Christmas is coming upon us quickly!! What is your favorite way to shop? Mine--anyway that gets a good deal. I love Black Friday. I love on-line deals; I love combining sales with coupons! Do you have your Credit card number memorized? Well I do now; I think that means that I have done a lot of ordering on-line!!! But they were all excellent deals!!
What do you get your Dad? Mostly my family reads this blog, but I'll ask anyway. Is dad always the hardest person to shop for?
One more thing: Swagbucks. Have you heard of this? I just joined in late October. I have already earned $10 from Amazon, and on to another $5 from Amazon. I just search the internet using their Search Engine, and I earn Swagbucks. Try it out (please let me refer you :). So if interested send me an email, I'll send an invite).

With all of our yummy fruit, we made some yummy desserts. One week we had apple crisp, peach cobbler twice, and a pear pie. Pictured above was Anna's choice: an apple tart. Using the neat apple/peeler/corer gadget.

Garrett is anticipating his first day of school this Thursday.
Nick and I are going to coach Kegan's and Garrett's soccer team this year. Last year Kegan was on a team with a bunch of girls. He really wanted more boys on the team. So I secured 4 boys for our team, and the other 4 are girls. First game went pretty well. We do have some things to work on though. The kids chose to be the Silver Twisters. Kegan scored 4 goals.

Ok, so that may seem a little materialistis, but that is only one kind of great day. I love it when things are found that were lost. This weekend we have a wonderful opportunity to hear the words of God from excellent leaders. We will be instructed and might even realize we have found something that we have lost, or find new inspiration that will help us in our lives. The 179th General Conference will begin on Saturday, April 4 at 10:00 am MDT. You can listen on-line (www.lds.org), or it will be broadcast on BYU TV. Here is a great activity packet for kids as they listen: http://www.scribd.com/doc/13298891/2009-April-Conference-Packet (I did not make this, just sharing it).

Kegan is eager to follow in Nick's ski tracks. He likes to go off jumps and even snowplowed down a Black Diamond run. All the kids enjoy going off little jumps, I'll have to get a video of that next time. They also enjoy going on litte trails through the trees.

Just 13 days ago, we visited Grandpa. He played a game of chess with Kegan and hosted dinner. The above picture was taken then. The kids were getting a little goofy, but we really enjoyed visiting him. Before this last year, I have never lived in the same state as any of my grandparents. During 2008, we visited Grandpa several times during the year. He even played frisbee with us this summer.
Both of my grandmothers passed away at the end of 2007, so in just a short time, I went from having 3 living grandparents to none. I am grateful for the legacy they have left and love them dearly.
