Holiday Concert

On Friday Kristi and I attended the Holiday Concert at LaCaille benefiting the South Valley Sanctuary. We were able to sell 100 tickets which was our original goal. It was a beautiful evening of excellent food, beautiful entertainment and coming together to elicit support for a worthy cause. Hilary's performance was masterful. She is truly a professional and captivated the entire audience of about 100. She was funny, inspiring and entertaining. We were so grateful for her participation.

"Parent's" Pride

At our children's grade school they recognize the students' performance by awarding them the "Principal's Pride". Tyson was selected this month and Kristi and I were able to attend the celebration. Tyson is a wonderful young man with a real love for fun and apparently likes Ninja Turtle like creatures.

Taylor Turns 15

Taylor turned 15 today and we celebrated by having dinner at Olive Garden with cake at home afterwards. Taylor is a wonderful daughter and makes us very proud. Not only is she an excellent student, but is a great friend to many of her fellow students and associates. She serves as the Mia Maid President in her young women's group. She can now officially get her learners permit for driving!

Golf = Work

I just returned from a golf weekend, trip. The business trip was very successful with the meetings being held over two days on a golf course in St.George. Temperatures were in the 70's and perfect for soaking up some rays. I was amazed at how quite and peaceful it was on the golf course. Business associates in attendance included: Jay Don Blake, Mike Reid, Bruce Summerhays, Lavell Edwards, Fred Roberts, Hayden Fry, Bruce Hurst, Vance Law, and Vernon Law. Our "business" team was (-19) under for the two days and wasn't even close to the top of the leaderboard. Two teams finished at (-35). Our team did manage to tie Mike Reid's team.

Halloween Fun

Candy, candy and more candy. Halloween started early with our ward "Trunk or Treat" activity, progressed to candy scavenging at Control4 and finished with traditional trick or treating in the neighborhood. The kids collected so much candy it will take (or at least should take) months to eat it all!!

We were fortunate to have very nice weather on the 31st. Kids were able to wear their costumes without worrying about a coat - no rain or snow. Camryn was Hanna Montana and Tyson a Sumo.

Fortunately whatever Tyson got on his face wasn't contagious.
