More from Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving was a great tim to spend with family. The Gingerbread house maybe not such a good idea. But the Gingerbread cookies we a HIT! They were great and not much of a mess at all. Faith had lots of fun though, so that's all that matters. Little Noah is sooo precious. It made baby fever worse! He just loved me for some reason and kept hugging my neck it was so comforting!!! I can't imagine what it will feel like to have one of your own. The snow was fun. It was about 20 degrees all that day but we still managed to show Nick the property, and get some 4 wheeling in. Show him a couple of ponds that were trying to freeze over. One day we went into town, because everyone is obsessed with helmets for skiing. I just couldn't imagine covering all my hair in a helmet it didn't make sense. My mom insists we look at them. He brings a few different ones out I try them all on and decided I would rather risk it than wear on of those on my head. Nick was insisting, and I had made my mind up! Till our Seven FOOT guy that was helping us (yes he really was! It made Matt seem short) He came out with a white helmet with silver snowflakes and burgundy satin and gold stitching. I took one look at it and said OKAY I can maybe wear that one. Iy had goggles to match and everything. I felt like a princess when I had that one on... Well I guess I will be the first ever "Helmet Princess" all for the cause of safety! I didn't get to try it out yet, but we are going skiing in Park City in Feb. I will get to break it in there. Nick picked a grey one. He looks pretty studly in his I might add!

It was a great trip we ate ALOT! The sticky buns I made there in the picture were amazing. I don't know if I have had better! I made them twice they turned out much better the second time! The pies were in abundance! We put a pretty good dent in them though!

We both got sick on the way home. I am guessing eating like that did us in since we have been so healthy the past few months. Nick made the comment, "His body was just mad at him for not having enough Myoplex" It was probably the truth!
We are back on track I have made
Penne Pasta with Turkey meatballs (easy and yum)
Gilled Chicken and Asparagus
Green Chili Chicken corn chowder

so far this week!

Last but not least I am very thankful for my family that we were able to see this Holiday, and for our family that we weren't. We are so blessed to have so much love from both sides of or family to overflow into our home!

Nick and I love each other TOO MUCH! (I don't think there is such a thing!)
