New Year's Eve Fon-don't

Russ and I had the great idea to celebrate New Year's Eve with a fondue party. Our guests were awesome:

Cindy Lynn & Mahon,

Ben and his cool wife Jenny,

and Jeremy and the lovely Maria
and cute Addie.

As you might be noticing from the previous pictures, while our guests were great the fondue had some problems.

It was thick and un-dippable and stringy. Yummy, but not cooperative. Luckily Ben had the brilliant idea of using the kitchen shears to cut it...

S0 much for dipping things!

Fortunately for all the chocolate dessert fondue turned out much better!

This Beautiful Little Girl will be getting her Name and Blessing on January 3rd, 2010.
I believe that a circle of Brethren and Brethren In Laws would be quite a sight.
Sacrament meeting will be beginning at 1 pm.

To get there, Exit I-15 at #334, or 700 South, Clearfield.
West to 1000 East, and left (south) until 1225 south (into a neighborhood) and straight to the church.

Look forward to seeing all those for whom it is possible.
Much Love,
Sam, Emily, and Kayla.

The Best Dress(es)

These are a couple dresses Cindy has made for Lilly. I owe her pictures, so I thought I would post them for all to see.

I have been Called as Ward mission leader.
The bishopric of Hnedersonville was reorganized. Jerry Hyder new bishop, Larry Shelton first counselor.

We got 6 inches of snow but on the top of laurel park mountain did not loose power for 7 days like the last time snow fell this hard.

We are happy healthy and having fun.

Addie is probably going to have surgery within the 6 months to fix the crosseyed thing. We have seen the best in the south east he works out of Asheville WOO HOO

That is all for now. If anyone needs us CALL HOME because our cell phones dont get great coverage on top of the mountain.

Love Jeremy and Maria

I made a little music video for those of you not lucky enough to have two cute rodents in your house to watch.

A nice salesman at Pet Smart introduced me to something new--the Silent Wheel. It is.

We are so very grateful!

Family Christmas Party

Hey, Family!

We haven't heard any plans for getting together for Christmas this year. We're trying to coordinate plans in several directions and wanted to make sure we can fit everything in. What do you think about getting together on Monday, Dec. 21st for Family Home Evening for dinner and gift exchange? We could come down south if someone wants to host it, or if you guys would come, we could do it up here. But it might make it late getting back home on a school night, and we're a bit cramped for space. But we could do it if you want to come.

Another option is coming up here mid-afternoon on Saturday, Dec 19th. We could have lunch, then everyone could get back home before dark.

Another option is doing something between Christmas and New Years. We're just not sure if we'll be here - we might be heading East to see the family. Not sure yet.

Let us know what you think.

Love you,

DAD and Ramona

Crafts and Lilly - An unending story

Hey everyone. Well, if anyone needs a good craft to keep the kiddos busy here is a fun one. Lilly could seriously be doing crafts all day every day. We did these with toilet paper rolls, paper, printed sheet music, and old baby socks. Cute aren't they.

Oh, and since I didn't ever put this one up, here is our ghost house we did for Halloween, made from tissue boxes, paint, and tissues!
