The Ranch

It was fun to watch Chan explore the beauty of the ranch.

Scout may or may not have licked Chan's lips a half of dozen times.

Thanksgiving Day & Weekend

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving week in sunny Arizona. On Thanksgiving Eve we had family pictures, lots of pie, cousin time & fish pond with the Curtis Family.

Thanksgiving morning we drove to Thatcher. We spent Thanksgiving & the weekend with the Stevens family (all but 3 cousins). There was a lot of game playing, cards, crafts, softball, football watching, soda runs, black Friday shopping, a trip to the ranch & family pictures.

One of Kate's favorite cousin, McKay. He just returned from his mission in September (she prayed for him daily for 2 years).

Sage sure loved cousin Dallin. He's our next family missionary, who will be serving in Argentina.

The slide in my parents new house, was a big hit with the kids.

We are very blessed & grateful for our families.

Oh Yes I Did

I've never read a Twilight book or seen any of the movies, until I jumped on board with the ladies in my old ward for a Twilight Extravaganza (still haven't read the books). We mingled for the last three Thursdays. Were we watched a Twilight movie & ate yummy food, preparing to see the Breaking Dawn midnight showing.

First School Picture

I asked Kate if a man or a woman took her school picture.
(a woman photographer would of told her to put her "head" band on top of her head, where it belongs).
Gotta LOVE school pictures.
