It's a Wonderful Gift...

So this Christmas, Jon's Dad gave the family tickets to see "It's a Wonderful Life" at the Desert Star Theater. This particular theater is well known for it's twists on all the performances it puts on. We attended the December 31st matinee performance and as expected, it was very entertaining and kept all of us laughing throughout the show. From George Baily loosing his hearing in his right ear because of the shoulder use of a "Ghetto Blaster" to his guardian angel being "Jonny Angel" a 50's greaser with amazing hair, it kept us in stitches. We really enjoyed the show and would like to thank Tom and Shirley for the memorable after noon.

A Very Electrifying Performance



Let us just say WOW!!! Kason's preschool had their Fall/Winter performance tonight and again WOW! There was a lot of energy in the room tonight, and Kason supplied half of it. Mrs. Vickie did a spectacular job coordinating this performance, as parents we can understand how difficult it can be to organize an event such as this with a couple of children let alone with Twelve of them. Thank you Mrs. Vickie for all your hard work and way to steel the show Kason. You definitely stood out and made yourself known. and I love the moves kiddo...

Ali's Christmas Program!!!

So for the last two months, Alison has been participating in the Midvalley School Choir three mornings a week and on Thursday night she belted out the Christmas hits. Alison did very well she showed off her golden pipes and sang her heart out. After the awesome performance we celebrated with a late dinner at Arby's, just us and Grandparents Shafer. Hey it's "good mood food" and it was yummy, we were sure to ring the bell upon exiting the establishment at least 15 to 20 time you could say our experience was Grrrreat!! Way to go Alison you did awesome.






Here are some pictures of the night. Alison and the whole choir, Alison belting out the notes, and Alison and her best friend Ashley who we call her secret twin. Just in case, Alison is the one on the right. The video on the other hand was shot by Laurissa who is still trying to earn her Video legs... I'm currently having problems getting it to load so I'll keep trying... You keep looking...

Laurissa's Passion...

This school year Laurissa has enrolled herself in a theater class and she is loving every minute of it. On Thursday Laurissa had her first school performance, a small performance but a good one in dad's opinion. Dad can sometimes help a little too much by telling her how she can improve the things she is doing when his advise is not wanted. Dad was very impressed by the way she presented herself on the stage, she didn't rush her part and she was not a stiff statue on the stage. It never seems to amaze us how well she does on stage, she truly loves the stage and has a passion for acting. Sorry the video quality in this is not that great and she is on the right..
We Love you Lissa..Keep it up...

Happy Birthday Grams!!!

So Sunday we celebrated Cathy's birthday (Jon's mom), and enjoyed a delicious dinner and dessert. We thought the house was going to burn down with all the "old bags" candles on her cake. I won't tell you how many candles there were but Jon had to light the cake with a blowtorch. We are just fortunate didn't need to break out the fire extinguisher...
See for yourself...

Ode' To Mow-vember...

So as some of you may know November was also known as "Mow-vember", a nationwide effort to raise awareness for men's health by growing a mustache during the entire month of November. Jon thought he would partake in it even though it was against Sarah's wishes. After a month of Sarah putting up with Jon's cavalier look, and Jon putting up with Sarah's snide remarks, Jon went back to the "goat"... All in all I think Jon's was pretty impressive however the fact that there were no pictures taken of Jon during this time period really show how much Sarah hated it.



Besides, no one looked as good as Kason...
