Webster Update

Ok, because I am not a very good blogger - what should have been last ended up first. So we will start with the dog. Butter loves it here in Snowflake! We woke up one morning to about 2 feet of snow. It was great fun! Butter ran back and forth tearing up a perfectly beautiful blanket of snow. It was a never ending supply of balls! We laughed and giggled when the snowball would fall out of sight and Butter would dive in after it. We spent all day playing in it, mostly because we could not go anywhere in our car. We realized real fast that we need a 4X4 to live here.
I did not have a picture of Karl and I, but we love it here. It has been an adjustment, but we are finally feeling more at home. I never thought Karl would enjoy the cold weather, but he is loving his work and work is better when it is cold so I guess that is one reason to like the weather. We will see how long that last when the wind starts blowing in the spring.
I wanted to give a quick update on all the Webster kids, forgive me if this sounds a little bragadocious. I love my kids and I am so proud of how they have adjusted to our new surroundings. Here it goes -

Elder Webster is doing awesome! He has seen some beautiful country and has had some great success in the mission field! He is serving in a city called Cumberland, MD and loves it! He has been in the same area for almost six months now and expecting a transfer at the end of January.
He has been dying to have snow! This was the first time that he had actually watched it fall. They got one good snow in November and then nothing. He should have gotten snow this week, he was very anxious for it to come, I think he will be glad for it to go after he spends a whole winter out there! Oh, he is so handsome and I miss him terribly!Camron is doing pretty good here in Snowflake. #70 had an amazing football season! We loved watching and cheering him on! The football team really made him feel like he had been here his whole life! He got All Division Honorable Mention at the end of the season. He was pretty happy about that! We celebrated Senior night with him and his "mohawk"! (He told me "Mom I know it is stupid, but can I just be stupid for one day and then you can buz it off?" So we did.) I can't believe that he is a Senior already! Time is moving on!
Now that football is over Camron likes to hit the slopes as often as possible! I am regretting that we did not buy that season pass at Sunrise! He gets to work with Karl every once in a while so he can keep the snowboard fund going! He is such a cutie!
Austin is growing by leaps and bounds! He is officially taller than his mother 5'7"and if he answers the phone when you call you may not know it is him because his voice is so low. He has found another love here in Snowflake, not a girl, it is choir. He had room in his schedule and his cousins told him to take choir because that is where everyone is and he loves it! He has even had a solo or two and sounds pretty good if I might say so!
I guess I should say this is his first love. He made the JV Soccer team and he could not get enough of it! They did really well and he can hardly wait for it to start again! They are just getting ready for indoor soccer and he is giddy with excitement! He is a sweetheart!
Megan had an incredible opportunity to actually play the piano with John Schmidt. (She made a shirt with friends for his concert and then had him sign it.) It was so much fun! She is just amazing to me! I can't believe she is mine!
She loves it here in Snowflake! She got to play volleyball this year as a 7th grader and loved it! She really enjoys Jr. High and hanging with all of her new friends. She is so fun to have around!
I guess that will do it for now, I will try to be a better blogger! We love and miss all of our friends in the valley, but have enjoyed spending time together as a family and getting to know new people. We are very thankful for so many blessings! I am not sure why we have been so blessed but we feel very fortunate for all that we have recieved this year!
Till next time!
