Right after I got done with my finals, Chris's friend Monique came to stay with us for a few days. Chris met her family while he was serving his mission in Brasil and she is nannying in California and was on vacation and came to spend the weekend with us! We started the visit off with a trip to the Mesa Temple to see the temple lights. We invited Chris's brother Jared and his family and Chris's sister Anna and her family. It was a fun night! And it wasn't even cold, so we didn't need our jackets! (we had them anyway though.)

I love this little girl Cheyenne! (and I'm her favorite, she told me so!)
My cute nephews and niece! I love these little guys!
Then we drove home and we drove past the Gila Valley Temple to show it to Monique because she wanted to see where we were married! The next day, I went to work and they came to visit.
Then that night, my sister and I were in a baking mood so we baked some Snicker's surprise cookies. Super delicious! Monique was fascinated by our huge chocolate brick that we use to melt for candy and stuff at Christmas time. Caleb came over and we played a game of phase 10 also. I lost.

We also went 4-wheeler riding and gun shooting!!

 (The sun was super bright!)
We took Monique on the Thatcher tour, which of course included cotton pickers!
The last thing we did in Thatcher was we went to our ward party, where Erica and I stole Moniques camera and took this lovely picture!
On our way out of town, we stopped by the Gila Valley Temple to show Monique the nativity scene that they had.

Thus was the start of our Christmas break! We had a blast with Monique and were sad to see her leave to go back home. We were glad we were able to share a few days with her though! it was great!
