First Time Skiing-

Hatalee went skiing for the first time this week! Her school class took a field trip up to Soldier Hollow. She was so scared and nervous to go, so I was glad Nathan was able to go with them. She came home all smiles, and had so much fun! The only thing she didn't like was the noisy bus ride.

Moon as bright as Sun

I just wanted to post some pictures from last nights moon.  It was very cold but fun to get some good pics of the moon being so close to the earth. I took these pictures at 8:00 last night.  Also check out Brian's blog for some more great moon pics from Moab.

Happy New Year!!

We spent New Years Eve with my family eating and playing games. We even had a little dance off with the Wii. I don't think I've laughed as hard as I did watching Todd and Brian compete against each other. We gave the kids glow sticks and they were entertained for hours. They ran crazy untill midnight, we light some sparklers and some fireworks and called it a night. Hap, Hap, Happy New Year!!!

Uncle Rico even made an appearance.

Christmas and Sledding

Maren woke up Christmas Morning and was really surprised that Santa had brought her toys instead of coal. I guess the night before while she and Hatalee were laying in bed, she told Hatalee she would be getting coal because she had been naughty. Then she proceeded to tell me that even if your naughty for a couple of days Santa will still bring you toys, because look what she got. She is such a little mess, I think she gets it from Nathans side of the family. Micah laid on the floor and played with his train for hours. He is in his own little world when it comes to trains and dinosaurs. He filled the train with his "saurs" and watched them go around and around the track.

The day after Christmas we took the kids sledding up to my Aunt and Uncles house. They had so much fun with all of the snow. They just kept on going and going...

Micah went down and couple of times and actually liked it, untill we made a train and crashed. Everyone ended up on top of him and he was face down in the snow. From then on when anyone asked if he wanted to go he'd just say "I fall", and would have nothing to do with the sleds. I was sneaky and caught this picture of him (that's why he's not screaming and covering his face).

Christmas Eve

We spent Christmas Eve with Nathans family. Grandma Zoey prepared a delicious fondue dinner. The girls put together a little Christmas program. We had to go buy a Christmas piano song book for Hatalee to practice with. She played the piano, Maren made some pictures to go along with the songs and used the Nativity for props. We hurried home and left cookies and milk out for Santa. Hatalee even put his cup of milk in the fridge to keep it cold, because nobody likes warm milk.
