Christmas 2006

Wow. I'm finally blogging about Christmas!

So, we were with Rebecca's family in Utah for our first Christmas together. One of the reasons was that Rebecca's brother, Joseph, was getting married (to Lacey) the week before in Manti. It was a terrific wedding!

It was c-o-l-d!


Half of the ward Christmas program consisted of the Olson family and their wood.


For Christmas Eve, we travelled to Ephraim, where Rebecca's dad's family live. We swerved off the road barely not missing a deer and had to push the van back onto the road. I, of course, decided to document the event instead of help!


Every year, there are performances from each family. Rebecca's family didn't have anything prepared, so I decided to show off a newly acquired stupid-human-trick. Click on the picture to watch!

Christmas was excellent.

Beni the Bonsai

For my birthday, I was given a bonsai tree from my parents. I have always wanted a bonsai tree because I have never had time to meditate. I am a little anxious in owning a bonsai tree because I hear they are easy to kill. I spray mine with a water bottle at least twice a day. I also have a bonsai power shake that I'm supposed to feed it once a week. I hope this is enough and not too much. How do I know if I'm giving it too much water or not enough? Mom says it's a banyan, but I'm not so sure. So I decided to put it next to Grandma and have her take care of it. She'll do a much better job than I could. :) Maybe one day, I'll have time to meditate instead.

So, any ideas on how to care for a bonsai tree? And which kind this one is?

Dude. We built a couch.

So, our apartment entry is so small that we can't get a couch in. So, we built one! www.homereserve.com

Nineteen ninety-what?

Tim, David, Hal, Andy, Robby, (Christopher?)

Aunt Julie posted this picture here, and I just about did a backflip! It's a good thing we grow out of those teenage years, isn't it?!
