This year for Thanksgiving we went to My parents house down In Alpine. It was just my parents, my brother, and me and Jason. The food was fantastic and we got to take home left over’s. After eating a great meal we Played a game of canasta boys vs. girls... The girls won of course! Then it was off to rest while Jason and Austin Played Call of Duty, I just don’t get what the big deal is about this game but boys seem to love it! Later that night we went and saw Blindside, I recommend this movie it was so good, and made me realize how lucky I am. I love the holiday season! I love the spirit about it, the shopping, the giving, the smell, hot chocolate, Egg nog, family and friend time, Christmas shows, the lights, and I could go on and on... I am so lucky to have such an amazing family and to have married into the Erickson family love them!, I am also so thankful for such an amazing Husband who is definitely a better person then me, He seems to make me laugh daily even if I am in a bad mood!

Friday Me and my mom headed out in to the mad crowds for some shopping! I can’t believe how many people are out shopping! All in all it was a wonderful Holiday weekend and I am looking forward to this next Month!

Girls Weekend!

I love a good girls weekend! Friday me and my sister headed down to my parents house, we went to My Brothers High School Basketball banquet and watched the game. Then we stayed up late making cute necklaces. Saturday morning we woke up Bright and early and went to a bunch of little shops. I was able to find a Picture of the SLC Temple that I have always wanted but I could actually afford this one. My sister got lots of cute Bows for Avery and the new baby. Then we went to the mall to do some shopping. It was nice to get some more christmas shopping done. After shopping we went to see NEW MOON! We got there and the line was already Huge, so we got in the back of the line hoping that we would not get the front row and that we would all be able to sit by eachother. As were standing In line this family of 6 butts in front of us as there talking to the family in front of us he says "maybe we will just cut in line with you" ugh wrong!!.. Line butting is not cool especially for New Moon! By this time the line had gotten even longer and there were lots of people in front of us and behind us, so I decided I would say something to this line butter! I said oh no you might want to get in the back of the line look how long its getting.. He looked at me (mind you this guy is in his 40's) shrugged his shoulders and said ehhh..... I then proceed to tell him that I dont think its cool that he butted everyone! I may have over reacted but thats just because we were seeing New Moon!! He didnt move to the back of the line, but luckily we were able to all sit by eachother! I loved the movie and cant wait to go see it again!
