Happy New Year!
We had a wonderful New Year with family in Idaho! Our oldest nephew is heading to Italy on his mission, so we trekked up to our relatives to hear his farewell. We brought in the New Year dancing with the Wii, reading Dave Barry, and watching movies. Whitney went with her cousin to the local stake dance and had a blast! Happy New Year everyone!
Our family loves travel, hiking, camping, birding, reading alound,
biking and playing games together. We currently live in Utah with our 5 children.
Whitney, 17 is a serious student and award winning needle felter. Steve L. is 15 and a Boy Scout. He is a Lego enthusiast, a veracious reader, and a great actor and public speaker.
