Thanksgiving and blessing

We had a great week last week. Some of the Peterson's and Brandon were able to come stay at our house for Thanksgiving. The boys got to golf while the cousins got to know eachother. In addition the Peterson's, the Taylor's were able to come to dinner on Thursday. (I only have video of that day so it should be up soon for your viewing pleasure). The food and company was great!!
Sunday Jeff blessed Jillian. It was so beautiful. It was very emotional and amazing to witness the priesthood through Jeff to Jillian. I loved it!!
A little messy house, two overflowed toilets, a popped mattress, double par rule, uninvited nats and fly's at Thanksgiving, and a few 1 mile jolks (jog/walk) later. . . we all had fun.

These are the cool Peterson's that came to Thanksgiving in Arizona.
Just about to go to church. Thankgoodness we took her dress off for the carseat, seconds after she spit up all over!!
I know it's blurry, but Jillian is so cute. She knows she's getting stronger and loves to practice holding up her head. She had to wear socks to bed this week b/c she's been scratching her face at night. I've refused to clip her nails ever since I sorta clipped off the tip of her thumb. :( I really am trying to be a good mommy to Jill.
Post blessing pix. Sorry Jared about the forehead and Becky's half-face. Judy, Jennifer and Zack were also there but had to split before the picture.
Jillian's photo shoot in her beautiful dress that Grandma Nettie made. We love that dress and love that girl.

Sometimes I read all the blogs on Sarah's site and when I read about clipping the tip of Jillian's thumb, I had to respond. I did that to Emily (Sarah's sister) when she was tiny, just like Jillian and to this day I haven't forgotten the trauma it caused me. Poor little Em had her thumb wrapped up in so much gauze, etc. that it was about the size of her hand! I know now that it wasn't as traumatic for her as it was for me (she's grown up to be perfectly well adjusted in spite of it...ha) but I just wanted you to know that you're not the only one! Enjoy Jillian...she is absolutely beautiful! ~Sarah's Mom, Karen

yeah, that's right Scott- we're the cool ones! BTW- I still haven't clipped Livie yet- hopefully I won't, it doesn't sound like fun!

She was so pretty in that blessing dress. The picture on the bottom of the post is sooooo cute. You can see her hairline, a perfect widow's peak. I wished I would have been in the back and my face cut off. I also love the top picture where Jillian is looking at Jeff and smiling.
