Lights at Temple Square

We took the kids to go see the lights this week.  It was a bit colder than it has been, so we didn't stay too long.  But the kids loved getting to stay warm and bundled in the stroller while Dad pushed them around.  I was there too, but for some reason, I'm not in any photos....

Christmas is Coming

We got to decorate our house for Christmas and the kids have loved taking turns wearing the Santa hat.
We also got the privilege of having Santa come and wave at us from a firetruck.  He came Saturday morning and Joe has been wanting to see him again ALL weekend.  It seems like that is all he can talk about.  Hopefully we'll get to see Santa again before Christmas is over.

Thanksgiving

We started our Thanksgiving week by getting to celebrate Grandparent's Day at Clara's school.  None of Clara's grandparent's were able to make it last year, so Clara was super excited that ALL of her grandparents were there this year.  Clara loved getting to ask them questions about what it was like when they were little.  Thanks for coming!
Thanksgiving Day we spent at my brother, Matt's house.  We had very yummy food followed by getting to watch movies and play some WiiU.  We watched the episode of Mr. Bean where he gets the turkey stuck on his head.  I loved that both little boys were watching it with us, enjoying some time on their Dad's laps.
The days after Thanksgiving, we spent at Jeremy's parent's  house.  They had their house remodeled while they were on their mission, so we got to help move the last of their stuff back into their "new" house.  The littlest kids had fun playing in the warm weather in the back yard.  Joe thought he was so big doing the things the older kids were doing.  Too bad they had no idea he was.  :)
We were also able to watch BYU beat Cal, what a game that was!  Since Jeremy and I decided to get rid of cable/satellite, this was the first game I got to watch BYU play this season.  Thanks for letting us crash at your house John and Sharon!

Elder and Sister Beck Return Home

Jeremy's parents returned home from their 18 month mission this week.  Tuesday night we headed to their stake center for their release.  Almost all the kids and grand kids were able to be there.  We were just missing Michael and his family along with Camille.
 Here they are with their stake president.
John and Sharon spoke in Sacrament meeting on Sunday.  We were able to attend their Sacrament meeting and then attend a family luncheon afterwards.  It's been so great to see and interact with them again.  Clara was excited to tell them everything they missed out on that was important to her, and Joe was surprisingly willing to give them both hugs several times.
 
Welcome home John and Sharon, it's great to have you back!
