Week in review

You would think the energizer bunny lived at our house the way we have been going and going...... Gator had his first Synigis shot this week... Truly not fun, but really important.

We had our primary Christmas party, This is Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus.. Jeff was a Shepherd and I did the music. It went amazing and I am so proud of all the children.

Friday we went to the Festival of trees and saw all the beautiful trees that people had decorated for purchase, all proceeds are donated to Primary Children's hospital. It was amazing. We saw many trees done by friends to honor their loved ones. This tree was done by Melissa and Becky "heart" moms who added all the heart kids this year... Gator is actually in this picture from the fun run. If you can see the bottom... IT SOLD!!!!! I am so thankful to these ladies for all their hard work and sweet thoughts for all of us. You would be amazed at the talent of these amazing donors. One group of artist.. all family.. did a blown glass tree, truly the hit of the show, it sold for 26,000.00 dollars...Whew!

Saturday was Ry's dance recital... Way to go little girlie... She was really nervous at first. The old "deer in the head lights" because this was her first performance ever; on a big stage, with all those people watching... But after a few minutes she was into it and dancing like crazy.... She was really looking forward to dressing up, putting on make up and wearing rollers in her hair. (of all things)
Today has been the same with Jeff doing a fantastic job at the pulpit conducting and then doing sharing time with the bishopric... And tithing settlement and such that keeps him busy...

we won't be slowing for a while...

Wow! What a week. I miss the festival of trees. We do not have that here, or I do not think we do. We had a busy week two. The primary children and the relief society helped me make blankets for Chilren's. I delivered 66 blankets. Ry looks adorable in her costume.

Busy times! Those are the days of our lives.

I was amazed by that glass tree too. But that price is all that I have to say!
