Another fun thing that we got to do while my parents were here was go to a BYU basketball game. Tom happen to get 6 tickets (on the 2nd row) from his boss for the Thanksgiving weekend which turned out just perfect. We got to take Lacey, Travis & Jade with us as well. I went swimming before the game to help my pain be a little lower (something about the buoyancy of the water has been helping me) and Tom carried me up and down all those stairs on his back. Thats true love.
It was a great game and Kyle Collinsworth ended up getting the all time triple double record during the game!
We were planning on having a McConnon Thanksgiving this year, but when Rita couldn’t come out again so quickly after her last trip we decided to just do a small Thanksgiving celebration at home. But last minute my parents decided that they would head down to Utah as well and help us make a Thanksgiving meal.
They came down for the weekend and we got a chance to spend some fun time together. Lilah helped shovel the driveway one day with Grandpa.
Grandma and Grandpa took the girls on a little tour of where they use to live in Provo when I was a little girl. They also got spoiled with ice cream cones.
My mom worked so hard to prepare a delicious dinner for all of us and I was so grateful for her help. We would have been eating a lot more simply if Tom and I had been in charge. I just can’t do much cooking at all right now.
This is one of my favorite spots to sit in my house. It’s less painful than sitting on a chair, and it’s kind of right in the middle of everything so I can still feel like I get to be part of things. I can play with Daisy and talk to everyone in the kitchen.
Lilah was so cute all day with her crafts and creations. She made a thankful tree with leaves that said things she was grateful for. Then I helped her make an indian vest and she made an indian head band complete with feathers.
But my favorite thing she made was this t-shirt. It has a pictures of a turkey leg with the words “Hape Thaksgveg” on it. I just love this girl.
I also had to put in a picture of this cute note she wrote Daisy a few days before when they were both feeling under the weather. (dear daisy, I am sorry that you’re feeling bad. Happy Thanksgiving).
Lilah also made and colored place mats for all of us to eat on for thanksgiving dinner. The food was delicious and we all ate way too much. We also had lots of leftover which is wonderful!
Don’t worry, we moved her :)
Travis came over a few days and helped Tom frame in the crawl space! We are making progress! We now have all the electrical and framing done. Now we just need to hire someone to do the drywall, carpet and finish work. Thanks a ton Travis!
These 2 were feeling a bit under the weather today and it was so sweet to watch them cuddle together for a minute and watch a little movie. Sisters are the best.
