Happy birthday sweetie. Brin had her very best friend over to help her celebrate her 3rd birthday. She got barbies, pom poms, and a my little pony beauty shop. Grandma Collins got her the Barbie Three Musketeers movie. She has watched that over and over and over....
Caden thought it might be fun to be the Christmas tree this year. At the annual Hyer Christmas Eve party we had a great time as always. We played the candy bar game. As you can see it was just as fun and crazy as all of our get togethers. This year we missed Darren's Family, Jared's Family, and Leilani (she was sick, boo).
We had an awesome Christmas this year. Caden and Holly got Snow boards. Emilie and Talon got skis. Jeff got a big screen TV (thanks to his parents buying a new flat TV,yea!). Ports was loaded with lego's and Brin got a new baby doll and some other fun toys.
Grandma made sure that we had plenty of noise makers to bring in the new year right.

My sweet little girl just turned 8! This of course is a very special birthday. Emilie has been so excited to be baptised. She was counting down the days. I was also looking forward to getting some beautiful pictures of my little doll in her white dress. As you can see she is absolutely beautiful (prejudices aside...she is adorable)!

Pause the music at the bottom of the blog so you can hear the music they were dancing with :0)
Key the music! Anytime music is playing, these kids love to dance. They are so dang cute!!! I'm glad I thought to record it since I've never seen them dance like this before!

What a wonderful 14 years we have had. We both marvel at how much more we love each other since the day we were married. At that time it seemed impossible that it could be stronger. We are the perfect match in all ways. Thanks honey for the wonderful day you gave me on Sat. We had so much fun! Also, thanks to Leilani for taking the kids for the weekend so we could have some nice alone time!

In the past the Collins Family has gone to Lagoon for a wild and crazy day of rides, however this year we decided to go to Bear Lake. We all had so much fun.
Calub is the Little Mermaid, Talon build the Logan Temple, Caden created his version of the Bear Lake Monster, and Aimee, Calub, and Josh built great castles!
We were the only ones willing to try water skiing...Caden, Talon, Holly, Jeff, and Russ Hansen. The rest are a bunch of babies!
Porter had his 5th Birthday! He got a Gameboy and some games from us and Grandma and Grandpa Collins. He also got $6, which he is very excited to spend. He chose Pizza for dinner, always a favorite for him!
Porter is such a fun little guy. He always has a way of making me smile and laugh. Port's best friend is Carson Goodworth. They LOVE to hang out and do so almost on a daily basis. He is also my pickiest eater. I think he only loves meat and sweet...He at least isn't gagging anymore when I make him try new things. One baby step at a time. I am hoping by his next birthday that he will at least eat a few veggies and fruits! Porter is a great singer, however he requires some bribery sometimes to do his best singing. He loves to sing How Firm a Foundation. He is also great at choosing the right...well most of the time anyway :0)

This is a picture from our 5th parade we have done this summer! The the
me was "Back in time 2009". I didn't know that this parade was on Monday, I thought I had a full week to get ready for it, but no I had 1 day, and what can you do on a Sunday to get ready?? So after cramming my brain for a little bit I thought, Big hair 80's would be so funny. I was totally laughing my butt off as I was getting us all ready. It was like stepping back in time with my hair :0). I wish I would have got a better pic of Talon, he was halarious! Under his jacket all he had on was some big necklases. Isn't Brin a doll! Anyway, our float theme was "Then...Now, Bear Lake ROCKS!!!" We had 80's music blaring out a speaker, and we got some pretty good laughs as we went by! :0) Too Fun!
This is Brin's new cousin Tyler. Mandy and Steve are his foster parents. They have just been given the go ahead to adopt this little cutie. I am so happy for all of them. He will be very loved and cherished in thier family! The other pic is Carrie, Mandy, Ty, and me :0)
Janice, Julie, Meg, Sherilyn, and some of our kids
