Let's back up to about the middle of November. :)
We have just moved into our lovely new home.
We love it.
We did get mice....which was quite the bummer. Mr. H told me I had to learn how to better handle those kind of stressful situations. :)
C and I left on our flight to Utah....he did so so well!!! Seriously....this is the dream team travel kid. We had a 4 hour layover in Chicago and he stayed happy and calm. He fell asleep in my arms on both flights and it was very relaxing. I loved flying with him.
We got into the airport...
and I got a HUGE surprise! My brother, S, wasn't supposed to get home from his mission till the very end of my trip (which I was super bummed about). I walked down the stairs and there he was!!! There had been a mix up with the mission president and Salt Lake about how long they were allowed to keep S out there, and he had to come home before his extension finished.
I was stunned! His flight had arrived about 5 hours before mine, and I think he was still a little shell shocked! But I was SOOO excited!
The next day I planned my friend K's bridal shower...I was able to drive down and hang out with her in Provo (which is always a blast) and then we had the shower. It was really fun...but mostly the best to hang out with her.
Mr. H arrived the next morning. We were so happy to see him!
We were able to all hang out and mostly just look at S.
We did get a gorgeous hike in on the mountain...we love our Centerville mountains!
The next day my parents took all of us up to the Treehouse Museum in Ogden. It was AMAZING! I highly recommend this place! We had a blast.
|The CUTEST play diner...we could have spent forever in here. C LOVED playing chef!|
|Dad looking so presidential.|
My S grandparents came down to see us, (so good to see them), and then we got together with the G side of the family as well.
We all went to church and took a mini fashion photo shoot....C felt pretty handsome.
We also included a Thanksgiving dinner. So fun.
It was so great to spend so much good time with my family. C loved his uncles and getting to know his Uncle S. I loved all the long chats. It was great to be together.
