Red Neck Sledding

Kevin hooked up the hood to the Bronco and they were off to the fields for some sledding! This was definitely their favorite activity this winter! We have done this with cousins and friends. It's such a great time!

2013 Christmas

 Samantha was Mary for the community Nativity this year!

They were blinded by the camera flash! It's not often all three have their eyes closed in a picture!

Busy December

 We went to the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas and had a great time!
 We cleaned out an out building so we could use it as a gym on the farm.
 We joined my family at Thanksgiving Point to watch Jerusalem. After we made blessing bags as our Christmas service project this year.
 We visited Grandma Erickson at her assisted living home. She is doing so well there!
 Derrick finished his first semester of karate. I joined him and we have loved learning self defense. I just need to learn to block my nose better since that is where Derrick always aims! We love our Si Fu!
 Samantha played in the 5th-6th grade band concert and even did a short solo. She is sounding better and better!
 And look! Our nearly 12 year old lost another tooth!
My birthday!

Winter Dance Recital

Samantha and KayDee started taking dance this year in September and have really enjoyed it. They have performed at craft fairs and care centers already. They had their winter recital in December to show the dance they learned for ballet. Both of them were in a lift for their dance which was extra fun. They will start jazz dance next semester. They both did a great job at the recital and we loved watching them!
