Getting Healthy

One of our many New Year’s Resolutions has been to get back to our healthy lifestyle that has gone by the wayside recently. As a result of this new commitment that Glenn and I have made, there have been a lot of discussions about what it means to be healthy, and how important is it to take care of our bodies because they are a gift from Heavenly Father. The other night, we had some steamed broccoli with our dinner. As I was cleaning up dinner, Stella informed me that she wanted to take some of the leftover broccoli to school the next day with her snack. The next evening, I asked Stella if she ate some broccoli for her snack. I couldn’t help but chuckle at her enthusiastic response, “Yes, I ate broccoli today. I’m getting healthy for Heavenly Father!”

Imagine Glenn with a focused face, watching the olympics, and Stella just looking normal, as if this is her usual position.
Of course, as soon as I bring out the camera, the smiles are on.

So I asked them to try and look natural. This is the result:


Stella has really been into hiking, since we took her to the redwoods back around Thanksgiving. her favorite place to go right now is Briones. She loves it when the cows are out grazing. She also enjoys climbing up the HUGE hills. I am impressed at how adventurous this little one has become, over the last year or so.
This is the first hill that Stella wanted to climb - the picture really doesn't do it justice:
Another view of the hill. We actually climbed three of these bad boys in a row, per Stella's insistence:

More Krispy making.

We took a little road trip up to Grants Pass Oregon to see Grammie and Grampa Aydelotte. It was so much fun. Lots of hide and seek, and some hiking in the redwoods. According to Stella, the 'coolest' thing at Grammie's house is her special recliner. See the pics below.
