Happy Freaking Thanksgiving Peeps!! We sure had one...

Just thought I would add a little commentary to this amazing video Adam made :) We had SUCH a fun Thanksgiving!! We flew into Vegas on Wednesday morning into 65 degree weather, that was just beautiful! We spent the day with Adam's dad, and then that evening we went over to Brad and Emily's house. I have missed her SO much! It was SO much fun and so good to see them! Emily made a delicious dinner, and we just got caught up...I loved it! Then that night we went over to Kim and Jim's and hung out for a while, and then went back the next day for Thanksgiving. We always have so much fun with them! They are great at keeping us entertained the whole time we're there. Kim taught me how to make their family rolls, and how to do the turkey. And then before we ate we went out on a razor ride out in the desert behind there was a BLAST! Now I'm pretty sure that is at the top of Adam's want list! Then we ate dinner...and Kim is an AMAZING cook! Everything was SO good! Then that night we tried to go Black Friday shopping, we're some of the wierd ones that actually think it's fun...but not this time. We went for 3 different things...and came out emty handed. It was actually quite frustrating! Nothing started at the time that was advertised...everything was gone way before it was supposed to be. So that was a bummer.

Friday we drove down to Phoenix for a Gooch family reunion. Once again...we had a blast!! All of Adam's family is just so nice and cute. And it was about 10 degrees warmer there than in Vegas. It was up to 78 degrees. We actually went a pool outside and felt SO good. (And hot tubing...which was AMAZING! I think we were out there for about an hour and a half.) Saturday was the reunion all day. It was at a stake center, and we were outside playing the whole day. It seriously felt like it was July outside and we were just playing in the summer. We want to live there SO bad! I honestly was all for just leaving our stuff in Idaho, and us staying in Phoenix...maybe one day. It was sad to leave. We drove back that night and got up bright and early to fly back. It was a GREAT Thanksgiving!

Halloween was SO much fun this year...but it pretty much lasted a week for us! The Thursday before we went to Rupert because my school had a Halloween Party. Then Friday we decided to do our own Halloween Party, we wanted to meet some people in our new ward so we invited over 4 different couples and it was SO much fun!  We had some yummy Halloween food, played Minute to Win it & the Celebrity Name game. Then Saturday we had our ward dinner and trunk or treat which was really fun to. We decided to have sports be our theme for our trunk and our outfits. Brynlee was a little Lady bug for some of the events and dressed up in Jordan attire for the rest.
::Picture Overload!::
 Pasted out pretty much through the whole party! All of the other little kids LOVED her...and wouldn't leave her side.
 Minute to Win it...

 I had to take a picture of this and send it to Davey :)

 Our pumpkins this year...we think they turned out pretty good!
 She HATED her lady bug costume! Adam thought I was SO mean to put her back in it to take pictures!

 Bahaha...Boikins hated it even more! But when I got done taking pictrues of Brynlee I looked at Boikins and realized it would fit him PERFECT...I kid you not..I was laughing for a half an hour, he was HILARIOUS! And it took me about that long to keep putting everything on him and for them all to stay long enough for me to snap a picture. Probably animal cruelty...but totally worth it!

4 Year Anniversary

This year we had a lot of fun for our anniversary. We had someone in our ward watch Brynlee, and went and partied for a couple hours. We went to Outback Steakhouse, which was super yummy. Then we went on a fun little bookstore date that you can read about here. At the end of the night (2 hours later) we were that was just so much fun! Felt like the good old days (3 months before) where we could just go out and do anything we wanted. Not that we don't LOVE having Brynlee...but it was nice to get out just the two of us! 4 years has sure flown by! But it's been amazing!

Gooch Party

Adam's family came to visit for Brynlee's blessing about a month ago. We had SO much fun with them! It's always a party when the Gooch's come to town. Jared and his two girls came Friday night and we went to dinner with them, then watched Little Rascals :) Then on Saturday his mom, dad and Kim came in. Saturday was a beautiful day so we went to some fields just down the street from us and hit a few softballs. And went to a college volleyball game that afternoon.  Brynlee and Grandma Gooch got to spend a lot of quality time together over the weekend! It was sad to see them all leave, but we're excited to see some of the for Thanksgiving next week!
