Enjoying our Snow Day

Yesterday we had a pleasant surprise, it snowed on and off all day.  Since they canceled school today we rolled out of bed, got bundled up and sled down the hill in front of our house, and built a couple snowmen.  We are glad they canceled school because we were up late celebrating Stella's birthday.

Happy Birthday Stella!!!!!!

I just wanted to share with everyone some of my favorites of Stella (okay a lot!)  She has been so much fun and such a great little girl.  She is always making us laugh and smile.  She love to make messes, the bigger the better, she loves to play with her older brother and sisters, and wants to be included in everything.  Her favorite food is candy, or anything sweet.  She is very kind hearted and always gives hugs to those who are sad or hurt.  We are greatful she is part of our family.  We love you Stella

A hard's day work!

We have been lucky this past week, we've had beautiful weather, no rain and a full moon.  Kris was able to get a lot of yard work done, which was way overdue.  It was a nice day and we accomplished much.  Thank you Martin Luther King Jr.

Our football field is mowed!!!

The deck in front of our house was getting overtaken by weeds, so Kris crawled underneath and pulled them out.

A Day at the Dentist

Yesterday we went to the dentist, boy was that fun!  When we left Las Vegas and moved to Coos Bay, I knew we were moving to Redneck country, so I thought we needed to fit in, so I told my kids that they didn't have to brush their teeth anymore.  They really liked that idea, I thought we were doing a good job of fitting in, and I figured our dentist would be thouroughly happy about it, but boy did I get a scolding.  They told me the weren't sure they would be able to save Sarah's teeth, man I thought she looked pretty good, Heather what do you think?  You are a dental hygenist, can her teeth be saved?  They aren't too bad!  (Acutally, poor Kole, he inhereted Bevell teeth, we last had our teeth cleaned in August, and he had no cavities, but since we moved here he now has 4.)

Banana Bread anyone?

I really love our girls school, because during the day they get snacks.  Well, this was a surprise for me when I was looking in Sarah's bag.  Yum, yum!!  She decided to brings this banana home with her because she didn't get to eat it.  With Sarah this happens quite often, the other day I found 3 soft cheese sticks.  I actually needed one more banana to make some banana bread, I think this one I found will do.

Wet, Wet, Wet, Wet......

I have been trying to get into shape, so everyday after school I run up and down our hill, about 6 times.  The last couple of days I have been lucky because it has only been drizzling, or no rain at all.  Well today it started pouring when the kids got home from school, so I was talking to our neighbor, mentioning that  I was waiting for it to ease up, and he said, well in about June it stops.  So, as you can tell by the pictures I am not going to wait until June.  It actually was quite fun running in the rain.

This was Kole's first wrestling tournament.  He did awesome, pinned all of his kids, and took home a first place medal.  He is done with wrestling now.  He had a good season, but he is looking forward to the spring when he can play baseball along with Sarah and Kali.

Ice Skating

Christmas 2007

Yeah, I finally was able to set down and figure this whole blog world out, well enough to start posted pictures, and such.  I am so excited, because I thoroughly enjoy looking at everyone elses, so I hope you enjoy ours.  For Christmas we were able to go over to Kris' parents house.  They just moved into a beautiful new home.  While we were there we were spoiled, we went ice skating, sledding, and even Santa visited us on Dec. 26 (we were waiting for family).  Sarah said that Santa was able to come and visit because he wasn't busy anymore.  Anyway enjoy.
