So, this Thanksgiving, my nephew completed his mission for our church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in Italy, and came home. All of my kids were so excited, as they really enjoy doing things with Brayden, and there has been such a noticeable difference with him gone. I know his own family really missed him. Anyway, we drove up to Utah. Luckily for us, their was some snow a couple weeks ago, and the ski lifts were open!! Yay for us!! Snowbird here we come!
The snow was fine until the afternoon, when it began to get a little icy!
One of the evenings, we went to City Creek Mall, in Salt Lake City, and walked around. One of my nieces said on the opening night, they put glitter in the creek or something?? and it was amazing. However, we did not see that. No glitter!! Bummer!
This is my hubby! He really loves his nieces! Just looking at this picture makes me laugh! That is really his personality with those nieces and nephews! Everything is a big tease fest!
At the end of the night, we were able to walk over to Temple Square and see the beautiful lights over there. It was the first night they were all lit up. There was a neat feeling when the narrator and music began at the large outdoor nativity display. Sorry, no picture of that, darn! The sheep were so cute!
This is a picture of all the cousins and there were 5 of them missing since their families weren't able to make it up to Utah. We missed you!
I was so thankful to be able to go, even though I caught some kind of nasty bug and was feeling SO under the weather!
