Looking at the Dereret Book I found some fun Christmas books that would be a fun family gift-
The Miricle of the Wooden Shoes by Deberah Pace Rolwley, A Christmas Dress for Ellen by Thomas S Monson & not Christmas but Reflections of Christ by Mark Mabry- I think these are the pictures Mom emailed us a while back???

Let us know what you would like to do for Christmas this year. 3 options:
Christmas night dinner and gift exchange, etc.
26th: Start at 1:00 (after temple shift) and do activities and supper together. I have the cultural hall reserved so we could spread out and play basketball, other things. I would like us to take an hour or so and do a project for the humanitarian center at D. I. It would be simple.
Sat. 27th: start mid morning and do some of the same things and lunch.

Ideas of things to do? Are there any fun new movies coming out around that time?
Meet in Hurricane and go 4-wheeling? Boating :o) ? HIking? Who knows what the weather will be like that weekend.
We need to think economically about what we do and focused to others.
Some one who knows how to put pictures on this blog willhave to do our wall...but it really does look good. Do each of you want to give us 60 or so diamond blocks for Christmas? Then we could take the brick planter out and ........

Dad enjoyed the hunt. He and Uncle David will be closing up the pavillion for the winter tomorrow. Today we are making pomegranate juice. Do any of you want some? How much?

Please respond ASAP about the holidays. Mom

New Wall

Hey mom...I think you need to post pics of the newly stuccoed wall for those of us that don't get down to St. George very often. We'd love to see how it turned out...Mel and Cinda said it looks good so we want to see it too. We will wait for the pics to be posted. Love you all...Jeff and Ari

Mom's birthday

Here are my pictures from Mom's birthday. I did a little photo-shopping on the picture with great-grandma so we had a good shot of everyone- I thought it turned out pretty good, if you look really closely you can see where things don't quite line up, but I think you really have to look.

We'll be here- Josh has a football game at Snow Cayon Highschool at 11:20. the games are 1 1/2 hours- he'd love to have fmaily come. I figured this would be the best game if mom and dad wanted to attend- the rest are at 1:00 in Hurriane or Pine View high. Otherwise we have no plans that weekend- it'd be great to see you guys!

Coming to Town

Jeff and I are planning to come down for a visit the weekend of Sept. 27th. Will most everyone be around? It's been way too long since we have been down, and really want to see everyone!

After Marin's baptism we went over to the clubhouse for some swimming and cousin bonding time. The pool was VERY cold, but the kids didn't seem to mind too much, although they did spend time in the jacuzzi.

Family Reunion

Here's some pictures I took at the reunion. Jeff and Ari, Dalton and Preston are in the background. This was at Terry Idol!
Preston likes to copy what Dalton does. Can you tell?
I thought this was a cute picture of Eric and his family.
Hey Blue Eyes!

We missed those who couldn't come. We had a good time. Cherry Hill was nice and relaxing. It was a good idea to have the reunion at the water park.

How was everyone's 4th of July?

How was everyone's 4th of July?

We had a really good 4th. The high was 75 so it wasn't to hot but that didn't stop the kids from having a water balloon fight and playing in kiddy pool. We went to Kirk's parents house and the neighborhood closed down the block. We had volleyball and bag mitten, sidewalk chalk and bubbles. Not to mention the food. Once it got dark it was time for Fireworks, in Portland there isn't really any big firework show, if you want to go to one you either have to drive about an hour or pay and then you are crowded with lots of people. So we have yet to go to one. Its ok because Dave and Diane's neighbors go across the river to Vancouver and buy about $1000.00 worth of illegal fireworks and we have our own little mini show. The had enough fireworks to last 2 hours. it was very fun and the kids got worn out. My wonderful mother in law bought the sparklers and my 3 kids had 72 sparklers to share. They got bored of them though.

I do miss the small town 4th of July festivities, I always remember Kanab being the best. I wish we could go to a community show sometime. Who knows maybe someday we will visit for the 4th, but until there we are making do with our big city 4th of July.

Let us know how your 4th went! As soon as i get pictures from our holiday i will post a new blog on my page but i wanted to start out mom and dad's first for everyone.
