Let it Snow!

Yesterday we had a nice day indoors while it snowed for most of the day.  Got lots of laundry done and had some good family time. I wanted to post a few pictures today.
Cubbies built by Don, Devin and Greg!
We have really enjoyed using these cubbies that Devin's Dad help build with Devin and Greg.  They are so nice to have for the kids to put muddy boots, coats, gloves.  I'm looking to glue some clothes pins on so we can hang up wet gloves and hats.
Samantha's Flute Class at WSU
Cindy Henderson a professor at WSU taught a master class last Saturday that Samantha played in.  She played Honeybee and did very well.  I am amazed at her attention span and the things she has learned playing the flute.  This has been a really good fit for her.  Cindy told her that she has the perfect flute lips so her embouchure is very good.

Traeden with his Arrow of Light
Traeden got his Arrow of Light in December.  He was excited to hang up his arrow in his room.   The Order of the Arrow young men came to present the awards and did a great job.  I think it's really neat that they make a big deal out of this.  The cub scouts really look forward to this and the costumes are just awesome!

Abigail with Santa

We went to the Cache Valley Mall and all the kids got to sit on Santa's Lap.  Abi was a little nervous but she talked about it forever.  Santa had a real beard!

The Overly Gingerbread house
The kids had a great time making the gingerbread house and even more fun when they ate the candy.  They were even invited to go to a friends house to each make there own.  They had a great time!

This year in Relief Society, our theme is "It's a Year of Learning."  We had a combined meeting today with all the sister, so the Men took over the Primary and YW Callings so everyone could attend.  It was neat to see everyone there.  I would like to keep my New Years Resolutions and each Sunday renew those commitments by review my goals and then make a commitment to do a little better that week.  I'm not worried if I have a bad week, I just need to keep renewing those goals and I will do better.
