UNR Half Time Performance

I arranged for the cheer squads to perform at halftime of a University of Nevada Reno Boys Basketball game. The Mini's were adorable. The crowd just loved them. The Juniors performed an amazing routine. They were right on! The crowd was amazed! I was so proud of them! What a fun night. Juniors and Mini's

Snowmobiling Trip 2010

We had our annual Telford family snowmobiling trip at the new Arco farm this year. At the Arco "trailer" cabin. hehe. It was so nice on the inside. Mijken did an amazing remodeling job. It was so homey and spacious. Hopefully her next project is the outside =) Jared and Christine made the 12 hour trip with me and my 4 kids. Brent had missed too many days of work already this year so he didn't get to come. I'm so glad we went. I love being from a big family. It is great to have my kids be able to be with their family and cousins who share the same values and beliefs that we do. There wasn't a ton of snow. (It did snow 2 feet the day we left.) That's okay because it kept the big boys with us and they spent time giving the kids rides on the snowmobiles. Everyone was there except for Jake and his family and Brent.

How 'bout that Manicure Princess Sicily?
Braden and Jessie started the sickness...puking for about 24 hours then they were fine. It totally made the rounds. Thankfully for our family the only victims were Braden and Jessie but there were plenty of cousins and aunts and uncles and grandma that got it. Sorry everyone!
Sick Jessie in the background...notice the puke bowl at her feet.
