Thanksgiving in Utah

Before we left for Utah Austin had his preschool Thanksgiving party. He was so proud of his little hat (and devastated he forgot to bring it to Utah.)

Austin also made this "thankful turkey" at school. I don't know where the dogs and dog bones came from. He must have been scraping the bottom of the barrel there.
We stopped by the Japenese gardens in on their free day before we left for Utah. The fall colors looked gorgeous!
Isabelle made one of these for me and Rob on the spur of the moment one day. She made paper sandwiches for us. Isn't she a sweetheart?!!
I found this fun candy house/restaurant in Portland and took Austy there.

We treated Wendy's family to some malts.
Rob and his brother Mike got to go to a BYU game while we were in Utah.On the way there it started snowing and Robert said, "Look Mom, it's raining snow!!" I guess it shows what weather we have the most of!We went to Classic with Wendy. They had skating, bounce houses, and nerf ball room. It was so fun. Plus, we could roller skate with strollers and scooters!Austin was so brave to go so high in the bounce houses.Even Talia got into it.We got to play with wiggle cars at Aunt Diana's.
We had fun at Mom's for Thanksgiving.

Little Chloe, (on the far right) kept running around saying, "I'm Ahora!" I think she meant to say "I'm Aurora."
This is me and my sister Katie with her little boy Andrew. He is two months younger than Talia.This is Rob's brother Mike with his son Davis. He was born within two weeks of Talia.
We had a cousin sleepover. Austin and Heather got along so well!Then we went to the Children's Museum in Salt Lake. Libby had me do all the girl's hair matching.Talia took her first steps here in Utah!! She took four at the children's museum. :)
I got to see my cute sister Emily.

Thanksgiving in Utah turned out to be just brilliant. The happy faces of kids are everything to me. Even I took my kids to a carnival at one of the local event locations on last weekend. The event was amazing and the kiddos were excited to see fun people in the costumes and the colorful ambience over there.
