Garrett's leavin on a jet plane

So as soon as we get one back we have to send one away again. I am never more grateful the Lord has blessed us with all girls so far than when I have to say goodbye to one of my brothers! Because of the new MTC rule that you have to drop the missionaries off at the curb the girls and I went to Aberdeen the night before to say goodbye, Chan was in charge of mutual that night so he said goodbye on Sunday. Garrett saying goodbye to Whitney and Hailey.
Garrett with the "three little maggots" as he lovingly refers to the girls
Me and G-Dub covering a zit he had on his forehead, yes it's much less apparent with the finger on it. Excuse my tear-stained face.
In true Garrett fashion, I was bawling saying goodbye to him and he was saying "What?" and comforting me and acting all embarassed but really inside loving that I was going to miss him so much. He is such a great kid and SO funny, I know his talents will bring many people to the gospel and his strong testimony will make him a great missionary!

Jazz vs. Suns in style..

So near the end of January, we were able to enjoy a great day in the Utah with the fam, thanks to Hailey watching my kids! Thanks Boog! We went to the Jazz game, and thanks to my dad's "connections" we sat in some awesome seats. Let's just say we usually sit a little higher than we did that night! Two of the seats were in the front row, we didn't make the rotation since the married kids are off the payroll, ha ha ! It was a great time!

Tanner was reliving his old glory days when he ran through the banner we made for him so we tried to recreate it!

Good to be Home!
It has been so great to have Tanner home, I know he was an awesome missionary! Halle and Quincy weren't sure what they thought of him at first, but warmed up quickly! We love you Tan!
