March: Part Two
Ben loves taking the roller coaster shots. See that sweet little girl next to me? Ya, she can scream like no other sound I have ever heard!
Our little family, waiting for the shuttle. It was hard to keep them calm they were so excited!

I don' think I can call this a February activity but more an all winter activity. This was the girls 3rd year skiing and they get better each time we went. Brooklyn has gained alot of confidence and tries to go off jumps like Aunt Becca. Alex is getting more and more confidence and loved to play follow the leader. It is fun to have them liking it and we can't wait to hit the slopes again.
This is Princess Cancan playing in Alex's fire truck from school.
Alex turned 5 this past year and she is growing up so fast. She is Candace's biggest protector and tormentor. She is my biggest helper and messiest child. She waves to Ben each morning in our picture window until she can't see his truck and the first to hug him when he comes home at night. She is always ready to play with Brooklyn when she gets home and eager to hear about her day. Alex would rather fruit and veggies over candy or sweets. She would rather you play a game or read a book to her than buy her a present. One time she was in trouble for something and was having a time out in her room. Ben had gotten home from work and I told him to go and get her out but that it was my turn to have a time out in my room. Pretty soon here comes Alex with some lotion asking if I would like a foot rub. She is a great peacemaker and I hope learn something from having a child just like myself. We love this girl who loves life and wants to make others happy.

January: I had the best 30th Birthday ever!! (glad I will only have one) I flew to Vegas for a shopping trip with Heidi. Dan came and picked me up from my late flight because Heidi was supposedly not feeling well. When I got to their apartment all the lights were out with candles and balloons everywhere. That's when my Mom, Mickey and Becca jumped out to surprise me. We had talked about everyone meeting there, but had decided it couldn't work in everyones schedules. They made some sacrafices to come and I loved every minute of it! We do have pictures somewhere, I have seen them. They must be on someone elses camera. Just imagine the fun while I track down the pics.

Last year in a nutshell:
October: Brooklyn wanted her cousin Hunter to come for a sleepover to celebrate her birthday. We carved pumpkins and partied. I would post the pictures but for some reason my girls carved pumpkins with out their shirts on. (I know this won't surprise Jamie) We will try to keep our shirts on this year so I can post pictures. This is a Halloween 2009, just in time for this years pictures. WARNING: I believe in recycling costumes so you may see these again in 2010 :)
Brooklyn's Family Party: She decorated her own cake with Littlest Pet Shop. My girls love decorating their own cakes. Sometimes they are good and sometimes we all end up with root beer floats.
Our little BYU Cougar, Alex, got to go to her first BYU football game. She loved it and Ben said she was happy the whole time and enjoyed it. I asked her what she remembers most about going. She said "I ate a whole foot-long hot dog" (We took the girls to a UW football game last month and she was not into it, guess she knows her team. Plus they didn't have any foot-longs!) That's our Al.
This is Baby Candace and Chicky. We always go swimming when we go home. There is this place in Midway that boasts they have natural mineral bath. Kinda like Thermopolis with out the smell.
