Thanksgiving

It is about time I posted about our Thanksgiving! We got together with my ENTIRE family for Thanksgiving! We haven't all been together in almost five years!!! We had SOOO much fun! We went to Riverton Wyoming and stayed at my brothers house. We played games (the newlywed game...so fun but it was kind of sad that the newest married couple won!) we ate A LOT, talked, went on a hike, toured the town, went swimming, had a talent show, watched the BYU/UTAH game, played with beads, exchanged Christmas gifts and just enjoyed being together. The only thing I didn't do was take enough pictures, but here are a few:



All the grandkids! (17)


We hiked to this crazy river that goes through those caves and ends up on the other side of the road!


The whole family. :)


Family love.



Grandma and Grandpa with all the grand kids


The three two year olds.


Three things I am SO thankful for!!


Aw, tender moment with Uncle Bart!


Watching the BYU/Utah Game!!!


Grandma and Grandpa handing out Christmas gifts to the grand kids.


For the last three years my Mom (and Dad) have been working on a history book of my Mom side of the family and they finished it right in time for Christmas!!! It is over 500 pages! I am so proud of them for doing this! What an amazing gift! I am so grateful for their hard work, what an amazing thing to have my families life stories all right at my fingertips!
Thanks Mom and Dad!


On the way home we stopped at Martin's Cove. It was so neat to be there. It had an amazing spirit there. We weren't able to walk to the actual cove but we stopped in at the visitors center. The missionary that was there spoke of the sacredness of the cove. What a special experience.

There are so many things I am thankful for this year I could go on and on but I am so thankful for the gospel in my life, my wonderful husband, my sweet kids, all of my family, a good job, and great friends. :)

We are truly blessed.

Hey! That's sinks canyon, right. That is in Lander where Travis grew up. Lander is his hometown. (About 20 minutes from Riverton.)

Love your new family pic! So..sooo cute! That is so neat that you were ALL able to be there. It get's so hard when you all have your own families. It's been over 4years since all of mine have been together and it's probably going to be alot longer.

Well, probably not cuz I'm gonna have the baby at the end of January. Sad, huh? I would have loved a roommate reunion. But maybe another time. Miss you too! Your girls are so cute!!!
