S: See What Mischief We Are Up To In 2010!
FC: 2010 A year full of blessings for our family.
1: These pages include a small collection of some of our favorite times through the year. Alex turns 4, Brit turns 3, we took a couple of family road trips and we are blessed in so many ways.
2: Thomas the Train was the main negotiating factor in giving up binkies this year. Two very happy little boys never asked for their binkies again!
3: What innocent faces! So cute in their matching shirts, Bryan won't let me dress them this way anymore.
4: My little cuties!
5: Alex loves technology, anything with buttons; Brit loves to socialize and entertain; together they love to wrestle, play board games and use their imaginations. This year has seen the last of diapers for us and the beginning of independence. While every parent brags on their child, our boys are sharp, speak well and love to tease and have fun!
7: Easter was a special time this year. The boys learned how to find all the little chocolate eggs and larger colored eggs the Easter Bunny hid throughout the house.. Watching their faces glow with new experiences and understanding continues to keep us in awe of the wonder of children.. We thank God everyday for the miracle of our two little boys.
8: One shy Alex, One monkey in Brit and one Daddy in love with his boys.
13: Alex graduated from his first year of Jr. Preschool. Although shy, he loves school and learns quickly!
14: Summer always includes a trip to Summit Prairie with the cattle and a quick ride after the work is done. Daddy remains our hero and every morning we wave him off to work!
16: JJ was a star attraction at the many rodeos we attended this year.
17: One of our road trips included Joseph, Boise and Reno - we just kept going and having fun!
18: More fun summer memories and the first day of school at Evergreen Academy!
19: We discovered escalators, water wings and our Idaho cousins, Brock and Tenny!
20: Carving pumpkins took on new meaning this year. We had to explore the internet to find the right face, help Mom and Dad dig the seeds out and light them up every night leading up to Halloween. This fall we also got to go to our first OSU football game with Mom and Dad. Benny the Beaver and the bright OSU orange are fast becoming favorites in our house!
21: Fun things to know about us this year: Favorite things for us include Transformers, Spiderman, Cars, puzzles, playing board games and hanging out with Dad at the ranch. Riding 4-wheelers, horses and tractors are still very cool. Petting and feeding baby calves and water buffalo are new experiences. Staying overnight with Grammy and Gumpy are highlights and getting to know our cousins has been super fun!
23: One of our family trips was to the beach - it was Brit's first trip to the ocean! While the weather was not always the best, we layered up and played in the sand anyway. The boys loved drawing faces and writing their names in the sand. We did attempt a sand castle, built large enough for Daddy and Bit to stand inside of the courtyard!
24: Christmas continues to be a special time for our family. Alex and Brit helped decorate the house this year. We put lots of lights inside and out and they love to make sure the house is lit as dusk descends. They have all the presents accounted for under the tree and ask everyday if they get to open one yet!
25: Merry Christmas! Every year the tree comes from somewhere on the ranch. Daddy's favorite Christmas tradition is to find the tree with his boys. Mommy's is to decorate with her boys.
