My instagram activity has caused me to stop taking high quality pics and blog. But, summer is almost here and I want to get back in the habit.
Some of the fun we have been having:

Finally meeting Vivienne, who brought along Mylee, Mercer, and Elise to visit us through March. We had the most fun!

Being at the Temple for Ryan's and Vanessa's wedding was cold. That didn't stop us from having a great time.

Baseball is in full swing.
9yr old Damon's practice schedule: M-F 4:00-6:00
This was a little schocking to me. Also, Tournaments last through June 22, which means I am glad I procrastinated booking our family vacation. Very end of June it is.

New baby nephew and niece Lyrik and LaVillie. (Probably recognize these pics from my phone: further proof I need to take more photos.)

Christmas Fun!

It all began with lots of snow.

Reading and remembering the Christmas story is a favorite Christmas Eve Activity.

 However, it sometimes brings out the silly side. I think it is the pressure of being on stage. Even though by the end everyone is on stage and there is no audience. 

 I was really excited to get Damon and Tyler remote controll heliocopters. They both have wanted one for so long. Turns out they were both defective and the store was sold out. Tyler's has been replaced, but we are still waiting on Damon's. I'm hoping it arrives today so we can play with it before school starts.
 While visiting Temple Square, we also stopped at the City Creek Mall. Can't wait to go back.

While Ryan made friends with a man who wanted a sandwich and Diet Coke we played hockey with a chunk of ice. Then, back to the hotel for some late night swimming. We had so much fun.
