Olivia's Birthday

Our cousin Livy turned 3 on Tuesday! We had a birthday party for her at our house.
Emily made a cake in the shape of a 3, and Livy helped decorate it.
Yummy! (and yes, I washed her hands after this!)
Livy's daddy made her a pink elephant cake. Livy loved both of her cakes!
Time for the party!
A party hat for Pawpaw...
...and one for Uncle Michael - Oops! That's not where it goes!
Why not wear lots of party hats? :)
Here Livy is taking a picture of Pawpaw with all his funny hats
Opening presents
A doll from Aunt Misty and Uncle Michael
Livy loves Elmo, so Emily made her an Elmo outfit! It is so cute!
Happy Birthday, Livy! We love you so much!!

Fun With Cousins!

A silly picture
Tyler is too mature to make silly faces...but Will and Noelle aren't!
A pile of precious kids!
Tyler is pretending to be a monster. Look at the three little ones trying to get away! :)
Now Tyler is a horse taking the little girls for a ride.
We have so much fun with our cousins!!!

The first picture was taken Sunday evening, and the second was taken Monday morning, when we woke up to see over 6 inches of snow!

The 4-wheeler looked so funny!

Stuart and Dixie loved the snow!

Our house in the snow

Daddy shoveling the driveway

We all had a lot of fun sledding behind the 4-wheeler!

Here is a video of some of the rides on Tuesday. On Monday the snow was soft. Tuesday it was better for sledding, but kind of painful because little chunks of icy snow were thrown up by the 4-wheeler tires, and pelted you in the face if you were the one on the sled. :) It was fun anyway!
David after a ride - he's wearing blue jeans!
Making snow cream!

Mr. Richard's 100th Birthday Party!

On Saturday we attended a friend's 100th birthday party!! Mr. Richard has 10 children and 81 grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren! (That's not counting all the spouses, either!)
In the summer we pick blueberries for Mr. Richard. (See pictures here)
Mr. Richard is still buck dancing! He won the Buck Dancing Championship in 2005 and 2006!
After the birthday party we went to the Richards' lodge for another celebration. Watch the video below to see Mr. Richard buck dancing at 100 years old!
Cutting the cake

New Year's Eve

A family from our church came over on New Year's Eve. We didn't think to get the camera out until about 5 minutes before they left, so we don't have very many pictures.

We thought this picture looked like hens roosting!

Happy 2011!!
