So, Back to my project. While making my miissionary board I concluded that I wouldn't have enough room on my little 3'X2.5' board do do all my siblings and their spouses that went on missions, but I think I'm going to make a BIG one for My Mom where we can put all of her chilren and their spouses that served missions and where she can keep track of all the grandkids that are now starting to go, It'll have to be HUGE! This is the only picture of my mom that I could find that was closest to 21 years of age.
This is My Dad's Highschool Graduation picture. He actually joined the church after high school and went on his mission at age 21( I believe)

Caib has been Soooooo excited. He even consented to go to the valentine dance at the middle school because if the boys didn't show up for school that day they would miss out on the ski trip. Yes, the middle school also takes time to teach the kids proper respect for girls and proper behavior at dances.
So, the boys each have a pair of Carhart winter coveralls. Perfect!! Well Braden has out grown his so he's going to wear mine. I don't use them, so much, anymore since I quit raising calves at the Dairy. Caibs are only a couple of inches to short, due to the fact that he's so tall and skinny, But with ski boots on no one should notice. I did splurge last year and bought Braden something besides leather work gloves to take with him, and I think they both realize that there cowboy hat's might not be the best option while flying down hills at undetermined and out of control speed. So there you go.
What did you expect when you decide to take a bunch of kids skiing, from a little cow town way out west? But, I can guarantee these kids will come home warm, having had the time of there lives and hopefully with only minor bumps and bruises. At least fewer bruises then they got this last weekend, as their Grandpa pulled them around the hay field in an old water trough hitched to the back of the pick up. I think there was a little snow left on the ground. The funnest part of all, said Braden, was when they caught air every time they hit a frozen cow pie.

this is one of those rare moment's when you're glad the camera was in the right place. The boy's had picked up my book of Disney songs and they were flipping through and singing the ones they know. It was humerous to sit and listen. I don't think they will find it humerous that I blogged about it.
