Christmas Caroling

This was the Stott's annual Christmas party and hay ride to sing christmas carols. The kids love it, and look forward to the party every year. We had a lot of fun, but it sure was cold that night.

Snow in Vegas

What a beautiful sight, and I can't believe I missed it. I went to take the girls to Zion, UT to see the snow.  Jeff had to stay home and work so he got some pictures. 


fun in the snow

It was so fun to get out of Vegas and head for the snow. I loved every minute of being at the Stott's cabin.  Relaxing by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate. It was priceless to see the girls faces when they got to play in the snow. 

I was so nervous when I woke up and saw how much it snowed. I was wishing Jeff was with me to drive home. It was scary for me to drive in this but I made it home. Phew! Lots of prayers!
I felt so bad for the cold cows... I would be really mad if I were them!
You gotta love Zion! It really was a beautiful sight!

Bingo Night at the school

Liv would just fill up her card and say "I won" and get so mad at me when I didn't take her up to get her prize. She was so proud of herself for filling up all the squares.

Celine and Daddy were a good team! They even ended up winning one of the rounds.
They didn't win anything, but they sure had a lot of fun!
This is what Celine ended up winning... a cheese grater. I actually needed a new cheese grater, so that couldn't have worked out better. 

More random pictures of Liv

I can't keep up with her... 

She decided to get into Celine's play make-up 

She rubbed it all over her...

...and all over my carpet. I had to have Jack the carpet cleaner come. He got it out... He is the best! 

After she created a beautiful green center piece with my glass dishes she decided to enjoy some peanut butter right from the jar. 
I found her like this. Enough said.

She was putting her carrots into her sandwich. "Mommy I'm making a cake. Do you want do blow out the candles?"
Getting into the pantry again. Livia is getting herself dressed these days.  Pink dress with Christmas pants..Nice outfit liv!
She was totally serious about this look and would not let me fix her. Yea, we went out that way! 
Once again she put a lid on her finger that I had a hard time getting off. 
I started to get nervous, but I finally got it off with olive oil. You think she learned her lesson from the last time she did this same thing!!!

Good thing you are so dang cute Liv!

Food Storage

So I am over safety preparedness and food storage in my ward. And I made a goal that I would have a year supply of food storage by the end of the year. I can't really encourage people to get theirs if I don't have it myself. I already had some, but not all. It wasn't as bad I thought it was going to be. I actually became obsessed. Its such a good feeling to know that you are prepared and have food if anything were to happen.

Thanks Celine-My little Helper
She held all the bags and even decorated them with stars, moons, and her name. :o)

Bagging in Process 

Dried Carrots. I'm sure they will be good when I'm starving. 

What a mess it made!
I thought I was done right here, until I went to put this away and found 2 more 50 pounds bags of wheat.... ARGH!  Ok, now my next goal it to be able to cook a good meal with what I have. Can't be that hard... right?
