We had a great Christmas this year. It feels good to have everyone home, and no place to go for a couple of days. Even though the kids are older, we still have to get up at 6 for the grand hoorah. They were good enough though to go out early and do the chores first. Kesiah and Joseph both got bikes (joseph's is a trike), and since we have snow, they ride them in the house. We have had a great time just relaxing, and enjoying each other. We got a disney jigsaw puzzle, and we enjoy working on it by the fire.
We are now however experiencing a bout of pink eye. Aaron, Kesiah and Joseph have that. Now if we can just clear it up soon, all will be well.

Oh My!

So I was so proud of myself yesterday. I had to have a pie made for Young Womens last night, so I got an eggnog cheesecake whipped up early in the day. I went out the back door to put it in the fridge in the garage. I didn't however realize that the steps were covered in ice. Needless to say, I went flying, feet straight up, and the pie went down, all over the sidewalk. I am fine, just a sprained sacrum, but I have learned the lesson of watching what I am doing. I did have to go and buy a pie since mine was all over the ground. (would have been a great pie).

Everybody's doing it!

I always hear of people having blog pages, and some of my family and friends have them, and I love to read them, so I decided to start one for our family.

We are in my favorite time of year. I love September through December. I have so much to be grateful for, and I have definitely been in that frame of mind this last couple of weeks.

First, I am so grateful for my husband and children. I learn so much from them each day.

I realize now how much I am grateful to have kids at home. J'Rel left home for college this year, and I am feeling the empty spot. We miss her.

I am grateful to live in Utah, closer to family. It is so nice to be able to get to families places in just a couple or few hours. I love that. and I love living close to the mountains.

I am also grateful for my health. When I get sick or get hurt, I really appreciate my health when I get it back.

On this day,however, I am grateful for Christmas! I love the decorations and lights, and it makes me feel like a kid again!!
