We also drove around American Fork (Fark), and Elise could not resist this picture, you can barely see the mountains in the background

Utah: Week 25

Merry Christmas everyone! This past week was amazing and we had a lot of fun. There are a lot of pictures this week, so I will not write too much for the post. But to cover some highlights: Elise took the kids snow skiing this past week. Kas and Netter loved it, Zo was hesitant …

These are designs my Mom did, and these are so great, it brings back so many memories of my early childhood

Utah: Week 24

This is week 24. I am doing things a little different these next few weeks. Instead of posting on Monday, I will post on either Tuesday or Wednesday so that you can see all the cool things for the Christmas. Then when we get to the new year, I will resume on the Monday posts, …

Zo wanted us to take this picture to show everyone that this is her decoration

Utah: Week 23

It’s beginning to look (and feel) alot like Christmas! And this past week the weather was very weird and the kids had a lot of fun. For me, it was the same old thing, go to work, try not to be overloaded and make sure I tickle the kids. For the most part that worked, …

Blowing out the birthday candle, and I know she was wishing for her Daddy to get a brand new computer too

Utah: Week 22

Here we are in week 22! This past week was very fun, especially for Zo, as this past week was her Birthday! This past week we hung out in AZ for a few days, then drove back. Once back we got back to usual schedules, and I got really sick. I am still recovering from …

On Saturday, Elise and I went out to get lunch, and we got these cool toe socks. The girls were excited that they had to put them on right away.

Utah: Week 20

Twenty Weeks and now comes the Thanksgiving Week. The Hird family is now a Utah family. We are settling in to this new environment and doing all the things we need to do, and living in Utah as a regular now instead of outsiders. We are still outsiders, but not as much anymore. This past …

Since I still am not driving, Elise came to get me, and took a few pictures on the way home, which this one is really nice

Utah: Week 19

November is upon us. Colder winds, changing colors in nature and visits from snow flakes are all around. And this month looks to be a huge month for the Hird Family. But lets get down to business. Last week’s caption contest proved to be an extreme failure. I guess it really should not be. After …

Zo made this pumpkin watch while she drew kitty whiskers on the other one

Utah: Week 18

We have now made it through October and are starting on November. This past week gave us many photos, some of which you may have already seen on Facebook this past week. Others were because my family is awesome-sauce when it comes to Halloween. And me, well I am trying to still get better after …

As you can see, the ground was blanketed with snow. It was an amazing sight.

Utah: Week 17

Weeks have gone by, and the Hird Family is still exploring Utah and the new life here. This past week is no different. In order to understand this week, we must understand the family. Elise was born and raised in Arizona. Minus a little time spent in Slovenia, she has been almost her whole life …
