One Day I Will Laugh About This...

That's permanent marker folks. And this wasn't the only place we found it either. It was all along the walls in the hallway, on our front door, on our kitchen cabinets, & on our fridge. Luckily, Mark and I were able to get the marker off of the areas that were "public" but his room is the worst of it for sure. I'm pretty sure the only answer is to paint the walls at this point. Hopefully, this is the last we will see of Owen's artwork on our walls. Sadly, I am afraid this isn't the end....

Christmas Time 2011

Christmas Time was fun this year, as always. We did our usual traditions of visiting the lights at Temple Square, the annual Parker Christmas Eve Party, and then of course the Feast at the McKoy's on Christmas Day. This year was extra special for me since I was the lucky winner of the Pickle! Go me :-) I told Mark I would think about sharing my prize with him...

Santa was extra nice this year. He brought our family a fish tank filled with lots of awesome tropical freshwater fish. The kids were pretty excited!! Merry Christmas to everyone & Happy New Year!

Mark's Bday

Mark turned 29. Unfortunately, both he and I were violently ill on his birthday with the flu so neither of us really felt like celebrating. Owen, however; could not stand the fact of not making a birthday cake for his dad on his birthday. So, I managed to keep the vomit down and help Owen make this cake. Then we sang happy birthday and the kids happily enjoyed the cake while Mark and I cuddled up with blankets and tissues in the next room. Happy Birthday, Mark! I love you and can't believe you are only a year away from being 3-0!!!! It's pretty weird. You don't look one day over 28 :-)

Thanksgiving 2011

It was another fun year at the Bear Lake cabin with the Ricks' family for Thanksgiving. We were lucky enough to have the Fischer's in town which always makes Owen's day since he loves spending time with his cousin, Treyvan (as you can see below). Good food, good company, what could be  better!!

Kid Pictures 2011

My favorites from the professional pictures I had done this year. Ages 3&2. Mollee was terrible at this shoot so we are lucky that we got any good ones at all!!

Las Vegas Ragnar

Mark & I ran the Las Vegas Ragnar along with Jay, Cathy, Michelle, Ashley, Jami, Jon, and four friends: Spencer, Shelynn, Aaron, & Carrie.  Was it fun? Yes. Was it awful? Yes. Would I do it again? Yes. These pictures are out of order, but they are a good summary of our experience. Ragnar 2011 - definitely an experience I will not soon forget!!! Oh, and yes, our team name was Better From Behind.
