Despite my best efforts of making the blog look very wintry, it has not snowed at our house! In fact, it's been in the 60s and 70s here. GEEZ!!!
Tyler was able to enjoy some snow - he went to visit Brandee and Scott on Christmas day (he will be returning on the 1st). The 3 of them went to Scott's brother Josh's place in Colorado where they went snowshoeing. (I think that's how you spell it - we don't get much snow here, so I rarely spell anything with snow in it!)
Thanks so much to Josh who willingly shared these pictures of the snow fun!

I was hoping that once soccer was over for the fall, we could calm down a bit around here! Apparently NOT.
For the past 2 Sundays, Keenan has marched in the local Christmas parades. Last week, I had Enrichment meeting on Tuesday, taught the Faith in God for Girls class on Wednesday, and we went to the Ward Christmas party on Friday night. On Monday, Tim and Kyle went to the livestock auction and bought a new "Elvis" for our farm. He's a 'bigun' and seems to be taking it in stride that of course he was purchased and brought to a farm with a harem of females who really want to meet him.
Last night we went to Ethan and Dallin's middle school band concert - which went way too long, was too full of people and was too hot. The program went like this:
1 - 6th grade chorus; 2 - 6th grade band; 3 - 7th grade chorus; 4 - 7th grade band; 5 - 8th grade chorus; 6 - 8th grade band. I don't think they took it into account that most of these kids would not only have parents attend, but also grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, friends, etc..... It was very warm with all of those people in one room and one of the 8th grade chorus girls ended up passing out. Maybe next year will be better:) Ethan and Dallin both did awesome - Ethan plays the French horn and Dallin is in the percussion section. Ethan recently made all-county honors band!
Tonight, we have the youth meeting at church and tomorrow night is Keenan's Christmas concert at the high school along with their chorus. In the middle of all of this, Dallin has a Harry Potter Scrapbook book report due on Friday and our internet keeps going up and down with the very wet weather we've been having. I also have to grocery shop for the all of the cookie ingredients which I have to bake starting on Friday. Saturday we have scrimmages for Kyle, Keenan and Tyler's soccer teams and then Sunday I teach the Relief Society lesson at church - which I haven't even looked at yet.

The hotel we stayed in for the Disney soccer tournament had quite the view from our floor. I'm not really fond of heights, and as Piglet says to Pooh "do you have to go so very up?". I bet we could've had a room on a floor that didn't make my legs go weak and my stomach hurt.....If you look really close, you can see Ethan and Dallin.
