In the evening we stopped at the Tower Deli at Thanksgiving Point for dessert with the Nuttalls before saying goodbye to Crystal, who had a 10 p.m. flight back to Denver. The party is officially over now!
We're looking forward with a degree of trepidation to what 2017 hold for us!

We went out to dinner with Brittany and John at Malawi pizza. Brittany was hoping this was the last picture she'd have to smile for!
In the evening Brittany and John went to a Nuttall cousins party and the rest of us went to Braza Grill, a Brazilian steak house to celebrate! We ate a lot of red meat and came home and fell asleep watching an episode of Brokenwood on Acorn TV! Good times!

She gets her splint off in two weeks, and probably will not need therapy!
We had several people sing songs for us, then we joined in all singing together.
Here are a few pictures from a very fun evening!
While we waited to have dinner together, Crystal and Nolan assembled a car Brittany had left for Mabel.
My sister Joan stopped by with three of her children and serenaded us with Brady pipe bells. They're on their way to Standing Rock to stand in solidarity with the Sioux tribe. it was fun to hear what they are up to.
Fortunately, she developed a sort of truce with the horse later, and even learned to ride it!

We took a few snack breaks, and had fun making hot chocolate in our new Keurig machine.
While they were practicing I got to read a book to Mabel!

We went to see Luminaria at Thanksgiving point in the evening. It was a fantastic light display, ending with a beautiful garden with statues depicting Christ's ministry.
In the evening we went up to see the beautiful lights at temple square.

Lots of early Christmas surprises!
We enjoyed a late lunch at Thai Village in American Fork. The food was great, and the company even better!
I have made some progress, but it is little baby steps. I can pick up a dinner plate now, but I can not play the guitar yet!

It was fun showing them our new house. And even more fun catching up on their lives and the lives of their children. Now that Lynsey and her husband are in Salt Lake maybe we'll get to see them more often!
