OK.... it's been about a year since we've (I) have updated our blog. So, I'm going to try and do it in a minute... or should I say, "1 year in 20 pictures... or so." When I first started this, I told myself I would pick only 1 picture from each event, so I wouldn't bore anyone.... but have you ever tried to narrow down a major event in your life to just one picture?

October: We'll start here... with proof that Dana is smiling and is at Disneyland. I think he secretly enjoyed it.
We rode Splash Mountain about 5 times in order to get the perfect picture. I hint another slight smile on Dana.

Newport Beach:
BEAUTIFUL! BLAST! (except when Cooper got stung twice by bees)

Cooper the Ninja

Carly the Nerd

Taylor the Zebra

This is how we spent our Saturdays this past fall... watching Cooper play football.

Cooper plays middle linebacker. He maybe small... but he can hit!

The team!


McKenzie Goff our neice took our family pictures this year. We had a blast and she did a great job.

Love the yellow and black.
And we didn't have any major "What to wear drama"... maybe its because I got a new coat out of the deal. Saw it at Target and said, "I have to have that."
Christmas morning. We make the kids wait on the stairs until we're all ready.

Christmas Eve:
We drive up to Santa every Christmas Eve, while he's on a break in Alpine.

It wouldn't be Christmas without the grade school program....

gingerbread houses...

crazy sweaters (she actually wore this to school.)

and good friends....

PROM (yes this was in March - but I forgot to put it in)


St. George - a great getaway in the middle of the winter. Thanks Jeppesen's.


FEBRUARY: Snowbird
My two boarders!

This is what I love about Utah. One week you can be enjoying the sun in St. George... the next the snow at Snowbird. Thanks Jason and Shelley for the invite!

Cooper is still skiing. He really wants to board. Maybe next year.

They had to have those hats. I think this is the only time they've worn them. They each owe me $30.

Cooper's 8th Birthday

We took all his buddies to Jump On It.

Cooper says this is the best cake ever (Snikers from Macey's- really?)

A YEAR IN A MINUTE (continued)

Taylor's Senior Pictures:
When we got her pictures taken, that's when it finally hit me that she's graduating from High School and moving on.
She's going to BYU-I where she got a scholarship and hopes to get a Nursing degree (but that might change, so don't quote me.)

MARCH: Cooper gets baptized
We're so proud of him. It was a great day! (Except Grandma and Grandpa Dille couldn't make the trip. Grandpa D got ill the night before.)

Proud sisters

Proud Parents

Taylor's 18th Birthday - April 23rd
She got what she wanted - AGAIN! A mac laptop.

It was fun to see how excited she got. Even though she knew that's what she would be getting.

Cooper's 1st Pinewood Derby Race.
Coop's car didn't turn out so well. (That's a story for another day, not when I'm trying to do 1 year in 1 minute.) So, we had to borrow a neighbor's.

Utah Peak Performance goes to Reno (and goes a little crazy!)
Gotta have "Firepower"
Love these volleyball girls!

GO McCall!

UP2 after a great win!

APRIL: Cooper and his buddy (Connor) fishing.

Cooper and Riley Nelson - Dana took Cooper to a BYU football camp and they got to meet some of the new faces of BYU.

Cooper and Jake Heaps - BYU Quarterback
Go Cougs!

Michael Buble Concert! It was awesome!

My sister Dustin took me. (Thanks Anton for giving up your ticket.:)

I already blogged about this, but this was too big of an event to not make it in the year in review.
Love my sisters who pushed me to do this.
Love my family for supporting me through my so called training.
Love my parents for giving us all a love of the outdoors and helping us enjoy such a great event.
I just might have to do it again!

The Dille Clan

The Goff Gang


Taylor with G & G Dille

Cooper's war wounds. And he's proud of them! Dana took him paintballing with the neighborhood kids and fathers. He was in Heaven! I dont' know if it was the guns, the friends, or the game that got him more excited.

JULY: Quick day trip to Park City!

Love the Alpine Slide and Coaster!

JULY 26, Carly turns 14
and gets a long board. Let's all cross our fingers for no broken bones in 2010 or 2011.
