Our Family Christmas Party

We had a fun time together at our annual family Christmas Party! Ty, Brae, and Case are such good sports when Santa arrives. Here are some of the memories we made that night....

Ugly Sweater Contest!

On Wednesday, we had an ugly sweater contest at school. It was hilarious and we laughed all day long. My mom and dad's sweet friend Evelyn used to wear this sweater at Christmas time. I have to say, she looked beautiful in it. I looked hideous. When we were being judged during the contest, the other teachers were squinting from the glare off of the million or so sequins on my sweater!

NO!!!!! It is not snowing in Porterville!

So last night Tyler and his best friend Tyler decided to go toilet paper a couple of their friend's houses. Well the war has begun. At 1:30am, our doorbell rang and this is what we found.
I can't really complain too much. I would call this paybacks! I did my fair share of this type of extra-curricular activity not that many years ago!

Veteran's Day 2009

We had a busy and fun day on Veteran's Day. It was Ty's first parade to march in and the Brae and Case had a fun day too. Thank you mom and dad for spending the day with us too!

Family Pictures with the Sanders

We were able to spend Thanksgiving with the Sanders this year. My mother-in-law made special arrangements to have family pictures taken the day after Thanksgiving. Well, of course it was pouring down rain that morning, so we took "portrait" pictures. I think that they turned out great and I was happy to have some nice family pictures to share with everyone!
The whole family!
My niece Tiffany and I. I love this picture of us together!
Bret's mom and Dad. This picture is almost a miracle...My father-in-law does not do pictures, so we are thrilled to actually have a few with him in them.
This is a picture of the Sanders grandchildren.....
I like this picture of the my new sister-in-law, mother-in-law, and I. Our family feels complete now!
I sure am blessed to have such a wonderful husband and sons!

A Day of Quad Riding!

What a fun day we had together! We took the kids to Hungry Valley in Gorman to quad ride for the day! They had a blast and I got to sit and read my book! Ahhhhh! We need to go more often.

Tyler jumped on his dirt bike and took off! It is so fun to go on a mommy/son ride with him.
Cason Andrew was hilarious and scared me to death on his borrowed quad. (Thanks Bonnie & Traeger!)
