We started Light The World. We made a chain with 25 acts of kindness or service and tried to do one every day. We had to play catch up a few times doing 2-3 things in one day but it really helped us get in the Christmas spirit and feel Christ in our home.
Channer turned TEN!!!! I can hardly believe I have a kid in the double digits. We celebrated by taking two of his friends and inviting his cousins to House of Jump in St George and going to Chuck A Rama. He picked Cooper and Kade to take with. Jeff, Sarah and her girls came, Grandpa Charley, Grandma Marcia T, Stachia and the girls and Ginger and the kids, Chy and Andrew and Chantell and Kim. The Waters and Ortons joined us well. I did not take even one picture- we must have just been enjoying ourselves!
The second weekend in December, we had our annual NFR trip to Vegas. It was different this year without Marcus and Keshia (she will be having her twins next months, so they stayed home this year). Jamie and Gary came this year with us and we had a great time though. We met up one night with Tulsa and Brian and Wyatt and Kylee too. We only went to the rodeo the one night and watched from The D the other nights.
We celebrated Gradnpa's birthday and had him over for dinner.
There was a nice snow storm the first day the kids got out for Christmas break. They played out in the snow for hours with the neighbors.
Then it was home to bed to wait for the big man to visit in the morning.
The last weekend of the year, we went sledding on Saturday and had friends over for a little get together. We played games with the kids and all of us but Randi made it until midnight :)
Here is to a fabulous 2017!!!
