Day 335

B rocked the 6-story climbing wall at Lyndon's work Christmas party at the science center! She made it to the top in record time, and wowed everyone watching. She loves it and certainly has a talent for it!

Day 334

Made some of this gorgeous crusty peasant bread for the first time and LOVED it! The best part? NO KNEADING! I'll be making this again, really soon.

Day 333

The snow is still new enough for me to find it breathtakingly beautiful. But ask me again in March when I'm finally sick and tired of it!

Day 332

Starting to save boxes for Christmas wrapping! Fun to anticipate all of the good times, but it sure is making a mess of my craft room!

Day 331

Lyndon got into the spirit of Christmas by decorating his office space! Can you hear the jingle bells now?

Day 330

One of those modern conveniences that I have a love/hate relationship with. I love having nice, wrinkle-free clothes, but I DETEST ironing. I guess you can't have your cake and eat it, too!

Day 329

A chilly day at the temple! At least we can leave the cold and wind outside and find refuge inside it's doors.

Day 328

After a hugely successful mini session blitz, I have been spending a LOT of one-on-one time with this laptop of mine. Me and Photoshop? We're tight. Time to get back to work!

Day 327

Agribition is back, and this year JJ's class went on a field trip! Lyndon was the lucky parent volunteer and the kids had a blast! Especially around the HUGE farm machinery. Good times.

Day 326

The Christmas trees are up and lit at Lyndon's work downtown. I think the Christmas spirit is creeping in and it's not even December, yet! I think I'll give in. I love the world at Christmas time.

Day 325

More snow. It's been an unbelievable month of snow, snow, snow! I wonder how much will be here by Christmas!

Day 324

So fun!! My very first interview for a podcast! The fabulous Melissa Shanhun interviewed me for a podcast on her website "Digital Scrapbooking HQ" and I was SO nervous. She put me right at ease, though, and I got right into it. Loved it! You can listen to it here:

Day 323

Um....Christmas lights already? Am I the only one who is thinking that it's a little early, yet?

Day 322

Superstore is giving out HUGE poinsettias with a minimum grocery purchase. I don't normally start seeing these until December! Oh, well, bring on Christmas!

Day 320

Science Fair day at the school, and TJ did her project on RockSlides. Her display was awesome, and I loved the working rockslide demonstration, too. I know she'll get a great mark!

Day 319

Lyndon joined with the Young Men on their activity to play "Laser Tag". Rough life, I know, but someone's gotta do it!

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Day 318

Learning math by counting and making patterns with Smarties! Now that is what I call homework!

Monday, November 12, 2012

Day 317

We braved the snowy roads to visit the museum on a cold and wintery holiday Monday. It had been a while since we had been there, and we enjoyed the time indoors. But what a gloriously beautiful winter day!

Day 316

Measuring the amount of snow after a crazy big snowfall last night. We hit well over a foot! We are seeing record snowfalls for November, and we aren't even half way through the month, yet! Crazy!

Day 315

We love going to the movies, and seeing Skyfall with our friends, the Cuellars, was awesome!

Friday, November 9, 2012

Day 314

Exploring a new exhibit at the Science Center on our day off! JJ is seeing how fast she can flap her "wings" and how fast she would need to, to lift off!

Thursday, November 8, 2012

Day 313

Remembering our fallen soldiers and veterans in a Remembrance day assembly at the school. JJ and B got to represent their classes by placing wreaths and BB sang in the choir. TJ had a speaking role, but was (unfortunately) feeling sick today. But, we all took some time to remember.

Day 312

Our YW group got busy creating invites for our up coming Young Women in Excellence night! I love how this group of girls all get along and lift one another. It's fabulous to behold.

Day 311

Feeling creative today, and thankful for a husband who supports my hobbies! I love crafting!

Day 309

Another peaceful Sabbath day. I love having an excuse to rest from worldly care and focus on what matters most.

Saturday, November 3, 2012

Day 308

With the sun rising later in the day, Lyndon has more opportunities to capture some gorgeous color in his morning photos at work! I love the golden light reflecting on this building. Gorgeous!

Day 307

When it rains, then freezes, it makes for some slippery roads and sidewalks. Both JJ and I sustained ice-related knee injuries today. Time for some cuddles and hot chocolate to make it all better :)

Day 306

Trying to make this a ritual in my life. Now, to stick to it!
