Looked out the window to see someone killed our deer. When I got outside I was relieved to know the wind just blew it over.

We got BYU headgear. Dale and I swapped for the picture.

Christmas morning.

The girls got matching PJ's, Yay!!!!

I got a new lens for my camera!!!!

This was a truck we got Jacob for Christmas when he was 10 months old. When he unwrapped it that first Christmas, the kids asked if they could put him in it and push him and of course we said no. This was all caught on tape. We wrapped it up again and this time we let the kids push him in it.

Is it really December 21st?

It was such a beautiful day outside today. Jacob, Makenzie and her friend, Hope were outside playing and most of all playing in the leaves.

Trip to Austin

We were able to make a trip to Austin Saturday. We were able to see our High School football team play in the state semi final game( boo-hoo we lost) at UT Stadium and we were able to see family! We saw Dale's brother Dave and sister-in-law Lori, Dale's nephew Tyson and his wife Kristina and their daughters, Alissa and Hannah. Hannah was just born on December 8th. She was only 4lbs 13 oz. She was so tiny. Makenzie was only 4lbs and an inch shorter. It's hard remembering Makenzie so small. We all went out to eat at Pappasito's and had a great time visiting!! Jacob before the game.

Another layup in quadruple coverage

Taking a charge, but they called the foul on #45????
The girl plowing into Makenzie had played dirty all night long and never got a call until the end when she hauled off and hit one of our girls in the face, unfortunately our girl got mad and hit her back, but couldn't really blame her.

Good defense.....

and then she got the steal!!

Shooting a 3

Making a layup and getting fouled and....
