sante fe railyard & my family

the last family that visited us in october was mine. i loooooooooove when they come. this time they brought both of my grandma's, it made the whole trip that much better. i love my grandma's so much. i'm happy that they were able to make the trip and see our life here. grant and i spoke in church while they were here too. having them and my family both there to see us made me feel much more comfortable. with having moved so much... we get asked to speak a lot so it's nice that my nerves are getting a bit more used to it. wish my family could come every time, maybe that way i could muster up the courage to add some more personality and throw a joke in here or there. i mean my nerves are getting more used to it but i can't relax enough to be funny. and i am pretty funny.

sadly, we took NO pictures of my family. how lame. it happens every time! i think it's just because we are too busy enjoying each other. while they were here we went to a bunch of estate sales here in albuquerque. and then we drove to the farmer's market in santa fe. something i've been wanting to do FOREVER. we hit up the farmer's, artist's and flea markets there. i thought that my dad might be a bit bored but turns out he was just having the time of his life. buying little snacks everywhere. kinda makes me laugh when i think about it. anywho we've been scoring pretty big at all these market's and estate sales. but hopefully that will be another post.

I love Santa Fe! Years ago my family passed through there on the day after Thanksgiving, and we were able to catch the lighting of the tree and the glow of the illuminaries. It was magical. If you guys have a chance go over there next week! It's the perfect kick off for the holidays!
