Four years ago yesterday, our friends Cheryl and Miguel decided to take their niece Payton to the Cornbelly's activity at Thanksgiving Point. They asked if they could take Jenna with them.
Jenna and Payton got along well together. Payton was two years older than Jenna, but shorter. Many people who saw them together believed they were sisters. I did not go with them, but had remembered the event as Cheryl had tagged me in several photos on facebook. I had the opportunity of seeing them again when facebook memory page showed me the photos.
Cheryl had taken quite a few pictures; I
don't have permission to post the ones
she took - there were several of Jenna
I thought it fitting to see the photos while thinking about Jenna and commenting about the weather I hoped wouldn't spoil yesterday's plans. She did get to go to the corn maze after all, and rode the hayride and brought home a huge pumpkin that she had retrieved from the pumpkin patch. It was a great day.
Roland started breakfast/dinner early as his clock is on mountain though we live in Pacific. After the oven was warmed up (guess we did use it after all) and had cinnamon rolls ready to go in, he looked at the clock in the kitchen and realized that the missionaries wouldn't be arriving for almost two hours. Whoops.
I love to watch Roland cook. He is so thoughtful and so precise. He made everything on the small skillet, though I had found a much larger pan to use. He ended up using it to put all back into the oven just to keep it warm.
Dinner was wonderful.
