Brielle ~ TaVaci School of Performing Arts

Brielle is going to start a performing arts school called TaVaci School of Performing Arts - a gal from our ward runs it out of her home on a weekly basis - she will be able to learn singing, dancing, and acting with girls her age. She will be able to perform in a recital two times a year on a real stage somewhere in the Tri-Cities. She is really excited to start in February!

Brielle & Mikenna

Brielle & Mikenna eating birthday cake together at Toby's birthday. I am thankful they are so close and have one another. There is nothing like having a sister for a friend!

Jaron ~ 2 less teeth

Jaron had the last two of his baby teeth pulled today. They had a hard time coming out on their own. Now his last two adult teeth can come down without any additional crowding. Once they come down his orthodontist will put braces on those two...and another step closer to a straight teeth!
I think the drugs they gave him made him a little loopy...he was acting silly.

Mandy's 36th B-day!

I am officially 36 years old...weird! The passage of time is not my favorite...I am a very blessed girl though. Love my friends and family and the gospel. I am grateful for a Savior that knows me, loves me, comforts me and supports me through the ups and downs of life.
I love my kids and husband. They are my everything! They bless me in so many ways. I am excited to see what this year brings!
