This is what happens when boys are left to play! They filled up the Thomas the Train tent with all their toys, then took the tent off the pile...
Here's our veggie haul for the year. We canned 16 pints of carrots...made 3 quarts of spaghetti sauce, 6 quarts of salsa, and have the potatoes sitting in a box ready to be eaten.
Most mornings we wake up to find Ethan lining the counter with bowls. What do you think he's really trying to tell us???

It's been a while since we've made a post. It's about time for an update.

We have snow on the ground. It rained during General Conference this weekend, and snow all day today.

Cosette and Isaac are still very excited about school. They love going.

Ethan is starting to talk. The best thing he says is "horrible hair". It comes from a CD we listen to all the time...Songs of the Letter People. Mr. H has horrible hair.

Emma is enjoying teaching. It's a new challenge that she's facing head on.

Robert has a week-long Interpreting Workshop this next week and a couple trips to Boise right after that. He'll be busy.

Hilarious! That little Ethan is such a cutey patooty. I was thinking the other day that you hadn't posted in awhile, so this was fun to read. I love those veggies! I'm thinking of putting a garden in next year.

wonderful to see all the fun. Boys are so much fun. i love the bowls on the counter. Too cute.
Rob you look great too. All the vegies are such a treat. We couldn't even grow a garden here. The soil is solid rock. I miss the home grown vegies but not the canning.

Wow, your garden did great. Amazing what kids do too. We love and miss you all.
