We had dinner with home made rolls baked in my new oven. I'm still trying to figure it out so the rolls were a little dark but still very good. After dinner we cleaned up the 3 banquet tables and vacuumed the rice that was stuck in the carpet. Come to find out every one of our guests are gifted musicians. We gathered in the living room around the piano and they took their turns playing and singing. We were in heaven. It is always amazing to be in the company of very talented people. How is it that we can have 9 guests and ALL of them are so gifted?
|Partial view from one end of the table. It really is a very long table and room. When we bought the house we could not understand why the living room was so long and skinny. We been able to put it to good use though.|
|View from the other end.|
|April with Emma. Everyone was so good with the kids. I kept trying to tell the children to calm down but realized the fun was being initiated by the young adults. :))|
|Paul, who is holding Hyrum, went to Nauvoo with Tyler the first time. They became good friends there and by the grace of God they became roommates this year.|
|Tyler, Hannah, and Mike, (Ressa's friend ;) joined in a large game everyone had learned at EFY.|
|Grant writes and sings beautifully. Tristin sitting on the other side of the couch was studying violin|
at the UofU when she transfered to BYU.
|Jessica surprised me by playing hymns as we talked. She is awesome. We are lucky enough to have her as Tyler's girlfriend.|
|After Ben played and sang Hyrum was insistent that it was his turn. He jumped up to the piano and started singing. He was too cute. No doubt he came to the right family.|
|And to save the best for last. Our little Preston. He is getting so cute and smiles a lot. He is very precious.|
On another note. Don't put squeaky shoes on little ones when you are going to the library.
