Snow Day!

On Monday, we decided to head out of town and visit the snow! We drove up to Sequoia National Park to visit the beautiful Redwood trees and see General Grant. Wow! One sure feels small when standing next to such giants! Rachel and Daniel loved playing in the snow, and were old enough to appreciate the trees!

What a fun day spent together! What a beautiful world!

Cub Scouts Pack 33

Last night was my last night as Den Leader for Pack 33. When I got home, I was quite sad for it to be over. I have been the Den Leader since July of 2008, so not very long, but long enough for each of those dear boys to wiggle their way into my heart. We have had quite a few fun, memorable times together and I am so proud of each boy and the progress they make each day of their lives. Probably one of my favorite things we did was in October when we wrote a pack story. The story of the dark lord Konsokowa! It was so fun to see the creative side come out. I was so proud of the way the boys rallied around a family in need at Christmas, with each boy bringing a beautifully decorated present for this family. So here's my last shout out to Jacob C., Jacob E., Trevor, Grant, Ethon, Nicholas, Logan, Brandon, Cordell, Matthew, Garon and Mason! Keep up all the great work you are doing and you will go far in life! Love you all!

The Holidays Are Over

Well, here it is January already! Where did December go? It seems like I was just putting our tree up, and now it is down and put away. Our family had a great Christmas together and spent all our time with each other. We missed family very much, as we always do, but we have each other and our dear friends here. Here are some of our Christmas memories in pictures:
