Thanksgiving Holiday...

Thanksgiving this year was really great!! Being in the valley this weekend, made it one of the best one's yet!

We drove down late Wednesday night...(traffic was crazy) but as we drove into the Valley, we realized how much we missed the smell of desert rain and wet sage! I know it sounds crazy but there is nothing better then the smell of the Valley after a good rain!!! We took advantage of the good riding weather, and spent the whole weekend on Rhino's! Mike and Danielle joined us for a night ride on Saturday that was a lot of fun!

Our Thanksgiving Day was really good! Everyone chipped in this year to help cook...the boy's were in charge of shelling pomegranate's (which I think should be a new tradition) and all of us girls helped my Mom with everything else! Each year, we have to say things we are grateful for at the table and this year it made me realize how blessed I really am... to be in such a great family, who supports and cares for all of us, to be married to a wonderful husband, who works so hard to provide for the 2 of us and who honors his priesthood and strives to be better everyday, having the gospel in our lives and being sealed as a family, and just being able to enjoy the small things in our daily lives!

Friday, my Dad took advantage of the great sales at Best Buy and bought a really nice 40" LCD TV for $800 dollars! He already has enough TVs but for some reason he NEVER can pass up a good "TV" deal lately! Jody and I spent the day in Vegas as well... We did some good shopping at Time Square and spent some time with great friends we hadn't seen in a long time!
Here are some pictures from our weekend...I forgot our camera this time, but we were able to take a few!

Hope every one's Thanksgiving was as good as ours was!!!!!!

Thanksgiving Dinner with some of us....

My Dad's great buy....

So, every time I go home, my Dad asks me to buzz his hair! My Mom keeps talking him out of it because she thinks he has great hair! He thought long and hard about doing it all day and finally decided to go for it! My mom walked in at this point and about FREAKED!!! It was good for her and he actually looks okay with a buzz!

Jody and I on the Rhino....

He actually let me drive surprisingly

Jody on the Rhino...He LOVES his dirt bike but is actually starting to consider for the first time, that maybe we need one since the Dirt Bike is only fun for him, and this is great for the 2 of us! We'll see if I can fully convert him over...
