Now that Tristan is 16, he has started looking for a real job. He put in his first application today, at one of the movie theaters.


Brinley started piano lessons last month, and Jasen decided to teach himself how to play too! So far he has breezed through her book, and taught himself the first verse of I Am A Child of God. He's doing awesome, but politely declined my offer for lessons. :)

Princess Makeover

A few onths ago I heard about a Princess Makeover day that the Paul Mitchell School was putting on, so I signed Brinley up. She was so excited, and had a great time!

Basketball Game

Today was Jasen's last game of the season, and they played Sawtooth. It was an intense game, but we won 35-32. Jasen has never played basketball before, and I'm so proud of how hard he and his team worked. They went undefeated 10-0 this season!

Today for President's Day, since the kids had school but Cahl was off work, he and I decided to go for a hike down by the Snake River. We took the dogs and went for about 4 miles round trip. We found this really cool old stone cabin, and the dogs had fun playing in the river.

Blue and Gold

Tonight was Hunter's last Blue and Gold as a Cub Scout. He has been sick with strep the last few days, so we wasn't feeling great, but it was important to him to make a cake and go. He and Cahl made this awesome Pinewood Derby cake, and he won the prize for the Fanciest Cake. He's also been hard at work earning his Webelo pins.

Snow Camping

Jasen was invited to go snow camping with some friends this weekend, and they had a great time! They built snow caves and went snowshoeing.

Guest Bathroom

We've been wanting to put a full sized shower in our downstairs/ guest bathroom since we moved in, and just hadn't quite figured out what we wanted. Well, during a random trip to Lowe's we found that they had 2 of the big pieces we needed- a shower pan and shower door set- on clearance. So we bought them and decided there's no more reason to put it off! It took a few weeks to get it done (since Cahl had a tonsillectomy during the middle of everything!), but it's done now and it's perfect! We have a full 5 foot tiled shower, with built in shelf, and sliding glass doors!
