How has my little boy turned into a 9 year old! He is getting taller and taller and eating more and more…
A little about this handsome guy:
He still loves the color gold. He's asked for a small piece of gold for his birthday…if only the price wasn't so atrocious at the moment...
He's still good with numbers, math comes very naturally to him.
He loves sports and is very competitive. He plays soccer, basketball, baseball (his favorite), swimming (his least favorite) and football (my least favorite).
He's full of emotions, but hardly shows them (unless your his mom).
Strong silent type. All the way.
Loyal and honest to a fault. You are lucky to be his friend, he will never betray you.
Pumpkin pie is still his birthday cake of choice.
Favorite meal… Meat. Meatball subs, steak tacos, Salmon.. Meat. I hear, "Mom, I want some meat.." at least once a day.
Loves Video Games and is currently all about Minecraft. He's crafted a boat house, a roller coaster and multiple other "crafty" things. Which leads me to my next character trait,
Creative. Berkeley loves to create. I found a statue in his desk made from the wax that went around his cheese at lunch. I was impressed by the statue and the medium that he chose.
Entertainer. Berk loves to entertain and be funny. Lillian is his favorite audience. She loves to play with Berk. It's a very cute bond.
Piano. He tolerates it, but is doing well. He did do exceptionally well at the recital, he played each piece perfectly, even though he was the most visibly nervous. We were impressed.

Merry Christmas everyone and a Happy New Year! This year has been full of fun, and has flown by. Even my kids were commenting in the car that this year has really flown by. Aren't we suppose to feel like time is slowly ticking away when we're kids…
Some of the highlights of this year included traveling to see family this summer. We first traveled to GA, then FL for a Ferrel Family Reunion to celebrate Mom and Dad Ferrel's 50th Wedding Anniversary. All the Families were there except the two missionaries Amanda (in Sweden) and Allie (in Oregon). It was so fun. Here's a little hit list of memories made:
Big House. Princess Hideout made by Alyvia and Laurel. Fun on the beach with cousins. Family pictures. Jet Skiing on the Sound. Family Night talent show (Hargis's Hawaiian dancing). Cool Decorations, Balloon ceiling. Awesome Seashell Cake. Failed Glowing Lantern Attempt. How we met stories. Cousin Bonding and drum roll…..no fighting. All the cousins and adults for that matter enjoyed each other's company and had so much fun!
After the GA/FL trip we flew straight to Idaho for a month of fun there! Here are some of the highlights:
Cardboard Houses in the backyard. Failed Fishing Attempts. Snow Cones. Wildlife Museum and a Huge Sturgeon. McCall Idaho, beautiful Lake, Camping, body boarding, Falling in the water and laughing at ourselves. Yummy ice cream cones. Rodeo. Traveling to Rigby, then the cabin in Island Park. 15 year high school reunion. Tornado warning (while we were there). Boat rides on the lake. Kenna cousin time. Finally catching some fish. Yellowstone National Park and Elk that almost walked right up to us. Paint Pots. Souvenirs. Illegal Buffalo statue photos. Mexican food from a Bus.
After ID we drove to Ut for a short visit with Grandma June (98 years old). Ev took a picture of her with his camera because he wanted a picture to remember her by. So cute. We also spent a night walking around BYU with the kids and ended it at the BYU Creamery. Even Lillian stayed awake for the ice cream at 11 pm.
We also slipped in a trip to GA for Thanksgiving. Blume cousin time. GA aquarium. The Movie Frozen with Grandma and Grandpa. Yummy Thanksgiving Dinner. Grandma and Grandpa's swing.
