I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas shared with family and friends. Now that the kids are not climbing the walls and telling me how many more days until Christmas, there is a new level of calm in the house. I didn't get everything done that I wanted or needed to before the actual Christmas Day. So I am doing it today. I am getting more Christmas cards done and sending my husband to the post office to mail the rest of the packages. So my friends will be getting more presents to open and the line at the post office will be very short. Right? Here is the photo I sent with our Cards this year.

I just made persimmon cookies. I found the recipe in the ward cook book by Anna DeMasters. yummy....Persimmon's are a good source of Vitamin A and C. They are really sweet and juicy---I got quite a few in my bountiful basket last week. I am making fruit leather with some too. These cookbooks make great gifts for neighbors, mothers, mother-in-laws and those you visit teach. I still have cookbooks if you want to buy some. They are $4 each. Email me if you want one.

Check out this blog post by Artist Cortney Lunt. It is about President Uchtdorf's talk from the 2011 General Women's Conference. You can purchase Cortney's artwork here. Or if you live close to me, I have many of her prints at my house that I can sell to you. These make great Christmas gifts that are affordable.

I love this photo. Why? I will tell you. This Picture was taken by my husband while waiting for our last runner to come in for the Red Rock Relay. We were all sitting their exhausted. We each ran an average of 16.5 miles. Not much sleep was gained in the car or on the church lawn in Veyo. By looking at the picture you can't tell that we had endured 186 miles via running or in a Dodge Caravan. We look like we are having the time of our lives. It was a time in my life that I was able to get closer to my sister in law Stephanie(the one next to me) and two sisters in my ward Tammi and Lindsey(left to right). I love these girls. We are all wives and mothers with a focus on the finish line.
This was also a time for me to spend 24 hours with my husband. Who thought that planking the official RRR truck would make a good picture. And I have to say that it did.
