The Big Three Oooohhhh!

That's right - I'm finally 30!

Kevin got up at 5:30 a.m. to make me a yummy Birthday Breakfast. Blueberry pancakes with whipped cream and strawberry syrup, hashbrowns, grapefruit, and a bacon, red pepper, green pepper, 3 cheese omelet! What a lucky girl I am! Notice the cute pancakes in the shapes of 3s and 0s. Good job Kev!

We went rollerskating and had a great time together. The kids especially enjoyed it! Both Kevin and I were surprised at how hard it was to remember how to roller skate. It sure seemed easier when I was 10! Oh, and did you know the risk of injury increases after the age of 21? Hmmm, I wonder why?

Josh - taking a break

Kev and David

Ben was a Speed Demon on his scooter! He criss crossed in front of people and once came to a sudden stop and started going the wrong way! It was hilarious watching people swerve to miss him. I was sure we were going to make a trip to InstaCare - if you know Ben, you know this is not an unfamiliar destination for him! But thankfully, no injuries. Although he did get a bloody nose, from what - we're not sure. And neither is he!

Me and my Mom.
She came over on my birthday and watched Ben and David the whole day so I could have a break. Thank you Mom!

What better way to end a birthday than with cake and ice cream! Okay, so we didn't have cake. But we did have excellent banana splits with my favorite ice cream from the BYU Creamery - Chocolate Fudge Mousse! Ooooh - la - la!

Christmas 2007

Josh, Izzy, and Ben showing off their new stuff. Where's David, you might ask? Well. . .

David (9 months) had no interest in presents - All he wanted to do was eat breakfast! So he sat in his highchair and watched the rest of the family open their gifts.

Izzy got a new dress from Grandma Peggy and roller skates from Santa. If you ask her, Izzy will tell you she looks quite "posh" in her new stuff. ("Posh is a fancy word for fancy" - from the Fancy Nancy Books, Izzy's favorite books)

Josh got a Nintendo DS Lite from Santa and the Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga game from us. He loves it - it is pretty cool, truth be told. But, I tell you, this video game world that Kevin & I are entering (and I say entering because Josh is the oldest :-) is a world that we don't know. Did you know they're not called game "cartridges" anymore? Who knew? Does that make me seem old?

Ben and his SUPER FAST scooter from Santa. He rode it all Christmas day. Into the kitchen, into the front room, into the family room, into the kitchen, into the front room. . . it truly was a dizzying day! He tells me that the flames on his scooter make him go faster!

More Coming. . .
