Temple Square in Salt Lake City!

Chris and I took the kids and went to Temple Square last night to see all of the Christmas Lights. We had such a great time. It was really cold so we didn't stay that long but the temple was so beautiful!
 Salt Lake City Temple lit up with tons of Christmas Lights!
 Such beautiful lights!

Mckenna is officially walking

Today is Sunday November 27th, 2011, and Mckennai s officially walking. She started standing alone about a week ago, and she's been walking across furniture for awhile now. We actually bought her a little walking thing for her birthday and she's used it a few times. Shes taken a few steps tho this past week, and tonight she officially has it down! She is still apart of me, which means she took over my stubburn gene. This makes it tough for me to get it on video to post for everyone to see. I will keep trying tho and hopefully she will let me show off her new skill! :) She's a doll and you should have seen her face the first time she did it and I congratulated her. It was priceless with these big blue eyes and huge smile. Might I mention that her two top teeth are halfway in so...it looked so funny! :) Anyways, hopefully you guys can all see her walking soon! It sure is a cute sight!

Thanksgiving Day 2011

Today for Thanksgiving, our family went to Veralyn Bradshaws church and we celebrated with the Erickson family! It was so great to see Grandma and Grandpa Erickson doing so well...and to see all of our aunts and all of Landons cousins! :) He had a good time playing  with Chase Fulmer, who is Denise's sisters little boy! He and Landon look a lot alike to me! It's neat! Mckenna only took like a 10 minute nap all day so lets hope she sleeps well tonight. Evan and Ann came, and Corey and his lady Sydney, and Braden and Kent and Denise. Brain and Lauren weren't able to come tho because Lauren's due to be a mommy again in about 2 weeks! We can't wait to hear about when they have their little girl!
The kids played basketball in the church and they colored us adults tons of pictures. We at a bunch of turkey and had tons of pies. Chris and I made a cheesecake pie for the occasion! Attached are some pics of our Thanksgiving Day!
