On Friday I was in charge of Corbin's class party but it was super easy. I just had to assign some things out and bring a snack and put up a few decorations. It was nice to have it checked off my list though. On Saturday we had a Beal Christmas party at Lance and Katie's house. We got together and had pizza and did a white elephant exchange. The kids had a really hard time grasping the gift exchange situation. There were more than a few tears shed that night. Those are good opportunities for teaching life lessons though.
Today the choir did most of the Christmas program. It was a great Sacrament meeting. There were a lot of solos and duets as well. Our ward has a lot of musical talent so it's great.
Scott and I decided to combine the money from both of our parents for Christmas and buy a ginormous TV for Christmas. Since we won't be home for Christmas anyway Scott went and bought it yesterday and set it up. It's nice! The kids love it! Plus our old TV got moved into my bedroom and the TV reception actually works and now I can watch the Today show in my room while I'm getting ready in the morning. Winning!
I decided to make cinnamon rolls for my kids today as kind of a Christmas present. The kids love them. We are headed to Salt Lake this week so hopefully the roads won't be horrible. Wish us luck!
A couple of favorite quotes this week:
Gabby talking to a friend, "we have a small cousin, her name is Greta, she is adorable, she is mean to baby Ryan." Ha.
Corbin was pestering Ryan and Ryan said, "Go Away!" It was funny!
|Piper spent 45 minutes coloring this picture for her primary teacher.|
|One of Gabby's spontaneous creations. It's a bakery I think.|
|The ugly sweater I wore last week, Scott wore to a work party. NICE!|
|This picture is not great, but you can see the TV alright!|
|It snowed one morning so I helped Ryan and Piper get bundled so they could go outside and play. Cutest!|
|Teacher pillows. I made two more for my kids.|
