January 2015

Abby on New Year's Day... starting the year off looking and dressing more like a woman!

Russ asked Abby if she wanted a ride on Noah's dirtbike and she screamed in fear. He forced her on it and then she didn't want off... after taking a ride around the block, she cried until Russ would take her on another ride!

Grandma Vicki and matching cousins!

Russ and Noah sanding down the pinewood derby car in preparation for the big race!

Our stake puts on the most awesome Pinewood Derby!

Noah named his car the "arrow of light" and finished 4th... just one place away from getting a medal!

He did get the award for "most futuristic car" though :)

Russ has been hard at work in our new house... here he is making a start on the subway tile and installing hardware on the cabinets...

...while Abby hides INSIDE every cabinet she can fit herself into.

Sweet cousins Abby & Davis

New haircut!!

She's probably too old to be drinking bottles still but she loves them.


We dressed Abby up in her panda costume one night, just for fun. She cried when we had to take it off. She LOVES it.

Noah is playing in a basketball league for the first time since he was 4 years old. He is awesome and so much fun to watch!

Russ has been asked to keep score a few times. Abby sits right next to him and behaves herself surprisingly!

I had to get a picture of these 2 ten-year-old boys sharing a seat belt. haha :)

Little Miss Sneaky found some candy in Dad's nightstand and helped herself to it!

 Abby loves it when Daddy plays the guitar. She was dancing on the bed while he sang/played "can I have this dance"!

This is what happens at dinner time when you haven't a had a nap yet.

I went to California at the end of January with my mom and sisters. We met up with Aunt Alma and some cousins. We had a great time... eating, shopping, telling stories, and playing the name game!
