Darron found a bunch of pictures that were on our external hard drive. I thought I would put this on the blog. I can't believe how time flies! This is when we lived out in GA a few years ago. How fun it is to reminisce!

First Day of School 2010-2011

First day of school! First Day of School! I feel like we have great teachers this year for Ashlee and Zachary. They woke up before I did. I could hear them singing to ABC, 123 by Micheal Jackson. I made them blueberry pancakes with their favorite home aide syrup. I took them to their classroom, gave them a hug, and that was that! I can't believe another year is starting. They both are excited though and ready to conquer the world! Michelle and I are headed out the door right now to go pick them up and I am soooo excited to see how it went.

Around 600 B.C. When Lehi left Jerusalem, the rest of the world was…

The first polo game was recorded in north Persia about this time.

The nomadic Scythians bordered the Hallstatt Culture in the East. They introduced to the Celts the custom of wearing trousers.

Aesop said: "We hang the petty thieves, but appoint the great ones to public office."

Analysis of pottery from this time indicated that Mayans made cocoa drinks as early as this time.

Turquoise was first mined in the American southwest about this time and began to show up in Mesoamerica.

The first horse race on record was in the Olympic Games of Greece and the first prize was a "woman of well-rounded domestic skills."

Provo and Benjamin 5K

Since Amy and Travis have been visiting from Georgia, we have been able to run in a couple races with Stephen (my very fast nephew). I get very nervous before the game, and the fist mile is always a killer, but I love coming across that finish line. I have finished in the 26th minute in both races. Ashlee and Zachary ran the Kids K's and won 1st and 2nd in their races. Below are a few of the pictures taken. To see ALL the pics of the races CLICK HERE.

Christmas Morning 2010

I am so glad the didn't wake up at 2am like they did last year. This time it was more like 8am. Ashlee was delighted to find her very own digital camera and a bunch of horse stuff, clothes, and Bakugons, and some Wii games.

Zachary thought for sure that for sure that Santa would forget about the Bakugons. He was sooo excited to see them on Christmas morning. He also was suprised to find a bike, skate board, and some Wii games.

Michelle was LOVING every second of whatever was going on. And I don't know what Chloe the dog thought.

Darron is the king of KSL classifieds. He has bought all of his fun toys off ksl. Its almost a hobby for him. These were our latest deal we found for the kids. They weren't working when we picked them up, but D did some fine tuning and now they work like they are brand new. The kids LOVE to ride. The mom just lets the dad watch them, becasuse she is a nervous wreck when they are zooming around in the snow.

Puzzle Time

This is the 1000 puzzle that we did this year at Christmas time. Darron likes to take the credit for it.. but we all worked hard on it. Unfortunately we couldn't find that last piece. Oh well, it was still a lot of fun.

Michelle and the Chair

Michelle climbed up on the chair while we were putting a puzzle together. As you can see, she thinks she is as big as her brother and sister. What a cutie!
