Phewwww!!




I think I can finally catch my breath after thanksgiving and hosting Bunko this week,so I can finally do a post. Wow we really had a great time on thanksgiving. We were planning on driving up on wednesday but my husband decided is was not happening with these 3 rugrats so we bought tickets to fly up. We didnt tell anyone so we showed up on Kendrias doorstep and surprised them! It was fun. I have never gone shopping on Black friday before(super early that is) I usually go later in the day. But Shaunasey wanted to go to the Park city outlets so we were going and we called and found out they opened doors at midnight. So we were all pumped up to go so we all went to sleep at 8:30 to wake up at 10:00 and drive an hour to get there when doors opened. It was me,Emily,Sha and Kendria and 2 nursing babies. Oh yea did I mention it was FREEEEEZING!!! Seriously like 15 degrees outside. So we shopped around for a couple of hours and finally went home at 4:30.Crazy I know but I havent stayed up like that since Post high school days. It was so fun. All the grand kids did great together, nine kids under 6 in one house , not too bad. Kendrias house made a great hotel! We visited my sister Trisha and that was fun as well but we didnt get very much time with her which I regret but hopefully we will see them soon!Oh yea we went to the temple and saw the lights and had hot cocoa and made some great memories. Good times! Flying was a breeze,soooo worth it to not have any money for christmas presents!! The kids did great ,I think this is the perfect size family for traveling. I hosted Bunklast night and it was great and I think everyone really enjoyed the food and prizes. Im so glad its over. Now I can focus on all the other stuff going on!

What a fun trip. It really kills me to stay up late now. I really can't pull late nights anymore without having a terrible next day. Cute family!
