Babysitting and Baby Showers!!!
Todd was ordained to the office of Elder at Grandma Stout's house on Sunday. The Stake High Councilman, Brother Rollins, came to the house in Orem so that Grandma Stout could be there. Grandma Shaffer was there too which was extra nice! Rick, Shauna, and John came and Cousins Jill and Kim came from Boise to see Grandma Stout, and were there! It was a neat day!
Later that night, we drove down to Bryce Canyon and checked in to a hotel called "Ruby's Inn" located close to the entrance of the canyon. The next morning was President's Day so there was no school or work. We had breakfast at a restaurant and Luke went swimming while Todd and Amy went to check out the cute souvenir shops. We entered the canyon and went on a short hike. Got some gorgeous photos of the hooloos. On the way back, we went on a tour of Cove Fort. It was a wonderful trip!
We stayed in the Antelope Lodge
I spent Tuesday and Thursday at Grandma Stout's helping her and Grandma Shaffer. They are both amazing women-both elegant ladies and so kind! Megan's shower was on Friday. She got lots of cute baby boy clothes. Kelsee's shower was the next day. We played some fun get to know you games. Kelsee's favorite toy when she was little was a lamb chops doll. Amy had picked out a cute lamb toy for the baby! It was awesome! We had a great time and I enjoyed visiting with Kelsee's mother. When they left, Grandma Stout got up, and walked out on the porch to say "good-bye" I said , "It's snowing you should probably stay in," and she said , "Oh, no, this is what I like to do!" I think it is the last time she got up and walked before she passed away. I drove past their old house in West Lehi tonight after dropping off the Choate Kids and remembered how Grandpa and Grandma would always come to the back door to wave goodbye- great memories of those two!!!
We watched Mindy and Eric's kids Friday, Saturday and Sunday while Mindy and Eric went on a trip to Idaho. Tim took them to get ice cream while I was at the shower. They loved it! They did well in church today. I drove them home at around 8:00 pm. I think they had a fabulous time.
