Welcome Home, Elder and Sister Madsen!

We had a little welcome home family get-together for Mom and Dad Madsen on Saturday at Grami Snow's house. It was a lovely evening, complete with a great dinner and fun entertainment. We are SO happy that Poppi and Gigi served a mission in Nauvoo, but we are equally as happy to have them back home. Welcome home!

Dylan the ever-posing child

Zack was taking refuge in the house once the mosquitoes started to appear - they like him! He tastes really GOOD!

Rick and Marci ( and the unborn one) are just too darn cute for words!

Looks like a lot of fun! The weather looked really beautiful there! Love the rodeo pics, way cute! You guys do lots of fun things together!:)

Ooooh! I loved every single picture and longed to be there with y'all! I'm so glad you included the pictures you did. It makes the distance not so bad -- although we only have 7 more weeks of the distance!

The cowboy pictures are truly priceless, all of them. We hadn't heard that Kade had placed -- that's great! We look forward to being there for the Rodeo next year.

How fun to have so much FAMILY over there. It seems so weird, I know none of them!!! They look nice though :)

You ARE a great photographer (just like the ward newsletter said =-)! Thanks for posting such cute candid shots. It's always fun to see little moments that could have been missed.

Thanks for taking the time to capture all of these great moments Matt and Nicole. Kade loves to tell everyone that when Muttin Bustin he should have got a re-ride because his sheep stalled for a few seconds and his score reflected it. We loved being home in Clovis and just being with good family. Of course we missed those family members who were not there!
