Logan Emmett's wishing you a Merry Christmas

One fine Sunday afternoon we enjoyed, maybe a little too much, taking pictures for our Christmas card. Unfortunately when they were printed they looked horrible so we found uploading a picture would be appropriate!
Our not so serious and joking around photo.
Or, our serious and not joking around photo, you choose.

Lily's First Day on Skis at Beaver Mountain

Opening day was a bluebird day at Beaver Mountain.  John, Jack, Lily and I enjoyed 3 runs on the new Little Beaver Triple and a couple Magic Carpet runs.  Fun day!

Jack was always nearby to show Lily how it's done.

Tom Opens Beaver Mountain

Well, he didn't really open Beaver Mountain but their website announced its 2011 opening day with this picture of Tom

He's floating and flowing, no time to pose. 
With a permanent grin and a frozen nose.
Pow flyin'
Laid way back in the light white, having fun 
He's Papa John's son showing all how its done.
 Smooth ridin'
Here's the original version of the poem I stole a few lines from. It was published in the first issue of Power magazine in 1972 but I think it was written with Tom in mind. 
i'm Loose le Goose
in the moose ballet,
the Rubberband Man
drivin' ten-ton van

i'm floatin', i''m flowin',
no time to pose,
got a frozen forehead
and a wind-runnin' nose,
bird flyin'

laid way back
an' takin' a bath
in the light white
whippin' by,
am i drownin'?

hear the soundless scream
in a childhood dream,
silent-screen Star
wide-awake sleepin',

i'm loose le Goose
in the moose ballet,
the Rubberband Man
drivin' ten-ton van

tuckin' down home.

Christmas Around the World 2011

Polly & I headed to Provo tonight to see Erin in Christmas Around the World at BYU. Lorin stayed in town with Bruce & went to watch our nieces in a children's orchestra concert. Erin did a great job & there were lots of amazing dancers! Polly only made it about 20 minutes into the show before falling asleep, but she did see one of Erin's dances. We saw Chad, Marie & family on the way out & took a quick picture. It was fun to see them & we all enjoyed the dances & watching Erin.

Opening Stage

I had to give her a quarter to give me a real smile :) Worth it! Plus she dropped it once she fell asleep.

Family Photo - minus Polly's face :) Austin held her for about 20 minutes while we chatted with Erin. That's a lot of dead weight!

Hanging out in my garage

I spent a stormy Saturday hanging out in the garage.  It took all day but I 'successfully' installed a 4'x16' storage rack over my garage door.  For now it is the final resting place for some classic race skis before they are sacrificed into Adirondack chairs or coat racks.

Papa John's Antique Danish Telephone Finds a New Home

After John returned from his mission in Denmark he noticed that the phone at Twin Pine Ranch was from Denmark.  Mom and dad had no idea at the time that the phone was from Denmark. Dad found this old phone at an Antique store in Salt Lake back in the early 50's.  It was one of three similar old phones he once owned.  Tonight the phone has a new home on the wall of John's office in their new home in Heber.  If you look real close on the rotary dial, you can see Papa John's trademark label, 752-7236.

Let's be honest, the Logan Emmett's are too much fun.
Guess who!

William Jameson Emmett Blessing - Oct 16, 2011

Fun weekend with the Portland Emmetts.  Kristin, Annie and I flew to Portland to be part of Will's big weekend.We had a ton of fun hanging out with Will, Bobby and their mom and dad. 

 Kristin has the magic touch
 Jackie and Brian enjoyed the afternoon.  The lady in front of Brian was a bit annoying - especially in the first half, but as it became apparent BYU was going to win, she was less interested in giving us 'high 5's'. She was OK being surrounded by a bunch of Mormons as long as we didn't try to give her a book!

While Annie and Kristin stayed home with Bobby and Will, I went joined Brian, Jackie and most of Jackie's family for the BYU - Oregon State game in Corvallis.

Fall Colors near Cascade Springs

We had a full house for General Conference this year.  Brian brought a group of 20 youth and leaders from Portland to stay with us Friday and Saturday night.  Well before Occupy Wall Street, they occupied our basement.  They arrive well after midnight on Friday, attending all three sessions on Saturday and then drove home Sunday.

Our close friends, Dan and Shauna Rasmussen also stayed with us.  They found a room upstairs that worked.  We decided to listen to the Sunday afternoon session on the radio and take a drive up American Fork Canyon/Alpine Loop/Cascade Springs.  Hard to beat a nice fall day.

Lily was also a little reluctant to try the whipped cream, but she polished off her beater
