Two days after Thanksgiving, Chelsey got married to Scott Hayes in Smithfield at the Lions Lodge. It was a really nice ceremony and the bishop told them that they needed to be to church each Sunday. It was short and sweet, but it ended up being quite a long day....just how a wedding day should be!
They had a luncheon around 2. They served dutch oven food and we watched a cute video that Brittney made for the bride and groom. Afterwards, they let friends and family get up and say something to the bride and groom. Grandpa Cooper got up there and said some amazing things to the both of them. He bore his testimony of the gospel to them.

It ended up being a really great Thanksgiving Day. Everyone had a great time spending the day with each other. And it turned out being great, even though it was not at a typical location. On this Thanksgiving Day, we had a lot to be thankful for...little did we know that dad's leukemia was on its way into remission!

We rode in a rhino that had over sized tires and no mud flaps, so the mud would flip up onto my head, on top of my lap and all over the entire rhino. The machine was a disaster by the time with got finished. Bryce dropped me back at the cabin early and went out with the guys for another ride. They had a lot of fun, even though it was messy. The clean-up was the worst part of it. Bryce spent most of his night cleaning the rhino and all the clothes we were wearing while on the ride.
Later that night, we were all craving hamburgers and fries and so we went down to Bear Lake to a little restaurant that is open year round. I got a jalepeno burger and it was really good. Afterwards, we headed back to the cabin. We played more games and then spent the rest of the night watching "Ridiculousness".

While Stephanie and Paul were having a blast relaxing on the beach side and staying warm in the Mexican Sun, I was watching the Merrill kids for a few days. We had a nice little snow storm and I was able to capture this picture while the kids were out playing in the snow.
