The three younger boys and I drove to Nampa to go on a hike with the cubscouts at the Deer Flat Refugee.

We spent one evening at The Discovery Center exploring the exhibits and we also got to visit with Santa.

At first Levi wasn't sure about Santa but with a little bit of time and visiting they ended up being good friends.

Andrew finished up his wrestling season. He did great! In the regular season out of the 12 matches he only lost 3. At District he won his first match but then lost the last two. He's glad that he tried it, but I think it will be the one and only time he does wrestling.

The youngest three boys and I went to the neighborhood Christmas party.

One of the responsibilities of Nathan's new calling as a High Counselor is that he's in charge of the dessert after the adult session of Stake Conference. Here's a picture of the tasty treat he served.

For the second year, our ward presented a live nativity for our community. Sarah was Mary, again and the three oldest boys were all shepards. It was raining for most of the evening until the end when it snowed. It was a very cold but beautiful evening.

We got lots of snow which made for shoveling, sledding and playing in it.

Sarah, Nathan and I went to their work Christmas party. They had delicious food and a casino set up for the evening. We learned how to play Craps and then gave all our chips to someone else.
