An Early Thanksgiving!!


On Sunday, the day before we were leaving to fly back to Nauvoo, ALL the family (50 of us) gathered at our home for an early Thanksgiving. What a LOT to be thankful for! And we are VERY THANKFUL for this wonderful posterity! They are all good people, who are living as they should and are kind and loving to one another. Remember, that was one of Grandma Alice's last request of us...to LOVE ONE ANOTHER! I hope and pray our posterity will always do that! It is such a joy to us to see how well they all get along, and how they are good examples of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As John the apostle said " I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth"


The table of little ones...Ellie, Abby, Cannon, Mesia, Madison and Caleb.  They didn't last very long sitting at the table...but it was cute while it lasted!!

These 3 cousins are such good friends...hope they will always stay that way...Lauren, Alexa, and Eli!
