      I realize that it has been quite a while since I have posted anything and know that playing catch up would be crazy so I am just going to start fresh.  My name is Janis and I am married to Tony.  We have 4 amazing boys ranging in age from 10 to 3. Dallin our oldest just turned 10.  Weston, are 2nd, will be turning 8 in two weeks and has made the decision to be baptized   We are very excited for this upcoming event. Porter will be turning 6 this summer and Monson our 4th will be 4 later in the fall.   They keep our life crazy busy and we love every minute of it.  We are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and are very grateful for the blessings it brings into our lives.  I have been blessed to have the calling of Young Women's President which takes up a lot of my free time and Tony in a Ward missionary and is blessed to sometimes teach the Gospel Essentials class.  Tony works which allows me to be a stay at home mom.  I love being able to be here for my children even though there are times that I miss working outside the home..more due to the lack of adult interaction but I have wonderful and amazing neighbors who take up the slack in this area.. Our lives are busy with school, sports and family time. Are family loves hunting, boating, fishing, camping, spending time at the pool, and most outdoor activities. We are ready for summer when we can start camping and taking vacations.  I hope this brings you up to speed a little on our family.

1st week of school

Well the first week of school is over and now we officially back into the swing of things,(sort of). The boys love there new teachers and the fact that they get to see their friends everyday. I am glad because I was starting to get to my final strands of hair trying to find things for them to do. Poor Porter, he is having a hard time trying to figure out why he does not get to go with them to school, for instance, he wanted to ride with the boys up to school in the morning so I told him to hurry and get ready so we could go with them, well he was very fast and ran out the door before I was ready and he could not see the boys who were next door in neighbors driveway waiting so he left on his own. By the time I found/caught up with him he was almost at the school. I can't wait for preschool to start so that he can feel cool going to school.

Lake Powell trip July2011

I have decided that we at least have to have one Lake Powell trip per summer if not more. We packed up our stuff and had our first attempt this July sleeping on the beach instead of on the boat. It wasn't as bad as I imagined that it was going to be. The weather was great for the entire trip up until the last night when the wind and rain decided to show up, but that wasn't so bad either. All in all we had a great time.

Westons birthday party

So we had Westons 6 year old birthday party yesterday. He decided that he wanted a Power Ranger themed party, so that is what he got. We did races out side, had them each show off there best Power Ranger fighting poses, came inside and did stick the power ranger badge on the power rangers chest,(pin the tail on the donkey), hit the pinata, had cake and then watched a power ranger cartoon. Oh yea, we also opened presents that his friends brought him. It was a blast. I can't believe he is already 6, either he is growing way to fast, or I am getting way to old!!

Dallins first Pine Wood Derby

So Dallin had his first Pine Wood Derby. Tony and Dallin got all high tech and even had Grandpa help out. It was great. The night of the derby came and I had to remind Dallin that it did not matter who won or lost, only that it was important to have fun. He ended up winning first. I must say I was some what the proud Mama.

Attempt at a homemade Power Ranger Pinata

It sort of looks like a monster head, but Weston thinks it looks cool so that is all that matters!
