Papa & Mimi's Homecoming Talks

 We got up early this morning to get ready for church, and then we went to Mom & Dad's ward. They were giving their mission "homecoming" talks today. They both did a great job and basically cried through their talks. I got a double dose of the "crying gene" from them. The talks were wonderful and the Spirit was so strong! We're so thankful for the family and friends that came to support them.

 After church we came home, had sandwiches and chips for lunch, and then watched football. In the afternoon Mom made up a batch of Maggie's Bean Salsa, and then she was showing the sisters how she puts together a roast, carrots, potatoes, and gravy. This picture makes me so happy b/c they LOVE their food and were salivating just thinking about it. I'm thankful that we are able to know our extended family and have such great memories w/ them.

 This is how we spent most of the day ... eating, talking, watching football, laughing, and having fun together.

 Aunt Jana busted out a fun puzzle she had brought. It was old school candy wrappers. We LOVE doing puzzles b/c you can still watch TV if you want, but it also keeps your mind active and gives you something to do. Plus, we tend to talk to each other more when we're doing a puzzle.

Autumn had taken a little nap in the afternoon, so we stayed until 9:30 pm. But, I needed to get home and get us both to bed so we left w/out the puzzle being done. Jana sent me this text around 11:00 saying they had finished the puzzle! So fun!

It's hard to believe that today is the 15th anniversary of 9/11. I read somewhere on Facebook that this is the first year that incoming 9th graders will be learning about the events of 9/11 as HISTORY, b/c they weren't alive when it happened! CRAZY!!!
