Thanksgiving 2014

Oliver and I got to spend Thanksgiving with my family in Pocatello. My beautiful cousin Katie got married the Friday before in Pleasant Grove, so we were able to go to the wedding and celebrate with her. She was a lovely bride, and we're excited for her and Spencer. Oliver and I had such a fun time with grandma and grandpa and the rest of our family. Thank you for all the fun!
Oliver discovered olives. He was a fan.

Addie, Brit, and Cora come to town

The Saturday after Halloween, Chris and I were so lucky to have a little day trip to the temple. We were so grateful for the Carlisle family in our ward to watch Oliver for the whole day for us, while we went. Oliver had so much fun with the kids and dogs. He didn't even really want to come back home. We love the temple.

The next week, Addie, Brit, and Cora came to visit us. It was so fun to party with them. We explored Newport, walked on the beach, ate fish and chips in Lincoln City, visited Tillamook, and even went to a Trailblazers game in Portland. We love to see these cousins together. And they love each other. Oliver was hilarious giving Cora kisses and raspberries. Cora really is just about the most beautiful and yummy little lady. We love her!
