A day at the pool.


Mom and Kason enjoying the pool last Saturday.

New pet for the kidsssss..






Let’s see how long this pet lasts. Well we’ve had fish but the kids never fed them and dad got sick of cleaning the tank. Then we had mice and enjoyed them oddly enough but after Alison smothered one to death and the rest got sick and died we decided to put the whole pet thing on hold for a while. Then dad made the mistake of bringing a, you guessed it, a snake home after work one day last week. The girls had one once before but while camping left its cage unlocked and lost it in the woods. This one they named cheetah because it’s fast and hard to hold, it’s already gotten out 4 times but luckily didn’t wonder too far from the cage. Kason’s taken an interest to it and likes to touch it and then try to hit it, the girls love to hold it and think watching it eat feeder fish is cool.

The girls are on their way to Broadway!!

On Sept. 20th the girls performed in their first play, “Hansel and Gretel” they had a lot of fun preparing for the play and they both did a wonderful job in their performance. Honestly, we feel they were the best on stage. Alison played a “Wally bird” and Laurissa was one of the witches “Nasties”. They performed on Saturday at 3:00 and at 7:30 at the Midvale arts center. They now are asking when the next play is so they can audition. Oh boy here we go…

Veggies Anyone?


Well as you can tell, the garden is doing wonders and we are now officially sick of vegetables (just kidding) Kason has been eating all the small tomatoes single handed. The girls love the garden but are getting tired of harvesting the fields.

Another Surgery In The Family..

Well on September 5th, Sarah went in for surgery.
Although she could name dozens of other things she would have rather have been doing, she was a trooper and went through with the doctors recommendations. The plan was to go in for a Bilateral Nasal Septum Reconstruction, Sinus Turbinoplasty Reconstruction with a Bilateral Ethmoidectomy (don’t ask me what that means I call it the Roto-Rooter treatment). So after over 3 hrs of surgery, and 3-1/2 hours of recovery she was able to go home. She is doing well now it’s been a slower recovery than she had hoped but she is doing well. Way to go Sarah!!
Yes, I Have Photos.
No, I will not put then up.(I cherish my marriage)

Back To School!!





On Monday August 25th Laurissa and Alison returned to school and met their new teachers for the next year. With Laurissa now in the 4th grade she is looking forward to a year of new friends and fun. She has always loved school and she enjoys learning new things so far she is loving the opportunity she has to learn. Alison is excited to start the 2nd grade. At first she was nervous, but with the encouragement of her sister she quickly became excited. In her first week at school she scored a 100% on her first spelling test, what a champ. Kason is having a hard time getting used to the fact that his sisters are no longer around during the day time, but he still gets to enjoy the time he gets to spend with his mom Sarah. Although we think his favorite part or the day is when dad comes home with his big 100 ounce mug of some kind of drink, Kason loves to plunge right in as you can tell.
