Christmas Party

 Kory and I were invited to a Ugly Sweater/White Elephant Gift Party. The week before the big event I went to DI hoping to find something. All I found were some plain sweaters. So I brought them home and went to work. I love the way Kory's turned out. I let my kids help and they thought a reindeer would be fun. I guess I never took a picture of the back but it's a reindeer's butt with a pom pom for a tail. Running out of time I cut out a felt tree and let the girls glue pom poms on it for me. Kory thought he looked old in his sweater and so deliberately messed with his hair. He got so many comments about his hair it was quite funny. 

We are loving our new ward and our new group of friends. There were things that we really enjoyed living in Alton but there were also things that we really missed. Friendships and get togethers were some of those things. 

We are so thankful that our new ward has opened their arms and have really made us feel welcomed. We had a great night and can't wait for the next get together.
