Before & After

Before and After of Christmas
Christmas day we did a little different this year we did just stockings at 7am and then ate breakfast and went to Church for 1 1/2hours.  I loved every minute of Church it was a very spiritual day for me.  I couldn't help but feel so blessed. After Church we opened for about an hour! We call the 2nd picture Christmas puked all over the family room!

Christmas Eve with the Hirst's

We always do Christmas Eve with my family! I love having such awesome traditions yummy dinner, Grandma Great passes out her gift for us, we exchange cousin gifts, brother sister gifts, kids open pjs, and a new Christmas book. It always makes me feel like Christmas has begun! Ryan & I started our own family tradition of taking the kids to lunch and a movie on Christmas Eve.  It makes the whole day so much fun, we love it.

Samantha Graduated from elementary school!

Our baby graduated form elementary school. I am not going to lie this was a hard day. I had been dreading it for the whole school year. Junior high are you kidding me. It is a day full of mixed emotions, happy she did so well and loves to learn and is a good girl. Sad because she is making her own choices, you have to give her freedom and you can't just kiss all of her ouchies away. She has grown into a great young woman and we are so proud of her. She has made great friends and loves life and loves to laugh.
Her awesome friends! They are a cute bunch!

Right before graduation!

Jaxsyn's Swimming lessons

Jasxyn has been a little afraid of water, so we put her in semi-private swim lessons to help her overcome her fear!! She is doing amazing! She gets to take classes with her little friend Maelie!

Coleman's Tonsils

Coleman had his tonsils removed this week, he is such a great kid
and was so excited for the surgery.


This is what he has looked like for the entire week. He even looks worse now since he has lost a lot of weight his eyes are suken in and he looks so skinny. We are hoping he starts feeling better soon, we miss our happy boy!

Snowy Cabin Trip 2011!!

This was a really fun an memorable trip! We had to 4-wheel in to the driveway and hike the rest of the way 200 yards with all the bags & kids in 2 feet of snow! Once we got in we got to relax and enjoy the warm cabin! The kids had a great time and can't wait to go again!

Valentine's Day Family Home Evening!

We delivered yummy cupcakes to some of our friends in the neighborhood. I had ordered a dozen White Chocolate Raspberry cupcakes form one of my Young Women, and I forgot until after I had promised Ryan some Skor Cupcakes. So we ended up with bunches. They were yummy though!!

Fancy Nancy Party!

Jaxsyn's friend had a Fancy Nancy party, so she dressed up. She didn't want to wear a dress, but she looked like a teenager in her outfit! I love the fact that she had the sunglasses in her hair!!! I can't believe this is my baby, it makes me a little sad.

The Perfect Christmas Outfit Picture!!

This picture is a perfect example of how each child is in a picture.
Samantha- She has her eyes closed! We always have to take twice as many photos if she is in them. She can't help but blink or look away EVERYTIME we take her picture.
Jaxsyn- A poser (usually sassy) she always is ready to pose for a photo! And even has the head tilt down.
Coleman- He is always wishing that he didn't have to take pictures. And he is squinting, he has never liked it when it is bright.
Ashlynn- She has always been very photogenic, thankfully! She seems to know exactly how she looks her best! She has been like this since she was 2!

6th Grade Olympics!

Sam was on the white team! They have been learning about Greece so they had an Olympics. It was fun to watch them, they are so competitive now!

Coleman's Pinewood Derby!

As you can see he didn't have the fastest car around he was actually one of the lowest! But he ended up having fun and is already planning out his next car for next year!

Look how grown-up he looks!

Solider Hollow Sledding- Martin Luther King Weekend

This is the best sledding ever! You hook a tube to a lift and it pulls you up the hill and then you get to sled down 200 ft!! It was awesome and the kids loved it!! We went with my family since the cabin sledding trip had to be postponed since Jaxsyn had pneumonia (we didn't let her sled the whole time, it got too cold for her) and my dad also had a kidney stone. But it ended up a great day! It was so pretty up there!

The kids snow day!!

The mountain in the middle of the culdesac! The neighbor rented a tracter and made a big hill pile in the center for the kids to play on! They loved it and played on it for hours and hours!!

Snow day!!! It was so fun for the kids to have school canceled. I had watched it snow and snow and snow the night before. While I wrapped and wrapped, and wrapped Christmas presents. I woke up wondering if they would cancel school and even thought I am going to let my kids stay home and play for awhile before I send them to school. But then they canceled school!! Yay! It was a really fun day, I had hot chocolate going all day and during lunch I put their snow clothes in the drier so they could go back out again! Really fun day!
