One of our favorite traditions is to go caroling and deliver goodies. We chose the worst weather day where everyone was snowed and iced in. (element of suprise--ok, shock) Note the festive santa hats. We really stepped it up this year.
We had another guest for Christmas this year. He is a friend of Chelsey's from BYU Provo. He is from S. California and seems to be quite fond of our daughter. He is a lot of fun and full of energy. He went on a mission to Mexico and really knows his Spanish. He shares the Parham competitive edge and is possibly going into the Navy in April. Chelsey is in love with his blonde hair and green eyes.
It was great fun to have gramps her for Christmas this year. This is 3 years in a row. He played his harmonica and did great on the chimes. I will never forget this 85 year old man bowling and staying up late doing puzzles. I hope I have his aging genes.
Try not to be surprised. I know your thinking, "not Sherry, I know her and she is always so graceful and smooth". Sorry to bust your bubble but here it goes. It was late and Jim had already gotten into bed and I was hurrying to get there and the lights were out and the kind considerate wife I am didn't want to disturb him so I quickly leaned over to take my pants off and WHAM! I slammed my head onto my nightstand. I was screaming and writhing in pain flipping my body around in intense pain. Then about 5 min. later I hear Jim say weakly and disconcertingly, "you ok?" It left a huge bump between my eyes and the black and blue went to both eyes and down my nose. People were sure giving Jim strange looks. The purple bruise were on both eyelids and everyone thought I was experimenting with purple eyeshadow.
This was after I went to Fred Meyers and tripped and fell by the entrance. Bless Lacey for picking me up. How humiliating. Next I was hurring in the back entrance and hit the bench and put a bleeding gap in my shin. A cute bleeding triangle. That's not all. As I was leaving, I fell over a caution cone. The end
I am currently in a relationship - for 27 years! We have 4 girls and 1 boy. We are not your normal kind of family. We love sports, winning, being funny, traveling, Disney World, Oregon, and EATING. We are very protective of our own and are true to our religion.
