The other day I was loading up the boys to run errands. Rylan ran into the garage and grabbed Tyler's bike. I told him that we had to go, and that he needed to put it back.  He cried no, he wanted to ride bikes. I kind of laughed to myself, as he has never ridden a two wheel bike before, so I watched as he got on and rode off. I was in shock. He rode as if he has ridden many times before. That kid is amazing.

Corbin's Baptism

Unless something changes in the near future, we plan on baptizing Corbin on Jan 1, 2011 @ 5:00 pm. It will be at our stake center, but I don't know where that is at the moment, so more details to come...

Snow Day

Yesterday was our first snow day.  We woke up to over 8 inches on the ground. Since no one had to go anywhere, we got up and went shopping for snowboots. After returning home, Mike and the kids bundled up, and went out to make a snowman.  Tyler made one by himself, but it fell down. Mike, couldn't just make a normal snowman, he made a gigantic snowman. He used a pair of skis to  roll the second section on, but broke them in the process.  He got it together. I was at least a foot or two taller than Mike. The kids had a great time running around and throwing snowballs. At the end of the night Rylan came in the house crying because Corbin had hit him with a snowman. I corrected him and told him it was a snowball. He corrected me saying, "no, it was too big. It was a snowman.".

Notice in the picture that Rylan has no gloves on.  He refuses to wear his gloves. He takes them off immediantly if we make him put them on. He is one stubborn child.

Today while cleaning house today, the boys were watching a movie. I went into the other room, and when I came back Rylan was gone. I asked where Rylan was. From the kitchen I hear him respond, "I'm makeing a pancake for Merek." He was in the kitchen, had turned on the oven, sprayed the pan, and poured the leftover batter from breakfast onto the pan. I helped him turn on the burner and watched as he made a pancake.
