Thanksgiving Weekend 2010
what a great thanksgiving weekend.
so much to be thankful for.
the festivities started early this year...
wednesday afternoon i made 1 out of my 2 assignments for thanksgiving dinner = stinky salad!
don't let the name fool you, it is delicious! thank you grandma jackie.
early thursday morning, as in 5:30 AM, james and i were wide awake.
i guess we were excited for everything that would happen this weekend.
i made my grandma carol's rolls...from scratch!
it was super scary since i'd never done it before.
we packed up, got ready, and with my apron on...
we were off to the jeremy ruesch household in kaysville where i would finish the rolls and help chels get a few things ready for dinner
and the boys were off to their annual turkey bowl,
which turned out to be james' favorite turkey bowl EVER (he said)!
chels and i balanced all of our food assignments and were off to james' parents' house.
we arrived to all the familiar smells of thanksgiving: turkey, yams, and pickles (i love em).
the table was set so cute with little pumpkin name holders on our plates.
we sat down to a fabulous dinner and enjoyed lots of laughs.
afterward, we rolled ourselves out the door and to the movie theatre to see good ol harry potter.
i'm not a fan, so i took that opportunity to take a little nap. :)
then we were off to lisa's dad's to eat yet another thanksgiving dinner.
the house was packed with loved ones and lots of food. again, there was lots of laughter and lots of eating.
we headed out around 9 PM and were on the road again, snuggled in the van, and...
me without my purse :(
we just couldn't get enough of the theatre, so friday afternoon we went to see TANGLED.
chels and i braved the mall and super target,
the boys made a krispie kreme run for us (are we pathetic or what?),
and we were all in bed by 11, completely zonked out.
james and i went back home to run a few errands, and pick up my parents' christmas present (a post on that later),
and then we were headed over the river and through the woods, to the holmes house we went.
it has been a wonderful relaxing weekend,
even if byu did lose.
we are so blessed and so grateful for our families and everything we have been blessed with this past year.
i am especially grateful this week because dev will hit his one year mark on thursday :) :0 :)
