Almost every year for New Years Eve, Bryce and I don't do much to celebrate. When we were young, we loved New Years Eve because my parents would go dancing and we would spend the entire day cutting confetti and making snacks for the midnight hour. This year, Steph invited us up to her house to celebrate.

After we left Grandma's house, we headed into Logan to sing Christmas carols and hand out ice cream sandwiches to the people that live at Legacy Home. It was a good experience for Cooper. He enjoyed singing and then he walked around the floors handing out the ice cream. He was a little scared of the old people but he did a good job!
Later that night, we had the Sorenson Christmas Party in Smithfield. We at Sloppy Joe's and many yummy salads and desserts. We visited for a while and then played the Gift Exchange Game. The kids had a good time playing with each other.

Cooper performed in three different Christmas Programs. The first one was held in Ogden at the Christmas Tree Jubilee. This is an event where different organizations decorate Christmas trees and then auction them off to help special needs kids that live in our community. The entire 3rd grade from Freedom showed up the day before Thanksgiving to sing for about 30 minutes. It was a great concert and the songs were beautiful. This has been one of Cooper's favorite things about 3rd grade. He loves singing.

On Saturday evening, we had Jake and Shana over to eat Chinese food and hang out. Originally it was just going to be our two families there, but Jaden and Addey stayed to play with our boys, Jocelynn brought Ty up to play with the kids, Kylee and Matt came over to watch a movie and Scott and Chelsey showed up to get in the hot tub and watch a movie. Never a dull moment at the Merrill home. It was fun to have everyone there.
We had a really enjoyable weekend. Bryce got ot go four wheeling with his dad and Bruce on Saturday. They went up to Treasureton and spent most of the day breaking through snow having a blast. It was nice to just get away from home for a few days and have a little vacation.
