What does "10" look like?

1 year of so-happy-to-have-you...

2 years of sweetness...
3 years of tea party dress-ups...
4 years of dancing...

5 years of dreaming...

6 years of smiles...
7 years of hugs...
8 years of silliness...
9 years of laughing...
10 years of pure joy!
Happy Birthday Aubree!
We love you to the moon and back!

Roasted Starbursts! (aka: desperate FHE treat)

Try this:

Roast a Starburt over a candle
on the end of a skewer...

It is done when it is bubbling but not yet burnt.
Don't burn your mouth!

Happy Family Home Evening Treat!

Merry Christmas!

Wilcox Family Highlights of 2009
-Eve Isabelle Wilcox: born September 17th, 7 pounds 5 ounces, our 6th,
never cries.... sweet justice!, played "Baby Jesus in the church Nativity,
abundantly loved by our family.
-Amelia (2): perpetually wandering off, first pair of "squeaky shoes", cutest laugh and voice ever, tells everyone "SHHHHH! I don't want it!" when she doesn't like what she is being told.
-Seth (5): kindergarten, world record for 'longest loose tooth' (it's been hanging by a thread since September), light sabers, roller-skating, our absent-minded professor, dimples.
-Hayden (7): began piano lessons, basketball, Broncos fan, contagious laugh, organized, hard worker.
-Aubree (9): school basketball team, cello, piano, football fan, mom's best helper, considerate.
-Jacob (12): Aaronic Priesthood, middle school, piano, basketball, fun sense of humor, sweet big brother; football, football, football.
-Jamica (30 something, closer to 30 than 40): laundry, won McConkie family Pike's Peak award, piano lessons, doll house with Amelia, cherishing the beautiful chaos of motherhood; kids, kids, kids.
-Bryan (30 something, definitely closer to 40 than 30): work, hiking, shot first elk- 6 point magnificent bull, piano lessons, catch with kids, still trying to persuade lovely wife to hang elk in our home.

We count YOU- our family and friends- among our greatest blessings.
May the peace of our Savior be with you all year.

"And EVERY knee shall bow"

"...and EVERY knee shall bow, and EVERY tongue shall confess... and give glory to him"
Sometimes I learn the most poignant of lessons
by simply observing
the way my two year old plays.
