Living Legends!!

Since I am in charge of enrichment in my ward and can do whatever I want, I decided that my girls needed to discover their inner brown. That coupled will a large, leftover budget last year prompted me to buy our Relief Society tickets to Living Legends. It was awesome as only Living Legends can be!!! Thanks to all who came and especially to the dancers!! You are amazing!!

The girls with Eva after she beautifully sang Go My Son.
My hooper, Cheyenne, who hit both circles tonight!! Whoot whoot!!
The magic backstage coordinated by our own Lauren :)
Eva!!! Rockin' the dances and shining on stage; she was awesome :)
Jake was full of energy as always and did a spectacular job!!
It's been fun getting to know more people in legends thanks to Eva and Jake. Loving every minute of it and I can't wait to dance my own performances in Luau and Pow Wow this year!!

Christmas With The Fam In Arizona!

Christmas at home this year!! Fun times with the fam :) I wasn't always great at taking pictures, but here are a few to give you an idea of what crazy shinanigans occurred at the end of the last year.
Dad discovered long boarding.
Phil decided to be a deranged lumberjack (it's actually my ax and I'm so excited to chop some wood with it!).
Jenny- the point of sweetness in our rather sarcastic family.
Reading all the books we got for Christmas!!
Since in AZ Christmas is fairly warmish, Shelly Dad and I went on a hike to Picacho Peak. This is the trail starting point.
We kind of wore Dad out just a little, but he kept trucking along. Mostly cuz we made him :) Love you Dad!!
The northern side of Picacho before we crossed to the other side and ascended the peak.
Dad and I at the Saddle.
Did a little rock climbing on the hike :)
The trail is pretty up and down and steep all the way up. Fun times!
The southern side. I love AZ!
So steep they even installed cables to help the weary hiker :)
Shelly and Dad pondering the view from the top!!
Now the actual view :)
Love the AZ sunsets!
The shadow of Picacho on the valley floor. Mmm pretty sunset.

We finished our hike right as the sun finished setting and the moon was ascending over the peak. Such a gorgeous 4 hour hike! Christmas break was great and I'm so glad I got to spend time at home. Love you fam and Happy New Years!!
