Columbia for the Mitchman

Our Mitchell is leaving for Columbia.  He had his missionary farewell.  Soo fabulous.  He looked soo handsome and did such a nice job.  He will be a fabulous missionary.  Lots of enthusiasm and excitement.  They won't be lacking in fun in columbia.  We always have fun when Mitchell is around.  We rock climbed (well, I didn't - too fat for the harness) and played laser tag with him a few weeks ago.  LOVE him.  Can't believe it will be two years before we see his smiling face again!!

a Championship Game

For the first time in 4 years, Andrew's football team made it to the playoffs.  They won the first game, and so they were in the last game for the Championship.  It snowed like CRAZY!!!   They played a great game in tons of snow.  It was really cold.  But they came up short and lost!  Good ending to a GREAT season..

The Sing a Long

My favorite thing at Christmas is the Song a Long at the Energy solutions arena.  we go and have an orchestra and we sing along with the words on the jumbo tron.  So we went.  Michelle and family didn't go because they went to a concert called forgotten carols.  she also took Brooke.  I didn't want to go (no money also was a deciding factor...) because I wanted to go to the sing a long.  We took Gma and Gpa.  Andrew and Abi were so fabulous about helping everyone into the arena.  price is right and we had treats for 1/2 price.  So we did our best to support them and had popcorn, nachos, chicken strips and fries, and a drink.  This was after we got the free donut.(I could have lived without the donut...and I love donuts).   I'll post the two pictures I took when. Figure it out how to get more memory without paying...

the Sing A Long makes me hate Christmas just a little bit less.  So did the nativity at Liberty park that we went to on Friday!  echos of Christmas.  Everyone should go to these functions...

A lost tooth

Jack lost his first tooth last night.  He came running up in the middle of the night to show me his tooth.  He put it under his pillow and the tooth fairy brought him $2.00.  WOW.  He was soo excited now he can put his name on the board at school.

Yahoo!!

Since I started that post, now Jack has lost BOTH of his front teeth.  All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth is his new favorite song...really he doesn't even know it.  He was soo excited he forgot to put the second tooth under his pillow for the tooth fairy.  Maybe I'll have to remind him tonight that he should do that!!  (I wouldn't want to miss out on two more dollars)  I had better remember to have TWO dollars in my wallet!
