Eliza's Award Ceremony

We were so proud of Eliza that she was given an award at her school for COOPERATION! Matt and I were both able to be there and our hearts grew with pride. They said some neat things about the kids receiving this award. They talked about how these kids follow the school rules, listen to their teachers, aides and principle and make good choices that reflect in their behavior. Way to go Eliza!

Eastern Idaho

A few weeks back we drove over to Eastern Idaho. The kids had a few days off of school so we decided to drive over and visit Matt's parents and also my sister Heather and her husband James. We had such a great time! We were lucky the weather was beautiful and we took full advantage of it. The kids had so much fun playing in the leaves, swinging on the rope swing and helping grandpa clean up his garden!
We were excited that our friend Lindsey from California surprised Heather with a visit the same weekend. We loved spending time with her too!

I was so excited to spend some time with Heather. Eliza and I spent one night at her cute apartment and had some girl time. It was alot of fun. She made us breakfast the next morning and then we went shopping.
Of course we had to make a stop at Sammy's. My brother Sam opened up another restaurant in Rexburg and Heather and James manage it. Its literally down the street from their apartment. Let me just say, THE FOOD WAS AMAZING! I am not just saying this because it is my brothers place. It was so good where I find myself thinking about it and craving it! 
While in Rexburg we also visited my Father in Law at the college. He teaches at BYUIdaho. The best part about this, he took Porter and Eliza with him earlier that morning and taught his classes with them there. Why you ask? Just because! Just because he is great and wants to be with them. He is a great great man!

Yep, she is officially at the age. The age of destruction! I guess I really need to baby proof. The best part about this picture is we didn't learn our lesson. Cause after we cleaned it up, she went right back for the plant and emptied out the dirt!

Once again we had a wonderful weekend. We cant wait to drive over for christmas and spend more time there. We are sad we will just miss Heather and James since they are going to California, but luckily we only live 4 hours away and can easily make the trip again!
