My cute little Kitty

I had to post this because I absolutely love my new kitten. He is so cute. The kids and I hold him constantly and he loves it. So enjoy!

Sledding is fun

The kids had fun sledding yesterday at a place we used to go all the time back home. They had so much fun. I had to take some pictures of them. They went down a hundred times I could barely get them to leave. It was really cold and started snowing shortly after these were taken. So anyway I thought I would post them. We had a good time with our family at home. We got lots of great gifts--that is always the best part right?! The funeral for my grandmother was really good. I don't thinks I have cried that much in a long time. I have some cousins with amazing voices that sang and my brother that gave a talk. You did great Brisky! The roads on our way home were quite scary at times but we made it safely home.

Time for a new year

I just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! It came and is going very fast. I will be heading home tomorrow for a few days. We are very excited to go home but sad at the passing of my Grandma. She was a sweet lady. Larry won't be coming with us because he can't leave his job or he doesn't make any money so he will be staying home. I decided to change the look of my blog. I don't know if I like it very much but I will keep it for now. Anyway I hope everyone had a great day!

This is one of the clocks that Larry and I make! This is one that we made for his parents for Christmas. I had to put it on here because I absolutely love them! They are 2ft in diameter and we paint them all different. This time I put vinyl numbers and letters on it and I am so glad because they are so nice! They look really nice in person the picture isn't that great but I thought it looked good enough to post. Anyway Larry's sister and her family have stopped here on their way home for Christmas so we have been really busy. WEll I am out for now. I have more stuff to post tomorrow!

Christmas is almost here!

We got Natalia a new queen size bed and Larry made her a bed frame. Now all we have to do is paint it and it will be so awesome! He did a great job. I am laughing right now because he just came up and said what are you writing? Do you have to put everything we do on your blog? I said YES!!!

12 Days of Christmas

We have been chosen for the twelve days of Christmas! I am so thankful that people think of us! It has been so fun to know that each night we will receive a gift. So I took pictures of what we have received so far. A candle, a Christmas CD, a gorgeous wreath, and tonight a bag of oranges with my favorite Christmas story attached! How cool is that?! It really has been great to live here in La Grande. The people here are so nice to us. We have been welcomed in our ward with open arms and it keeps on going. We live in an amazing ward!

Christmas programs!

We got on the front row for Seth's Christmas play! We never get a good seat so this time I decided to go early and so I got on the front row. Perfect for taking pictures because I don't have a really good lens yet for my camera. I was really excited to be on the fron row. It is so cute how your kids get so excited when they see you there watching them. It is really fun to watch. Seth had 2 lines and did a great job! So I decided that I will go early from now on to get a good seat.

2nd Grade Winter Program!

Cleaning the Church

I had to put Larry on the top of the blog today because he worked really hard today cleaning and vacuuming. He vacumed the whole chapel plus several of the classrooms and halls. It was a really good experience for me. It actually was a lot of fun and the kids were willing to help and were really good. So I had to put this in my blog! I hope you guys enjoy it.

Cleaning the Church

Larry signed us up to clean the church today so I had to put this picture in here because the boys actually helped clean!! It was so nice and I brought my camera just in case they did clean so that I could prove that they actually will clean! They were so good and helped for about a half hour then they wanted to run around! Natalia brought her non-member friend and she was great! They both cleaned really well too! What a way to do missionary work right?!
