We hosted Thanksgiving Dinner at our home.  Despains, Hansens, and Gerows all joined us.  Thankfully we had plenty of food, and multiple turkeys.  We purchased new appliances that arrived the day before, and our turkey took forever to cook, it was finished around the time people were ready to leave, so we cut it up and sent everyone home with turkey leftovers.  We also couldn't find our pecan pie, it was lost in the new refrigerator.  We had other food to contribute, but it was kind of funny and embarrassing at the same time. Other than that we had good food, and good company, and much to be thankful for.

Sophie is thankful for...

It's fun to see what pictures the kids take with my phone... and it's fun to capture some non-scripted pictures...

Volleyball injury

Just as Sophie went to take a drink of her Gatorade, a ball came flying out of no where.  She bled a lot... Here are some post injury photos.  Ethan had lots of sympathy for her.


Sophie played volleyball with the YMCA.  It was a great first season.  Her old Activity Days leader was her coach, and she had a couple of friends from the ward who were on her team.  She looked forward to practice and her game every week.  She did a great job, and learned a lot!
