Ahhh Thanksgiving. I love the holiday season. It is the greatest time of year. The food, the weather, the family, but most importantly the SHOPPING! Just kidding. But really. Who doesn't like waking up at 4 in the morning to wait in long lines? I DO! It is the true shopaholic, like I, that loves Black Friday. The adrenaline rush you get the moment those store doors open, the angry mobs, the really mean lady -who you could have swore was the sweet old lady that was teaching sunday school last week- that just shoved you out of the way to get the last wii (black friday brings the claws out), bargains where ever you go, and of course the excuse to shop ALL day long and your husband can't say anything about it. Good times. Good times.

Anyway, it really was a great thanksgiving this year. We hopped from dinner to dinner like usual. To Ryan's family then mine. Eating a couple thanksgiving dinners is always fun until you can't button your pants anymore. But it is the delicious price you must pay when you love your families and they all live close by.
After the feasts and the shopping we spent the rest of the weekend in Wellton. It was great to see Ryan's sister Mandy and her family who came down from Utah. I love her kids! They would be mine if only their parents hadn't realized that we switched them out with our dogs as they were leaving. Kids hiding in the dog kennels and dogs strapped in the kids' carseats. Obvious I know, but worth a try. We miss you guys!
Since the whole Peterson gang was finally in the same spot we decided it was a great time to take some family pictures on the farm. Here they are. Enjoy!

Love the pictures!!! Everyone looks so good and I can't believe how much Mandy's kids have grown up so much!!! I have not seen them in so long!!! I wish we would have taken a picture of bob's family reaction when they say us, but I forgot, we were too excited to see them. :) Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving!! You and Ryan look great in your picture!! :)
