Twinkle Little Star

Until recentley, when Josh and Jane would sing songs with us, they would usually chime in on the last word of each line. Like on the alphabet, we would be singing and they would just say the G, P, S, V, X, Z while we would sing the rest. Kind of out of the blue, They have been singing a little more complete versions lately. I was lucky enough to capture this from Josh earlier today. You may need to turn up your speakers since he sometimes has a soft voice...

Merry Christmas from Santa Jane

This evening we made a bunch of sugar cookies and decorated them. We
then put the kids in the car and went around the neighborhood and ward
to make some special deliveries. We had a great time and the kids
loved staying up way passed bedtime. They were both asleep by the time
we pulled in the driveway.

Hope you all have a great Christmas!!!


Scott, Camille, Josh & Jane

Yesterday, (Saturday Decemeber 1st) we woke up to a wintery day of snow. The kids were super excited. We went out and got snow pants and we are excited to go sledding for the first time. Of course it will have to be at the Timpview Hill out of tradition. So many good times have taken place in the snow at the Timpview hill. Sure there may be other better places to sled but they don't have the same sentimental value.

This snow man was found on the back of a car in a parking lot. As we parked and got out, the owner of the car had just returned from the store to their car and they had no idea who built the snowman. Josh saw the snowman as we were pulling in and said, "snowman on top of car!" I will officially name it, the "Snowman made of trash found in a parking lot."

Josh bundled up for the cold weather.

Jane in some super cute jammies.
