Thanksgiving Weekend

Etsy giveaway winner:

Comment #9: Jenny Cardenas! Thanks to everyone who entered!! I've learned that I don't really like hosting giveaways because I want everyone to win and I wish I could give a set to each person that entered. Congrats Jenny! I'll send you an email to get your address!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend, it was so nice to have a few extra days off from work to spend time with family and friends, eat good food, and relax. What a wonderful reminder of how truly blessed we are.

We left Wednesday evening for Temple to spend a few days with Matt's family.  I was so busy chasing around a certain toddler I didn't take many pictures but I love this one of Avery and Emily.  Em is so good with Avery, I wish Matt's brother's family lived closer so we could see them more often.

Sweet little girl.  She loves being outside.

Matt and the kids.  Not sure what Avery's up to, just being a busy body, I guess!

This picture cracks me up.  Have you ever eaten pomegranate seeds directly from the fruit?? They are delicious but messy! The three of us stood there for close to 30 minutes devouring these delicious little seeds.  I think Em stole some of mine. ha!

We headed home Friday afternoon and had a relaxing weekend.  Sunday we decorated the house, bought our tree and hung lights!

Here is my little helper after waking up from her nap.

Chillin on the couch with her fruit snacks, watching Elf.

Picking out a tree!  Hopefully one day we'll live somewhere (COLORADO) where we can go cut our own!

Fascinated by the lights :)

First time putting up lights on our house.

Have I mentioned how much I truly love this sweet little girl?? 

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!


  1. Maybe someday we'll both live somewhere (COLORADO) where we can cut down our own tree ;) Your little girl is so sweet!! Such a fun age :)

  2. Didn't realize that you blogged. Wanted to tell you how adorable your daughter is and congrats on the new pregnancy!!
