We spent Thanksgiving in Utah with lots of Johnston cousins and had a grand old time. I guess I was too busy eating to take any pictures. But we did get one at Cabella's when we met up with Alli and Danny.
|We also went ice skating while they were here. Tom loved being dragged around the ice and begs to go again.|
Catherine and the kids built this guy.
Tom's joyschool class decorating Christmas cupcakes.
|Matt dressed like Uncle Eddie for a work party. He even had the hideous white loafers.|
|Our neighbor tried her best to get us to adopt this dog. Grayce was all for it.|

This fruit monster drags her rocking chair into the kitchen so she can get what she needs. She thinks it should work for getting things off the top of the fridge, too. Luckily she's not quite the climber that Tom is.
Tom is a great kitchen helper.
Matt took a quick trip to Oregon to get a free root canal from good old Craigie and got to take Zach to a Blazers game and drive the camaro. Beau (age 4) asked Matt when he got back "did you drift?!". Matt explained to me what it means to drift. I most certainly hope he never drifts.
We got shelves to display Tom's cars because it hurt my heart to have them thrown in the toy bucket. I think Matt and I may like them more than the kids do. When we see one he doesn't have yet, we can't help but buy it. I think we'll be done once we find Sally, though.
|Last weekend we went to check out Red Rocks and hiked around a bit. It was beautiful! We love living here.|
