Well this is what we have been up to for the past five or so months. :)
We had a great Christmas filled with good memories and the flu that lasted for two and half weeks and affected everyone in the family, but it waited two more weeks to get me. The only outing we were able to do so that we didn't get others infected was do a polar van express where we piled in the car with our jammies, hot cocoa, popcorn and candy canes while listening to Christmas carols and looking at all the Christmas lights. The boys loved it!
Ellie learned how to accessorize using all the latest fashion tips ( wearing brother's underwear and pajamas ) and feeling so proud.

Reid turned 8 January 19th and was baptized and comfirmed by his father as a member of the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints on the 26th! What a wonderful day filled with the spirit and wonderful memories.
What made this day even better is that Steve's parents came from Oregon to help us celebrate this great day.
Wyatt turned 4 and we went go-carting and had ice cream cake with oreo cookies and gummy worms. His favorite present was a playmobile dump truck. He loves dump trucks and every time ours comes down the street he runs outside to greet it and watch with fascination. he reminds me of Steve so much. I sure love that boy!
Our garden produced an abundance of carrots, peas, lettuce, tomatoes, a few broccoli and I'm pretty sure none of it was toxic, but Lincoln looks like he needs to be on the cautious side when holding peas in his hand. :)
Lincoln lost his first tooth and was over the moon with excitement. he thought the day would never come. And to his delight the tooth fairy found our house and left him some gum and 2 dollars. :)
Reid and Lincoln were both selected to be bodacious bobcats for the month of February. It is similar to being student of the month. Way to go boys!
Reid became the first of our many cub scouts to come and loves it! The had their pine wood derby and he and Steve worked on their reeses peanut butter cup car. Steve loved it even more then Reid. It was fun to watch them work together.
Here is Reid receiving his bobcat badge and becoming a wolf.
Snuggles and loves with dad. I wish this picture wasn't blurry or I would frame it.
