Welcome to my blog! I have been intrigued by the idea of a blog for a while now. When I was a girl I always wanted to keep a diary. But, I would get one and keep up with it for a week or two. Hopefully I'll do better with this! This blog probably won't be especially exciting, but if you want to hear about what's going on at our house then just read on!

Christmas Festivities and Band Christmas Concert

Well, the Christmas festivities are in full swing. We have had the Church Holiday Party and the youth Holiday Party. My work has had their holiday party and we are having a party for the kids at Happy Times on Friday. This Saturday is our first family Christmas Party - then it's to Lena's on Christmas Eve, my Mom's on Christmas day, and My Grandmother, Dad, Sister and her family, and brother and his wife are coming to my house on Sunday afternoon the day after Christmas. Hopefully we will all be well in time for Christmas. Seems like Megan has spent more than half of her Christmases sick.

I finally finished all of my Christmas decorating. I have most of my Christmas shopping done. I just have to pick up a few stocking stuffers and last minute items. And, I have TONS of wrapping to do! I think that might be one of the girl's jobs this year. I'm really excited about Christmas this year. I can't wait till Christmas morning! I love to watch the girls open their gifts! I think I get just as excited as they do.

We have also had the pleasure of attending Taylor's first band concert! The Riverton Intermediate School has 70 kids in their band -and that's only 6Th graders! They played Jingle Bells, Up on the House Top, and Santa's Noisy work shop. They have only had one of the pieces of music for 2 1/2 weeks and I thought they did a great job! These kids just picked up their instruments less than 4 months ago! Then, the Buckhorn Middle School bands played (they have 3 bands) and Buckhorn High School played. I really enjoyed it! I'm not sure that Jonathan and Megan enjoyed it is much as I did though. It was unbearably hot in the school gym and Megan wasn't feeling well. So, much to my disappointment we left before getting to hear the Buckhorn High School Band. We ordered a recording of it all so I will get to listen to them when that comes in. We also got Taylor a neat trumpet ornament. It looks just like her silver trumpet! But, I'm making her wait till Christmas.


  1. Sounds like it was a great time. I like concerts like this.

  2. She looks so cute! Glad it went well and hope Megan feels better soon. I hate to hear kids being sick on Christmas!
