We are thankful!

I am most thankful for my eternal family (big and small).
Summer is taking a culinary class at school. She impressed us all with her delicious and beautiful pies.
Sydney had a great time getting out the china and setting a beautiful table.
Ty peeled potatoes and poured Martinelli's.
Jason and I are so thankful for a fabulous little family to spend the holiday with.

Blessings Bags

Ty was in charge of Family Home Evening last night. We put together 'blessings bags' to give the homeless people that we see around town. In each bag they get:
Soap, toothpaste & brush, Kleenex, a water bottle, a slim jim, crackers, candy, and a note.
It was fun to see our different personalities come through in our notes. We hope they enjoy this little something as much as we enjoyed making them.
Jason, Summer, and I will keep them in our cars and hand them out when we see someone in need.

Swim Meet in a storm!

We got to head over to Hardin, MT in a snow storm for a swim meet on Saturday. I forgot my camera, so please forgive the iPhone photos. Here were the results:
Summer got 2 firsts, Syd anchored her relay for a first place victory, and Ty DQed in a few due to his kick. That's common. He has some work to do, but he has major potential. The one race he didn't DQ in, he got 2nd! Sum and Ty were also picked by their coaches to race in the relays.

My favorite part....the last 3 individual races, Summer and Sydney raced each other. Summer always beat Syd, but Syd wasn't too far behind. It was an awesome (yet cold) day!

The Corn Maze with Grandad

While we were in Hawaii, Grandad took Sydney and Ty to the corn maze. There was a lot more to it than just corn. Looks like they had a ton of fun.
