Memories...February and March

February: All I got is this blurry pic of Braden playing in a OJHS concert. 


1) Chelsie went on a bike ride down by Utah Lake and a couple pointed out 3 bald eagles in the trees. 

2) Mikaela's birthday! Here she is opening up one of her presents. Chelsie's great wrapping job. Happy 23 Mikaela!

3) Celebrating Veronica's birthday with her at Kneaders

Our poor spare tire. This was after we replaced our other tire which looked just as bad or worse. Marc and I crashed into the curb late one December night after Marc swerved, and skidded and crashed  when 8 deer (Santa's reindeer?) ran in front of us on State Street. We missed the deer thankfully!

Cookie making!

Thanksgiving happened . Here is a pic from one of the tables. Our family is at the end. Lots of family was there and it was great! Brian and Emma were there. Adam and his family came in from South Dakota.  Afterwards, we went for a drive in Middle canyon and I attempted to take pictures of the deer we saw.
