Lost Tooth

Well Nate has had a loose tooth for quite a while and all last weekend we were trying to convince him to let us pull it out but he wouldn't let us near it! Well on Monday he came home from school and it was still there but while eating lunch he looked over at me and said Mom, I think my tooth fell out and I said well where is it and he said I don't know. Just like Nik he swallowed his 1st loose tooth. I guess because they are twins they think they have to do everything alike! But here is his new photo with a missing tooth, the one next to it is loose too so pretty soon he will look just like Nik again! Cute Kid!!

House for Sale (anyone, anyone)

So it is official--Our house is up for sale! I'm not sure how I really feel about this plan but I guess we will see what happens. I gotta tell you the first time I drove up and saw the for sale sign in the front yard I got a little teary eyed but I do think this is the right thing for us to do right now. We had some people come look at it within the first few days we had it on the market which freaked me out a little but we haven't heard back so I guess they don't want it! Well wish us luck (I guess) on getting it sold and if you know anyone in the market for a house send them our way.

Walking with Dinosaurs

Last night we took the boys to see Walking with Dinosaurs at the Energy Solutions Arena. They had so much fun and as soon as it was over Nik asked when we could come and see the dinosaurs again! (In case you didn't know all of our boys are obsessed with dinosaurs)

Here are the boys in their seats at intermission!

Here is a long neck

Here are some "cera's" fighting. They weren't really triceratops they were something else but to my boys they were two Cera's (gotta love Land Before Time)

Here's another dino with the narrator. The dinosaurs were really big. I think if we hadn't been in the nosebleeds the boys might have gotten pretty scared!

And here is the boys favorite the T-Rex! (They also had Utah Raptors which are Nate's other favorite but I didn't get a picture of them for some reason) Noah didn't like the T-Rex very much it was too big and loud for him! But Nik & Nate thought it was awesome!!

Here is a video of the T-Rex protecting its baby. My camera definitely doesn't do it justice!
All in all it was a really fun night and the boys had so much fun!

Sledding Fun!

Who knew I had such crazy brave boys?
We went sledding yesterday down to the new church by our house and the boys had so much fun! They started out just going down the hill but pretty soon they wanted to try one of the jumps people had made and then they wanted to try a bigger one and a bigger one until they went off the biggest one there! They had the time of their lives and I was pretty proud that they are so brave (I wouldn't have dared to go off those jumps)!
Nik & Nate ready to hit the slopes!!


Noah spent most of the time just laying & playing in the snow!


This was Nate's first jump he caught some pretty good air! And had the biggest smile on his face!


Here is Nik catching some air!


This is Noah the first time Clint sent him down by himself-yes he is upside down!


Here's Clint having just as much fun as the kids! Best Dad Ever!


Clint and Noah sledding down the hill!


Nik jumping again!


And here is Nate with the biggest jump of the day! CRAZY!!

I think they would've stayed all night if we let them. They love the snow!
