Kristina emailed a couple weeks ago to let me know that they were pickin' up and headin' to Disneyland during Shawn's 10 day break and did we want to join them!?! Oh, how I wish we could have...still wishing (and waiting to see your post about your FABULOUS trip!)

They stopped by on their way down and I think our family thought we'd died and gone to heaven for the afternoon.

We ate pizza, the kids played, the adults chatted, (Brandon & Shawn in their foreign optometry tongue, and the ladies about girl stuff. :) I pawned 3/4 of our Halloween candy off on the Skinner kids, I got some advice on several of my current projects (I've been meaning to tell you, Kristina, that I've noticed multiple things I meant to, but did not get your opinion on...guess I'll have to take pics and send you an email...until you get texting! hint hint ;), and had an all around MARVELOUS 2 hours with them. It almost felt like they lived next door again.

Miss that so much.

Reagan & Gavin.

I don't think I've ever mentioned this on the blog, but Jefferson, Grant & Reagan were like another set of siblings to Gavin. They were always so sweet and kind to him and he LOVES them back!
All the kiddos.
Jemma, Grant, Jefferson, Reagan, Carter & Gavin.

Silly faces.

Our families.

Me & Kristina.

THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU for stopping by and taking the time to hang out with our family, even if it was only for a couple hours! We have missed you guys tremendously. Hopefully this visit will tie us over until the next time we see each other...

in six months...

when we come back to Oregon and visit YOU!

Oh, hurray for good friends! That's so fun that they got to stop and visit you guys. Too bad you couldn't go to Disneyland with them!!! But maybe you can save it, and go with us! :)

PS Isn't Kristina the BEST for advice/knowhow on ANY project?! Well you BOTH are!

Oh we had so much fun visiting you guys. Thanks again for lunch! I wish we could have stayed all day long. I need a copy of that group picture. None of mine turned out as cute. I just love how Jemma is looking at me. I love her to death! Your family is priceless, I love you all.
