My EPIC Thanksgiving

Well all, how was your Thanksgiving??  

Ours was so much fun. My family and T's family met up in St. George for the Holt Family Thanksgiving. It was a very different Thanksgiving than our regular 5 person dinner. This was a feast of epic proportions. There were about 130 Holt's, in a gymnasium, giving thanks and grubbin on food.

Don't believe me. Check it out.

 The whole Thanksgiving gang

I wish I took a picture of the gym before everyone sat down. 
It was decorated so nice

This big dinner was actually done around lunch time, then afterwords there was a talent show where T's cousin sang a song he made for T thanking the troops for all they do. It was the cutest thing.  Then tables and chairs were moved so the boys could play basketball and there were crafts going in the church rooms for all the kiddies.

We also took the opportunity to take a family photo while we were all together.

 This is T's immediate family and the family I will be marrying into. 
These lovely people are Aunts & Uncles, Grandma & Grandpa, and Cousins

Because Thanksgiving "dinner" was so early after all the fun and games we had a second dinner at the condo and played games!

Of course the next day was Black Friday. T stood in line with his Aunt, Uncle and cousin for 8 hours outside of Best Buy to buy a PS3. (I actually bought it for him) And I woke up at 4am to shop with my sister and T's sisters. I just bought a few presents and later that day T and I bought new phones! 

I love my new Fascinate. 

Anyway, Saturday was the family  Christmas party (Yes in November but hey, that was the only time everyone would be together) where we played more games! Ate good food and enjoyed the company of everyone.

 Monopoly Cards, Best Game Ever Invented!

(why do I look all squished and chubby?)

Then on Sunday we took the epic drive back home. It is normally a 6 hour drive from ST. George to my home town but we hit crazy traffic. It took us 9 hours but we were thankful to make it safe.
Love you all!
