My blog is not dead!
I might actually try to start updating on a more than quarterly basis, but we'll see. I've probably got to make an effort take more pictures as well, since this has become pretty much a picture and caption journal.
Yesterday I spent a few hours putting in a new center garage door. It didn't go as well as I hoped. I think I need a professional to come and fix it so it operates more smoothly.
Above is a self portrait Penny did of herself at church today. I think it captures her well.
Below is Penny and I waiting at Seattle Children's for her yearly NF1 MRI, it take up half a day to get the MRI and then wait for the results and have a consultation, but as long as things keep going well I am happy to spend that time.
1: Have fun
2: Be respectful
3: Be a good teammate.
The girls on the team are Penny, Eva, Lilly, Cassidy, Skyler, Porter, Mia and Maya. It's been mostly fun with only a few tears after getting hit in the face with the ball. I'm sure I have more pictures of all the girls on a later post.
Here is Penny with Judy and Hops. Penny pretty much only asked for Beanie Boo's. I think I am going to look back on these simple Christmas' with fondness in a few years.

Tormo's face pretty much sums up my feeling after this long Thanksgiving weekend.
Last night Penny and I continued our new Christmas tradition of making a Christmas pictures and framing them.
Tormo continues to be a good beast.
But these beasts are by far my favorite.
We went Black Friday shopping and Penny found the Husky hat thing, and Eva already had the fox one.
Eva and Penny all ready to go.
Here's Penny on her birthday. We went shopping and picked her up this big plushy pillow. Her name is Kelly.
I finally put up a pull up bar in my garage. I got some 1" pipe from Home Depot and some floor flanges and screwed it into some of the rafters.
This is our Bishop (Porter's) little boy. I took this at the park on a random night were we saw them there and played a little baseball.
Anyway, life is great and things are going well.

I cooked my first sous vide brisket. It turned out pretty well. It was slightly more done than I think I will make it in the future, but for my first try it wasn't too bad.
Then I smoked it on the grill for about 3 hours.
Random pictures of the kids from the last few weeks.
Right before school started for the kids, we went to the Great Wolf Lodge for a night and two days.
The kids even got to do the Magi Quest courtesy of a bribe from Aunt KT for riding the Howling Tornado.
Finally, we had our annual trip to Kalaloch.
