather, but what we lack in quality, we make up for in quantity.

Grandma, there are individual and family photos for you--pick your favorite. And, yes, Jeremy does put his shirt on. Click here for hours of fun. Click on the names along the top to see each gallery.

PS-For all the happy Mac people out there, I created the galleries using iWeb and then just published to a folder and then got it to Joe. Works great.

A ring!

Hey a ring! Look closely and see if you can see a reflection in it...you might have to click on the picture and view one of the larger images to see whose happy faces are reflected there...
Then take a look at these pictures!

Here is another picture that I took while I was fishing. It reminded me of Thistle Creek! Perhaps Grandpa could come up and take me, and whoever else, up to the creek. Ü

Camping!!!

Camping!!!

I've settled into Uncle Rich's home now and got access to the internet, thanks to Uncle Rich. I got to go on a camping trip with Uncle Rich, Chad and their 11-year-old scouts. It was very fun! After we got my license we started driving to the camp site. We almost hit a deer! We had tin-foil dinners and s'mores that night. I took this picture in the morning. We found a cool fort that someone else had made. We found some deer bones in there too! We went fishing at Payson Lakes, but didn't catch anything, except for a sock and some rock rollers. We still liked being there.


Pikachu!!!

Mike fixed my pikachu picture that I tried to post before. Enjoy!


Jello popcorn and family night...check out the video!

Jello popcorn and family night...check out the video!

OK, so this picture is not of the popcorn fun. It is of the temple builders, Jeremy and Adam. They kept running out to the "office" and dragging Dave and I in to see their progress. Before the day was done they had two temples and a nice fence around them both.

So, last night Becca was treats and Melinda was games. So they decided we would make jello popcorn balls for treats. We popped and cooked and stirred and then smeared the butter on the hands. Then before we got many balls made we just started eating. This is very sticky stuff. Check out these pictures which includes a movie of Daniel...too funny.

Visit with the family

Visit with the family

Matt & Chiaki and family all visited us here in Denver. We had lots of fun playing with them and visiting our favorite Italian restaurants and eating gelato, MMMMMMmmmmmm....This was a picture we took, Rufus was a good sport and let us sit on him. Thanks for visiting with us Matt, Chiaki, Anna, Erika, and Kent. Hopefully someday we can make it out to Japan.


Fun with Photo Booth

Fun with Photo Booth

Grandma and Grandpa were here and their old computer lost it's power supply so they decided to get a new one. It is gorgeous. It has a built in camera for video conferencing and you can use a program called photo booth to do weird things to your face. So we had a good time trying it out. Here are many more...uh...portraits!

Moon Pie!

Moon Pie!

Well, now that Fast Sunday is over, I would like to show you what I made for a birthday party on my other side of the family. I made Moon Pie. It was pretty good, not as good as when my mother makes it, but it was still good.
I am seeing a trend. I make (and post) all of my desserts and John makes (and posts) all of his great looking food. I'm thinking of getting together and having a feast. Maybe at Provo Canyon? We could play frisbee there and roast some marshmellows. John and I could provide the food, others can provide the fun. I don't know if you have time, but I think I would enjoy that. Think on it, while you read what is in this baby:
Moon Pie
In a heavy sauce pan stir together and cook on med. high until it thickens and forms into a ball:
1 C. water
1 cube margarine
1 C. flour
Cool for a few minutes, then beat in 4 eggs.
Spread on cookie sheet and cook at 425 for 20-25 min. until golden brown. Cool.
Topping 1: 8 oz. cream cheese (softened and whipped)
2 small instant vanilla pudding
4 C. milk
Topping 2: 1 large Cool Whip (16 oz.)
Drizzle Hershey's chocolate syrup over the whole thing (diagonally one way and then the other) and refrigerate.
Have a great week!

Adam finally gets to the beach!

We finally made it to the beach. Adam was pretty happy. Every week he would tell his primary teacher he was going to the beach that week...all summer long. Now he can say he did!

Here are some more pictures of the gang that made the one day 4am to midnight trip with us. It was fun we saw 6 movies enroute!
