When I was younger we often did puzzles over Christmas Break. It used to take up the entire dining room table and some of the larger puzzles would be quite the project.
This year for New Years we
put together a few puzzles. It was a lot of
Each of the
kids had their own progress chart hanging on the wall. We took a
picture of them today. (this was from the 2008 Home School
Ellen enjoying New Year's Day.
My parents recently returned home from an LDS mission to the Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic Mission. Since returning they started monthly Super-Sized-Frazier-Family-Home-Evenings. We all meet for dinner and a FHE lesson. It rotates each month so that each family gets to teach the lesson. Our kids look forward each month to having FHE at Oma and Opa's house (Grandma & Grandpa's house). It is so much fun. It's a family reunion every month!

This month it was Mom &
Dad's turn to do the lesson. Here
they are showing us how to make homemade picture frames with sea
My friend Jose (who taught
me about the tradition)
came to our house today and surprised us with our very own Rosca de
Reyes. We are very excited!
...and here are the lucky winners!
Afterwards they went over to visit with the
cousins in Layton. Julia and Emma are great friends.
This was a spontaneous
moment. I walked in the room and there they were just like this.
Jacob earned his On My Honor
award on the same day.
Going on a field trip to Sub
Zero ice cream where they mix science, food and fun. You chose your
flavors and ingredient and then they mix it up in front of you, add
liquid nitrogen and your ice cream is ready to eat.
Today we went to my sister's

While I was out I looked up
and saw this. It was the sun but it had 4 rainbows going around it.
Each circle was going in a different direction and there were bright
spots when they intersect. You can only see 2 of the rings in this
picture. I didn't have a lens large enough to capture all 4 in the
same shot. The largest ring went around most of the sky.
The craziest part
was when I looked directly above me in the sky and there was an
upside-down rainbow. The other 3 rings were all intersecting, but
this one was in the center of them all, and only a partial circle.
My eyes could hardly take it all in. It was a wonder to see.
Once I finished plowing I
came home and took the kids for a sledding ride.
I took David and Julia ice
fishing at Hyrum Reservoir.
Fishing inside the ice tent
is fun because it stays so warm inside, and when the doors
and windows are shut you can see down into the water and watch the
David caught a fish
When we opened David's fish
we were surprised to find a 2nd fish!
Our insurance agent, Josh
Barnett with American Family Insurance, invited us to laser tag,
roller skating, bowling, jungle gym, and a picture with Santa. How
many of you have an agent like that?
Our home school group goes
to many events at the Ellen Eccles Theatre. The kids
get to have great cultural experiences and see lots of inspiring
talent. Today they went to see The 5 Browns.
Julia came into the office to show me what she
created. She took some licorice and little
broccoli leaves to make trees.
I remember when my older brother and I were this age. In a similar situation my dad was helping us both make our pinewood derbys and my dads wood planer took off one of his fingers. Needless to say I was nervous the entire time making these cars. Glad to report I get to keep all 10 of my fingers.
Here is David.

Megan is across the way
holding Ellen. To the right is Audrey, Aunt Laura and Jacob. Julia is up close,
to the far right. I was going to say that Julia is the one in front
wearing purple, but that doesn't help much does it?
Audrey's sister, Mary came over to visit.
