1: 2010 A YEAR TO REMEMBER
2: On January 12, we loaded up the van and headed off to Disneyland. We went as far as Las Vegas the first day, spending the night at a casino in Mesquite, Nevada. We got up early the next morning and made a quick visit to Hoover Dam in Henderson, Nevada. We toured the dam, and then headed off on the next leg of our trip, ending up at Disneyland. After eating dinner, we walked over to Down Town Disney and did a little exploring before calling it a day. | FAMILY VACATION
3: We spent three days at Disneyland. Some of our favorite rides included the Tower of Terror, Soaring Over California, Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, and the Matterhorn. The girls enjoyed being pampered at the Radio Disney store, and we all enjoyed highlights such as the Disney Parades and the Fireworks show. We also had a lot of fun trying to track down all of the Disney characters.
4: After spending 3 days at Disneyland, we headed off to Sea World. We saw the Shamu Show, as well as a dolphin show, but after Disneyland., Sea World was a bit of a disappointment. It's just hard to beat the happiest place on Earth.!
5: Our final day in California was spent at Huntington Beach. The kids had never seen the ocean before, and they loved it! | In fact, they loved it so much that we decided our next trip to California needs to be a beach-only-trip!
6: VALENTINE'S DAY Making Sugar Cookies
7: She's a TEENAGER! Kaysha turned 13 on March 4. It's hard to believe that we are old enough to have a teenage daughter. Wasn't it only yesterday that Mom and Dad were this age and excited to be entering the teenage years? On hand to help celebrate her birthday were BFF McKelle Ellertson and siblings Cole, Kaleigh, and Kinsley. Of course Mom and Dad were there too!
8: SPRING SOCCER This was Kinsley's first year playing soccer. It was especially fun for her because her Dad volunteered to be her coach. There were five girls on her team and they had a lot of fun learning the basic skills of soccer, even though the weather was pretty cold for most of the season. BRRRR!!!!!
9: Kaleigh's season started out a little rough. The first team that she was assigned to was made up of girls that she didn't know. This was not much fun for her, so Mom called and had her moved to a team that had a few girls on it that Kaleigh knew. This made the season much more enjoyable for her. Go Kaleigh!
10: Kinsley is 6! For her birthday dinner, Kinsley wanted steak and fried potatoes. Her birthday guests included Aunt Emily, cousins Landon, McKay, and Lindsey, and siblings Cole, Kaysha, and Kaleigh. Her special request for birthday cake was strawberry shortcake.
11: Birthday Girl! | It's great to be 8!
12: so many | Kaleigh Age 8

16: Kaleigh chose to be baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when she turned 8. We are so proud of her and the right choices she has made in her life. She is such a great example to all of us.

20: A New Family Member Brett found this pigeon, injured and unable to fly, near his work. He brought him home and we put him in the top of the bunny cage. After feeding and caring for him for a few days, we decided to set him free. Fortunately for us, he decided that this was his new home. He stayed with us for almost a year, but disappeared in the early spring of the 2011.

32: This year at Girl's Camp we got the priviledge of having the Brigham City Peach Queen Lisa Lundberg (a former member of our ward) come and talk to us. She was so uplifting and she brought us all Burger King crowns because we are all daughters of a King. | All of the parents got to come and watch our skit night. Kaysha's group did a skit all about "Finding Nemo". Kaysha got appointed to be the octopus who always "Inks".
