thanksgiving in show low, az

we spent thanksgiving with jason's family this year in a cabin in show low, az. there were kids everywhere. 27, to be exact. i think the adults felt a little out numbered at times. but it was fun to see all the cousins together having a good time.

we played tennis, watched lots of modern family, played games, my kids cheeks turned red as they always do when the weather gets dry and cold (i call them my little santa clause babies), drank hot chocolate, made some food crafts, took naps, ate lots of food, watched some football, jack tagged the forest, we had no bedtimes and pretty much did whatever sounded good at the time. it was chill and low key. it was also nice to be cold :) (except in the middle of the night when an extra blanket would've come in handy)

thanksgiving dinner was wonderful and delicious and of course, filling. jack was so funny. the night before thanksgiving he was so excited that he couldn't fall asleep. he kept telling me that he couldn't wait until he got to eat turkey and mash potatoes and pumpkin pie. he seemed just as excited for thanksgiving as he is on christmas eve. strange kid.

we are so thankful that we got to spend thanksgiving with our family. we are so thankful for each other and for our knowledge of an eternal family. we are most thankful for a loving heavenly father and for his plan for us. it's such a great time of year and it's always nice to sit and reflect on all the things that we are thankful for. (because there are so many.....)
