I Love to See the Temple!
Of all the places the Gadd Family goes, the temple is the most important. Click on the picture to read one woman's feelings about the temple. Her testimony expresses perfectly the way our own family feels about the temple. We are excited to have one of God's holy houses so close to our own!

I Scream, You Scream.....


I am finally posting Mar's birthday........better late then never!

She had an ice cream party, insisted on only inviting girls and had loads of fun!

We colored, hunted for hidden candy, played musical cones & ate lots of sweets!

The ice cream cone cupcakes were a hit, but the ice cream bar was even better.

All the cute girls watching Strawberry Shortcake.

On Marlee's actually birthday, Jan. 21, we had to improvise a little. Daddy was suppose to be getting home from a trip and we had a fun night out planned. Instead, it snowed and snowed, Dad didn't make it home and Mom didn't want to take everyone out in the nasty weather.
Nana saved the day!
We got a giant package that day from Nana with presents from her and Uncle Jared. We also had a present from Grandpa Karl.
We set them out all pretty like, opened them when the big girls got home from school and had a special treat. Presents and treats always make for a good day if even if Dad's not there to celebrate.

Happy 4th Birthday Marlee!!!!!

Let it Snow!

Let it snow & snow some more!
This is what we got from the huge snow storm that hit the country last week.
The girl's bedroom window the night of the storm.
They are on the second floor!

The snow on our front porch the next morning.

Digging out!
Cooper loves doing "man stuff."

My Brother

I've been meaning to post this for a year now and finally got the kick in the pants I needed when I went to my mailbox today.
I got the best birthday card from my thoughtful brother.
How do I have a brother you ask? See this previous post: Season of Miracles
Recieving his card reminded me how much I love him and how grateful I am to have him in my life. I am so proud of him and all that he accomplishes everyday.
New Year's Eve 2009
In 2009, while in Utah, we attended a New Year's Eve Pow Wow with Tanner and his family. We all had a blast and enjoyed seeing Tanner in his element.
What a handsome guy!

This video was taken at the beginning of the Pow Wow. That is Maggie in the pink next to Tanner , my nephew Colby behind her in the black and my dad behind them all.

Tanner participating with the other grass dancers. He's the one taking it easy in his chair.

Happy Birthday Booch!

What else is there to say about this adorable little boy other then we love him!
He gives his sisters goodnight kisses everynight, asks for T.V. and chocolate milk every morning and makes us laugh and smile all day long.
We had a little Toy Story get together with some friends on New Year's Day. (Cooper's B-day)

Cooper loved opening his gifts and playing with his friends.
The kids enjoyed pb&j, cheese, & grapes for lunch.

With delicious mint oreo cupcakes for dessert.
Happy 2nd Birthday Boochy Boy!
