This year we had a pretty busy Thanksgiving week/weekend.

We did our Christmas decorating before we left since we are only at our place for a few weeks in December and Henry was beginning to get going on it.

Note: Henry managed to make "eevel" from our believe sign.Yikes!

Then on Tuesday night we had our friends come in from Arizona to stop overnight before continuing on to their Thanksgiving festivities in Utah.

We had a nice dinner out the night with them and my cousin and her two boys. I love when we can go out to eat and enjoy the time there without thinking about having to do dishes or clean up!

Wednesday morning we had a nice breakfast together (thanks Costco) then they headed to Utah while Henry and I packed up for our trip to CA.

Once Johann got back home we headed straight for Riverside and spent the night and Thanksgiving there. It was pretty quiet, with just us, Johann's parents, his brother Kaleb and Kaleb's fiance, Kailee. They were so cute and made Henry little turkey cookies for dessert which he loved :)

Henry convince Abuela and Grandpa to take out their tree for him to decorate too. Maybe he's part elf?

That night we decided to do something I'll never do again because of how tired I was the rest of the weekend-Black Friday. We drove to AV, dropped Henry off at my moms and headed to Target. It really wasn't that horribly crowded, the line was ridiculous to check out, though it moved fast, but I think I've decided it's not worth it! We were able to get double the stuff for the budget we set for Henry's 'Santa gifts' and got it all done in one night, but man. I think I'm still tired. I know, being out of school has spoiled me sleep wise I think.

Friday we did the traditional setting up for Christmas and Henry baked Christmas cookies with Grammy, some to eat and some to go on the tree.

Saturday we went and Saw the Muppets, it was pretty darn cute and then spent time with the fam.

Sunday, we went to church with my mom, where Henry decided to cast himself in a starring role in Sacrament meeting by yelling at Johann as he took him out, "LET GO OF ME YOU STUPID GUY!!!" Poor Johann. He's shy enough as is. Oh and additionally everyone got to see the lovely drawing Henry did on his tummy right before church as he was being dragged out. THAT, however, was started by Grammy. Yeah, you're still in trouble for that one!
Oh, and the best part-the first talk was on following the example of little children. I think everyone in the congregation got a good laugh out of the juxtaposition they saw that morning. So happy we can visit a provide some entertainment. :)

It was, as always, a quick trip, but we're happy it's a much closer one now. Only a few more weeks and we'll get to have our extended Christmas stay, as well as Kaleb and Kailee's weeding-woohoo! Come on, December!

Where does Henry come up with the things he says? He's hilarious!

How fun! I love Henry and the cute things he says.

Oh Henry... he'll be calling his dad "stupid guy" for a while I assume. I miss you guys and I like the kissing turkeys!

So funny! And I love the eevile made from believe. We had a friend who would always change my mom's santa blocks to say satan. Memories!
