It has been awhile since I last blogged myself or read any. So here is a new blog post and my goal is to catch up on everyone else's in the next day or two!
These are in no certain order but all happened in the month of December...enjoy!
This is a picture Grace submitted at school for the Reflections program. The topic was WOW and the students could draw, take pictures, make models, record dances, write songs or music, etc to that topic. Grace drew a picture of me upside down and it said "My Mom is Wow upside down"! Didn't win but she did receive a lovely ribbon for participating that she loved!
Of course the cold weather calls for tea now and then to warm a lady up. And when I say lady I mean lady as they all wanted to put on make up and then hold a proper tea party. They did it them selves if you couldn't tell!
Then some of our favorite cousins came back to Utah for Christmas. They are currently living in Texas while Grant works towards his PhD. His Mom is so proud! Anyways, we had a fun Sunday dinner at Aunt Gail's and it was just like old times. We really miss you Grant and Ruth!
We went to the Aquarium with our friends the Smiths and Brenda was nice enough so email me a few pics as I forgot to bring our camera. The girls love playing with the boys and we always have a fun time hanging out be it the Aquarium, the zoo, or Chick Fillet!
And last but not least we had a wonderful Christmas! The girls had a nice mix of gifts and loved it all. We celebrated with my Mom and Step Dad and in loo of a big Christmas meal we snacked all day long! Our New Years was nice too. My Mom came to spend the night and celebrate. We were all tired so around 9 we celebrated New Years watching a You Tube clip from 1997 of the ball dropping. I am going to be a little sad once the girls can tell time! No harm was done though, they were excited to stay up until "midnight" and we were excited not to! We hope you all had happy holidays and are getting back into the swing of things for the New Year.
