Alvan's boys..

Last night we had our Ward Christmas Party. Alvan is the Faith in God leader for the boys, he has 20 regular attendees. Last night they sang for the ward a song Alvan and his assistant Dean have been teaching them for about a month now. Unfortunately, not all boys were able to be there, but it was still great. P.S. the boy in the bright blue shirt at the front is one of my nephew's Riley, I'm bragging :) Enjoy

Smiley night sky

Last night we were treated to a special phenomenon ... Venus, Jupiter and the moon aligned to create a smiley face, pretty cool huh?
The smaller eye is venus, the big one Jupiter and the mouth is the moon.
Another shot just in case this one looks better in close up
And a final one with our street lamp in the bottom corner, and if you look hard enough a plane gong across the sky in the top right corner!!
