Thanksgiving Dinner

I just recently found out that for Thanksgiving this year my family will be coming out here from Washington. I am so excited to spend time with them especially on Thanksgiving. The last time I spent Thanksgiving with them was 5 years ago. I can't believe it's been that long, but since I met Joel I have always spent Thanksgiving with all his family. Except last year when we decided to not do Thanksgiving because Peyton was sick and everyone went down to SLC. Instead we ordered pizza and rented movies and put up all our Christmas tree!!
It will be fun to have everyone here. Did I tell you that there will be 28 people? And did I tell you that my 89 year old Grandma is cooking for all of us? She cooks Thanksgiving every year. And the sad thing is she WON'T let anyone help. We have all these great cooks, especially my sister, and the only thing she wants us to do is a salad. Silly old Grandma!! We just love her so so much!! I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Dress up

I love the days that Peyton comes walking out of her room and just makes me laugh. Last weekend Joel and I were getting ready to go out to breakfast. As we were getting ready to leave Peyton came walking out her bedroom thinking she would wear this lovely outfit!! All I could do was laugh and I told Joel she could just wear it to breakfast!!

When we got to Perkin's Joel insisted we take it off. Peyton's little heart was broken as Joel was fighting with her to get the skirt off. I guess Joel doesn't think it's okay for her to look so silly in public. I told him it can't be worse then the time he was little and would walk over to the neighbors house in his diaper and boots and stand at there bed while they were having Sunday naps......Now that is silly!!

Since last night was Halloween I thought maybe I should post up some pictures of Peyton in her costume. I also thought I would tell you how our night went!!

It started off great!! We drove to my aunt and uncles house where we decided to take Peyton because it's a really nice neighborhood and we knew we would be safe. We went trick or treating at my aunt's house first then off to the other houses.

The first house we came up to Peyton was very excited, but as soon as that door open and there was a stranger standing there with a big bowl of candy she freaked!!! Lets just say she didn't like it.
After a whole hour of walking around and knocking on about 25 doors Peyton, Joel, and I were freezing!!! We decided to head back to my aunts house and hand out candy and warm back up.

Maybe Peyton will like it a little more next year!!

This one she was running to me because she was scared. See her frozen tears?

This was after we got back from trick or treating and my aunt gave Peyton her Halloween bucket and these cute princess shoes were in there and she had to put them on!

This is her favorite thing to do at my aunts house.
