The One with Thanksgiving 2011


Thursday, November 24, 2011

Today was just how Thanksgiving should always be - full of food, friends, family, fun, laughter, lights, and lots of Christmas movies. We arrived at the Warners a little after 9am - just in time to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade!

I brought Fox's bag-o-toys which kept him entertained for .02 seconds. He wants the TV 'motes, cameras, cell phones, and computers.

After the parade we headed outside to take pictures and set up Christmas lights. Provo is so beautiful.

Joey wanted to come outside and play so badly! If he didn't run away and not come back when he's called we woulda...

Did I mention Allie got engaged?

Kidding. She just tried Aunt Katy's ring on for size. Don't have a heart attack Malm :)

Joey got soooo much attention from all the wee little ones. He was a good doggie and kept his cool all day. The puppy training classes worked like a charm!

The feast began around 5pm.

The Taylors/Evans' had our own exclusive table. Wish you were here Malm and Dald!

Dinner fit for a king!

Finally it was dark enough to light up the masterpiece - aka the tree in the front yard.

Magnificent!

We packed up our messes and then drove to The Riverwoods Mall to see all the twinkle lights.

This mall has changed so much since we moved to California two years ago - for the better! It's great!

A picture of the entire group, except Fox. He got the shaft cuz he was down low.

Now that Thanksgiving is over it's time to devote our 100% attention to Christmas!

Fox loooooved the lights! You can see him pointing at this super bright tree.
Photobucket
Awestruck.

Then we came over to the Taylors and watched Four Christmases followed by Elf. The plan was to stay up til midnight to hit up the Black Friday sales at Target, but every party has a party pooper and that's why they invited me :) I'll just go in the morning. Next year I bet sales will start during Thanksgiving so it'll have to be changed to Black Thursday and then Black Wednesday and then Black Tuesday until "Black Friday" is in October.

Perfect Thanksgiving from beginning to end!
