In Full Bloom!!

There is a lot of pretty trees and flowers that have been blooming the last couple of weeks, I took all of these pictures on the way to Kole's school.  Some of the flowers are wild and others planted.  I am so thankful for this beautiful world that our Father in Heaven created for us, and that we are able to enjoy it.

Each day after I take Kole to school, I park at the H.S., and run up and down these stairs 16 times.  
I started with 10 and slowly have added more.  
This is an awesome work out, 73 stairs up and 73 
stairs down.  It has been very convinenent, Stella is a 
sleep in the van.

Kole started piano

While Kris and I were taking our Sunday nap, Kali and Sarah decided that it was time for Kole to start learning how to play the piano.  When we woke up, he had a little piano recital.  He was so proud of himself, as we were also.

Stella is the main reason why I can't take the time to update my blog.  She got into some paints and decided to paint the counter and chairs, exactly the moment that I was updated my last blog.  She sure nows how things work, hmmmm... mom is on the computer.....gotta love her.  (See post below)

New things happening

So blogging is becoming to me like how I write in my journal.  When I look back on my journal entries it is always started by.... I haven't written for a long time (usually 1, 2, or 3 months), now that is how I am going to start this blog....Well, I haven't posted anything new for a long time, and I don't have an excuse.  My computer works, I have plenty of pictures, I just kind of avoid doing it ( just like writing in my journal) because I am so far behind.  (Now that I think about it this also applies to scrapbooking too.)  A lot of fun things have happened since I last wrote, Kali and Sarah got their ears pierced, again.  The first time when they were about 3 years younger, but their ears got infected.  Hopefully, this time they wont.  Kole learned how to tie his shoes, and Stella got a new pair of flip flops.  I got to go visit my family in Vegas, and meet my new nephews, Kade, Blake and Logan.  They are all so cute.  It was a quick, but fun trip.

Oregon Mythbuster, the sun does actually exist!

To all of you who thinks all it does in Oregon is rain,
I took these pictures from my front porch this morning.
This week has been absolutely beautiful, we love the sun.
This past Sunday we did have snow falling, though!
