Miracles Never Cease

Santa brought Ethan a puppy for Christmas... and it has been a wonderful experience to see him carry him all around the house.  The miracle is that Ethan struggles to go to bed by himself without someone laying down with him, and tonight he took his puppy and put himself down.  I peeked in on him a couple of times and at one point he had Will (puppy) in his lap and was reading him a book.  I checked back 20 minutes later and he had put Will back in his crate up on his bed, turned the light out and he and the puppy were both fast asleep.  Here's  hoping this is a tradition in the making :)

Viking Football 2009 (Mitch)

Mitch had a great season.
Now I can't tell you all the details
because I didn't make it to every game,
but his team improved form last year
and he LOVES the game so what more
can a mother ask for...
except for no injuries.
So prepare for a long post
as I share a few highlight with you.

I love this photo for several reasons.
The first being that Coach Shamo was one
of their coaches and father of the boy's face that you can see.
Well he died of a heart attack after their first game.
Very the team wore wristbands everygame honoring him.
It really ended bringing the team together.

Can you guess who they might be?Happy Birthday you two!
I love you both...

Moving Up

So I am a little behind in posting,
so I am going to rewind back a few months to
significant events.
1) Josh received his wolf badge
and I am no longer a den leader after 3 yrs2) Mitchell received his arrow of light and his all 21 award
Ben is his leader working with the 11 yr old scouts.
They are both way excited!
(Me too - means less scout work for me!!)
I am Proud of both of them.Way to go boys. Only one more boy to begin, Thankfully I have a few years!

Megan is a mean soccer player
Every season she gets better and better!Here she is with a couple of the BYU girl soccer team.
She loves going to events with them and attending their home games.
Which thanks to Ben grabbing Free ticket has been a fun activity
Meg playing forward. She is a monster on the field.

And with those Hutchins' legs of hers she is quick.
One of her coaches a few years back nick-named her LEGS!
Love this Girl!!

Cousin Roger

So cousin Roger is out here at BYU
this year and we are loving
having him close by!We enjoy hanging out in his dorm room
(Haley and I snuck in)
Sunday afternoon naps on the couch

A little light (not) wrestling

Free rides, and laughs

And watching and admiring his patriotism
as he posts the Colors before a game.
It's good to have family around!

our own Cabanna boy!
I've always wanted one of those!Sweet Haley
Mitch and cousins Ty and Mark
Ethan on the Jungle Gym Slides
These were my favorites
Mitch going down the insane slide that goes straight down!

Mitch loved this slide
he and his cousin Mark hold the park record

We all had a wonderful sunfilled day.
Thank you everyone!
