Happy Thanksgiving everyone! You know what makes me so happy? When I send out a blog post to those of you on my e-mail list and I get back all of the “out of office” replies. There’s probably a way I could make it so that I don’t get all of them, but I haven’t looked into it because I love getting them in my inbox! It makes me happy to know so many of you are “out of the office” and taking time off for the holidays. I sit and delete them all with a big smile on my face. Kenny thinks I’m so weird… ha. But I love knowing my blog friends are taking time off! So I hope you’re all out of the office and enjoying your day today. :)

We traveled over the river and through the woods to grandma’s house and are so happy to be with family! We got in late and my cute mom surprised the kids with new beds and bedding for all the cousins. So much fun! She got these darling Pintuck duvet covers on Amazon and then picked up some cute Christmas blankets at Home Goods. (Ignore the horrible lighting! Snapped these quick at night with my phone before the kids got in bed.)
The boys got sloth blankets and stuffed animals. :)
My mom was doing a lot of food prep so I volunteered to take the kids to Target. Oh my WORD. That was an adventure! I felt like I had 300 kids with me! Ha. I told them they could all pick out a surprise from Aunt Erin and it was madness keeping them all together. (Snapped this waiting for El to get some make-up.) We came home with colorful teeth from slurpees, all sorts of surprises and new pjs. I fell on the couch from exhaustion didn’t move for an hour after. Attempting to be a fun Aunt is not for the weary. ;)
I snapped this pic in my closet when I started packing. I was so excited to pack all of my recent favorite sweaters because it’s COLD in Utah right now. A storm is coming and we’re crossing our fingers we get a little snow!
I’ve shared some of these sweaters, but haven’t had time to take pics of them all so here are links to all of my recent favorites! Some of them are marked down. YEA.
I can’t wait to wake up tomorrow to the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade on TV. We always start Thanksgiving day at my mom’s in pjs next to the fireplace watching the Macy’s parade. So fun to lounge all morning with my brother and sister and their families. One of my favorite days of the year. I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving day! I’m truly so grateful for all of you, your friendship and your support of my blog. It means so much to me.
