We went to Utah for Thanksgiving...the roads were dicey and at times a little scarey but we were safe. We stayed with our good friends, Curt and Marianne Lybbert along with their son, Tristan. Thanksgiving day was great and we had such a good time. Then over the next few days we shopped, ate and even toured Temple Square. As you can see we had a great time...we did miss Becca, Ashton, Ella and Piper!!!

Christmas List

I wanted it to be fair so we let Macy pick who buys for who.

Rachel buys for Piper
Stefany buys for Piper
Becca buys for Macy
Ashton buys for Macy
Andy buys for Ella
Sarah buys for Ella

Wait. That does not look right, I guess we will have to draw names, Macy cannot be trusted.

Rachel buys for Stefany
Andy buys for Becca
Stefany buys for Ashton
Sarah buys for Rachel
Becca buys for Sarah
Ashton buys for Andy

I know that some of these are repeats from birthday, but we used pink paper so we cannot change it.

Merry Christmas

One day we visited the Alamo...I loved it. Learned so much and want to go again.

Here we all are. I even got to meet some Texas Rangers...not one of them looked like Walker...a disappointment I must say but they said things like "Maam" "Little Darlin" and stuff like that. Then we saw the River Walk...that is beautiful...we did not walk it as Becca and I were not up for it.
We ate at fun places...the most special being George Strait's Scenic Loop Cafe...I took about 5 lbs of the free remember the night.

We visited a little town, Bandera and had ice cream and enjoyed the beautiful scenery.

Most of all I spent a lot of time with these people and got to know little Piper and played a lot with Ella. I love my familyand had a wonderful time. Thanks Ashton and Becca for the wonderful time. Thanks Ella and Piper for letting me be a part of your lives and Thanks Den for letting me time we go together.

This past week we had all of the girls in our family get together...what a great time was had by all in attendance!!! We ate lots...lasagne,ice cream,banana bread, chips, peanut butter M&Ms, soups, salads, bread and on and on. We got pedicures, we ate lunch where the RED HAT SOCIETY ladies were eating, we gloriously munched down at Cold Stone, we played with Ella and Macy...we visited with friends, we sewed, Stefany wowed us with her Cricut abilities, we laughed, played games and just had a great time. My daughters are my favorite people in the whole world. They let me be me...they laugh at me but really with me. They seem to understand my weird little hang ups...if they don't understand them they at least do not judge me harshly. They each love Heavenly Father and have very deep spiritual roots. They love Denny as much as he deserves to be loved and then we all laugh at/with him. I am the happiest of all when I am with my family...they are my joy and my treasures. I am very blessed.
