I had fun this past weekend with Alex, Elsie and Ashlyn. We went to Bridal Veil Falls, despite the freezing cold weather. Sometimes you just have to get out no matter what the weather is. The kids enjoyed playing with the ice. They became more and more daring as they crossed the water and as is expected someone fell in so that was the end of our trip. The ice waterfall really was beautiful though.Here are a few pictures from it.

On Sunday, Alex was ordained to the priesthood. It was a really neat experience. My brother Jason gave a beautiful blessing to Alex. I am so proud of the wonderful person Alex has become. It is crazy to see how fast he has grown up. I remember just playing peek-a-boo with him.
Here is our feasting after the event! Mike, Karen and Alex.

So for Christmas I got an AeroGarden, from my father in law, which is basically a sure way to grow herbs indoors without killing them. All you do is put in water when it tells you and a little nutrient tablet. Most of my herbs have done quite well. However, I do not know what do with so much mint and dill. Anyone have some good recipes or ideas? The only thing I know to do with mint is make mint tea and I am not a huge fan. I have really enjoyed my chives though. It is fun to have some green inside when everything else is looks dead out my window. Anyway here are the pictures of my little garden. I can't wait until the weather is good and I can start my porch garden again!
