Thanksgiving on the Farm

Every year we like to take off to Arco for the Thanksgiving festivities. Alex's Mom does such a wonderful job with the meal I just can't resist taking the three hour drive to eat it! We arrived on Tuesday and had a pretty laid back evening. The next day everyone else arrived. We had all kinds of yummy soups and finished the evening off with an amazing "Pie Pig Out" and "Planes Trains and Automobiles"! Thanksgiving day, was also very laid back, and we enjoyed the Turkey, Stuffing, Candy Yams, Mashed Potatoes, and home made rolls. While we were there Alex pulled the girls around on the sled. He also helped his Dad straw down the cattle and do other odds and ends of farm work. There were board games, football, movies, napping, shooting guns, and tons of fun conversation. Thankyou to Alex's parents for hosting such a big group! We had a blast!

Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, Pecan Pie, Two Coconut Cream Pies, Lemon Cream Pie, Banana Cream Pie and a Pumpkin Roll!


  1. Yum, Yum, wish we could have been there.

  2. First of all your kids are adorable! Secondly I have a favor to ask you. Will your family be attending the Christmas Party on the 5th? I've been asked to round up little girls in the ward who would be interested in playing dolls in the Christmas program. Both your girls could do it all they would need to do is wear a pretty frilly dress (Or whatever you have) To the party and when it's their turn stand up on stage and rock back and forth and blink their eyes like a doll. Pretty simple. Anyway let me know what you think! Thanks Anna
