Thanksgiving...Park City with the Lyons

Heather: Thanksgiving is the time to gather with our families to express gratitude for them and for all the blessings we receive from our Father In Heaven. So here we are gathered around our  daughter Val's beautiful table with Rachel, Laura, and Sheldon, (Dean's brother). Karli, Andee, and Dean were there too of course! Val took two days to prepare a magnificent meal, which we consumed in 30 minutes!

Andee baked her first apple pie all on her own, she even peeled and cut the apples! At age 7 she did a fantastic job! I think she is going to take after her mother and be a great cook!

Friday we all went to the skating rink for some fun on the ice. Jaime and Nate skated around holding hands, while Karli practiced some figure skating moves. They stopped speeding around long enough to get this cute shot!

Karli and Andee are going to perform in an Ice Review just before Christmas. Andee is practicing her one foot glide! She has been taking lessons for just a little while! We had a wonderful time with our family in Park City but we missed being with the Deyholoses, the Ricks, Pettys, and Derek and family. Can't wait until Tam and Nick's wedding when we will see them all!Posted by Picasa

A Day with Tamra & Nick at the Air Show

Norm: We are now settled into our home at Sand Hollow Resort in Southern Utah for the winter. Las Vegas is a short drive to the south and a great opportunity to spend the day with our granddaughter Tamra Deyholos and her fiance Nick Rich at the Nellis Air Force Base Air Show.

Nick is a student at Utah Valley University in Aviation Science. He has logged over 200 hrs. air time and currently working on his complex ratings in this twin Diamond. UVU was one of the sponsors of the air show.

A Great Weekend in Provo

Norm: Utah Valley University Wolverines women's soccer take their conference championship. Our granddaughter Jamie Lyons #12 played another fantastic game. As a senior, this was her final home game, and scored the final goal with 1 1/2 seconds left on the clock beating South Carolina 4-0.

It was like old home week visiting with the Garners and Alex Recksiek reminising our missions in Hungary and remembering the wonderful people that we met there. Posted by Picasa
