Some of this and some of that

These girls love playing with these masks. I'm sure they would love to go to a masked ball some day. 
Sonora is now starting to play "pretend" with the older girls instead of just destroying everything. This makes it more fun for her and for Rita and Hazel as they teach her how to play.
Dusty is a great wrestling coach, but even better he is a great dad. Phillip enjoyed wrestling in a tournament yesterday. He pinned four of his opponents and won by points in his final match. While he is still undecided about if he would like to play basketball in high school or wrestle, he is a strong boy with a deep love for sports.
For Cub Scout pack meeting this month we decided to visit residents of a local retirement home and make gingerbread houses with them. What a sweet (in more than one way) activity this was. The residents were so happy to be around the young kids and the kids were great with the residents. 
One gal, Edna, said she just came to watch because her hands were too arthritic to handle the small candies for decorating the houses. So Rita became her hands and together they built a beautiful house and memories. 
Our annual wrestling team dinner. It’s amazing how many teenagers can fit into our living room. It’s one of our favorite traditions! Four hams, five pans of funeral potatoes, two large pots of green beans, 75 rolls (we definitely need more of those next year), 100 sugar cookies and a white elephant gift exchange made for an eventful, but awesome evening.
Scouting for Food this morning with our Cub Scout Pack and local Fire Department. Serving others as the Savior does, by giving of ourselves and especially our time, brings hope to others and great meaning to our own lives.
