First Christmas in Ivins

Festivities began on Christmas Eve with our Gingerbread House, reading the Nativity Story from the scriptures, reviewing what we are grateful for and watching "It's a Wonderful Life". The night ended perfect...with snow! Christmas Day was full of fun surprises from Grandma & Grandpa Freeman, the Lay family...and Santa! The movie room will be complete with the fun bean bags. The fooseball table was a hit too. We are so blessed and will cherish the memories forever.

Sunday Morning Pancakes

It's tradition! Things are starting to get back to normal when you can have a leisurely Sunday morning breakfast with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in the background doing Music and The Spoken Word. Ryan makes a great chef (he's got TWO pans going!) Eric made eggs too. They were all smiles this morning. Andrea slept in, we saved her a few.

Snow Day - No School!

The kids had the best time yesterday. The snow just kept coming down, the roads were slick and school was cancelled! They made snowmen and played in the park. Pretty cool to have snow three days in a row...not a usual scene for our "neck of the woods". Christmas Break begins tomorrow!

Trucks and Muscle

Calling all of you with trucks and/or muscle...We are moving out to Ivins on Saturday. If anyone has the ability to squeeze us into your busy schedule, we would love your help. If you are better at packing, we are doing that on Friday. If you can't come, no problem. We know it's a busy time of the year. Stay warm!

Check out the dancing elves!

Exciting news...we are moving for Christmas! Packing, packing, packing. Thanksgiving was a blast, we really enjoyed our visit from Bruce, Kerry and the kids. Four wheeling, shooting, eating, Temple lighting ceremony, eating, Tuacahn nativity show, eating...oh, and of course we had to go see Twilight again! (All the pictures are on Andrea's blog...) If anybody has boxes, we need them TODAY. :-)
