Our First Thanksgiving as a Family

Well now the holidays are officially upon us. We had our first Thanksgiving as a new family. We got together at The Petersen house with Rod, Kris, BJ, Zoey, and Tyler. Rebecca was not able to be with us for dinner. :o( Also joining us was my brother, Justin, my parents were in Boise with my extended family but Justin had to work Friday so he couldn't go up. It was so much fun. Emma slept most of the time, she has a little head cold. The fun part was we ate in the unfinished new addition. It made for a lot more room in the kitchen for dishing our plates. Then later we played this game called "Things" its way fun for a bigger group. Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!


Emma's Blessing Day

So we had Emma's blessing day on November 1st. Brock did an amazing job! Emma's dress was make by Kris when she was pregnant with BJ, her oldest son, in hopes that one day she would have a daughter to use this dress for. Well most know that Brock only has brothers, so this dress has been waiting for a little girl to use it and Emma was the lucky first one to use it. Emma also has a special blessing day blanket that her Aunt Zoey crocheted for her, I don't have a picture of that yet but when I do I will add it to this post. They are both so beautiful!! We were happy to have so many family and friends in attendance for this special day!! Thanks to all those who helped and attended.
