December update

making fudge at Gma Whit's
Merry Christmas!
This is Fun!
You can lick the bowl if you want.

Thanksgiving was great.
We took some family pictures at LV Redrock, which we will share when the proofs are available, and had lots of food. Our main focus during the long break was putting the back yard plans together. We got a bobcat from a neighbor and went to work changing the shape of our dirt, then drew diagrams for the sprinklers, then got a trencher from Home Depot and cut all our trenches, then laid pipe, etc. It was not completed, but will be soon. I have about an hour and a half before work every morning that I can go out and put to it. The goal is to have a beautiful lush back yard with garden and swimming pool for my graduation party, sometime in mid-may.
Keresa made some delicious pecan pies for Thanksgiving. Needless to say, I overdid it on eating them.
A few weeks ago we visited Grandma and Grandpa in Logandale to paint Grandpa Bert's house. It was fun. We had a delicious dinner of liver and onions.
A few nights ago we played with Sydney for a half hour before she went to bed, trying to get her to walk. She walks with us holding her hands, but is not trying it on her own yet. As we played with her I couldn't help but think that she is nearly a year old! Where did the time go? That means that we are almost married for two years?! Amazing. It just helps me to see that there is not a moment to lose in setting high goals, then setting a course to complete them because before you know it, it will be too late!
Love, the MK Whitneys
