Getting Ready for Christmas. Yeepee!

We spent the weekend after Thanksgiving with my family in Cache Valley. We enjoyed delicious Thanksgiving leftovers (my mom is a great cook), stayed up LATE playing Monopoly, I ate one of my fav's-Costa Vida with my momma, while we watched a fantastic TV movie called "Love Comes Softly." I absolutely love watching a good movie with my mom, in the upstairs living room with dinner in front of us.
On Saturday me, Russ, Molly, Tom, Evelyn, Adam, and my dad went up to Idaho to cut down Christmas trees! The guys did the actual cutting, but we were all there for the adventure. There was actually quite a bit of snow for us to walk in, which was fun. While my dad and Adam were busy finding and cutting their trees, the rest of us got in a miniature snowball fight. We had a fun time!

A while ago I bought some great items from Michaels to make a wreath. (Michaels was one of my favorite stores this season) I thought it would be fun for me and my mom to make them together. When she was off work, we went to Michaels for things for her wreath. We found some great things! We made them on Sunday at Adam and Hillary's, while others were watching a movie. We had a good time! Here they are...
My new wreath is hanging on my door:)

Happy Thanksgiving

Russ and I spent Thanksgiving Day at his grandparent's house in Provo (Patsie and Papa). There was a lot of family there and we had a good time...and of course a lot of good food. I enjoy my Mother-in-law's family. Here are a few pics.

That evening Russ and I and his family went over to Bob and Dixie's to play the Wi. We ate treats (Bob raided the food storage and brought out a jar of mini candybars) and had a good time.
