since christmas is less than three weeks away, i decided i should probably post about our thanksgiving break! goodness time flies! we had a WONDERFUL break. it was much needed for sure. wednesday afternoon (after we slept in...) we headed up to layton to the mckinley residence. we hung out with mom and dad, and then around ten, mom and i went to watch danny and aaron play soccer with a bunch of their friends! they both looked SO good out there! thanksgiving day was full of TONS of yummy food! we hung out with all the family, played with fin's new dog luna, and had a big ole' volleyball game in the front yard. (the girls totally beat the boys) danny and i gave aaron some HULK hands for his birthday, and everyone had a fun time playing with those. we finished the night by playing ticket to ride, and watching kung fu panda.

friday morning we woke up early...and drove up to REXBURG, IDAHO! woot woot. my cousin amanda received her endowments at the rexburg temple. talk about beautiful. it was so much fun to go to the temple that i had seen under construction while attending school at BYU-I. lots of the family was able to be there and it was a wonderful session. after that, i gave danny a tour of my old stomping grounds! we drove past kensington #304, walked through the weight room where i used to work, and through "the gardens." it was such a blast being there with my HUSBAND! i love that place...and it was even about 40 degrees! that's like summer in rexburg!
the rest of the day we hung out at grandma george's with the rest of the fam--mike, bekah, and the girls even came up! we had a big family dinner and played nerts and speed scrabble!! so much fun! we also had a big family basketball game at the church with all of the cousins.
saturday was eventful as well. we woke up early and headed off to idaho falls to attend the sealing of richie and sarah bindrup. what an awesome event!! we love those two and they looked happier than ever! danny's parents came up for the sealing and after they left we went to their luncheon at johnny carino's. we stopped and saw linds at great harvest and then headed back to rigby until about 8 when we went to their reception. we're so excited for those two, and were so glad to be a part of their special day.
all in all, it was a wonderful weekend and a fun holiday! next up: christmas!!
