The young-uns prepare for the Holy-War...

Anyone catch the final score????

Stayed up a little too late for this one.

Is this not one of the best Harrison Ford movies ever?
If you're a true fan-you'll know the title...

Just So You Know.

Just in case you drive all the way to Krispy Kreme to get one of those luscious looking pink heart-shaped doughnuts- you need to know this: they have no filling. No kreme. No custard. No nothing.

I had this instead.


By the way J.A.B. : I ran an extra 3 miles for that doughnut...GAME ON!!!

I Love This Song:

Have you listened to "Wild Horses" -the Susan Boyle version?

I think my friend Trilby was born to sing that song...

The price of beauty.

I am a's like a part time job...a few hours a week and I love it. Sometimes I get really good deals. I have a basement full of food to prove it. My grocery spending has gone down and my food storage up- way up.
Sometimes the deals are not so good, like yesterday for example. I was doing some sweet Rite Aid shopping where I spend almost nothing and came home with bags of product and rebates to boot.
My loot included a tube of Crest, and attached to the box was a sample of Crest White Strips. "What fun" I thought, "I have never tried this before and who doesn't want whiter teeth?" So, I attached them to my teeth and got busy on the PTA Newsletter. The box recommends 30 mts...I accidentally went an hour.

My teeth hurt.
Some deals are best left alone.

Very Cool...

This morning as I was coming out of the temple, I saw that there was a line to get into the temple. A serious 20 -25 person, out the door line! My heart wanted to bust open with joy!!!

Only in Provo???

Justin Williams

Our new Utah Idol hopeful...not sure what I think of him yet...seems kind of "been around the block" to me but we'll see. Funny that he would cover "Crush (" note the Aaron Edson connection ("Liken the Scriptures"music man).

Provo CIty Half Marathon

The holidays were marathon-like for the Labits this year...

Some Highlights...

A holiday choir performance for Hannah

LEGO Robots graduation for Will

Dog-sitting Bella for 10-days...
just what the doctor ordered for these dog-hungry kids...

Believe it or not this was our family party at the Backus house-we need to work on upping the excitement level for Ang...

We did other fun things like decorate Jake's face with cheese...

Elijah got in some pool time...

And Julie read us our new fave holiday story,
"Red Ranger Came Calling".

We got in some cookie baking and decorating...and eating...

Spent Christmas Eve with Janis...

Hannah and Kaylie hit the slopes- and I do mean HIT the slopes, can you tell how much fun Kaylie is having?

Though I don't have any beautful pictures of me lounging in front of the television in my PJ's, eating Christmas delights...I managed to watch Pride and Prejudice (the 6 hour version), North and South (not the Patrick Swayze one), and Cranford. Please don't total the's scary.

Lastly, I found this mysterious sculpture in our basement on the last day of freedom... I believe it must be pointing us to Easter...hmmm
