On New Year's Day, some of us decided to go to Fat Cat's in Rexburg. It was a pretty busy place, so they couldn't bowl, but they had fun in the arcade.
Molly and Ryder think they are as big as their parents and can do anything they do.
We went to Blake's Aunt Ilene's funeral, then to Chuck A Rama afterward. Blake and Merralee got Helen 3 plates at the same time. She felt silly with all 3 plates in front of her, but she ended up eating most of it.
Ryder loved helping to make banana bread. Annie and Clark like Grandpa to read them a story. Annie loved her magic trick she learned from her kiwi crate. I loved hearing her laugh. Ryder stayed over a for a weekend and had to have some stories before church. Clark liked painting his mat that came with his cricket crate, Annie liked it too. Ryder enjoyed painting on his cricket crate mat too.
We celebrated Nikelle's 26th birthday on the 13th, since she was at her Grandma's funeral on her birthday on the 6th. All the kids like the cake time.
Randy and Ryder set up the Magic Track to try out the new cars for it. Ryder loves to watch the cars go up and down the hills, and through the tunnel.
Molly loved her xylophone, tambourine, and dancing flag that we made from her Koala crate.
We took Ryder bowling with Brian, Annie and Clark. Once, Ryder got the idea that he had to take turns, he really liked it. Annie and Clark love it too.
It was a fun day.
We went to the Ag Expo in Pocatello. Ryder liked getting in the big bucket of the loader and standing on the huge wheel of the tractor, and eating popcorn.
January 19 was Grandma Purcell's (Helen) 92nd birthday. She's living with Merralee now, so there was soup and cake at her house.
Fun at Texas Roadhouse, Ryder and Molly were both watching videos on their parents phones. Annie lost her first tooth! Ryder and Molly love to play together. Ryder and Grandpa playing with the Tony the Tiger truck.
Maden's playing basketball again. It's still quite entertaining to watch, but Maden has improved a lot. He makes quite a few baskets, and he's very good on defense. Molly and Clark and Annie are his best cheerleaders.
