Have u ever been to Boonville...it's a real place!..haha!!
Buddy's tongue is a trip!!!
The coach was our Bishop and his brother in-law which have adopted us into their fun family (they have 5 boys and a girl, the bishop is married to the girl) so with that many siblings and all of their kids it feels as close as possible to being home with cousins on the holidays. This has been a great blessing to my boys...we love you Showalter family! Oh and of course Jake was one of the assistants!! He loves control...wonder where that comes from?????

These were Sonny's dumplings, he boiled some and fried some and they were both delicious! The boys loved them and we wished we had leftovers! We have been craving them ever since!
This was us at the Fish hatchery. This turned out to be one of the neatest memories of the trip. It was Kevins idea and we weren't thrilled about it! As soon as we got there and saw all the fish and watched them fight over the food as we feed them it was AWESOME! Great idea babe!!
Jake and Austy feeding the Trout! Just before Austy fell in!! He will need therapy for that!! haha! He thought he would be eaten alive! I think the fish were more traumatized than him!:)
My awesome boys!! Who could ask for more!! Kevin makes some pretty good lookin' boys I will be the first one to say!!

We love the weather here in New York in the Spring, Summer and Fall is awesome but I would give up the Winters in a heartbeat. Friday I took the boys to the orthodontist and at 9am it was -1! -15 with windchill factor. And boy the wind blows! The schools are amazing and the people here so friendly and down to earth. There are definately more positives than negatives. We are greatful for all we have!
Austy must have been the comfiest thing in the car or the most patient because the dogs just gravitated to him! Austy thought it was sooo funny!
Jake was so good at Wrestling. There is ONE bonus to having mine and my moms stubborness!! haha! He wrestled alot of boys who have been wrestling for 3 years and most of them weighed 10 lbs. more than him and had more leverage with the height they had on him!! I am so proud of both the boys seasons! After the last meet the high school coach came up to Jake and told him how good he was and told him he should try out for club that he coaches at the high school! Awesome complement! We wish family could have seen their achievements this year!! But this is the best we can do. We miss you and Love ya!
They are such typical boys showing off their muscles. It is hilarious to see them check out their muscles in the mirror when they think nobody is watching ( gotcha!!)
This was 2 weeks into the season you should see them now! Jake has started his growth hormone shots and is almost at a 6 pack and has gained 10 pounds and grown an inch in 2 months! awesome!
Poor Kevin! He is just like his mommy! They seem to blink in more pictures than not! ha ha! He hates it!
I am a dork with computers and can't figure out how to turn this picture! Oh well!
This is my NOT SO baby!! They are growing up so fast. Austy is such a mommies boy and is always asking if I want some ice water or if I need anything. He is such a special little man to me! He is very thoughtful and very sensative. He hates to disappoint me. When we were leaving temple square Austin screams " I can't believe we got to see the Salt Lake Temple in REAL LIFE!!" I thought that was hilarious! The little things kids appreciate that sometimes us adults take for granted. We are always being humbled by them!
Our family has gotten huge since being home last! It was soooo fun seeing all of you and the boys miss all their aunts and uncles. They grew up without cousins being the only grandkids...getting spoiled rotten. They have had to make a huge adjustment to Aunts having kids and not getting all their attention. :)
Don't you love getting pictures like this taken of you!!

KC found a new sport that he loves and he
is really good at. He and Jake made alot of new
friends on the team this year.
This is their team uniforms. The team hated
them because they were called the "Little Devils"
which they aren't little right! ha ha! Boys! So they
wouldn't wear them to school on game days
because they were all embaressed. Guess the
school needs to get some new uniforms. Jakes
was sooo big I had to alter the sleeves and the
bottom. Poor kid!
This is their team and they went undefeated
the whole year. They were so excited. They won
all the teams 4 games to 1. This was really good for
Jake to be equal to KC and I was able to see
them really bond with Volleyball. A moms prayers
