Abby- makes all of us HAPPY. As my older brother once said, "Everyone loves the baby"! Even though the baby is two, almost three. Abby has had some improvement on the potty training and we are feeling encouraged! She continues to say the cutest things that just make us want to squish her face and kiss her all over! She said, "Tub,Tub" for "bath tub" and "Abby Dabby - O" and "What you doing here?"

Camry Suzanna - O

Camry- is still getting compliments on her talk on Sunday! She got to go to the school this week and meet the teachers for Kindergarten and look at the classrooms she will be attending next year. She loved it and got some free play dough! I did not have time to take her home so she went to enrichment night with me where we had dinner together. When it was over and time to go home she said, "No, lets go somewhere else"! I think she was having as much fun as I was having.


Jane- is so much fun! She likes to have fun! Playing with friends and sisters! She has friends everywhere! Even in her imagination! Jane has a goal this month and that is to get a 100% on her chores. If she does she gets a "super, duper prize"! She is doing great and is on track! Two full weeks of not missing one day! She has definitely cinched up "I am a child of God" on the harp!

Harp, Harp, Harp

Kate-spelling, bike rideing, hair doing, sister, happy phenomenon! Kate has finished the entire harp book "Suzuki 1" and has earned an ice cream. She is looking foreward to going to Ogden this week so that after her lessons we can go to Sams Club to get a "Berry Sundae". We are "Berry" proud of her! (Cheezy Mom)


Kyle-finally got to go skiing for his birthday that was last October. It all worked out real well. We had just had one of the biggest snow storms of the season and Kyle got to capitolize on it. He took Parker Weese, Jake Holbrook, and Deven of course. Deven says that Kyle is a natural and can pretty much do what he wants on the slopes. Kyle said that at one point when they were bored they (he and Parker) would watch other skiiers and grade them. The person who got a ten was the guy who got the biggest crash at the end of the jump.


Jake-his braces aren't hurting anymore. He said, "Mom, I'm so used to them it's like they aren't even on!" Playing Lacrosse a lot! Admits he doesn't go to the stake dances for two reasons. There aren't any girls he wants to dance with and that he doesn't know how to dance. His dad will have to work with him on that.


Wendy- has been buying wheat, oats, rice, and other assorted item to get our home in order. Yikes! You know what, it is kinda fun! I have been focusing on getting a 3 month supply of food we always eat as suggested. I think it will take me four months to do it. Deven and I went to a couples dancing class on Saturday night. It was so much fun for me, and for Deven...he was bored. He had taken a couple of dance classes in college and was goofing arround a lot because he already knew everything. I wish it could have been said the same for his partner. I was trailing all night long. Deven did admit that he had a lot of fun too!


Deven- has told me that the economy is taking a toll and things aren't looking good for Smith Crane. He does say however that he feels peace about our situation and feels that all will work out for the best.
