A quick story...

Last spring I was looking through Erik’s school papers and came across test.  There were 25 official questions, and then there was a 26th multiple choice question penciled in – in 5th grade handwriting it said:

26. Who is awesome?
                        a. Erik
                        b. Erik
                        c. Erik
                        d. Erik


Who else is awesome?  This guy is.  'Jay' left about six months ago to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Awesome-ness.  Jay and Erik.

be at peace

These are words I love.

Bid thine heart all strife to cease;
With thy brethren
be at peace.

-Joseph L. Townsend

And the November highlight was my entire family getting together for Thanksgiving!
Many thanks to Heidi and D.J. for hosting.
Here are the cousins…

A good looking bunch...even the one making a silly face.
