Thanksgiving 2016

Friday, November 25, 2016

Photos and stories from the past couple weeks:
I couldn't help it! They started putting Christmas things out even before Halloween! So I gave in and got caught up in the holidays at the beginning of November.

Christmas cards since 2009 taped on a door. We're getting this year's pictures taken tomorrow!
A few days before I left working in-house at American Crafts in Utah way back in 2009 (we moved to California so Chris could go to dental school at USC) I purchased like 50 of every color of cardstock. Nearly 8 years later I still have most of it...! But it comes in great for things like this where I need lots of of colors of paper. For Activity Days we traced our hands and wrote things we're grateful for to put on a Thankful Tree.

We've been watching Big Bang Theory and caught up to all the seasons they have available on Netflix. I look forward to snuggle time with my fat cat all day long, no joke.
They've been building this church in our neighborhood since shortly after we moved here in 2013. Supposedly it's opening in February. Anyway, I just thought it was a lovely morning with shapely clouds.
Fox's class had a Thanksgiving feast!
My little turkey.
Fox ate THREE corn on the cobs. Jane enjoyed "eating" plastic food.

The sun rarely shines in these parts this time of year, so any glimpse of sunshine is worth documenting, especially pink and blue sunrises!

We started a new tradition a few years ago: on Thanksgiving we watch all 10 Thanksgiving-themed Friends episodes. They're the best. Friends is the

I made a green bean casserole! Chris made everything else. He's amazing.

Turkey time!
Get in my belly!
So thankful for my family - words can't adequately express how much they mean to me! We just tried for a year unsuccessfully to get pregnant and now with a big move back across the ocean we're putting growing our family plans on hold and I've finally found peace with this. It will happen (hopefully!) in due time and I'm so thankful for the two wonderful and amazing children we do have! ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡ 
Happy Thanksgiving from the Evans fam!


  1. Happy Thanksgiving!!!!! LOVING all the photos!! I decorated for Christmas this past weekend, I can NEVER wait till after Thanksgiving! LOL!!! Sorry to hear the baby plans didn't work out for now ... but I am sure He has a plan :)

  2. Happy, belated Thanksgiving, Paige! LOVE the "Friends" tradition! We love "Friends", too! And sometimes, our best laid plans simply aren't part of His. So glad you're grateful for the beautiful babies He has given you! We'd have a dozen more, if He'd blessed us with more financial success. LOL! Maybe, He's sparing me. Tee hee! TFS!
