My little brother Jeph...

Yes, he spells his name with a "ph". Anyway, he and his best friend Trevor left me a voice mail today that I will, without their permission of course, share with the world. Enjoy.

Wrapping it up!

I figured the best way to show all of the fun we had this Christmas season
was to just create a slide show!
At the Simmons' family white elephant exchange we played with new rules!
If you wanted to take a gift you had to challenge that person.
I wanted the Gold Fish so I challenged Mike B. to hop on one leg without switching
legs, whoever lasted the longest, won!
He fell, I won!
Mike and Andy had a leg wrestle, didn't last long, Andy has soccer thighs!
They also had to whistle like old men. I thought I married younger, apparently not the case!

We were happy to see the Santa paid a visit to everyone! Thank you Santa, and thank you everyone for a memorable Christmas!
We love you! Bring on 2009 :)

Merry Christmas to All!!

So Elder's Quorum got out a few minutes early today so I went and sat in Primary and waited for Kimmy. The closing prayer in primary was given by a very special autistic boy. In his prayer he asked Heavenly Father to "please bless us all that we will give, and that we will love, and that we we all be kind to each other because... well, because it's Christmas! And that's what this time of year is about." Anyone who knows this young boy knows that he meant every word of that prayer from his heart. It was a good reminder. Thank you Tage.

The following is a clip of audio from Glenn Beck's radio program. It is the story of the birth of our Savior from the perspective of Mary and Joseph. I hope you all listen and enjoy.

Merry Christmas everybody!

December 2008 catch up!

Mike is a huge Glenn Beck fan so of course when his new book The Christmas Sweater hit stores and tickets went on sale for the show we had our book and tickets! We traveled up to Layton Hills Mall with Jeff and Venita for the book signing and later to the show, after scoring a few extra tickets we helped a few people see the show as well :)

We also got our tree that same day, though it took us all week to finally finish decorating it! We are happy with our first ever Christmas tree! It might be a little sparse with decor but we don't care...we love our tree!
This weekend we attended 2 Christmas parties at my parents home. The Marchant side Saturday night and the Limb side tonight.

Next week we start with the Simmons' family parties!

Hope everyone is having a joyous time of year :)
