3 Day's 'Till Granny's House

This past Sunday our ward finally had the Primary Program and the boys both did a wonderful job. We are now very busy getting ready to leave this Sunday to fly to Rexburg,Idaho for Christmas with my family. I will be flying with all 3 kids and Mike has to stay behind and work on Christmas Day but he will be able to join us the day after Christmas and he has some skiing planned so that makes things all better!

This was our families first attempt at a Gingerbread house and while we had a lot of fun, I'm sure our technique could use improving! Today is the last day of school for Ethan and Hyrum and we are looking forward to all the fun times that await us in Idaho with Grandparents,Aunts,Uncles, Cousins and the snow!!!!!


Mike's New Station

Starting in January Mike and his Captain will be working at this station in Victorville, only a 5 min drive from home. We are soooooo excited because he has never worked this close to home and it will be nice for me to be able to take the kids to visit when he is on duty. It is a really nice station but a very busy one. He worked an over time shift there this week and they had a fire at In 'n' Out. What a tragedy! Don't worry, the whole thing didn't burn down, just some roof damage. It should be open again soon!

Skatin' Time!

So, our kids are totally into roller skating! They love to go anytime we get the chance. It really is a fun way to spend family time together. The last time we were there Julia wanted her own skates too. She walked around in them and had a great time until she fell and then the waterworks came and she was done skating! She was still fascinated by the lights and music and all the other kids there though. It really is a fun family activity. If you haven't been skating with your kids I would encourage you to give it a try.


Togetherness and Thankfulness

We enjoyed a nice day at the Taylor's and the kids had a great time playing with their cousins on Thanksgiving. It was really nice to have Mike home with us this year. The boys spent part of the day playing frisbee in the backyard with the Uncles.

At the boys school they had an Egg Drop the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. You had to package an egg so that it wouldn't break when they dropped it off the school. Here is Hyrum's.... it survived the drop only to be broken a few moments later on the classroom floor!

This is a shot of Ethan's falling... the parachute must have done its job because his survive the fall!
