Lexie and Faith in their dance costumes

Faith had her dance concert today. I know that I was more excited about it than she was. I love to watch her dance, probably because I didnt dance very long as a kid because I was too shy. I didnt think Faith would even make it up on the stage because sometimes I have a hard time getting her to even go to practice. Faith can be very shy and also has a bad habbit of biting her finger nails when shes nervous. Faith surprised me today, she got right up on that stage and did her little dance. She did great and was the cutest reindeer up there.

After Faith and Lexie's dance concert we went to Josh and Meagans house for our annual Longhurst Christmas party. For dinner we had a potatoe bar. There was a cookie exchange and for dessert pie. Every year I look forward to this party because we play the white elephant game. This family is really fun to play with because no one hesitates to steal from each other and family members team together to get what they want (guilty as charged). This year I made out good. I got just what I wanted, a cute cowboy snowman and a bottle of Xango juice. Oh and the kids had a great time too:)

Sunday night we had our "grannie party". My grandpa Merl's mother was named Natalia which means Merry Christmas in italian. Grannie Natalia loved Christmas because of this so every year we have our "grannie party". We all stuff ourselves with great mexican food. This is a family photo. It is tradition every year for Ronnie to ruin the picture, this year he's not the only funny face:)

Last night while we were at Ron and Lydia's, Faith found an ink pen. Faith came out of the toy room where she was playing (too quitely)to show us her "scary face". This picture fails to show how she also colored her stomach from her belly button to her neck. At least it wasnt on the wall.

Over the weekend we went to our "Little Red Cabin". We had quite the trip... The first night we were there Lydia locked the keys in her truck and we waited about three hours for a lock smith to come unlock the truck. The next day I was listening to the radio in my tahoe and ran the battery dead. For those of you who don't know "little red" is in the middle of no where land. It was freezing ( our dash read 3 degrees) but it made perfect weather for sledding. Faith had never been sledding before and its been about 15 years for me and its still as fun as ever.
