Haydn was in his school play in December. He played Felix the elf.
Jason was asked to help put make-up on the kids. How cute

We spent Christmas at the Cabin in Island Park. In the first two days we were there, we received 30 inches of snow. We couldn't do a whole lot of snowmobiling because of the weather. So we hunkered down and played a lot of games, and ate way too much food.
Autym is past the age of wanting toys for Christmas (Waaah!). She wanted an Aeropostale sweatshirt, DC shoes, and spa stuff.
Haydn asked for a Magic Kit and Legos
Norrah wanted a Baby Doll and Martian Matter.
Mom and Dad wanted a Wii, so we got it and pretended it was for the kids. Ha!
A few days after Christmas, we went to Mountain River Ranch to hear Grandpa Hale sing. He entertains up there during the Christmas season with his folk group, "The Not Brothers." It is fun to go up there, have a sleigh ride in, and then eat the best prime rib ever while listening to Grandpa sing. This year, Autym got asked to go up and sing with them.
One day in January, Grandpa Nielsen came to stay with us so he and Jason could go look at the elk in and around Jackson. We decided we would all go.
We had fun that day looking at elk, and then going swimming in Jackson. After swimming we went to Autym's favorite restaurant, "Merry Piglets" for Mexican food. Grandpa called it, "The Best Day Ever!"
