Catchin Up

We celebrated cousin Kolbe's birthday on the 16th and I left my camera there, so I haven't been updating. We had a great time at the party making gingerbread houses and Paisley had fun sporting one of the flower clips I made her.

The Monday after that I got to take Henry and Paisley together for their 15 month and 2 month well-checks and immunizations. What a joy that was.

That Thursday I was planning on going to my monthly Bunko night when my sister Karen informed me that the band Marcy Playground would be playing a free show in Scottsdale. I got Abbie to come with me and I had a great time. I haven't seen any bands play for way too long (Trent's not really a concert guy). I will have to get pictures from Karen's camera to share.

Then Friday Trent had a scout campout and he kindly took Tucker along.

Saturday my wonderful Ted and Lauren agreed to watch the kids so Trent and I could have a date. We went to Outback and Paisley came too. The lady next to us insisted on holding her before she left and pointed out to us that Paisley looks just like a Cupie Doll.

Then Thanksgiving morning we flew up to SLC to spend the weekend with many of Trent's extended family. It was a wonderful time in a beautiful setting.

Friday Trent and several of his siblings went skiing/snowboarding. Trent even decided to put Tucker in ski class for the day with his cousin Kyler! I wish I could have seen him!
Wes watched Henry and Charlotte for several hours so that Paisley and I could go shopping with the girls- I can't thank him enough!

Saturday I was getting sick. I got to see Emily and her beautiful baby Elora and I was so grateful they drove up to visit! In the meantime Daddy took Tucker and Charlotte on a little hike up to a waterfall with some of the other cousins. Charlotte was out cold by the time they got back and Trent had gotten a good workout. Then we flew out that evening and got to spend all day Sunday relaxing.
