Thanksgiving was great. I think it was first time we celebrated a major holiday without some other family with us. We ate our thanksgiving feast with out dear friends the Klemetson's. They have one sweet little girl, Eliza, who is right between Ethan and Corryn age-wise which means she's their best friend. They've also got another little girl on the way. :) Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of all of us together with our feast, which I am now regretting.

I made half our feast including the turkey breast, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, and Jon's mum's waldorf salad. It was my first time cooking turkey and I decided to brine it. Such a good choice. I also whipped up two pumpkin pies from scratch for Jon, it's his favorite.

Thanksgiving morning we packed the kids up, still in their pj's, and went to our ward's Turkey Bowl. It's tradition for the young men to play the "old" men. Old meaning 25 or over. The young men always win, always, and this year was no exception. Our side of the team included a former BYU football player and BYU track star... but we still lost. It was super fun to watch though. Have to say, my husband looked pretty hot catching the football in that jersey and cleats.

The day after thanksgiving we started a new Evans family tradition, Movie Night! We rented Shrek, pulled all the pillows and blankets into the living room, made popcorn, and ate licorice. The kids had a BLAST! Ethan sat through almost the whole movie, I was so impressed. Soon I'll have to take him to the movie theatre for a mommy-son date.

While I'm not looking...

Ethan has gotten into some trouble lately. Some cute trouble... and not so cute trouble.
not so cute... he's picked out all the sprouts in my small garden multiple times
 not so cute... while I was in the shower he got into my flour and sugar canisters
SUPER CUTE... while on a trip to the grocery store with mom he snuck away and I found him here, sitting in the doorway of a karate class, watching the kids practice. It was so cute, he sat there for a good 15 minutes.
