Let's try this again.

I realize no one reads blogs anymore.   But last week i put together my 2013 blog book...and realized i missed having a record of things.  I had some pictures posted, but hardly any words....and while i'm still SUPER impressed with myself for even getting a book with a bunch of pictures in it put together, i have a feeling I would appreciate some wordy-posts in the future as well.  So I will try again.  

In December we decided to fix up our garage.  It was a bit spooky and run down...we were just going to freshen it up a bit.  A week into the project we decided to take the garage door off, put up a wall and make the room into a bonus room.  It's been a few months and we are still not quite finished with it.  And now we need to build another garage.  But it will be awesome.  Some day.  Here's the garage "before"  Stay tuned for the "after".

Audrey Kate is my "taster".  She can hear the mixer turn on from the other side of the house and she comes running.

Kody dropped a giant rock on his foot and smashed his toe.  After a few days of not walking on it we took him in for an x-ray.  Wasn't broken...but things were black and blue for a while.  Here's an x-ray of him getting an x-ray:

Audrey saw Kody wearing this shirt and said "oh, it's dada".

We got chickens in November.  Here they are before the neighbor's dog ate them all.  It was horrible.  But we replaced the flock and now we are in business again!

We drove to Disneyland in January....this is carson sleeping in the car.  We find it's best to leave at a while (until 2 AM or so) so we can get pretty far with kids asleep.  We get a hotel, and then finish up in the morning.  

While down there we got to see some of our favorite people, anna and andrew!!!  here are the long lost twins:

and who are these hot ladies??

These cousins had a pretty good time together as well.  

Audrey had a great time at disneyland:

waiting for the toy story ride:

when i look at this picture i start to panic because i won't always have an adorable 18 month old.  dang it.

Lego heaven:

Pinewood derby.  Carson took 4th i think?  This was the first pinewood derby we had to do without Grandpa John.  We are still getting the hang of it.  good thing we have many pinewood derbys in our future....


So I feel like I should write more words down.  More things about how my day has been going...what we've been doing, etc.  The problem is is it's 10 at night.  I still have to clean the house a bit (i hate going to bed with a messy house...and even though i usually pick it up at night, i've decided my standards for cleanliness are way more lax at night than they are in daylight hours...because when I wake up in the morning the house always seems to be a disaster).  I also still have 2 kids awake.  I need to get them to sleep.  So i'm not going to write much.  But i will think about writing tomorrow.  Or the next day.

I may be the only one, but I still read blogs, and I'm always delighted to see a post from you.
