Not To Be Neglected. Thanksgiving.


Fall came and went...all too quickly.
I always enjoy the leaves.  They
are as beautiful to me on the ground
as they are on the trees.


 An evening in San Francisco.
Dinner and an opera.
Tosca did not disappoint.


 It had been far too long since our
last visit to the gorgeous
War Memorial Opera House.


 Stunning chandelier.


 Turlock High School Varsity Soccer Team
took the Central California Championships
again this year.  They advanced to the
next level and did an awesome job before
losing in penalty kicks to an undefeated team.
Ty was one of the team Captains.


 Kris and his wonderful mother, Mollie,
during our Thanksgiving weekend in Vegas.


Call and Whitney drove down from Orem.



Breakfast at Grandma's.  A tradition that willl
be remembered and cherished for*ever!




Aunt Mary and Uncle Ric welcomed us with
open arms.  It had been far too long since we
had enjoyed their company.  A great weekend.


They prepared two turkeys.  One was Cajun and was
AMAZING.  The other, a wonderful recipe
from the food network.  GREAT food all around.



A thankful heart is not only the greatest virtue, but
the parent of all other virtues.

What greater blessings to give thanks for at
a family gathering than the family 
and the gathering.

Coulson and Ivy's little Piper had our whole
family "wrapped."  She just had love to spare!

In other news, Ty suffered a broken arm during
a soccer game.  He required surgery.  It's been 
the arm injury from $#*%.  Won't go away.
The ulnar bone is not very protected by muscle 
and was not responding to a cast. It was necessary
to surgically place a pretty good sized
plate in his arm.  


"Before"


"After"

Wow.
He's now in a short arm brace.  No sports
for the rest of the year.  Can't risk a fall.

Chase spent Thanksgiving with the Rowan's.
Anne Marie spent Thanksgiving in Boston.
