Messy Girls!

This morning, Brenda was working on sending a package to a friend when the she noticed that the girls were a giggling and a little too quiet. She found them in the main Bathroom playing with an entire container of Diaperrash cream. This container in a pound (16oz.) and they have almost half of it on themselves. Brenda was...not amused. It is funny, but messy!

Halloween Pumkins

The day before Halloween, Brenda's brother, Brian, came down for a visit. He brought a drop-clothe with him, and he helped the kids carve their first pumpkin. It was cleaner than you would have though with three small kids. The kids seemed to like stirring the 'guts' with spoons, but didn't enjoy handling it with their hands. Heidi was the exception and ate the 'guts' seeds and all. It made for some interesting diapers. We were glad that Brian could join us. It's so great to live near him, and to be able to do things with him.

Pulling his weight

Hyrum decided to pull his weight around the house by helping Mom clean up after breakfast. That is why he is still in his P.J.'s. He is scrubbing yogurt of the table after he and his sister ate it fro breakfast with Cheerios. They like yogurt instead of milk on their cereal. He really loves to help any way he can. He is so cute!

Today we went to Newport, OR with Uncle Brian and Aunt Brittney (Brenda's Brother and sister). We had a lot of fun. Here are some pictures of us at the beach. It was good weather, and it was not too cold. Newport is a fun place to visit. We ate a t a great Chowder place called Mo's before we came home.

Ard's visit Ard's

A few weeks ago, David's parents and little sister came down for a visit. It was great to have them here. Caroline, Heidi, and Hyrum loved to see them as well. It is so much more fun now that our families live closer, the can actually visit and not take days to do it.
As you can tell from the pictures, the kids had a blast with David's family. We love them very much and hope for many more visits. We got some funny shots of Hyrum and his opinion of his Dad's photography.

Silver Falls-Labor Day!

Silver Falls is a State Park that has a series of waterfalls in it. There was also a lot of hiking, camping, and picnic areas. We only went to one of the many waterfalls because of time/children. It was great, and we all had lots of fun. It was great to spend Labor Day with our family and Uncle Brian (Brenda's older brother). Here is Brenda and Caroline on the trail. It sure was beautiful
This is a picture of the falls from the bottom. The trail actually goes behind the falls, and it is a magnificent site.

This is the same waterfall only from higher on the hill. It is hard to really appreciate the size of the thing without being right up next to it.

This is Uncle Brian. He came down from Portland to visit and to spend Labor with us at the park. It was lots of fun having him around. He was a big help.

This is the Ard's eating at our picnic area. It was great. We had salads, sandwiches, chips, juice, and deviled eggs. It was a lot of fun, and the kids loved it!

Hyrum's First Haircut!

David cut Hyrum's hair this week. It was hard, since he kept trying to see what we were doing. In the end, it turned out well. He matches David very well.

Heidi's eye's are bigger than her stomach!

Our wild animal!

Hyrum is in touch with his wild side!

Super Heidi!

Unknown to the common citizen, Lebanon has a masked crusader! Her disguise is flawless!

Milk Time!

Heidi was drinking a bottle of milk on the couch, so Hyrum climbed up and decided that she had the right idea and he joined her.

Now in Oregon!

We are now in Oregon! We arrived a month ago, and now we are finally getting settled. David's job didn't work out, and now he is in the market for a job. He has had several interviews with places like Safeway, FedEx Express, and Good Samaritan Health Services. Nothing has come out of them so far, but some of the jobs have not decided yet.

Hyrum's pictures

Here is our little man. He is so cute!

Heidi's pictures

Here are some pictures of Heidi. She loves life!

Caroline Pictures

Here are some pictures of Caroline. She is a very beautiful little girl.

Family Pictures

The Bair's, A couple in our ward, were kind enough to take some pictures of our family and give us a CD of the pictures. They were very good photographers, and they gave us some pictures that we can treasure for years to come. Here are a few of our favorites of our family. We sure do have cute kids.

Vacation Part 4 (Snoqualmie)

Here is the Giant Log of Snoqualmie. The end we see is the small end. The picture does not do it justice.
This is Snoqualmie Falls. It is the place where David purposed to Brenda. The view we have here is the same view they had when he popped the question. It is 270 ft tall, and is a city park.

Here is Caroline at the Falls. She was very impressed.

Brenda and Hyrum loved to see the Falls.

This is actually a snowplowing train. The giant blades chew up the snow and shot it out of the way.

Vacation Part 3

This is the kids on the way to Washington. We are taking a break after Heidi gaged herself and vomited on her car seat.

This is the three kids in the cockpit of an F/A-18 Hornet. They are all having a lot of fun.

This is the Museum of Flight in Seattle. It has a lot of great exhibits about aviation and space. This is a bomber on the outside of the museum.

Here is the Railroad Museum in Snoqualmie, Washington. This is David's hometown.

Caroline really liked to climb onto the exhibits. We had to stop her from going too far.
These are some of the engines that work at the museum. Hyrum was impressed, and Heidi slept through it.
Here is a picture of the love of my life. I think she is gorgeous wherever she is!
