Sooo relaxed

Logan likes to put Jaidyn on his shoulders and carry her around. She kind of melts into him and gets really relaxed. Right after I took this pic. I got her down because she was almost falling asleep.

Carmel Cookie Pops

A little boy in the Primary class I teach had a birthday this week. I made these fun treats so we could celebrate! They are yummy (I had to try one to make sure) To make them to take 2 vanilla wafers 1 carmel and 1 sucker stick- put the carmel on a plate and microwave for about 9 seconds- just until it is soft- stick it on the vanilla wafer- put in the sucker stick- put on the other vanilla wafer and smash it together- then dip in melted chocolate.

Homemade Carmel Syrup

This is a recipe I got from my sister-in-law. It is fabulous!!! It goes great on anything- pancakes, french toast, german pancakes, homemade rolls, waffles, scones etc.....
1 cube butter
1/2 c. buttermilk
1 cup sugar

bring above to a boil
remove from heat and add 1 teaspoon of baking soda and 1 teaspoon of vanilla & a pinch of salt
(you can substitute maple extract for vanilla which is great also)
make sure you use a medium size pan- when you add the baking soda it foams up pretty good.

Bear Valley 2009

We had a great Presidents Weekend Vacation. We went to Bear Valley and rented a cabin with the Tilby Family. We had lots of fun skiin, snowboarding, playing in the snow, playing ping pong, playing pool, eating, making jumps, having snowball fights, playing games at night, eating baby food, watching movies and being in good company. The Brackett family came and spent a day with us as well. We had over 8' of snow fall while we were there. We thought it would be kind of fun to be snowed in for a few extra days. No such luck!

Logan had his last basketball game the day before we left for President's weekend vacation. He had a great game- lots of baskets, lots of assists, lots of steals and lots of rebounds. This team we played is our main rival- Fernley and we won!!!! Logan is #5 and they had a #5 named Logan as well. Sometimes it got a little confusing. He had a great season and we look forward to next year! Now he is on to Baseball tryouts on the 28th. We will keep our fingers crossed.

Roses Are White

Barry brought me a dozen white roses for V-Day. They were beautiful- the only problem was that we were going out of town the day he bought them so they had to stay here. I told him they would probably be dead by the time we got back. He had the brilliant idea to "take a picture" :0)

Aunt Heather- my best friend from HHS- came out to visit with her two girls. We had so much fun. Ivy loved, loved, loved Jaidyn. She was so sweet and loving with her. we played lots of games..
Aunt Heather got lots of baby love from Jaidyn

Holly loved to wear the kids hats and boots.

My kids and I loved having Heather visit. She is such a sweet and beautiful person. We played games, shopped, made jewelry, ate, played and painted. What a great time.

Do you want a shot at the Title?

Logans friends always seem to want to wrestle with Barry. I try to warn them- but they don't listen. This is Dakota and Barry wrestling- at a few points Dakota seemed to be doing quite well.
