Well, we finally did it! We got our little girl out on the mountain and it was great! I couldn't be more proud of her. We had a blast! We went up to Snowbird for the night and she did very well. It was a little cold, but she was a trooper and now she is hooked. All she could talk about on the way home was when she gets to go again! She is definately my girl! We had so much fun together rolling around in the snow! Definately a night to remember! Now it's Jessica's turn! She's coming down to go snowboarding this weekend and it's just in time for a good storm. I'm taking her to the top of the mountain and letting her either sink or swim in some good ol' Utah powder! Are you ready Jess??

Don't be shocked! Pat and Kent are getting in on the act. I have had some trouble getting this computer and software working. I am not sure this posting will even take place. I think I need a different mouse, hard drive or at least a new transmission. My mercury is having trouble too. The carborator don't carb, the generator don't gen and the Piston -they don't work either.

Excluding the soreness and bruises, I think we had fun.

Looking good Jessica!
And to top it off...
This morning we woke up felling like we were hit by multiple Gray Hound buses filled to capacity with foreign tourists seeking Yellow Stone National Park.

Well, we are here trudging through a very warm wet January. Everyone is hard at work and school. It was a nice relaxing holidays for us. We did miss everyone though.
Our sunshine left for Idaho. Were are glad that she is there meeting new people and doing cool things. It sounds like she has some awesome classes too. She is still getting used to the difference between the Florida Keys and Northern Idaho.
I told her that my old ggg grampa Lars Ole Olafson, back in Denmark said that there is no such thing as bad weather... just bad clothing. Suck it up!
Geoffrey decided that he was going to tear up the mats this winter and decided to join the wrestling team. That seems to be going well for him. Morgy is playing Basketball. Its fun to watch them. They both went to see the Harlem GlobeTrotters, who were in town tonight. The whole team signed Morgans Aeropostale Hoodie. Yea..We thought that was nice! Stephanie is tearing up school and getting ready to start training for Volleyball again.
Jessica had a birthday and it sounds like it was a great one. Paul and Linnette and everyone-- Thanks so much for making her birthday special.
Lori, Mom Dad, Paul and Linnette Thanks again for helping Jessica off to get of to a good start. You all really made a big difference and thanks for driving her all the way up there.
Can't wait to come out this summer.
Enjoy life and keep the faith. Love Brian.

Here we all are in Jessica's new SWEET Crib!
Vienna is crazy about Jess! They even got sweet matching hats to brave the elements in Rexburg Idaho.
This is outside Jessica's dorm! Look how excited she is! (I think I might have been more excited than her!) She was great to put up with her annoying aunt!
I thought I would give everyone a "heads up" on the family reunion. Yes, remember we discussed this last year! I hope your calendar is marked and pennies are being saved! I have a pretty good idea of where we are going to have it. I am speaking with some people at a condo resort in Midway Utah near the Homestead. The dates we will be staying are July the 3rd, 4th, and 5th! So try to get those work schedules worked out. I have lots of great things planned like lots of swimming, hiking, golfing, alpine slides, maybe some scuba in a nearby crater, hopefully a mom's retreat at the nearby spa, and plenty of 4th of July festivities in nearby Park City. I am hoping to get these condos for a very discounted rate through a friend and I am thinking between 60 and 80 dollars a night at the most. They are full condos with kitchens and we will be doing a lot of our own cooking, but don't worry about that, I'll be taking care of everything. Considering we have NEVER done anything like this and the entire family has not been in the same place since my wedding in 1997, I think this is a pretty important deal! SO, don't say I didn't warn you! I know getting time off work and expenses for a trip are hard, but try your hardest. It is going to be a lot of fun and a time with Mom and Dad and the rest of the family to really remember! Mark your calendars!
Things are going pretty well for us! Bryce and I went up to Logan for the weekend. I had some choreography to do for a dance company up there and we decided to make a get-away out of it. We met up with some old friends for dinner, hit a basketball game, and relaxed in the hot tub for awhile and without kids, it was a REAL vacation! Mom and Dad were so great to take the kids overnight so we could do this. They are so great. The kids got spoiled by Nana and Papa. They went to the movies and then to the swimming pool where mom got to see most of the Moore family from Minnesota. Of course they are all doing well. It's always funny to hear about those guys!
So, things are going pretty well. This is always kind of a dead month and we're all just trying to get through it all. It's pretty cold here and with Bryce's ankle in recovery from a Basketball injury, we havent spent any time up on the mountain. I just feel for poor Jessica. I think it got down to -15 there a couple of nights ago. She said she felt like here face was going to crack on her way to her 7am class! Coming from Floirda, she is not too happy about Rexburg's climate. I don't say I blame her! I'm somewhat of a warm-blooded creature myself! We had a lot of fun taking her up to school and getting her settled in. Paul and Lin got to come and meet us for lunch too, that was nice. She is going to have a blast up there. Let's all pray that she doesnt freeze solid! I guess those are the little things that make us remember college so fondly!
