My little fisherman...
They have been catching a lot of Blue Gill and some Trout.
Nate had a nice fish sandwich for lunch. I, on the other hand, had a ham sandwich... not a fish eater. I did taste it, and it was good, but not good enough to be my lunch. :)

So far we haven't really had enough room for a real Christmas tree (or maybe we just didn't want to clean up after one...), so we have borrowed these little trees from my mom for the past 3 years. They work great, we just pulled them out of the attic at my parents house, right where we left them last year... one with the lights still strung.
I think every house needs a nativity... we love this one we got from Nate's parents! Angie, this picture is for you, complete with lamp. (my $3 find at a garage sale this summer)
This picture might just look like a plain white house, with a plain white door (both need to be painted), with just a simple Christmas wreath... Well, I'll tell you why it's more than that. For some reason Nate has kind of a weird dislike for wreaths, but looky here --he surprised me when I was at my night class last week! I don't know why, but I have a secret obsession for wreaths... Thanks Love!
Feliz Navidad!! ...seemed appropriate since it's playing on pandora right now. :)

voila... (or however you would spell that)
We thought it would be funny if we put Mose's bed in it and could get him to sleep in there, but he wasn't having it. He would start to get in and then jump back all freaked out. We're not giving up... with a little coaxing I think he could really like it! Please ignore the empty frame on our wall, it's taken us over a year to even get this far with any decorations in our room. Now for a lamp for our nightstand...

We also found a little Honey Locust tree for 75% off, so we planted it in the front yard on Saturday (it's obviously the tiny one in the front of the picture). We have one in the back that we really love.

And we all took a couple turns cliff jumping off the side of the waterfall into the pool (for lack of a better word).After Kipu Falls we took a drive to the south-west side of the island to a beach my parents recommended, Barking Sands. There was probably 8-10 miles of beauiful beach with about 6 other groups on the whole thing, it was beautiful!
Hanakapia beach is claimed to be very dangerous due to strong currents. We counted 82 supposed deaths accounted for on the sign...
Still pretty though
I have no idea why this humongous sign was necessary... maybe it is because of the rain...

We all had a lot of fun! Saturday after Bear Lake, all the adults got to go to dinner at Cafe Sabor and then to the temple. Always fun to do with family.
Grandma Joy is so nice to let Hallie help open her presents...
We're both so blessed to have such great parents and families. We really had a great weekend, and I think we had enough sugar to last us at least through another month!

We put a little patio area in the back of the yard in the shade; it's been nice to have somewhere to eat and relax out there.
Mose LOVES playing in the hose water!
