Camille's Bridal Shower

While I was visiting in Utah for Thanksgiving, I was able to throw Camille a bridal shower for her upcoming wedding.

I was so lucky that Lissa helped with the decorations and Tracy and my mom helped prepared the food.

As tradition, after a gift was opened, the bow of the gift was placed upon Camille.

It was a great party filled with people who love Camille and were anxious to show their support for her in this next big step in her life!

My girls were enthralled with the whole process. They were supposed to go with Brandon, but Lucy and Emmy wanted to stay. 

It was a fun afternoon spoiling a beautiful bride!

Thanksgiving 2014

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal in Utah during the year 2014. 

We ate delicious food, looked nice and had great conversations with people.
Not to mention, after the food was eaten, we played fun games with everyone.

We had a great opportunity to reflect on all our many blessing which we have been given.  It was a lovely Thanksgiving spent with family and loved ones. 

Turkey Bowl 2014

One of the things the boys were looking forward to was playing football with the boys on Thanksgiving morning.

The boys got dressed up warmly so they would be able to play.

Brandon informed me that the boys loved every minute of playing.  They were even allowed to make a play or two.

As you can tell by the pictures, the boys were very happy about their Thanksgiving Turkey Bowl experience.

Painting Nails

Before our big meal on Thanksgiving, Aunt Millie took the time to paint the girls' nails.

 The girls absolutely loved having their nails painted. We are so lucky to have Millie as our aunt.  The girls loved having fancy meals for the big day!

A Great Birthday Party

One of my favorite things to do, when we go to Utah, is to spend time with my cousins! While we were in Utah, we went to a party to celebrate my cousin Lissa's 30th birthday.

My Aunt Julene, Lissa's mom, had planned a great game of bingo, complete with prizes, for everyone to play. Other games were played too!

Of course we had delicious food!

 Lucy with her Anna hair!

 After everyone ate, the gym was cleared and we jumped rope! It was so much fun! I loved jumping rope and my kids loved jumping rope with my cousins.

One of my cousins, Tom, tried to do a push up and jump rope at the same time.Of course my kids then had to try to see if they could do a push up and jump too.

This is a picture of all the people in our family who turned thirty that year.

It was such a enjoyable night with our family!

BYU Football

For Thanksgiving in 2014, we went to visit my parents in Utah.  One of the boys favorite thing of the trip was going to a BYU football game with their dad, papa and Sean. 

The weather was absolutely horrible, but the boys were in heaven!

BYU played amazing, they ate a cougar tail ( a long maple donut), they met the mascot Cosmo and had excellent seats.

Brandon said the boys were having the time of their lives! It was a great way to start off our trip in Utah.
