2: Island Park Cabin January 2011 | We spent a weekend at the cabin in Island Park, just our little family. The driveway hadn't been plowed but Yota (Jeff's truck) trudged through 3 feet of snow and we made it...barely, we were nearing the red zone on the RPMs. Brett kept saying "wow big snowing"
4: Dantzel eating food for the first time, she likes it!
5: Dang cold in Rexburg, we had to move the bed away from the window, sleep with three comforters, and long underwear. Brett loves playing with the tractors he got for Christmas. Love Dantzel's fuzzy hair that grows straight up!
7: Snowshoeing R Mountain. Brett had a great time in the backpack. They even crashed a few times and he never whined once. Near the end of the hike Brett whispered in Jeff's ear "go daddy, go go." They started off and raced to the parking lot. It was Jeff and Brett vs James, until James face planted in the snow. When we made it home and got out of the car Brett yelled, "yay, did it." He was so proud.

10: A visit from the Neeleys' February 2011
14: Jeff hid the bike in Brett's crib and we told Brett it was time to take a nap. He headed to his room saw the bike. He said "I found bike in da crib". He was all smiles and elated for many hours. He rode his bike all around the house all day. He kept saying "I found bike in crib" and then snicker like it was a funny joke.

17: Took a last minute job doing summer sales in southern California. We lived in Rancho Cucamonga, only one hour from the Neeleys.
18: Easter egg hunt at the apartment complex. Brett kept saying "I so esited". He picked up one egg and sat down on the ground to enjoy. We convinced him to go look for more eggs. He ended up getting only 3 eggs but he was happy as could be. Dantzel isn't crawling but managed to get a jellybean that was out of reach. Will crawl for food.
