This worked out for us again later on when Daisy started barfing and the styrofoam take out container that had been empty was filled again with much less appealing fare.
We have gotten pretty good at this driving back and forth deal. We got there in just a smidge over 12 hours and were happily tucked into warm beds at Oma's before we knew it.
Now that we were in Ogden it was right to business. Brandon played basketball with his brothers in the morning, the Howards had their Christmas party in the afternoon and then it was the Weber State game that night.
It was the mascot game. Rosy loved all the characters until they came close. She wailed so loudly that Grisbee the bear ran away. Being the caring adults that we are, we laughed our heads off at her fear and then I took a picture.

Nobody was happier that the strike was resolved than Brandon but we were all proud of him for working so hard. It was a unique experience to watch the process happened and it proved to me how important collective bargaining can be.

I am still injured so I haven't been running which can only be described as a BUMMER. This lack of physical exercise in my life may or may not have contributed to the moping around the house. We also had a big change at church when the Spanish Branch was split up and we started attending the Eugene 3rd Ward.
I couldn't remember anything else that happened until I found these photos.
Rosy looks cute here but the important thing is that there was actually a ray of sunshine.
Of course we had to make marshmallow fudge. All the girls call it "sudge" which sounds disgusting but still manages to taste good. Noted: Any points I received by making a fruit treat a few nights earlier were immediately void once we pulled out the sudge.

They like to play cards. I don't really get the mechanics of the game but it keeps them relatively quiet for a few minutes.
At one of the 5ks that we did during the summer we were given a coupon for a free pizza at Track Town Pizza. We went on a Saturday night and actually ate in the pizza parlor. It reminded me of when I was a kid and we used to get those Book It prizes from Pizza Hut. We didn't have a lot of money and going out to eat was a big deal. Luckily because of our financial situation in grad school we are able to provide our children with the same kind of magical experience.
Who would use a whole couch when you can scrunch up together in the corner. Movie Night might be my favorite moment of the whole week.

They also ended up with candies that had foreign labels, a bunch of cough drops, some books, a couple of rocks, and a ton of candy.
They have already been brainstorming about costumes for next year.
