Ashton turns 7!

Ashton enjoyed his birthday a lot!  We had a small gathering at Chuck E Cheese with three of his closest friends.  We are so proud of who is becoming!  Happy Birthday Ashton!

Being 7 is AWESOME!

Celebrating 15 years!

Derrik and I celebrated our 15th anniversary in between visitors over break.  While out for dinner, I came across a note in my purse from the boys:
With the note they gave us $3 and some change towards our celebration.  Love!

And when we came home, Ashton and Cameron had created a masterpiece out of magnets.  These guys know how to celebrate us!

New Years Resolutions

We went out as a family tonight to Chili's (Thanks Deckers!) to celebrate 2012.  I had a project (of course) for all of us to write out some goals for the new year.  We talked about some family goals and just enjoyed the evening out.  Happy New Year!

New Years with Grandma Bonnie

Mom also stopped by the Hubbard Bed and Breakfast for a few days.  The weather stayed nice and we even took the boys swimming!  We celebrated New Years in style - in front of the tv with lots of snacks!  We are glad she made the trip!

Papa Ron and Grandma Suzanne sighting!

 We got our first visitors from the west after Christmas!  We turned up the outside thermostat and had some beautiful and unseasonable weather, which was awesome.  We had a lovely time and can't wait for them to come back!

Our Christmas

Mario Kart!
 The boys started the morning early, but who could blame them.  We opened presents, had some yummy monkey bread and breakfast sandwiches and then enjoyed the gifts for the remainder of the day!

Santa brought Twinkies!
