Food, Family, Fun and a COUGAR VICTORY!

Some of our cute nieces and nephews!

I love Thanksgiving! I love hanging out all day, watching football, snacking, talking and cooking. It is the epitome of a happy day. Steve and I were so lucky this year to have the chance to spend the holiday with family. We went to his sister's cabin in Ogden Valley where we stayed with Steve's sister and brother and their families. Steve's parents were also able to come to Utah for the weekend...a rare treat. Although we were missing a few of the Burden clan, we were grateful to hear from them either on Thanksgiving Day or the following day.

Thanksgiving is always a huge feast, but with Steve's sister in charge, this is an understatement. We were literally baking and cooking from 8:00 on Wednesday evening to 3:00 Thursday afternoon. Luckily we took some breaks to watch football and movies (including my favorite...Hairspray!).

Sadly Steven and I had some car troubles, but thanks to the grace of my parents we were able to get my Honda fixed by Friday evening so we could leave on Saturday for the big football game. As Steve and I were getting ready to leave that morning, I had the blonde moment of all blonde moments...I flushed my cell phone down the toilet. Thanks to Steve and his brother Dan's "handimanship" we were able to remove the toilet (yes, the whole thing had to come up) and found my phone in the last turn of the toilet pipe. If it had made it around that final would have been lost forever. After much drying, the phone is back in it just needs to be sanitized!!!

After that fiasco, Steve and I were on our way back to Provo. We made it just in time to see the start of the big BYU vs. Utah football game. This is the biggest game of the year and always causes some (totally necessary) stress. After three low scoring, nail biting quarters, BYU pulled it out in the end with a clutch touchdown. My throat is still scratching from the strain I put on it for 3 hours yesterday!

What a great weekend!

You've made me hungry again with the pics of the table! It was a fun weekend. Soon I'll have proof of the toilet fiasco on my know I have to post those pics. He he. It was a fun weekend and we were really jealous when we were listening to the game on the radio knowing that you were there...but all that matters is that BYU pulled through!

First of all you guys are on my black list. One, for not showing up for Thanksgiving and two, not showing up to go to the game. Seriously, does family mean nothing to you? just kidding.
And secondly, How in the world do you FLUSH your phone down the toilet? I thought I was spacey, but I think this beats anything I have done by far. oh well, its something to laugh about, right? But I don't think I will be borrowing your phone anytime soon.
Keep being ditzy, so that I can keep laughing.
Love ya!
