Who had more fun at the movies today? I’d venture a guess it was these 4 hooligans! Chelsie, Ben, Cope, and Emily were maxed and relaxed at the Payson Stadium Cinemas today. Looks like they need a two week break. See you nutters in January!

The plant is known as Cuetlaxochitl (ket-la-sho-she) has come to symbolize the Christmas season with its bright red and green leaves. Did you know that this American symbol of Christmas is rooted in Aztec history? “It represented purity, and its name signified “Flower that withers, mortal flower that perishes like all that is pure”. The cuetlaxochitl was cultivated as an exotic gift from nature and admired but never touched.” (from Drink Cultura by Jose Antonio Burciaga.)
