It’s becoming an annual tradition for us to host Easter, thankfully we love doing it. The weather wasn’t spectacular, but given the forecast Kari was claiming all week (torrential downpour all day) it turned out pretty okay. We weren’t stuck indoors and the kids got to hunt eggs in the back yard. Looking forward to […]
So I had to look up how to spell twelfth. I tried twelveth but that’s clearly wrong, indicated by the red dotted line below it. Anywhoo… Tory turned twelve this year and celebrated with friends Jeremiah, Christian, Sophia, and Talon. Kari found a bowling alley and arcade down in Salt Lake and it was a […]
Tegan celebrated her birthday by taking some friends to the Midway Ice Castles on opening night. There were a ton of people there but it sure was neat! She brought Manon, Morgan, and Ella along, and they all slept over after eating ice cream and watching a movie:
For some reason we rarely get good photos at Halloween. Here’s a few from the night. It being a weekday and all, we had a small-is affair starting at our house. We then strolled the neighborhood trick-or-treating, ending up at Kristen and Pete’s. Spring Creek is becoming a top-notch Halloween neighborhood! Tegan was Granny, a […]
For the third year in a row we headed up into the Uintas with the Marsh family to pick out (and cut down) a Christmas tree. For the kids it’s a chance to sled and jump and play in the snow, and to be honest, for us adults too. The weather was warm (relatively) and […]
A spontaneous Mothers Day found us hiking into Diamond Fork hot springs. We took a new route – hiking in from the north. It was a quiet hike with only a few others on trail. The hot springs were busy as usual, but still a very very nice day with the family!
Tory turns 8!
Tegan turned 6 this year, here’s how she celebrated:
The tradition seems to change each year – whether we let the kids open gifts on Christmas Eve or morning… This year they opened most on Christmas morning:
The Kindergartners put on a sweet Christmas Carol pageant every year. It’s very sweet to watch them all up there singing and dancing.
In past holiday seasons we’ve either purchased a regular cut tree from the nursery, or a live tree we hope to plant in the spring. This year we decided to get a permit to cut our own. Putting aside the discussion on how ethical it is to cut a tree out of the forest, we headed […]
Thanksgiving 2014 at our house! Grandpa and Grandma Moe came, Sam Michelle and Soph, and Mel’s family also was there. Very nice meal, good people.
Certainly didn’t get enough photos for Halloween. Bad daddy.
It’s become an annual tradition to spend Easter with our Park City friends, hoping for sunny warm weather to mark the end of winter. This year the McCains hosted at their new house in Prospector. Fun day for the kids and the adults.
It was another year for the joint party for Tory and Tegan. They asked to do it so I guess we’ll keep it up until they say otherwise. This year they wanted to go to Black Diamond Gymnastics, which included an hour and a half with two coaches and it was a lot of fun. […]
Thanksgiving was spent in Minnesota this year. It was a relatively quick trip, spending a couple of days at each grandparents house. On Thanksgiving day a bunch of the Landgrens came to my folks house, so it was filled to the brim. Very nice to see Grandma Jeane, Bill & Trudy, Tom & Louise, as […]
The Canyons resort throws off their fireworks on the 3rd of July every year, and it’s getting bigger and bigger each year. So we’re lucky to have our friends the DeFord’s living so close we can avoid the traffic and parking headaches. They invited a bunch of us over for dinner before the concert, and […]
Easter was early this year (I think) but thankfully the weather was warm and sunny. We spent the day relaxing in the back yard while the kids hunted down elusive eggs and treats.
Their birthdays being 5 days apart, celebrations overlap and get shared. This year we had a party at our house, with sledding, games, and a special box of doom with brains and goo and treats hidden inside. It was a ton of fun. The adults had an evening soup fest later on too. On Tegan’s […]
Christmas season pics and stuff.
The kindergarten through second graders put on a Christmas carol show, including such hits as Nuttin’ for Christmas, and a bunch of others sung at scream level. It was fantastic.
Thanksgiving in Minnesota – A quick trip overall but we got a few days in with my folks, saw Sarah and Jeff, Kari’s folks, Jarrett and Mel flew in, and finished it off with a party at Bridget and Tim’s. Whirlwind.
