Oldies but goodies!

Here are some pictures I found that were taken back in December but I thought they were so cute that I would share them now.

March was a whirlwind

Rodney and I celebrated our 13th anniversary on the 25rd of March. We happened to be at the temple just a few days before and decided we should try to recreate one of our wedding pictures. Boy have I aged in the last 13. I know I can blame it on the 4 kids but that doesn't seem to make me feel any better. I was fortunate to marry one of the most wonderful men in the world who tells me on a daily basis how beautiful I am so I wasn't quiet aware of my aging until I saw this picture. I am very grateful for the last 13 years and can not express with words how wonderful Rodney is to me. I can name a million things that have changed in the last 13 years but the one thing that has not changes is my love for this wonderful man and the 100 % assurance that he was made just for me.
We spent spring break in Utah. Thanks to the fact that my camera was on the fritz I did not get a lot of pictures. But we were able to spend some time with Rodney's parents. I hung out with my sister Nicolle and spent a whole hour in Joanne's Fabric without any children (it was heaven), We spent some time at my parents and celebrated Samuel's 5th birthday (Thanks grandma and grandpa). And last but not least we attended Travis' wedding. All in all it was relaxing and nice.
Here is a picture of Travis, Hope, Bill and Skelly at the Salt Lake Temple. It was so great seeing Travis so happy. What a wonderful day.

Foxy Visitor

We have lived in Cascade for over 5 years now and we see foxes all the time. They are always crossing the street or running across the grass at the church. Jack got about 3 feet away from one once. He was trying to feed it jelly beans. We have also seen baby foxes in a culvert by our house, but this is the first time I have got a picture of one. It was running through our yard and I just happened to have the camera out and got it just in time.

Winter Carnival

We made our annual trip to the McCall winter carnival. It was a beautiful day and the kids enjoyed all of the ice sculptures.
This was my favorite sculpture. I guess I still have a thing for frogs even though I already kissed mine and he turned into a prince.

Skating Family Home Evening

We had a fun Family Home Evening ice skating activity at a pond in town. We had pizza, hot chocolate, skating, sledding, a warm fire and a lot of laughs
Will would not put his pizza down so he could go sledding.
The pizza was great.

Jack Playing Basketball

video

Jack played basketball again this year. He loves it and improved his playing over last year. He was a lot more aggressive and a lot better at handling the ball. He average 6 points a game and had a great time. This video has some high lights of his game against New Meadows. He is the kid in the cream colored shorts. The highlights are of his 3 baskets he made in that game and two great assists. Also a little example of his ball handling. I got rid of the voice on the video because I am a loud fan/parent and it makes Jack upset that I kept telling him to hustle and move his feet.

Jack as Walt Disney

video

Jack's class did a living wax museum. They had to read a biography about someone and then be that person in the wax museum. Jack choose Walt Disney. He did a great job and his teacher complimented his acting abilities.
