A Birthday, Thanksgiving, Family Fun and Babysitting

Kevin and I had a great and fun filled Thanksgiving week! It started off with Kevin's birthday on Tuesday the 24th. I had to be to work early so I woke him up at about 4:45 in the morning to give him his gifts... kind of mean, but I knew that neither of us could/wanted to wait until later that night. I (along with my parents and grandma) got him a Benelli Super Nova. For those of you who are like me and do not speak "gun" the Super Nova is a pretty cool shot gun. I also got him a new hoodie. We also went out to dinner at The Fortune Cookie, a really good little Chinese place. From where I stood he had a pretty good birthday, and Kevin tells me that he did. Happy 24th birhday babe!!!

This year for Thanksgiving we were up in Heber with my family. It was our year to get together with my Mom's extended family. We rented a church and had about 65 people there. We had some great food and it was great to catch up with a lot of family that we don't get to see that often. After we ate and all the tables and chairs were cleaned up all the kids (including Kevin, Tyson and Heather) played a very physical game of dodge ball. I am so surprised that none of the little kids got knocked out after gettign hit with some really fast/hard balls. It was a pretty great day!
Friday we went shooting. Kevin had a great time shooting his new gun and Spencer McCall and Garrett did a great job! I had fun launching the clay piceons for them to shoot at. It was a pretty great day!

Saturday was fun as well. Of course we watched the BYU/Utah game... GO COUGARS!!! I am so happy that they were able to pull off the win! Kevin, however, was not so happy. Looking on the brightside for both situations, we made it through another rivalry game without killing each other, and that is definitely something that we can all be excited about! Saturday night Kevin and I were able to watch Emry. We got to play with her, feed her, change her and even put her to bed... I think that the practice we get with Emry will really help us out some day when we have a baby of our own. Emry is such a cute and happy baby, we love her so much and jump at any chance we get to see her!

All in all we had a great Thanksgiving break! Can't believe that Christmas is just arround the corner, this year has gone by so fast! We want all of you to know that we are thankful to have you in our lives and hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving!
