We got a PUPPY!!

Welcome to the family Rolf Von Stanton!! He arrived on Christmas day (Eric had been keeping him for 2 weeks, thank you!!). Needless to say the boys adore him (me too). He is the biggest cuddle bug ever and loves to chew. His favorite thing to chew is Miles. His arms look like a teenage girl with serious cutting issues. He is still adorable, and Miles is too. One good thing is he has definitely calmed my baby craving. I think puppies are harder than babies.

Miles is finally pure!! haha

Well Miles got baptised September 5th by his uncle Randy and confirmed by his uncle N8. Elam gave a awesome talk that he wrote all by himself. We all had a great and busy day. Not to many pictures cause we forgot to pull the camera out till the end of the day. We had lots of friends and family there, it was so nice to see everyone, especially those we don't get to see often enough! Miles constantly amazes me with his knowledge of the gospel and his faith. He has such a strong spirit for such a little guy, I love him so much. (Even his smart little mouth that gets him in so much trouble :)

Spring Break 2009

Well now that school is out for all of us I can finally put up some pictures. We went to New Mexico with our friends Angie & Graham and their 2 kids, Emerson and Atticus. We all drove in the same car (which surprisingly was not bad with 5 kids) and stayed at my best friend Kyle's campground in the Lincoln National Forrest, Camp Tall Pines. We all had a great time! We had cabins with all the amenities so it was like home in the middle of nowhere, we even had satellite TV! I think the kids loved the horses the most.

So we went out to dinner in Cloudcroft and the boys of course got in trouble (mainly Elam and Miles). I guess being the fine dining restaurant/bar that it was, it is customary to serve popcorn while you wait. I know we're used to chips and salsa but who am I to judge. Nevertheless they got it all over! I guess it is also customary to have the patrons clean up their messes! I loved it! They also ordered root beers which came in the bottles, and for some reason Elam got the bright idea to pour a sugar packet into it. (Kids don't try this at home) apparently, and to his delightful surprise, it makes the root beer foam and spew out all over. So then followed Miles, but I caught on before Jack could do it, Emerson of course wouldn't ever do this, Atti loved watching and wished he had a root beer so he could do this too. Good Times.

Tonight was pack night and Joel (my nephew) got his Arrow of Light award, yeah Joel!! He has graduated from cub scout to boy scout! Elam got a belt loop for marbles, which he earned at the scout fair a couple of weekends ago. There he also got to race in the San Diego 500! That is a pinewood derby race for all the scouts who won out of their pack from San Diego and Imperial Counties. He came in first place in the first round, the look of shock on his face was classic! He turned to me and Joel and said "I won" in disbelief. It was great! After a few more rounds he was out, but he wasn't too upset.

Little League Clean Up

Last weekend was Lemon Grove LL clean up day. The boys and Emerson used zip ties and tied down the screen on the fence, pulled weeds and messed around. Their first games are this week! So lots of pics to come!
