Oh the weather outside is Frightful!

So December has been a crazy busy month I am sure for us all! I love December and the spirit it brings and all the festivities. And yes the Snow Snow Snow! We have had a lot of firsts this Christmas season. Talon had his first school Christmas recital. He did so good and sang every song! Tanley had her first dance recital. Man I was I nervous for her she is a little bit crazy in class maybe because I am her teacher but she was adorable. I thought she stole the show. She loved it so much that she tried to stay on stage for the next class it was funny. Jaeda gave us her first scare. Her oxygen level dropped to 80 so they thought she had rsv but luckly with breathing treatments it has came up. Poor girl, on top of that she has croop and a bad ear infection. She is feeling better now and were excited to see her during her first Christmas. She has already tried to open presents cause she is crawling all over the place! We have had really fun playing in all of the snow and feeling the rush of getting Christmas ready. With my Mom around I have done a lot of baking and learning all the secrets. It has been fun. Every week the kids have enjoyed a spiritual Christmas story before they go to bed. After all said and done its just nice to sit down to a nice cup of cocoa and be surrounded by the people that you love. We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Christmas tree outing!

What a fun new Christmas tradition we are
starting for our family. We decided to go and
cut our tree down this year. Our friends told
us not to cause it would cause a divorce cause
the know how anal I am. But we did it anyway
and it was actually really fun and me and my
husband still love eachother. And he remember this
year not to put in my house till it was flocked (Oh man
that is a whole blog session in its self). Our friends from
Bryce have a flocking machine so they came down and
made my tree all white and snowing (thanks to my mom
she got me started on that). So there is the finished project
it looks better in real like I think!

I am Grateful!

So these pictures are from my birthday weekend. Ya I am a little slow. We decided to go to Idaho and see my family up there since we wouldn't be up there for Thanksgiving. It was a really good time I got to stay with my sister Jana in Logan. We always have good visits with her and I always stay up way to late talking about life. Then my Mom and Dads broker to us to dinner at Hamilton's steak house and it just ended up being on my Birthday. 27! It was fun to be with all the family and laugh about Ty's peter pan tights that they all saw hehe! I even got to eat at the Formosa the night before which is my favorite chinese restaurant ever! So eating out is like my favorite thing I guess! Then we went up to Idaho to stay with Bryant and Jodi. There great hosts and my kids love them. Jodi has an adorable house she is so Crafty! We got to go back to good old Grace High and watch my nieces Brandi and Sam play basketball. I don't love girls bball but I really got into watching them play they are awesome. Nicole my other niece is a cheerleader and does a great job! I probably watched them more heehee! I got to visit with my best friends parents which is always a treat cause there like my second parents. So my oldest brother Mark and his family moved into the house up there and they just finished remodeling. Wow it looks so great. I am so happy that it stayed in the family and we still have a play to go to! On they way home we got to stop and see my Dads and my nieces head stones which just got done. It was nice to see them before the snow flies and put flowers on them. They look really nice. I am so amazed at how strong my brother and his wife are I know that it wasn't easy especially seeing Jaeda who is only two days older. I know that the Lord will bless them when the time is right they are amazing and will be amazing parents. I am grateful for my Mom and Dad for raising us to have strong testimonies and to always stay close to our Savior. I can't wait for the day that we get to be with my Dad and Brynlee again.

When we got home we got another great surprise Ty's Mom flew into Cedar to spend the day with us. The kids were thrilled they love Grandma Curds. Talon got to see the cool plane that she flew in and he cried when she left. I have two wonderful families, wonderful children, and a wonderful husband I couldn't be more grateful for that.

The Pulse

So our dance studio On Stage went to the Pulse
convention this weekend in Vegas. Oh man it was so
fun. The teachers are amazing as well as the choreography.
I was so sore after Mia's class I could not move my neck. She
is so inspiring and such a technician at creating movement. Isn't the
picture of her and Jaeda adorable. Hopefully, Jaeda is a future dancer.
I also took class from Tyce, Shane, Laurie Ann, Chris and Dave. The
last picture is of the band "Think" it was there first appearance. Chris
Judd is the founder and helping them get big. The were actually pretty
decent so check em out.
