Spencer has been climbing on EVERYTHING. He really wanted to see all of the pictures.

He’s a funny boy.

2014-01-22 22.18.17small

We got a fancy new tablet when we changed phone plans. It’s no Apple, but it works pretty good.

2014-01-22 19.20.41small

He wanted to read the book. No fear.

2014-01-21 18.37.37small

Oh, hey.

Grandpa Hancock’s 90th birthday was the 23rd. He is the most amazing man. He never stops working hard and smiling through it all. I know he misses Grandma, but he keeps going strong. This picture was taken on their honeymoon.

2014-01-23 12.43.13small

This picture was when he was in the Merchant Marines. Such a handsome man.

2014-01-23 10.40.35small

There was a very packed puppet show at the library. Spencer actually liked and watched it!

Playing with Seth during Priesthood meeting.

2014-01-13 16.05.28small

We went outside with Covel to enjoy some fresh air for a few minutes. Spencer loved his little trike!

2014-01-13 09.38.07small

Monopoly Deal was his obsession of the week. Tom taught him which card says, “Go.” He says the color of every card is blue.

2014-01-12 20.17.25small

Our poor, depressed snowman.

2014-01-12 17.13.21small

Hanging in the van with his cousins.

2014-01-13 17.27.09small

So I turned on the oven to preheat, and when I opened it to put our cookies in there was a fire blazing. Yikes! Good thing we have these little fire extinguishers. Such an emergency preparedness blessing! The fire was out in seconds. The clean-up took much longer.

2014-01-14 13.50.55small

Tom met up with several uncles and cousins to give Uncle Lynn a blessing at the hospital. He’s been having issues with his thyroid and stress with a lawsuit pending against ACS.

2014-01-14 13.49.29small

I decided I wanted old pictures of our parents and grandparents. Pretty fun!

2014-01-14 10.21.47small

I watched Sam Whitaker for a little while this week. He sat in the same spot for two hours. I moved him twice to give him a change of scenery. Spencer was a little confused as to why he wasn’t playing with him.

2014-01-13 23.11.59small

This is the fire damage collage.

2014-01-14 14.33.02small

We also got to play with Zach and Torbin this week! They are the cutest little triplets in their matching Christmas shirts. They play really well together. It was a fun afternoon. Spencer was sleeping when they got there, and Torbin asked at least 100 times when we could wake Spencer up. It was adorable.

2014-01-15 09.21.57small

Watching the garbage truck!

2014-01-14 18.34.02small

Messy “cheese!”

2014-01-14 15.29.57small

Playing in the shower with cousins.

2014-01-14 15.25.04small

Zach and Spence were very interested in watching Torbin go to the bathroom. It was hilarious.

2014-01-16 10.45.28small

Story time at the library!

2014-01-17 19.18.55small

Our little computer nerd.

2014-01-17 17.05.55-2small

I love his sweet face.

2014-01-17 11.59.01small

I cut his hair for my first time. It needs to be fixed, but at least I got his crazy bangs under control. (He was watching a show and wouldn’t smile.)

A handsome picture of my son at a wedding reception.

2014-01-06 19.44.10small

We had the Dalton’s over for a little dessert and game night. Spencer LOVED the chocolate pudding pie that Diane brought. He literally licked it clean.

2014-01-06 12.42.03small

We bought Spencer these awesome learning DVD’s. He’s really loved the color video so far. He calls every color “blue.”

2014-01-06 09.07.08small

Reading seat.

2014-01-07 19.31.14small

We finally bought lamps for the front room! It makes it look a tiny bit classier.

2014-01-08 16.47.49small

Just watching his color show!

2014-01-08 16.23.36small

We finally had a good afternoon to play in the snow and build a snowman. Spencer loved it! Covel and Amy were out there with us.

2014-01-08 15.42.05small

Spencer stole Covel’s lawn mower and was having a blast.

2014-01-07 20.05.00small

Our little computer nerd. He steals my computer almost every day, and taps away like he’s a little adult.

2014-01-08 17.07.04small

I thought it would be fun to draw on the white board. Spencer was more interested in how the marker lid came on and off. He’s our engineer. He wants to know how everything works!

2014-01-10 19.21.43-1small

FHE game night. We played the monkey game we got for Christmas.

2014-01-10 19.17.26small

Spencer doesn’t quite have the hang of it…but we had fun.

2014-01-10 16.52.27small

I try to mop, and this is what happens.

2014-01-09 18.03.58small

Jake and Brooke Breen invited us and the Griffeths over for dinner. Their house is amazing. He designed it himself. It was a nice night. Spencer had a blast playing downstairs in the toy room, so I was down there a lot.

2014-01-11 12.23.36small

Sitting on Jimmy’s unicorn. He was pretty pleased with himself.

2014-01-11 20.49.15small

We went to the Natural History Museum and had a great time! They have a special exhibit called, “Tinkering” there right now. The boys had a blast finding lots of interesting things to do. Hopefully, I can take Spencer back soon to play.

2014-01-11 19.08.32small

He got to dig in the sand for fossils.

2014-01-11 18.31.37small

And put a dinosaur bones puzzle together. He had a great time.

This picture was taken after Spencer LOCKED me out of the house!! We had just gotten home from Walmart, and I put him in the house (with my keys and phone) and went back into the garage to grab the groceries. He promptly flipped the lock and completely locked me out! I had no idea he could even reach the lock! I ran to Amy Woody’s to use her cell phone to call Tom, and she ended up getting the Bishop (next door to her) to come pick my lock. It was quite the event. Luckily, Bishop (who happens to be a fire fighter) randomly knew how to pick locks. I can’t believe my little stinker.

2013-12-31 11.42.31small

We went to the mall, and Spencer found these cool cars. He was pretty excited.

2013-12-30 17.00.19small

Spencer loves his friend Covel. He calls him Coco.

2013-12-30 16.29.30small

 Just a little light reading.

2013-12-31 19.21.16small

Happy New Years Eve! Basically, this is all we did. We played one quick charades-type game with Jon and Anna. 2013 was a wonderful year. I’m excited to have an even better 2014.

2013-12-31 23.56.41small


2014-01-01 00.07.51smallStarting out the year the right way!
2014-01-02 09.10.03small

 Unfortunately, Spencer watched me tune the guitar. He wouldn’t leave it alone after that! I don’t think it will ever be in tune again.

2014-01-01 10.17.01small

 Sharing daddy’s smoothie.

2014-01-02 16.51.46small

 My little sous-chef. I know it’s not safe to let him play in there, but he sure loves it. It keeps him occupied while I cook dinner.

2014-01-03 11.45.31-1small

My little sweetheart.

2014-01-04 17.11.59small

We went to the Traverse Mountain Outlets. Spencer immediately found some friends to people watch with.
