Vacation Art Projects

Did you ever do special art projects during your school holidays? Well, I did this year since I had Katie to help. I've been working on painting a wholecloth quilt, but it's slow going. So here she is helping me move through this wallhanging while watching the Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged. Maybe, Maybe Not!

Merry Christmas

What a wonderful Christmas we had together! Everyone was applauding like each gift unwrapping was a great accomplishment. Howard even pulled out his Sunny-D to celebrate with class. We hadn't put any presents under the tree until T-2 days. We served the usual dishes: orange rolls, berry delight, and green bean casserole. I think there was a turkey, too.

Marnie turns 11

For Marnie's birthday party, we had a few girls come over and play. Usually her party has mixed results as the 19th of December is pretty crazy. But this time was had a good group of girls and they had fun playing in the chocolate fondue!

Last day of Seminary before Christmas

Katie flew in on a Thursday night flight and was excited to go to seminary with us in the morning. She'd also scheduled herself as a chaperone on a history class trip to SAM (Seattle Art Museum). Without a car, she did amazingly well getting around to see all her friends.

Christmas Shopping

Tis the season to go to Wal-Mart and spend a little money on the shooting games. I think one deer died of embarrassment at the silliness of this match-up. Frazier and Howard get in the mood and will buy Daisy Red Ryder BB Guns before the year is up.

Howard's Eagle Project

Thanks to all our fabulous friends who braved a cold, blustery day to help Howard complete his eagle project. They resurfaced the tables at the Camano Island State Park until they couldn't feel their fingers anymore.

Thanksgiving in Salt Lake

All of us (except Calvin) went to the Willard's in Salt Lake for Thanksgiving. We picked up Katie in Provo and had a belly-stuffing time for 4 days. I'm still thirsting for that Winder Dairy Egg Nog.
