Temple Square Lights

The weekend after Thanksgiving we went to Temple Square to see the lights. Aunt Becca met up with us there. It was cold and crowded, but also beautiful and fun to be together. I love having our cool wagon. Claire and Everett were both able to cuddle up in it with blankets and it was so funny seeing people's expressions when we passed by. They either thought it was funny, cute or smart, not exactly sure what but they all were smiles. :)

Our Thanksgiving was pretty low key. Scott played some football that morning and we met up with him at his brother's house. Scott only had a couple hours with us all before he had to go to work, missing Thanksgiving dinner. We were sad to see him go, but we are grateful for all his hard work. Aunt Becca put together a fun craft for the kids. They loved making their colorful turkeys, and their cousin Tasha helped them make some candy turkeys as well. We ate a wonderful dinner and kids had lots of fun playing with their cousins. :)

7 Years and Family Pictures

For our 7th wedding anniversary we dropped off the kids with family and went for a drive down memory lane. We couldn't do much, with it being Sunday, but we ended at the sports park in Spanish Fork. We had a little picnic and went for a walk on the path. It was so beautiful we decided we needed to come back the next weekend for family pictures. :)

Pictures went pretty well this year. We picked a pretty nice day, it wasn't freezing like last year. :) We brought along Bounce (Everett's monkey friend) and he was definitely the right prop to bring some smiles. I took pictures of Everett first and started with Claire before quickly realizing she needed to go potty. We ran over to the bathrooms only to find out they were already closed for the winter. Not wanting an accident in her clean, new clothes or wanting to cut our pictures short we talked her into peeing on a tree, out in nature style. She agreed and it was a success. No accidents, and we were able to finish pictures. It was pretty funny though. :) Sherry was able to come and take a few family pictures of all of us. I had tried to set up the camera on a tripod to take some of just Scott and I but it wasn't working too well, so I was grateful for the help. I love how they turned out this year! :)
