Snow Play

Ry has been begging to play in the snow and I told him he could when I got done working but when I was done brudder and udder brudder (E and Arch) were not home to play with him. I suited him up and let him loose all by himself, he was only out there for 10 minutes in the 12 degree weather. Hank (the dog) was wishing he was out there with him too and kept pawing at the sliding glass door.

Christmas pictures

Christmas Eve morning Eric and the boys had a mini donut eating contest,there was lots of coughing and gaggin, who knew those little donuts are so dry?!? It was a 3 way win Eric, Ethan and Archer won with Ryder coming in a not so close 4th place.

We had a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner at Sostanza (very nice place here in T) then drove around town to look at the lights.

Christmas morning the troops woke up around 6:30 but we had to wait until 7is for Aunt Angie and Grandma and Grandpa to get to our house. Once they had arrived the festivities began!

Last year Eric and I decided to scale back on how many gift the kids got (one year we went way over board and half of the stuff they received never got played with). They each got 3 presents from Santa and we got 2 wii games as a family, the grown-ups gave each other much needed items of clothing.

I love Christmas and I love spending time with my family!

Provo Tabernacle :(

The Provo Tabenacle caught on fire in the wee hours of the morning and it is a total loss. I was looking at pictures on the news and got teary eyed, this building was so beautiful. I am greatful that I was able to visit this place at least once to be able to appreciate what a great loss it will be.

Together again

This weekend was so great! We had our family Christmas party and then a Homecoming party for my aunt and uncle who just returned home from their mission in Argentina.
My cousins Marianne and Dana and I work hard every year for the family Christmas party and we weren't sure what kind of turn out we were going to have this year. We were surprised at how many Aunt, Uncles, cousins and friends showed up!
All of my dad's sibling and spouses were there! It was so great to see everyone!

The annual pinata is always a big hit with the kids!

anxiously anticipating the rain of candy

I couldn't resist posting this picture of "adult braces girl" with chocolate in her braces :}

Archer lost one of his top front teeth today.....It makes me very sad that he is going to grow a big huge jagged tooth in its place, oh well, he has to grow up sometime.

Delivery from Great Grandpa

We received a package from Eric's Grandpa and Grandma today. It was a load of books all about cowboys, airplanes, soldiers, knights and speed kings. Ethan has been pouring over them for hours now.

Fam Reunion 2010

Every year the Kroff family has a reunion up at the Ophir campgroud. It is always a blast and this year was no exception. There were very few who could attent this year so we had to keep our selves busy. We borrowed a 4 wheeler and took amazing rides up into the cayon. The campground also added a mini zip line and that was really fun. My wonderful cousins had us play "minute to win it" and that was so funny, my niece ripped the crotch out of her pants trying to finish one of the challenges... wish I had a picture of that.. darn!
Most of all it is just great to be able to sit back and relax and have fun with family.

Zoo fun

Ryder love bugs.. this big spider didn't freek him out at all!

We were smart this year and got to the zoo at 9:30am, the parking lot wasn't even half full and all of the animals were out and active.
