Day 172

November 24th, 2012

Today Jenevieve was given a name and blessing at Grandma and Grandpa Graham's home.  We really enjoyed having it at home instead of having it at church like normal.  After the blessing we had a brunch of fruit, eggs and Costco muffins.  Yum!

Day 171

November 23rd, 2012

Today we hung out in downtown Seaside.  It was pouring down rain so we mostly hung out at the mall.

Day 170

November 22nd, 2012

We ate pizza out for our Thanksgiving dinner.  We are at Seaside and there really weren't many choices in restaurants.  We were hoping to eat at Doogers but it was closed.

Then we went back to our hotel and swam then watched Elf as a family.

Day 169

November 21st, 2012

Jude is sleeping on the floor tonight - he happily volunteered to give up his bed for Uncle David who gave up his bed for future Aunt Jennifer who is visiting.

Day 168

November 20th, 2012

I had two very efficient helpers in Jude and Jadon today while we shopped at WINCO.

Day 167

November 19th, 2012

Jude and Jadon enjoy playing in the sewing room.  They are NOT supposed to and for good reason.  I keep the pictures I haven't hung up yet leaning on the wall in there.  Jadon tore this one up - it is my FAVORITE picture - a little girl and a dog.  It is 90 years old and was my grammies.  Paul is checking to see if all the pieces are there.  Looks like they are.  I'll have to figure out to put it back together.

I LOVE to crochet.  I made one of these for Jenevieve, one for Jolie and this one for our little neighbor girl for her birthday.  Jolie went to her party on Saturday and had a great time!

Tonight as a family we went to the Beaverton Stake Center to watch the play Seussical the Musical.  They did an amazing job!  Here is Jolie with two of the Who's.

Day 163

Paul returned home from Las Vegas tonight.  The children were SOOOOOOO happy to see him.  Jenea drew lots of pictures for Paul of she and Paul.  Jenevieve smiled and laughed with her daddy tonight.

Day 162

November 14th, 2012

Tonight Jolie had Activity Girls Recognition Night.  She did a fantastic job giving a talk on her favorite Book of Mormon story - the story of Alma and Amulek.  She memorized it out and knocked everyone's socks off with her version of it!

Day 161

November 13th, 2012

The four of us girls went out this evening to get our hair cut.  Jenevieve of course didn't get her hair cut; it's already short.  Here are the before and after cuts.  Jolie got bangs and I had enough of my hair cut off to give to locks of love. 

Day 160

November 12th, 2012

Jaren and Jolie getting ready for their geography class tomorrow.  They are studying India this month.  Jaren learned to wrap a turban and Jolie a sari.

Day 159

November 10th, 2012

I finally got a picture of my three girls together!  We dropped Paul off at the airport to fly to Las Vegas tonight.  I intended to bring the camera and take a picture, I forgot.  We'll miss him but know he'll have lots of fun and hopefully come back with a job.  This is a networking trip.

Day 158

November 9th, 2012

So, while Jenevieve and I were on our trip I crocheted a lot and I made her this sweater and hat.  I'm pleased with how it turned out.
