Quote of the Week

“You are the one thing in this world, above all other things, that you must never give up on.” – Lili Reinhart

Fact of the Week

There is a stadium in Brazil in which the midfield line lies on the Equator, making each team defend one hemisphere.

Joke of the Week

As an attorney in a major New Mexico law firm, I have many colleagues who work long hours. However, the reputation of one of my partners’ workaholic ways even extended beyond the office. He not only had to leave work early one day because of a medical problem, but was also told by his doctor to stay home until the end of the week. My colleague grudgingly agreed to comply. In the middle of the week, our receptionist received a call for him. She announced that the partner was out of the office until Friday.
"Good," the caller said. "That’s all I wanted to know." It was my partner’s doctor.

Colemere Family Christmas Party 2009

Well, as most of you know, my beautiful Bevy had baby Jake last Friday. He is 19 1/2 inches and 7lbs 5oz. Congrats Bev and Jesse. Bev always plans the Colemere Family Christmas party and even though she was ready to pop, she still planned it this year. Unfortunately, she wasn't able to be there, so this post is for you, Bev!!!
First we stopped off at Grandma Minnie's. Here is Rachelle testing our my new toy!
Here is Tim and Grandma. Topher and Trey were a little too shy!

Next, we went to Ryan and Natalie's. They graciously offered to have the party at their house this year. Thanks guys!
Rachelle and Kennedy
Da boys (and girl!) Jason, Kennedy, Terry, Topher and Kenyon
Dad and Sue
Kenyon and Madison
Courtney and Mom. Unfortunately, Mom wasn't feeling too well. We think she got food poisoning at the West Jordan Employee Christmas party. Ooops!
Natalie and Xander
Ryan
Dexter
Brad, Adriana, and Adriana's cute son. I am totally brain dead and even though I have asked him his name SEVERAL times. I can't remember it. Sorry!
Same with Stephanie and her handsome hunk. Those of you who know me know that I am TERRIBLE with names, but I never forget a face!!! (sorry again!)
Stephanie and Barb
LaDawn, Kennedy, Mikaela, Lexi, and Hayley (or Hailey... oops!)
Brad and Andrew. Barb and Andrew had just BARELY driven in from Cali so they were EXTREMELY beat! Brad and his little family are also headed back east for Christmas. Don't get frozen!In year's past, we have drawn names for everyone to get a gift, but since times have been tough the last few years, we have narrowed it down to just the kids. So here is the big kids exchange blitz!!!





Oh, by the way, Bev. Since you weren't there, they put me in charge. Something about being the oldest child from the pool of kids that comes from my dad, Uncle John and your mom. What a bunch of hooey! Just kidding. Although they did make me try to remember all of the grandkids starting from youngest to oldest for the gift exchange (me... who can't remember anyone's name!) I did pretty well. The only one I left out was Peyton. Sorry Peyton. I remedied myself mostly right away though to my credit

Here are Ryan and Rachelle. I asked them if they dressed that way on purpose, all red, white, green and Christmasy. They said "No". Looked good though! It was a great party! Glad everyone who made it was there! Next year Bevy will be planning a Christmas party AND a birthday party!!!
