This year I wanted to try and get our family pictures with all the pretty fall colors and leaves and before the snow came. Well we were able to get them done before too much snow fell, however because of timing issues we were unable to catch the fall colors in our pictures. I was also a little disappointed because we were going to go to a couple different locations but with it being a bit chilly, the boys both having colds and runny noses, and them being cranky we were only able to do one location. Despite all of this, we still managed to get some really good pictures! Here are a few of my favorites :)

This year we packed up the car and headed down to Cedar City, UT to spend Thanksgiving with Chris' entire immediate family at his aunt's house. It was a bit overwhelming in that there were 29, yes 29 PEOPLE staying in the same house for 3 days!!! It was crazy, but fun all the same. The boys had an absolute blast having SO many kids to play with everyday, all day! Thanksgiving Dinner was so delicious, including all the different flavored pies we had! Most of the boys and kids went out in the morning for the Turkey Bowl...which didn't last long for Parker or Tyler because of the wind, but I think everyone else had fun. We played a lot of games, watch a few movies, cooked and just enjoyed catching up with everyone!! Thank you so much Aunt Heather and Uncle Dave for letting us ALL come and invade your house!!
Parker liked playing when he could have the ball, but there were a few times when he tried to run for it to pick it up and someone got there first and snagged it, which made him sad and he would just walk away. This was his first big game that he has ever played, especially with so many people that it was hard for him to realize that he needed to let everyone play. I still think he had fun though! Even my nephew Kaydon and Tyler got to play too!! Kick it Parker!!! Tyler's turn to play with the ball! Story of his life...Big Brother ALWAYS getting to the ball first!! haha He was POOPED!!! It's not very often that you see Parker go lay on the couch or chair and have to fight to stay awake, he's usually always go, Go, GO! We were just about ready to eat our Thanksgiving lunch/dinner, or I would have put him down for a nap. (Wish I would have because when we put him down after we ate, he had perked back up and didn't end up sleeping...little stinker!) Friday afternoon we went out and took family pictures...it's been A LONG time since we have had the whole family together! It's only gonna get bigger!!! Maria & Jeff and their adorable little boy, Kaydon Valerie & Nathan and their cute and hilarious girls, Ella, Lizzy, Sammy & Rachel!
