Christmas 2010

Merry Christmas Everyone we had a lot of fun with the kids this morning, Theresa did an awesome job of making sure everything was perfect and Cheri was a big help with Christmas breakfast and helping Santa unload all the giftsCicily got cash and a new camera which she wasn't expecting but was very happy to get because her old one is broken and is all fuzzy
Santa brought Kenya lots of clothes and a life like walking dog?
Santa got Hawke a 4 lane 25 foot race car track

So far this is my favorite gift and the kids seem to like it as well

Christmas Eve

Dennis and Cheri spent the night with us so Dennis and I drank good beer
And sat around the campfire while Theresa and Cheri helped Santa

Southland School Program

Kenya had her school program today where they sang Christmas songs
Olivia came to watch the performance and I was able to get a picture of Kenya's two best friends together
I had a copier rental end on Tuesday and I had to pick up the copier and this was my challenge, I was able to get it down the stairs but across the rocks and up the ramp was a real challenge fortunately someone walked by and helped me up the ramp

Fly fishing the upper provo river

I brought this one home and had him for lunch - The cool thing about winter fishing is you don't need any containers because you can just throw them into the nearest snowbank and viola frozen solid, We caught about 10 or 12 fish and kept 6 for dinner and returned the rest for future fishing adventures
Will was on fire today he caught the most fish today but I caught the biggest

Why our kids don't sleep with us

Utah beats BYU 17-16

BYU was robbed! That interception in the 4th quarter where the receiver was down should have been overturned, Don't get me wrong I'm glad Utah won but they are much more capable.
By far the luckiest game the Ute's have ever had! BYU kicked our ass and if they were better organized they would have won big I'm not sure what is going on with the Ute's but they sure looked allot better before the Air-force game than they have since then. - Raphael
