Thank you for spoiling us. I have to give a special thanks to my husband… although he went way over budget, I do LOVE my treasure hunt necklace. Sorry your treasure hunt wasn’t as good. Luke wasn’t really into opening presents… but he did give a really stinky gift for Christmas morning! I’ll spare you the pictures Darin took of that really full diaper!

Grandpa and Grandma Whitaker arrived with Aunt Christina and Aunt Marissa a couple days later. While we didn’t do much during their short visit, they helped out quite a bit! Thanks Christina, for letting me get some sleep in those early hours! Don’t look up my nose in that last one! Family arrived on Saturday the 29th for Luke’s blessing!

.including Uncle Dustin and many Pocatello-ians! Even Darin’s mission president was able to join us. We wrapped up 2007 by spending New Year’s Eve with Pace. Joy and Chase and Grandma and Grandpa Payne having a little fondue party! Yum! sorry no pictures of that… but I’ll end this update with a silly boy picture!
