Day and Night of Lights

Today was another whirlwind day for the Hamilton's Robert had to work both jobs today. Tyler started out the day with a fashion show for the stake achievement day girls. I had planned on going to the temple early this morning so that I could be back before Tyler had to be at the stake center at 9:30. However Faith was up at 4:30 am and didn't fall back to sleep until around 6:00. So I couldn't go until after Tyler was done at noon.

So then I went and did some ordinance work at the temple and then picked up Tyler's friend Katie on the way home. Katie was coming over to put up our lights since Robert was working all day. Katie puts up her families lights and really enjoys it. Rob ended up getting off an hour early, but he still let Katie and Tyler put up the lights. The girls did a great job and Jesse and Faith really wanted to help.
After a quick dinner of leftovers, we all headed out to Caldwell's Night Light parade. The kids enjoyed watching the beautiful floats and Katie's mom joined us to watch the parade. I let Tyler and Katie be in charge of the camera and they did a pretty good job. After the parade, Tyler went with Katie and her mom to watch Twilight (again) while Faith, Britain, Jesse, and I went home for some nice hot chocolate. Overall it was a great, busy day.

Here are Britain, Jesse, and Faith after the parade.The finished light on our house.
