Thanksgiving in Texas

We arrived back home to the Bay Area in the middle of November, just in time to see the leaves change. This is why Northern California is so pretty! They have mini-seasons where the leaves change with the season. The fall colors lined our street and neighborhood. We were home for a whole week to enjoy my fall/Thanksgiving decorations, then we were off to Texas to spend the rest of the month with Owen's family.

We stayed with Owen's parents. Lydia and Cherry live there too, so we got to be with lots of family and our cute nieces and nephews. Being with the Allens = lots and lots of activities going on ALL of the time! These people don't ever stop! So we had plenty of fun for the week and half we were there.

We did lots of baking/food prep the day before Turkey Day

Thanksgiving Day consisted of family and yummy food.
I truely am thankful for the 2nd family I have. It's such a blessing to have great in-laws and sister in-laws. They have always made me feel like I am a part of the family and we love every single one of them!

Settlers and Card Games all week

Owen putting up Christmas lights

We saw lots of movies. Loved Arthur Christmas! Great holiday movie.

Big Project: I scanned all of Owen's mission emails, pictures and anything else mission related. Owen's mom was awesome and kept EVERYTHING related to his mish. So my next project is working on a giant mission book for Owen.

Went to the Dallas Temple

Made Christmas trees with the kiddos

I got home and put up our little Christmas tree that night! I love one holiday after another. We've been so lucky to spend them with our great family and friends!
