Ice Skating

Add Image
We woke up the day after Christmas all excited to go ice skating. It was Hannah's birthday and she chose to go ice skating. Hannah loved it. She is getting better and better each time we go. She loves how she can skate around without holding on to anything. Tyler went for his first time ever. He wanted someone to hold him the whole time though but he's still little so maybe next year his ankles will be stronger to hold him up. McKay had a relaxing time...he slept the whole time we were there. But hey..... he did it, and that's what matters. He wanted to join in the fun. And like always, Matthew was zipping around the rink. Uncle Ryan and Ethan were in town visiting from Virginia and came with us. Ethan loved it! Fun times!!

Christmas Eve Party

We headed to Cache Valley around 3:00 on Christmas Eve. I did my weekly 2 1/2 hour shift at the Sportsplex gym in the daycare earlier that morning then went home and finished packing up. The party this year was going to be at Mary and Pat's. The kids wanted to leave as soon as possible so they were being my big helpers and were loading the van for us. We first got to my mom's and unpacked and made some Chocolate chip cookies. We had to make sure we saved some for Santa. Once we got to the Warren's, Santa's arrival was soon after that. Tyler just stared at him. He didn't cry once. He was even willing to sit on his lap with no hesitation! I think he thought Santa was pretty cool! We ate our dinner and played a fun game that Mary came up with. Before the kids went to bed they wrote a little note to Santa, each writing something. Then they made sure that their plate for santa was ready..... cookies and milk and some carrots for the reindeer.

Piano Recital

Matt's piano recital at his teacher Carrie's home

Right after Hannah's dance review we had to quickly get over to Kaysville to Matt's piano recital. It didn't start until 7:30 so it worked out perfectly. Matthew looked so sharp in his suit. When it was his turn his teacher realized she did not have her part of the sheet music for the duet that they were doing together. She looked and looked for it while everyone sat waiting for her. She gave up and just made him do it on his own. It was good.... but you didn't get the full effect without both of them doing it together. Then just before the last person did their peice she remembered where she had put it! She ran and grabbed it and her and Matthew got to do it. It was so much better! It sounded so AWESOME. I was so happy she found it, after all... he's practiced so hard and it would have been a bummer if he couldn't have performed it. It ended up being a great night! Grandma linnea and grandma Leah loved hearing him play too!!

Christmas Dance Review

December 2009

A fun part of the Christmas holiday was being able to watch the kids perform. Here is Hannah
getting ready to dance, waiting her turn very patiently. She danced to the song 'Santa Clause is Coming to Town'. Grandma Leah and grandma Linnea came with us. We thought it was way cute. She did a great job!! She just looked so cute and little on that stage. I just want to keep her little for as long as I can! If she heard me say that she would be very quick to let me know that she's not little... she is big now. Tyler is little...not me.
