And here we have Clay discovering how fun the trampoline is. He trys to get on every chance he can get anyone to open the back door. What a crack up to watch him too. He loves bouncing around in circles
And then Robin joined the party, and had fun with the static in the hair! As you can see she kept rubbing Clay's head on the trampoline to make his hair stick up, but it did it to hers as well. Lots of laughing! No this is not abuse, she's not banging his head or anything, just having fun!
Everyone, have a good week, enjoy the holiday. Make this year different, spend time with your family. Read and tell stories each night together this week, or pick some service acts you can do together as a family. Finally, read about the Savior each night. Pick stories of him healing and teaching. Do all this as families, and involve others too. I think if we all do this, we will have a more meaningful Christmas this year. Make it different from last year, make is special. The economy is not good this year. Many are cutting back on presents. What a great opportunity to do it differently.
Here are some fun videos of family time!
Classic family fun. We miss everyone, and look forward to going to Cali for Christmas. It will be fun to be with our family and friends. Please keep us in your prayers, as I am trying to get a job that just opened up with a medical supply company. It would be really good for our family.
Have a good week.
Clay after we voted today...he had to have the sticker!
Rilee was on the swim team this year, and ended up swimming the longest race, the 500 free. It's 20 pool lengths, and she was 12th at regionals, and moved up to 10th after finals. Sadly, they only took the top 8 to state competition. Next year!
And of course we have soccer. Usually 5 games on Saturday. Today we just had 1. Cole played Thursday, the girls played Friday night and Jase didn't play today. Anyway here is Delaney taking charge of throwing the ball back in the game. Notice how they run after the ball no matter what position they play?
Here is Clay enjoying the game. This is a very rare shot of Clay sitting still. This never happens.
Jase went to Home Coming with Jessica and a bunch of friends. They all went in the van, went to dinner and then to the dance. They had a great time. Crazy that he is this old and doing these things. Check out the shoes on Jase. Grandpa Dave's old top siders, yes light blue, dark blue and white. Jase took them last time in California, thinks they are the coolest shoes in the world.
Last but not least, Clay has learned a new trick. Escaping from the crib. Here we go...The other night he woke up, got out and ran into the door of his room because it was dark. So now we make sure the door is wide open.
Just some of our events this last weekend. Always something going on. I know there is a lot going on in your lives too. Just remember to cherish the moments. It's hard sometimes since we are focused on income and diffenent things. Don't take advantage what we have in life. Have a good week.
I found this on the camera, and just had to share with you what we get on a daily basis around here. Never a dull moment. It's funny, one minute they are bugging each other and picking at each other, and the next they do things like this and look like they are best friends. Hope you enjoy.
And the oldest geek of the family was a cheerleader for the powder puff football game. I thought I had a better picture of him showing his socks and shorts, but you can get the idea what he looked like with the headband.
Here you go, our oldest in action. Wow what a great bunch of fun kids. We are so proud! I look forward to your comments.
And here he is again...
night with the Monsons. Then went to Manti, then on up to Provo. Went to the Provo Temple, then
the next day to Mt. Timpanogus, Jordan River, and Salt Lake City. Then on Saturday they went
to conference to the afternoon session. Then the boys went to Priesthood session. lots of fun and
320 baptisms. Grandpa Dave did all the baptisms and didn't complain. Actually he only complained
about the kids at night not going to bed, and having ice fights.
Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for a great trip!
