October 2012 has been a month that we will always remember. It started with a trip to Virginia. It had been somewhat anticipated but still took us offguard. Our Grandma Christensen passed away on October 15, 2012. With the help of 3 friends we got buddy passes for our whole family to fly back and be part of the services. It was a memorable and wonderful trip. A gorgeous time of year and we had time to go downtown and see many friends.
We went with extended family to a pumpkin patch and enjoyed a corn maze and hayride together.
The house looked great and we miss our street. Autumn is the best. We just kept taking photos.
The funeral services were really wonderful. Karen, Linda, Jana and Stephen gave such nice tributes to their Mom and the music was beautiful. It created such good memories for the family.
After a quick celebration of Amber's 16th birthday....Jenn, Jess, Aiden and I had 1 day to unpack and repack and then drive to Utah for Megan and Adam's wedding.
The Mazda didn't fare too well after we hit a large buck. In fact it was declared totalled and we bid farewell in Utah. A scary and challenging trip.
We did get to visit Jill's classroom, which we loved. Jill is a great teacher and very organized.
Megan took out her endowments at the Draper Temple. They had a wedding breakfast at the Lion House. Followed by their sealing in the Bountiful Temple. And then ended the evening at a reception in Provo at Sleepy Ridge. It was all very lovely.
Then we packed up and headed back to Arizona for Halloween. Lots of fun pumpkins.
And finally the cute big news to end off October....Aiden is walking and we can't stop watching him!
