Hooray for Bennett. He and Haley have been with us for about a week, and it has been very fun. This blog has a lot of pictures covering the "Iron Chef" pie bake off for Thanksgiving, Haley and Bennett's arrival to Rexburg, Christmas tree hunting, and other random stuff.
Sunday night after we decorated the tree, we had a nice conversation with Griff and Ash on Skype. Griff is on the computer entertaining us with his stories. We love Skyping and seeing the grandkids (and kids).
We had a lot of help decorating the tree this year. We did it after our Sunday dinner and it was a lot of fun. Not everyone is in the picture, but you get the idea. After, we had hot chocolate and cider. We also watched the Christmas devotional on TV together.

At first, he wanted to drive home by himself.

Madison paid us a surprise visit over Thanksgiving. It was great to have her. Congratulations on finishing school. Good job!
