Happy Thanksgiving!

Ben and Janae were back to visit.

90% of the pictures we take of Ben don't look like this:

they look like this:

Silly Ben.

Halloween 2010 - carving time.
And costume time.
The boys.

The girls.

The others...

Don't leave Uncle Ben...

AND: Jerry and I went to Washington DC. I love it there. It's where our nation's history hits you like a powerful wave. I felt such emotion and great appreciation for other people who loved this country and made the greatest sacrifices - mostly for the benefit of those who would come after them.

I love this country.

We had an early Thanksgiving because we thought most of the family would be here this weekend... things turned a little sparse but it was OK. Now I can sleep in on Thursday and go to Del Taco...



...oh and the first thing she says - 'I got a knife...'

A pretty awesome cheesecake for someone who doesn't even like cheesecake...

My favorite things...

having all my kids home! cream with my boys.

...being back at BYU (with Sara).

...a new house!!!

... this temple.

...shrimp truck shrimp.

BYUH Career Fairs (and the vacation that goes with it)!

Sometimes if you pass the CPA exam - you get a bag of Peanut M & M's!!!!!!!!!
Sometimes if you catch a bug, you bring it to grandma's house: One day Caleb came through the front door with a praying mantis in his bug catcher. He was so excited. 'Gwamma, isn't it great! It's your favorite bug!' He is right.
He let it ride in the train, have a bath in the doll house and crawl all over him.

Sometimes, if you're really good in Primary you get to go to Cold Stone with grandma. Caleb went the week before. This week they both get to go!! Hurray!

Sometimes we color Easter eggs in September....

Sometimes grandma takes two four-year-old's to the movies.

Sometimes we all climb in bed with Sara.

Sometimes, if we still fit in our wedding dress... we try it on!
Sometimes we play swords, sometimes we climb trees.
And sometimes we have a lot of birthday parties:
