Ho Ho Ho...

 Ho Ho Ho...Bridger's new favorite words. He absolutely loves Santa and anything Santa. It's adorable. and Mason is just taking it all in haha.
 Even though the Christmas party was fun, I'm glad it's over haha. I was in charge of all the decor and the program which is no small feat since I've been in the ward for only three months and have two other callings. I ended up loving the experience though because it helped me to get to know so many of the members here and I got a lot of help setting everything up and taking it all down. Thanks Columbia Ward for all your help and support!

 Our programs' theme: "A Gift to All the World"...we had numbers in Italian (above from the Elders), Hawaiian, Norwegian, Old English, Bulgarian, Spanish, and German. It ended up coming together really well.
 Norwegian (We sang this with the Rust family who were all good sports to sing this with us)
 Bulgarian number: Silent Night from the Nordstroms
 Garrett, Tommy, and Christine

 German number: Still Still Still by the ward choir. It was beautiful
 Old English: What Child is This? from Chris Harris

 ...and ending the program was Bishop Card who helped tie it all together with some spiritual thoughts on the Savior, the miracle of His birth, and His sacrifice to all the world. 

  Yep Bridger's finger is in his nose...Merry Christmas everyone haha

Happy (late) Thanksgiving!

 Hey even though it's late we have much to be thankful for...the two cutest little turkeys we could ever ask for!

 ready to eat!

yummy food! everyone brought good stuff and we truly had a feast! here the kids are wanting some candy they used for a little game. 
Thanks for letting us enjoy the day with you! (Trujillo Family, Burk Family, Missionaries, Peterson Family, Knight Family, and the Cannon Family)

Mt. Hood

 Around the end of October we went to Mt. Hood while the Vincents were visiting and I'm so far behind on blogging that I'm just now posting about it. It was a beautiful day so we stopped to take some pictures too...
 I love that Mason has this look that just says, "What is going on?"
