What a wonderful and memorable weekend we had. We took off Friday at 10:30 and drove straight to Lance's in Nampa(dropped Kelsey off at the mall to shop with Mitzi)visited for a short while, drove to Alex's, visited for a short while, drove to Gabe's, visited for a short while then went to Hart's at 5:30. Can you bleieve it all took that long. We saw all the cute grandkids in their Halloween costumes. What a blessing to see our grandkids growing up in such strong loving homes. Thank goodness the kids all have jobs and nice homes to live in. Now a days that's one of life greatest blessings. Jory had a wonderful homemade noodle soup for us and then we went and saw Jory's parent's home. They just moved in and it is out of this world lovely! Hart got a nice Disney, pg movie called "Watcher in the Woods." We thought we were pretty safe with a Disney, but man it was pretty darn freaky!

Saturday Jory fed us a wonderful breakfast and then we headed for Mitzi's. Seth fixed her sink and then Kelsey and I had about an hour at the Mall. Rush rush rush, we never have enough time for anything. She got her T shirts for the Sadie Hawkins dance then we couldn't find anything much after that. A bunch of the family all met at Chuckorama sp? and of course I wasn't hungry after Jory's big fab breakfast but I had no trouble pigging out. It was the beginning of our fast so we ate royally. What FUN! Then we all headed for Eagle Island state park where Keaton ran in the state cross country race. The weater was perfect. Cloudy and cool but not cold at all. Butte's team did about average. We ran from spot to spot cheering Keaton on. He'd had a lot of fun with the team so he decided not to go home with us. We drove home and I prepared my Sunday School lesson and plus two magazines saved me. The best part of going anywhere of course is coming home. Chase spent the day in Pocatello with the Nickersons at the football game so Seth drove out to Howe and brought him home that night. I could never have survived all the driving Seth did. It was pretty exhausting.

Sunday morning we drove to Rigby to Trisha's baby's blessing at 9:00. Travis gave such a nice blessing and Trisha bore a beautiful testimony. We had soup in soup bowl breads. YUM! Then we took Chase to Rexburg and then drove home. He's always fun and it was great to be with him also for a short time. GREAT weekend! Isn't family just the best!!!!
