24 hour challenge pictures

Here is Steve's version of reading the Book of Mormon!

To see more pics from the challenge I posted about earlier, check out my mom's blog.


She has a lot up now, but she is going to put more up.

She has pics of everyone sleeping at some point. Hehe.

I did too!

I wish I could figure out the method to blogger uploading. It seems like every time I upload, they go on to the blog in a weird and different order than I intended! Grrr!

Anyway, here are the pics of my hair. My cousin Kim came in to town and did a great job. I am making her my official "hair girl" from now on!

Kylie got a cut too.

Hair Cuts-Payton is up first

She actually got cut last, but here is her picture debut.

Polar Bear Swim

I should have read the thermometer to see how cold the water was. He swam all the way across but he says he doesn't want to do it again. I don't blame him. That pool is COLD!

24 hour challenge

Steve is in Young Mens. He works with the priests. My dad is the YM president and my mom works with the mia maids. Starting yesterday at 7pm my parents had all of the youth over and their goal was to read the Book of Mormon in 24 hours. They finished today at 6pm! I am so proud of all of them for doing this. The leaders, teens, and our bishop got it done! Steve is snoring beside me now, but he was up all night. I hope all those kids got something out of this experience.

On a side note, around breakfast time a few of the kids jumped in the pool for a Polar Bear Challenge. Wes was so excited about this that I took him over and he jumped in too. I took pictures. Does that make me a bad mom? Letting my 6 year old swim in an outdoor pool that is not heated? hehe

I'll be sharing pics later of that!

A Tent for Christmas

Steve and Kylie slept in it the night after we put it up. They came in at 5:30 and it was 38! Too cold for this mama.

Rose Parade

I love the Rose Parade. This year I went with my kids, my mom, my brother Greg, sister in law Jess, and my 2nephews to see the floats before the parade. I took over 80 photos! How is that possible. I didn't even take that many on CHristmas day. I uploaded many of them to slide.com

Here is a slideshow to see some of the work that goes into these things. They are so amazing in person!

Breakfast with Santa, early Dec

I'm behind with some posts here so let me try to get us caught up.
