he's home!

My younger brother as been living in Chile serving an LDS mission for the past 2 years, and he finally came home on Tuesday! Sadly, we weren't able to make it down to St. George until the weekend. But we had a fun little reunion once we got there!
The boys went shooting all day Saturday, Alycia and I bummed around town with my parents, we got to hangout with extended family, and we definitely ate until we were sick.... all.weekend.long. We also visited the Temple to see the lights and listen to the nativity message. Such a perfect way to remember the meaning of Christmas! 
Now you see the reason we were sick.... YUMMY!
Not a good picture at all but it's all the grandkids (minus 3)
Clearly Eric does NOT want to be taking a picture... but when he realized we'd been picture sniped he was much happier.
 we had a hair braiding train :)
There are no words....

I love my family! I'm so glad I got to spend a happy, fun, sunny weekend with them! Oh, and WELCOME HOME Derrick :)

P.S. I have a question for all my blogger savvy friends.... why in the heck are my posts on separate pages now? I have them programmed to show multiple posts on one page, but starting last week they only have 1 post per page (including on the mobile device format) It's driving me crazy, and I have no clue how to fix it!?!

Looks like you had a fabulous weekend :) As for your posts only showing 1 at a time.... I would check your settings and look at the posts and comments tab. Maybe something got set in there somehow on mistake??
