February 2018

The most exciting thing that happened in February was that Chelsie came home!!!

Valentine's Day was the day and it was a very happy reunion. We went and picked her up at the airport, had dinner and brought her home. So good to have her home!

However, for her it was definitely an adjustment.  After her "exit" interview with President Jensen he said that Chelsie didn't just go "through a mission". The mission went through her and changed her for the better.

Memories..April 2018

Lots of excitement in April at the Minor House!

Braden was busy with 2 frisbee teams and track.

His Orem Jr. High team..undefeated!!!!

Here he is at Alpine Days. He's in the middle.

He did several events for 2 days. Here is in front

It was also his birthday on the 22nd. He turned 15.

Jaycie had a birthday too. April 13th she turned 13. She got her 1st phone and she was pretty happy about that.

Alyssa turned 19 this month and moved back home. 

Here she is with roommate, Celine! Alyssa just moved into Heritage at the semester and met Celine. They were meant to be roomies!

Mikaela did not have a birthday this month, but she got engaged!!!! On April 2nd (Not 1st LOL) Isaac proposed to her and she said "Yes!". August 17th the big day. Here they are after they announced to us as well as another cute pic of the love birds.

Also, Spring Break!  We didn't do a  whole lot, which the kids liked. We went to the Jordan River Temple House, Hiked the Hot Pots,  and the kids had a campout in the backyard. Here are pics at the Hot Pots.

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!
