Pottery date night, sort of...

Sarah and I found a poster in the Wilkinson Center at BYU advertising a cultural date night in the cultural museum making pottery. We expected it to be where we would get to make a pot on a turn table. We were a little off. It was more for single people on dates than married couples. Some of the games were very BYUish and the pottery portion actually consisted of just a ball of clay for us to kneed. But we made the most of the situation and even won their "pottery contest".

Here is our award winning pottery, a wishing well with a cobble stone pathway.

And these are the shirts we won for our award winning pottery.

Christmas Time

Sorry for getting this out so late, but here are some updates of our Christmas break. We had a good time in Oregon, despite the fact that there was snow on the ground for most of it (we thought we could escape the Utah weather, we thought wrong). Christmas eve we watched a movie that Sarah's family always watched growing up, Christmas in Connecticut. Christmas was fun, just doing the usual opening up of presents, after which we headed out to Dad's in Sweet Home for the rest of the day. We ended up going to Michael Allen Harrison's concert in Portland, we just had to go the day after Christmas due to the bad weather. The rest of the break was just spent relaxing and playing games, including scum. Sarah really liked that game. We finally made it back to Utah a couple of days before school started, and here we are, just one more semester to go.

Driving through Keizer Oregon, we got to look at the Christmas lights Christmas Eve.

Christmas morning. We look kind of sleepy.

German pancake breakfast Christmas morning.

The Tillamook Cheese Factory. So many wonderful flavors of cheese.
