When we got home from California, Willie had a day off and I went back to work for a day, then headed down to St. George for Thanksgiving!  We had such a fun time with everyone that was able to be there (we missed you Marcie and Jamis!).  We definitely miss seeing everyone, and were so excited and happy to spend time with the family!  

For Thanksgiving day we went out to eat at a buffet.  It was delicious!  We enjoyed the nice weather and scoped out the Black Friday deals while we waited to get in.  

That night we went Black Friday Shopping (no pictures), and found some great deals!  We stayed out until 4 AM!!  I had not stayed up that late since college!  It was super fun!  But, when I woke up (at 2 pm) the next day, I was so exhausted.  My body is getting old!  I cannot believe it.  I know I'm not that old, but it is a weird feeling to all of the sudden get queasy on roller coasters, have my metabolism slow down, and now I realize I can't handle those really late nights like I used to be able to!  It is crazy.      

The next day, we went on a hike at Zion's National Park.  I had never been there, and loved it!  It was really pretty.  This is us riding in the shuttle up to where we started the hike.

 The girls,

the guys,

and Willie and I.

We celebrated Kelli, Jacob, and my birthdays that had happened recently, and Jamie's real birthday on Sunday!  

We had fun decorating the tree on Sunday :)

We loved spending time with everyone!!
