Take me away...

For the past 5 years or so I have been able to attend a scrapbook retreat for conference weekend. Every year I look forward to it! I get time to focus on preserving my family's history while listening to the servants of God, and enjoying times with dear friends.

for the second year in a row, we attended a great retreat in Colorado Springs, at My Scrapbook Retreat. It was a special treat to have one of my dearest friends, Malinda even come all the way from Idaho to go with us. We had a great weekend and I got Cooper's baby scrapbook almost all finished. I am already looking forward to next year.

Jog-a-thon 2011

Every year as the school's fundraiser the kids get to participate in the Jog-a-thon. The students (and some teachers) did their best running laps and collecting pledges to donate to the school. Peyton was super excited to get to run in it this year now that she is in Kindergarten. And of course, Cooper loved cheering his older sisters and brother on. And eating a popsicle afterward. :)

Thanks to all our family who donated!

Morgan is 10!

Blink. And my first baby is 10 years old. It happened so fast!

We kept Morgan's birthday pretty low-key; pizza, cake, wii games, and a movie. She had about 10 friends over and then a few of the girls were able to spend the night. I enjoyed watching her be around her friends and, as a parent, I am glad she has made some good choices as far as friends.

As Morgan turns 10...
Her best friends are: Kendall, Tiffany, Hunter, and Zach.
She loves playing four square, volleyball, and basketball.
She participates in choir, Mesa, and GT at school.
She thinks Activity Days at church is pretty fun.
She gets really good grades.
She is addicted to computer and video games.
She is a great big sister, especially to Cooper.
She has a developing sense of humor and has tons of personality.

We love her and is so grateful she is in our family! Happy 10th birthday, Morgan!
