Look out Angelina!

Bill broke out the box of wax lips he has for Scout Camp and we all hammed it up for the camera.  Lots of laughs for everyone!

Christmas Eve Cookies

Christmas Eve my family came down to see a movie, have dinner, and make sugar cookies for Santa.  The evening was a great success, the movies were good, the panninis(sp?) were delicious, and the cookies were spectacular!  A special thank you to Aunt Lizzy for making the dough and Aunt Amanda for overseeing the cookie making.

Candy Trains 2008

We so enjoy our candy train tradition we have with our friends, The Mowers.  It's always interesting to see how the kids choose to use their candy.  We have found that the older the child, the amount of candy used increases exponentially!

We're going BOWL'N

After another perfect 12 - 0 season the Utah Utes busted the BCS.  They are going to the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans and we will be there to cheer them on! GO UTES!

Christmas Sing

As is tradition at our elementary school today was the Christmas Sing.  Each grade performs 2 Christmas songs for all the parents in the gym.  This year it was incredibly crowded.  I got there 20 minutes early and was able to snag a seat on the back row.  Taylor and Tate did great, they knew all the actions and words to their songs.  We will be humming them for the rest of the day.

My hard working MAN!

Bill bought a snow blower this past Tuesday in anticipation of a big storm that was supposed to hit.  Much to his dismay it only snowed about 1 inch and didn't really stick.  On Tuesday morning it snowed a couple of inches and he was very excited to use his new machine.  This morning there was about 4 inches and he was right out there blowing it away.  It now only takes about 20 minutes instead of the hour it used to take.  We will see how long the enthusiasm lasts.
