Happy Birthday to Scott

Scott had his birthday back on Dec. 9th. Another year older and another year wiser. Phoebe was in charge of his cake this year and made it with the younger kids help. She was very nice to let them help her do the mixing and frosting. It was tasty as always.

Scott came up with the yummy idea to make Christmas shaped rice krispie treats. Scott cut them out and the kids all enjoyed pouring on sprinkles and decorating them. They made a great treat and were fun to put in the kids lunches for the next few days.

Gingerbread House

Every year we purchase a gingerbread kit and everyone takes part in decorating it. This year the kit even came with some fondant to decorate the door with. Phoebe was very excited about that and for some reason it smelled really good and was hard to keep from just eating. I think we made it maybe one day before the kids started eating pieces , Yum!

Trying to get The shot

I tried to get everyone in some semi coordinating outfits and smiling happily to capture our family this year. As you can see they did not turn out. Either Paisley was making some crazy face, Luke was crying, Scott's head was chopped off, or someone was out of place. Oh well, I guess that is why people pay photographers to take the picture instead of trying to get your kids to smile for an extended period of time while the camera beeps to the self timer. Oh and then there is also the fact that they all want to jump out of place right after the picture is taken to see how it turned out on the screen. At least I have something documented for this year!

I don't know what Paisley and Luke were thinkning

This is the only one that turned out semi o.k. but Scott has an antler growing out of his head.

Isn't she just CUTE!

I just had to put this one up of Paisley. She can just be so cute!

Ethen's 1st Fish Gutting

That title is probably innacurate, but I didn't know what to call it. Ethen went on an overnight scout trip this past weekend and did some fishing and hiking. He caught a large mouth bass and brought it home to skin and eat. Luckily Scott knows how to do all that kind of stuff. I just take the pictures. Here is Ethen doing his first gutting. He got 2 nice fillets and will eat them today. I also took some video but the files are too large to put on here.

The finished product. It was pretty tasty!
