Thanksgiving & Skiing at Snowbird 2011

McKell and Sammy, Snowboarding professionals. I didn't take any pictures of our great Thanksgiving dinner. We had the Rose family with us and my mom, brother Kory and Drien and her new baby Kaz. It was a full house but really great!!!We got to ski a couple days and had great weather and even better company. The Rose family ended up spending 4 days with us. Leslie, Tanner, Spencer, Aaron, Isaac & Sammy all went skiing and snowboarding with us. It was really great having all of them with us. Georgia and I tried to ski on the big hill and my bad hip sent me back to Chickadee with the kids and the beginning snowboarders. Depressing that I can't ski but still lot's of fun.
Jake, Aaron, Morgan, Sammy, Spencer, Garrett & Katie. Brady was back in the room after a big crash and concussion. Helmets are Good.
Tanner, Morgan & Mitt
Me and Mitt with our sad faces..
This is our funny faces..

Just a house of boys now!

Mitt in one of his warrior outfits. He wants to be a fighter when he grows up. He has a great imagination.
This was the only picture I had of Marc's Broken arm. Morgan and I took turns cutting his cast off with the metal snips. He was so patient because he wanted it off so bad. It was allot harder than we thought. Long story about this broken arm. Only cost about $3,500.00 ouch!!Mitt is always cool...
Mitt and Morgan are pals.
At the fair Mitt making gang signs on this large pumpkin.
Mitt is always dressing up. He loves to create these warrior outfits.

Billing Montana Temple

I spent a few days in Billing Montana recently. Were stuccoing a very large barn. I had some time to kill and was hiking around the Temple.

Holloween 2011

Madi, Zane and Shanlee came trick or treating with us. Mitt was going to be Buzz Lightyear but at the last minute dug this Firefighter Costume out of the dress-up box.Marc did a little driving around with his Big Bear in his PJ's
Litttle Shan was snug as a bug in her Chicken Suite

Mitt was the designer of this years pumpkin. I think it is our best ever...

Shanlee Carson - Grandparents are born

Madi doesn't know it but she made having a baby look like a walk in the park. Okay, a walk in the park with a really sore hip. But still a walk. Moma and baby are beautiful as can be.I've never seen a white baby with so much dark hair. Madi and all of our children had snow white hair. Invisable to the untrained eye. Wow, we really got some of those Carson genes on this one. I'm sure she will be a great mix of short and blond and tall and dark. It will be fun to see which other traits make there way in.

And finally, 2 very young grandparents. As you can see.

McKell - She is GREAT! Senior Pic and Zambia

This is one of McKell's senior picture taken by Stephanie McBride. Not sure if it's one of McKell's Favorites but it is mine.McKell graduated from AF High on June 3rd, partied all night at Boondocks and left for Zambia. Here are a few of her pictures that will become great memories. I think she will never forget.
Not going to give much description, you will need to ask McKell. But she was able to lift the spirits of many with her smiling face and kindness. I'm sure they don't know it but the lifted McKell as well.

I had to include this picture. I just loved it when I saw it.

A stopover in London gave these 3 a chance to sight see. They had an entire days layover on the way to Lusaca. From the looks of it they made the most of it.
The last 2 days were spent in the Bush on Safari. Never imagined they would see so much wildlife so close up and not get eaten, trampled, bitten or whatever monkey might do to you.
It's all fun and games until the jaguar get's hungry.
