Thanksgiving 2011

I have no photos to prove our Thanksgiving Day adventure, but it was an adventure and something we'll always remember. Because I had to work that night, I asked Grammy if we could just go out to eat. We went to the Crazy Buffet and ate all the Chinese food our bellies could handle. Then we went to Papa and Grammy's and had homemade pie. Aniston spotted some horses on the way home that looked like they needed a few of Papa's apples, so her, Grammy and I fed them(Grammy actually gave them the apples and Aniston and I watched).

Friday morning we headed to St. George for some left over turkey dinner and a visit to the Jones family. The weather was so nice, that Chris brought the other woman in his life-the bike, and took her for a 3+ hour spin. Aniston played and played and played with her cousins.

Now we're all ready for Christmas! This year there is a little extra anticipation; Scott, Shelbi, Elsi, Stefen, and Bri will be coming for Christmas!
Aniston picked out her own tree and decor for her room, and she is so proud of it! She was a huge help with all the other Christmas decorations around the house, and she continues to move things around to get them in just the right spot.

snow angel

We absolutely adore this sweet girl. We're both wrapped tightly around her little finger, and we love every minute of it.
She has been extra sweet lately. Always giving us loves, telling us how much she loves us, telling us we're her best friends, and that we're super stars. I hope she knows we think the same of her, times 10.

We're pretty excited about the snow, at least Aniston and I are. Chris is a little worried about getting in his riding time, but that just means more trips to STG!
The first snow made that smile on Miss Aniston's face a little bigger! She wanted to skip school and play in the snow!

Grandma, Joc, and River came up just in time to play in the snow with Aniston! She was super excited to have River there to play with, and was sweet and let him wear some of her snow gear.

Little Missy has been a real trooper these days. All our running around wears her out too! I love, love, love that she still plays with her hair when she is falling asleep. The only downside is the knots!

We do sneak in as much fun as we can! Aniston picked out this fun game for family night that she got last Christmas. She followed directions perfectly!

Field Trip to the Fire Station

Aniston had a blast on this field trip. She was most excited about getting into the fire truck AND getting her own fireman's hat!

Grammy, Aniston, and I went to Gardner Village to see the witches just before Halloween. Aniston wanted her picture by every single witch and probably could have spent all day there. We had so much fun and loved spending time with Grammy!

primary program Oct. 30, 2011

Aniston was able to participate in her first primary program this year. She was really excited about it, and she did so well. She sang the songs really well and said her part perfectly! The theme was RED-read every day, so they gave each of the girls a red flower for their hair and pinned red boutonnieres on the boys. Aniston had her bow out of her hair and clipped on her dress(I'm assuming she wanted it there like the boys?!) before the program even started. Chris and I just had to laugh, because she had also taken her sweater off and looked like she was dressed for summer(bad parents!). The whole time I was watching her, I couldn't get over the fact that my daughter was in the primary program! She has grown up so fast, and so have I!

Halloween 2011

Halloween nigh t was perfect! Aniston got the hang of trick-or-treating and was running from door to door and loving every second of it. She would show us her candy after every house, and had the biggest smile on her face the whole time!!

Aniston was so excited to go with Tanner and Korbin!

Papa got into the Halloween spirit(unusual for him). The mask has been around forever and has scared many, so Papa pulled it out to scare the trick-or-treaters. He did a fabulous job, and has big plans for next year!

After trick-or-treating in our neighborhood, we headed to Papa and Grammy's for some fuel and more trick-or-treating.
Snow White and "Barbie". Aniston told me I looked like Barbie while we were out in my parent's neighborhood; bless her, she's a good self-esteem booster!

Snow White needed a lift from the "Handsome Prince"

That Grammy is the sweetest! Miss Aniston love love loves her!
We NEVER leave from a visit without making sure Papa gets a big squeeze from Aniston. She throws fits if she doesn't give everybody loves before she leaves!

Sunday Oct. 30th
We had Sunday dinner at Grammy and Papa's, ate spider cookies, and carved pumpkins!

This is the typical silly face these days.
