The Aquarium

Stella cheCking out the piranhas these guys were in a tank w/ an Anaconda in the South America wing of the aquarium. It was hot, humid and I loved every minute of that wing. Lots of great memories of Ecuador.

The otters play zone to the right. They were super quick and constantly moving. An employee told us that the staff are more afraid of the otters than the piranhas & anaconda. 

This is some type of a Cobra snake. stella walked right up and tugged on the ladies arm so she would bend down so she could pet the snake. 

The shark encounter was really cool.

Christmas Party Part 2

Our ward actually had a Christmas breakfast this year. It was so nice!! I was sceptical because usually we have a Christmas dinner but I really liked getting together early. The kids were fresh nobody had to worry about bedtimes and breakfast food is delish and easy to prepare. It was a win win for our ward.

Sister Love

My sister came to town last night and it's so fun to have her here. She is an angel. Today she took stella to the laundromat and did all my laundry so that I could work on my talk and GD lesson for church this Sunday. It was so wonderful to have a few uninterrupted hours to work.
