1st Day of School 2008-09
Taya and Beau are both at a new school this year. Beau was excited cuz his best friend Cayden goes to this school! Taya was not as excited because all her friends go to a different school, but they both got through the first day, with smiles! Taya said she made a lot of new fun friends, so many that she could only remember 1/2 their names. So I was glad, and they both love their teachers!

The Hoogle Zoo
I'm just posting pics of the kids, I figured if you've been to a zoo, you've seen the animals and they're always better in real life than in a pic.
K I found more pics from Christmas morning.
Creative with a Box
It has been a cold winter, so it's a challenge to keep the kids occupied inside, especially when they are off track for 3 weeks. So I got creative and made Beau & his buddy Cayden, Sponge Bob box outfits. It was quite a hit amd a hoot with two 6 year old Sponge Bobs running around the house. Thanks Mom for your toll paints! They came in pretty handy for this little project. And made two little boys quite happy for a few days!

Bryants' Hunt In New Foundland, Canada
In the first part of October Bry hunted woodland caribou & eastern canadian moose. And although he has a variety of caribou & moose, he still needed these two speices for his Big Game Grand Slam. He had a sucessful hunt and harvested both animals!
The Heber Creeper
It's September, falls here so we took the kids on a train ride to see the pretty fall colors in our Utah mountains. We had a good time.
