Parowans Birthday Celebration~

Every Year on January 13th, the entire town gets together and celebrates Parowans Birthday. It'a a big deal for parowan. Everybody comes out and watches the entire elementary and Highschool sing songs and dance. The kids are encouraged to dress up in western wear or Pioneer clothing. Kindergarten through 12th grade kids individually perform a western/pioneer type of dance starting with the kindergarteners with Eliza Jane, up to the seniors and the Swing. It can get pretty wild with the girls being tossed around in the air by the Senior boys and all. It really is pretty cute. This was Maci's first year and Tanners second year with him doing the Hokey Pokey. They perform it in The Highschool Gym . At the end they do a grand march and the two outstanding citizens of Parowan along with the Mayor and his wife and so on. Before you know it they and all of the kids in both schools are holding hands and parading around to music. It sounds a little cheesy, but it really is kinda neat.

Happy New Year!

CHEERS! Tanner and His Cousin Mac.

Every Year we celebrate New Years Eve at Dougs
Uncles house in Paragonah. We start at five with
all kinds of snacks, Prime Rib Dinner around seven
and end with Fireworks at Twelve. The kids really
love it. The only thing that would make it better
is if my family was their.

"PUT EM UP" Don't mess with this little guy!
Heres just a few more pics from our Sylvester Christmas pics. Britt loved his Hulk Hands. He loves punching.

Family is everything!

Well, These were taken almost a month ago. I am not really on the ball lately with keeping my blog updated. I do love these pictures. We had so much fun with each other. I just wish we could do it more often. Thats why we cherish these moments.
