Thanksgiving 2009

We were able to spend Thanksgiving with Lacey and Tyler this year. Shad, Brittany, Brooklyn and Chandler were able to join us too. We did miss ManDee and Scott not being able to be with us. Lacey cooked her very first Turkey and she did a great job. We all enjoyed it very much. We also got to go to the lighting of Temple Square which we have never been there on that day. We enjoyed ourselves and had a good time with the family. Here are some pictures that you might enjoy...

Beautiful pictures aren't they. We hope you all have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We love this time of season, but most of all to remember what this season is all about. With all the hustle and bustle we all need to remember that Christ is the reason for this season. We also need to remember those who are less fortunate. Know that we love you all and are proud of all our children and grandchildren. You all make life worth living. Love to you and your familes.

Cameron's blessing

November 29, 2009 Lacey and Tyler chose this day to get Cameron blessed. Tyler did a great job on the blessing. Cameron was awake the whole time and just looked around during the blessing. It was like he was listening to daddy. It was a special day and we were glad to be a part of it. We were there, Shad and family, Del and Debbie (upstairs), Brian and fiance' (Tyler's friend) and many friends and family there in spirit. It was definately a special day. And doesn't he look great in his blessing outfit? This is Lacey and Tyler's new family picture too. Lyman took this picture and isn't it a great one.

Still waiting on Shad for his house as he chose to go to the BYU/UTAH game. What's up with that. We all had fun anyway. We love to do this each year as they get better year by year. This has been a family tradition for many years. We have got Brittany, Tyler and Scott to join us and they have all been good sports. We love this tradition and hope to continue every year. Now that they grandkids are up and coming they love to make their own and it was fun watching them. Grandpa would put the frosting on the house for Chandler and then Chandler would pick the candy that he wanted on his house. He loved it. Brooklyn did her house all by her self. Didn't she do a great job!! Of course the best thing about the houses is you get to eat it after....YUM!!!!
