Carpenter Christmas Party

Our Carpenter Christmas Party was so FUN this year! Uncle Chuck and Aunt Sharla did a TERRIFIC job of entertaining everyone! We held the party at a park on the 3rd Saturday in December...everyone brought soup and a dessert to share! Aunt Sharla provided the entertainment.

Three legged racing!

Courtney being brave and trying out the tube!

Rolling down the hill in a tube! The tube was GREAT! Everyone that tried it(not me!) had a FUN time...when the "big" boys got in the tube rolled for a long ways! Meghan was our tropper..she would run down the hill(never got in the tube) and make sure everyone was OK..then she would run back up the hill to report! It was Cute!

Sacks races were great! Some didn't quite fit in the sacks...but it didn't stop us from racing!

What a FUN and MEMORABLE party we had...can't wait til next year!

School Assembly Christmas Program

The school has quarterly PERFECT ATTENDANCE assemblies...this one happen to fall right at Christmas Time. Courtney's class learned a song from Alvin and the Chimpmunks, with actions! I love this picture of Courtney...she looks like she is ''getting" into it!

Way to GO Courtney!

Pictures with Santa

CHRISTMAS wouldn't be complete with some pictures with Santa!

The Owens Boys!

Ward Christmas Party

This year for the Ward Christmas Party, we imitated the Polar Express... It was lots of fun for the kids to come in their PJ's and ride the train. We sang Christmas songs and along the way we picked up some special guests..."Joseph and Mary". It was fun to see all the kids excitement as they stepped on the "train".

Here is Cashlyn, Seneca and Slade!

Doesn't Courtney and Lauren look SOOOO happy?

After the train ride, all the children(even the big ones) got to visit Santa and sit on his lap!
Cashlyn was scared and didn't even want her picture taken.

Temple Lights

We went to see the Temple lights the Friday after Thanksgiving!

The Temple lights were lots of FUN...except there were LOTS of people! We got to the Temple early and listened to the little talk that was given about how they turn on the lights. It was really interesting, I have never heard all that before. One of the highlights of the evening was we got to see Elder Harris.(an elder who was in Heber for a time, then got transferred back to the valley) I think the kids enjoyed the lights, but with so many people it is really hard to take it all in! We would have loved to go in the visitor center and see the different Nativities, but it was over crowded. Maybe next year!
