Happy Turkey 2012!


Thanksgiving day was wonderful! I had prepared as much as I could the day before so that Thanksgiving day would be a lot more relaxed and less crazy. + Jon cooks the turkey so that takes a lot of the headed ache away.  

Logan cannot stand me cooking onions so he always put on his swim goggles, 
and that makes him feel a whole lot better.

Jon dropping the turkey!

Our friends Alena and Dan Morgan came to visit from Missouri.
Alena making some mighty good Cheese Balls!

The boys and Kiki tending the turkey

 Alena and me cooking away!

We started out our meal with a delicious butternut squash soup

 Jon showing off his plate filled with scrumptious-ness!

 After thanksgiving dinner we invited all of friends for a thanksgiving desert pot luck and games.  That was a lot of fun! We played so Dance Dance Revolution (old school, I know but still lots of fun!), chatted, and relaxed in front of one of my holiday favorites "The Elf."

Joseph and Logan battling it out. Joseph is actually really good at DDR.

Dan brought his table and fixed us all up! 
(He is in med school and has a lot of interest in osteopathy)

Kia Ora and her best bud Dan, or Dan Dan as she calls him.
She loves him so much. 

Elf Time!

Today was truly a special day, and it made me so grateful for all we have...; this awesome cute little home we have, the delicious food that filled our bellies, the amazing friends we have, our wonderful family, the savior, and his gospel and teachings, and so much more...
