Our first precious!

We set up our Christmas decorations and it's so great! I love the holidays (who doesn't?!) and it's so exciting to share it all with Dan and have our own place to decorate and enjoy. We have a cute little tree and I've been collecting Christmas decor over the past few months! So I busted it all out and I love it! Of course I still need a few more things to finish up, but it looks great!
Here is Dan setting up the tree.
Dan was watching a Jazz game, so ignore D Will on the screen. :)

For some reason Dan thought it was really funny to wrap 66 feet of beads around his neck like a necklace. He's a nut.

Thanksgiving Day!

Thanksgiving was a great day for us. We are lucky to live close to both of our families so we were able to spend time with both of them. Dan got up and played football all morning with some of our high school friends. Apparently they needed some black stuff under their eyes in order to play! For dinner, we went to the first round at Danny's aunt and uncles beautiful house in North Salt Lake. It was gorgeous and the food was of course delicious!
There were some fun toys for the kids to play with. Sarah loved the karaoke and she sang "I never knew" over and over while Addy played on the keyboard. It was so cute!
They also had this weird/cool horse that was freakily lifelike! It moved its head and tail and it's mouth moved when you gave it food. The kids were scard at first then they couldn't get enough of it! They were climbing on it and feeding it and I loved watching them.
After we left Curt and Julie's house, we went to our close family friends' house, the Thomases. They are basically family and since we don't have family around here, we always do the holidays with them. Here are the guys snoozing with football on. How typical :)

Here I am with my cute sister and Courtney. Steph was able to come home for Thanksgiving this year (last year she was gone with basketball) so I loved seeing her!

It was a great holiday and a nice break from work and school. I ventured out for some shopping on Friday (not until about 10am though) and it wasn't too bad at all. I got some great deals and just finished most of my shopping! We are so blessed and thankful for many things. Lately I've been trying to stop and look around and I realize just how many blessings I have. It's amazing and I'm so grateful for my family, friends, school, job, and of course my husband!
