Neil 15th Birthday

Here is Neil blowing out those 15 candles on his "money" cake. You can see Austin helping him blow!
Neil got a new play kitchen for his birthday...not really! I bought it to go down into the playroom for the grandchildren. However, Neil (and Cade) had fun putting it together. We got up into the attic and found the play dishes and pretend food that Nichole had in her play kitchen. So the kids had fun showing it all to Austin on Saturday.

Neil requested french toast and bacon for his breakfast. We had Jimmy John sandwiches and lots of other food for lunch while watching the BYU vs. Wyoming game. We had birthday cake later in the afternoon. Then Neil wanted more than anything to go eat dinner at his favorite place...Outback Steakhouse. We all had a fun day! We wish Chad, Melinda, Mikel, Troy & Amy could have been here too. Well, we wish all of our friends & family could be here! :)

BYU Fans & Wild Play with Uncle Cade

Here are a couple of the BYU fans here at the house on Saturday! It was such an exciting game...we loved it...BYU winning by 1 point with 2 seconds left in the game. That blocked kick was amazing! Mikell & Austin had fun playing together. I tried really hard to get photos of the 3 grandchildren together and it was just about impossible to get a good photo.
Here is the video that Chad & Melinda have been waiting for. Sorry it took me so long. Also, it takes awhile to get videos downloaded on my dumb computer. Enjoy!!!

Mikell comes to Visit Grandma & Grandpa

Mikell is visiting Grandma & Granpa this week while Chad & Melinda are in Orlando for a vacation. They are using the Christmas present Marriott Week. We are having so much fun with Mikell. Here she is having breakfast. Melinda told us that she loves to dip her food in...dip. So here she is with some waffle pieces (Grandpa made for her) and she is dipping them into her little pile of syrup on the table. So cute! Todd & Rakel came over to watch the BYU vs. Washington game and so afterwards we had a little swimming party, and Mikell loved the water, but the pool was a little cold, so they mostly stayed in the hot tub.
I have more photos and some video but it is getting late and I need my "beauty sleep" and so look for more photos to come soon!

The Bathroom is finally finished!

It has been a lot of work and several months but finally the downstairs bathroom is finished! Brent, Neil & Cade tore the room apart & remodeled the cabinets. We hired Travis Read to laquer the cabinets for us and then he came back and painted the room for with mildew & mold resistant paint. We hired Curtis Peters to do all of the tile.

We love all of the tile...hopefully it will be much easier to keep clean

I love the new towel hooks but the boys just need to learn how to hang them properly. We love the new shower door also.

By the way, Melinda, you are probably looking for photos of Mikell (since we are babysitting this week), look back again soon and I will add those!
