Well it has been forever since I posted anything, nobody probly even looks at our blog anymore. I know this is a really REALLY long post, But heres a little bit of whats going on in our lives..... Kyle started working at Wells Fargo the end of July and he loves it. He is alot happier there than he was at subway which makes me happier! I am now working at Canyonlands Youth Center; I started there the end of October, which also makes me happy because I am not working at Old Tymer anymore! Yay!
We had a busy summer of camping and playing with our family, and have had a fun filled fall and winter with our new jobs. In July we had our McDaniel Family Reunion. My mom was in charge of it this year so we got to help plan it and cook and everything. It was really fun. We went up to Camp Jackson on the Blue Mountain to a fun little campground area they have there. We had fishing contests and went on trail rides and played with all the crazy kids. One of the nights we had my grandma tell us stories about when she was growing up and about when her and grandpa met and about our parents growing up. It was really neat to hear all those stories. It was alot of fun and will always be one of my favorites because it was Grandmas last.
My sister Klea has a ranger and she left it here after the reunion. Kyle and I took it out to arch canyon and it was a blast. We of course took zuma and she tried to sleep but it didn’t work out to well for her. We live in such a beautiful area!!!
Zuma fell out of the truck and tore something in her leg, she was drugged up for a while and this is what she would do. She would always fall asleep like this. SOOO funny. She was a crack dog...
Every time we go camping with my dad we HAVE to cut wood. I grew up doing it and didn’t enjoy it much then but now I love it! And so do all the grandkids!
My sister Sheena had her baby in September; they named him Durham Bayles Callahan. He is so dang cute. I had to go down and see him when he was born so we drove down on a Saturday and back on Sunday. But it was worth it. He is getting so big and chunky now. I took some pictures of him around Halloween they turned really good. My sister-in-law also had a baby in November. They named her Ava. She is a doll. She is also getting pretty chunky. We have some cute nieces and nephews!! I couldn’t find my pictures of Ava tho :(
My grandma McDaniel passed away at the end of October. She was really healthy; she walked every morning and was very active so it was very sudden and unexpected. She was always traveling somewhere, and was planning another trip. She has been to Israel twice and went on several church history tours and temple tours with her friends. It was kinda hard for me since I've lived in the same town as her pretty much my whole life, and she has been there for every big and little event in my life. We loved her alot and she will be greatly missed. Her funeral was the day before Halloween so all the family stayed here for that. It was fun to see all the little kids dressed up and it was good for everyone to have that after the sad week.
We had a good Thanksgiving, all my sisters came and we had alot of fun. We made beaded watch bands and played games and just hung out. Christmas with Kyle's family was also lots of fun. We went to Ellis and Mable's for Christmas Eve and Ellis sang O Holy Night. It was pretty awesome. We went out shooting on Christmas Day and of course got stuck in the snow.
So that’s what we have been up too. We are always busy doing something and always finding adventures. We love our crazy dog and she keeps us very well entertained. We can’t wait for summer so that we can go camping again. But for now we will just have to play in all the snow……
