Cartoon Theme Dance

We had a Stake dance with the theme of cartoon characters,
Dan - Hades (Hercules)
Sarah - Merida (Brave)
Thore - Thor ( Of course, who else would he be?)
 Merida and Cinderella
 Russell and Carl from "UP"
 Hercules, Meg, and Hades
 Hades with Violet Incredible (Incredibles)
 Tweedle Dee and Thor
 Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip (Sleeping Beauty)
Dan drew this picture board, He did an awesome job! 
(If you see any odd parts that is my fault)

Dan's Birthday, and Silly Cousins

I can't believe he is 17!
 They grow up all too fast. Dan loves pumpkin pie so that has been his birthday cake for the last few years.

Just a few pictures of Eric and Nate

Meet Thore

The beginning of Sept. we gave the idea of an exchange student a little thought, thinking maybe spring or summer for a couple of months. So as we were filling out the application the rep. for this area called and told us they were desperately trying to place a couple of kids and asked if we would host. We were  taken aback by the suddenness of it all. Tues. it was a possibility, Wed. it was not and Thur. night Thore arrived from Germany.

He arrived on Thursday and his 17th birthday was Sunday. Sarah made him a cake and we celebrated all together.
 The American pronunciation of his name is Thor so Dan couldn't resist getting him a Thor hammer for his birthday.

In his own words " I am awesome" and he is pretty awesome.
