Marion Bear

And this post is just because little Marion is so cute… she loves to steal everyone’s shoes and wear them around the house. Amazingly enough she can actually walk in all the shoes, even Chris’. Her favorites now are Oliver’s though, because she has figured out that she can get them on and they are…

Zion Field Trip #2

Just so everyone knows, we broke our small camera. It still takes pictures, but the screen is broken, so all of these pictures were taken by holding out my camera, and hoping I have really good aim… We had a BEAUTIFUL day in January, so we headed back to Zion for a more proper long…

Happy New Year!

On New Year’s Eve, Chris told the kids they could stay up as late as they wanted. We also let them watch a movie, and randomly enough, they chose to watch the Les Miserables 25th anniversary concert. Oliver LOVES it and has been telling Elora all about it, so she wanted to see it too….

Zion Field Trip

Elora has full day kindergarten, but sometimes I pick her up early and we go fun places together. I wanted to take her to the museum in Zion National Park last month. We drove all the way there and it turns out that they close it for winter. I am not sure why… but we…

And the best Christmas present was…

Our friends Dave and Kari came over with a gift for our kids – an awesome rocking horse that our friend Dave made. I have always wanted to get a rocking horse for our kids, and the one he made is BEAUTIFUL! And our kids adore it. This was definately the nicest gift our kids…

Christmas

And finally we are posting Christmas pics! Let me start by saying we had tons of cute pictures, and apparently opening presents is the best way to make our kids look adorable, because they had cute smiles the whole time. It was so hard just to pick a few pictures to put up, but I…

Christmas Eve

O n Christmas Eve we invited over some neighbors, and made our favorite Nepali food – momo. It was wonderful to spend time with some of our favorite folks in town. The kids loved having Burdell, Verla, and Ila Mae over – especially since our families are far away and we did not get to…

Church Christmas Party

We got to make cookies for our church Christmas party. I found an awesome recipe for homemade oreos awhile ago, but instead of making them into oreos, we just threw in a bunch of chocolate chips. SO AMAZING. Oliver the shepherd helped. His latest accessory to the shepherd costume is his lightsaber. Because of course…

December Playtime

I can’t believe it is already January! December flew by, and we had a lot of fun with preparing for Christmas, and enjoying the tiny bit of snow we got at the beginning of the month. Here is Oliver chopping some wood with his toy ax. He is trying to help out and be like…
