The kids had fun earning money by doing crazy exercises- Tristin jump roped for ever trying to earn his popcorn at the hockey game. G-pa Brent is so silly!
We were thrilled to have G-ma & G-pa come to visit this past weekend. We had so much fun together- THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!! We love you SOOOO much!

You just have to know my step dad to understand his silly sence of humor, but for the past 25 years, we have been performing the wildest stunts, tricks, performances
& services to earn money. I could write a book on all the crazy things we have agreed to over the years just to earn a dollar. So when he told the kids they could earn some $ by standing in the corner for an obsene amount of time, they were up for the challenge. The girls made it several minutes and each earned a dollar, and Tristin stood for 15 minutes I think and won $ 4.00! To them they were rich, to us, another crazy thing to sit back and watch! Love you G-pa!

For G-pa's birthday the boys went out to a hockey game Saturday night and HAD A BLAST!!! I think Tristin was just happy to be around guys for a few hours instaed of all the girls. Earlier, Brent & Trav went to watch the BSU game and later Mom & I went to a few thrift stores and looked around. We decorated the tree and had fun looking through all the ornaments G-ma had bought the kids over the years!

Every time G-ma & G-pa come, they have the kids stay 1 night at the hotel with them- and THEY LOVE IT!!! The highlight is walking down to the vending machine and buying yummy treats to then take back to the room and eat in bed! I stayed awhile and watched TV and layed on the bed with G-ma. We went out to Panda Express for dinner earlier while the boys went to the Steelhead's hockey game!

My Step Dad, Brent, loves to buy presents for the kids when he comes to visit. One year he bought a life size tigar, one year a talking parrot named Billy, and this year a crazy singing dog. (He bought other normal present too, like a painting set for Daisy, A large fairy dolly for Grace and a Chess set for Tristin & little Christmas trees for each of the kids rooms!) They spoiled us too, all of which we are VERY thankful for!!!
