Cable Wan - "Printer"
Me - "printer"
Cable Wan - "out of the box preferably"
Me - "Well be more specific next time."
Cable Wan - " CPU"
Me - "Hey, I know what that is!!"
Cable Wan - "Do you know what it stands for?"
Me - "Uhhmm 'comes pretty undone'?"
Cable Wan - "Uh, no, 'central processing unit'"
Me - "yea, so, I knew what it was, what more do you want?"
Suffice it to say that soon Mike released me from this onerous task, so he could do it in peace. That is how I come to be typing on this nice new keyboard today. Thank goodness for tax returns and husbands that know how to set up computers!!

We didn't get back to the hotel until late and the next morning we got up and took a drive out to Sunset Crater and Wapatki National Monuments. Sunset Crater is an inactive volcano that we can drive past, it wasn't too exciting. Wapatki ruins are old pueblos that were built over 1000 years ago. They were really interesting to look at and the kids got to fill out a jr. ranger book as we went along.
Then we spent the rest of the day and the next day sledding. It was really fun and the first time our kids had done that. They loved it! Kassi was so brave the first day. She has a little yellow board to slide on that Jason got her for Christmas. She called it her boogie board. She would climb up the hills, throw it down then kneel on it and just go. The next day however, her first run down she hit a patch of dirt and landed in the snow face first. After that she wouldn't go alone. The first day the kids had tubes that Jason bought them for Christmas, but after Jason tried them out they broke. So we went out and bought some plastic discs and tabogans. Boy do those go fast! Noah was such a daredevil trying to hit all the jumps he could find. Sammi had fun on them too until she hit one so hard it knocked the breath out of her. Jessi was nice and bundled up in a snow suit that was handed down from one of my brothers. And she was the only one that managed to keep her tube from popping even using it two days in a row. We had a blast but I was glad to get back to warmer weather. I never thought I would say that 40 degrees was warmer weather, but compared to the 20 degrees (that was the high) in Flag, I have changed my views. Course we all ended up with terrible colds when we got back, but it was worth it.
Our Christmas tradition for the past couple of years has been to not buy the kids presents from us, but to decide on a trip or passes to go somewhere. This year we decided to go to Flagstaff after Christmas to play in the snow. So Christmas morning was really quick since it was mostly just their stockings and presents that Santa brought. Sammi got a karaoke machine that we all had lots of fun with (as you can see from the above video! My kids are a bunch of spazes, but at least they take the focus off of me!) Noah got an air hockey table that just barely fits in his room. Jessi got a rock tumbler and rock driller so she can make jewelery. And Kassi got a princess vanity table. Everyone had lots of fun and we spent the rest of the day playing games and checking out all the new gifts. But the gift I am most thankful for is the Savior. I know that he died for our sins that our family may be able to return to him and for that I will forever be in His debt!
