I was only a little bit behind..

Here is the latest and greatest.....

Lego Competition State Championship went great. The guys didn't make it any further, but they had loads of fun.

 Between Runs they could sign up for practice slots and run their bots to ensure that everything was running smoothly.
 This is what the competition tables look like. They're trying to figure out how to set things up before their run begins.
 Here is the team as they head into the opening parade.

 Crash loves the lego pen. He could sit in there the whole day and build some pretty crazy cool stuff.



We scored the best we ever have, but some teams are just so amazing.

 This is our table set up. Each team has something sort of similar and its really cool to go around and visit different groups and see the projects.

 Watching your bot do the right things and not the right things is so crazy...

 The guys waiting for the interview...


Snow Day!!! We couldn't believe that they cancelled school. I don't think the kids have ever had a snow day in their lives. Gator went out to shovel.... actually to redo it all, Jeff got up early and shoveled. Later that day I shoveled again. It was a three shovel day...





I had the best birthday ever!! Lunch with my Momma and my boy!! Then I got spoiled by my hubby and kids. I loved the phone calls, text messages, PM's and Facebook messages. I feel really special on my birthday thanks to those messages. Plus also, I don't feel old because if I were to die at 39, people would say... "She was only 39" So there's that.  I am looking forward to 40 cause I am done with the "get it's"... by that I mean... Get a husband, get an education, get kids, get a house... you know the get to it's... now it's maintenance.... I think 50 starts the new set of get-to-it's... Get the kids graduated, get the kids on missions, get the kids married, get the house paid off, get grandkids, get our mission papers in... if all goes as planned Asher could potentially serve in 2034, that means I have 14 years to work out these other details... Ry could leave in 2024 that is even more crazy.... Alex 2025-ish depending on school, Eden in 2030 and MayLee in 2032. When you write it out it doesn't seem that far away. AAAAAAHHHHH.... 

We have been so lucky to live in this area and see so much growth. With community growth, comes growth in the church and stake. We had another split and a new Stake was formed. President Zamora is part of the new Maples stake. It was an honor to serve with the Zamoras.


 Jeff is now called to serve as first counselor in the Stake Presidency and President Carlile is called to serve as the second counselor to President Wensel. Our stake of eight wards is all squishing together in two buildings. One building is being lent to us for a time; since we only have one building in our stake boundaries. I love to see the church grow so much. It makes me happy. There are of course kinks to work out as we shuffle around a bit and try to find closets and time slots for activities, but we will all adapt to the changes soon and find routine again. I love that President Wensel has his two body guards with the same haircut... 


Sometimes Crash just can't make it through Come Follow Me... 

zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The Tall and Small Ball was a dream come true to my little girlies... Asher wasn't digging it until we got there and then, then he thought it was pretty great... There was great little cookies, finger sandwiches and fruit kababs. Dancing and Princess's, sitting in the carriage and even a magical castle. Daddy thought his little princesses and prince would love it. Eden said she loved getting all dressed up. May told Dad in his Valentine how much it meant to her and that she wished she could go to more dances with him. Asher was happy to take off his suit coat and eat cookies.
