You had your breakfast in bed before,
but you won't have it there anymore!
This is the army Mister Green.
We like our barracks nice and clean.
You had a housemaid to clean your floor
but she won't help you out anymore!
This is the army Mister Brown.
You and your "baby" went to town.
She had your worried, but this is war
and she won't worry you anymore!

We had a wonderful time visiting with the family here at our home last night. The kids were wound up tighter than a spring and were yelling and hopping all over the place. They were very excited for Santa to come to their homes. One of the cutest moments last night was when four of them were standing at the open door hollering for Santa. They were looking up into the sky and yelling for Santa to come. The longer they yelled, the louder they got. It was quite comical. Even though we really didn't have any planned activities, it was just a wonderful time enjoying each others company. Everyone had gone home by around 10:00 p.m., and then it was lonely and quiet, with just Reese, Lynn, Dieter and me. We finished cleaning up the kitchen and then helped Santa with the stockings. We were in bed by 11:00 p.m.

Sorry Nat, but since I don't have small, cute children to take pictures and post on my blog, you'll have to put up with my indulgences with Dieter dog. I started crying yesterday thinking about what a blessing he's been in Mom and Dad's life. When I visit them, that's all they rave about. Dieter did this and Dieter did that. Mom has taught him how to stand on his hind legs and jump around for a treat. It's the cutest, dang thing! But he does stand on his hind legs and begs while you're eating at the dinner table. I don't like that. He'll turn out to be like Mabel's dogs and then you'll hate him.

We had a marvelous Thanksgiving dinner at Angie and Boyd's home. Angie did all of the cooking and everything was delicious! All I had to do was make the rolls. It was fun making them too ... because I wasn't rushed and I could really put my heart and soul into them. They were fantastic too. The flour makes all the difference. We got freshly ground white flour from the Lehi Roller mills in Lehi. Wonderful flour for wonderful breads and rolls!
Lynn and I have had nasty head colds for the past week. Even though we've felt poorly, we still had to crawl about doing our tasks. I had to sing and he had to speak at a funeral last Saturday. We were both hacking up our lungs. Then I helped in the kitchen for the luncheon after the funeral. And, had to co-teach the RS/Priesthood lesson on Sunday. I was still sick as a dog yesterday so didn't make it into work. I feel 100% better today. Dayquil and Nyquil work wonders!
Mom and Dad were excited to get out of the house for a few hours. They seemed to really enjoy the trip out to Angie's. The weather has been lovely these last few days. I'm afraid that we won't see too many more of these days until Spring.
Grandpa misses his car and says every day that he's thinking about buying an old clunker to drive. We keep telling him that he can't pass the eye test so he shouldn't be out driving. I'm not sure if he's serious or if he's just kidding us. He still insists that he can see fine. It's so hard for him to have that independence taken away from him.
We had another ward member pass away yesterday and his funeral will be Saturday. It's a big family so we're planning on 110 people at the luncheon. I'll help out in the kitchen again. We have a wonderful funeral committee who will take care of everything.
Well, Nat ... I hope you notice that there isn't one picture of Dieter in this round of photos! He's still doing fine and we love him to death! Your Dad is the fun one to watch with him. He kisses and loves him and holds him like a baby.
