Thanksgiving Weekend

What a fun-filled Thanksgiving weekend we had! We had Thanksgiving dinner with the Dorius's, Nathan's grandma, and Tanya's mom. The Sharp's were supposed to be there as well but they had kids with the stomach flu so they chose to stay home. All the food was delicious and we enjoyed each others company.
Friday, we met up with the Dorius's again for a movie at The Gateway in Salt Lake. Tanya and I took the little ones to see Bolt which was very cute and Jeff and Nathan took the older ones to see Twilight. there were mixed feelings on that show. Nathan surprised Dallin and Jeffrey with some great seats to the Jazz vs. Kings game right after the movie. They had a blast there by themselves. The rest of us raced home after the show because we had special guests coming to spend the rest of the weekend with us.
Mena and Mom decided to take a quick trip back to see us. They brought Aiden, Stone and Claire along with them. All the kids had a good time being together again. Mom took those of us who were awake early enough Saturday morning to a yummy place for breakfast where we had huge scones and huge cinnamon rolls. The scones were longer than the plates and Emma's cinnamon roll was the size of her entire plate. Later, Mom and Mena and I had fun hitting up the good sales in the mall. In the evening we went to The Garden Room in the Joseph Smith Building for dinner and after that went to see the Salt Lake Symphonic Choir in the Tabernacle on Temple Square. We all had a good time together and hopefully the next time they come it will be for a longer visit.

I just thought this was a cute picture. How lucky they are to always have each other.

Of course my favorite place to take a picture. I love that I can visit the Salt Lake Temple where we were married more often now.
We were just taking pictures because the lights on Temple square were so beautiful

sorry we couldn't make Thanksgiving. It looks like you had a really nice time. We'll have to get together around Christmas or New Years.
