The First Thanksgiving...

...on our own anyway :) We stayed home and had a Wonderful Thanksgiving meal with our friends Sam and Christian. We each made some of the dishes and had a great time.

We cooked our first Turkey (thanks for your help mom!) And even though I was disgusted at first with everything that entails,

it turned out pretty well.

I bought these chocolate bars...

and covered them with some scrap booking paper...

to make place settings.

And while Jeff was at the store buying whip cream for our pumpkin pie, he surprised me and brought me home this beautiful boquet of fall flowers inside a cornucopia!

We made stuffing, green bean casserole, Pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce and the turkey. And they brought sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, and apple pie, gravy, corn, and TX Roadhouse rolls!!!

It was a wonderful day to reflect on all the blessings we have. Happy Thanksgiving :)

Craft Night

These are some of the crafts I made at our Relief Society Craft Night last week. I was really happy with how they turned out!

Happiest Place on Earth...take 317 least I'm pretty sure that's how many times my family has been to Disneyland...well, maybe 318, I can't be positive ;) But it never gets old this time it was even more magical because the twins LoVeD it!

During the car ride we sang songs and played games...

...and we even stopped to get dinner with Jeff's brother B.J., Brandi, and our nephews Bennet and Cameron. It was a great pitstop :)

To make it even more magical, the first thing we saw when we walked into the park was Mickey Mouse!!!

We rode on the carousel, saw Rapunzel and Flynn Rider,

and were guests at a Princess Character Breakfast! We saw Ariel, Belle, Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty. Best part of the whole trip!

We rode on Dumbo too. Adam and I rode together, Mom and Rachel, and...Dad and Jeff. Hilarious.

and then...

Halloween Pumpkins

Jeff and I got a big and little pumpkin this year, so we decided to fit the carvings with the pumpkin sizes; We made Sully and Mike Wazowski from Monster's Inc. They turned out pretty cute :)
