'Twas the Day After Christmas....

It was the day after Christmas and all through the one was home, not even a mouse!  I went to bed fairly early Christmas day and headed out with the kids on the 26th to go see the Bartholomews in North Carolina.  We loved seeing Daniel & Amy and their kids.  I especially wanted to see Ila and Lizzy who were home for Christmas break.

We had fun hanging out, playing games and visiting.  During the afternoon we went to the North Carolina Museum of Art...just their walking trails. We had a nice walk and went out to the bridge that goes over the freeway.

I completed the invitation given by President Nelson to read the Book of Mormon by the end of the year.  I finished up that day.  YAY!  I definitely learned even more and enjoyed feeling the spirit while I read.

After dinner I visited more with Amy and Lizzy and it was time to go home.  While I was there Amy gave me a birthday present!  So sweet!  I LOVE Lip Smackers and Dove Chocolate.

Thursday morning Clark and Cal came with me to help with a soup kitchen.  Our ward provided lunch to anyone who came in.  I was grateful for all the sisters that pitched in with food, money and help!

Thursday evening of Christmas week we met up with the Petersons again at Ruby's Arcade.  We used the money my mom gifted us for Christmas for here.  After dinner and some pool, we did duck pin bowling.

A lot of snow has melted at the ski place we go.  We saw lots of deer one night.  Cal was going on some ski ramps when a bunch of deer ran right in front of it.  That really scared him.

Elden wanted to make a pumpkin roll over Christmas.  We made the pumpkin cake part one night.  He got distracted so I just froze the pumpkin roll.
