I love this picture, although Rebecca is missing. She was taking the picture. Look at the snow covered mountains on the Provo side of the lake. We are standing on Provo Lake here where it is frozen over, and very cold. It was a gorgeous day! And fishermen were out ice fishing in holes they had augered out.

Here's the family singing the Christmas carol they sang in church the Sunday before Christmas. Rebecca is playing the piano, and each took a turn singing a part. Some good harmony too. Nice job!


Katie loves gymnastics! Here she is practicing on her balance beam constructed by Jon and Rebecca, but given by Santa.
Christmas Day was fun playing games, taking pictures and watching everyone enjoy their presents. Later in the day, Rebecca served homemade cinnamon rolls and orange crescents along with wonderful HB ham, sweet potatoes and broccoli. Such a fun day!

Here's Matthew with his Christmas pony. We read Richard Scary's books that Rebecca found. They were the same books I read to my kids 30 years ago. They are still great books--Matthew had lots of fun looking for Lowly Worm and discovering the great adventures of the other characters on every page.
A cute little "cow" visited me on Halloween night. She didn't mind the costume and seemed to know what to do with the pumpkin treat basket. Thanks Brooke and Jake for coming over. That was a "treat."



This is Thanksgiving weekend in Arizona. We had a great time. Just before I arrived in Buckeye, I loved this sunset, and knowing AZ sunsets are super, I stopped to take a picture before it was dark.
Ryan, Darice and I stopped for a second just before Thanksgiving dinner the next day to take this shot. The food was fabulous--turkey and all the trimmings--even orange rolls. And I think, seven pies. What a feast!
Later that night Carson played one of several of his 16 Christmas carols he had learned. After he played it thru once, I played a duet with him. He's a good little pianist. Way to go, Carson. Keep up the good practicing!
