Today our scouts went around the neighborhood and collected supplies for the victims in Haiti. It was exciting for the boys and they did an amazing job. They collected granola/cereal bars, empty water bottles, hand sanitizer, first aid supplies and even cash donations. It was neat to see how excited they were to help those in need.

This past thursday was Dillons First Pinewood Derby. He was very excited about it. Casey and Dillon and Grandpa Brent Cut out the old fashioned wedge and weighed it with shot gun bb's. It was spray painted by Dillon in red with a black stripe down the middle. We will always remember this project because we have spray paint marks on my front porch! Here are the highlights of this event.

Casey and I took the kids to go Ice Skating for FHE this past monday. We got together with Ashlee, Mitch and Val, and Tyler and Aleisha and their family. It was freezing, but the kids had a lot of fun. The kids skated for 2 hrs and what an ordeal it was. Dillon was all wet from falling, Blake had sores on his feet from wearing the wrong socks. Mitch's nose turned red and Lyla kept crying everytime someone ran into the wall. Casey took pictures, I took care of Lyla. Mitch, Val and Ashlee took turns helping Payton and Tyler and Aleisha were helping Blake. I think the adults were more exhausted then the kids!

Payton has started his very first year of basketball this year. He is on the Cavaliers team. They had their first game on saturday and won. Dillon's season is almost over. He plays for the Rockets and is undefeated. He has improved so much since last year and loves it. He is hoping for a trophy to add to his collection of sports recognitions. Here are a few pictures of the boys. As for the girls, well I cant ever seem to captivate them in any pictures. Kylee is still in guitar and has been for a year now and Mariah plays the violin. They are both active in 4H and very active with facebook and texting. It seems to be the only important things in life right now! Anyways, here are pics of the boys.
So Casey has earned his first heifer working on the ranch with his uncles. He branded it this past week and will artificially inseminate it this summer. (Notice the CG on the front shoulder? He is very proud of it). By the time he's fifty, he might actually be able to consider himself a small rancher. (If he can afford the up keep).

On new years day Casey had a team sort. The kids enjoyed themselves with friends and riding horses.
