Happy Easter

Since we failed so miserably in getting out a Christmas letter this year, we've decided to just do an Easter letter instead.

Christmas letter

We are finally getting around to sending out our annual Christmas letter.  It is posted below as well.  It is so much fun reviewing all our pictures and putting the letter together!

This is Kirtland! 2012

We have been blessed to once again be part of our stake's musical production, This is Kirtland!, now in its ninth year.  What has been great is that the whole family is doing it together (well, Millie isn't exactly in the cast, but she is excited to go to the church and watch movies).  Nate is playing Joseph Smith, Camille is playing Jerusha Smith (wife of Hyrum Smith), Luke is playing Orrice Capp Murdock, Izzy is playing Helen Kimball, Simeon is playing John Rigdon, and Sophie is playing Lovina Smith.

It is such fun to be a part of the show and we are again making some wonderful friends.

The coolest boys of 1834.

december road trip part 2

We had a great night in Lincoln at the Country Inn & Suites, which had a heated pool that was actually warm!  That alone is worthy of five stars in our book.

Day 2 of the trek went well, despite some moments of rebellion spurred by boredom.  We had a good rest stop in Sidney, NE, where we stopped at the Walmart and ran around the store doing a scavenger hunt.  Unfortunately Camille and Nate had finished our book on day 1, so just had to listen to the kids' movies.  Harry Potter 1 and 2 (again).  Afterward, Simeon was especially upset that we were going to watch Tangled, so he freaked out for about half an hour. 

Eventually we made it to Salt Lake, just in time for a great party with the Thompsons and Hammers.  Hooray!
