North Dakota trip part 2

After our yummy yummy in my tummy Thanksgiving dinner we went to the movie theater and had a private showing of Breaking Dawn!! Talk about being spoiled :) It was a good movie, although I thought there was going to be more to it... Oh well I'll still be buying it haha!

Our Breaking Dawn experience!

Growing up I never had the 'real Christmas tree' experience. My parents are all about the artificial tree's. This year I got to pick out my very first tree. I loved it! Walking around trying to find the perfect tree. And I found it and decorated it :)

Did I mention how cold it was there?!

While we had the entire family together we had to do family pictures. Since my mother in law is also a hairstylist we went down to her adorable salon and we cut everyone's hair! Seriously look how cute this place is..

 Cute right? This salon holds the keys to my heart.. haha :)

Main Street at dark.

The next day we did family pictures.. I'm pretty sure we chose the coldest day of the year to do them... It was miserably cold!!

Group hug!

Not all of them turned out good...

The grand kids were freezing.. and it showed!

After pictures we went and had lunch/dinner before I got back on the plane to go home.

That's Dave for ya.. eating the unhealthiest thing on the menu!

It was so incredibly hard to say goodbye again. I didn't want to leave!! But I had to :(

The kissing under the mistletoe picture :)

The one thing I had to keep me busy was an amazing book! Seriously one of my all time favorites. It's 619 pages of pure awesome! 

 Read it!!
It was one of the best Thanksgivings I've ever had.
I can't wait until Christmas when they are both with me in Utah!
