All dressed up!

I never get pictures of them in their church clothes and looking cute. Today it worked! Even Ginger has her dress on. If they were only sitting closer together... I'll take what I can get.

Ashley recently drew a picture for an art compitition at her school. She earned an honerable mention medal. She was pretty excited. When we get her picture back, we'll post it. (It's on the table in the picture, but you can't see it)

Happy Halloween! The kids had a lot of fun looking forward to this day. Sam finally liked his costume halloween night. Ashley went as a USC cheerleader, Lincoln as a knight, and Sam as a dog.

Sam has officially taken over Ginger's bed!

So, Ash and Linc got to go to a Real Salt Lake game with me. It was very fun. They were amazed at the size of the stadium and how far they could kick the ball. And, they loved the music they play when Real scores. :)

Salt Lake Real vs. New York Red Bulls
It was really fun going to the new Rio Tinto Stadium with Dad on October 14th. What a fun daddy daughter date!

Ashley's new favorite things to do with her cute little puppy...

Thursday, October 8, 2009

So, 68 days ago or so Ashley asked Jon when we could get a puppy. He said in 68 days we will get a puppy. Wow! A firm commitment from dad! She counted out 68 days and put it on the calendar. Well, here we are, with little Ginger. She is 8 weeks old and a Mini Schnauzer. She will grow to 12-15 lbs.She is super fun and cute. I found kAsley up early yesterday reading Ginger books with blankets all around her. Lincoln runs around and gets her to chase him. And Sam calls her "puttee" and always know where she is. He tries to wrap her in his blanket. I must admit, she is very fun (even with the 2 am whine to go outside to do her business). Lincoln told a lady at Jon's work her name is "Ginger Bread Pocock". He is always full of fun comments.
We have had a lot of fun the past few months with birthdays, school starting, and UEA in CA. Here are some pictures of the fun we had.

We had a great summer!!

We were able to spend over a month in CA living with Jon's parents and 3 weeks with my parents. This allowed for a lot of fun and activities as well as getting to know cousins really well. We had a blast. We are now into our home in Sandy have only our memories and pictures of the great times we had.

Here is Ashley in her first ballet performance of Swan Lake at Kingsbury Hall on April 8, 2009. She was so excited for this performance and had so much fun with rehearsals and the production itself (even if she was only on stage for 10 minutes!). She played the part of a baby swan. It was fun to see my little Ashly grow up and be so confident on stage.

Sledding on New Year's Day, Sugarhouse Park.
Lincoln's "legs were tired" until he found this jump. Then we couldn't get him off the hill.

Sledding is serious work
Ash is airborne!

Mom as the silver bullet going head first down the hill. This was her last run of many. Unfortunatly, Dad hurt his shoulder a few days earlier. He took one run with a big jump. Then he was convinced he needed a rubber pad to go down on. :)

Sam was blindfolded most of the time. No wonder he didn't complain much!

Yes, that is a pink binki... Serious times call for serious substitutions.
