The Invention Convention

Madison is in 6th grade this year which means country reports and the invention convention. She invented the "no mess desk".

Messing around

Cora loves to dress up Malori and take her picture. I thought these were quite good.

Tubing up American Fork Canyon (Jan. 7, 2010)

Brian took Gretchen and Mali up the canyon to go tubing. Doug, Autumn and Braxton went, too. I'm pretty sure Brian is the only one that hurt himself.

The Rhodes' family "after" Christmas party

Every year the Rhodes family (Connie's side) gets together for Christmas and has a meal and one of the best white elephant gift exchanges I've ever done. We sum it up with a good old guess how many M&Ms are in the jar (which I have to say, I have won the last 2 years). Mmmmm, I love M&Ms. This year we met after Christmas at Noah's in Pleasant Grove. We were able to ice skate on the roof and hang out together.

The Bullock siblings

This year we Bullock's decided to go have dinner together after Christmas. The Saturday after we borrowed a huge van and drove together to Maddox in Brigham City. Of course, you can't drive that far and not continue on to Gossners for cheese and Pepperidge Farms for cookies in Cache Valley. The food was amazing and the company even better.

Christmas 2009

We had so many activities before and after Christmas that we ended up with very few pictures of Christmas day. We had an amazing day! We are so blessed to live close to both sides of our family. We always do breakfast with the Bullock's and dinner with the Smith's. I love it. (Notice the picture of Brian? That's BoBo. If you ever have a minute, or 10, ask him about it)
