Meet Natasha

Meet our new addition. She is such a sweet, gentle girl. She is Husky and German Shepard mix. We got her at the shelter through an owner release, if you can believe it. MUCH to our gain. We look forward to getting to know her. There are so many things we want to teach her and play with her. We already have BIG plans for her for the winter:) Mush, Tasha, Mush. . .

Scandanavian Days

Every year, over the Memorial Day weekend, our family heads down to Ephraim, Ut to the Scandanavian Days Festival. Geoff has played there with a blue grass band for over 12 years. It is now a family tradition. Great music, fun booths and the best Swedish meatballs in the world! Here is a photo of Geoff's main band, Lincoln Highway. We love, em:)
Love this video. You get to hear some of Geoff's music and see the girls dance. Can't get any better than that. Who is the cute bass player:)?

Jason is at bootcamp

My little brother, Jason, went to boot camp about two weeks ago. He just felt it was right for him and his family. I admire him and hope all goes well for him. He does admit that they shout is his face A LOT. After boot camp, he then goes to Arizona for some advanced training. In all, he'll be away from his family for about 7 months. Good luck, Jay. Love ya.

Arbor Day

We planted trees this weekend. Well, not on the actual Arbor Day which is April 30th. We are really trying to beautify our home. And to us, that means planting trees. If you jump on, they will send you 10 trees for $10. You type in your zip code and they will sell you trees that are best for you area. So sweet.


Hey! Who was the wise guy who came up with Spring Soccer in Utah??! It is still so cold! Just last week, Mandy played in the rain and hail. All the parents were demanding the game to be called and all the kids just kept playing. Here are some great shots of my girls playing.

Dance Recitals

Well, another year, another great dance recital. Mandy and Lucy did such a great job. They were so darling and I cried through both of their dances. Not only did I cry because they did such a great job but I cried because they are so beautiful, and because I remember when they were first born, and because time goes by so fast and they are growing up, and because I wonder if I've been a good mother to them and. . . Anyway, you get the picture. I love them so much.
