An Olde Fashioned Holiday

First annual holiday by Theatre in the Park. We had our choice of either Breakfast with Santa, a matinee luncheon, or a 5-course dinner music theatre. We decided on the breakfast for the girls. It was held at Mildale Farm which is operated by our JoCo Parks and Rec. Really neat place to have a wedding reception. May have to keep this in mind! Had a great buffet breakfast with fruit, eggs, bacon, pancakes, and danishes. The local Bell Choir performed and the girls got to make ornaments for the tree. What a fun Saturday morning activity!

Ice Skating

Spur of the moment weekend activity to go ice skating at The Ice at Park Place. Had a great time! We were the only ones there for a little while. Girls had a total blast. Mike cut it short because of a blister but we definately plan on going back! Lunch right next door at in*gre*di*ent. It was pretty yummy. And being able to watch the other ice skaters while we ate lunch was fun. I love the outdoor shopping at Park Place in Leawood.

Thanksgiving 2011

Oh so much yummy food! Decided we need a buffet table in our dining room. With a full table and 8 guests we ran out of room. Had good friends over for Thanksgiving dinner. Played the candy bar game afterwards. Then headed to AMC to see Breaking Dawn much to the excitement of our 12 year old.

Centennial Celebration

Living by so many church history sites has its advantages. We were able to attend the Centennial Celebration of the Three Witnesses Monument in Richmond, MO. This is where Oliver Cowdery is buried. We then headed on over to Liberty MO where a new monument has been dedicated. It is a monument to the Eight Witnesses of the Book of Mormon. It is in a very nondescript place on someones farm that was researched by the church. What a great experience! We don't get the Church News anymore but I'm wondering if our picture was in it? Our 15 minutes of fame.
