Here are some pictures of recent messes. The first is of the kids grabbing folded laundry off the changing table and pulling it on the floor while they are in their cribs. The second is of Heidi putting diaper-rash cream up her nose.

Big Help!

Caroline loves to help. She especially wants to help in the kitchen. Here is a picture of her wearing her great-grandmother's apron after 'washing' the dishes. Heidi is just being herself.


We know these are late, but here a few pictures from Christmas, including the chalkboard made by Brother Erickson. He was kind enough to make it for our kids, even though he is busy. David's parents were also able to come down and visit, which was really fun for everyone. We hope that everyone had a Merry Christmas!

Portland Temple

The day after we went on the train ride, we visited the Portland Temple. These pictures don't capture the true beauty of it. It was so much fun, except for the rain, and the kids loved it.

Christmas Train at the Zoo!

The Portland Zoo lights up their zoo and opens their train at night so that people can take rides and see the many colorful exhibits. Uncle Brian took us there this year, and we all had a great time. It was lots of fun, and the kids had a blast. The kids love trains, and so this was a real treat for them. These are just a few of the pictures. Thank you Uncle Brian!

Thanksgiving with the Ards

No, we don't know why she is earing Grandma's rubber gloves on her feet.

Be prepared!
