Highlights of 2010....a little late

I'm putting this one first because it's been a HUGE major deal. Dallin FINALLY decided to try out the potty. Not his little training potty....to get it dirty would be just unheard or! But he's finally decided that he can pee and poo in the toilet like a big boy. We've tried for over a year and he finally got it. The reward: a Buzz Lightyear action toy. Well worth it!

We bought another new 4wheeler, so any chance Chris gets he's out pulling the kids on tubes or going for chilly rides in the snow.

Ryan had a sleep test done in the hospital in Pueblo, after which his doctor decided it would be a good idea to have his tonsils and adenoids removed. They did that in April, and Ryan is a new kids now! He has started filling out and gaining weight and looks so much better.

Bailey finished her 2nd year in 4H and Sariah finished her 1st. They both worked really hard and did awesome at the Tri-County Fair in August, Sariah bringing home 1st place and Bailey 3rd place.

We had a very successful tomato garden this year...our first since moving to Colorado. However, we found 6 of these nasty giant worms....known as Tomato Horn Worms. The kids were so excited to take them to school for show and tell. YUCK!

We had a mini high school reunion. Kelly (left) and I actually live 10 minutes from each other and serve in the Relief Society together, but Crystal (center) lives in New Jersey, so it's not often that the three of us get together and reminisce. The kids had a blast too, but I feel aged just looking at my big kids next to their little ones.

Ryan FINALLY decided to try riding his bike without training wheels, which was a pre-requisite to getting to try the motorcycle. He was so excited to finally be able to get on the motorcycle and go, go, go!

My sister (Connie) and her hubby went to the temple in September to be sealed to the fourth of their adopted kids, and we were able to be there. This picture has 13 of my parents 16 grandkids. Taking a picture in front of the font has sort of become tradition too.

And I'm BRACE FREE! Yay!
