*When all through our land,*
*Not a Christian was praying*
*Nor taking a stand.*
*See the PC Police had taken away,*
*The reason for Christmas - no one could say.*
*The children were told by their schools not to sing,*
*About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.*
*It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say*
* December 25th is just a ' Holiday '.*
*Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit*
*Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!*
*CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod*
*Something was changing, something quite odd! *
*Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa*
*In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.*
*As Targets were hanging their trees upside down*
*At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.*
*At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears*
*You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.*
*Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty*
*Are words that were used to intimidate me..*
*Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen*
*On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !*
*At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter*
*To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.*
*And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith*
*Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace*
*The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded*
*The reason for the season, stopped before it started.*
*So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'*
*Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.*
*Choose your words carefully, choose what you say*
*Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS , not Happy Holiday !*
Please, all Christians join together and wish everyone
you meet MERRY CHRISTMAS because
Christ is 'The Reason' for the Christ-mas Season!

Can you say blizzard...with all the snow and no where to go (thank goodness) we decided to hunker down at home and do some fun crafts.....The boys and I made paper snowflakes! Ok so let's play a snowflake version of ISpy. Can you find the BYU snowflake, the U snowflake? What about an angel, a manger, a Christmas tree, a snowman, a gingerbread man, a Christmas ribbon, an ornament, a Christmas light?? We had so much fun and it was a great craft for a snowy day. The boys hung their favorites in their rooms....so cute. Now we (really just me) are out to shovel the walks *UGGGGG* my least favorite part of winter, but maybe we will still have some energy to build a snowman :)

On Monday Liz and I went to Jackson's and Christian's class to be "Mrs. Fun"....Liz saw this darling idea of making a Christmas Tree card out of a hand print and they turned out so cute! I will be making them with my other boys this weekend. It is really easy you just get a piece of card stock and fold it in half, using a sponge put green paint on your child's hand and press it firmly on the paper with the card opening to the right....let it dry then add a gold or silver star to the top and a brown rectangle on the bottom for the trunk. We added a cute ribbon to the side and each child added a their own special message to their chosen family member or friend. They are soooo CUTE!!
Ayden made this darling Christmas Tree in his class using a sugar cone, green frosting and holiday candies....he did a great job and can't wait to show his dad :)
Great Job boys!!

Saturday Landon came and asked me for some "sticky tape" and I had no idea what he wanted it for so I said no you don't need any tape. A couple of minutes later Landon exclaimed "I did it" so I went to see what he did....apparently his mom needs to buy him some new socks *LOL* I have to admit he is very creative.

“Twilight,” a teen-vampire love story, beat out releases from Hollywood studios to become the top film at U.S. and Canadian theaters this weekend with an estimated $70.6 million in ticket sales, the second-highest ever for an independent film.
Summit said yesterday it will begin production on a second film, which will be called “New Moon,” the same title as the Meyer book it’s based upon. The studio is also interested in the rights for the latest installment, “Breaking Dawn,” published Aug. 2, said Rob Friedman, Summit’s co-chairman and chief executive officer, in an interview last week.

Many of you know that our precious little Landon spent his first Christmas in the NICU at PCMC. It was a very hard Christmas for our little family because our sweet baby boy was so sick and couldn't spend Christmas at home with us. For the past 2 Christmas's I have enjoyed playing Santa to all the babies in the NICU. I have taken quilts, blankets and knit hats for all the babies who will spend their first Christmas in the NICU just as Landon did so they know they too are loved and that Santa didn't forget them. So here is where you come in...there are 60 NICU beds at PCMC and for the past 2 years everyone of them has been occupied on Christmas Eve by a precious newborn. That is a lot of hats and blankets to be made so I need your help, if you are a quilter, knitter or would like to help in any other way *or know someone who is* your talents are much needed!! There are only 40 days until Christmas and I am feeling the crunch especially with the recent happenings in my family. If you would like to help me please let me know and I will be forever grateful...Merry Christmas!!

With the week before Halloween being so hectic with all the boys projects and the weekend being stormy we were in definite need of some good old fashioned comfort food. Saturday I made Chicken Noodle Soup and Bread Sticks..it was so yummy and just what we need after all the Halloween Candy. Sunday I made Beef Stroganoff and Apple Crisp from apples grown on my neighbors tree in my backyard....both were so great. It was nice to get back in the kitchen and sit down as a family....now back to mac & cheese and pb&j :)
