The little kids LOVE Sarah. This is Peter and Lorelei...our Bishops grandchildren.
Everyone ate some of the food, but holy cow I have a lot of leftovers....anyone hungry?
I love this little pixie. Lorelei is in my primary and I get to be with her every Sunday! She is a great little singer.
Jake Whitmer is also in primary with me, but only for a little longer....sigh....love this boy.
Emily is comforting Aidan (the boy she babysat while she was here) and this is Kelly, his mom. She is Tom Hoffmans daughter. Tom and Kim are our friends and neighbors.
Captain Bo! Timmy loaded his belt with everyone's cell phones and then he made his serious face...after a few attempts that ended in laughter. Bo is leaving next week to start a new job in Iowa...Leah will follow after their house sells. WE WILL MISS THEM DESPERATELY!
These are the Bokinsky boys...Andy and Timmy. Timmy is part Gordon too. WE love having him at our house.
I really was happy all night....Darrin caught me at the end of the party a little tired, but I really am happy.
Holly and David Whitmer...we love these guys...David is our Seminary teacher and Holly teaches in Primary...there are no more important callings than those if you ask me.
And.....off to the airport.
Becoming Sister Gordon
Last family pic.....sigh.
Daddy and his little girl. My father would be so proud of her....IS so proud of her. Way to go Em....we love you.

Darrin, Timmy, and Jesse went to see STOMP. It was amazing.
Sarah wanted to go ice skating. Rockefeller Center was our first choice, but it was like $65 to skate there....so here we are at Bryant Park on the east side skating for $14. Awesome
Poor Dallin had the hiccups for 3 days....Sister Bokinsky is trying one of the MANY remedies we found. Nothing worked for very long. They finally just stopped.
Sarah and Jesse got these cool air swimmers for Christmas. Jesse got the shark and Sarah got Nemo.

We drove to Kentucky for Thanksgiving and had a great time with Lisa and John (and kids), Callie and Randon (and kid) and Rachel and Allen. Oddly enough, the only pics I got were of our Ultimate Frisbee game. Callie has the other pics...so go to her blog for them. It was a lovely 2 days of eating and playing.
|These are the sweet potatoes that I dug out of my garden...they are weird looking, but I am proud.|

I have spent a lot of time with you in the last few
months…unlike some people…I believe none of
that time has been wasted. Because of you, I have…
Tried 10 new recipes, 3 new makeup techniques,
4 new nail polishes, 5 new hair styles, 2 new exercises…Put together 12 new outfits, found my new favorite boots, ordered chandeliers for my kitchen, but the most important thing I have done because of you is…made dozens of craft items found on your boards to sell at a benefit boutique for a family of 5 who just lost their mother to cancer....So…from the bottom of my heart..... THANK YOU!

This is Brian (my nieces husband) and his daughter Riley...they came for a week and we loved it.
Dallin got to come home for a week before ASU started and it just worked out that Emily was going through the Temple that week...We were so grateful. Larry Hunt and Jeannie Thatcher (Emily's good friends from AZ) also came for a few days and to go to the Temple with her. So glad she has good friends. We went to Historic Philadelphia and had a great time. Not sure what Dallin is doing here, but we teased him about it the rest of the day.
This is the only pic I could get of the Temple and my two oldest children...looks a little like our Soprano's picture from 2007. The Washington D.C. Temple is very large. Four of these spires broke and crashed to the ground during our earthquake in August. Crazy!
And...of course...our week couldn't end without a trip to the beach. This was the perfect beach day...warm, but not too, and the dolphins made an appearance. We stayed for hours. So much fun.
Last week, Sarah and Emily and I went to Lancaster County in Penn to visit Amish Country! It was AWESOME! We rode the Strasburg Railroad and toured around the area looking at the beautiful fall leaves, Amish buggies, farms and covered bridges.
