Thanksgiving in Arizona

We celebrated Thanksgiving in Arizona this year, with Jason's family... All 48 of us! It is the first time we have all been together in years, and it was such a blast. Jason's sister has a beautiful home that accommodated all of us, so we spent the week chatting, playing games, and eating all kinds of yummy food. Jason played in the Turkey Bowl, and we cheered him on. The weather was gorgeous so we played, and even had our Thanksgiving feast, outside. There were 28 kids running around, so I basically didn't see my three all week. It was great. =)

A few pictures from our week... It was seriously such a fun Thanksgiving. We can't wait for next year!

More Wedding Fun!

My youngest sister, Tara, was married on November 20 in the Salt Lake Temple. The wedding was beautiful, and it was so good to see family again. Here are some pictures from the big event...

The kids at the airport. I once stated on this blog that the portrait studio is the most stressful place on earth. I changed my mind...the airport with three kids takes the number one spot for sure:

Ready to Go!

Tomorrow, we fly to Utah for my sister's wedding. We'll be in Utah for a week, and then we are driving to Arizona for a Davis Family Reunion. We'll be there for another week. Jason is excited, the kids are excited, and I'm... totally stressed out. I seriously have like 12 lists going. Lists are the only thing that keep me sane. Joshua decided to make a packing list of his own. It includes all the most important things he'll need... translation: legos, games, toothbrush, clothes, shoes, fruit snacks, Olivia, and toys.

I'm so glad he has agreed to take his little partner-in-crime with him. =)

He's a Crawler!

Our little Ethan is a crawler now. This means he is into EVERYTHING! Nothing is safe. All day long I hear the words, "Mom, Ethan has something in his mouth!" Just yesterday, I found him chewing on the following: legos, wrappers, the remote, a cracker he found under Joshua's bed (gross!), and a page he ripped from the kid's Book of Mormon... Fortunately for him, Ethan is so cute that we can't be mad at him for even a second. Love that boy!

Three and a Half!

We celebrated Olivia's half-birthday this week. She chose pineapple pizza for dinner, and she was so excited to help make her special half-cake. We love our little princess. Happy half-birthday Livi!!
