Easter & Conference

Just a few pics of the kiddos in their new Easter outfits – complete with sunglasses! This year Alan’s parents invited us to Easter dinner at their house. I was thrilled since I had to speak in sacrament meeting that morning!

The next weekend was General Conference and the kids came and had a sleepover at our house. Totally fun to have a houseful after so much quiet. In keeping with tradition (meaning we did it with Kenyon), we gave Emmy a bath in the kitchen sink. She loved it!

Merry Christmas!

I always love all of Christmas, but for sure the best part of Christmas Day is talking to our missionary! Clark looked and sounded great! He was wearing his Dollar Store singing Christmas tie.:) He was kind of missing the snow – it was in the 70’s in Dallas! We sure appreciate the families in his mission that helped him have a great holiday.

Loren, Anne and the kids were in Idaho for Christmas this year. We celebrated with them before they left – Kenyon didn’t mind opening a few presents early! This was Emmy’s first Christmas and I was excited to give her her first baby doll. It’s been a few years since I got to give anyone a doll for Christmas. Of course she loved it…how do we know? Because she immediately put it in her mouth of course!

Merry Christmas Clark!

Christmas with Kenyon

We loved having our 2-year-old grandson Kenyon with us for two weeks. Before he came, I pulled out and washed our small wooden kitchen with all the plastic food and dishes and the McDonalds for him to play with. He loved it all – especially the wooden fruits and vegetables I bought for him to practice cutting up! It was amazing to me how long he would play by doing the same things over and over and over again.

Christmas 2014

Another great Christmas for the Brown Family! Oh, except that I started feeling sick in the middle of the night and spent Christmas morning lying down on the couch not eating anything…go figure. Luckily no one else got sick! Phillip, Loren, Anne and Kenyon all flew in to spend 2 weeks with us. So fun to have a little kid for Christmas – of course he loved opening presents! The best part of the day was visiting with Elliot in Peru. So fun to see and talk to him! Thanks to Madeleine for all the photos!
