The Last 10 Days

Wow!!!!! So much has happened since my last posting, I guess I need to fill you in.
Saturday, September 13th was the Hay-ride for our church..... it was a very pleasant evening and we had wonderful food and some great entertainment afterward.

We ended the evening with Skye telling everyone the Uncle Remus story of Brer Rabbit and the Tar Baby. It was hilarious!

On Wednesday, the 17th Cody competed in the "Mr. Madison" contest. The theme for the evening was Mr. Madison on Seseme Street. Cody was Kermit the Frog for the evening.

It was so much fun. Cody was awarded the "Spirit of Mr. Madison" award. He sang "Rainbow Connection" and "Jeremiah was a Bullfrog" for his talent. There are a couple of short videos at the end of this post.

Yea!!! Shiloh and Cami came to visit on Thurday the 18th, and Darryl came home from Morocco that night!!! It is so nice to have the girls and Adam and Lily here and to have Darryl home. On Friday we went to Cody's Cross Country meet in Rigby.
He started the race strong and finished 5th overall.We are so proud of you Codeman!!

Also on Friday, the biggest news was the adoption finalization for Gideon. HE IS OFFICIALLY OURS!!!!!
On Saturday we went to the temple where Gideon was sealed to his mommy and daddy for time and for all eternity!

What a wonderful day!!!

We had a luncheon Saturday afternoon and Lily tried on her new bows. Grandpa spent some special time with Adam and we celebrated Cali's birthday.

On Sunday we went to church with Cali and Travis and watched as Gideon was blessed. It has been such a wonderful week. Shiloh and Adam and Cami and Lily have now left for home. Darryl is here for another week. The Lord has blessed us greatly!
