THANK YOU!Thanks to all who took time out of their busy Holiday schedules to party with us! Here are some more pics, Enjoy....

Next, it was a drive to Spanish Fork for the first Christmas party of the Year. We had a ton of good soups and desserts. The boys played some football and Trevin even got to join in, which he loved!
Trevin wasn't sure if this was ok or not, he hung to Gage for a while, then worked up the courage to get a little closer...
Merry Christmas, I hope that everyone enjoys all the family together time you get during the Holidays!
Oh yeah, more BIG NEWS-There is a New addition to the family... MIKE! Sierra got engaged on Saturday Night! CONGRATS!

The lastest stats are 1 lb. 3 oz. and about 10-11 inches long.
I had my targeted (4-D) ultrasound this morning... I was amazed the first time time I saw this kind of picture so I wanted to share them... This is our little GIRL!
She slept through the whole thing, even though the Tech tried really hard to wake her up.
Waving Hello to all her family and friends that she will meet in a few months.
We are way excited to be having a girl-It will be a big change! I'll have to figure out how to do the cutsie bows and dresses...Gage isn't sure that he will know how to treat a girl but I think he'll do just fine! Until Next time... Happy Thanksgiving!

Grandma played the "table drum" with Trevin and taught him how to make new sounds with his lips! We had a great time!

He loved his hat and his gun! If only he could move a little easier in those pants, but it's always worth the cute wrangler butt!

Baby #2's checkup this week went well too. About a half a pound and about 5 inches long... and the news we've been waiting to hear.. It's a BOY! Now we can start coming up with names.
One the home front things are good. Gage has been working hard to get the sprinklers in, but the snow slowed him down for the time being. Trevin is very active and learned this week how to open drawers and swing doors open and closed. He has caught his fingers a couple of times but that hasn't slowed him down. I am just trying to enjoy life and get through the tedious parts. Trevin and I try not to stay couped up in the house all day, walks to Lindsay's or the Pond, Lunch with Casie, or grocery shopping. I've decided to adopt Elder Worthlin's motto. "Come what may and love it." So even on the rough days I look back and decide it was still a good day!

The yard has been the never ending project at our house...Between helping out in other peoples' yards, work, and church callings it got put on the back burner for a while. Now with only a few weeks left to get grass in... it's priority number one.
So, when planning the back yard we decided that we would pour cement before putting in the grass so we wouldn't have to drive/haul cement across our new lawn. Thanks to many hands and many hours of work step one is complete.
First came the mow strips and cementing under the dreaded air conditioner. I'm sure the boys hated it, but I thought they were very creative Jimmy rigging the air conditioner with the tractor. And I appreciated getting to keep the house cool.
Trevin loved every minute of it.. he loves watching the boys work (especially with the tractors).
He would sit and watch them for hours... and he did.
Next was leveling dirt and forming the shed pad and patio... another couple nights of working into the dark.
He would sit by the back door for hours and not move. I'm sure he was afraid he was gunna miss something if he looked away for a second.

Here's one that takes a little more time and costs a little more, real parmesan cheese, half-and-half, asparagus and things like that. So we don't get to have it that often but when we do it's great. Even better, Gage loves to help cook this one so I love having it.
3/4 - 1 lb. Penne pasta
1 lb. Asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
12-15 slices Turkey Bacon, cut into small squares
1 1/4 cups Fat-free half-and-half
3 Egg yolks
1/2 tsp Dried Basil
1/4 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp Black Pepper
1/8 tsp Ground nutmeg
1/3 cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
1. Cook pasta in lightly salted water following package directions. Add Asparagus to pasta for last 4 minutes of cooking time. Drain and keep warm. (To trim asparagus take a stalk hold at each end and bend, it has a natural breaking point. When it breaks keep the spiky end.)
2. While pasta is cooking, place bacon in a medium size skillet and cook over medium-high heat, about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until slightly browned and crisp. Drain any excess grease.
3. In a small sauce pan, whisk half-and-half and egg yolks. Cook over medium heat, about 8 minutes, whisking CONSTANTLY. After the 8 minutes, take off heat and stir in basil, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
4. Add bacon to cooked pasta and asparagus. Stir in creamy egg mixture. Stir in 1/3 cup grated Parmesan Cheese.
5. Spoon pasta onto serving dish and sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese on each serving. Enjoy!
Just a note, last time I left out the asparagus and it still tasted great.

Next it was time Trevin got a hair cut. I cut his hair every now and then but this time he finally had enough to use the clippers. So I held Trevin and Dad got to work. Here are a few before and after shots!
We got a few funny looks when we went to run arrands but it was fun. We only let him keep the mohawk for about a day and a half. Now his hair is butched and I think he looks bald, hopefully it will grow fast. (the first picture with the Jeeps shows his butch cut).

Joni is a pro at wakeboarding!
Treving thought the dirt tasted better than his bottle!
Nate, Joni, and Kennedi hanging out on the boat. I'm pretty sure Kennedi didn't like her life jacket. ;) but I thought she looked cute!
Gage taught me how to drive the boat and then he was in the water for his turn wakeboarding. I was so nervous. I had the hardest time keeping the boat at a steady pace ( I never actually mastered that skill). I thought I was gunna run Gage over every time I went to get the rope back to him. But it all worked out, Gage and the boat stayed in one piece and I was more than ready to give the wheel back to Gage!
It was a quick trip, but packed full of fun...Everyone came back in one piece... It is always fun to get together and vacation with family, but I have to admit I can't wait until the next time until when I'm not in charge!
Thanks to the Crabtrees for letting us use the trailors! You're the best!

Brinlee made sure we all knew when it was our turn... "Brinlee two turns, then cass two turns, and kenna two turns" She made sure she got us up for our turns if we weren't paying attention.
