For Thanksgiving this year, it was extra special for Kev and I. We hadn't seen each other in a month...and for some reason it felt even longer. The previous month we hadn't seen each other for a month either, but that went by super fast. The month of November seemed like 6 months so it was definitely a perfect Thanksgiving for us. I flew in Thanksgiving day to Salt Lake and was greeted by my love. He looked so hot! :) It is kind of fun because when we do see each other, I always want to make sure my hair is done, nails done, perfect outfit and so on! just as if we were on our first date! :) SO from the airport, Kev's bro Bryan and his wife Dana and Kev and I drove to Bluebell to meet up with the whole Todd family and Grandma and Grandpa Todd's ranch. Bruce (Kev's dad) is one of 9 so there were a ton of people there! it was so fun seeing everyone! I unfortunately didn't get any pictures that day...but we had a blast playing games and catching up! Then Friday we went to the Vernal temple. It was such a nice day and a beautiful session. I am so grateful for temples! After that, we got our grubb on at Cafe Rio and then went back to Roosevelt. Where we did this....Started setting up Christmas!!! I still can't believe it's here! Man, i love this time of year!! You just can't help but be happy because it really makes you think of all you have been blessed with! Here's Kev and Bry setting up the Christmas tree.Kiley (Kev's lil sis) and I putting up the walkway of stars! It was so dang cold doing this!Kev and Ki putting up the "candy cane" lights.Here's just some of the family. Dana was sick so she wanted to take the picture and Trev is in Japan on his mission!Saturday, we went down to Provo and Kev, Bryan, myself, and Bruce went to the BYU vs. UofU game. I was so happy that I was able to go! Bruce has season tickets and the boys go to the games a lot, so you better believe I was excited to go to this particular game! It was so intense!! We brought some much needed hot chocolate. it was so fun! As you see...Bryan is wearing red...he goes to UofU. We were cheering for BYU...but in reality...I was singing the Utah State Alma Matter when the band would play. You better believe Kev and I are Aggies ALL THE WAY!!!This game was so sweet. If you didn't catch the score...it went into OT and BYU won by 3! The fans charged the field! Sunday already? Yes...I left Sunday night! Luckily my flight didn't leave until 9pm, so we went to temple square to check out the lights. It was so awesome. I still don't know how they do every branch the way they do!!
Tell me Kev does not look hot in this pic. holy moly! :)
This sight was amazing!
Like I said earlier...there are so many things I am thankful for. It's hard to put it into words...but I have been so blessed. My wonderful amazing husband... I never want to take what we have for granted. Our relationship is something I am so grateful for. He is my everything. he just "gets" me and I love it. We were up until 3:30 am Friday night just talking about life and what we are grateful for. How many husbands can do that?! I am so grateful for both of my families who I love so much! I am so grateful for my Savior and the atonement of Christ...for the gospel...for temples...for my Heavenly Father and Mother...and so much more!
Unfortunately I flew out the day before Kev's bday, but we will celebrate it soon......SO EXCITED!!! to be continued.........
