Daddy Daughter Date

A few weeks ago we met up with my dads youngest brother and my lovely cousin for a daddy daughter lunch at JCW's. I was introduced to the huge shakes and had such a good time getting to visit with everyone.

The Tree of Life

For Family Home Evening we went out to Draper to see The Tree of Life. It was beautiful! Not only was the tree amazing, the whole park was lit up with colorful trees and candy cane light posts.

Oh Christmas Tree

Anna helped me set up, fluff, and decorate the tree. She carefully set out some presents and posed by the stockings. I love how festive its getting in here!

Welcome Home

Wednesday, December 10th at 7pm we welcomed Megan home from her 18 month mission in Barcelona. Spain. We were excited and anxious and almost missed her by waiting at the wrong terminal, but were able to get to the right place in time to see her and 2 other sisters come home. Its hard to believe the waiting is finally over. I feel like the Christmas season can officially start now.

Temple Square

We went as one large Papenfuss group to Temple Square. It was impressive that we stayed together as well as we did. It was opening night and the place was packed.  It was magical and so fun being together even through the masses.

Hermana Bennett Returns

At 7pm Hermana Bennett will make her anxiously awaited return home from her 18 month mission in Spain. I am so excited for her to meet Anna for the first time. Anna was born right after Megan left on her mission. I know they will get along so well. Anna loves all her aunts and I know Megan will be no exception. I am so proud she served an honorable full time mission and I am even more excited to see what her post mission adventures hold. Welcome home!
