Colonial Day!!!

Cole Canyon celebrates Colonial Day every year. It's a big deal for all the 5th graders. The kids all dress up in period clothing and spend the day doing activites like candle dipping, quilting, dancing, (remember the Virginia Wheel??), soap making, etiquette, and many more activities. My sweet friend Amy, made Madison her dress -- she LOVED IT!!

Megan's College Room

Megan was able to find a place to live and moved out from our cousin's (The Daley's) for her second semester of college at EA. She is in a house with four other girls. Three are upstairs and two are down. This is Megan's basement room - She has concrete walls so it makes it challenging to decorate. I think she did a great job! She is close to campus and now walks everywhere ... weather permitting. She is taking her CNA course this semester which keeps her very busy. I think she is taking like 19 units -- crazy!

Dave & Jen Plus 10

My nephew David got married on January 8th, 2010. This is their second marriage and they both have 5 kids, so they are now known as "Dave & Jen + 10!" At the very last minute, Mom, Della, Megan and I dashed up to Utah for the wedding since the weather was clean. We left on Thursday and came home on Sunday after spending Saturday in Las Vegas with the Leishman's. Megan didn't go back to college from her winter break until the 12th so this gave us a fun trip up to see family.

Congratulations David and Jen!
