Liston's christmas program

I didn't want Liston to be left out.

He is on the far right side :( so you can't see him well. The program was pretty good. 1st-5th graders program.

Here are some pics of Santa's visit to the ward party.

Coleman was a little shy.

Deacon's Christmas Program

Deacon performed in the Kindergarten Christmas Program yesterday! I was excited that they put him in the front row :) He has been worried all week that he wouldn't be able to sing because he has had a bad sore throat and cough. He said last time they practiced he just moved his lips! Well, his worrying was for nothing because he sang, danced and jingled his way through a great program!





He even made the paper here.

We went to the annual Light Parade in Victor the 1st Sat in December. Fun activities all day followed by a light parade and good fireworks display at night. Liston and Deacon both won a turkey at the turkey bowling. Deacon almost went down the lane with the turkey they were useing because he didn't let go when he was supposed to. I was to slow with the camera for it though.

Here are the boys on top of a snow bank they found watching the fireworks.


Gas station was giving out some good hot chocolate all day long. We did get more than one.


They don't throw out candy for some reason:) But the glow sticks they do throw out are a hit.


Here Mare is with our friend Jen. It was kinda funny because we ran into her there last year for the fireworks as well.

Pizza Time!

We've been snowed in since Monday---so we've had to get creative on ways to pass the time! Yesterday we played with playdough, made flavored snow (we may never run out!), read 985 books and played chicken foot over and over and over again :) Well, even after all that "fun" Deacon wandered up to me and said--"I'm still bored!" So for dinner I decided to have the boys make their own mini pizzas! They had sooo much fun! I wish I'd got some pics of everyone putting their pizzas together but we were too busy creating! Here are a few of the finished product!

Deacon's snowman

Well I can now say that winter has finally made it's way to Driggs. We had such a gorgeous autumn that I can't really complain about the snow :) Deacon headed out on Saturday intent on building himself a snowman--with NO HELP! And he did it! He was so proud of himself that he asked me to snap a few pics! Didn't he do a great job?



And one of Coleman just cause he's so stinkin cute!

Sorry for not posting

Yes, I have been lame at posting lately. We've had such a great summer and fall and I've been too lazy to post. Todd even took pity on me and posted the last few blog entries! I promise I'll get going again--not tonight--but soon :)

happy late birthday Liston

Liston turned 7 on the 2nd. So the post is a little late. He had a fun day. He got to eat his favorite Pizza. Play video games for a looong time. Followed by his requested birthday cheesecake.
Some pics of the day.

Happy Birthday Todd!

Here are a few pics from Todd's birthday! His birthday on Sunday was actually pretty quiet since we'd done all our partying with the Tram the day before! But here's a few pics with him blowing out his candles! Happy Birthday Todd--I love you and I'm so grateful to have you with me on this crazy ride!!!

Jackson Tram


The Jackson tram is free for locals right now, so we decided to take advantage of the nice day. They have been doing it each year at th end of season but this is the first time we've made it. It was a great weather day even though the sign said it was going to be 28 degrees on top. It turned out to be pretty nie since there wasn't any wind.


Waiting in line, wanting to be held :)


There were quite a few paragliders flying around while we were waiting for the tram. Eventually we passed them and could look down on them.




The first thing Coleman did when he stepped out of the tram on top was put some snow in his mouth.


The boys all thought it was a pretty cool ride.


This is where the boys get their good looks.


This shot has the Jackson Hole cowboy logo in it.


They got a little bit of snow last week.


Deacon posed for me on top of a little hill that is up there.



Looking down with Deacon, at Mare and Coleman.


Boys with the Grand in the background.


Fresh snow on trees makes the coolest image in the mountains I think.
