Thanksgiving Weekend

My family came down to Utah for the Thanksgiving break and it was so fun! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at my in-laws house, shopped, rode horses, saw the lights at Temple Square, attended the infamous Festival of Lights in Spanish Fork, and had one crazy game of Monopoly! We also had a special guest of honor, the BFF Brittani! I hadn't seen her since she has been home from her mission, and it was so great to spend some quality time with her! Thanksgiving went by way too fast, now I am counting down the days until we get to go to Washington for Christmas Break!

Good thing we had Britt with us to be our Tour Guide through SLC. This picture was taken on the TRAX, gotta love the public transportation system ( just so you know I am a total regular riding the UTA these days- funny) We all look so happy in that pic- the bus started to move unexpectedly right when the picture was snapped- priceless!

The kids loved riding horses and running around out in the fields with them. Collin kept turning to me and saying, "I thought these horses were tamed Kari!" he had a little bit of a rough ride on Little Bug.

And of course, I have to add this picture in just for good measure. My sisters are the bomb, seriously.

You have a couple of awesome sisters. I have heard of footie jammies for grown-ups, and now I have seen them. Kendall has gotten taller since I last saw her - she used to be shorter than Carmen! Glad you were able to have a fun holiday.

You had an awesome Thanksgiving!!And the picture of Carmen and Kendall cracked me up....I always saw those really "big" footed jammies and thought, "that would be funny to try one of those on" so thanks to carmen and kendall now I don't have to!:) Oh, and the lights down a SLC are awesome! It reminds me of a time that me and Camille we dropped off down there and we had to get on the tram and we were such scared little 'farm' girls because we had NO IDEA what we were doing! Good memories though! I showed my little "horse lover" (the girls,especially lexi) the picture of the horse and she recognized who Collin was and then it started a whole story about the kittens at your house!:) Fun times...sorry about such the long comment!
