A very quick trip to Utah!

We took a very quick trip to Utah for the blessing of Samuel Max Openshaw. We left Fri. night at 7:00 and arrived at 5:30 am. A few hours of sleep and then got to enjoy the very busy life of the Openshaws. We had a quick dinner after church Sun. and took off at 4:30pm. Home by 2:00am. A few hours of sleep then back to work for all of us on Mon.!!! Busy but so worth it!
The very handsome Openshaw family - Max has really added a sweetness to their family.

Terry was already off changing clothes when it was picture time. Look how big Max looks already!

We got to go see Ellie perform with her dance class at a retirement home on Sat. They did "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" in their PJ's. It was cute but wish we could have seen her Nutcracker in her tutu a few days before.

We took Max shopping Sat. and thought he might like a few Santa hats!

We woke up to about 3-4 inches of fresh snow Sunday morning. It was so beautiful when the sun came out on our way to church. This is a picture I took of Amys house on the way to church - sorry it isn't very good!


  1. I am so sad we couldn't make it. I hope you are recovering from the lack of sleep!

    Can you believe I still haven't met Max? :0(

  2. Max does look huge in that picture. Sounds like a nice little visit and you got to have some snow.

  3. Thanks for coming! You are so dedicated to spending time with us and we love it, even at the expense of all night travel!
