Well

Since I started using Facebook I have totally neglected my blog!

They aren't the same thing, it's different. But I will try not to be so bad from here after.

Hmmmm... Let's see, there's so much I could write about today, I don't know where to begin.

Jacob started wrestling last week. We went to his meet on Friday against Cooper HS, there wasn't enough kids in his weight class to have him wrestle, but it was good to see how they do the points and how it all goes. We stuck around and watched Junior Varsity (Jake's JV) and Varsity. The skinny kids were fast and all over the place and it was really exciting watching them. I had to spit my gum out because my jaw was getting tired from chomping my enthusiasm out. The bigger kids were slower and more weight throwing around than moves. Jake's a heavy weight. He's almost 6 feet and weighs 250, but he's lost 4 lbs. since he started working out for wrestling. I think he needs to stretch more, some of these kids had to pretzel themselves to keep from being pinned.

Then we had our ward Christmas party and Joyanna's class sang Jingle Bells, and Rudolph. They were soooo cute!

Jaeden was Cindy Lou Who in the reading of the Grinch. My husband and son took the first one.

Her line was, "Santy Clause, why? Why are you taking our Christmas tree? Why!?"

One fun thing they had at the children's table was some plaster ornaments for the kids to color, and then a Christmas tree the kids could hang their ornaments on until the party was done.

Then Sunday we did break the sabbath and get our Christmas tree. If we waited until there was a day all of us could go (our family tradition is to go cut one down) we wouldn't be able to go until the 20th, and that's just too late to make it worth it to me. So here we are cutting our tree down. The kids tried to smile but it was so freezing, it was hard.

Here's my manly men after they took down our 6 foot solid wood spruce.

I really like this picture I took of Jake

Last year after Christmas I stocked up on ornaments that weren't glass. I got tired of the balls breaking and leaving glass all over. I'll post pictures later of the tree.
