It has been a few months since the last posting. Time goes so fast anymore. We had a wonderful opportunity to go to Utah for Thanksgiving. Kevin saved all his vacation so we could spend 9 days with his family. My sister and her family also live close by so we were able to spend some time with them as well. It was a very eventful week and we were able to have some late nights playing games and visiting. Thanksgiving day was spent with family and eating (lots!) of yummy food. We ended the day with the boys writing their Christmas wish list to Santa Clause. We assured them that Ernie (our families personal elf) would know we were at Grandma's and Grandpa's house and would get their letter to Santa. He was kind enough to get their letters and leave them a little gift. All three of them got their new ornament for the tree and Eli and Owen got new ear phones for the ipod and zune. They were pretty excited. Of course the next morning we had to venture out and do some early morning shopping. We didn't buy a lot, we both just enjoy being out in the crowds. Kevin's parents were very kind and volunteered to keep the kids for us. That made things a lot easier and enjoyable. We finished the week off just being with family and then headed home on Sunday. Vacations are fun, but it is always nice to be home and back on schedule.
