It was a quiet Thanksgiving for Niel and I. The boys were with their dad in Idaho. We celebrated the best we know how.... with family.

We had dinner with the Jaramillo Family, including Grandma and Grandpa Dean too.

Lots and lots of fun to be had and plenty of good food to eat too!

Awesome Coaches

Football is over but end of year parties are the final way to end the year. We have so much fun celebrating a wonderful year.

I forgot my camera the night Gar had his team party. Below is is awesome team!!!

Zander loves Coach Edwards. Me too! I don't know how anyone has so much patience for a little team like they had. It was great to spend another year with him as Zander's coach! Zander won the "Hit Man" award. He definitely had a great year!

Coach Templeton and Coach Hancock are were fantastic as usual. Stocks is lucky to have them. We celebrated at Shakey's and had a ton of fun!

This was Conner's last year with the Livingston brothers as his coaches. Conner has played every year with these good men. He has learned so much and we appreciate all their dedication.

And I just had to add this picture. This is me and Conner and our difference in height. Yeah.... I am sad my little boy is turning into a tall, young man.

Christmas Tree

We decided to put up our tree very early this year. Even before Thanksgiving.

I say.... bring in the Christmas spirit early.... why not?

Terrible Sickness

I really should have taken a picture of all the sick-ies in our house the past week. Yeah... it last an entire week. Stocks got it first, but it only lasted about 3 days for him. Conner, Garrett, and Zander all ended up missing an entire week of school. It was terrible. They had fevers, chills, headaches, body aches, and yucky noses. They were so sick, they couldn't even play video games... that is seriously how ill they were. I missed a couple days of work to take care of them, Niel took a day off too. We even called Grandpa Dean who came over one day to help us out. Thankfully, Grandpa didn't get sick and the sickness past.... but WOW! Never seen anything that bad and hope we never do again!

A Little Update

School keeps us plenty busy. Here is what we have been up to...

Conner did his science project nearly all by himself this year. He made a motor and tested magnetic pull. He did a great job!! He received 98% on his project.
Way to go Conner!

Stocky worked long and hard on a model based from a book. Stocks did fabulous and received 100% on the project!
Yeah Stockton!

Gar had to make an Anasazi Indian replica out of natural resources. He used clay, grass, sticks, and rocks to put together his creation. He receive 100% on the project.
Awesome work Gar!

Zander hasn't had any real big project yet this year (thank goodness). Instead, he has been keeping Niel company at BYU basketball games. Don't they look so great in their BYU get-up? Zander's favorite player is Noah Hartsock.

I wish I were doing something a little more fun. Check out this awesome picture. Ok, so don't look at the terrible hair do... my eye is the problem. I ended up with a terrible eye infection that required a trip to the InstaCare. NOT FUN!
I have had better looking days.
