Ice Skating

Audree started ice skating lessons last week. She was so brave and good, but I didn't have the camera! This week she is sick, so she's not too happy in the picture, but she still gave it a try. Most of the other kids cry the whole time, because it is really hard to keep your balance and it hurts when you fall. I am so proud of her!

Kids say the darndest things

I have really tried to keep the real meaning of Christmas in our home, so Audree and I have had many talks about why we celebrate the season and why we share gifts. During the last conversation we had just a few days ago she asked me how we could give gifts to Jesus like the wise men did. I told her that loving everyone and being so good were great gifts to give to Jesus. She had a wonderfdul idea. She said that she would wrap up those gifts in a box with a bow to give to Jesus. Then she paused and asked me where Jesus was. I said that Jesus is in heaven. She thought for a minute then said, okay so we can take the box with a bow and kill it.

Thanks to my dad and mom we got Disneyland passes for Christmas. Yeah Disneyland! Audree was so excited, Ethan didn't know what it was, but since we went yesterday he has been asking for it. Here we are in line for the Teacups! I had it spinning pretty fast, but it looked like Ethan was about to throw up, so I had to stop spinning it. He is so funny, when it was over he still wanted to go again.

Happy New Year!

We had a great time bringing in the new year with some new friends. I am happy to be a wife and mom. I am happy we are all healthy. I am happy that we can live so comfortably. I am happy that Clark has a job and even more happy that he is enjoying it. I am happy to have my own testimony of our Savior. I am happy that Joseph Smith was a great man. I am happy that I come from a great family. I am looking forward to all of the great things to come this year. I wish everyone a happy new year!
