The Maynes Family

In August Birch & Sara did a photo shoot for us while we were at Lake C.  Here are some of the beautiful pictures that were taken





*Owen's face*





This is such a great pict of Owen-- I think I especially love it b/c he has some great facial expressions with very expressive eyebrows. 







B & S did a great job- and we loved how they turned out!

turkey day


Ryan had 3 weeks off of school for his Thanksgiving Break! woo hoo! We boarded a plane to Spokane - and headed into the cold!  Owen was pretty good on the plane for the first hour. We had a whole row to ourselves where he sat in the middle seat for maybe 45 minutes watching Batman or some movie on the ipad with us. The last 2 hours or so-- it was a little harder! BUT we made it and were super happy to be back to visit for a bit!

All bundled up to play outside for 4 minutes 

Just the cutest little guy!

We may or may not bribe our child with candy!?  I'm wearing a cute head scarf thing that Debi made for me

We spent a lot of time at the Maynes' house- here is Owen playing computer with Uncle Justin

Baptism of Dave & Phoebe! We were thrilled that we were able to attend their baptism. This is the husband and stepdaughter of Cherise (Marc's younger sister).

3 handsome men!

We didn't get a lot of picts Thanksgiving Day unfortunately. But here's what we got at the table.

The other side of the table..... Tday was spent at Aunt Cherise's house. She actually went to culinary school and is an amazing cook/baker.

As always, the after party is great (after the naps too). We sure had a great time.

Family picture with the Maynes' (in tie dye of course)!

Owen & Mom

Me & Jenessa. I sure love this gal- she's like the younger sister I've always wanted!

Owen had a great time and was so good. We are SO GRATEFUL for him


I just thought this picture was cool for some reason. It reminds me of a still shot off a TV show or something!?  

Also, over TDay break, Ryan got to be a fill in for a basketball team that he'd played with when we lived here! Lucky for him- and they won the championship!
