Weekend in Salt Lake City

We got tickets the Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert again this year.
We got a Hotel room for Saturday night.
Kids' favorite part is starting the weekend with swimming in the hotels pool.
They always have a good time.
After swimming we walked around Temple Square.
The lights are always so beautiful.

Cassie loved getting her picture taken in front of the Temple.
I'm sure Jason had a good time as well.
This year Riley was at the school Christmas Ball the same night so we invited Grandma Nelson to join us.
She was so excited to come with us.......she hadn't been to a Tabernacle concert before or hadn't been to see the lights on Temple Square for awhile.
After this we went and had dinner at Applebee's. It was a really good evening.
The concert was Sunday morning and was beautiful. Scott and I have been three years in a row and the kids twice. Every time is great. I must say the Sunday concert is my favorite because the Prophet will talk at the end and give the guess performers a gift. It is a pretty neat experience.

Gingerbread Houses

The Cousin's have fun every year making Gingerbread house.
It really brings out the creativeness in the kids.
It is really fun to get together.
Riley's finished product. I love his decorated tree on the outside of is house.
Jason says his house got hit by a snow storm.
Cassie's green path to the house is fun. I love her snowman.
I had fun making mine this year.
Here is our village of houses.

The table setting was beautiful.
The food spread Divine.
Mom bought beautiful flowers.
Mom made these great Turkey nut cups for us.
Now that is a great looking plate of food!!!!
Even Cassie cleaned her plate.
The Cunningham's enjoyed themselves.
I think Prestyn eat more mashed potatoes then anyone else.
Sit and digest for pie.

Happy #13 Jason

Happy Birthday Jason!
My second teenager.
I think Jason had a good birthday.
We had a good celebration at the Strong's at potluck.
And of course we had a celebration with Grandma Nelson too.
Jason likes that he gets Halloween themed cakes and cupcakes.
Jason's birthday was on a Friday so after work we took him out to dinner at his favorite place "The Chinese Gourmet"
Then we took him to Walmart and picked up his new DSi gameboy........
He was so HAPPY!!!!!! He is my gamer child.
I Love You Jason.

Deer Hunting Weekend!

The first weekend of the deer hunt Scott and Riley stayed in the "deer hunting" trailer and me and the other kids stayed at our land in our other trailer.
Saturday night we drove over and visited the deer hunters.
They were road hunting.
Well right after we turned around and were going back to the trailer to wait for them Scott shot his deer.
I hiked up the mountain and took some pictures of them dragging it down the mountain.

It was a pretty nice three point.

This is what I worked on at the trailer.
Halloween treat bags...

And Christmas cards.......

Football Fun!

Last year I took Riley to a couple of BYU football games so this year I decided to take the whole family.
It is the 25th anniversary of the 1984 Cougar National Championship. Notice the lite blue "Y" flag on the left and the dark blue flag back on the right. The lite blue one is what the college colors where in 1984.

My brother came with me and the kids to the first game.
(Scott hates football by the way)
Teenagers can't ever look like they are having fun with there family but I know Riley had fun both games.
Jason and Cassie in there football outfits.
I love football and I'm glad I was able to take my family to two games.
After the first game Cassie wanted her picture taken with the flag at the stadium.
The second game was at night and Scott came to this one.
(That is how much he loves me and his family)
We had a great time at both games.
By the way these are called "cougar tails"
It is the biggest maple bar I have ever seen in my life.
They were soooooo good.
I think Scott would even go to another game if I buy him another cougar tail.
