The day after Thanksgiving was a very exciting day for me! It was the day that my mom and dad brought me down a huge piece of freedom in the shape of a Chevy Venture. Yes a minivan that my dad found on surplus at BYU! Let me just say that freedom is very sweet!
My parents also brought some things from my Grandma Krantz’s house that no one else wanted or that my mom and aunt Mel thought I should have. My whole front room had stuff piled high with things that they had brought in the van and the truck that my dad brought down. Of course, I rarely think about taking photos of things I’m in the middle of, but I should have taken a photo of the piles.
On Sunday, after church, we took a picnic to the Mesa Temple and walked around enjoying the lights and crèche collection that they had on display.
Here’s Vivian walking around with her sandwich.
Christian had a difficult time sitting still as well…
Vivian refused to have her shoes on at one point and was then put in the stroller.
Christian was on one while we were there so I thought I’d document his attitude just so he knows in the future that no, he was not a perfect child.
The next day, Christian went to school and my dad and I worked on getting the car registered. It was a long day but I was so grateful to my dad for giving me freedom that I didn’t mind too much. Sadly, my parents had to leave the next day so I took some photos of them with Vivian before they left. These are taken in my messy craft room so please ignore the mess.
So she did it in their laps while I took pictures. Here are the photos…they are all so cute, I couldn’t decide which one I liked best.
By the way, for those of you who’ve noticed, yes, Vivian is obsessed with hats.
