I think I start out every post on our blog, apologizing because I haven't updated.
Lets see a review starting with the present!
CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!!
Adam and I are a little sad we aren't in Utah, enjoying the snow and the beautiful lights at temple square, so we decided to bring a "Temple square" tree to our house.
Okay, so it was 1050 lights and we didn't even light up the entire tree, but it was worth a shot! We haven't decided if we want to spend another 2 1/2 hours on it again this Saturday!
We celebrated two events on Thanksgiving weekend!
We spent Thanksgiving day with Adam's family in Kanab. The only ones that came to the Douglass's this year were Adam's
parents, Grandma White, Jarrett, Jessica, & Chance, and Adam & I. It was small in the crowd of people this year, but really nice to enjoy the food and visit with everyone. Unfortunately, Adam spent most of the day not feeling well. Poor guy! He barley ate anything for Thanksgiving dinner.
The girls spent most of the day in the kitchen, making the yummy food. (PS Maria, that salad was a HIT! Definitely one I will keep on my Thanksgiving menu in the future!) The boys enjoyed Ping Pong Tournaments and building shelves in the new closets down stairs. (Adam's parents are finishing their basement).
On the day after Thanksgiving we headed up to Provo where we got to say hello to Sean & Sara (Adam's bro & sister-in-law) and meet his new niece Stella! They were visiting Sara's family from Seattle! It was so great to see them. We miss them so much!
One of the main reasons we headed up to Provo was because my two nephews are headed out this week to their missions! Brandon (left) is Headed to the England London South Mission and Tyson (right) is headed to the Via Del Mar, Chile Mission. We are so proud of them! It was so hard to say goodbye for two years ... those boys are like little brothers to me, but I hope they know how much we love them!
While we were together as the "FULL Dudley family" for the last time, we tried to take a few family picts! The boys goofed off (as usual) but these pictures ended up being our favorite!
We have to find a few fun things to do with this great weather we have down here, so Adam and I took out the Rhinos one Saturday by his job site to look at all of the beautiful scenery. I may be 6 months pregnant, but that isn't going to stop me!
Last but not least, a friend of ours brought us some GREAT apples from Utah, and so I HAD to make an apple pie. I was really excited that it turned out, so I had to post a pict! I swear this pregnancy thing has really done something to my sweet tooth! YIKES!
I am sure we will have lots of more pictures to show you in the next little bit with Christmas coming. I will be sure to post a "Sixth Month" belly picture soon for all the requests!
