We had a blast spending time with Jordan & Audrey- the only niece/nephew and grandchildren on my side thus far.
Jordan LOVED Sadie and always wanted to pet her, play chase and give her treats.
As tradition dictates, we had family pictures taken too. They turned out really well. We got a great family shot, some of just us, and some of the kids too.
Here is the best shot of everybody...
And a good one of us...
I kind of feel like we should be on a real estate sign or something but we both look good, so we'll take it!
We did some shopping, played games, ate a TON of food and one day, while the boys did "man" stuff, the girls crafted. We all did different things but had fun watching chick-flicks and chatting!
On Thanksgiving, Lori's family has a big potluck at the church and has always invited our family.
My Mom & Dad are a geneology masters! Mom made an appointment at the temple months ago and worked and got 160+ names ready and submitted to the temple to do the baptisms and confirmations. It was really special to be able to be baptized for our relatives. I will always remember this trip to the temple because my brother David (who's middle name is our grandpa's name) got to be baptized for our Grandfather who passed away about two years ago. To do it together as a family was very neat as well.
Lori, Mom & I drove Linds to the airport-
After we got back from the airport, we had to watch the big game- the DUEL!! Utah Utes vs. BYU...GO UTES!!!
(Thanks to Mom & Dad for upgrading your cable package so we could watch the game!)
David & Mel both went to BYU- and as you can see- David was very excited for most of the game as BYU was ahead. Mel slept through the middle (also excited about the game but sleepy- that happens when you are growing niece/nephew #3!)
