Thanksgiving in California

We had a wonderful trip to California to visit Sandi and Kens home in Temecula. It was great because all the grandkids were there also Kens parents and brother and best of all we got to see our newest great grandchild Wyatt (Tyson & Autumn new son)......he is soooooooo cute. Had a great dinner...... played games..... had lots of laughs. There is nothing better than being with family!

Dream trip to New York ....Statue of Liberty

I had a wonderful dream come true with my trip to Boston and New York City where I was able to go to Ellis Island where my parents come to this country in 1929. What a joy it was and very emotional. I am so grateful to them for their sacrifice and that I was able to grow up in this wonderful country...AMERICA!

I didn't know until just now that i can blog on this blog also. i thought only grandma and grandpa could. SURPRISE! well we had a fun halloween. center street here in provo does trick or treating on halloween during the day so kids dont' have to do it night and also so that businesses can advertise so people know what's around. we took riley up center street but we didn't make it back down because once we saw the pet store that is all riley wanted to do. who cares about candy when you can go look at turtles and fish!!! it was good fun though. now we are busy getting holiday work done so we can just enjoy the holidays. that's all for now!
