Jeremiah and his family live in Colorado. Tara and him have 4 sons, and another on the way. We decided that we would visit them the week of New Years, giving us time during school holiday to have time with the older boys.
Making a Home Depot Gingerbread House
We helped them move to Colorado last May into their home where they are starting a new part of their lives after Jer graduating from UVU. The move was a feat all in itself, and the house they found was so nice after a year and a half in a tiny apartment.
For us to come back and see them all moved in and settled was quite fun. Braxton loves his new big back yard, digging for treasures in the dirt is his favorite. Weston was a newborn when they moved, so to see his growth crawling up and now down the stairs, walking around all the furniture, and opening cupboards and unloading them, just such joy for us to experience. It was also fun to see Jeremiah with his boys. A father interacting with his children, holding Weston when he was tired and ready for bed, while he fell asleep in his arms singing his little boy song. It is always fun to see first hand how the children you raised love the children they are raising. The interaction with their own children, teaching, talking, loving.

Dana and Weston
Weston, Dana, Braxton, JeremiahDana and Jer spent most of their time together working on little things in the house, just fixing here and there. Dana loves to have projects to do all the time. This is just what and who he is. So there were light fixtures changed, doorways framed, and just bonding going on. Braxton had his little tool box out, hammer, screwdriver, helping along the way. He too is a busy little boy, and talk! No one can talk as much as Braxton, well it seems that way.
