Our Thanksgiving '09

Love my little family

We found some cool rocks by our apartment and decided to stop and take some pics.

Aunt Tay with Chan

He really loved Chanley. He would light up and get so excited every time her saw her. It was way cute.

Our nephew Carter. Love his facial expressions!

Our Thanksgiving was so fun this year. Some of Ryan's family were able to come visit us, and it was so great to spend time with all of them! The little ones grow up so dang fast! We are campaigning pretty hard for Ryan's sister and her family to come live in Denver when Jessie is done with dental school. :) We'll keep tryin anyway.

Anyway we had soooo much to be thankful for this year. Here's a quick little list::::
First and foremost the Gospel. Don't know where we'd be without it in our lives.
Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ
Our baby girl Chanley
Our marriage
The temple
Our families
Our friends
The prophet
A car that runs
The missionaries (so proud of you Jake)
Graduating college
Ryan's job
Our apartment
Food/clothes/heat! ect
Our health
The mountains outside our house
Our new ward and callings
Card games
Papa Johns pizza :)

Our week in Idaho

Daddy was pretty excited to see Chan after a whole week!

Chanley after her first airplane ride!

Luke was SO excited for the first snowfall he couldn't wait to go outside and build a snowman, even though there wasn't a whole lot of it yet. He had such a good time with dad.


Chanley loved swinging in Aubrey's swing
I love all her different facial expressions :)

Chanley playin with uncle Ryan

I had a lot of fun taking this pictures of Aub. They turned out so cute!


Luke loved his halloween costume! He was still wearing it a few weeks later. :)

Taking a walk
She's such a cutie!

Grandpa and Chan-he was so good at putting her to sleep

Aunt Aubrey and Chanley with grandpa

So after Chanley's blessing Ryan had to drive back to CO for work, and Chan and I got to go back to ID with my family so we could spend some time with my family. We had a really good time, and it was fun for them to be able to spend some time with Chan. After our week was over Chan and I flew back to Denver and Ry picked us up at the airport. It was a little bit challenging getting through security on my own with a baby, but everything else went awesome! Chan was great during the flight, she just looked outside the window at the clouds and slept most of the way. Everyone kept talking about her and how cute she was. We did have a little blowout when we were decending into Denver, so I had to change her on my lap and ended up wrapping a blanket around her because I was out of clean pants. All in all it went pretty smoothly-we will take the hour and a half flight over eight + hrs in the car any day!
