my catch-up arizona post

I got to spend a lot of time in AZ with a ton of family and it was awesome.

We spectated at the Tempe Ironman, ate at Joe's Farm Grill, ate again the greatest omlette ever, the San Diegan, at the Coffee Shop, In-n-out, Cafe Rio, and Chick-fila (multiple times). Saw the Christmas lights at the Mesa Temple with my brother, Matt and Grandma and played the dice game, Zilch, with them many times. Took a road trip to Vegas to see my one of my other brothers run the marathon on the Strip and got to see, and drive, over the supposedly unbuildable Pat Tillman bridge. It is so massive and beautiful! Got to see my niece's dance performance. Helped babysit my nieces and nephew with my mom and dad and loved being able to spend more time with my brothers, my sister-in-law, nieces and nephew, Grandma, cousins, and my Aunt and Uncle.

What made my Thanksgiving:
Stuffing, turkey, rolls and Grandma's Dixie salad and banana cream pie.
Watching my cousin's kids and my nieces and nephew reenact the story of Thanksgiving.
The beautiful table decorations.
Spending it with family that I am so blessed to have.

If you can't tell by this post, I think my niece, Hannah, is the cutest thing in the world.
