Dance Class

Daemien started Tap dancing yesterday. He is only 2 1/2. The dance teacher said she would evaluate him and let us know if he was ready to start. The instructor said usually they don't start class until the age of 3. So, Stephanie, Aleahna, and I took him to class. There were 2 girls and Daemien. She had the blind closed so I could not take pictures of him. I could see through the cracks in the blind. He was following directions and The smile on his face was PRICELESS! There was a empty room across from Daemiens class. We could here the music the instructor was playing. Aleahna went into the empty room and started to Dance. She's a natural! You can see in the Pictures that she really enjoyed that room. When the class was over Daemien walked out with a picture of a crab. He learned how to crab walk! I am impressed he can do this! He had the biggest smile on his face! Why didn't I take a Picture! I did video him though! It was fun. We are very blessed too. The Dance Instructor is our old Neighbor. She gave Daemien and Aleahna Free dance lessons for LIFE! We only have to pay for the shoes, costumes, and competition Fees. I sure we won't be in any competitions for a while. I was glad Stephanie went with us. I hope she remembers all the good times she had when I too her to the same studio for Dance Class. Oh! the memories it brings!

Travis and His Senior Year!

Lowell is the top picture and we just got him a new hair cut.
Travis is the bottom picture on the left. His friend Aaron is on the right.

This is Travis's Last year of High School. It has been one of my traditions to take a picture of him on the first day of school! This year both Travis and Lowell refuse to let me take there Picture so I will post the most recent pictures that I took of them. Time flies by fast when you are raising children. I remember the first day he started school. He sure has turned out to be a great person. He is very caring and I Love how both of my boys help care for Aleahna and Daemien. We are blessed this year to have seminary in our home. I love the spirit that it brings. I also love waking up to a clean house every morning. Brother Perrington teaches the class and the boys seem to enjoy it!

Zoo days...

We went to the zoo and had a fun day with our friends!

Cory off to Iraq

I am really sorry that my pictures are so dark. My nephew cory is off to Iraq. I am so proud of him! Serving our country. He has always wanted to be a soldier from a very young age. We wish him the best! Pray that he will return home safely.

Spicer's Orchard

We had an very fun day at the orchard with My boys, My grandchildren, My Nephew, and The Laker boys. We Picked raspberries and I think we ate more than we Picked. The little ones just loved getting the berries. We went on a Hay ride to pick the apples and The little ones LOVED the tractor ride! It was so cute watching them pick apples off the trees. Each one of them would show me that they had the biggest Apple! We went inside the store and bought Cinnamon Doughnuts that they just made. Still warm in the bag. Oh! they tasted so good. The apple cider was delicious! I love the fall. The trees are just starting to change we saw some trees with Orange and Yellow leaves. Can't wait to see them in full bloom.


It seems to be the new trend in High School to have a Mowhawk. Like everyone else my son decides he needs one. Here's a picture of Travis with his friend Aaron. Daemien wanted a mowhawk but I just said " No"
