Festival of Trees

On December 4th we went to the Festival of Trees!! They did a great job like they always do. They had a Christmas Vacation Gingerbread house, as well as the SL Temple!! It was so busy!!! We couldn't even find a parking spot. 
Our friends the Catmulls did a tree for their daughter in law Mindy!! It was made by her mother in law and her job! They did an excellent job. I wanted a picture by it but Blake wasn't having it haha!! Walking around a toy field place with a 2 year old, toys she couldn't touch or play with, was pure torture for her!!! But we did have a good time. Thank heavens for Fudge!! That helped her be good.
After we were done we had to walk across the street to our car. So I pushed the stroller and my mom and dad held Blakelee's hand while playing 1.2..3 swing!!! She was in heaven. VERY blurry picture but she was laughing so hard.
Then we had some dinner and Blakelee was so intrigued with their Christmas Tree!! It is decorated in Disney so she was loving all the characters!!
Can't wait for Christmas!!

If you know me at all you know that I am a quote person!! I love quotes so much and will read over quotes daily. These are just a small few that I found that are amazing!!


In the morning we watched the Macey's Parade! Blakelee loved it so much. She was able to see all the fun balloons and floats that are the shows she watches. She would tell me exactly who they were!!
This morning she also thought it would be a good idea to lick the soap while in the bath!! This was her reaction haha!!! You learn and you live!
This year we went to my Grandma Payne's house for Thanksgiving. Everything was so yummy. It was so fun to see everyone.
After we were all full we played some games with all the cousins!
Then we made a thankful chain to hang on our Christmas Tree's.
Then since it was such a nice day, we played outside!!
We then went to Jcpenny's and got some things that my grandma wanted. Blakelee loved holding Great Grandma's hand in the store!!
Then it was relaxing time at home.
So Thankful for all these people and many more people who were not pictured. Griffin's family was in Arizona this year with Devin and Megan and their cute boys so we didn't get to spend our normal Thanksgiving with both sides of the family. So it was a much different year. Thankful for all the people in my life right now. All my amazing friends and family who are always there for me and my little family. Family is seriously everything, I don't know what I would do without my family.
