Happy 7th Birthday Kylie!

Kylie turned 7 last Thursday! Time is going by faster and faster these days. We celebrated her birthday on Thursday with the family. It was unfortunate that some of the family had to miss. Kylie's papa Owens was in the hospital with a back injury so of course grammie was there too. She missed them there, but was happy to have the rest of the family with her. She chose to have cupcakes in place of a cake this year. The following Saturday we had a small party with a few of her girl friends from school. The girls came over and they got to make their own pizzas, eat cupcakes, and play like girls do. She had a good time on both days! I am so proud of what a good big girl she is turning into. She is such a great help around the house and with the little ones. We love you Kylie and hope your birthday was happy!

Tubing/Cardinals in the SuperBowl

So we don't have the snow here right now for tubing, but a couple weeks ago we did! Matt found the perfect run for the kids. It was a nice long hill with a very gradual downgrade. They loved it! Karissa especially, she never wanted to get off the tube! We have a slight chance of snow toward the end of this week, so maybe we will get to go play in the snow again! Anyway here are some of our pictures from the tubing!

Now then onto our AZ Cardinals!! I won't pretend to have been a fan because I really wasn't, but I'm still very excited to see them getting a shot at the title!! It's crazy they got this far. I really thought toward the end of yesterdays game things were about to turn around for them, but they held on and proved to belong! So Go CARDS!!!
CARDINALS!! Pictures, Images and Photos

Christmas 2008

Well we had a great Christmas. We got to spend it with our family which is most important. My sister came from California to visit and Jared and Kandra and Gavin came out from Ohio. We had a nice Christmas Eve dinner and program at the in laws which has become a nice tradition to look forward too. Christmas day we made the rounds from my parents to Matt's parents and back home again in time for a nap! You forget how much work is, especially toting four kids along! A week before Christmas we took the kids on our annual trip to the North Pole..ha ha yes I said the North Pole. We take them to the train depot in Williams for the Polar Express ride. I think I look forward to it more than the kids do! All in all, it was a great holiday. I have a lot more pictures than what the slide show is playing, but I'm having some difficulties as usual with this blog! I promise to learn it better one day!
