Christmas Songs

JT decided with Paige to sing this song for the family.  I will post a video soon.  The tune is from George Michael's - Last Christmas I gave you my Heart-

Last Christmas I gave you a fart and the very next day the smell went away.  This year I'll put it in a jar so you can smell it wherever you are.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas 2012

We have had a wonderful year full of love and celebrations.  So many things have occurred this year that remind me that there is a Heavenly Father that loves me and wants me to be happy.  Our family is healthy and well-fed(sometimes too well-fed).  We celebrate Gunnar and his mission, we celebrate my moms surgery making her pain free after many years of pain, we celebrate our new additions....Alisa Bremner and the two babies that are coming this year, we celebrate our new little  Moose and the joy he brings our family, we celebrate the white Christmas we are having and the snow day we had last week, we celebrate the love we have for each other and the gospel of Christ.  

Christ is the reason for Christmas and he is the Light of the World....without him we are lost.  We celebrate him and his glory this time of year and wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and wish you a reason to celebrate everyday of 2013.

1st Semester is Done!!!

I finished this semester with 4 classes and all of them I received A's.    Not all real A's.
I have a 4.0 for the four classes.  Only one really caused me trouble.
But I studied for 9-12 hours a week for that class and boom....
97.5 % for the class.
All the other classes I didn't miss a point...Yes I am that Awesome!!!!!
Now on to semester 2 and the yucky weather we have here this time of year.  Pray we have a nice mild winter so I can get to class the nights I need to go.

Zeke took 2nd in the Geo Bee at Ellis.

GeoBeeWinners.jpgHe said he got tired so he let an easy one go so the whole thing could be over.  OK whatever  you say Zeke.  I have attended these and it is mostly a guess fest and the person with the best guesses wins.  Good job Zeke.

BTW the cheese fudge recipe I posted turned out dryer and more crumbly then the one in Wisconsin...I will try more cheese next time.  Lots of variations on the recipe I posted all over the net.

MTLE Basic Tests.....

I took the MTLE basic  tests yesterday and it was 4 hours of grueling mind numbing enjoyment.  I didn't study anything because the study guides costs over 20 dollars, of course the test cost over 100 so maybe not the best idea on my part.  
At the testing center they take your palm print on both hands, they take your photo and scan your ID.  Every time you leave the test they take your palm print on exit and on entrance again and check your ID.  At the end they take your palm print and check your ID again before you leave and then they hand you your results.  I was hungry when I got done and shaky all over from that and the adrenaline pumping now that I was done.  I was surprised how calm I was during the test.  Prayer really does help with that.
I passed the math and reading portions of the test.  The writing test results don't come out until the middle of January.  I was surprised I passed after how many times I actually just guessed because I was running out of time.  I took all three tests up to the last few seconds.  I guessed in the last math question at the 3 second point.  
Wow this going back to school thing is much harder than I thought.  In my math class I just received my grade for the last 2 tests....100% on both.  Studying for 12 hours a week does pay off, on the weeks I was working my grades were much lower.
