We have been having an awesome new year. We celebrated with Ky, Tammie, Kolten, Teara, Megan, Spencer, Locey and Skyla. They came for skiing and snowboarding. We had so much fun playing "Beattles" Rock Band and Connect 4x4 and doing puzzles. Todd had made himself a puzzle box and everyone would go and do a few peices of the 750 peice puzzle and we started a new puzzle.
Devree had her play on Friday night. It was cancelled from early December because of the weather. Devree and her friend Allanah were the "shining stars" of their plays. We could actually hear them and their acting was funny in a bunch of deap pans.
Saturday was spent watching Noble and Shay play Young Men's basketball at the Stake Center. We laughed at the "Big" guys that were twice the size of Shay and his friend Isaac. The other team would hover 2 or 3 guys that were twice their size and sure enough Isaac shot the basketball low between their legs. Then one of our teamates threw the ball at on of the other Deacons and he was playing dodge ball I guess because he ducked out of the way. Then his brother tried to make a basket and the ball got stuck between the hoop and the backboard. But we still won.
I told the family that Costco only sells "Organic" ketchup now for an extra hefty price. Todd commented that isn't ketchup organic anyway? Then he reallized that the tomatos would not have pesticides. Devree asked "Why is everything have to be 'organic' now and why do we have the 'Hippy' style coming back with people wearing head bands and the clothing, peace signs etc. Todd commented "Everything comes back." Shay shot out "Elvis isn't coming back!" Then we started laughing and Todd commented "But there are those that say he didn't ever leave."
I just want to share what I just heard on the BYU channel. The speaker told the story of President Kimball how he knelt down and prayed that he would not break the Word of Wisdom or steal or break other commandments when he was 14. He made his decision and he didn't have to keep making those decisions when he was faced with them in the future because he had already made up his mind and he didn't have to worry about it in the future. That is what I am going to teach for Family Home Evening tonight.
