Happy Thanksgiving & Reception Pics

Well, I don't have a whole lot to share this week. Eean and Astyn (Brittney's sister and husband) have arrived in town with their baby Emory. It is exciting to finally meet him. His chubby cheeks and affable personality have made him very enjoyable. There have been some requests for our wedding pictures, so I uploaded the pictures from our reception and will heopfully get more loaded. If you click on a picture in the slideshow, it will take you to an album where you can download the pictures to your computer. If you have a specific picture you want in higher quality, I can email it to you, just let me know. I will be posting more pictures of our wedding in the coming days. Finally, Brittney and I would also like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy!

Dallin's MTC Entry

Well, I'm sorta new to this whole blogging thing so this might be a little weird. Anyway, I thought that the family would enjoy seeing some pictures of Dallin's little visit here to Provo. We decided to get together on Monday evening to have a Shaw family home evening together. Of course we had the future Elder give the lesson even though he had to be coerced a little bit. He shared 2 Corinthians 12: 7-10 which discusses Paul's thorn in the flesh. He's probably sure to fine plenty of "thorns in the flesh" as he enters the mission field. After the lesson we carved some pumpkins and just had a great time. It was great to have the family together and to see Dallin off. On Tuesday, Dallin came to my financial management class with me and quickly fell asleep - I have to admit I wanted to do the same thing. Finally he entered the MTC on Wednesday, a little nervous, but excited for his new adventure. He will be a great missionary and we were so happy we could see him off. For those who may not have his address, it will be the following while he is in the MTC:

Elder Dallin Shaw
MTC Mailbox 250
Arg-BAN 1231
2005 N 900 E
Provo, UT 84604

Anyway, that's enough of me talking, let's see some pictures...
