The month of December started out with finding the right Christmas tree for our home.
Then we spent a lot of time decorating the tree and the house.
Don’t you just love our half decorated JuBean-proof tree?
EB was thrilled to get his braces off.
JQ was busy getting his Eagle Project finalized and DONE!
EB was a guest Tenor soloist for the Shelley High School performance of Handel’s Messiah.
It was amazing (for us in the audience) and terrifying (for those on the stage) all at the same time.
But we were so proud of him for wowing everyone and doing something that was very scary.
JQ was able to get his braces off and on a day that was never to be repeated: 12/12/12
Celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary was next in line.
Delivered flowers are always a good thing 🙂
I love you honey!
Thanks for 23 blissful years.
JQ received his mission call and opened it to a crowd of family and friends. He is going to…..
Canada Calgary Mission!
He leaves for the Provo MTC on April 10, 2013
Presto lost both of his top front teeth just in time for Christmas. “All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth!”
Christmas Eve Dinner and Christmas Jammies!
Christmas Day Fun!
Babups received a Jazz basketball from B Trout that was signed by all the Jazz players.
Babups was in NBA heaven!
More Christmas fun with JuBean opening presents and learning how fun it is.
But right after our Christmas Day activities, Presto became extremely sick and had to be hospitalized.
On Christmas Day our whole family headed down to Salt Lake City to Primary Children’s Medical Center to get Presto better.
Presto was diagnosed with HUS which is caused from the E coli bacteria.
We spent the rest of December in Utah, and then the family had to be split up most of January as Presto got better.
Presto finally got to come home on January 26, 2013.
We had an awesome Skype call from Elder T-Bob on December 26 and were able to see and talk with him.
He is doing great and we miss him so much!!!
This picture explains exactly what the end of December felt like…. pure and utter exhaustion.
