tHe SiMpLe JoYs Of cHiLdHoOd

Dancing together

Having a friend to sit next to on the couch.

Watching the water

Sitting on a bench

Picking up rocks and sticks

Riding side by side in the truck

Reading with ladybug glasses

Frosting sugar cookies!!
And just licking the frosting off!

messy faces

Being pulled by Auntie Kirby on the blanket,
across the floor.

bUg- A -bOo

Bella loves to pose for the camera.

It has pretty much just been me and bug for 3 weeks!
Jason has been on business in Texas, Washington, and New Hampshire.
We have been together 24/7. By the end of the first week I had a breakdown.
Jason was suppose to come home for the weekend but he didn't. So the next week
me and Bella took our new wheels for a ride to St. George. It was such a great ride!
Bella was almost a perfect angel. We had a lot of fun with Kirby and Keir.

hApPy BiRtHdAy MoM!!

The birthday girl with her hubby who look like a cherry
because he is doing something like a chemical peel gone way wrong!
(This picture scares me a little 'duh, anyone there?')

Me and 'bug'

Jeff you look like you are in pain!

Half of the Gang- minus Seth, Prego Emmy
Bailey, Brock, Codi, and Jason.

The Brown Paper Bag

I figured we needed to do an art project with the brown paper bags collecting under the sink.
Bella colored it, I cut holes for her head and arms, and she felt like a superhero.

Rose Bowl Parade

All of the floats are made out of flowers, dry beans, and fruit.

Behind us is the Honda Robot.
It was so tall!

Derrick and Lisa
(minus 2 kids)

This was my very favorite float!
(minus my expression in this picture)

The elephant was made out of a moss,
similar to dryer lint

This float was so peaceful!
It was absolutely breathtaking!
It was all done by volunteers.

How cute are these!

Heading back to the parking garage.

I love this quote by Margaret D. Nadauld-

"Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude, we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity."

Surf Day

Jason and Derrick where going surfing so Lisa and I brought the kids along to play in the sand.
When we left it was sunny and warm, 5 mins later, when we got to the beach it was cold and foggy! We bundled the kids up with what we had and endured the cold!
Jason heading out for the 2nd time that day.
Earlier he went out in just his trunks!
When he got out of the water people where saying"Finally!"
They couldn't believe that he lasted as long as he did.

The cold NEVER stops Bella and Landon!

Jason in a wetsuit this time-looking sooo hot!
When he came out of the water he said "Who needs Sea World to swim with dolphins!"
There where dolphins swimming right by him.

NeW YeArS eVe

We started the night right by eating yummy food at the Cheesecake Factory!
Bella is looking a little frazzled!

After dinner we walk around The Spectrum.

Here is the everyone!
Bella and Landon had a blast playing with Zach's toys well he was asleep.

Jason, Derrick and Aaron playing Mario Cart.

Jason and I headed home around 10 and went to sleep-
I don't think that we have ever made it to midnight.


This clip will only be funny to 4 people-Me, Jason, Lisa and Derrick!
