Baby, It's Cold Outside!

It's been almost two and a half weeks since a big snow storm came and left us some fun snow to play in. Snow usualy doesn't stick around this long here in Taylor, but it's been SO cold there was still just enough to play in with cousins today.

Here are some pics of the fun we've been having :

 These are pictures of  Adam and the kids in the back yard with the Ranger.

This is a hill by our house. We had fun here with the cousins!
Macey and Sarah
Braunsen and Greaden

I hate the snow (too cold, and wet) But, even I had some fun in it!!!

Out With The Old.....

It's time to say Farewell to 2010 and to ring in 2011.
We had another wonderful year filled with many blessings which we are so very thankful for.
Adam has been able to continue to do tractor work along with the auto part delivery route. He is still working with the deacons in the Y.M. Presidency and continues to be the BEST dad and Father in the world.
I was able to start an exciting new chapter in my life this year. I now sell vintage clothing, accessories and housewares in my TWO shops on the Internet. I love Treasure hunting at the local thrift shops, and the extra little income has really blessed our family. I continue to serve in the ward primary presidency and LOVE IT!!
I also competed in a triathlon sprint this year and discovered that I may have a little bit of athlete in me after all.
Eliza is still a bundle of energy. She took some skateboarding lessons in the spring, and played Soccer in the fall. She is becoming a great little reader and brings so much joy and laughter into our home. We love our  little firecracker Eliza!
Sarah started taking violin lessons this year and is practicing so that one day she can play as well as  uncle Travis and uncle Richard. She Loves school and is learning so much. She is as sweet as ever, and warms our hearts with her love and smiles.
Caleb Is becoming quite the bike rider.Almost every day he can be seen trying new jumps and tricks on his bike. Caleb also played soccer this past fall and definitely wants to play again next year. He is excelling in school, and  learned all 13 Articles of Faith this year. We are so grateful that he's part of our eternal family.
As a family we finished reading the Book Of Mormon all the way through and celebrated with a party!
We welcomed Aunt Ashley into the family, as well as several new nieces and nephews.
We  have set some new goals for ourselves individually and as a family and look foreword to all that 2011 has to offer.

Snowed In

My Sister Lydia and her family came up for a quick visit  to pick up one of these adorable FREE puppies from our neighbor.

They picked this little sweet girl and named her Tippers (for the white tip on the end of her tail).

     Shortly after this picture was taken, it started snowing....A LOT!!!
In fact, it snowed so much that they got Snowed in. All the roads going in and out of town were closed.
So, their quick trip became a little bit long trip and so.... we played A LOT!
Thanks for coming Hulses! We had a blast!
