Spring Break 2013

Doug had the exciting opportunity to travel to Disneyland with his band this year during spring break, so the kids and I decided to take off to Utah for a trip as well.

We always try to make our 8 hour tedious car ride as fun as possible.  The following pictures were taken at a rest stop:

The next day we went to a bounce house with our cousins.  We had so much fun!

Grandma Farr turns 68

We were lucky again this year to have Grandma & Grandpa Farr come to visit during Grandma's birthday.  We celebrated with a party and food!  Happy Birthday Grandma Farr!

"The King and I"

Kaylee and Lexi were able to participate in Greeley Central's 2013 High School Musical.  They played twin children in the production of "The King and I".  They had a really fun time.  The girls had to temporarily dye their hair black each night (for the dress rehearsals and performances), which took a really long time.  At the end of the rehearsals, they were going to bed close to midnight.  Very exhausting, but a very enjoyable memory that we will never forget!

Lexi's Birthday

Lexi had a great 10th birthday. She wanted a rainbow cake, surrounded by kitkats with reeses pieces on top and tied with a bow.  It turned out great!  I know I had more pictures of her birthday, but I can't find them.  They must have somehow been deleted.  :(

2012 Family Update

Here is an end of year review of the Farr Family:

Noah turned two in April.  He brings with him every joy of a two year old...from saying new sentences to coloring and destroying things.  He is such a delight!

Mason turned 5 in April.  He started Kindergarten this year and is doing great with his numbers, letters, and reading.  He loves to draw the planets in order and list them.  He yearns for knowledge and is always asking us lots of questions:

Lexi is in fourth grade this year.  She loves to be involved in activities such as Silver Falcon Singers (Extra Choir group at school), Battle of the Books, and Activity Days.  She is a great helper at home and wants to always follow the rules.  For Lexi...everything is black and white:

Kaylee started Middle School this year and has had no trouble adjusting.  It's all about friends, and make-up (which is only mascara and lip gloss), and boys, and texting, and more friends.  She is in 6th grade this year.   Some of the classes she is taking this year are band (trombone), advanced math (7th grade), and a class where she learns different languages.  

Jordan is enjoying his last year in middle school.  He plays the trumpet in band and really enjoys it.  He loves Math and is just about to start an advanced course.  He likes going to Young Men's and being active in his church activities. He is currently the Deacons Quorum President.

Kristi keeps busy being a mom, working as a pharmacy technician at Target, and working as the 2nd Counselor in the Primary Presidency.

Doug is always busy.  He continues to work at Greeley Central High School as the Band Director.  He loves working with the teenagers.  His band attends most of the football games and basketball games. In 2012, Doug directed the musical Anything Goes, and his Wind Ensemble scored straight ones (perfect scores) in competition. Marching band did well in the fall but fell short of going to state quarter finals by just 4 points.The bands have many performances throughout the year and they are fast approaching the 2013 Musical... the King and I. Instead of directing this spring Doug will be playing the percussion parts. He also has been playing timpani in the Greeley Chamber Orchestra and they recently performed Mozarts Requiem.  In addition, he has a few music callings in church (plays the organ and is the Stake Music Coordinator).

We recently moved from a 3 bedroom home to a 5 bedroom home (still in Greeley).  The kids are enjoying their own finished bedrooms.  (Two of them were in an unfinished portion of the basement in the old house).  We are still getting settled but love the new carpet and extra space.

(I took 12 family pictures...these were the best ones...ha ha ha. I guess I need to learn how to photo shop :))

We had a wonderful 2012 and look forward to a new year.
