Spring break 2015

It has been spring break this week, and we decided to take advantage of the week off of school and work by taking a trip to Vegas.  We flew down there on Sunday afternoon, and stayed until Thursday night.  It was warm, sunny, and a lot of fun. We stayed in a condo on Las Vegas lake.  Away  from the strip.  It was a beautiful resort with a lot of palm trees.  I love palm trees!  We went on the strip one day and had fun at M&M world, the Hershey's store, eating gelato at the Venetian, seeing the Eiffel tower, and having dinner at Excaliber.  It was a great day! We spent the other two days, swimming, shopping, and seeing Hoover Dam. It was a fun week filled with a lot of playing and relaxing.  Now we are refreshed and ready to finish up our last couple of month of school.

Just dance

Miss Amity is taking us in a whole different direction with her extracurricular activity choices.  Both Landon and Danica  love music, choir and band, piano, art, those types of activities. Amity loves, and I mean loves anything that she can move her body to.  She loves to tumble, cheer, run, and dance.  We are getting introduced to all kinds of different activities which has been a lot of fun.  This weekend she had a dance competition she was participating in.  She was so nervous and excited. She did great!  It was so fun watching her do the things she really loves.

Just some random pics

Miss Danica has been busy with her choir solo and ensemble. She performed twice. Once at a recital for parents, and once for judges. Her and a small group of girls performed Lemon Tree and did an awesome job. They got superior scores!

Miss Amity has been dancing and cheering her heart out.  This girl loves to move! She has had a few cheer performances, and has a dance competition this weekend. I love to watch her dance because you can tell that she loves it.

Landon is busy as usual. He also had solo ensemble, a potato dinner and action at school for band, and is going to state for BPA.

To top it all off, all the kids have been busy helping us install the wood floor upstairs.  They are great helpers and hard workers.  I tease Landon by telling him how eligible he will be knowing how to do all this home improvement stuff.  Girls love men who can make their houses beautiful.  :)

An Eagle project

 Boy time flies and a lot happens around here before I get to post about it. Over Christmas break Landon completed his Eagle project. He decided to build shelves for the band room. He loves band and decided that doing something for the band organization would be the perfect fit for him. He discussed it with his band teacher, drew up some plans, and went to work. He was able to do the project in a couple of days with a lot of help from his dad and friends from his teacher's quorum. It was a wonderful experience, and both Landon and the boys learned a lot about building, tools, and hard work.

Birthday month

It has been a fun fall around here so far.  The kids are all having a great time at school this year, and we are staying way busy.

We have had the first day of school. Landon is a Sophmore this year, Danica is in seventh grade, and Amity is in third grade.

We have had marching band all fall. That is my favorite time of the year.  It is fun to go see Landon's band play at football games and competitions.

We have also had birthdays.

Miss Danica turned Thirteen. I can't believe it.  I now have two teenagers.  She is such a cute girl.  She loves her friends, clothes, doing hair, art, and school.  She works hard at school and gets awesome grades.  She always tries hard to make good choices, and loves Young womens. We are proud of Danica.

Miss Amity turned nine this year.  She is in third grade and loves it! She does great at school, Loves loves loves hanging out with her friends, loves to dance, tumble, run, play, basically anything that involves moving her body.  She is our outgoing, bubbly child and loves to joke around and make us laugh.  We love having Amity in our family!

Landon also got invited to join National Honor's society. We are proud of him.  He works hard at school, and at home.  He wakes up every morning at ten to five to deliver papers before early morning band, gets awesome grades, and fulfills all his church and scout obligations.  He also runs a business and creates websites for some businesses around town.

October has been a busy month so far, but a fun month too!

Catching up

Holy cow it has been forever since I have written anything on this blog.  There was a time I wrote a lot more regular than I do now. A lot has happened since I have posted last... Seriously over a year has passed by.  Landon completed his Freshman year of highschool.  He was involved in band, BPA, robotics, drivers ed, and of course his business.

Danica finished her first year of junior high. Sixth grade was good to Danica. She turned twelve, was involved in choir, art, and did amazing on her school work.  She has some great friends she loves to hang out with and of course, loves young womens.

Amity had a wonderful second grade school year.  She got the teacher of her dreams, had a lot of friends in her classes, turned eight, got baptized, and tumbled and bounced her way through the year. 

A lot more happened in between, I worked at the school, Jeff traveled... A LOT...and we had a great summer.  I love looking at old pictures, and reading old posts. It is like a journal for me.  I have a goal to post a lot more regularly.
