We feel blessed in knowing we are loved by a Heavenly Father who knows us personally & cares about us individually. That fact has been made manifest over many times in our lives.
We are grateful to have health, strength & determination to carry on.
We feel gratitude for employment and the ability to be self-reliant.
We know so many good, wonderful, caring people who have shown us by their kind acts of love & service that they are our true friends!
We are blessed with beautiful children & grandchildren.
We value our extended family members and all they add to our lives.
We are all well and happy and feeling at Peace with experiences we’ve had this year!
We appreciate our Savior, Jesus Christ & the magnificent gift he has given to us; His Life. He was born as a humble child, He died so we can live, He lives forever and so will his gift.

Have a very beautiful Holiday centered on what Christmas is really all about.

We love you,

We have so much to be Thankful for, and we had an amazing Thanksgiving!! Thanks to Eldon, Candy, the 3 D's and Neil & Maddie coming to celebrate, our Holiday was very fun and filled with lots of deliciousness!!!!

Yes, you're seeing it right, Jesse made the pies!! I am NOT a pie maker and Jess & Arlin both LOVE pies (I think thanks to Gramma Norma & her wonderful pies) so Jess decided to take on the job :) While he was staying with Gordon & Sarah she taught him some important hints on making a good pie crust.

Devlen shared his Wii and everyone, even Arlo took a turn having fun with it.

Cute daddy/daughter!!
Neil supplied us with drink! Egg Nog (he even brought sprite if you wanted it mixed) and Martinellis.

Very CUTE couple!!!
Candy brought some great food. The two things that REALLY stand out are the breakfst caserole she made ~yummy AND mostly the mounds balls!!! Oh man I couldn't get enough!


Oh, and one more thing. What made it really fun is E & C came down wednesday night and stayed the night with us!!! Thank you guys......we loved it!!!

We got some suprise guests!!!

Jennie, well actually Anthon called me and asked, Have you talked to Jennie yet? I said no, what's up (wracking my brain on what could it be about????) He then told me she wanted to come up and had found some very good priced tickets. HOORAY!!!! So Saturday morning Nov. the 14th Arlin & I went up to SeaTac and picked up Jennie & Grandkiddies Baylee & Boston. We had such a fun visit. They got to stay till Tues. Which worked out so well cause I didn't have to work till Wednesday! Here's a few pictures:

At family night we wrote (or drew) all the things we were thankful for. Everytime Grampa said 'thankful' in the lesson we all got to take an m&m :)

Grampa bought this cool train set at a garage sale (Kristin's!!) last summer and was excited for a grandchild or two to come and play!

Bossy where he's meant to be ~OUTSIDE!!!

The Reunion

We had the pleasure of going to Arlin's mission reunion for the 75-78 Spain Madrid Mission. Coincidently it was held on the 2nd of Oct. OUR 30th Anniversary. It was very fun and interesting to see people I had only seen pictures of. The very fun of it all I'll tell at the bottom. Well, it was very fun that Anthon wanted to come with us and bring his family. They fed us good food, some 'real Spaniards' spoke with us and we watched a video of mission pictures. Only one of Arlin's companions were there, but others were there that he knew.

Boston would share his watermelon!!

We got to sit at the same table with Richard G. Scott's daughter, Mary. She was very nice.

Baylee Ellen added to the fun of the evening.

The very fun part is the fact that a family Arlin baptized has gotten in touch with him, and he just spoke with them on the phone for about 45 minutes. They want us to come to Spain (you won't have to force me!!! especially if we could just sneak over and have a look at that Eiffel Tower I have always longed to see!!!)....
These pictures were taken by someone @ the reunion
