Kneeling Santa

I have one of these statues in my home and it is by far the favorite christmas decoration of everyone in my family. Two years ago, when we went to put away Christmas, my son wanted to keep this out for the whole year.

One last thought before I sign off until 2009! In Primary last Sunday, during her sharing time on Christmas, one of the primary counselors read the following scripture: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Begotten Son."

To make this more personal to ourselves and to our children, remove the word "world" and put in a name.

For God so loved "Mason", that He gave His only Begotten Son.

Merry Christmas Everyone

So after the holidays, I am going to "REWIND" my life and talk about thanskgiving and the wonderful blogging ladies that I was able to have lunch with!!

Okay, the winner of my daughter's book is Lisa Lou from "Is that a garage door on my ceiling?" Wahoo!! Congratulations! Lisa, if you will get me your address I will have my daughter sign a copy for you and will ship it out to you. Email me at!!!

Book Giveaway!!

Reader's Digest version of my Thanksgiving Holiday:

Drove 10 hours, went to Twilight within an hour and a half of getting into Utah, had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner, lunched with blogging buddies (will post about that later~!), went to the temple, made a quick trip to Urgent Care (I know now what a gall bladder attack feels like) spent a day shopping in Park City, had a great family dinner at my daughter's and SIL's home and got to meet the parents of my missionary son's companion. Jam packed!!

I will blog about a couple of these things later, but first things first and that is my daughter's book has been published and is available for sale! But I will be giving one away for free signed by the author!! Yah, I have that good of connections.

Leave me a comment and that enters you once. Link it on your blog for three more entries! Make sure you let me know so I can check your blog! Entry deadline will be Dec. 15 at 5pm.

If anyone is interested, it can be purchased through but right now it is cheaper through Cedar Fort Publishing and I think it ships faster through them too. The book has almost 100 games to play with your family and then some applications on how to better function and communicate with family members. Great stocking stuffer!!

Funny thing....before I start getting comments that my family on the cover is adorable...they truly ARE adorable....BUT THEY AREN'T MY FAMILY!! Cedar Fort did the cover on their own and chose some random family that we have no clue who they are. It might have been nice if they asked us if we had some family that they could photograph to be on the front cover but oh's still a GREAT book!
