Our pup Molly is a pup no more. She turns 12 this year. We took her to the vet a few weeks ago to get some fatty tumors removed, and her teeth cleaned. The Dr noticed some congestion and found that her heart is enlarged.
She's on heart medicine now. It seems like just yesterday she was our tiny puppy, chewing the carpet, eating our clothes, and anything she could get her tiny teeth on.
She has been a constant in our quickly changing lives. She has put up with all the babies coming into our house, and she lets them lay on her, wrestle her, and tug her ears with nary a snap. She has been amazing with them. She loves her food more than she loves anything. She lets me know when it's dinner time, and she's enjoying her pills now because we wrap them in lunchmeat.
She makes me laugh, and she makes me crazy. Turn your back for a second and she's on the table eating off your plate. As naughty as she can be she's made herself an integral part of our lives. We will be making her happy and comfortable for the rest of her life.

Christmas was a blast! The kids got all they asked for and more. But three days after Christmas my friend Jennifer and I were off to Salt Lake for a softball workshop at the University of Utah. Oh my heck!!!! Two moms and six kids is not remotely easy. I'm talking an insanely good time.
The girls haven't picked up their mitts since August and they were psyched to jump back into it. U of U has a great program for the girls to get some new workout tips, and to work on skill building. They got a lot out of it. Don't you love Clint and Dalton watching a movie in the background. The little kids were such troopers, being hauled all over town, and sitting at the training waiting for their sisters.
Softball and snow. Who would think this would happen. Katie hopes to be a future Ute! And looking around their campus I'd love her to go here too!
We got home on the 30th and while we had a day to recuperate it wasn't enough time to rest up for the long New Years Eve bash. Even I was in bed by 9! Katie and Rick made it till midnight by watching Star Wars. Clint passed out around 11.
School starts next week and while I am sad to have to get properly dressed each day, I am excited to see my students and get on with the rest of the year. After all...summer vacation is only 5 short months away! WOOT!!!

Clint wants the Millennium Falcon with Nerf darts
Abby wants a BIG bow for her hair.
Katie doesn't know what she wants but I sure hope she figures it out soon! Our school puts on a breakfast with Santa event every year. This year was particularly fun. For one Rick didn't have to help cook for the event. He enjoyed getting to spend the time with us rather than watch from the kitchen. For another my friend Shonna put together a super fun event, complete with a candy bar...which during set up I may have been the unofficial taste tester.
There were crafts to do which was lots of fun, and now the tree has a few new ornaments!
Breakfast was wonderful, eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon, and a coffee, hot chocolate, and juice bar (aren't we fancy?!?!)
Abby partook in both juice and chocolate milk, and ate her weight in scrambled eggs.
It was a great day to catch up with friends, young and old. There were kids I taught 6 years ago who came back to volunteer as elves for the event, or who came with their parents and siblings. There were school and church families who we rarely see, and we were able to catch up tell stories, laugh, and reminisce. I am proud to be a part of such a wonderful community of people, and to call this place my home!

She's been a joy to watch grow. She loves adventure, and has to be one of the funniest people I know.
She has an insane love for sweets. She takes after her daddy that way.
Happy Birthday Katie!!! We love you to the moon and back. You are a bright joy in our lives, and we can't believe 10 years has already gone by!!!
Mommy and Daddy
