All About Boy #1

I know he's only in Kindergarten but Jeffrey wanted to do Science Fair this year. Normally, I love science fair but I felt like it was too much for him. However, John stepped in and did the experiment with him. I helped with the poster. The project was "Who has the most air in their lungs". We measured lung capacity with a soda bottle, tube, and water. John, no surprise, won. Jeffrey was too scared to speak to the judge, but he got a medal anyways which he has been wearing to bed.

Jeff turned 6 last week, wow! He was super excited about his birthday. We opened some presents in the morning. We got him a new bike. Its a little too big and is hard for him to mount-but I'm hoping he grows before summer. (And just FYI, I got that bike for $30 from a black Friday sale-yea baby!) Later, we went to Chuck e Cheese. Jeffrey's buddy Nathan got to come along. Since we HATE the pizza there, we came home to eat and have cake.

John took Jeffrey to the rock climbing gym for "Dadurday". Its a new thing John has started with the boys. Right now Jeffrey and Sammy switch off, each Saturday John takes one of them for an outing. Jeffrey did well climbing. He got scared if he got too high but wants to do it again.

Random photos

Most of these are from John's i-phone. The first one I think was taken while I was at women's conference at BYU.

Trenton-6months. He started army crawling before Christmas. He is fast now! Man he loves to move-he's going to be a handful as a toddler. Its right around the corner!

I'm guessing he's about 4 months in this photo.

Sammy took a self portrait-look at those green eyes!


Pappy Earl, Grandma Janice, and Spencer were able to come to CO for Christmas this year. It was fun to have them and catch up.

Mornin' boys!

The grandparents helping to open all those darn toys-the manufacturers don't make it easy!

Sammy with the Swim to Me Puppy that Santa brought.

John and Spencer played with Sammy's new marble tracks most of the day.

Jeffrey and his Lego City Police Station-it took all day to build.

Patrick, John, Spencer, and I went skiing the day after Christmas. On our second run Spencer was practicing his stopping but took a bad fall instead, right on his shoulder. The ski patrol took him down to the clinic and X-Rays showed a bad clavicle break. I can't believe he is smiling in this picture, he's hurting, but he was a great patient. I didn't hear one moan.

Fall Soccer-'09

Jeffrey played soccer for the first time this fall. He had fun with his teammates and his coach was great. Jeffrey is learning to be more aggressive, most of the time on the field he'd be pretending to take pictures of the other team or barely attempting to kick the ball. He had at least one good play per game-so its progress!


Jeffrey, Trenton, Isabella and Sammy.
