For Thanksgiving this year, we got to see both sides of the family! First we spent the night in Henderson which is just outside of Las Vegas. Grandma Pat drove from Colorado and Eric's brother Chris and his girlfriend Reyna cooked a yummy meal. We did make a short trip to Circus Circus and saw a beautiful cactus garden that was decorated with Christmas lights. It was good to catch up with family but we wish we could of spent more time with them. Next, we headed up to St George, Utah where my parents have a second home. Both of my brothers and their families were able to come down also. The kids loved to see their cousins, climb on the red rock, go swimming,and have a second Thanksgiving dinner. We are spoiled!

It was a little weird when it was time to come home and we left in the opposite direction! I truly love the Arizona weather and I can't imagine going back to the yucky snow. We will adventure all the way up to Cache Valley for a whole week after Christmas. The kids are looking forward to going snowboarding, sledding, seeing old friends and neighbors, and spending time with family. Life is good!
