Thanksgiving


This year we spent Thanksgiving in St. George. We were glad that we all made it as Easton & I headed out a few days early with Scott coming the day before Thanksgiving. We all experienced delays in Atlanta because of the lovely fog. All the pain of traveling was worth it for the great times had with the family during the week. I love my family and love to be in St. George with them.

The ENTIRE family was home including 2 of my sister's friends from Provo who are a blast. We all payed games, ate, watched movies, ate, watched BYU win over Utah, ate, and ate some more. Thanks to all of the great cooking and Grandma Frei's homemade pies I'm sure I have gained 10 pounds. :) Easton LOVED playing with his cousin AnnDee! I think we are going to include "the shadow" as one of his many nicknames. They did everything together. My sister KayDee's birthday was Saturday and we got to help her husband Chris plan a surprise candle light dinner and party with all the fam. It really turned out great and KayDee, for once, was finally surprised on her birthday (no more complaining Kayd).

Having been away from "home" for over 3 weeks now I am realizing all the little things that I am thankful for that we had there. Easy access to church, and temples. Desertet & Seagull Book. No smoking in public places. A garage that both cars and all our stuff could fit in. But mostly our good friends that lived by us. It's great to know you can count on people to help you out when you are in a bind or need a listening ear. To take a last minute trip to the park to calm a crazy kid. To get together and play games and act like we are 16 again. To hold your hand and watch you cry as you get a nail pulled out of your foot. :) (I had to put that one in.) We love you and miss you guys a ton!

Now stop that, you totally made my eyes start to tear up! We miss you tons too! I'm still waiting for these younger babies to grow up a little to play with Brooklyn. We miss Easton and you, especially on these colds days of being stuck in the house!

Every time I see your house, I wonder what you guys are up to. Then I remember you moved. That stinks. :)

Jessica, my fellow east coaster. It takes some getting use too in fact, I'm still trying to find my direction by looking to the mountains that are completely non-exsistant out here. South Carolina has some great beaches. We were there this last summer. Let us know if you ever head into the DC area. Shelli
