December with The Stanger's

Jake went snowboarding for the first time this month! He was so excited! Mike has been snowboarding since he was young and wanted to get Jake started in on the fun. They spent the summer gathering equipment for Jake. They waited for a day when there was FINALLY enough snow and set out. Jake had a great time. Although, he was a bit sore the following days. He said he wants to do it again. I'll let Mike handle that......

Merry Christmas from the Stangers! We hope all of you had a wonderful time with friends and family. We spent Christmas Eve with my family, over at my parent's house. My brother, Ez, and his family came, along with my brother, Clint. We ate yummy food and visted with each other. Christmas Day we spent in Farmington, with Mike's parents and his brother and his family. We also got to spend the day on Christmas with Mike's Grandma, Laverne. My boys just love spending time with Grandma Great. Although, Isaac was a little worried about getting her home to sleep in her OWN bed......

Isaac and Mike grew chin curtains for Christmas!! Isaac loves to do everything Mike does, which includes growing facial hair. Isaac came down to sit with Mike and said "look, Dad! I grew a chin curtain, too!" FUNNY BOY!!

Isaac also celebrated his 10th birthday this month. His birthday is EXACTLY 1 week before Christmas- not ideal for mom. We spent the day at Classic Skating where Isaac cruised on his scooter and jumped all of his energy out. After Classic we went to In-N-Out Burger for refueling. After dinner we had Mike's family over as well as my parents and a good family friend, Chris Lagiusa, with his son, Parker. We all enjoyed sugar cookies and ice cream to honor this special boy. Sometimes it feels like a lot longer than 10 years, but I wouldn't trade it for a minute! Happy Birthday, Isaac!!

Last weekend we went camping with my brother, Ez, and his family. We drove about an hour and half up through Park City and Heber to Strawberry Reservoir. Ez found the perfect campsite with plenty of room and a little stream running off to the side. We packed up the 4-wheelers for some fun in the back country. We spent the days driving on the trails and cookin' up some good food. I admire how well Ez, Tammy, Lance & Cody all tolerate Isaac so well. We all had a great time! Although, I must admit, 2 days of sleeping in a tent (without showering) may be a bit much for this city gal..........
