Thanksgiving 2011

Gosh, I'm so behind!! I don't think I've taken this long of a blog break in a long, long time. I blame traveling(still have to blog our Disneyworld trip! We only took close to 1000 pictures..) and issues with carpal tunnel syndrome. Its hard to type for long periods of time right now. Sucky. Super sucky. Anyways, here is a recap of our Thanksgiving. The Friday before, Joey and I(and Ammon) were able to attend Cali's Thanksgiving Feast and music program at her school. It was the cutest thing ever! Cali was totally into it. She sang her heart out, threw us a few waves and "Hi Mom!"s and beat her drum like a true Indian. As you can see in the pictures below, she has a golden smile. I love it. She was very happy that day!

Thanksgiving Day we spent with our good friends, the Stromness Family. We were heading to Disneyworld just a couple of days later so we were so appreciative they invited us to their home for Thanksgiving. I did not have the time or energy to do a whole lot with all the packing and planning being done for the trip. They provided the turkey and lots of yummy extras- we brought over other sides and desserts. It was a big delicious feast! A great day with friends. Thanks yall! I am so grateful for so much, most importantly: our Savior & my family. And good friends too! I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

Just look at this happy little Indian and her drum.

Chicken nuggets and tots! A true Thanksgiving feast :)

Joey and I and our littles

Cali and her wonderful teacher, Ms. Ellen. Cali adores her. She is going to be so sad when this year is over. I pray every year that my girls get the best teachers for them. And every year they have been truly blessed with amazing teachers. I'm so thankful.

The whole gang at Thanksgiving.

Sheri made some mean desserts. And her homemade rolls are to die for.

Alyssa, Ella, Courtney & Aubrey enjoying dessert

Sometimes I like to take pictures of myself. Being silly.

Samantha & Cali. If only these two were born the same year, then they could hang out more:) Our other two daughters match up in ages almost perfectly. But they have an older daughter and we have a younger. Darn. Oh well...she is going to be our new babysitter and they only live down the street. So, we scored :)

This is what we do with Ammon when we don't want him to get into things. Just stick him in a box.

The End.
