Misc funny pictures!

Forget the high Uintah's, Bigfoot is right here in Clearfield. I was just trying to capture Beckham marching around in his new boots and a diaper. I love this picture it cracks me up! They have finally started entertaining each other. HAPPY DAY! Beckham has to wear pink hats and act like a baby, but hey it's great fun.
Speaking of hats. Beckham has a little obsession with Brynlee's pirate hat. He points to it and makes me or Scott (mostly Scott) wear it. He points and says, "WEAR IT." Scott has even had it on his head on the way to church before. That's how you know it's gone too far. A few weeks ago I took him in Brynlee's school with his swim goggles on his head. (which he wears frequently) The front desk secretaries thought he was so cute. Beckham loves his accessories and we rarely go anywhere when he just looks normal. I hope he grows out of it before the school years. Right now it's cute but there's a fine line between being cute and getting beat up.
Dressing up the sweet patient dog. Someone has to wear the hat! Whoever holds still the longest I guess.

Sister's are so darn funny!

Beckham is Brynlee's biggest fan. He giggles at everything she does......unless he's trying to hit her.

Spaghetti is good to eat AND great entertainment.

Drywall Baby!!

We have progressed to the drywall stage in the basement. Below are some exciting pics (probably only exciting to the Wade household) I am super-mega proud of Scott and all the work he has put into the framing, plumbing, electrical, and heating for the basement. We owe G-Pa Roger a big dept for all his help as the "General Contractor." It may be slow progress but Scott is careful to plan well and do everything right. We're very happy with the way it's shaping up.
The future "Kid Cave" with access to the future toy room.
The toy room side. This room has me really inspired to paint something cute on the wall like a cottage or a castle. But since I'm no artist we'll see if that comes to fruition or not. Once it's finally done I'm not sure I'll have the steam left to decorate the way I see it in my head.
The family room, which has us so excited to watch a movie by the fire we can hardly stand it.

F-A-L-C-O-N, Goooo Faaalcons!!

We were really proud of Brynlee in her dancing debut at the Clearfield High basketball game on Friday night. She tried to attend a cheer clinic when she was three but was NOT into it. We ended up with a t-shirt for our efforts on that occasion. Brynlee has mellowed alot and when I asked her if she wanted to try again she said yes. She has shown a lot of interest in dancing since that first cheer clinic and has been going to tumbling for about a year. However, I had my doubts about her ability to overcome her fear of the crowd and I was really worried about her. She practiced hard for three nights and was ready for the game. She was awesome! Brynlee just has to do things when she's good and ready. Brynlee is in front of the little girl with the pink boots who is her dance partner for this routine. I didn't get it on camera but she lingered a little longer after the other kids with her hands in the air since the show was totally about her. She also blew the crowd a big kiss which got a lot of laughs from everyone around us. She's a bonafide ham!

Happy New Year

Hapy New Year friends and family. Let me start by telling you all how much we love you and we're thakful for each one of you in our lives. We wish you all the best of everything for a safe and successful 2009. Ok, so Josh brough it to my attention (like I didn't know already) that I'm kind of a blogging slacker. I did some power blogging tonight and put up a whole slew of posts below. They pretty much sum up what we've been up to since my last post on Scott's birthday.... which has pretty much been vacation and holiday busy madness. We had a fantastic little break in the mix with Thanksgiving and a visit from Josh, Bethany, and sweet Maddie. It was so much fun to see them and love and kiss Maddie as much as possible. We miss you guys! Like a total loser I didn't take pics that I can post on here. I have great video of Maddie trying to crawl but I have issues with how LONG it takes to post a video on blogger. Holy cow! No amount of patience on earth is enough for me to post videos on blogger. Sorry! This last long weeked was well spent, mostly painting our family room. Mom and dad were kind enough to keep kidlets for two night and we painted the night away. What party animals we are! Scott is the best husband ever. He worked so hard and was patient with my every whim and fancy. We love the way it turned out and are wondering why we didn't do it sooner. Sure it was a lot of work but so worth every second. New paint and a new year. We feel ready to take on 2009.
Scott getting started. What a sweet husband!
One "After" pic of the north wall. Apparently I wasn't smart enought to take a before pic of this wall.
BEFORE or during. I was so scared the color was a little intense at first. It definitely has to grow on you.
After.
The pictures just don't do it justice. The color is so much better in the natural light. It is called Mojave Sunset. Scott says it reminds him of Moab. I describe it as Terra Cota.
Before.
After.
Bethany if you are reading this I just haven't put new pictures in the frames yet but it is absolutely my first order of business. Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures. We love them!
Happy New Year!

Blessed

We wrapped up 2008 by feeling encredibly blessed. We have two healthy happy kids and were able to celebrate a wonderful Christmas season with our families. We are very happy and strive to never forget our blessings knowing there are others who are not as fortunate. I was able to get a quick picture of the tree after Santa came but before the savage paper ripping began. Brynlee with her new prize posession, her Nintendo DS. She has trained a Chiuaua named Kia with a little help from Baby Grandpa.
Beckham loves his new train table and plays with it constantly. This is a huge relief to us and makes it all worth while that it takes up TONS of valuable real estate in the house.
Pressent ripping fun. Brynlee's out of luck this year, Beckham knows how to open them all on his own now. It drove her nuts that it took him so long to open all his presents.
They were both pretty tuckered out after playing with all their new stuff. Time for a little movie relaxation from all that playing!

A Haunting Good Halloween Time

Brynlee and Courtney were super cute little vampires. They didn't even coordinate their costumes it just happened that way. They were surprised to see each other's costumes and had tons of fun together. Thanks for coming out Courtney! And Beckham was.....well, Beckham. He was supposed to be a dragon but we couldn't get him to cooperate so he was a two year old in a Halloween T-shirt. Now that's SCARY! Doesn't make for a great picture but we'll keep him anyway.
Witch's brew anyone!
Or maybe you prefer jell-o organs?
Or how about a bloody eyeball?
