Valentine's Day

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  Derrik and I went out for our date the night before to avoid the crowds.  We enjoyed a nice morning with Valentine's treats and made a big dinner at home with everyone and apple pie for dessert!  Yum!  A great day!

Weekend Concerts

Over the weekend, we went to two different concerts!  In Ontario, we saw TobyMac and friends in the Hits Deep tour.  Then on Monday, we went to a local church to see Matt Maher.  Ethan missed out on both concerts due to work, but the rest of us went and had so much fun!

Honor Band Auditions

Cameron participated in a district-wide honor band auditions over the weekend.  It is hard to get into honor band but the audition also determines seat placement in band for the upcoming semester.  Guess who got first clarinet chair in the Symphonic band?  Cameron!  It's been a hard year for him in band but he's hung in there and worked hard!  Congrats, Cam!

Out of town visitors

Wilma and Sonja came into town this last week to visit!  They both escaped the frozen midwest only to find a winter front with rain came through and made things chilly (for us, at least).  We had a great time seeing them and took them to In-N-Out for dinner!

Monday park trip!

We took another trip to our local park to fine-tune our frisbee skills!  We enjoyed a nice day off with beautiful weather!

Ashton's 13th Birthday!

Ashton is 13!!  He had an early celebration with the grandparents and then the morning of his birthday, opened some presents over pancakes and went to school.  Boo.....  Derrik took him out for lunch and then we all gathered at home after school for more presents and then out to dinner as a family.  He had a great day and loves being 13!






Nintendo Switch!
Brother love





Got a photo of Ethan and Cameron in their adidas shoes

We surprised Ashton with a Nintendo switch that
he's been asking for the last year or so.  He was so
shocked when he opened the package - it was great!


Cameron practice driving

Cameron and Derrik have done one driving lesson and Cam is now driving himself to school with Derrik.  He's on his way!

Griffith Observatory

On Cameron's winter break bucket list was a trip to the Griffith Observatory to take photos of L.A. at sunset.  We got there just in time to see most of the skyline was covered in clouds.  Cameron got some great photos, though.  A fun outing before we headed back to school!
