Holidays are Here!

Thanksgiving Spread! Yum!

We got so busy eating I forgot to take more pictures! But, here is one of that very darling (and very popular) little Eliza with my silly boys! Connor is wearing Grandpa's reading glasses...I have no idea why??

And now for CHRISTMAS!!
We went to see the lights on Temple Square--we were there the first night!

(A lighted nativity is behind them on the water--very cool!)

Eric, Britt, Gabe, Erin, Jed and Benny and Eliza-

Coleman and TJ-

Grandpa and Bridger-

The Sisters--Mindy, Erin, Melanie, Brittany and our beautiful Mom-I sure LOVE these women!

Grandma and her oldest grandsons-
Our darling little Eliza, and a bit of our darling Coleman!
Cute little handmade hat--thanks to Brittany!

We ran into our cousin Sarah, who is on the staff at Temple Square that oversees the fabulous exterior illumination! We all thanked her profusely, then took pictures with her, then got her autograph!! Thank you Sarah--the light display is amazing!!

What nice shots from Temple Square. I haven't seen the nativity on the water before. Looks beautiful. I think we are planning on Temple Square the night of the Cook's reception---since both are downtown.
Thanks for this year's preview, it got me excited!

What an absolute fun-filled weekend with your cute family! I love the pic with you, your sisters and your mom--you are all so beautiful!

Too bad we didn't run into you guys, we decided to go the second night instead... It looks like everyone had a great time! That's so great that you are so close to your family and sisters. I love the pictures!

Your Thanksgiving looked beautiful, Mel! And very yummy. The lights were fun, huh. Griff almost always takes me to do that after dinner for birthday. I just love it. It has been awhile since we have been down as a family though. I remember going to do that every year growing up. It is so fun!

WOW all those pictures were so pretty... from the food to the lights! :) That was so much fun - we should make it a tradition to go the first night!
