Snow Day

So we got a Christmas Tree that Marcus absolutely LOVES! THe first couple of days he wouldn't leave it alone. We decorated the tree and I started noticing they were missing ir hiding in my shoes...so we had to get plastic ornaments and slowly the ornaments have moved up the tree- out of reach!
Can you see what is hiding in the tree??? (No, it's not Marcus!)He kept yelling ball! I even found socks in there.The first day it snowed! Snow Day-EVERYWHERE! It is crazy here. Marcus was hesitant about the snow.Then, I couldn't get him into the house!!!

Bellevue High School Volleyball


As you know I coached at BHS this year with the girl's varsity team; it was a long season, but fun and rewarding! Our season ended yesterday (Saturday) after fought for a spot in the state tournament (we finished 3rd in our league and I think probably 7th or so in the district). I am so proud of the girls, they improved so much and did so well! Good job girls!
P.S. Check out the candy leis! thanks mom

Grandma Durrett


Last week my mom flew in to see us and watch some volleyball. If you didn't know I coach at Bellevue High School, and when we made it to the finals or play-offs my mom flew in to watch. We didn't expect to do so well, but we are still playing for states now. Needless to say, my mom should have extended her trip an extra week, because if we win on Saturday we are going to the State Tournament. Well, while she was here she spoiled us and we miss her already. Marcus had no problem going to her (best buds, see he remembered you!) and it was good to see her and for her to see Marcus!


Mom,

We love you so much and miss you too. Thank you for all that you do for us, always supporting us and spoiling us! Marcus misses his grandma durrett!!! ;o)

Love you,
us

Princess Kira


My niece Kira is 3 years old and that is the least of any one's worries!! On Halloween she wouldn't say "trick or treat" or "happy Halloween" and her parents told her she couldn't get candy for free; that she had to say something! The next house when my sister told her she had to say "trick or treat" she simply put her hand is her face and said, "don't worry, I've got this under control!" And she said it! Needless to say her costume wasn't far off. What a little Princess!!

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween!
This year we took Marcus to the ward trunk-or-treat/carnival and it was so much fun. Last night for Halloween, we went to a kids party and Marcus had a blast. Hopefully next year he will enjoy it a little more. But, he did get to eat some candy for the first time!
Superman!

Sucking on a dum-dum

Kira's Drawing of Uncle Cameron

You may be wondering what this picture is, well it is a picture of Uncle Cameron. See, our niece Kira LOVES Cameron. She is new at this drawing people bit and has been cleverly trying to distinguish boy from girl, using a squiggley ling for a boy (ding-ding) and a "w" for a girl. So needless to say my sister was a little shocked when she saw that Uncle Cameron had 3 LEGS! Or so she hoped?!

Pretty sure the conversation went like this.

Kahala: Kira who is that?

Kira: Uncle Cameron

Kahala: Nervously asks (afraid her daughter may know too much at such an early age)
What is that? (pointing to the what-she-hoped was the third leg)

Kira: It's Uncles Cam's body, DUH MOM! (you know cus Cam's tall)

Kahala: OH! Kahala just laughs and walks away!

Unfortunately, Cam has a body but no private parts. hmmmmm......

ABC School

Story time/Snack time- Marcus had 2 muffins and tried to eat this poor girl's one when she wasn't watching!
Bubble time

Marcus' friend Clancy


Twice a month Marcus goes to ABC School, which is basically a play group put on by some Relief Society sisters in the nursery room, where the kids can play, have a snack and the letter of the day. This week the kids dressed up in their halloween costumes.
