Where's the love?

You know....I keep waiting for all the things that I think about putting on here to magically appear. But it doesn't seem to be happening! I guess I better get on the ball. Of course I currently feel like I am juggling a few dozen. I am learning that is not a good excuse either, since I will only collect more from here!

Summer Catch up 2

So our summer began with a family camping trip. It was every thing that camping should be. Food, fire, dirt, water, and just plain fun! Asa enjoyed time with the boys, playing star wars and cards and checkers. When it came time to sleep, he and his buddies decided that wasn't necessary. They were up until 3 or 4 in the morning chatting. Of course this was not done without the frequent reminders, "Boys, be quiet and go to sleep!!!" from all three mothers. Of course children do learn from example. The dads went night fishing that night and were out on the lake until after 4. Needless to say, everyone was very tired the next day, and quite grumpy. But it was worth the fun and the laughs - including the streak attempt from the ever entertaining Leah!

Summer Catch up

Okay, so you know it is really bad when your child points out 4 1/2 months later that he is no longer 8. So I have committed to myself to catch up on our summer doings. Starting with Asa'a birthday. Yes, he had one and is no longer 8, he is now 9!!! He is halfway through his time at home - a realization that I did not enjoy.

He was easily satisfied with legos and PS2 games - Lego Star Wars 2 and Backyard Baseball.
Here are his birthday questions....
1. What do you want to be when you grow up? A space engineer
2. Your favorite scripture story? Nephi getting the Golden Plates
3. Favorite animal? Dog
4. If you could live anywhere, where would you live? Tampa, FL w/ his Papa
5. Favorite treat? Reeses Peanut Butter Cup

Okay, so I am still very new to this blogging thing. I am trying to figure out how to set up other peoples blogs on mine so that I am alerted to when they write something new. Can anybody help me? I am sure there is just a simple thing that needs to be done, but I can't figure that out! I am getting frustrated so thought I would just start with asking for help!!!
This is where it is hard for me.....allowing myself to sit down and work on my blog. I know if I do a little bit every few days I would be able to keep up and have a decent blog going. But I have this really bad habit that I am trying to work on - I am trying to not say "I will do it tomorrow" quite so much. So, please be patient with me, but there is more to come. I need to go all the way back to Asa's birthday in June! We had a crazy busy fun summer, so now I have all kinds of fun pictures to put up and stories to tell. A few words of encouragement to myself and I will be back up and running.

My Fredo!

So my wife has finally taken the blog to heart and I think she's doing a fabulous job. But I still would like to add a post or two now and again, so when I do, I'll sign at the bottom.

Now to really get to the point of this post, as I was looking over what my wife has done, I noticed that she has not done a proper introduction of herself... so allow me the honor.

The picture above is one of my favorites of my wife KayLynn... or as I like to call her sometimes "Alfredo" or "Fredo" for short. This all came about as she was cooking dinner one night... She was making chicken in alfredo sauce. She picked up the jar of sauce and began to furiously shake it up, forgetting that she already loosend the lid. Well... we had alfredo sauce from floor to ceiling. It was awesome... especially because I was home and had free access to the camera. Ahhhh... I love my Fredo!

Thanks Ava!

Annika was as happy as can be when we surprised her with her best friend visiting. They had moved away about a year ago, and I could not convince Annika that she was not dead. So thanks Sarah for bringing Ava back!
