Our Little Thanksgiving Weekend

This Thanksgiving was our first one together at our house. We have always gone to either Ty's parents or mine. But this upcoming weekend we are heading to Wyoming because my brother's coming home from his mission in Macon, GA. Since we will be up there in a week we decided to stay here and have our own little Thanksgiving. Tyler went and played in a Turkey bowl that morning and came back uninjured(luckily), feeling his age, and sad he doesn't have 4.4 forty speed anymore (which he never had). Instead of cooking a huge meal for two and dealing with all the mess and hassle, we decided we would try the unconventional eating out method for Thanksgiving dinner. It actually was great and we had a wonderful meal. That night we took Grace to the movie theater and watched Bolt. While Grace was slightly more interested in yelling hi at everyone and climbing up and down the theater stairs and playing with all the trim lights, she watched about half of the movie and we had alot of fun. Itwas a fun night and a great end to our first "solo" Thanksgiving.

As much as I loved not having to cook very much I totally envy you for having it all by your self. That is what I want to do for chrismas but I don't think we are brave enough to disappoint family. You'll have to let us know how bolt was. If we don't see you before have a very Merry Christmas

I tried calling the number you left on your message but you weren't there and I never saved your new number I just realized, but I thought I had. So why don't you give me a call so I can save the right one. How is your fam? Chris?
