The kids arose early this morning at around 6:30 to the gifts that Santa and Mom and Dad got them for Christmas. Makenzie and Emma got a Barbie Dollhose from Santa. Surprisingly Mom and Dad got them some Barbie's to go with it. Stephen got a train table with train set. He also got some trains that can be used with said train table.
This year was great.

We took a family vacation this summer to Colorado. During the time in Steamboat Springs, we got to see the Pro Rodeo that was in town. Here is a shot of the cowboys getting ready for the bull riding event. Of course this was the last event of the night, and it had gotten pretty cold by this point. We did tough it out, even though we were ill prepared.

This weekend we went up to Wyoming (Martins Cove) for the Freeman family reunion. We had a wonderful time learning more about the Pioneers, and understanding (ever so slightly) the hardships that they had to endure.
For those taht have not had this opportunity, please make arrangements to visit this hollowed ground. There is a special spirit there, that cannot really be explained.
We are eternally grateful for our family that decided to plan this for this years family reunion.

We had a good Mothers Day this year. Stephen made breakfast for the family. Since we did get an early start, we were able to get to church 30 minutes before the start of Sacrament meeting, which means that we actually got a bench. The kids did the normal during the meeting, but seemed to calm down more towards the end. Then it was on to teaching for our last time in Nursery. We will surely miss teaching the kids that we had, and the time that we got to spend together teaching. Not sure what we will be doing next though.

This evening I went to the Utah Jazz vs. the Sacramento Kings game. Our company has a suite where a bunch of us sat and had a great old time. What really made the evening special was the fact that three suites down from us (apparently it was Governor Huntsman's suite) was President Monson. From what I could tell, he was really enjoying the game. Due to the distance, I could not get a pic with my cell.

As you can see from the below pics, our kids have the tendency of sleeping wherever they are. It does not really matter to them, as long as they are tired.
Anyone notice the trend with the high chair, 2 kids same spot. I'm not convinced that the high chair is not the most perfect location to take a nap, but I'm not going to argue with them while they sleep.

Ame had a great idea to have the kids help to make pizza for dinner one night. The only downside is that we have not been able to get the kids out of the kitchen since.
It not only looked good, it tasted just like Ame made it (no offense Ame).

Tonight Ame is going out with the girls to get pampered. She has sent a few pics of the pedicure that she is getting, and is having a great time. If the pics would come off the BlackBerry properly, I would post them for all to see.

For those that have not yet had the opportunity, here is our family portrait for 2008. I know that 2009 has already been rung in, but I'm a little slow. We had this taken in Washington while we were visiting Ame's family for Thanksgiving. It was a really neat experience to have everyone home (that means all 9 siblings and families) for this holiday. We made plans to go early, and took off the entire week to make the trek to Basin City. Since we procrastinated (well it was more like timing wasn't right) we decided to do this the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. With the help of our great mother and sister in law, we were able to create this lasting memory.
