Sledding

The day after Christmas it snowed again!!! Well we thought we would take advantage of it and go sledding at a local park. The kids had a blast so much fun for them the hill was a perfect size for them to walk up on their own and sled back down even for Jenna. They all cried when it was time to go.







Pictures from Christmas!

It Does Snow In Price

We had a real good snow storm here in Price and it's seems like it hasn't stopped for a week! It's awesome when it snows in Price for a couple of reasons but the best is there is nowhere that's a long commute so no traffic and less crazy drivers!!

Anyways here is my mother of the week story! I sent the kids to school last Tuesday in just there sneakers well it proceeded to snow the entire day! When William walked in the he said to me mom I lost a shoe. I told him go get it. He said "mom I don't know where it fell off, my feet are so frozen I can't even feel them!" So who knows how long he had walked home with only one shoe and he didn't even know it. Granted I am sure he walked home in every snow bank. So come spring we will find his other shoe I guess.

Ho Ho Ho

 This is the first time in three years that my kids have seen Santa Claus...I think Jenna's last time was when she was only a couple of months old. Normally we just write letters. But we had an opportuntiy to see Santa at the Highschool so we went! No long lines, no obnoxious mall stores...I loved it.

If I understand it correctly this Santa is a really neat Santa. I believe that he lost his son when he was only 8 years old and he does a fundraiser each year to raise money for a program called "Spencer Wishes" it gives back money to whatever it was that took his son's life. Sorry that was really vague. I am just not sure of the whole story.  But I know he does it in his son's honor. And he is so so so good with the kids. Really talks with them and spends some time with them.







Let's go Blue...Let's Go White

 This year we decided to do cheer leading instead of dance...mostly because it's cheaper since I am now paying for two. The girls absolutely love it! It helps that they have lots of friends that do it too. All day long I hear "5...6...7...8...lets go blue, lets go white, blue, white" it never gets old. Kyanna is amazing a cartwheels and now she is working on round off. Jenna is so good too, for a three year her attention span in cheer leading is quite amazing. She follows all the directions, most of the time:) And she can do somersaults like crazy!

This was their first performance of the year at the Helper Arts and Craft fair. They both did really good!
 Jenna had no reservations about getting up in front of people to perform. No problems at all!



Jenna does spend a lot of time looking at what the other girls are doing, but she did great.
