Thanksgiving break


On our way to Nyssa 
 Payton was getting bored in the back seat by herself,  so I entertained her with taking picture of her.
 Getting ready to take family pictures 
 Super cut hair done by Aunt Megan

 Payton did a lot of dancing during the break with cousin Cole
 Some picture of our Ranger ride up to Brundage

 Almost everyones gingerbread houses.

         This thanksgiving we went up to the cabin in Mccall.  I didn't take a lot of pictures, but we sure enjoyed ourselves.  We had some amazing food especially the pies. We played turkey football (our team won), played some basketball, racquetball and went swimming.  I finally beat Smitty in Ping Pong, which was super exciting!!!  We did some crafts including a christmas decoration and making gingerbread houses. Watched a lot of Duck Dynasty which is a very funny show.  Took some family pictures hopefully they turn out good this year. Went on a ranger ride, which was little scary for me and megan.  Payton had more candy in one day than I think she has had in her life, but she loved the attention her uncles and aunts were giving her.  She loved playing with her with cousins and the dogs. We had an amazing time with the Hartley's and glad we had the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with them. There are so many things that we grateful for including our family, friends and the gospel.  Enjoy this time of year with the ones you love.

 Nick was very sweet to bring me some flowers home as a surprise. 
 Yep, she is palming the ball, unfortunately she is a midget baby or we'd teach her how to dunk.
 We are firm believers that you don't need toys when you have pots and bowls. 

Payton enjoyed Allie coming to visit us!!!
