Egg Drop!

Hunter's GATE class had an egg drop. They had to come up with something to protect their egg as it was dropped...and sometimes launched off the roof of the school.

Hunter's egg was in a tissue box duct taped in an egg carton section, packed in tissues, and suspended by rubber bands!
It took some work to release it from its cocoon.
....and all was well....the egg survived!

Zane is a Bobcat!

Zane has officially joined the ranks of the cub scouts. He has a good time going to his den meetings.

He has earned his bobcat....the holding of the scout has now been banned since this picture....but it was nothing we did...promise!

Zane's Baptism

It's unbelievable that my little Zane got baby boy!

I am so thankful Craig could baptize Zane....he is such a good dad!

Little Zane and his Dad.
Congratulations Zane!

Zane's 8th Birthday Party!

Zane picked out this skateboarder cake out. He thought it was pretty cool. I can't believe my little buddy is already 8!

For Zane's party we went to king putt mini golf. As you can see it is a fun black light golf course in an Egyptian theme.

Here are all the cute kiddos from the party.

After golfing we came back to the house for cake, presents and playing. you think there are too many kids on the trampoline at once?

Happy Birthday Zane!

Winter trip to Utah!

We made a quick jaunt up to Utah this winter and visited my brother and his family. It was so fun to see all the pretty snow....which they always have a lot of in the winter. Everyone had a great time sledding. I was a beautiful day!

We went to visit Antelope Island in Salt Lake. I had never been before. It was magical. The pictures just don't do it justice. Each branch and twig was covered in little ice crystals and there was a lovely white fog hanging in the air. It was truly our own little winter wonderland.

The kids picked up this little trick, courtesy of Uncle Aaron, of shaking the trees to let snow and ice fall on every one's heads.

We even got to see some bison grazing. I am so glad we went when we did. I can't imagine that it is any prettier any time of year than on the day we went!

Alanna's 6 year old Princess Party!

Alanna had a Princess birthday party this year. She invited a bunch of her friends, and we gave each of them a princess crown to wear. They were such beautiful little princesses.

I made this little barbie princess cake.

We played some fun games. One of them was to dig for jewels in the was a total hit by the way. I wish I had taken a picture of "pin the crown on Alanna" . We had a poster picture of Alanna and they had to put the crown on her head. We also took pictures of the girls when they came with their crowns on and then printed them off on the computer and mod poged them to a little journal book with the title "My princess book"

We had a very fun afternoon!
