Lazy Sunday

Ira: " Mom, don't spin it round and round okay"

Then for the next few minutes Ira tormented Beck by threatening to shut the door.

February at the Cabin

We spent this past weekend up at the Shipley’s cabin. We took my parents and Candice and Dave. We had a great adventure in the snow. Beck spent all his time outside. He was in his element. He sledded down Richard’s hill for many hours. He was the last one left on the hill. Ira also enjoyed being in the snow. He had a hard time moving through it all. W also woke up to a foot of new powder. We had a riot playing all day in it. The hard part came to leaving. We had driven our car in and now needed to get out. We would have been stuck until spring if it was not for Richard’s snow cat. He got our car unstuck several times and in the end had to pull us the entire way down Maple Creek Canyon. Okay Jon, from now on we will snowmobile in.

Beck Get's Stitches

Beck tripped on our kitchen rug and took a header into a leg of our kitchen table. He received a pretty nasty,deep wound. Fortunately Jon was home to calmly handle the situation. We took him to the ER where he received 8 stitches. His gash went through to the scull. I told him if he would remain calm during his shot and stitches than he could go and pick up Mario Kart for the WII. He had about 6 shots right in his wound. He held perfectly still and did not make one peep. What a sweet, strong, brave boy. This was defiantly more traumatic on his mother. We reminisced about how Aunt Candice cut her head open around Valentines when she was 5 as well. Mom, once again was more worked up than Candice. He talked to Aunt Candice right when he walked out of the ER. Such a lucky boy to have so many people love and care about your well being. Now for Mom's sake, lets home the wound heals up nicely, your future wife will also agree.

Happy 1st Birthday Ruby

Our little doll is now one years old. We had a great celebration!

Ruby did not like us all singing to her. She started bawling.

Ruby Get's Teeth

Grammy Pammy knitted this darling sweater for Ruby girl. She also made me this amazing skirt to go with it.

The two top and two bottom have made their appearance. She could not be more unhappy about it during the night. She is not quite ready to show them off.

Love Love Love

Ruby is so excited to see the boys each morning. Today we were trying to wake up Beck for school. So I layed Ruby on him and she just cuddled right up to his face. This is the first picture I think I have ever taken where Beck wanted to be in the picture.

Haircuts all Around

It is amazing how a haircut can change the whole look and age of a person. The boys always seem so grown up when they get their hair cut. Beck is not to crazy about this new silly messy hair. Even the Rubs got a trim by Grammy Pammy.

Ruby Crawls

Just two weeks short of her first birthday, Ruby girl makes a move. Although she knows now that she can get around, she is still a little reserved about moving around too much. Of course mid crawl she has to stop to rip out her hair bow.
