Monster Trucks

Here are some photos from our annual Monster Truck outing. The course was stupid this year, so it wasn't as exciting as usual. The boys had a lot of fun. Vance is always playing with his trucks at home, and he knows almost all of the drivers from watching the races on television with his dad. Scarlet Bandit's driver was there driving a different truck (Iron Outlaw), and Vance recognized who she was. He spent most of the night asking where the Scarlet Bandit truck was.

A Visit from the Phillips

Rick and Eden came for a very quick visit a couple of Sundays ago. Caden and Vance were very excited to see their cousins. Vance kept introducing everyone to his "new cousin," Logan. We enjoyed visiting with them. Too bad there is so much distance between us, because I know the boys would have so much fun playing together. Lincoln has the sweetest little voice (I love listening to him count to ten). Logan was asleep most of the time, but we did manage to capture this really cute photo of him smiling. Our cousins, the Dumas's were there as well. It was a fun evening!

"Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam"

It's official- Vance is now a Sunbeam! At first, he didn't want to go to big primary, but he seemed to have a great time. Caden did his brotherly duty by walking Vance to primary and watching out for him. I love these boys so much!

Happy 2010! We wish you all a less-stressful year than last. I am finally getting around to posting some Christmas pictures. We had a great time hanging out with family and over-eating. Christmas Eve at Billy and Kim's house was so much fun for the boys and their cousins. Nolan is such a great helper, and Cole is so funny. I am so proud of my nephews- smart, sweet, and just a hint of mischievousness! On Christmas morning, after opening gifts from Santa at our home, we headed over to Tev's family's house. We opened gifts (as always, my mom-in-law spoiled me- Thank you for the Jim Shore collection and more!), ate constantly, put together a puzzle, and went to the movies. The boys saw "Avitar," and the ladies and my two little guys went to see "The Princess and the Frog". I really like the movie. I hope that whatever you ended up doing on Christmas brought you many great holiday memories!
