Josh and Ashley visit for dinner

This is a test of Cristy's ability to blog with pics.

This is so sad

Seems my lovely wife is techno-illiterate and can't update a blog. I am shamed but since I love her so, I'm going to give her one more chance before I take it back over.

Catching Up

From Auntie and the Boys

Well it has been quite a while since we updated the blog, so here's a little information to catch you up. In October, Jack broke his leg by twisting out of his bumbo seat, but he healed within a month and was out of the cast by Halloween. In November we welcomed Briana and Kyle and Grandpa for Thanksgiving, a good time was had by all. December brought Christmas, a visit from Auntie, and Jack's first birthday. If you click on the picture it will link you to our web album and you can see all the pictures of these events!

Now it is the first of February, and we are all doing great. Mike has started coaching a rugby team, which he loves, Alex is plugging away at the violin and is looking forward to soccer, Max has just started Tae Kwon Do (he's a natural) and Jack is starting to learn to walk. I spend most of the day holding his hands so he can explore his surroundings on foot. Which is part of the reason I have not updated our blog until now! (Other than being lazy :)

First day of school

After a very short summer it seems, it's back to school! The boys looked so handsome in their uniforms. Max is getting used to having all morning free before going to afternoon kindergarten at noon. It is a struggle! Alex is really liking the 4th grade. His 4th grade teacher (Mr. Carlton) is a lot of fun, and has already told us the class will be making models of castles by the end of the year - and Alex is so excited to build one out of legos! of course. Alex also got his cub scout Bear award and is moving on to Webelos. Jack is just having fun watching all the activity around him. He is already 8 months old and growing way too fast for Mom's liking. He is a very happy baby and loves to smile and laugh. We are truly blessed!

Sunday Afternoon at Causey Resevoir

Went up with the Cronins to Causey for a picnic and a little play. Had a blast...It was the last weekend of Summer. Ah well, back to school and the grind.

Summer swimming

We enjoyed Mark's pool a lot this summer - it is definitely our favorite activity! These pictures were taken the end of July (I'm a little behind on our blogging). Alex LOVES to go swimming and would stay in the pool all day and night if we let him. Max is turning into quite a little fish this year too thanks to a month of swimming lessons - thanks Mark and Janette!

Summer Trip to Spokane

We just got home from a trip to see Cristy's family in Spokane. There was a big family reunion and we camped out at Priest River for a couple of the days. I think its safe to say that we all had a blast. Zip gave all of us a CD with all the genealogical work she has done on the Shoff side and I'm going through it now. Wow, what a lot of great info. It was good seeing everyone and I think the kids had a blast with the cousins.
