More of our Thanksgiving Trip

We took the older kids to the skatepark and this is my "kid" trying to be cool like his niece. He didn't quite get to be as good as here, but we sure had fun!!!
Happy Uncle, Happy Andrew!!! Such a sweet baby!!!

Lots of family hanging around waiting for Cruz to blow out candles. It was his Birthday after Thanksgiving. His cake turned out to be pretty funny. When Manuel brought it home he wasn't as gentle as needed when carrying a cake so half of it ended up mushed! But that didn't stop us from enjoying it!!

More family hanging out!

This is Nena at her basketball game. She totally rocked and seemed to be the only one on her team that knew what she was doing. I remember playing little league basketball and oh! the memories. I don't think I was as good as Nena is, but I will never forget my experiences!
And this is Lizzy's basketball game. She also did really well. I am glad that we got to go to their games and watch them do something that we miss out on being clear across the country. We miss them so much!

Thanksgiving 2009

The Crack of Dawn on Black Friday.
Yep, I went out with my new sister and mother and hit the stores!!

This year we were able to go to Idaho for Thanksgiving and see family. We had such a great time and it was wonderful to get away from work and all the responsibilities at home. We stayed with Alex's sister and almost everyone in his whole family came there to see us. And what a great family it is!!!! We loved spending time with our nieces and nephews. They are so full of energy and life. (and I love being Aunt Sarah!) Everyone was very accepting of me and they were delighted to welcome Alex home after a two year absence. Here are some pictures to illustrate the activites that have been turned into sweet memories.Doing what we do best! Relaxing and being together!
