On Christmas Day Eve, we jumped onto the back of the horse-drawn-trailer and carroled with other ward missionaries and their families. It was a COLD night, but the singing was beautiful! We sang to families along the backroads of Snowflake and made sure to sing to those in the Snowflake Nursing Home.
Keith just got home from the National Finals Rodeo. Our booth at the Cowboy Christmas did well—but most importantly— now we have famous home-bred steers! 62 of our Bar-J-Bar steers were roped during the NFR—you may have seen them on TV. Keith and his family continue to operate a steer-leasing business, two ranches, Rodeo Video, and 1 Rent-a-flik store. I’m the choral director at Blue Ridge HS & JH in Lakeside, AZ. I’m still learning to play the viola and I play with the White Mountain Symphony. Also, I started working on my Master’s degree and drive to ASU/Tempe every Wednesday afternoon. My work, the symphony and school—I really enjoy. Keith and I celebrated our 11th anniversary this year. When we were first married we had 9 kids at home. Now, we have only 2!! We still live in Snowflake, but Keith bought a house in Apache Junction, so we might become snowbirds and tend the cattle from either ranch.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR!
