Saturday morning, January 23,2010: This is the gorgeous view we had from our breakfast table. Jay spent about 4 hours shoveling/Bradley spent about 4 hours skiing. Ummmmm.... is there anything wrong with that scenerio? We are happy that he LOVES to go skiing and it only last for a few months out of the year. We do encourage him to go as often as his grades and time permit. He is always willing to help whenever asked and sometimes on his own when not asked! What a great kid!

Martin Luther King weekend was the three days decided on for our "Girls Weekend". Cyndi and baby Ruthie flew in. Unfortunately, Lisa and Cyndi missed each other by hours. We didn't know Lisa's departure date to the Ukraine until after we booked the ticket. Another unfortunate mishap was that the pictures from the whole weekend were wiped off my camera before they could be downloaded> so sorry no pictures but know that we had a FUN TIME! Here's our itenary:
Thursday: Amber picked up Cyndi and hung out at Temple Square, had lunch with dad,, came home, had dinner and watched Julie/Julia - Bed 12:30 a.m.
Friday: shopping at IKEA, lunch at IKEA (my first trip), Amber went to work, Cyndi and I made bruschetta, smoothies and ben soup for dinner - Bed 12:30 a.m.
Saturday: Dad and Cyndi went on a run, Girls had facials (another first for me), had a great luncheon with family and friends at the house, went to the Hale Theater and saw April Ann (an original play written by Nathan and Ruth Hale) - Bed 1:00 a.m.
Sunday: Church at 9:00, lunch and off to the airport.

On Christmas day we packed the car and headed for Pahrump NV. We enjoyed a weekend with the Bateman family celebrating Christmas. Creating a legacy of love was the theme of the reunion. Dad and Mom had saved their "love letters" from his mission. They courted during his mission. We were able to create a book of love letters and present it to them. It was a tender, fun weekend for Utah and Calfornia cousins to get together. Pictures coming.
For Thanksgiving we decided to break tradition and drive down to Southern Californa. The boys (Tyler, Bradley and Jong-Seung), and Yunseo (also from South Korea) went to Disneyland on Thanksgiving day. We enjoyed the day being in sunny California and visiting friends. Thanks to Jerry and Eileen for letting us stay with them -

A four hour drive from Oxford Mississippi to Prospect TN through the Gorgeous Southern scenery. Amber and I listened to "Hunger Games", talked, laughed and remembered all of wonderful friends and times we had as a family in Alabama. We love the SOUTH!
