We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday last week! The truth is, though, that I was a TOTAL slacker on taking pictures. So you'll get a couple random ones taken with my iPhone. Sorry! But, more importantly, I just wanted to write about what we did so I can remember (blog = journal ... remember?). And since most of the photos are Instagram photos anyway, I'm just going to include all of the ones I've taken recently up until today! :)
Saturday 11/17/12... another one of Charlie's new favorite activities. He loves to open up the cabinet door to the lazy susan where we keep all our food. So far, he hasn't been bad about pulling things out (except the one time he found the mini marshmallows and started eating them!) so I let him sit there and just turn it around and around.
I'm always so excited for Black Friday the next day, not so much because there are deals on things (definitely a perk!), but more-so because I get to go shopping with my sisters and then meet up with all the ladies for lunch at the Pizza Factory afterwards! Aren't we so cute? From L to R: Me, Grandma Deanna, Mical, Jill, and Meghan! Always a great time!
That night was our traditional see-the-lights-on-Temple-Square night! However, we were short in numbers this year since Mical had to go back to Vegas early, Russ was out of town so Jill (and therefore Trent) didn't come, Troy ususally does something else, and Trevor was feeling really sick! So, that left just me and Charlie and the whole Sonnenberg clan!
But it was still a blast! We ate amazing mac 'n' cheese at Noodles 'n Company in SLC. Dining with 5 kids was an adventure! This photo, I think, pretty much sums it up. Meghan was trying to get a pic of Steve with the 4 kids. Kelan was moving around, Kanyon and Scarlett were making silly faces, Cohen is being sweet (and active!) and Steve's trying to keep it all wrangled in. And then there's Charlie at the bottom, who's looking at me like "Mom, are these crazies really my cousins?!!?" :P
Now onto Trev's 28th Birthday! I have no pictures of the birthday boy. He was sick. He went to work for only a couple hours in the afternoon. He could barely talk, so those couple hours were torture! The one blessing from that, though, is that we actually got to see him on his birthday since Mondays are usually very long days at work! That morning (the 26th) I went to the grocery store and thought the produce looked really pretty so I took this photo:
Okay, just finishing up the rest of the Instagram photos! The next day, Tuesday 11/27/12, Charlie and I really needed to get out of our sick house and went on a walk to the park for some fresh air. He finally got brave enough to crawl through the tunnel. Once he did it, he just went back and forth a lot until he discovered something more dangerous to do. ;)
