we were able to spend thanksgiving with mike's family in idaho falls and utah and spend christmas in california with my family. both were a lot of fun! thanksgiving we played the traditional football game in mike's mom's backyard. and for the first time we fought the crowds at walmart on black friday. mike and i both agree that once is enough unless there is something really worth while. afterwards we had breakfast with mikes brother and sister in law at dennys, which made the 5am trip worth it.
it was nice to get away from the cold snowy winter of idaho and enjoy the warmer weather in california. we got some really great things but the best was watching caiden open his presents! its getting more and more fun as he gets older and is starting to figure things out.
