Thanksgiving Weekend!

Wow! What a totally busy and fun weekend!

We woke up Thanksgiving morning to smoke alarms going off (thanks to my dad lighting a fire in the stove for the first time)... my kids are petrified of smoke alarms, so we headed out of the house to find donuts at the local market. On our way, we got a text from Logan saying the leaves had finally fallen off the tree and we could come and rake them! The boys had been waiting for the chance to finally rake the leaves in St. George.
Brenner was the most dedicated... he didn't care how cold it was, he wanted a pile as huge as himself to jump in!
Terek got a little cold and preferred to snuggle with Sydney in a blanket most of the time. Joren preferred to stay in the house downstairs by the fire where it was much warmer.
Logan and Sydney even jumped in the leaves with the kids.
That afternoon we headed to Kanarraville for Thanksgiving dinner. The kids were way excited to finally play in the snow... talk about two seasons in one day!
It was cold outside and the snow was too powdery to make a snowman, but they still had fun.

Thanksgiving dinner was yummy as usual, but its not about the food... its about spending time with family. We had tons of fun doing a white elephant exchange and playing "Do you love your neighbor."
Joren loved baby Peyton... and she seemed to like him! He loved to hold her and he loved crawling around on the floor with her. We are sad to see her family move to New Mexico but we are excited that they have found a great job there!
We spent the night in cold Kanarraville then headed up North. We stopped in Draper and met up with some of Ryan's family to go to Incredible Pizza for food and fun!
The boys always love the games!
Then we headed up to Park City to meet Lucas, Shellie and Legacy for the night. We stayed at a hotel and went swimming! We went out to dinner and got a little shopping in.

Then we rushed down to Spanish Fork to hang out with Ry's family for pizza and snacks... and we got to make Gingerbread houses.

We headed home early Saturday evening for fear of being caught in a snow storm.

Wow! We went everywhere and did everything! It was tons of fun and we got to see most of our family.

Now it's time to get ready for Christmas!!!

It sounds like a lot of fun!
I'm still sad we missed you. I'm still exhausted. :P

I'm really glad that Brenner got to rake leaves. Big ones, too! Wow!
We had one great day of leaves and the *boom* snow.

WOW! You did have a totally busy weekend. Are you still sane? I wish I could've hung out friday morning before you left, but wrapping presents called? I love your hat in the last picture, so cute!

P.S. It's a good thing you came home saturday because the storm that blew in was, and is horrible.
