A Holiday Weekend

We enjoyed spending a few days with this little guy.

Grandpa was very happy just to watch.

These two are always trying to dress alike.

 I was there too.

We were lucky to have Scott entertain us.

We went to the hot springs

and stopped to see a bald eagle or two on the way home.

I can't believe this is their first time at the Burnt Lemon Grill.

Then we went for a walk in the canyon.

Some people walked more than others.

This is what he did while, 

everyone else played Keith and Courtney's a game.

And of course, he enjoyed reading Grandma's Kindle in his car.

He is back home and we are missing him.

It's that time of year again

I have to admit that my life has been a little crazy the past couple of weeks.  
In a nut shell, we have been in charge of a couple of dinners, 
made a day trip to Utah, shut my thumb in the car door, really stupid,
and I saved one not so little project for last.  
I am making Peter a quiet book.

I really felt that I did not have a Christmas Letter in me this year,
but I did come up with one last Saturday.
Wes and I make a great team.  I come up with the wacky ideas,
and then he makes it look perfect.
If I sent you one and I usually don't, forgive me,
I was working with crushed thumb.
The main point is we love you all and wish you 
A Very Merry Christmas

First, it was really hard not to come down and blog everyday.
I have to admit, that being grateful everyday wasn't easy.  
During the month, we had a major plumbing issue,
Richard had a hard time recovering from appendicitis, and
I had bursitis (really)  in my knee and hurt like....well, you know.
But blogging everyday, made me more aware of the countless blessing I have been given.
Thanks for reading

Yesterday Wes and I went to Twin Falls High School for State Drama.
It is the 1st time I had been back to my old home since I graduated.
It was weird...say no more...
Rich did great.  He went to finals, and ended up with 4th place.
The team took home 2nd place. 
There was an amazing amount of talent there.

I have cut white sugar our of my life.
It was a difficult breakup,
 but I am finding there is life after white sugar.
I tried these and they are wonderful.

I used almond butter and half sugar free chocolate chips - half regular 
and of course, added some coconut.
They are amazing, 
but don't tell Wes, or he will eat them all.
