ELI


My brother Eli came her on Saturday and plans to stay through the rest of this week. It has already been so much fun ! My favorite thing to do with him is SHOP! He loves it as much as I do! Plus, I know if I ask him about something I try on, I will get an honest opinion. (added bonus).


(I think we really shopped til' we dropped)

We dropped the kids off to school and spend the day shopping away in St. George. He bought me a FAB pair of new sunglasses, (totally my style) and some fabulous jewelry. What a sweetheart!!


I am so glad to have this time to spend with him. He sends in his papers in a month. So this will be the last large amount of time we get to spend with him before he leaves! We are so excited for him to experience this opportunity to serve the Lord. He is such a great kid and we will miss him so much!

I am sure we will post more soon! We have a lot planned!!

Wow! I can't freakin' believe how big Eli is. Geez, and he's old enough to go on a mission. That's CRAZY good!!
Bon, you are So blessed to have your family close by and I enjoy the pictures and stories of you all getting together. What a wonderfully beautiful family. I always wish for a big family like Hans (and yours) when I was younger. You all were always up to fun stuff.
Enjoy your week with your brother and tell him hello for me. I can't wait to hear were he goes for his mission.

So, I now think that you have this incredibly fun life while I am stuck at school! (School's not that bad, I am just jealous!)

He is the cutest stinkin' kid! What a hottie! I'm so glad that you get this chance to be with him before his mission. Those days for me were invaluable!

I would probably enjoy shopping more if I had oodles of moola to spend!!! One of these days I will save enough to go on a big shopping spree and I'll come to St. George and we will go Shopping and it will be SO MUCH FUN!!! And I will LOVE every second of it!!! And... I think your shopping company has a lot to do with it because when I ask cody if he likes something it's always, "yah, sure" or "that's fine!" I guess I just need an exciting shopping buddy!!!

Just getting caught up on your blog. You sound just like me. Family is EVERYTHING. I love it when my sisters visit. You have a beautiful family. Great photo shots too!

Eli's coming hide your hearts girls. (have you ever heard that song?) What a cool brother. I love that he went shopping with you. And bonus... He bought you stuff! What a cool guy!

Adams Family said...

Wow! That is Eli! It's been awhile since I saw him. This will embarass him, but the memory I have most of him and Everett is them sitting in the mud puddle in our driveway. Ha! That was funny to watch those two. Anyway, tell him hi!

i can't believe he is old enough to go on a mission!! i can still just see him as a 5 year old with boogers in his nose Ü jk.. he was always a cute kid. looks like you had a blast with him.. you are all so fun ALL the time. being with family is the BEST
glad to hear i'm not the only one that is on the verge of having shop-a-holic-ism!!

He is not old enough to be going on a mission. He is still that little boy I visited with when I would visit your family. Well that happens when we get older. Keep me posted on his calling. He has become a handsome young man.

I am so glad Eli was able to spend some time with you and your family before he starts on his wonderful journey for the lord. What blessings he will receive. It looks like you had a great time shopping!! I just don’t know when you find time to do everything you do!

The Gray Gang said...

You're the best! I knew you would know the answer! Thanks for your help!!!

Becca said...

Looks like he's having so much fun! Mom says maybe he'll come live with you till he goes on his mission . . . that would be AWESOME.

Love you guys!

Christina said...
