Wolfington Christmas 2010

We had the Wolfington side of the family over for dinner and Christmas eve fun.  Dylan was able to make it for a little while but we didn’t have our cameras out.  We missed the Noah and the Bryants.  Hopefully next year we can all get together.  Aunt Jill organized a gingerbread making activity which everyone, including Grandma Tracy got into.

Logan, Grandma, Kenyon, Makenzie, Uncle Steven.

Temple Lights

We had a surprise visit from our favorite family friends from Tucson – the Billings.  We ate pizza and then went to the Temple to see the lights.  Christmas 2010 007 Christmas 2010 006

Get Away

Christmas 2010 002

Jeff surprised me with an over night get away to the Buttes for our Anniversary.  A full 24 hours without kids.  It was very relaxing.  We lounged around, went to dinner, went to the mall to do a little shopping, slept in, and went to a movie!

Gilbert Days


My partners in crime and I have decided to run a few races this season.  So we started out easy with a 5k at Gilbert days. 

DSC04331 The kids and I ran the 1 mile fun run last year.  They wanted to run again this year so we enlisted dad’s help.  Here they are crossing the finish line.DSC04332

 Michelle is faster than me and Gretchen.  Here she is crossing the finish line.  I think that she ran 10 minute miles.  Way to go Michelle.
