There has been a game of Monopoly being played in this house for DAYS. Rather than go bankrupt we just have a complicated debt register and often the rich guys decide to "donate" money to their poor tenants. We have the Idaho version, so during one game I owned Sun Valley, Hell's Canyon and ISU. So fun!

Taylor wrecked his dirt bike AGAIN. In his words though, this time, he took it like a man.

Our YW group went Boise to do some cleaning, organizing and cooking for the Ronald McDonald house. What a wonderful place! The large house is right next to the hospital and is a place for families to stay who have a child in the hospital. They have a stocked kitchen, playroom, living room with piano and books....... a homey atmosphere convenient to the hospital that only asks for donations. (I think they suggest 10 dollars a night.) Here are the girls doing some disinfecting and cooking:

We went to Arizona for Christmas break, scary snow covered roads for 5 or 6 hours of the trip down, only to arrive in Arizona with warm weather and oranges on the trees. I don't know how old I'll be before that transition ceases to amaze me!! There is only 1 state that separates Idaho and Nevada but what a world of difference. :)
Here is a random assortment of memories from our vacation: our favorite hike to the little waterfall in the White Tanks, (we had 12 kids in the car to get there!)

Leif posed on Santa's lap last night at the school program. He did fine until Santa asked him what he wanted from Christmas. Then he flushed bright red and and got a desperate look on his face. "Mom! What do I want for Twistmas???" I whispered, "You want trains!". "Oh ya, I want twains for Twistmas". Cute!

There is a great new band teacher at our high school this year! She's really inspiring the kids in our community to want to learn how to make music. Of course, our family has always really enjoyed piano and hand bells and singing....but now the kids are enjoying learning trumpet, trombone, flute and percussion too. It's fun to hear random music coming from all corners of the house as they work on their songs or try each others instruments out. Joel and I like to try playing them too.
