Two years ago, we celebrated Thanksgiving in Utah with my fam:

(Don't mind my ginormous body and face - I was 3 weeks from delivering Tanman!)

Last year, we celebrated with Eli's fam in Arizona:

And our turkey was deep fried and the best turkey I've EVER eaten, hands down!
This year, we are celebrating with our new Vermont family! We have always been with family on Thanksgiving and I thought I would be sad and lonely without them this year, but instead, I am excited to be with our friends who have become like family to us. Along with SO many things I'm grateful for this holiday, I'm grateful for amazing friends who have really made our new life in Vermont so good and happy.

Happy Halloweeeeeeeen!

We had a fun month celebrating Halloween! This past weekend was packed full of Halloweeny activities. Tan really got into the holiday this year and loved that I let him eat candy a lot. Now I need to hide it because he totally knows that it exists. Here are some pics from our weekend!

This was at our Ward Halloween Party! We were in charge and had a blast planning and running it! Eli and I were grapes and Tan was Mickey. Tanner looks so sad in this picture. He had a rough night following us around as we ran the party. He hated that we couldn't hold him. My favorite quote by him that night was "mommy, balloons all done."

We went trick or treating on Saturday night since Halloween was on Sunday. We are so grateful to many of our neighbors for letting us come to their houses when it wasn't even Halloween yet! Eli was the door greeter on Saturday night! Tan passed out treats on Sunday night and took it quite seriously.
Our cute little trick or treating crew on Saturday night
I love how all the kids are at the door and Tan decided to park it on the steps and reach his bucket out as far as he could!
This is Tan with his little bestie, Jack!
With his spoils

Probably his 10th sucker of the night, no joke.

Happy Halloween!!!!!!!!
