Family Photos

I thought I would try to post some more pictures of the family and things we have done recently. Over Thanksgiving we took pictures with our family. Brandon took them with his spiffy camera and his remote control!

milo doesn't know what to think of Christmas....

We make a mess huh?

I was thinking how long it's been since we posted anything on here. Things have been so busy...life! So I'll just take a few minutes to report on Christmas and such and say hello! Hope all of you out there, family and friends, had a lovely and joyful Christmas. If we saw you or heard from you, then we were blessed! If not, we can't wait until we do see you or hear from you again.

Thanksgiving was very very nice....all of us were here! I was thinking how fun it is these days when we get together, because when we are done eating, we just sit around and laugh and talk and make good fun of each other (usually directed at me, but I deserve it). Steph and Brandon came from Utah and we had a wonderful thankful time!

Christmas then came all too soon. I have to wonder what inspires me to want to work in a retail establishment at such a crazy time of year, but I somehow love it. But we managed to still have lots of fun times. Steph and Brandon were at Brandon's house in Rexburg for Christmas, so it was sad not to have them here, but we did the computer web cam thing to open each other's presents which was really cool. We always take forever to open presents because we hate to see all the fun end. Right as we were getting done with Steph and Brandon, Joe handed me this tiny little gift bag. In it were keys! Yes that's right Rebecca got a new Honda CRV....tango red! What a nice husband! Our van has loads and loads of miles on it and won't last too much longer. And somebody in our family just got her license (that would be BRITT) and she is SOOO excited to get to drive the mommy van...how cute huh?

So that and more made it a very fun Christmas. We have now had seven without Brian. I didn't think I could make it through one. We miss him every single day. There are many things we are grateful for though, and one is that Joe is recovering well and we know his stroke could have been something much worse. He is doing okay! Much slower recovery than any of us ever thought, but he has a good routine for building up his strength, doing good deeds, even taking care of the home front while I run off to work. Talk about role reversal! (Although he always was better at vacuuming and dishes than I was...) I'm posting a couple of pictures but I'll add more later....
