December 11, 2011 2 weeks till Christmas!

Devree in front of the Young Women in Excellence.

They did a hillarious version of "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" but it was Jill and Red's adventure through the Book of Mormon. Devree had to step in as Red at the last second. It was so funny and they did a great job.

Shay had the dog all tucked into bed with him just with his paws out but he moved when I went to take the picture.

That is how our dog Low Rider says he is ready for bed.

Shay lets him sleep with him some of the time.

As we sat down to our Sunday dinner, Shay came without a shirt. I told him to get a shirt on. Then he tried to sneak back without pants. I told him to put pants on. He didn't want to. He came back wearing a shirt on the top and a shirt on the bottom. He said "I won!" I told him if he thought that was winning...okay then.

Our Christmas tree we got from the Boy Scouts. We couldn't face cutting our own without Noble.

This is our Nativity flag on our front porch. We put lights over it so it doesn't blow away and in the daytime you can see it well and at night you see the lights.

Devree showing how she keeps up the Advent Nativity scene that Aunt Paula gave us so many years ago.

Shay on top of the house. He put up the lights this year with Dad and then alot by himself.

Standing on top of the house where he actually did white icicle lights then blue on top. It looks good when the breaker doesn't go off.

Here are some odds and ends of pictures. We have been busy but we haven't always got our camera out to take pictures. For example the Ward Christmas Breakfast was fantastic yesterday but I didn't take one picture. We had lots of fun and did some service afterward of making quilts and several people made beautiful cards for Noble that I will send to him on his mission in the Philippines. Many families wrote really wonderful things to Noble. I know it will cheer him up. We are enjoying this wonderful joyous season and celebrating Christ's birth. I love Christmas. Don't you?
