Our {First} Thanksgiving

We get to have two Thanksgivings this year! 

We went up to northern Utah and had Thanksgiving with Jake's family.  We had a blast!  We hadn't been up for a while, so it was great to see everyone and get some Christmas shopping done.

We also got to see {New Moon} while we were up there!  Loved it!  I even got my drink in a souvenir New Moon cup.  I was making fun of myself.  But it made me happy so I got it!  Mary watched the girls while Jake and I went to the movie.  Thanks Mary!  

We had our Thanksgiving dinner at Alex & Mary's house.  It was perfect because they have a playroom so the kids all played with toys while the adults played games.  So fun!

Here are some pics from the dinner:

From left:  Jaclyn, Jake, Bekah, Kate, Mary, Emma, Alex and Barbra (Jake's mom)

Aunt Bekah holding Kate.  Mary looks beautiful in this pic!

Ellie and Emmy playing in Ellie's room.  These girls play so good together.  They are two peas in a pod!  We just need to live closer so they can play more!

Alex and Jacob.  The brown brothas!

Alex, Austin, Rachel and baby Mason.  He's 5 weeks younger than Kate and oh so cute!

Ellie, Emmy and Emma (that's right, it's a tongue twister.  And Emmy and Emma actually share the same birthday!  Ellie is two months older).  I told the girls a spider was going to get them so they'd all look at me.  So they are screaming :)

Now bring on Thanksgiving dinner #2!
