Alyxibeth was jumping on the trampoline and John came from behind and “stole her bounce.” Alyxibeth collapsed and said she heard a snap in her leg. We went out to the and she was cradling her leg. Amie called Jacob and he came over and put a splint on her leg. We took her to the ER the next morning for X-rays and a splint. We have an appointment on Monday for her cast.
I started playing around with iMovie on my iPad. This is my third trailer. I am enjoying how easy it is to make a fun little movie of an adventure that we went on. This is from a hike that we took in early March a few days before the lockdown began.
Last night we went for a walk at Mary‘s River Park in Philomath. It was a beautiful evening and the kids really enjoyed getting out to play.
It was a wonderful Christmas morning. (I liked that the children let me sleep until 5:00, they had been up for two hours already)
One of our Christmas traditions is making gingerbread houses. For the last couple of years we have done it with graham crackers. It is a lot less work and still just as much fun. Here are some pictures from this year.
We were taking Lynn and Alyxibeth to the airport. They are going to Los Angeles for surgery on her foot.
The kids wanted to see if our favorite tree lot was up, and it was. So we stopped and bought a tree as we were heading to the airport. Luckily they said we could come back after we dropped Lynn and Alyxibeth off at the airport.
These three came and stood by the van they were so cute I had to take a picture. Klaus just got a hair cut.
Today is Alyxibeth’s birthday. She is seven today. We will celebrate her birthday tomorrow because Emalie is flying home from Utah.
We are all sad with the passing of Grandma James last night. It was a surprise to us all.
So after all the kids had turns on Grandma Jo’s four wheeler they wanted me to have a go at it. I wasn’t sure I wanted to, but then had the thought “why not, do something fun every once in a while.” So I hopped on. Just then I felt Lynn wrap her arms around me. Man I should have gotten on earlier! That makes me want a four wheeler if Lynn is going to ride behind me like that.
This is a picture that I took while in Oregon. We had such a good time spending time with Lynn’s family.
Emalie came home and reported on her mission. We took a few pictures at the church.
