In all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I have been neglectful in keeping up on the doings at our house. A quick recap is in order.

Because of the nasty weather we have had, not much has been done since this picture was taken on December 12. We are hopeful, in the next few days, a lot of work will be done. If the roof gets on and shingled, the weather won't be as much of a factor. (fingers crossed)

Kenna and Tom signed up to run the Cable Bridge run for the second year. It was very cold! Kenna's feet got cold and Tom ran most of the 3.2 miles with her on his shoulders. When she saw the finish line, she asked her dad to let her run. He put her down, and she ran the last leg of the race, very cold and miserable. It took a long soak in a nice warm bath to defrost her frozen toes.

The kids patiently (not) waiting to open their Christmas Eve P.J.'s.

Santa came!

One of Courtney's favorite presents was her boyfriend. Her friend gave her a tiny man. When you put it in water it grows. The package says he is the perfect boyfriend because he will listen to you talk for hours, never complains, is loyal and always there. Her dad and I approve and hope she doesn't break up with him for a very long time.
Though I am at an age when I would rather not acknowledge getting older, I celebrated my 41st birthday last Saturday. I have great friends. We went to a movie, (Benjamin Buttons) and Applebee's for lunch. I had to rush home to get ready for the ward temple night. After the temple we were invited to join some friends for dinner and had a wonderful time. It was late when we got home, but the kids were excited for cake and presents.
This year has been scary, rewarding, exciting and many other things. I am looking forward to the new year and have put things in motion to make it a year to remember.
