Ry, Gramps, and Devon entered a coyote hunting tournament and were gone for a day and a half. We did a little decorating while they were away...
|Dallin wanted to photograph the nest he built for his dove|
|I bought that sign for Ryan for Christmas last year. It somehow ended up in the Christmas decorations box, so we thought we'd hang it anyway|
|Grandpa gave the kids their Christmas money, and Tori has had a blast with her playdough bakery. She created some stunning baked goods|
|Caught in the sugar bucket|
|And........the guys ended up taking |
Go Team Henrie! Ryan sweetly gave me his prize money....I think I'll let him go again next year :)

pretty much singlehandedly. It was remarkable and delicious! That guy is amazing!

|Sweet Henry wasn't feeling well, so Derek pretty much tortured him all day chasing him around and trying to talk him into playing.|
|After much suspense and to the dismay of many older cousins and siblings, the owner of the hole-in-one penny and lucky winner of the wooden shoe tradition!|
As he put all his money into the zip-loc, he started to sing a little tune, "ALL MY MONEY, ALL MY MONEY, ALL MY MONEY!!" Hilarious.
|Whitney took all the girls into the hair salon (the bathroom) and gave them all some gorgeous up-dos!! Thanks Whit!|
|Savannah ticked off that I took her picture!|
|Then Grandpa wipped out eight beautiful pies that he baked all by himself. They all looked splendid and tasted even better!!|
|Time to head south....|

Last week in a lesson I taught, I felt the strange urge to incorporate Mrs. Potato Head into the lesson. I did so despite the skepticism of my husband, who felt it was quite a stretch in the analogy department. Since then, I've been surprised how much fun my OLDER kids have had playing with the darling gal. I thought Derek would be the one who played with it, but nope....Dallin has probably spent the most time with his new love:

While at the baby blessing, some Henries expressed their desire to get copies of the photo of the ranch on our wall that my brother took. These are for you! See if these have high enough resolution or if I need to do something different. I can e-mail them as well. Thanks you guys! I love you all!

Sunday morning we had Ryan's cute cousin's baby blessing. That little guy is so sweet and such a good baby! Cam gave him a tender blessing - too cute! The dinner was here afterwards, and I just have to say that I love the Henrie family. I have never felt like an in-law/outlaw with them. From the minute I got engaged to Ryan, they have treated me like one of their own. It was so fun to get caught up on their lives....
Then it was finally time for Ryan to come home!!! It was like Christmas Eve...I was counting down the hours and could hardly wait until he walked in the door. Can I tell you how much I love that man?? We haven't been apart that long in years. I am so, so incredibly grateful to have him around! He really is my best darn friend on the planet. I am posting some of his pictures from Colorado; can't really tell you the story behind them all, but he could :)

|Not a deer, but he was glad he was able to annihilate something :)|
|Bambi lives on thanks to Grandma Torrie's prayers.....|
