"This cute snowman came home beautifully outlined with mini marshmallows. The terror twins made quick work of them. Glue is totally edible right?"
I also missed the Christmas program at school because I was sent to Provo that morning on assignment to "find BYU students excited about the bowl game" (it was the last day of finals. The first four students I finally found, all said they "weren't into sports").
So JB took pictures and video for me. See Ben on the back row:
Max on the back row:
Also this December and on through the season, Max and Ben take turns going with JB to Utah basketball games.
May I also add here, that Ben was pretty funny during the Las Vegas bowl, where Utah and BYU played each other. I was watching downstairs in my Y gear, and JB was upstairs in his U gear. Ben tried to change shirts during the game depending on how each team was doing. He'd also run down to see how I was doing. Not good, but there's always next year.
One Saturday morning this month, my parent company had a party for all radio, TV, and newspaper employees. When I heard Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper would be there, I knew I had to invite the cousins, who are now (hopefully) becoming as obsessed as my boys about the franchise.
I took them to the TV set, too.
Santa was also there. And I was worried my boys wouldn't look good in the picture. I should have been more focused on me, haha! But look at Ben -- I die.
JB wasn't at my work party, because he was helping get our ward party ready. We got there just as it started. And JB (in one of his mom's amazing Christmas vests), read a book to everyone.
Also happening in December, much snow. Already more snow than we got all last winter.
I have this whole week of Christmas off from work. The best part is sleeping past 3:30 AM, to be able to wake up around 7 AM and see my bed-heads in the morning happily crunching their cereal. Another plus, I was able to go with them this year to see the window displays downtown.
I'm very happy I was opening my eyes in this picture JB took of us. These boys are so handsome. It's a busy time of year, but I think we are doing a good job focusing on family and being together.
