THANKSGIVINGS

FEAST DAY 1
.
We had Thanksgiving with the Bountiful, Utah Brown clan. Aunt Joy cooked up the yummiest of traditional meals with some Japanese touches. I've never had sushi on Thanksgiving, but I wasn't complaining. Andrew especially appreciated the reminders of his mission.



Making sushi rolls:
Grandpa Ni, Jennifer, and Aunt Joy



Davin, Andrew, and Karsten pretending they aren't up to no good. I won't go into any ridiculous details...but there were definitely Kung Fu Karate kicks involved (hi-ya's included).

.

.

While there, I played with a Wii Fit for the first time. Is there a resemblance between my Mii and me?


FEAST DAY 2
.
The next day, the Jolley family gathered in Pleasant Grove at Grandma's House.
Lots of people, lots of action, lots of food, and lots of football.

My second Thanksgiving meal of the year



Little sis' Aurora. She's 5. Check out her reeally nice portraits (HERE) I took over the holiday.I'm telling you...her big blue eyes will blow your mind.




My two year old twin sisters hadn't seen me in a year. They didn't remember me and as such, their shy selves hated my stinkin' guts. My cousin Michael's, brand-new baby Asher, seemed to like me okay though. (Can you say precious?) Mostly, his parents were just lucky I was never left unsupervised. I totally would have carried out my plot to smuggle him home with me.

But wouldn't you know it. The twins absolutely ADORED Andrew.



Whatever. I'm not bitter.
Just know, that the next time I see Aria and Belle, I fully intend to buy their love with an exorbitant amount of candy. I simply can't compete with Andrew's dimples in any other way.



The "kids" (minus me) : Becca, Belle, Aria, Andrew, and Aurora.

P.S. BYU kicked booty over the weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas! We saw your mom today in the library, Rachel! (We`re just moved into the El Dorado Ward.) It was a pleasant surprise.

Rachel,
In that photo of you holding Asher, you have a striking resemblance to Jane Seymour.
