David's Graduation

I know that I am WAAAAAY behind, since this is old news, but whether it is late or not this is worth shouting off the Roof tops...
On December 12, 2008 my dear loving husband of 4 years 364 days became a
BYU-IDAHO GRADUATE!!!
After all the hard work, and the MONTH of having a stressed out, grumpy, no sleep husband, (I guess I should be nice, I was probably the same way my last semester) Dave graduated from BYU-Idaho with a BS in History with a German minor.  

Not that I don't love BYU-Idaho, but it is going to be so nice to do something different for awhile.  If Dave's plans go as planned we will be going to grad-school (somewhere) this fall, but even that will be nice, cause it will be something different.  Anyway... Here are some fun pictures of David and his FAN CLUB!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVIE-POO!!

Today is my wonderful Husband's birthday, and it is a little know fact that he LOVES people to tell him HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!  So, I want to see how many people we can get to tell him, so if you get a minute, call Dave's cell phone and tell him "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!"  (Most of you will probably get his voice mail, but if you do leave your message there!)  Anyway...






We kind out went out for David's birthday last night, because we wanted to go do something.  We went to Winger's and ate dinner and then went to get desert.  We had so much fun at SubZero for Elena's birthday, that we decided to go again.  This time we took Lisa, Mark, Carson, and Sydnee with us.  Ella and Carson had a lot of fun watching the smoke from the liquid Nitrogen again.  (I would have taken a pic of Dave, but he wouldn't let me)  It wasn't much of a birthday party, but we still go to eat good ice cream, and the kids got to watcth the smoke.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HONEY!!!  I promise nobody thinks you are old... (even though you ARE almost 30)

TWILIGHT

Last night I got to go with Lisa and our friend Erin to a huge TWILIGHT premere party in Pocatello.  For those of you who know me well, you know that I haven't read any of the books... (evil music fills the room as people prepare to burn me at the stakes) Lisa has had tickets to this party for a long time, but she talked me and Erin into going the week of the party.

The party was soooo over the top!!  We met at a church where they picked us up in a limo and took us to this huge house on the hill.  When we got there we got T-shirts and were ushered into the house.  While we were there we had some food, got vampire bite tatooes on our necks, and big on a silent auction.  Soon after this they picked us up with the limo again, and took us to the movie.  When we got to the theatre they opened the limo door and we got to walk up the red carpet. 
The movie was really good.  Being a "non-reader" (hello my name is Brook and I admit that I am a "non-reader") I had a lot different perspective on the movie than the people who had read the books.  I really liked it a lot.  I loved how Stephanie Meyers captured the innocent side of love rather than the sexual Hollywood version of love that is normally depicted in movies.
After the movie we rode in the limo back to the house where we ate soup and desert.  We had a great time, and we even made the news!!  Check out this video and see if you can find us in the film.

Sub Zero Ice Cream

For Elena's actual birthday, we decided that we were going to try sub zero ice cream.  It is a ice cream place where they make your ice cream right in front of you.  For all of you Cold Stone fans, do not get pictures of a marble slab dancing in front of your eyes, this is different.  At Cold Stone there are ice cream flavors already mixed, then you add things to them.  This store starts with good old cream.  They poor it in the bowl right in front of you.  Then you add as many flavorings to the cream that you want.  There are about a hundred thing to choose from.  Then you get to add mix-ins (candy, brownies, etc.).  But, the COOLEST part comes last!!  They freeze your ice cream with liquid Nitrogen, so it looks like dry ice while they are mixing it.  Ella absolutely loved it, because the guy making her ice cream kept pushing the smoke towards her and making her hands cold!!  The store in Idaho Falls is full of big screen TVs and even has a fire place in the back with a nice cushy couch in front of it.  Sounds like the perfect make-out... I mean Date spot to me!!  Anyway... so if you are looking for something fun to do as a family or on a date night, try Sub Zero Ice Cream, it is pretty awesome!

Happy 1st Birthday

I can't believe how time flies!!  A year ago, I was getting ready to head the
 hospital, and now my baby is ALREADY a year old!!  Where does the time go?  Since Elena's birthday was on Monday, and Dave's family wanted to come up for her party we had her party on Saturday.  She had a whole bunch of cousins there, and we had a GREAT time!! Elena got some really fun toys, some cute clothes, and she must be growing up cause her aunt Stephanie got her hot pants!!  (I have to get a better picture of the hot pants, cause the one I have does not do them justice.)

Elena's new adventure

video
Elena has decided that it is great fun to walk around the room!  Usually she has to be pushing something, but just this week she has started walking a little bit by herself.  How fast time goes, I swear just yesterday she was learning to crawl!

ThIs Is HaLlOwEen

From Halloween 2008
This year we were planning on going to Jennifer's (David's sister) annual Halloween party.  This year's theme was Wizard of Oz.  In lieu of David's grandpa passing away, we didn't get to go to the party, but we already had our costumes ready, so we wore them for Halloween.  I was the Tin WOman, Ella was Dorothy, and Elena was a Jitter Bug.  (There is the original screen-play... I promise)  David was nothing......Here are some more pictures from Halloween at the Cederstroms.

Quick California Trip

For those of you who didn't know, David's Grandpa died, so we took a quick trip to California last week.  We drove to Utah Wednesday night, and then drove to California Thusday.  While we were there we spent one day at Disneyland.  The kid's had SOOOO much fun!!  Now, if you are anything like me, you don't have a lot of time to read, and I don't want to write a book.  So, I made this slide show of the highlights of our trip, and I wrote short comments for each of the pictures.
After we went to the funeral on Saturday we went and spent some time @ Laguna Beach.  (The real one, none of this fake Lagoon nonsense)  Stephanie and Catherine took Ella down to the beach, while the rest of us took a nap.  After we got there Ella and I played in the shallow waves for a little while.  However, being the Idaho kids that we are, we got a little more wet than we wanted!!  Here are some pictures of our time @ Laguna.

Prayers for Andy



Say A Prayer For Andy

My brother Andy was having some problems with his leg, hip, and back after he fell a couple weeks ago. He has had one hip replacement due to treatments that he had when he had cancer. To make a long story short, his doctors in Montana thought that it was just his other hip giving out on him, so he decided that he would come see the Doctor here in Idaho that did his first surgery. Before he got here he started fevering, his leg started swelling, and his white blood cell count was elevated. They did an MRI and found an infection deep in his leg. The good news is that he doesn't have to do the hip surgery right now. The bad news is that when they did surgery to drain the infection, they think it is strep, so he is having a hard time. Keep Andy in your prayers, and if you happen to be in Rexburg maybe swing by and say hello.

THE TRAGIC DEATH OF JOSLEN LA BONITA by Cory S. Pondant of the Jefferson Star

Known for her Runway style and Old Hollywood Grace, Joslen La Bonita's life came to a tragic end when she was poisoned on October 2 this year. No one knows exactly what happened, but sources say that she was getting together with a bunch of old friends for a Halloween dinner party when the murder occurred. Witnesses from the scene (shown below) claim that many of the friends had motives, but they didn't beleive that any of them would be capable of killing her. Thus ends another misunderstood life from show-biz...

(For those of you that are worried... we did a murder mystery in our BUNKO group this month)

Why I write...

For those of you that know me very well, you know that I am not much of reader or a writer.  But, I have really got into blogging.  I found this quote on someone else's blog, and I decided that it really explains why I have/write on a blog.

You don't write because you want to say something; you write because you have something to say.  ~F. Scott Fitzgerald

Mountain Dew Lantern Attempt #1

David got this e-mail that has a video of guys making a giant glow stick out of mountain dew, baking soda, and peroxide. Here is...
Attempt #1.
Hypothesis: We are capable of following simple directions and therefore acheive similar results.
Data:

video

Results: Dew fizzes when you add baking soda. Hands smell of vinegar after reaction even though vinegar is not used. The only light we acheived was from my nifty flip flops that light up in the dark.

Conclusion: We did not acheive similar results therefore we cannot follow simple directions. Although we did not get the desired effect we did learn that Dew fizzes when you add baking soda. After further investigation it was discovered that contamination by saliva took place, and could have hampered the results. It was also discovered that the experiment was conducted 30 minutes after opening the said Dew, so if carbonation plays a main factor in the reaction, this may have had a negative effect. It was ALSO discovered that 1/4" of Dew was to be left in the bottle, not 1/4 of the bottle. Our new hypothesis states that if we weren't ding dongs and listened carefully to the directions, the reaction may be duplicated.

The Spider Conspiracy

For those of you who don't know about my spider conspiracy theory, I will elaborate...
From a young age I decided that spiders had a vendetea against me. On occasion a hobo (spider not grocery cart man) would follow me across the floor, or run across my blanket on my bed (true story), or stalk me from beneath the ledge in the bathroom. Well, David thinks that I am insane. He does not understand that all arachnids are out to get me! (Or atleast scare the crap out of me, I actually haven't been bit by any of these perpetrators) Well, tonight I got more proof for my theory....
I saw a huge spider by our porch light, so I wanted to get the camera to zoom in and see if it was a catface or something else. So I went out and took a few pictures to look at when all-of-a-sudden the spider dropped all the way down to the steps. It scared me, so I jumped back down the stairs. No sooner than I stepped off the first stair, then the spider started to run to the edge of the same stair. So I stepped down to the ground and yelled to David. (Like a whimpy girl I might add. Pretty sad calling to my injured husband!) Then the spider followed me down all 3 stairs! He was after me I tell you!!!
Needless to say David got the cats and the dog away from the door, and I dashed up the stairs and in the door before the spider could wrap me up in it's web of death!!

Franken-Dave

This is one of those pictures where you are supposed to look close to see if there is anything out of the ordinary. No, it isn't that Dave doesn't have a shirt on (trust me that is relatively ordinary), or that he is pasty white at the end of summer. If you look closely at his right shoulder, you will see that my husband, my one true love, is turning into...
Franken-Dave!!!
(Evil laughs fill the room as young children run screaming "mommy!")
Ok, so the real story is that Dave got shoulder surgery on Tuesday to repair the damages he aquired playing tag with the ocean and lifting lopt-sided boxes over his head at work. Although his mental stability is in question, (I can say this, because he threatened to punch the nurse that wouldn't let him out of bed in the recovery room) his pain level is staying pretty low due to the high doses of controlled substances that are being ingested at regular intervals. If you would like to contribute to the taunting of this poor man, feel free to comment. Otherwise, all donations can be sent to the "HDRHSF" (Help Dave Regain His Sanity Fund) @ 375 W 1st S Rigby, ID.

Ella's 1st Day of Pre-School

This year Ella is going to Little Chickadee Preschool. Awhile ago they had an open house and let the kids come in and find their name on a chick and check out the classroom, so when the 1st day of school came Ella was really excited!
video
Last Wednesday was the day she finally got to go to school. When we got there David walked her into the house, (The preschool is in the basement of my step-sister Cajsa's house) and they headed down to the preschool. When we got to the preschool room Ella got to find her chair. Although she can't read, she does know what her name looks like, so she was so excited to find the chair with her name.
Her teachers told me that she was quite shy if they talked directly to her, but that when they asked questions to the entire class she was glad to answer. Doesn't sound like anyone I know... (I was/am always REALLY shy as a kid!)
It is crazy to think that I have a 3 year old, and that she is already going to school! Where'd the time go?

Dancing Babies...

The other day I was watching Lisa's 3 youngest kids while she worked. While they were here I put Elena and Sydnee in the crib for a minute. While they were there they decided that it was fun to hold on to the rail and dance. (please forgive my improv dance music)

video

Another Mess

As is common place with a baby, Elena kept having the intense desire to run her face while she was eating her vegetables tonight. The end result looks like someone was throwing food at her, not feeding it to her. OH WELL, thus is the joys of motherhood!!

Fighting Like Cats & Dogs

Have you ever wondered what the phrase "fighting like cats and dogs" really means? Well, after several months of observation we have come up with the answer. Watch how the smaller cat ignores the fact that he is only about 1/3 the size of the dog and yet refuses to give up the fight. This by the way is almost a daily occurence in our household. We have come to the conclusion that this is the natural order of things. This is also one of the many reasons that our house remains a mess despite our efforts to clean it almost daily. Anyways, enjoy the show.

The Living Planet Aquarium

I just realized tonight that I didn't post anything about The Living Planet Aquarium in Sandy. Who would have thunk that you could see Sharks and Sting Rays in Utah? Anyway... When we were down in Utah last month, Grandpa (Papa) and Grandma Cederstrom took us to go and see the aquarium. The Living Planet Aquarium is just a small version of what they hope to build after they get more donations. (right now it is actually in an old grocery store) Although it is pretty small we had a lot of fun looking at the animals.





Ella loved looking at all the animals, especially when Grandma Cederstrom would tell her what they were, and help her touch them. This aquarium had a crab in it that Ella just thought was hilarious. It was a rare moment when Crabby wasn't a bad thing! Ha ha....ok bad joke moving on...

Ella's favorite part was definitely looking at the sharks. If we would have let her she would have looked at the sharks ALL DAY LONG!!






Although we had a lot of fun, the main thing that us adults got out of the trip was an intense desire to eat sea food!!

Landon Landon He's Our Man...

This summer we have spent 1 or 2 nights a week cheering on Landon and Ethan at their tee-ball/soccer games. It has been a lot of fun!! Here are a few pictures of us Cheering on Landon at last week's game.

Bear Lake, BEAR LAKE, La-La La-La La-La

Uh... Went a little crazy with the title there...

A couple weeks ago (yes I'm behind again...) we had a reunion in Draper, so on the way we decided we would swing by Bear Lake and see uncle Ted. It was Elena's first trip to lake, and once we figured out how to make her happy, she had a pretty good time.

One of the coolest things about Bear Lake this year, is that Dave finally has a child that is big and brave enough to go in the water with him. Ella had a great time playing in the water! Eventually she got cold, but she doesn't have any insulation on her whole body!!

The Mystery of Mischief

From Elena

Have you ever seen the commercial where the lady is talking about how stains mysteriously happen or mysteriously cover themselves up? That is exactly what I thought of when I saw the scene before I took this picture. A 8 month old baby (that can barely sit up) mysteriously reaches into a box (that is out of arms reach) and strings yarn around her own head and half-way across the room... hmmm... something doesn't quite add up.

Her Father's Eyes

It is interesting how a song can get you thinking about things that you normally wouldn't think about. The other day I was downloading a bunch of songs that I like to classify as "daddy" songs. They were various songs that talked about dad's and their little girls etc. Well, I happened upon a song that I have heard many times before, but not for a long time called "Father's Eyes" by Amy Grant. It talks about a daughter that says the greatest compliment that she could receive was for someone to say that she had her father's eyes. The song procedes to talk about all the things that her father's eyes were capable of seeing: eyes that find the good in things, eyes that find a source of help, eyes full of compassion, etc.
Now, when I was younger, people used to tell me all the time that I had my dad's eyes. As much as I knew that it was true I didn't really think much about it at the time, but when I heard this song the other day it really got me thinking. I don't know that I had my "father's eyes" in the sense that I could see all the wonderful things in people that he always did, but at least they looked like his. Knowing I had my father's, never meant so much to me, until that day.
Now I have two beautiful baby girls, both with beautiful eyes.

Ella will forever be able to say that she has her father's eyes. Both Ella and David have the most beautiful sea blue eyes that could melt the coldest heart. (I should know, I get pretty cold sometimes!) It's no wonder that people comment both of their eyes on a regular basis. Someday I hope that I can look into Ella's eyes and see that she has the same open-minded and charity driven eyes that her father has always had. Sometimes I can't believe how patient and loving Dave can be. I nit-pick and bug him a lot more than I should sometimes, but somehow he still puts up with me and the kid's and loves us anyway. I could never thank him enough for giving Ella the best example for what her eyes could be.
Elena on the other hand has been blessed with beautiful, dark, brown eyes, which do not look the slightest like David's, but they are just like both of her grandfathers. Dark soul searching eyes, that make you feel the love that she has for you. Both my dad and Dave's dad have/had these same warm welcoming eyes. It amazes me how both of them saw the good in people, in a way that I can't even imagine.

I remember my dad always helping everyone, no matter their race, intelligence level, or opinion. In Dave's dad's eyes I have seen an extremely loving grandpa who has stepped up and been there for my kid's when they really needed it. It is so nice to know that your kid's have grandparents that will watch over them, love them, and maybe even spoil them once in awhile. Thank you Mike, you're the best!!

My new hope is that these two beautiful girls grow up that they can see the examples that these wonderful father's have set for them, and they can do more than just "look" like their "father's eyes", but also see all the wonderful things that these father's can see.

Elena's mess


Need I say more...

HORSE CAMP 2008

(I know that I have been running about 2 weeks behind on posting this summer, but bear with me I will eventually catch up!)
As is tradition my mom and I went and taught at Alpine 4-H horse camp again this year, only THIS YEAR we got to take Mickell, Ella, and Elena with us. Plus, we got to hang out with Tracy's family that she brought up. But, the most exciting thing about Camp this year was that Ella got to do Cloverbuds classes, which included making her own stick horse (Belle) to ride on a trail ride and through the poles and barrels. Here are a few pictures of Ella, Trisha, and Kaylee (her cousins) riding their stick horses.

After we were done teaching classes on Friday David, Lisa, Landon, Ethan, Carson, Sydnee, and Madelyn all came up to go to "THE" DANCE with us. We had tons of fun dancing, and the kids just loved being thrown in the air by Misty and her "friend" Mike. Although it is common known fact that what happens at horse camp stays at horse camp, here is just a small peak of some of the fun that we had...

Elena's 1st Campfire

Elena went to her very first campfire while we were at horse camp, and here are a few pictures.

2008 Tamara Boyle Reunion or BOYLE's INVADE TETON VALLEY!

On the 4th of July this year, the poor town of Driggs was invaded by the Ruffy Rowdy Posse known as the BOYLE GANG! We camped at the fairgrounds, so that we could get up and see the hot air balloons the next day. While we were waiting for it to get dark, we played a ROWDY game of baseball.

Although we had tons of fun playing and camping the night before, we woke up to them telling us that it was too windy to launch the air balloons... We spent the rest of the day watching fiddlers at a fiddling competition, visiting the arts and crafts fair in Victor (where my uncle Nick sold his butt gourd... long story...), and playing around at the cabin.

While we were at the cabin, we had a HAPPY UNBIRTHDAY PARTY for all the grand kids. They each drew a name and bought a present, since they are rarely together on each other's birthdays. The best part about the party was the awesome-ly AWESOME cake that their favorite aunt (who shall remain un-named do to humility reasons) made for them.

For more information regarding cakes that the pictured children's FAVORITE aunt has made, please visit www.frostedwithlove.blogspot.com

Later that night Grandma gave all the kids a MILLION light sticks (ok maybe not a million) and this is what we witnessed...


After late hours of pinochle that night...

The next day we cleaned up and got ready to go home, but before we went home Mickell was kind of enough to provide us with some good old fashioned fiddling, and you know us... we couldn't help ourselves...

Redneck Intuition revived



What do you do when you are camping and you don't have a bib? This week we were at Horse Camp and I was feeding Elena some baby food. Grandma Tamara decided that Elena needed a bib, so she got a diaper bag and cut arm holes in it for Elena to wear. Chaulk it up to Redneck intuition, but the bib actually worked quite well!

Helpful Hint #1

Don't put a battery in your pocket with spare change, unless you want to start your pants on fire.
Funny story... we were driving in the car tonight and David was talking on the phone to Lisa when all of a sudden he started slapping his pants and trying to get something out of his pocket. He told Lisa his pants were on fire and hung up the phone. Well, his pants weren't on fire but the change in his pocket was touching both poles of the battery, so it started to get very VERY hot. You never know what you will learn by just putting a battery in your pocket.

My Redneck Intuition


It is amazing sometimes how desperation results in inspiration. Last night I wanted to put Elena in the tub with Ella, but the only thing I have for Elena to sit in is her baby tub that takes up the entire tub, so I got looking around for something she could sit in. What-do-you-know! I found this crate and it worked perfect!!! OF COURSE I had to stay right by the tub in case she fell, but she actually sat up in it fine the whole time!! It comes to show, if you need a solution look around and you'll usually find something that will work. Call me a redneck, but I think it was pretty clever!

HOT-WILD-FUN in the HOT-SUMMER-SUN

Today was the first time in a long time that it has been warm enough (and we have been home) that we thought it would be worth it to set up our little swimming pools. Ella immediately got in and started getting wet, and between her and Dave they had me soaked. Elena and Macy took a little bit longer to decide they liked the water. We splashed and played in the little splash pool, and then... the WILD BUNCH showed up!!!

My mom was watching Lisa's boys today, and I told her she could bring them to come and play in the water with us, and when they played, THEY PLAYED!! They had tons of fun splashing and run through the water, but most of all throwing and kicking balls at David's head. But, it was a lot of fun watching everyone have so much fun in the water.

THANK GOODNESS FOR SUMMER!!!!
