    TWINS! I love my HAPPY FAMILY. and my fav food right now:

    more wrestling in this house:

    Tiago enjoying the tiny bit of snow. and Sunday tickles from Dad.

    Benji gets all of his school work done on his own! He checks his grades and makes sure he is getting A’s – He’s a great 7th grader!

    What happened to my baby??? Tiago is SO BIG now! He understands everything and just plays hard all day! Look how much he’s grown in just a month…


    WHo doesn’t ride bikes in the house? and these guys LOVe having friends over:

    Most of the month of January was spent mastering the hoverboard and mini segway! Even Millie can cruise on that thing!

    A friendly round of Stinky Sock – Tiago’s favorite game:

    My necklace that I got from my mom from Grandma Johnson’s Jewelry Box!

    And my boy is learning to write! and he loves to play games, WITH ME:

    I just wanted to document what the kids are reading.

    Packer – Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Big Nate, Wonder. Got sick of Harry Potter on book 2.

    Benji – read every Brandon Mull book! EVERY SINGLE ONE. Better than HP even though he is a big HP fan!  He has also read Rick Riordan. He is reading the Beyonders now.

    Cali is trying to read all of the Battle of the Books books. She and I have been reading Mr. Poppers Penguins at night when we get to bed on time.

    Rose has started to like to read. She and I are trying to read together but I need more hours in my day.

    Millie just listens to whatever the girls are doing.

    Ray and Tiago have piles of books on their beds that they “read” at night 🙂

    Liv and Maddie

    Liv and Maddie. ALL of our kids were obsessed with this show during November and December.

    Who do you want to be? Liv? Maddie? Parker? Karen?

    Even Tiago was quoting Parker and his tunnels: Bam what? Mission accomplished.

    I am happy to report that the phase is over. Christmas vacation is great for switching up routines! and we got lots of new games to get out of the TV rut.

    Thanks to LaNell and Erica and Becca we hiked to Battle Creek Falls on our day of no school. I ran into my old roommate Brittani King (Oliver)! Then the kids hot tubbed the afternoon away. Until wrestling practice anyway.

    President Russell M. Nelson

    No Comments

    President Russell M. Nelson: The 17th president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He was called and sustained on Sunday the 14th of January and then on Tuesday they had a broadcast from the temple to announce him and his counselors and then a news conference to answer any questions. It was such a great and uplifting morning! I thank God for a Prophet to guide us in these latter days! Dallin H Oaks and Henry B Eyring are the new counselors. President Monson will be missed.

    I took the first turn driving! and didn’t stop until Carlin. We stopped for gas and lunch from the Subway

    And then Ben took the wheel and didn’t stop until we pulled in to Oroville! 10 hours flat. 7am to 5pm – Our fastest trip yet.

    Mom and Dad, Michael, Ryan, Kevin, Joel, Tracie, Shannon, and Kelsey families were there waiting for us! Eggers showed up soon after that:

    Ryan and Tracie made us dinner and we all opened presents from Gma and Gpa and then did gift exchange with Ryans family since this was their only time with us.

    On Wednesday we played at the house and then looked over the fence at the old house and then spent the rest of the morning /early afternoon at Sierra school playing football and hanging out with Rob and Raeanne.

    Ben and some of the group headed to Hula’s for lunch! and we played games the rest of the afternoon. Josh, Brady and Sean all showed up!

    We all had dinner that Kevin and Joels peops made and then had the final gift exchange!!
