A Utah Thanksgiving

I love the holidays.  If I had to pick one holiday as my very favorite, I would have to say that it's Thanksgiving.  Last year, we decided to stay in California and I cooked my very first Thanksgiving.  It was different and it was fun, but I missed our family's traditions and swore I would never miss another Utah Thanksgiving again.  It's always fun to be in Fillmore for Thanksgiving.  My mom makes the BEST Thanksgiving dinner.  I hope one day I can measure up to her mad cooking skills.

Mia and her cousins Gavin and Devin. 
 The WHOLE Roper family was there this year!
 The Elite table: Buck & Kirstin, Hailey & Jordan
 First Turkey Day!
 Merek and Gram. They're just about 7 weeks apart.
 Christmas tree hunting!
 Mia couldn't ingest enough snow!
 Quality time with Grandma Great!
 Each year the city of Fillmore puts on a light parade.  This year my dad hooked the Apple Creek Farm wagon, decorated with lights, to the Percheron horses and we all rode in the wagon.  It was so fun, but so cold.  

 Mia was not in the mood for Santa this year.  But she did manage to tell him what she wanted this year. Whew! And Merek? Well he was home in bed while visions of Sugar Plums danced in his head!!

This is How He Rolls....

I can't believe that Merek started rolling today *sigh*!  Thank goodness it's just tummy to back for now.  I can't stand how fast he's growing up,

Skool is Kool!!

Mia started preschool this week.  Can you tell that she's so excited?  Before we moved, I had her enrolled in a preschool in Oceanside and she was super excited to go to school.  I debated whether or not to put her in school considering most schools were already 3 months in and the ones I looked into were already full.  But it just so happened that the one school I wanted her in had an opening the first of November so it worked out perfect. She goes on Tuesday and Thursday for 2 1/2  hours. Mia's happy.  I'm happy.  Enough said!
