Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

We have had a lot of fun the last two weeks.

We all enjoyed Christmas, it was simple and quiet. I really love being at home, doing our own thing. It helps us grow closer as a family, making our own little family traditions.

Here are a few of the high-lights....

Kevin didn't work this past week. The time we have spent together as a family was priceless, we don't want it to end. After a busy year with Kevin in school and the rest of us busy with Young Women's, sports, and everything else we need time to just be together and be normal. Something we never feel we get to be with the pressure of everything we have going on.

So this week was spent time swimming at the local rec. center, going to a movie, snow sledding, and ice skating to name a few. We also had our families first ever New Years Eve party. We made our own decorations, party hats, and noise makers. We played Twister and some other games. Stayed up late( 9:30), had a count down to 2010! We all had a blast!

Ethan tried hard, but he fell a lot and was all tied up in knotts.

He was so funny.

Hope you all had a wonderful end of the year!
