The kids have really been into making Gingerbread houses this year, well that and Christmas trees made out of upside down ice cream cones. Our wonderful neighbor had the kids over for a party and they made them, then they made them at girl scouts, the twins made them in their class at school and Jace will be making them at Pre-School on Tuesday!. Whew!!!! we are almost gingerbread done for the next couple of years I would say.
Today was a wonderful winter Saturday. We spent the day cleaning up the house and then took the kids Ice Skating. They picked it up quite well.I shouldn't be surprised,but I was. Jace was fast and had a smile on his face the whole time. Thank heavens for the little walkers. Although Jace loved his walker the girls were ready to get rid of their little walkers 2 minuets into the skate time. It was fun and I was very proud of all of them for trying something new. Oh, Yes thanks a bunch to Grandma sitting on the sidelines holding Austin so we could enjoy it.

Well yes the annual Elem entry School program came this year and we had not one, not two, but three little stars! Allie most likely made the most animated this year. If you listen carefully you can hear her echo the words to the song. (on the off beat). They were all so excited and reminded me at least four times the night before to put curlers in their hair. They wanted to look just their best. Hope you enjoy the performance. We sure did. Although the boys did not make the program they had a little act of their own.

Faith Participated in the Elementary Schools Venture Theater Program
this year. They spent a week practicing, And then performed for the school one morning and the parents that evening. Faith was so excited! If you remember anything about Faith is that she is quite the performer. She reminded the girls in front of her twice that they needed to leave her a window.(making sure she was seen by all) She knew all her parts and sang well. We all enjoyed watching the program. Way to go Faith. We look forward to seeing her and her sisters perform next week in the schools annual Christmas program.
Last weekend it dumped on us. We had TONS of snow. It was cold but the kids did not seem to mind. They kept Grandma and me busy climbing up the back hill over and over again, helping them with their sleds. Bret's mowing job over the summer has seem to come in handy. He told me mowing the back hill would be a great idea! And yes it is a smoother ride down the hill. Thanks Honey!!
