Happy Birthday Whitlee!!

Whit, age 8. Rodeo Queen!
Whitlee and Katelynn.
Whitlee and the "Brown Braeden" the next time she saw him, he was blonde and she didn't like it! She wanted the Brown Braeden! Cute dance picture!
Whitlee, Caroline and the poor sucker who got his ears pierced!!

Holy Cow!! Whitlee is 18! Sorry I'm a day late, but here are a few of my favorite pix and memories of Whitlee.

Famous one-liners:

Run Forest!!
I can teach you how to make a left hand turn!
Nobody this good looking should feel so sick.
Where's the Brown Braeden? I like the Brown Braeden!
C'mon. You're an adult now and you can make your own decisions. I think you should get your ears pierced. (And he did!!!!)
I'm dating a boy who is a twin. I call one brother "Lazy Eye" and the other "Dumbo Ears". I then asked, Who are you dating? She replied, "Lazy Eye"

Oh Whitlee. It has been a fun-filled 18 years. Just watching you grow up has been a great source of entertainment. I look forward to many more years of your great stories around the dinner table.

Camping at Valley of Fire

Wow! Two posts in one day. Maybe that will make up for going two weeks without a post. Last Thursday we loaded the van, hitched the trailer, packed some food and headed out to Valley of Fire. We camped, roasted marshmellows, hiked, played games (Tom is the Champ of "Pretty Pretty Princess) and enjoyed some time with our family. It was sooo much fun!!!!
We hiked a big rock right above our campsite. So here's a picture of our trailer with our shadows above.
Yes. Braeden really is THAT TALL! The dog was the biggest chicken of the bunch. There were a few times we had to carry the big baby!!
The rock climbing is AWESOME!!!!
Braeden found a friend!
Really. Tom came with us. He just had the camera most of the time!

Stake Play

Yeah!!! It's over!!! The quad-stake plays were last week and I can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Our stake did The Wizard of Oz. It was really cute. The munchkins were darling, especially those "Lolipop Guild" boys. They wore shorts with long socks and had their hair slicked to look like Alfalfa (sp?). Caroline was pretty darn cute as well! It was a lot of work, but fun. There were days I called those little munchkins "Sugar Filled Cherubs". In the end it was well worth working with such great little munchkins!

Happy Birthday Derrick!!

Happy Birthday Derrick!! You are my favorite brother. The reason you're my favorite is because I have no other. I like this picture. It captures the affect you have on people! Lots of love from your sister who still has emotional scars from believing she was adopted!
