  Holiday sugar cookies always seem like a good idea.  The cookie cutters are so cute and festive.  The kids love cutting them out and decorating them.  But I think of the three dozen we made, we ate about eight.  Nobody actually likes them in our family.

  Today was bad hair day at school.  This is 100% Sydney's creation.  She has participated in all of the dress-up days at school this week with zeal.  She and Shelbi could not be more different in this area.

  Many months ago my sister Jami told me of some friends who were coming to Amarillo to hunt wild pigs.  They had heard that we have quite a problem here.  I knew nothing of this until today, when I saw this in the paper.  I guess I should stay alert.

  I took this picture as I was returning home from dropping Shelbi off at a fireside tonight.  With sunday services, youth activities, scouts (in a couple of months), and various meetings, it sure is nice to live so close to our church.  It's located at the entrance to our neighborhood, only a couple of minutes away.   We're so spoiled, I don't think I could ever go back to living far away from the church building again.

   Shelbi had her church friends over tonight for a casual birthday party.  No planned activities, besides making pizza.  The girls spontaneously broke out into doing the "cups" routine.  Very teenager-y.  Don't know what the cups routine is?  Google it.
