Family photo's...good times? the end, yes!

When you get your family together for pictures is it kinda like pulling teeth?


These sweet little cherubs are our grands. Number 8 is coming in Jan.

It's a real task to get everyone on the same page...........and keep them there!

But I love the outcome anyway! Makes me smile!

These are all my guys!

Our teen has had the opportunity to be apart of his cousins Young Mens in building "Mater". They've entered him in every parade round about, an have won first place each time. They play a cd of his voice, and drive him backwards up and down the parade route. The Young Men ride in the back and sometimes they get really get him bouncing. Friday afternoon they gave him a Christmas makeover and took "Rudolf the red nosed Mater" to strut his stuff in the light parade, where they once again took first place! Summer shot of Mater

Gum ball turkeys our daughter made us for thanksgiving. Aren't they cute?

Their little pilgrim hats are made from tootsie rolls.

Our Thanksgiving was wonderful. So many things to be thankful for. It was great having our children and their families here under the same roof.

Some years ago we started a new family tradition of going to see a movie on Thanksgiving night. This year we saw Harry Potter. Have you seen it? Did you like it? I'm not a purist when it comes to HP, I enjoy the books, as well as the movies. One of my daughters is always so disappointed in the movies because they are not like the books . lol

We went after Christmas trees yesterday. It was cold cold cold. We got some beautiful trees , Pinion from the south slope of Tabby Mountain. Hopefully we will get ours up tomorrow for home evening. The Mr has the flu, and I think it would be nice if he keeps it to himself! lol The sky is flat this afternoon, I think we may get some snow.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Carpe diem.......Seize The Day

My goodness you have handsome men in your family! Glad your Thanksgiving was great. We'll have everyone home for Christmas this year. The first time in 5 years! So looking forward to it. Love your Tow Mater. My little 2 year old grandson loves everything about that movie. They should come to Kaysville for the 4th of July parade so he could see Mater in person! Have a great week. Mimi
