Jodene, Sydney, Colton & AJ where making there way back home to Meeker, CO. We knew the Gardner family from Colorado. They lived in the same apartment we did when we first moved to Colorado. They also went to the same church we did and we became good friends. They moved to Utah when Colton was just a year old and now he is 5. Boy! does time fly. They have just recently moved back to CO where they live in Meeker, CO. They moved back to CO and we moved to Utah. The funny thing is we moved less than 10 minutes from where they lived in Eagle mountain when they were here in Utah. Small world..... Anyway, they stayed with us 11/28/08 - 11/29/08. It was good to see them again.
We really enjoyed for once the Holiday. We were able to be around friends & family which is something Jared & I haven't had in a very long time. When we were in Colorado we didn't have anyone to enjoy the Holiday's with. It was always just Jared & me. Thanksgiving was great with lots of food & dessert. We played a game after we all ate dinner. We really enjoyed our time.

Zachary wanted to take a picture with his Aunt & Uncle and of course baby Ashlyn which is what he calls her.
While Shanna & Paul where here visiting we went to the McVea's for dinner. Jared went to church with them when he lived in Zachary, LA. Then I met them when I was baptized in the Slaughter Branch where Brother McVea was the Bishop at that time. The last time that we have seen their family was when Jared & I went on our missions. We both stayed with them and they took us to the MTC. They are a wonderful family and it was so good to see them. It was nice to find out where their children are living and how many kids they have of their own.
Paul had some doctor appointment's in Utah and while they were here they stayed with us from 11/23/08 - 11/26/08. It was good to see them. The last time we have seen Shanna was over 5 years ago from when we lived in Dallas, Texas.
This was on Sunday, November 16th after church. We still had the kids and Zachary had a messy diaper. Well Jared asked Kailyn to change him and when we looked over this is what we saw. Avalyn was holding Kailyn and her nose as Kailyn changed Zachary. This was to funny!
Jared & I were asked to keep the kids while Jonathan & Brandy were out of town for Business. We had the kids from 11/13/08 to 11/16/08. So we took the kids on Saturday to Jump On It. They had a blast. We really enjoyed keeping the kids while they were gone.
Avalyn had a blast jumping on the big blow ups.
Zachary decided to go down backwards.
Avalyn & Zachary playing so well together.
