This morning we had our annual ward Christmas breakfast. This year the primary volunteered to join its quarterly activity with the breakfast so we were all treated to a wonderful nativity pageant complete with Samuel in Zarahemla and shepherds in Bethlehem. Marie was in charge of the music. It was great. She had all 16 of the activity day girls over to our house last Tuesday for a rehearsal. They made quite an angel choir!
The Sunbeams were the stable animals. Will was to be a sheep (with a real fleece from Aunt Jan like the other one in the photo), but when his friend Trevin refused to participate unless he could be a horse, I gave him a brown tunic to be a horse and then that was all willful Will wanted to be so he got a recycled star wars tunic and the two of them were happy horses. The two horses and the black and white cow (Jackson) started to buck during the final singing of Silent Night. As the cow was kicking up his back legs, his front arms failed to hold him up so he collapsed down on his face which gave him a bloody nose. He started to wail. Luckily his mother was quick to scoop him up and take him out.
Joel was the best singer and best out-fitted of all the shepherds. Notice the crook I fashioned out of a shovel handle, a curverd spare dryer part and some brown bag strips.
Sarah has a beautiful voice and a beautiful angel face.
The angel, the shepherd and the manger horse.

On Monday I was able to stand in line at the post office for about 30 minutes then wait at the counter for a slow worker to process a package to England for another 20 minutes. Althought the photographer focused on some guy from Preston (don't they have Post Offices in Idaho) I don't know why, I was there longer.... (the dude on the right asleep at the counter) Happy Holidays!!!

Many happy returns to Tom - it has been a great ride so far and we all hope it continues for a long time still. The whole family has really leaned on him for the past 15 or so years for their ski gear and we all appreciate his efforts. As you will see from the pictures, skiing and family have played a big part in his life so far so why change now? As the youngest sibling he always had someone there to help him along the way and now he is doing the same thing with the youngsters and those of us dottering along toward the sunset. How about a shout out for Tom and a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
