Elvis Hasn't Left the Building

It's almost 2019 and we have been busy at Casa de Shifley wrapping up 2018.

First, there was Kyle's choir performance. Mrs. Shife and I are pretty proud of the dude. He volunteered to join the choir and had to give up some of his recess time to make that happen and that's a pretty big ask of a 9-year-old because recess is kind of a big deal when you are 9.

Next up we had an awards ceremony for both of the kiddos at their school. Hayden and Kyle both received reading achievement awards. Hayden also won an award for being a Hillcrest Hero. I don't know the exact definition of a Hillcrest Hero but I think it was for being totes adorbs and awesome. 

Then there was an Elvis sighting. The King was back and rocking out at holiday parties. People were all shook up because they thought Elvis was dead but as you can see he's alive and well. It turns out that he faked his death. He had his bodyguards take him up to a cave in Idaho and had him frozen. About a year ago, all of the ice melted because I guess he’s A-HUNK-A-HUNK-A-BURNING-LOVE. Don't be cruel, folks. I know it's a bad joke. 

I'm looking forward to hanging out on the couch with Kyle and Frizzle and having a wonderful holiday season with my family. 

You will probably not hear from me again until 2019 so have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I am looking forward to all of our blogging adventures next year. Take care, thanks for stopping by and I will talk to you later. 

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream. 


  1. Faith was never in choir or band but we went to several award assemblies. We still go to her high school's Christmas concert and plays. Talented kids and cheap entertainment. Merry Christmas to you and your family Matt!
