i'm just now (sheepishly) posting pictures from thanksgiving break. also, there are a few pictures of jessi's wedding (how sad is it that i didn't take any pictures around christmas? that i'm ashamed about)
(my nephew) gavin's birthday is the day before thanksgiving, and he had the day all planned out: first, carousel, second, the yoda/count dooku fight from start wars episode II. here are some carousel pics:
st george recently renovated an antique carousel--so neat!
lori's not going to be happy with her face in this picture, but i love it nevertheless! here are the thayns.
my cherry cardamom pie for thanksgiving! holy cow, yum. it got a little too brown on top (i didn't cover it with tinfoil, but it still turned out pretty good)
drumroll, please! yes, ladies and gentlemen, i cooked the turkey this thanksgiving. i commandeered the job from my dad, who did a lot of the dirty work for me (: i brined it, which was great and made it super moist and absolutely delicious. if i do say so myself.
how often is it warm enough to eat outside for thanksgiving dinner? i love southern utah!
yummy thanksgiving food
here's one of gavin
ashton, me, and sorry gavs, your face got cut it half
jessi's reception! the saga of the 1,000 paper cranes. yes, we folded them all, and yes, we hung them all. there were actually more like 1,050
here's the lovely bride! i love the skirt of her dress, and the veil is my mom's! lovely lovely
jessi's sequin jacket and taylor's shiny suit. razzle dazzle bride and groom
the cute little cranes on her cake! also, the cake stand is cut off in this picture, but it was a tree stump.
mindy and me
lastly, a full shot of jessi's cake and her bouquet.
that's all for now! new year, new semester, and new resolution to post once a week. i can do that, right?
