At the start of October we decided to take a family trip to Boise, Idaho. We wanted to visit with family and friends, and while we were there, we decided to host a little get-together and Jim's Aunt Nona's, and bless Clover.
We had most of our Boise Callister family come, as well Jared and Audie Jacobs with their children, and our friends, the Hallings.
Jim smoked pork shoulder and made yummy pulled pork sandwhiches. Other people brought sides and desserts, and it ended up being a lovely little event.
I posted a few pictures below:
Hunter and Allie (below) have an arranged married. I'm pretty sure they're on board since they "got married" to each other while we were visiting in Boise. They're so cute. I really do hope it works out for them! :)
Jim blessed Clover on Sunday, October 4th at Aunt Nona's house in Boise. The blessing is below:
