I stopped at Starbucks on my way to work and read this.... it's a good one!
The Way I See IT #204
Remember your dreams and fight for them. You must know what you want from life. There is just one thing that makes your dream become impossible: the fear of failure. Never forget your Personal Legend. Never forget your dreams. Your silent heart will guide you. Be silent now. It is the possibility of a dream that makes life interesting. You can choose between being a victim of destiny or an adventurer who is fighting for something important.

Yo-Yo Champion

So this weekend Morgan and I were having a little discussion. I asked if she ever wanted to run a race. She hesitated at answering and so I continued asking if she thought it would be cool to say she ran a mile. She said "I'd rather be a yo-yo champion or a horse riding champion"!

Someone want to explain to me where she comes up with the yo-yo champion???

It makes me laugh and I remember the time Paula and I were driving past Mesa High School. There was a band competition going on and Paula told me she would go to it if I was not with her. I told her we could stop if she really wanted and she said no. I just laughed!

Ok... Ok... so Morgan is Paula's daughter... hence the yo-yo champion!

I just had to share this with you because it was absolutely adorable.

Oh.. and PS- apparently ask Stac about his past as a yo-yo champion!

Christmas Eve

We celebrated Christmas Eve at the Christensen house. Stac and the girls were there, Karen and Mel, and I brought my mom, and Erika. Stac made chili and Karen made oyster stew. This is their traditional Christmas Eve dinner. The girls got to open a few gifts and we also went to a candle light church service.

Christmas Program

The girls had a Christmas program at church and the both did a fabulous job! Faith actually got up and participated this year! Here are a couple of photos after the concert.
