Here are some highlights from our first day home, and our last day of Christmas break.
Phillip and I wanted to start the new year off by giving each of our children a picture of the Savior to put in their room. We let the three oldest kids each choose a print to hang on their side of their bedroom. Joy chose to put her print in the middle of a heart, fashioned from school certificates and gymnastics ribbons she's earned.
Daddy needed some shredded cheese for lunch, and was delighted to learn that our food processor has a grating attachment that allows him to grate a whole pound of cheese in seconds. He can't believe that it took him over eleven years of marriage to discover that we have a "power tool" for grating cheese.
Joy spent the afternoon using my old camera to shoot a stop-motion Minecraft video using her Christmas Lego set.
She chronicled Steve's foray into his mine in search of gold ore to make some fancy armor. The rest of us had fun watching the slideshow after she wrapped her photo shoot.
