Long Time No Post

We have been trying to get settled into our new place. We are living
in a duplex that is a great size (3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms)
but we do not want to live here forever. T is
trying to finish his Masters Thesis and then we will continue looking
for a house. We have tried to balance work with fun and I think
we have done a good job of it.

Memorial Day

On Memorial Day we got together with my family and we took
pictures of the 18 grandchildren. This is the first picture of the
mall togeter and it will be out of date in September. I have two
sisiters in law that will be having babies in the fall.

L to R: (Top Row) Cooper, Mikaela, Madison, Meg, Aubrie

(Middle Row) Roxy, Hannah, Halli

(Bottom Row) Taylor with Camilla, Jaxon with Kade, Cougar, B,

Kelsey with A, Connor with Emma

We also took pictures of the 5 in 05. There were 5 babies born
in my family in 2005 between May and December.
(they have been named the "5 in 05")

L to R: B (Sept. 1), Hannah (Sept. 28), Halli (Dec. 28),
Roxy (Aug. 15), Cougar (May 31)

Here are the 4 babies born in 07
L to R: A (June 14), Emma (June 15),

Kade (Sept. 1), and Camilla (Nov. 20)

Family Night

We went with T's sister's family to Second Dam in Logan
Canyon. We had a really fun family night.

Roasting Mashmallows...YUM!

The Chef: Jason

A having the time of his life.

B with cousins Nikell, Mialee, and Sierra
They spent the evening throwing rocks into the water.

We went to the park and had a blast. (Somehow I have
no pictures of B. I think they were all videos.)

T thinks he can still sit in the child swings.

A is happiest when he is outside.
National Free Fishing Day 2008

JeriDawn invited us to go to National Free Fishing Day with
her and her girls. We had a blast even though it was freezing.
I love living close to family that knows when all the fun
activities are. Thanks JeriDawn!

B with cousin Mialee. They were fishing together
and they caught a big, green MOSS!
They loved it!

B "learning" how to tie flies. (Sierra is really the one
doing all the work but B is having fun!)

I was so happy to see a new post on your blog! The pictures are great. My favorite is the one of Taun on the swing. :-)

We are just soooo happy that you finally made it to Logan. It was way tooo long of a process. We are glad that you are here to join in the fun with us!

Wow! I can't believe that your parents will have 20 grandkids!! That is so neat.
In my mom's family, my brother is one of the "5 in '75". It's funny how babies come in groups :)

Those shots of the 5 in 05 and the 4 in o6 was it? remind me of the way things are in my side of the family. it took 5 years to get the first 4 grandkids then we had six the very next year. we are now up to 50 and some are still having kids. I'm telling you family parties are mass chaos to say the least. But we all love it! Family is the best!

The thought of that many kids almost gives me a panic attack...almost.

It sounds like things are going good. We miss you!
