Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our friends and family! We have so much to be thankful for this year. Kyle is home after serving 2 years in the Idaho Boise Mission!

We had it all planned out to be at the airport and be standing there waiting for him....and we almost didn't make it! We had some delays at home and then there was an issue with the airplane. Apparently it flew faster than what was expected so Kyle landed 25 minutes EARLY!! We drove speedy quick to the airport and tried to park in the 'hourly parking' garage - which turned out to be too short for the big van. Oh my goodness what a mess! I had to wait for a car to come in and activate the automatic arm that lets cars through and then HOLD IT UP while Tim backed out. Yeah, that was fun. We went out to the parking lot and Tim dropped us off close to the front of the airport and then went to find a space to park. He got very lucky and was able to park right really close and caught up with us. We were breathless and stressed when we finally got 'into place' at the bottom of the escalator! But...we made it in time and didn't have to wait very long for Kyle to arrive!

A Race and 2 Years Ago

Thanks to some friends at the high school, we were all able to go to the NASCAR race at Charlotte Motor Speedway! It was a great night - the weather was awesome! The seats were awesome and the noise was awesome! We really enjoyed going!

2 years ago today, Kyle started his mission. In less than a week, he'll be home!We are so EXCITED that he'll be here! We're all going to pick him up at the airport and then head to the stake president's home to have him released. Then we'll be getting some Tony's pizza - Kyle has mentioned Tony's MANY times in emails during the past 2 years.
