A Morning Ritual

Do you ever wonder what it is like to be sung to by a choir of angels every morning as you get up?

All right, so maybe the "choir" is more like a trio and "angels" are a Mom or Dad (oh yes, Scott likes to sing too) and a couple of little girls who sometimes have some not so angelic tendencies, but I don't think you hear Beck complaining! In fact, he usually "sings" along with squeals of happiness. As Scott has pointed out, "He definitely doesn't get his morning personality from me."

Oh Christmas Tree!

I learned that beauty on the inside can apply to Christmas trees too.

This year was the first year I turned the decorating of the tree completely over to my kids. Yes, most of the ornaments are placed from the waste down. And yes, you will find four ornaments clumped together in some spots and big empty spaces in others. But every time I look at our tree this year, I can't help but smile because in my mind these happy faces adorn the tree too.

I Married The QB

A friend of mine in the ward sent me these videos of Scott at this year's Turkey Bowl.

Ah yes, the Turkey Bowl. Where the youngsters wish they were ten years older and twently pounds heavier. And the oldies wish they were ten years younger and twenty pounds lighter.

He totally scored a touchdown there.

A Kindergarten Production

"Welcome to the Kindergarten Production. Thank you for coming and enjoy the show!"

"The best Thanksgiving play presented by the kindergarteners."

26 letters, 26 words for each letter, 26 lines for each word for each letter.

Morgan followed the kid who shouted " 'B' Big". Her line was, "They sailed on a BIG ship called the Mayflower."

However, if you watched her, she mouthed every line of the play and was the only one who knew when the 'G' boy got his line wrong.

Later she recited the entire play for me again, and again, and again. She just walked in on me writing this post and started it all over again, and again, and again.

By the way, if you want to know the line is "They GATHERED seeds and berries to eat." And it was Zachary, "not my Zachary but the one in Mrs. Ucker's class" who got it wrong.

So Good, It's Dreamy

Some might say my cooking is boring. I like to think it is so good and they have eaten so much, it puts them in such a state of yummy bliss that they need nothing more than to fall asleep.
