First Day of Third Grade!

I don't know how it happened, but Jayce is growing up! 

I am now employed at a high school, so the first day of school is a very, very busy day, and I wasn't able to go with Jayce to his first day of third grade :(. The day before I told Jayce I wanted to talk to him about something important, and then I asked him if he is ok with me not taking him on his first day of school. He acted shocked that I thought it was any big deal and he was fine with just Mark taking him. Whew! But, Mark sent me these pictures in the morning -

Technology is wonderful...the next best thing to beign there!
He has a teacher who is brand new to Park Village, and so far so good! We're off to a great start of the school year!

Sutherland Family Reunion in Breckenridge!

Words can't express how great it was to be with the Sutherland family last week. We were so bummed to be missing Dallin, Erin, Caitlin & Billy.

The whole crew who was able to come.

Once again we had a bbq dinner and a show by Two Below Zero. Loved those guys!

The Sheriff and Dan. Dan is made the new deputy.

 Kelly, staring as Daisy May!

Rock climbing!

White water rafting!

The best part of the week were the devotionals by the grandkids, and the family home evenings by our generation. Grandpa has established as our family motto "No Empty Chairs at our Celestial Table." We all talked about how we plan to make that happen. I love our family!

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day wouldn't be complete without a Valentine's mailbox to take to school.

Making valentines...

With candy, of course!

 Love making Valentine's treats!

And love putting hearts all over the can't really tell in this picture, but we put them everywhere!

And, roses from Mark, of course!

Christmas Memories 2013

Caitlin and Billy came to spend the Christmas holidays with us. They went on a double-date to Christmas Card Lane with Cody and Cambrie. So fun!

We love using our Christmas dishes! Jayson made the napkin rings!

Travis and Cami came to have Christmas Eve dinner with us. Love these two!

 We love getting ready for Santa! Jayson gets everything ready.

And all ready for the kids to come downstairs!

Our tradition of everyone waiting on Mom and Dad's bed until everyone is awake...then the whole crew can come downstairs to see what Santa brought!

A favorite part of Christmas is Pennie unwrapping her gifts.

Look out, Cody got a gun for Christmas!

 The boys wanted to take Billy and Caitlin to experience Sky Zone, a trampoline place in Chula Vista. We had a great time, but everyone got super tired!

Cody is a dodgeball master! He has to be careful not to hurt anyone.
