Here's the costumed crew

We really enjoyed the warm temps in the 60's, since last week it looked like this:

four little leaf monsters, by Emma

Here are the four leaf monsters. Will, Dallin, Abbie, and Emma.
Will is the brave one, he isn't afraid of anything.
 Dallin is the crazy one. he will do anything that involves being crazy.
 We are all jealous of Abbie because she had the best leaves and clothes.
 Emma is the one who is willing to do anything for her other 3 leaf monster friends.
but right now they are all sleeping. they will come out in the spring and walk out into the woods and then get back into their leaf piles for fall and winter. These are the four little leaf monsters.

Happy Birthday!

Emma turned 10 and Abigail turned 8.
We love our girls!


 Will turned 3 in June and if you ask him today how old he is he says "I'm turning 3 on my birthday".  Cute kid.


And our "Boy Genius" Dallin turned 5 and started preschool this Fall.
Isn't he handsome?

Borah Peak

Time for my semi-annual blog post...
I climbed Borah Peak with Steve, Drew, and Rod yesterday
At 12,662 feet, it is the highest peak in Idaho
 The final ascent, 800 foot scramble to the top, not much of a trail.
 Crossing the snow bridge
The view down the snow bridge
Great view from just above Chicken-out-ridge - 11,800 ft
 On the high saddle

Dangerous Diva #15

Abbie was drafted by the Dangerous Divas this season

Here she is in the starting line up in yesterday's game

There's #15 scoring her very first bucket as a Dangerous Diva

and hustling back on defense! (move over Jimmer)

Speaking of Jimmer, here's the kid that tells everyone that he wants to be Jimmer when he grows up. To tell you the truth, that sounds pretty good to me too, if I could only turn back the clock...and grow a few inches...and get some skills...

And the biggest fan of them all. Nearly every Sunday he notices the baskets during church and yells out for the whole congregation to hear "look Daddy, soccerball hoops!"

Happy New Year!

We had a very happy New Year's Eve filled with lots of fun, family, and food.

Cousin Kate doing some balloon-diving in preparation for the midnight dance-off.
Everyone shared their best moves on the dance floor and we had a full chorus from William on up: "Baby your a firework!"

Strut your stuff in 2012!
Best wishes for the New Year!
