If you look very close at this cop you will see a dummie in a police uniform, siting on the road to Page, out of Kanab. We laughed and laughed and laughed.

Can you find Wes? This is the way he loves to sleep. All you can see of him is the top of his head in the top right corner.

The girls loved Temple Square, or as they called it The Square Temple. All we heard all day is, "Is it time to go to The Square Temple." They make me laugh.

If you know anything about my family, you know that they are kinda weird, Wes was trying to push my parents away, they were tickling him, and Bugga, that's what we call Randel, always have, always will, thought it was funny to put Dylan's fist in her mouth. Don't ask me I just take the pictures.

It's been almost a month, but it has been a busy month. We went to Utah for Christmas. I had fears of our last Christmas trip to Utah coming back to haunt us. The last time we went to Utah for Christmas, Victoria was almost 2, she broke her leg, on the way back we had to stop in Beaver, Utah for several hours so Dylan could get IV solution( 2 liters). You can imagine my fears, now we have 5 kids, what will happen. Well I'm glad to say that the worst was our van beaking down, but at least we were already at my parents.
The girls loves the snow. They loved it until they were cold then declared that they were cold in side their bodies and needed hot chocolate.

Dylan and Victoria made a snowman, he was bigger, but it snowed and he got buried.

We also had the big family pictures done while we were there and the whole family was together.


My sister Randel, Steve, Tyler and Kenadie

My sister Trudy, Charles, Johnathan, Angie, Jaida and Tajuiq(I don't know how to spell his name, he is Charles' son).

My brother whom I forgot to flip the picture, Paul, sorry Paul

And the two that started all of this craziness, my parents

My parents trying to get all the grandkids to sit still and look at the camera.

The original Gibbons Family, before it grew.

The girls and poor Little Boy, that's what we call Paul.

Poor Little Boy got kissed by all of his sisters.
