Ashton Snowboarding in Utah

Snowboarding at Snowbasin
We drove to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with Ethan's parents. We had such a great time. The day after thanksgiving we headed up to snowbasin and Ethan took Ashton snowboarding. He had so much fun we couldn't get him off the mountain. I think he did a total of 9 runs and still wanted to go again! He was getting pretty good at stopping himself on his heel edge, next time we'll tackle the toe edge. I can't believe our 4 year old is snowboarding, it's crazy what these little kids can do- Mommy and Daddy are so proud!

Play day in Chico

Fun at the Park
We went to visit Ethan's cousin Caleb in Chico. Stacey and I took all the kids to the park while Ethan and Caleb went hunting and fishing. We had so much fun. Thanks for letting us stay!

Happy Halloween

may the force be with you
So we decided to try a family theme for halloween this year. Ashton loves star wars so that was our inspiration. Ashton was Luke Skywalker, Noah was Yoda, I was a very pregnant Princess Leia(sp?) and Ethan was Obi wan Kanobi.

Look at me Mom!

Recent knitting attempts...

Hats, hats and more hats
So I've recently taken up knitting (thank you Mia for patiently teaching me:). And my boys always want me to make them something, so these are a few of the hat attempts that I have made, it's always tricky to get the right size, but I'm slowly figuring it out.

Cornia Family Reunion 2010

Fishing in the stream
Ethan took Ashton fishing in the stream behind the cabins at the reunion and he hooked a "big" one, see for yourself.

Good old Fashioned Pie eating Contest
Ashton and Noah had fun trying to eat our chocolate cream pie. I too was pretty eager, but alas, I think we barely made a dent. We definitely were not the winners of this family event. We sure had fun trying!

Ashton's 4th birthday party

Opening presents
All of Ashton's friends were more than happy to help open presents. It was so fun to have so many friends there to help us celebrate. Ashton is in swim gear since we had a water balloon fight earlier in the party. Ashton was really grateful for all of the gifts he received. THanks everyone for a great day!!!

Ashton's new skateboard

Here is another video of Ashton trying out some tricks on his new board. He certainly takes after his Dad.

Ashton's 4th birthday

We went to a local park so Ashton could test out his new board, it's amazing what little kids can do.

Fun child's apron

I made this for my friend Farah's daughter Leila. It seems like it's been forever since I've sewn something that is not a blanket:)

Another Quilting Adventure

The center squares with the different moving vehicles, trucks cars, planes, etc. were hand stitched by my sister Shaneil (isn't she amazing!). I put the blocks together in the quilt and used my free-motion foot to do all the quilting.

I made this quilt for my nephew Hunter. My sister Emily picked out the fabric and I've spent the last few months putting it all together. This is the biggest quilt I think I've made. It should fit on a queen size bed. I hope Hunter likes it.
