Dave had a business trip to Maui, so I got to tag along. I had a few tag-alongs too. Derek, Julie, and Grandma. We got to stay 10 days and it was fabulous. Derek loved the beach and the girls got to go parasailing. We got to play tennis everyday and spend a lot of time at the ocean and the pool.

This is the view from our balcony at the hotel.

Here is our parasailing adventure.

We had to double up so I got to go with this person named Gale.


Another fun Halloween has come and gone. We didn't expect much trick-or-treating time when we started in the pouring rain. But Chris drove them around for a couple of hours and they took in quite the haul.


Chloie had a fun birthday. She got to go to Stadium of Fire with Chris. We went to eat at the Spaghetti Factory and got to sit in the trolley. She helped make her birthday cake which was a butterfly
For Branson's birthday, we had the week of Branson. Dad was gone on his birthday so we had a party before he left. Then he got to go to Classic Skating with friends. Then we had a party with a train cake on his real birthday. Plus, he got what he has been wanting soooo bad. A motorcycle.
Cassidy go to have a few birthday parties too since mom and dad were in Hawaii on her birthday. Good thing Chris was around to throw her a party and aunt Vickie took her shopping.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Cassidy got to sing at the BYU softball game. Her main goal was to sing loud. I think she accomplished her goal.

What does a mom do?

We went on vacation a couple of weeks ago. Cassidy was talking to Dave about it and asked him these questions:

Is Chloie going to miss school?
Is Branson going to miss school?
Am I going to miss dance class?
Are you going to miss work?
Is Mom going to

I guess it's because, even while on vacation, I still got to feed, clean up after, and take care of the kids. So I didn't have to miss out on much.

The kids love playing in the snow. Even Derek was a pretty good sport. Hopefully we have one or two more years where sledding in the back yard is still fun.

Our baby is ONE!

I can't believe Derek is already one year old, although it is hard to remember life without him. He started walking just before his birthday. He is a happy boy (unless he is being tormented by his brother or sisters). He hasn't mastered sleeping through the night, but has managed to do it once or twice. He loves to eat!
Happy Birthday Derek!
