Jacob at work

It has been requested that we post more pics of the kids.... Since we haven't done anything too exciting you get to see us doing our boring, everyday stuff.  This is where Jacob spends most of his time as he does his school work.  He is in his third semester at byu-i, studying graphic design. He works really hard at his classes and we are proud of his efforts!

Emily at the fair

Tonight was a stake yw activity. All the girls showed a project that they have been working on for personal progress. On Emily's left you can see her cross stitch. It was fun to eat fair food and see all the things that people have been creating.

Kind of Funny

Yesterday was a beautiful day here.  The sun was shining and it was comfortable to be outside in long-sleeves.  We took advantage of the nice weather and mowed the lawn one last time before putting the mower away for the winter.  Then, I decided to hang up the outdoor Christmas lights because I hate doing it when it is icy and windy.  So... I've never mowed the lawn and hung Christmas lights on the same day! 

It is good to have Tony back from his trip to D.C.  He had a nice time at his conference, and really enjoyed hanging out with Scott.  I enjoyed working on some projects like patching the living room ceiling, fixing towel hooks that had pulled out of the wall, making freezer meals, putting scrapbooks together from our family trips (clear back from 2008), and organizing our family's important papers and documents. 

One more odd thing.... did you know that chickens will hunt and eat mice?  I was rather amazed to see mine do just that today!  Weird.......
