Wow... Did you see that?  Months just went by and someone went missing! Here is our life in a nutshell~

  • Hyrum celebrated his 8th Birthday and had a wonderful baptism!!!
  • The kids did a great job with their School Christmas Program (The Sound of Christmas)
  • Christmas was amazing being home and being our little family.
  • We took a trip to White Sulphur Springs right before the New Year and enjoyed time with family.
  • New Year's Eve was spent with friends in Conrad again.  Fun Times!
  • We had a batch of puppies (4) which we kept one and gave 3 away.
  • Reed Celebrated his 6th birthday (moment of silence for the sad mom and dad).
  • We went skiing on a school trip (which was another first for our family to do together).
  • Mike has been knocking out some honey do's and building in the boys room.

Mike still wakes up everyday loving his job, which means the world to us.  Our family (extended and close) have had changes in their life and it has made us take a step back and look at the BIG picture.  It is interesting where life will take you and what challenges are put in your way to help you grow.  I am thankful for such great friends and family who believe in us, give us encouragement, and show us faith by example.

Glad to see you back in action you lead such a busy life. So are we going to hear some great calving stories coming out of the fields this year?
