Snow Day



We played in the snow tonight. John and the older kids are working on a ramp. I will have to post pics when they are done. I love playing in the snow when it's dark out.

Ryann had her first orchestra concert tonight.Ryann is very talented, like her Dad and does not seem to have stage fright like her Mom and big brother. It is hard to believe that our second child is already in middle school. I can remember going there to see Brandon play in the band.

big boy underwear


Trey gets to wear big boy underwear and he is so happy. We are hoping that this will also help take care of some of the kidney problems he has been having since surgery and will prevent surgery number 8 from happening too soon. You can see on his face how happy he is. However he may not feel that happy that I posted a pic of him in his underwear when his older.

Marvin Goldstein comes to town.

Marvin Goldstein came to G&G Ryan's for a visit this past weekend.G&G had the whole family over on Sunday to enjoy some wonderful piano playing. Marvin is a very talent and very nice man. Ryann got to play the violin with him. On the video you can hear that he kept having Ryann go faster and faster. She did an awsome job of keeping up with him and had so much fun. He even let Christopher play some foot music, as he called it, with him. It was a great evening. Thanks Grandpa and Grandma for inviting us.

Trey and Brie

Last week we took the babies to get their pictures taken. Christopher was a ham and Brie wanted nothing to do with the whole thing. They turned out pretty cute.

Let it Snow!

It started snowing Wednesday and it snowed and snowed and now it is cold , cold, cold. The kids loved playing in it the first day. Now if they tried to go out the would have frost bite in about 15 min.Brrrrrr.









The Wii Olympics






















For Family home evening this past Monday we had our first wii Olympics. Brandon was was not here because he was off building robots to take over the world.(Robotics club as he calls it). It was a lot of fun and even Christopher joined in. We competed in Slalom, the ski jump, running and Soccer. The competition was tough John and Ryann got very competitive on soccer, But everyone took time out to laugh at me attempting to play soccer. John's high score was 550 and Ryann's was very close to that, my high score on the other hand was 55:(

Jesus wants me for a Sunbeam

Christopher went to Sunbeams for the first time this past Sunday. The teacher told the kids to sit with their feet on the floor so he sat on the very edge of his seat trying to put his feet on the floor. He did pretty well for his first day but made me go with him to class. At least I got some picture's of him.





Basket Ball


Alex is playing basketball at the rec center.He really loves it and is doing a pretty good job. He enjoys being one of the tallest kids on the team.

Cookie and the Caw Caw's


Last Friday Brandon's band( which includes his cousin Nathan, and their friend Chad) played at a little coffee house. This is the third time that Brandon has played there. It was really cool to see him up there and he plays the drums really well. The band name on the other hand needs a little work.
