Thanksgiving

This year for Thanksgiving we decided not to go to California and instead just spent the Holiday at home in our cozy apartment. Brad had to work on Wednesday and by the time we looked up flights it was just too expensive, but in the end it all worked out. I called my best friend and her husband and told them to come down from Logan to spend the day with us. We love the Wrights!

We have so many things to be grateful for and I love this time of year and how it reminds us of all our blessings. This year we are most grateful for our happy, healthy little son. He has brought so much joy into our lives!

We started Thanksgiving out right by doing a little Cross fit. Brad joined a gym a couple months ago and has since gotten me addicted. They had a "free" day on Thanksgiving so Kara came with us! Nothing like burning off that pumpkin pie with wall balls and box jumps....

              

After our workout it was cooking time. But not until we downed a whole cheese ball I had made the night before. That's a good post-workout meal, right? Mmmmm


I used a recipe from allrecipes to bake the turkey and it turned out perfect. It was way easier than I thought it would be and way more delicious too:). Win win. All the other food was spot on too.

 

We had such a good time all cooking together while watching episodes of Modern Family...My idea of the perfect day.




After over 3 years of marriage we finally used the china that Brad's grandma gave us for our wedding.  It was the perfect event for it's debut! 


When it was finally time to eat we ate, and ate, and ate to our hearts content. Even Caleb got to play with a roll since he refuses to eat anything that is not baby cereal or milk...



Oh, and you can't forget the pies. 1 pie per couple? Yes, please.


After dinner we went up to Macy's to check out the Black Friday deals and got some sweet new towels. Booya

On Friday I spent the day working and Brad spent the day studying, but we took a break to go downtown and see the christmas lights at temple square. My favorite:). 



The rest of the weekend was spent resting, eating leftovers, and doing lots of this:


It was the perfect Holiday. Now time for Christmas!
