Thanksgiving Week!

My parents set up an amazing idea to meet in Colorado for Thanksgiving. Oh my good heavens it was SO fun.  Best vacation EVER possibly. I loved it.
I was a little sad of having Thanksgiving in a hotel, but I'd rather be in a hotel with my family than not with them at all! Home is where the heart is, is the truest statement!
Spence, Dani & Jacob
The incredible marathon driver! He drove the entire 10.5 hrs there & the 7.5 hrs back on Sunday!
Mom & Dad brought Weston & I Christmas presents since we won't be home or see them again till late next year!  She made the cutest gift tags!
Not to mention the one from JB. W/ JB wrapping paper. Check Dani's blog for that picture.

We crafted a lot!!!! Here's mom painting her board after she painted Grandmother's board!
Wouldn't be a true family gathering if Dad wasn't watching a western.  Reminds him of his Idaho days. Living in the wild & sharing a small home with his 15 siblings & an Indian family.  That's my only explanation of why he could love these.
Momma cookin Thanksgiving dinner! 
Blarney Stone yuuuuummm!

She's so cute!
I would say I hope I'lllook as good as my mom when I'm older, but boy I'd love to look like her right now!
Don't worry the picture is focused on the mirror. & the football game....
here's the beginning of our states!
Super Dad! hahaha

Setting up the tables!
Taping down the table cloths!

Spencie & Dani
This one is for you, Tyler!
We also made pendant gift tags. SO cute. seriously.
Some I made, except I haven't sewn yet.
Drive home.
I have been trying to get this picture the past few drives past this.  I want to live in No Name.
Weston had to use the potty. So he pulled over. He didn't want to be seen. So instead of going right next to the car he walked way out to the middle of the desert where all the interstate could see. Fabulous. So very proud.  hhahah good heavens.


  1. Looks like you guys had fun! We missed you in Nursery on Sunday though =) Those crafts are adorable. You might need to teach me someday.

  2. My grandpa was born in No Name! I also got stuck in a snowbank there once. :-)

  3. Ok. Love that you all pulled thanksgiving off in a hotel room!!! I don't know why, but the fact made me smile. Kuddos to the mother!

  4. Love, love, loved this! Thanks for sharing!

  5. This was such a fun blog post! I was jealous reading it though because I wished I could have been there, too! I know you had a ton of FUN!!! I know that crowd really well! Thanks for sharing your good times, Rachel. It is such a lovely thing that you miss us, you miss your home and you want to be with us, too! All I can say is Ditto!
