New Pictures

During general conference we took a drive up to the mountains and listened on the radio. Then, we found some good spots and took new pictures of our kids. Boe is 8.

Kamber is 5 1/2.


Boe was baptized on Oct. 10. I am so proud of the decision he made to be baptized. He had so many friends and family there to support him. He is such a good boy and I love him tons!!

Dan was able to baptize and confirm Boe. What a great day we all had.

Happy Birthday Boe!

Boe turned 8 on Sept. 11. He had his very 1st birthday party. It was a lot of fun. He invited 6 boys and all of them came! They had so much fun. They all rode the bus to our house for cake and ice cream.

Then Boe got to open all his presents. He loved everything the kids gave to him. Dan and I gave him a mp3 player already downloaded with his favorite songs. He loved it.

After presents, I loaded them into my van and we went and played laser tag. Boe's Uncle Nate and Aunt Cierra came to play, too. The boys all had so much fun. It was a great idea for a birthday party!

Back to School

Well, school has started again. Kamber is in kindergarten this year and Boe is in 2nd grade. Kamber is so happy to be able to catch the bus with Boe in the mornings. They were both very excited!
On Friday's the kids are supposed to wear their school t-shirts or red. They look so cute all matching!

So I am finally going to update my blog. So, if you have time, go ahead and enjoy. If you don't you better come back when you have more! :)


So we started out our summer by going on a cruise with two other couples. We were planning to go to the Mexican Riviera, but because of the swine flu we got re-routed to the Pacific Coastal. We got a good deal on it and it was so much fun!

The first thing we had to do was find our life jackets and all meet out on the deck by our life boats. Here is Dan and our friend Mike looking studly in their life jackets.

Here we are at our first port in San Francisco. Can you believe our huge ship? It was amazing!!

The food on the cruise was incredible. You could order anything on the menu. If you told them you couldn't decide between lobster or prime rib, they would bring you both!! We made sure we always took the stairs instead of the elevators so we didn't come back with an extra 20 pounds!!

One of the favorite things I did on our shore excursions was eat lunch at the top of the space needle. My friend Emillee and I went while our guys went deep sea fishing and our friend Heather met up with her sister-in-law. What an amazing time we had. It was definately a once in a lifetime opportunity!!
Us girls got our hair done in the salon for the formal night. We all felt so beautiful and we had a great time.

The entire ship was very elegant. I felt like I was on the Titanic with all the beautiful staircases. Dan looked handsome in his suit and it was so much fun to have a romantic date with him.

Here we all are. What a great time we had!! I am so glad we have such awesome friends to make fun memories with!!


We had a beautiful baby girl on July 8, 2009. Nettie was so special that we were only allowed to have her for an hour on this earth. It has been the hardest thing in our lives to have to bury our daughter, but we are so thankful for the gospel and knowing that we will be able to raise her and see her again. She was so special and you could feel her little spirit so strong.

We had a little prayer service for her in Rexburg, then we took her to Emmett to bury her with her namesake, my grandma Fisher.

We will always remember Nettie and we can't wait to be with her again!


We went to the Bear and Wolf Discovery Center this summer. It was a lot of fun.

The kids were able to feed the bears. They took all the bears out of the habitat and then gave the kids buckets of food. They go to hide it under rocks and plants.

This is the bear Sam. He came out after the kids left and found all the food they left for him. It was a great time.


We went to a rodeo also while we were in Island park. It was great.

Boe and Kaianna are waiting to ride a calf.

Boe did great. Except when the calf bucked him off he did a flip in the air and landed on his hip. He limped off the arena.

It was worth it to him, though, because he got a dollar. I think he would do anything for a dollar!!

Dan's little brother Nate got married at the San Diego Temple. We took the opportunity to make a family vacation out of it.

We all had so much fun playing on the Huntington beach.

My cousin Cameron let us borrow his body board. It was a blast to catch the waves in.

Kamber liked playing with the sand and searching for shells.


While we were in California, we had to go to Disneyland. What fun memories we made there!!

The first ride we went on was Star Wars. It was very cool and the kids loved it.

You have to wait in line now to be able to see the characters. Kamber really wanted to see some princesses. We saw Jasmine and this is as close as she got without waiting for a half hour. It was good enough for her!

The Indiana Jones ride was really cool. The line wasn't even too long!!

Splash Mountain is still definately my favorite. We bought the picture that you get at the end. I will scan it and post it soon! It's a classic!!

It got pretty hot in the afternoon. The kids could usually find shade while we waited in line for rides.

We ended the night by watching the fireworks. There was still a couple of hours left that the park was open after the fireworks, but our kids were begging to go home. They were exhausted. Next time we will definately make more time to spend two days at Disneyland. It really is the happiest place on earth!!


Nate's wife Cierra took her endowments out at the Newport, CA temple. It is a beautiful temple.

Nate's friends volunteered to babysit our kids so Dan and I were able to attend the session.

Dan was one of the groomsmen so he got to wear a tux and be in the wedding party. He looked very handsome!!

The San Diego Temple is beautiful. It looks like a castle!

Nate and Cierra had their reception at Cierra's dad's backyard. It was beautiful. I am so happy for them.

Well our summer was definately a roller coaster ride but we made a lot of memories.

Kamber's 5!!

I can't believe that my baby girl is 5!! It almost makes me want to cry. She is such a good girl. We are so happy that she is in our family. She is a little mother and loves to take care of her cousins Andrew and Hannah. She has even gotten VERY good at changing Hannah's diaper!!! She is definitely a girly girl, and I love it!!

I made her a Strawberry Shortcake cake this year. I think it turned out pretty good. She was very excited about it!

Make a wish and blow out the candles!! She blew them all out in one breath!!!

She got lots of gifts from her friends and family. She was very excited about and loved all of them. She even got earrings and a jewelry box because she got her ears pierced for her birthday from us.

She was very brave while she got her ears pierced. It was just before while she was sitting in the chair waiting that she got very nervous. She started crying and the lady piercing her ears told us that if she told her no at any point she couldn't continue. So, she got brave and sat very still for them. They did both ears at the same time. As soon as they did it, she said, "OUCH, hey, that didn't hurt so bad!" She has done a very good job twisting them and cleaning them. Now she asks me everyday when she can change them. I'm sure she'll change them many times each day, just like she does her clothes!!! I love you Kamber! Happy Birthday!!

Christmas 2008

We had a great Christmas this year. I didn't get too many pictures of Christmas day because I took a lot of video instead. This kids got to go and see Santa and tell him what they wanted.

In Rexburg at the same place Santa was there is a carousel and they gave free rides. The kids had so much fun and got to go on as many rides as they wanted. My nephew Kyle was with us and so were the Stokes and the Allens. Everyone had a great time together.

The kids got everything they asked Santa for. Boe asked for a Gameboy and Kamber asked for a purse. Good job this year Santa! ;)

Boe's Christmas Program

This is Boe and his good friend Troy. Boe has been so sad because he moved to California so he hasn't been around since this program. He was a really nice little boy and Boe really misses him.

This is my good friend Heather and me at the program. Kamber was taking pictures. I think she did a great job!

This is Boe and his class during the program. The lighting was horrible so it didn't turn out very good. Anyway, all the first grade classes sang and they each had memorized a Christmas poem thet they said together. They all did a really good job.
