Grandma Got Run Over by a Snow Blower:)

Just a reminder of the past - for any of my family who remembers the Christmas of Grandma's "accident"! This is just a little song us cousins put together and sang for Grandma about 10+ years ago. It's sung to the melody of Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer...

Grandma got run over by a snow blower,
Standing in her very own garage.
The man that was driving it didn't see her,
We almost had to scrape her off the wall!

Grandma's response, "It's not funny kids, I was almost hamburger!!!"
We love you Grandma Hazel:)

Quality Time With the New Member of the Family

On Saturday December 8th I had a chance to spend some quality time with the newest member of the family. I took the new sled our for a burn up the Mirror Lake Highway with five other friends. The snow conditions were okay. We did get into about 15-20 inches of powder on the road above Lost Lake. We broke trail from lost Lake over the pass below Bald Mountain to the High Line Trail. The riding was good for trail riding and gave me a chance to get used to the new sled. There were three in our group getting used to new sleds on this trip. We also took the chance to break-in the new rings and pistons on my friend Dan's sleds. All sleds ran well and I believe are as excited for the real riding to begin as we are as riders. As for the new sled, the power is nice and it floats and handles pretty well. It will take some getting used to. I'm looking forward to getting into the steep and deep. We were not able to get off the trail due to low snow conditions. The depth of the snow is still really scary. There is about 30 inches total at Trial Lake, we normally have about 4-5 feet this time of year. We are in bad need of more snow.
This is a picture of a couple of the guys that who I was riding with. Trevor is next to his new machine on the left, Dan's sled in the middle, and Moe on his new ride on the right. When we have enough snow to get off the trail I promise better more exciting pictures. These pictures are taken just below Bald Mountain looking back up toward Bald Mountain.
For those who have never been snowmobiling, it is a great way to see the beauty of the back country during a season that many neglect to venture into. It is breathtaking how beautiful everything is and how the scenery changes with snow. Pictures will never do it justice, but I plan to try and share a couple of the best picts from each ride throughout the season.

Good old friends and the lights on Temple Square

These are my old roommates - Amber and Lisa - they were in town for Thanksgiving and we were able to meet at Temple Square in Salt Lake to see the Christmas lights - it had been forever since I had seen them, so it was a fun reunion!

Christmas Tree Hunting!

The day after Thanksgiving, Tyson and I went into the mountains to cut down a Christmas tree. Tyson's sister and her family came with us. It was so fun - we think we'll make it a yearly tradition:)Ethan and Alex in front of their Huge tree
Hey - is that thing going to fit through your front door??
This one is the one we got for our apt. It looks kind of tiny compaired to the other one - I think it's cute.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

We had a fun Thanksgiving at Heidi and Josh's new house. My parents were able to come down to Utah so the whole family was together - except for Stuart, but he said he had a good day in CA. Here are some pictures of our day.

I think Kenton ate two or three cans of olives by himself!! He sure takes after the Danielson side with his love for them - even the green ones!
This is Dad and Lydia - he was so tired that day from the drive down. The kids sure enjoyed being with him though!

Kathryn and Dad - I guess they all had to take a turn watching the movie with Grandpa! Ethan and Dad - Ethan loves to try to get people's cell phones!
Ethan is SO funny!! He was getting kind of crabby because he wouldn't take a nap. I was holding him and trying to find something to amuse him with when I noticed he was pointing at the bowl of ice on the table - so I gave him the smallest piece I could find and he stopped crying and wanted more! It ended up working so well and we ended up giving him a little bowl of crushed ice and he seriously ate it like it was candy!! He cracks me up! I think he actually had two bowls full!

Now we just need some snow!

Well - here they are - the long awaited pictures of Tyson's new "baby". He's patiently waiting for a good snow up in the mountains so he can take it out to play and then we'll post some "real" pictures! Tyson also wanted me to comment on how good his truck looked that day after he spent hours washing and waxing it:)

A few random pictures

Here are some totally random pictures that I thought would be fun to share. They are some that were taken just in the past few weeks. The one with me reading to my sister Heidi's little boy Ethan was taken at my nephew Kenton's b-day party. It was a really cool dinosaur pop up book and Ethan loved it, but right after this picture was taken, he reached out and ripped the book - oops! The one of Tyson and Jesse was when they were fixing Jesse's car - I guess they got stuck and had to turn to some instruction manuals for help. Well, they ended up being the wrong books but they were able to fix the car anyway - so is it still working Jesse?? The other one is of me and Tyson's sister's boys Ethan and Alex and me having a fun ride in Park City - hey I fit and it was actually comfortable!!

Camping Camping Camping

We love camping and try to go every chance we get in the summer. We go with Tyson's family. His parents and one sister both have campers and Tyson and I have our tent - yeah - can you tell who just got married and can only afford a tent??:) Anyway these pictures are from one trip that my parents and Jesse and Serena were able to come visit for the day. It was so fun being up in the mountains with both our families. Tyson and Brien spent a couple hours building a dam on the little stream by our camp and the guys had some fun shooting stuff like huge cucumbers and empty spray paint cans - boys.

Our One Year Anniversary - 08-18-07 - Yellowstone!

Ok, so this is really old news by now, but I thought I'd share some pictures of our 1st anniversary trip to Yellowstone in August. It rained on us everyday!!! Seriously, we got soaked everyday we were there, we learned very quickly to bring change clothes and one day we even had to stop at one of the lodges to use their dryer because we were so wet - and when I say wet - I mean dripping! Once we got used to being wet all day everyday, it really was a fun trip. We saw tons of wildlife including 5 bear:) We stayed in such a cute cabin in West Yellowstone - all their hotels were so expensive, so when we found a deal on a cabin that was cheaper than one night in a Super 8 we jumped on it - if anyone is planning a trip down their anytime soon and are looking for a cute place to stay, check out Moose Creek Cain - very fun and the owners were So nice! Anyway, we had a wonderful time and we can't believe we've been married for over a year already! Time flies when you're having fun!
