Click on the picture to get a normal picture.  I don't know what I'm doing wrong????

Keaton's home!!!

We got Keaton home from Mexico and I'm forever grateful!!  That seems to be such a dangerous place.  We had a big weekend with the whole family and it was priceless to have ALL of our family together which I'm sure will be harder and harder in the future.  We had a professional picture taken but these are all armature hour pictures.  What a blessing family is!
 Who needs a river when you have your own ditch, ha!
 The swimming pool Gabe brought was a life savor as it was SO hot.
 I ask the kids what their favorite part of the weekend was and they said, Gabe and Christy's dogs.  The kids went nuts over them.
The four wheelers are also a big hit on the farm. Everyone took turns with the food and we had some mighty fine eating!

 I've wanted a volley ball net forever and finally got it.  Now if I just had that tee pee I dream of.
 Around the campfire is one of my favorite times.
 Who knew such modern inventions exist.
 The Atomic Days Parade was exciting, candy, candy, candy!
 Alex and Lance had a class reunion.
Darling Brigitte with her darling dog.
 Some of the energetic gals did a late night exercise routine under the full moon.
Here we are trying to get serious for the real picture.

We had a sisters weekend!  All eight of my daughters and daughters in law were able to come.  The amazing husbands took on my 20 grandchildren and the gals all came all free and fancy.  They arrived Friday night and we ate and laughed and watched "The Help" till 1:30 in the morning.  Then next day everyone took turns with food and we had the most scumious food you could imagine.  Jory called a hospital and we did a service project making around 30 stuffed hearts to give to the children patients. The party gals decorated so cute and we had a surprise shower for Trisha. We gabbed, did hair, did nails, sewed up a storm, watched  some more girl flicks, and the biggest excitment was the big outing to Arco's Dollar Store.  That night some stayed up till 3:30.  Three hours of church the next day without children was a picnic for all the gals.  Then of course more food and then the departure.  This had to be the greatest idea(thanks Christy) for a bunch of women during a long winter ever!  It made EVERY single labor pain worth it a thousand times, HA!

I can't believe it!!!!   I've had so much trouble posting this.  Anyway, we had such a grand occasion on the 18th of Dec.  Chase and Rachel were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple.  They actually had the thrill of their lives when Russel M. Nelson (an apostle) was able to marry them.  We had a reception here on the 21st and we were blessed with good weather and lots of fun together with family and friends.
