This year we spent Thanksgiving with Paige's Mom. We had a great time! It was very low key - Paige's brother Mike, and Sister-in-law Summer came down from Salt Lake -and they are always a blast! Then it was just her brother Garrett and sister Aubrey. It was fun!

On Thanksgiving night, Nick's brothers 4 kids, Shakell 9, Aryale 7, Alyssa 4, Gus 3, came to stay with us for a few days! It was so fun! Thursday night we made gingerbread houses, and watched a movie.

Friday we went shopping! In the afternoon Paige took Shakell and Aryale shopping! They were so excited to go to a mall! Then we all met up at McDonald's! Cynthia, Nick's sister from Vegas, stopped by with her 4 kids on their way to Minersville! It was good to see them. Friday Night we took the kids to look at Christmas Lights - We went to a house in Paige's old neighborhood - They go all out! It was fun for the kids to see all the lights - then we went to the Temple for the Nativity. Gus just 'had to pet' the stable animals!

Saturday we went swimming at Sand Hollow. We took our neighbor Braxton (5) - We had a lot of fun - but it was very busy with just us and 5 kids! Shakell was such a help - all of the kids love the big slide - even Gus! They are all quite the swimmers!

When we got home we put up the Christmas Tree, and decorated our house! The kids loved it! Aryale was Paige's biggest helper! Then we ordered Pizza and watched a Christmas movie!

It was so fun to spend time with them! We had a blast! We love all of our nieces and nephews - and it is so fun to have them come stay with us!

We hope all of you had a great Thanksgiving as well!
