What a quick year it has been! Elder Page is having a great week. He will be spending Thanksgiving with the Bell Family. I love them! Thanks for taking care of our Dallin. We will be going to Grandma Page's house for a big Sleep over. The kids are pretty excited about having all of their cousins there...crazy! We hope that every one has a wonderful day with family and friends...and take the time to thank you Heavenly Father for all of lives blessings.
I have been thinking of all the things that I am thankful for...It did not take me long and I did not have to look far. Everything seem to lead me back to my family. The Lord has been so very kind to me. I am so grateful. I love this time of year to stop and ponder on life's greatest joys. I am hoping that every one has a very full Thanksgiving, both in your hearts and your bellies.

Jaclyn enjoying the first snow there in Russia, Jaclyn put a coat on!!!
I love this time of year when it starts to get cold, and the skies are clear for star gazing...
What a perfect night for a hayride. It was cold, but not windy, perfect for snuggling under a blanket and drinking hot cocoa. Our youth had an activity at Sister Long's home. We cooked hotdogs over a fire and made smores, yummy! Everyone had a great time.

Elder Page is doing OK this week. We were concerned about him because of the fires there in CA. They are close to him. He is about 20 minutes south of the fires. He is fine in Irvine, but a lot of people have lost their homes. He asked us all to keep those people, who are suffering, in our prayers. On a good note, Corey has found work, and he received the Aaronic Priesthood on Sunday and is so very happy. The Lord has really blessed them for the efforts and faith. Till next week...The picture is of Elder Page and Sebastian!

It was a quiet week for Elder Page. His highlight was getting Grandma Myra's homemade bread!!! Thanks so much Myra for sending that. Corey Bell one of his recent baptisms is out of work. Elder page would appreciate our prayers in Corey's behalf. Elder Page says, "Corey just has a testimony of fasting and faith that if he sacrifices in that small way for the Lord that he will be blessed with those things that he stands in need of most" That is a great testimony of someone who is newly baptized. Corey will also be receiving the Priesthood sunday, he is so excited. This is a wonderful family, that has taken such good care of Dallin for us. We love the Bells!!

I can't believe that it has almost been a year since this picture was taken. Two of our favorite missionaries, Elder Jenkins and Elder Gillett. They are both home now. Elder Jenkins has been home for 7 mths and Elder Gillett a little over a week. They both called "home" today! It was so good to hear from them. They were like my own kids, we love them
Not too much going on this week. Soccer season is over for High School. We lost Wednesday night to E. Forsyth, sorry Dallin the boys worked real hard. I'm going to miss that, but we do have next year to look forward to. By the time all of our kids get through High School, we will have had 12 consecutive years of a Page playing soccer there, wow! But now we have club starting with Zach so there is no end to soccer.
We are looking forward to Thanksgiving in a couple of weeks. It's crazy to think that the Holidays are already here again. There will be so much for us to be thankkful for this year. (I'll save our list till Thanksgiving week)

Elder Page sounded so great in his letter this week. He is still in Irvine and will be atleast through Thanksgiving. He really likes it there. The members are really supportive and he is enjoying watching the testimonies of those he has taught grow. Thanks again to everyone who has been writing to him. It really mean a lot to him.
How many times have we seen this picture, of us at a soccer game. We have been doing this for 16 years non-stop! I guess we have atleast 5 more to go. It was a rough game for the Guachos. It was there last game for fall. They will start back up in Feb 09. This year has flown by. We'll be watching our Grandchildren before we know it.
Matt broke his hand in saturday's game against PAGE. He flew really hard and he thought he broke it and continued to play and fell again, and still continued to play. He is one tough cookie or just crazy! He stopped a big play though, so he says it was worth it :) Matt has now taken on his dad's nickname "Charlie Brown" He is taking it all in stride and with a great attitude. He is grateful it was not his left hand. (Way to be positive Matt) By the way they did win 2-0. They are now in the 3rd round in playoffs. Wednesday they play E. Forsyth.
