"So Frequently we mistakenly believe that our children need more things, when in reality their silent pleadings are simply for more of our time."

Family Pictures

We had our family pictures taken. I wasn't terribly happy with them, but I do like the kid's pictures. I'll definitely find a new place to go next time, though.

Christmas Tree 2009

Chad and I decided that we would put up our artificial tree this year instead of getting a real tree. Last Friday we got out the tree from our storage and brought it inside, only to realized that a mouse (or some little critter like that) had chewed off all the lights and needles form the metal branches. It was very sad looking and it obviously wouldn't like either. So, we decided a real tree would be nice this year. The one we chose really is pretty and boy does it smell wonderful! I'm really enjoying the Christmas season so far. We had our ward dinner last night and all the singing really added to the Christmas spirit.

Formal Stake Ball

Our stake had a formal youth ball at the beginning of December. It was very formal with dance cards and everything. All the girls were encouraged to wear formal dresses but make them modest! All the girls looked great. Here's Myshel in her dress.
