We headed home about 9am, opened presents with dad, went to Asays for a delicious lunch and more presents and then went to Mike n Rachel's for treats and to watch the slide show DVD dad made for us this year. Probably the most priceless gift we could get.

Something that always seems to sneak up on me at the last minute are Christmas presents for the kids' teachers. I used to look for cute stuff on pinterest to do (since i'm so crafty baha) but I thought a hand written letter from the kids to their teacher is more meaningful than something I threw together in
haste love off of pinterest. :) I had to take a pic of Stetson's note he wrote for Mrs. Paulson. We gave her Martinellies sparkling cider to go with it. This is what he said: "Dear Mrs. Paulson. Thank you for being a nice teacher. We got a gift for you. Write your guest of what its going to be please. Then he leaves a blank to insert her "guest" and then a bunch of lines to insert what she would like for Christmas. I know I'm biased, but this kid cracks me up and I think he's the greatest. :) Kandace wrote notes to her teachers which was a lot more time consuming since I had to tell her how to spell each word but turned out cute. Wish I'd taken a pic of hers, too. I truly am thankful for their school and church teachers. I know they word super hard.

George Winston actually came to BYU-I when I was attending and I went to see him and got my picture taken with him. So all this leads me to last Friday night when Joel, Kambrie, Dad, Brenda, Michael and I all went to a George Winston concert in Billings at the Alberta Bair Theatre. I loved it. I hadn't listened to his music for a long time and it was a totally nostalgic experience to hear it all again. And so calming and enjoyable. Made me think about talents and how Heavenly Father blesses us with them to enrich the lives of others. I feel closer to God when I get to partake of someone's talents like I did that night. So awesome. George Winston you rock.
