Christmas Morning

We had a wonderful Christmas morning at grandma and grandpa's. Santa brought lots of fun to toys. I think the favorites were the pillow pets and the shovels. We had fun playing games and just hanging out. We love vacation.

Kit Kat loves playing in the snow. We sure got a lot of it over about a week and she sure had a great time. She loves to just put her tongue in it and eat it. I think it is disgusting, but oh well.

Quote of the day

Not that I usually have a quote each day, but it sounded like a title.

I just read a talk by Elder Bednar titled, "In the strength of the Lord." It was given 2001, if you have not read it I would highly recommend it. If you don't get to it today here is a little gem from it to get you by until you take the time to read it.

"Thus the enabling power of the Atonement strengthens us to do and be good and serve beyond our own individual desire and natural capacity."

I think at some point each of us talks ourselves out of things and tells ourselves that we can't do something just because it is hard for us. As I think of the Atonement of Jesus Christ I do remember that is is a redeeming power, but not often enough do I remember it as an enabling power.

Shoveling time

I love this kind of slave labor, when your children think it is still fun to help you out with chores. The shovel is a bit big must say, maybe Santa could bring kid size shovels so it is a bit more fun.

Good wintery times

Kit Kat was helping to make hot cocoa. The girls love to have it after they come in from playing outside. I think they even ask for it when we just look outside.

Sinclaire had a gingerbread house making party at school and pops got to go and help her. They made a great house and she was so excited about it. Morgen is hiding there in the back ground, hi Morgen I bet you didn't want to be in the picture did you?

Field trip

Sinclaire went to Connor Prairie with her preschool and they had a wonderful time walking outside in the freezing cold for that gigantic gingerbread man. I am so glad we finally found him, because I was freezing. I am glad I got to go and see them all having fun and see the gingerbread contest.


What do you do when your three year old looks at you and says, "I don't want to wear panties!!"
