We had the pleasure of hosting Thanksgiving at our house this year. It was very small. Blayne's Aunt and Grandma came, there was 10 of us total. We had too much food, like always, then followed up the evening with a movie.

Gavin turns 8!

So my one and only boy is now 8! Most of the family was in town to help us celebrate. We were also able to Baptize him the same day. We are very blessed to have such a sweet young man bless our home. He is growing so fast! He attended his first scout meeting this week. He is so excited to be a Boy Scout!
I counted about 54 people that attended his baptism. Gavin is quite the lucky little boy to have such a supportive family.

While waiting at the airport for my flight to Utah I get a call from my sister, she is now a Grandma and I am now a Great Aunt. After rushing home from Utah, Jordan and Kayla brought over sweet baby Aurin to visit his Great Autie. I made my sick Maddy stay up stairs while I visited with this sweet little baby boy. I felt bad, but......... There is no greater blessing then a sweet spirit fresh from our Heavenly Fathers presence.

Utah Road Trip

Well, half of a road trip anyway. Blayne and I flew to Salt Lake City,Utah on a Friday to pick up a car from Tru and Shan. The boys got up early the next morning to go hiking, they came home, we had breakfast. Then we said our goodbyes.
After Leaving the Nielsen's, we went to visit some of the Yates' family before we headed home. Grandma Yates and Aunt Patty and Uncle Rich live in Orem. It's been a long time so it was great to be able to visit, even though it was quick.
Then the long drive home began, we had a lot of fun. We were also able to stop in Boise to have dinner with Jeff and Sandi.
We would have loved to visit longer but our babies were at home with Chelsea and Kristen. I left Maddy with a temperature. Only to get home at 2:30am Sunday morning to take her to the Dr. on Monday and she had a raging ear infection, then her ear drum burst on Tuesday. So it was good we came home when we did.
