Christmas is coming so soon. I cannot believe it. I am so sorry for not blogging in over a month. I took a few Christmassy pictures and I wanted to publish them.

Not much is new for us. We are trying to enjoy the last few days of the Christmas Season. I love having children to celebrate holidays with. Jack loves singing "Up on the Housetop" and Piper love listening to him.

I have a new calling in our ward. I am the 2nd Counselor in the Relief Society Presidency. I am also the Activities Chairperson (until they call someone else to take my place). So, I was in charge of our ward Christmas Party (which went very well thanks to all the people who helped). I am also now helping plan and set-up the Relief Society Christmas dinner. It is fun to be able to set up and decorate the parties exactly how I want them. Hopefully everyone else is pleased.

For all those who read this blog, I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I would love to say that I will post again during the Holiday Season, but looking at my previous record, I am not due to post again until late January or early February.

Here are my lovely children. Also, I have to thank Shelley Smith for lending me a book titled, "Supernanny: How to Get the Best from Your Children." Zac and I have been struggling (to say the least) with Jack's behavior (Piper's, too, I may as well mention). The tips in this book have really helped and have brought a little more peace into our home. It is amazing what you can do with the tone of your voice. I hope that these tips keep working. I am enjoying not having the feeling of wanting to rip my hair out by the end of breakfast time.

the kids are so cute and growing up so fast. I hear you about strugging with kids and wanting to pull your hair out. I will have to get that book and read it. Thanks. Merry Christmas.
