My sister in law Kimi told me she was expecting me to have some fun activities planned to keep her entertained since the grand kids weren't coming this year so in case you ever have to entertain a 27 year old girl here are some ideas... make a gingerbread house, take her sledding, build a snowman, act out the Nativity scene, and have plenty of board games on hand. I think she along with everyone else had a great time this week, I know I did. Although we were glad to see the kids when they did come. We let them play Rock Band which they loved and they were really good at it to. We are really grateful for our families and love that we got to spend time with them over the holiday.
All in all we had a fun filled holiday and got everything we needed and wanted.
Like I said we all had our wants and needs met... who's was a want and who's was a need Im not sure.

So anyway this year we spent Thanksgiving with my family in Vernal, we had a very fun but busy holiday. We started off Wednesday night seeing Twilight with all the girls, then the boys had the famous turkey bowl on Thursday morning
Then we had dinner at my grandma rose's (she does a Wonderful job) and right after headed off to meet the other side of the family for our family pictures. After pictures headed back to grandmas for dessert and games. (Im still waiting to get our family pictures)
Friday woke up early (thanks to Jett) so we got a jump start on the day concerting we had two baby showers one for my cousin Jill and then after one for my sister-in-law Michelle
And ended that night with a big family poker game. Saturday we had a little break during the day but sent the family on a wild goose chase that night, literally. We played the "amazing race" which even though they all had something to say about how they would have changed it they had fun and all want to play it again. And to end the holiday weekend we had a candle lit game of phase 10 not because we thought it would be fun but because there was a black out. So all in all a great fun weekend. Now bring on Christmas...

Thats right we took a much needed vacation to Disneyland with the family last week and had a wonderful time. It was so fun watching all the kids and seeing how much they enjoyed it(by "kids" I mean daves mom)every ride was totally awesome or so cool and even went as far as mind blowing... I think my favorite ride was toy story and for Dave hands down Pirates which we only rode like 100 times. All around we had a great time. Thanks everyone for coming and for planning it. We love you guys!

Also I was able to learn how to can salsa. WOW that was... well to be honest, not fun I mean I loved spending time with my mom and learn a good life skill but I don't know if it is something I will be doing again next year. Haha I felt like a duck out of water my mom was asking me to "blanch" the tomatoes and "water bath" the jars! I had to look around to make sure she was talking to me because I had NO idea what she was talking about. But we had a great time with each other and I now know what blanching and water bating are plus we made a lot of salsa. Thanks again mom I love you so so much and am so greatful for you!
Check out daves sweatshirt he said it made him fit into Vernal
Mom and I just staring our 7 hr canning experience
A job well done!
