If I had a Wagon, I would...

We took little week-long vay-kay to Colorado last week. We had to come back the day before Thanksgiving because Jon had to work Thanksgiving Day. Some people are too dumb to realize that they're not supposed to be sick on holidays. All the Tolman siblings and their offspring made it. We didn't take as many pictures as we could have, but nobody looked very good, so it wasn't much of a loss.



Emma and Clara Benefield gracefully entertained our girls in the back yard for much of the week.




Hyrum Benefield is a boy who excels at rescuing imaginary aardvarks and chinchillas.


Emma Benefield and Eva Terry offered a Grammy-worthy performance as fairy princesses who assist distressed airline pilots. (Yes, I know Grammies are a dime-a-dozen. Come on, they didn't even have their lines memorized.)


Annie Benefield really helped Lucy feel better about her hair and her ability to appear feminine in general.




The ladies can be seen here preparing food, minding the children, ironing plastic bead crafts, and generally functioning efficiently.


Here are the women's husbands at the same moment.




As you can see, all three of these children have very different reactions to marajuana.
Grandpa Tolman just found out that all three of these adorable little girls are compatible organ donors.
Ben's feet.
Grandma Bowen, who has always been a little bit off her rocker, has now slipped into a more forgetful, but more pleasant state of off-the-rockerness. This was the first time she'd ever met any of her great-grandchildren.

Too bad you didn't get to stick around for the blowing up of the turkey carcass.

Jon, you missed your calling to be a professional cruise ship dancer. Too bad.

Rachel said...

Jon, you should be on MTV with moves like that.

It's a good thing my mother is too off-her-rocker to learn to use a computer now, or she'd be not-speaking-to-you again for the next 20 years (that would make her 105 years old). You dance like a lively gopher, you cute boy, you. Love, Mom

Jon is that a goatee? It reminds me of the time that you were biking down the south hill of BYU campus and a ninja jumped out and put a stick in your spokes and you skidded on your face and had to grow a beard to cover up the scabs.

It WAS a goatee. I think it got to be longer than it ever had, but I'm having some sinus issues, and I got tired of washing boogers out of my moustache. Facial hair gone.

Rachel said...

Such foxy feet!

Megan and Jeremy said...
