Family Photos

While we were in Utah we had some family pictures taken. Here are our favorites of just 'our' family.

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was an interesting day. We found out in the morning that my Grandpa Palmer (Dad's dad) had died. He was 96 years old and a wonderful man. A true Cowboy, riding horses to help bring cows off the mountain up until he is 88 years old. My dad went to Aurora to help with the arrangements and the rest of us tried to continue as normal. He had a good lunch, played games, ate dessert and had a pinata for the kids.

Parties!

While in Utah we had a birthday party for Morgan. We ate waffles with butter syrup, maple syrup, strawberry stuff and whipped cream. Cheyenne also made a triple chocolate cake that was DELICIOUS!
Later E and J got to go to a "Milk and Cookies" party for all the not-in-school kids. They had a great time and couldn't believe they could eat all the sweets they wanted.

Squirt Guns





Eli has been asking for a water gun for ages. Shannon and Kyle got one for he and Joshua when they were playing with them one day and the boys loved them! The would fill them with water then squirt all the leaves on the grass. They even took them into the bath a couple of times to play with. Great little toys!

HALLOWEEN (I'm not late!)




Eli dressed as Lightening McQueen this year and Josh was a Zebra. (We even looked online to find out what a zebra says, it is something like a bark, strangely enough.)
