Thanksgiving Weekend at Grandma and Grandpa Petes.

This year we had Thanksgiving at Grandma and Grandpa Petes house. It was so fun to be able to spend the whole weekend with family. We drove up Wednesday and started cooking. Thursday morning we finished preparing the food and ate our magnificent feast at around 2:00 pm. It was great! Everything was so yummy and we ate and ate and ate! Later in the day we went down to Aunt Linda's and Uncle Lee's home to have dessert. After making ourselves sick once again, we headed back home to Grandmas to put kids to bed and begin our all night shopping extravaganza! We started in Park City at the outlet malls, came back and shopped around Orem, and finished up near Salt Lake at the REI store at about 9:00 the next morning. We had lots of fun and got lots of screaming deals! It was a fabulous day and night.

Sunday morning we woke up to lots of snow! The kids were so excited and went out right away in their Jammie's to play.

Ethan did get dressed, he was supposed to be helping Aaron shovel but the temptation was too great!

Shae opted to stay inside and color rather than go out in the freezing cold. Smart girl!

Shae got braces put on her top teeth the day before Thanksgiving. I'm sure they must have been quite uncomfortable, but she never complained. What a trooper!
