We woke up to SNOW!!

We woke up to snow!


Dave got up at 1am and woke me up to tell me it was snowing - thanks! When we left for EG at 4:30 we had about 3-4 inches and it was still snowing! We got up to the highway and decided maybe we shouldn't try to drive to Elk Grove. So, back we went and passed the snow plow coming the other direction.


We went home and turned on the internet and listened to the weather reports and decided to leave again at 5:30am. There was snow on the ground all the way to Douglas Blvd. From there on it was a slushy rain and there were spots of snow here and there. What an interesting commute we had today!

Here are some pictures of the beautiful scenery that we woke up too.

Our Thanksgiving extended weekend!


As I mentioned in our last post we were not home for Thanksgiving. We spend every other year with Mom and Dad in Santaquin. We flew out on Wednesday. Janet picked us up and Jonah entertained us! We all had yummy stew for dinner and a good visit.


This is a picture of Mom and I on Thanksgiving. I am opening my gift. "Happy Birthday To Me!"

Because there was only 4 of us for Thanksgiving, we went out to eat instead of cooking. We went to Mimi's Cafe.

Here are some pictures of all of us.

The food was wonderful, of course!

After dinner we played YAHTZEE - mom whooped us! (twice!)
The next morning we met up with Peter, who was in Utah with his girlfriend (Ashley) and their family. We had a GREAT breakfast and we were able to visit with them. Ashley's family was in our ward back in Elk Grove. It was nice to see Peter.

These are some pictures Dave took when he went to physical therapy with Mom. Look at her go. She is amazing and working so hard! We were very impressed!

Friday night we went to my favorite place - Desert Star and saw a fun Christmas musical.
Saturday we helped put up Christmas - lights, tree and all the trimmings! That night we went to a fun Brazilian Restaurant - all you can eat with a great salad bar. They have different meats they bring around on long skewers and slice right onto your plate - delicious! Sunday was of course at church and Mom made my favorite - stuffed pork chops for dinner. Monday we headed back home - vowing to diet! It was a great Holiday!
