Too Much of a Good Thing

You've heard the phrase too much of a good thing?  In other words, excess can cause you harm?  Is there such thing as too much of a good thing when that good thing is FAMILY?

We had a blast in Thatcher celebrating Thanksgiving.  We had somewhere near 40 people coming in and out of Grams and Papa's house this week.  My grandparents spoiled us rotten with delicious food.  The best part, however, was just being together as a family [although we were really sad to be missing Dad this year].  I took so many pictures!  Over 100!  Most are of Hyrum, of course...he hit some major milestones.  He's crawling like a fiend and has started to pull himself up!  I am amazed with how much he improves everyday and how he figures things out. 

 "A grill?!" you say.  Why, yes.  Yes, that is a grill and that is our Thanksgiving dinner in the making.  Hyrum, with his green beans and turkey [Gerber style] probably had the most traditional Thanksgiving dinner...

Papa and all of his wonderful helpers put together Mexican Bar-b-que for Thanksgiving every year.  Thinly sliced, delicious steak on homemade tortillas with homemade salsa and homemade guacamole.  Then you add green chiles, cheese, queso, or whatever else your heart pleases and then you eat!  And if you try really hard to control yourself, you can have some jello salad and pie [chocolate if you're me, pumpkin if you're Tony]. 


And of course, "Look, Mom.  I pulled myself up!"  What a big guy!!  He really is compared to Gunner and Gavin, the two newest members of the family!

I'm so proud of my aunt Teonna and uncle Luke for making such beautiful little boys!  They have five kids under the age of five now, but they're cute as can be and such a wonderful example to us!

More to come in the next few days, because remember?  There's no such thing as too much of a good thing when that good thing is FAMILY!
