Well Dallas had his knee surgery today! It was a long day for both of us... We were at the surgical center at 11:00 (a half hour early... the weather was horrible) they took him back and I waited and waited... made a beanie (new project, Scott Linsley from my work taught me how to crochet them) then they came and got me and took me to recovery... He did way good and it went super well... they fixed the meniscus, cleaned up a bunch of stuff from his first surgery (back when we were dating) and he is now home (we got home around 5:00pm) sleeping on the couch (he can't get up the stairs to the bedroom, plus he thought that it might be too dangerous... i guess i kick!) So now it is my bedtime so I can go to work tomorrow! Hope you all have a great Christmas!

Today we had a Christmas type lesson for Young Women class, what our pres. does is a little different. Every year we have a Christmas Breakfast, we go pick up the girls that don't usually come, in pj's or what ever, and this year we had an egg pizza; cinnamon rolls, and juice & fruit. Then we give them there Christmas gifts this year, a bell ornament and a yarn scarf (thanks Lacey) and share a favorite Christmas memory or our favorite Christmas story. I am so thankful for the two young women we have right now. I feel that I am so blessed to have this calling to teach me how to serve others. Our Young Womens program is few in numbers but I think that they have great faith and that helps me to appreciate the job I have to help the ones who are not quite there yet. Well that it my little spill for today! Hope you all have a great Christmas!

The first good snow storm... this starts off my Christmas season! Well we have been busy getting ready for the holidays... The first of Dec. I made table decorations for our ward Christmas party. They turned out way cute... I will post a pic once i take one of the sample. Then I had to get my Christmas presents ready for my work friends... so off to Tai Pan to get some ideas! I came up with something way cute thanks to Dallas he helped me with the idea... I found these way cute candy jars... filled them with little cranberries and provided a way good jello recipe with the jello's inside the jars. Now I am making scarfs for my young women for Sunday and making sure all of the paperwork is done for Dallas' knee surgery (that will be next tuesday!) So that is what I have been up to...not much fun but way busy... Sorry NO PICTURES! Hopefully I will have some next time! Happy Holidays!
