It snowed

So I know Christmas was yesterday, but I am soooooooo over Christmas, I have the Christmas Blah's. It couldn't be that starting next week I start a mandatory 6 days a week 12 hour days? So I will blog our Christmas latter this weekend. So what is the next best thing to Christmas?

SNOW, and lots of it. We got pounded on Thursday night. It was great. So this morning much to our surprise we had a palathera of city vehicles show up to plow us out. Of all the machines the front-end loader was the best and he chose our front lawn to be the dumping ground for ALL the snow in the cul-d-sac. So after an hour of plowing and dumping we ended up with a sledding hill that was well over 8 feet high. My husband LOVES this kind of stuff. He created stairs in the mountain and some sledding trails fully equipped with jumps and off they went. Here are a few pics. Blogger is being dumb and won't let me move around my pics. So I love the boys on the top of the mountain it looks like they are actually on top of Mt. Logan. The action shot ROCKS, they really got some air and we finally got a camera that can catch those action shots. That was our Christmas gift to us, a new camera so we can get shots of the kids sports.

Have a nice Christmas.

So you probably thought I gave up blogging huh? well it is the Christmas season which means programs and parties. Also we are gearing up for our busy season at work and unfortunately I have been working overtime. I do it begrudglingly because I only have to work 2 1/2 days this upcoming week. BUT starting the next week I work 6 days a week, 12 hours a day.

So to summarize, Colton got baptized the morning of our first HUGE snow storm, BUT everyone still came. It was short and nice. Grandma Elder gave her talk about her baptism and it was real nice. She was touched and cried most of the way and didn't even read what she wrote because she was crying. It was beautiful and we enjoyed it. Then that same day we went to the matinee performance of Voicemale. WE LOVE VOICEMALE. Their music is family friendly and very beautiful. we laughed and the kids loved it.

Oh Yeah, i just about forgot. Scott passed both his Firefighter I and Firefighter II exams. So now he is a Firefighter II with and EMT-B also. This means.......(drum roll)he can now start looking for work. WOOOOO HOOOOO. He is taking the test for Mesquite, NV in January and for the SLC FIre Authority. Also he will be testing for Ogden and Logan sometime in the next month. We are very very excited. he still has school through January but that is just for some more certificates.

So we had some parties this week, Dance Recitel and now school is out. We are finishing our shopping this weekend and now we are good to go.

Merry Christmas.

Baptism for Real

So Colton is going to be baptised on Saturday the 13th at 10:00 AM at the Mt. Logan Stake Center (church on Center Street). It will be short and sweet. There are only 4 kids being baptized so it will be quick. We will also have an early lunch right after at my mom's house.

I invite everyone out in computer land to please come to support Colton. He thinks no one will come. If you can't make it, I totally understand.

Hope to see you there.

Christmas Stuff

So here is my confession. I love Christmas. I love everything about it BUT the mess. The set up, the clean up, all of it. I love the music, the treats, how people are nice, I love teh meaning of it. I love cold weather, snow storms, all of it. I love my family and being together. I don't like to clean at all, and I admit I do only when and what I have to. My house is not messy, but it does get cluttered. Right now with working full time my house gets completely cleaned on Saturdays and then kind of coasts through the week. I see Christmas as more mess. We did however set up our tree and it is my most favorite tree yet. I will post pictures tomorrow.

One thing I am very excited about is that we have never seen the Mormon Tabernacle Choir do a live concert. I entered the raffle for tickets for the concert this year and they arrived today YEAH!!!! I think they are in the balcony but I dont' care I am soooo excited to go to it.

So these are my Christmas feelings. Hope you all have a nice Christmas.
