The night before my mom died, Garrett came home from his mission in Tempe, AZ to say goodbye to her. I think she was waiting for him and she was always very insistent that Garrett would have the chance to mourn his mom with this brothers and sisters and I think she was right. After the funeral my dad and Tanner drove him back to Arizona. The night before he left we went to eat at Red Lobster to say goodbye to Garrett for 14 more months. I am so proud of Garrett and the courage he has shown to serve the Lord during a hard time when it would have been easy to quit, love that Elder Wahlen.
My sisters and I went shopping on Black Friday morning and this is the haul we made in the back of my van! It was great to be together and do something fun and get our minds of of things.
