Thanksgiving

I can't believe it's already December 4. November flew by, but it ended on a good note. We went to Park City this year for Thanksgiving with my family and had a great time. We hoped there would be snow for skiing, but managed to get only a little while we were there. Ethan would go back in a heartbeat - hanging out with his cousins was the most fun he's had in a long time.

The U win was great - being the only person cheering for them that day was brutal but it ended in my favor. Ethan got in the spirit, I think I actually have a Ute on my hands. Turkey day was fantastic. The food was great. The next day we got a little snow so the kids could go sledding. It was like we were back in WI. We got to hang out with my extended family on Friday as well. We had a Turkey bowl, made some crafts, and of course, ate again.

Earlier in the week we hung out with some friends from the good ol' days of Provo. It's as if none of our friends have left Utah since college. There were so many to see and not enough days to see all of them. Maybe some of you will come to CA?...

The ride home is always a nightmare going south from Vegas. This time we stopped in St. George on Sunday night so we could drive on Monday instead. It probably saved us 4-5 hours in the car going 5 mph. My parents got caught in it and were not pleased.

This year, Christmas will be at home with the Brown's. Julie, Derek and Dean will all be coming down so we are excited to have everybody together. Now I just need to figure out what to buy everyone...

Josie! I have to say I miss your jaded, colorful, creative posts! Is life too bland in sunny CA? Is it too Utopian to find the humor to write about?
