Christmas time adventures

Something Stan and I have always talked about doing it taking the kids downtown to see the lights and hear the Tabernacle Choir practice. Well this year we decided it was do or die. Of course we picked the worst night to go because between Springville and American Fork there were three accidents and little movement. It was nuts but we were going no matter what. We decided to take tracks and Emma loved it. Stan's sister Sarah came with us also. Once we finally got downtown we decided to walk around the lights before going to the choir. Tyson loved the lights! He kept oooohing and aaahhhing. It was pretty cute. It also was not that crowded which was nice. Then we went to the Conference Center and it was amazing!!! Stan and I have never been inside it before and it was just cool! The feeling as you walk it was close to the same feeling as going to the temple. Let me just say that it is HUGE. I know it looks big on TV but in person it is bigger. Emma loved the pretty music but was ready to go after about 5 minutes because as she says it was too much like church and church is too hard to sit through. It is so fun when the kids can verbalize their complaints, sometimes. It just reminds me that she is getting to be such a big girl. Because we had so much fun we decided we are going to go again when it gets a little warmer and we can spend the day downtown and do more things. I definatly recommend it to anyone who lives close enough to do it. And the greatest thing is you can bring the kids!!!

Happy 28 Stan!!

On December 5th Stan turned 28!!! We had a great day. The kids and I took Stan treats to work and he about shot me because he did not want the guys at the office to know it was his birthday. Then for dinner, not to blow my own horn, I made the most amazing ribs!!!! They were better than any restaurant I have ever been to. Then we had cheesecake pie for dessert. He had a great birthday according to him.
