Rappelling Adventure

The two oldest kids went adventuring with their dad and some friends!

Oh, What Fun!

A week ago, over the Thanksgiving holiday, we were able to do something we've never done before! We went with Gene's sister's family to Ashley National Forest and cut down our first REAL Christmas tree!
What an experience! I didn't know picking out a tree could be so difficult. Gene's sister and her husband had their tree picked out within the first twenty minutes. But not Gene and I.

I just assumed that there would be a light shining down with angelic voices singing pointing out OUR TREE. Not so. It never happened.

We did find our tree, however. It took us until the very end of the outing, of course. And we did get to strap it to the top of van and drive all the way home! AHHH... the memories.

I Can Make a Difference

{this post is written by the girl herself!}

last year I drew a picture for the recycle contest. I didn't think I was going to win but I gave it a shot, and guess what I WON!!! I won 2nd place and got my picture in a 2010 calender.

We had our ultrasound Tuesday early evening. Any guesses on what this fifth little Blair will be?

Family Vacation

A week ago we returned from a fun-filled, memorable family vacation. We were lucky enough to go with some other families, Rebecca and Brandon and Katrina and Spencer. My mom and Aunt Maria also joined for a few days.

We went to the beach, Disneyland, and then back to the beach. In the end, it was hard to return back to our regular routine. Hopefully, we'll have good stories to share for a long time.

{not all the pictures were taken by me. a few were taken by aryn and gene.}
