For Thanksgiving this year, we were able to spend time with Lance's family.  It's a little difficult sometimes to try and spend as much time with every single family I have, so Lance and I have decided that we make it a point to spend the whole day with one family and then just trade off the other years.  To start off the morning we went down by Utah lake to go shooting.  All the boys brought their guns, clay pigeons and ammo.
Of course, dinner was amazing!  I'm pretty sure I was in a food coma for about an hour afterward.
It didn't help being sick and not eating for 2 whole days before Thanksgiving, then to "all-a-sudden" have an appetite for everything in sight.
I ended up making lunch lady peanut butter bars and pumpkin cheesecake pies for my dessert.  They were both experimental recipes and I was pleasantly surprised with both :)  Jenny made yummy apple pies and Tori made both a chocolate pie and a cheesecake, cake.
Once we let our food settle, we all hit the 8 o'clock Walmart black friday madness.  It was a bit ridiculous, but entertaining none-the-less.  As if Walmart wasn't enough we decided Target would be a good choice afterward.  It was funny seeing the boys get all hyped up and cheer on the crazy shoppers.
I'm glad we were able to spend the Thanksgiving weekend with Lance's family.
Since we already did the black friday deal Thursday night, Friday we Lance and his brothers helped Tim and Kamie move out of their apartment.  I felt a little useless to help but at least Miss K was cheering on the movers the entire time!
I guess maybe I did do a little black friday shopping?  Kind of.
It wasn't really a black friday deal, but I thought it was a good deal:)
We bought our crib and I absolutely love it!
I'm hoping it is only as pretty in person as it was online!
Lance and I spent Saturday morning up in Wolf Creek cutting down our Christmas tree!  We actually found 3 trees that we liked and just had to decide which one would be best!
Hopefully we made a good pick!
I wanted to get home quickly so that I could start setting up Christmas decorations (the small amount that I have).  I always seem to forget how long it takes me to put lights on the tree.  This year I feel like our tree looks like a Dr. Seuss tree and I'm happy with it!
As much as I miss the huge, bushy, prelit, stack the top on the bottom kind of tree, I really do enjoy going with Lance to find "the perfect tree".  I told him that next year we are going to work hard for our tree. Hike our butts deep into the mountains to get it.
He just rolled his eyes, he knows he loves me :)
