We have been really busy lately! Here are some of the things that have been keeping us so busy during the month of December:
  • Chris's school! He just finished his finals this past week! He did so awesome! We are all very proud of him and are glad he has a few weeks break from school to spend time with us!
  • Becca's school! I'm so busy teaching school! I got offered a new position just this past week. I was offered to take over as the 3rd grade math teacher! I accepted it and am excited (I think...) to take on the job. It should be fun, but will take a lot of getting used to. I get to spend my holiday break planning for that class...not looking forward to that but I am looking forward to this great opportunity for me. I will miss being an aide for Kindergarten. I loved my little kindergartners so much! I will miss helping them out each day, but I feel taking this new position on will open up new doors for me and give me some good experience.
  • Mckenna....she keeps us very busy. She is always finding new things to get in to and always wants new "projects" that are suppose to keep her out of trouble.Ha ha...we try out best to keep her entertained. She loves being at grandma's during the day and keeps her very busy as well! (Thanks grandma!!)
  • Sydney....well this little girl is very much like her sister and is very busy. She is the fastest crawler around and pulls herself up onto EVERYTHING! She can stand by herself and will be walking in no time I am sure!
We just finished up a short trip to SLC to see the Christmas concert with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir featuring David Archuleta and Micheal York. IT WAS AMAZING! Chris and I loved it. It really got us in the Christmas spirit. We were able to spend time at temple square withe Mckenna and Sydney and Chris' parents and sister too. It was a lot of fun. Mckenna loved the amazing Christmas lights!

I am excited that this year we get to go to Moab for Christmas. It will be so fun to be with my family for a week or so. We haven't gotten together for a while, so I'm very excited!

I love this time of year and am so thankful for all of my wonderful friends and family. Chris and I are truly blessed in our lives. I am thankful for this time of year where we get to pause and reflect on the most important things in our lives...friends, family, and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Let us all remember the true meaning for the season...the birth of our Savior. I am thankful for him and I am also thankful whenever I get a small excuse to teach Mckenna about Jesus. Christmas is the perfect time to teach our children about Jesus. She loves the manger scenes at the temple and our nativities in our home. She loves Jesus so much. What a wonderful time of year! Merry Christmas to everyone!
