November Stuff

November, as usual, has been a busy month. Unfortunately, I haven't had my camera out much...I don't know whats wrong with me!!
My beautiful sister-in-law, Jen's baby shower was this month. The shower was beautiful and we had lots of yummy food. I am so excited for her and TJ to be having a sweet little baby first nephew! I crocheted the cutest little baby blanket for him. I think this is my most favorite blanket I have made yet!And of course, Thanksgiving was this week. My bro-in-law and sister-in-law were in town to celebrate so I was able to spend lots of time with them this week. I love to be able to spend time with them and their 4 beautiful girls! For whatever reason, I never had my camera out the whole time they were here...sad day for me! But we had a great time with them and were able to enjoy 2 fabulous Thanksgiving feasts! (And yes, one more tomorrow!) I just love this time of year and being able to spend time with loved ones.
Also this month, my little bro and his fiancee went through the temple. It was so nice to be in the temple with my family and to be there with Sam and Robin. They are getting married in just 2 weeks! I'm so excited to have Robin be a part of my family.

Birthday and pumpkins

Once again, I know I am overdue! Last month I celebrated my 26th birthday. Birthdays now seem to last for about a month because I get to celebrate with all of my family and it gets so spread out. Chris and I always go to Texas Roadhouse for my bday and for the last few years our friends Katie and Jeff have joined us with their 2 sweet kiddos. The food was delicious and I definitely over-indulged!
This is Chris and I in the car waiting for Katie and Jeff. Chris gets so annoyed with me and the camera! But I don't really mind :) Here is Trevor and his super cute "say cheese" smile!
And here he is pretending to not hear me saying, "say cheese!"
Here I am on the birthday saddle with the kids. They decided they needed a turn if I was getting a turn on it.

And me by myself. I think Chris's hand was in the way of the flash but you still get the idea. (I know these pictures are all out of order but I don't care enough to fix it.)

I'm making a totally goofy face but I was laughing pretty hard on the saddle.

Here's the whole gang! I can't get enough of that cheese face!

Me and my sexy hub!
Katie and Jeff
Me and the cutie, Bella!
The following Sunday I went to my parents house to celebrate. My oldest brother and I share a birthday and my sisters birthday is just 2 days after ours. Its almost a holiday in our family so we celebrate with turkey dinner and all the fixins! It was a super yummy dinner and of course a great time. I didn't get a ton of pictures that night but here are a few.
We were playing with the timer on my camera and got a few pretty funny ones. Here's a prime example!
This wasn't the timer but I have to say its one of my new all time favs!

This needs no words!

He doesn't always cooperate with the camera but he was on this day. I just love this guy!
I don't know why there aren't more of my fam, but I promise they were there! I uploaded these from a different computer about a week ago so I must have missed a few of them. Oops! Maybe I will add a few more later.

The next week we carved pumpkins with Chris's family and had a great time. Here they are all lit up.

Doesn't Jen have such a cute pregger belly?! Love it!

I also celebrated my birthday this past weekend with my mom-in-law, Laurie and Jen and TJ and didn't get any pictures. It was such a great time though and again, delicious food! Thank you everyone who made my birthday so great! I'm so lucky to have such amazing family and friends. I don't know what I would do without all of them. I love you all so much!
