so i lied

sometimes when i say i'm gonna take millions of pictures, i just mean that i'll forget to because i'm having so much fun.

hence me only having a {small-ish handful} of happy snaps to share from my turkey day extravaganza.

but that's okay, because they are all pretty tender.

i had an {extremely enjoyable} weekend filled with fun family, lotsa calories, and backing out of the turkey trot due to myron's entire bod being totally jacked since his accident. {single tear} but! we had a fabulous tasting breakfast at the dunn's instead!
{thanks debra!}

and then the next day:


eric came home from outer mongolia!


and he looks exactly the same, only even better.


it's SO good to have him chillin' in az/the same continent.


chloe loves him.
{i knew she would.}


thanksgiving dinner was extra special this year...
feasting+my's b-day+eric's arrival=par-tay!


hi gramps.
{you're a rockstar.}


and isn't this your favorite picture of ryan ever?!


visitors came from utah. we had cute houseguests that slept on our two twin beds in the black hole.

{it was delightful.}


{i told you we'd bust out a puzzle.}

*back to real life, yos.*


{happy 99.9 listening, setting up your tree, stringing christmas lights, wrapping & shopping, baking, and maybe stressing.}


and preparing simplicity if you're me...

Holy most tender pictures ever! These are all tdf and I am lovin' them all. Is Chloe looking totally different/older before our eyes, or is it just me? She practically a wo-man.

Glad you/Elder Dixon's back.

I am in total agreeance (sp?). Eric looks the same but better. YAY for ED being home! That is the cutest picture of Ryan ever...he is a lady killer, oh to have had a hottie like him when I was in HS. LOL What a great weekend. It was fun to see you guys again! Hope its again soon. LUVS

It WAS a fantastic weekend, and thanks SO much for letting us crash in the black hole/totally comfortable beds and stuff. I really enjoyed just chillin with you and Myron and Chloe and Dyl-wad. I especially loved how fond Chloe was of beating the boy up. Good stuff. :) Thanks a gazillion!

I loved seeing you on Sunday and just wanted to say hello since I missed talking to you after. Your little family's cuter in person than they are in the pictures, and that's saying something! Hey--your grandparents were on the same flight home as us. It was fun to see them there. I love your grandmas hair!

Em said...

So cute Ang! I'm glad to hear/see you had a super great weekend. Isn't fun to see Chloe experience her uncle for the first time? I love it.

We had a wonderful time! It was great to spend time with everyone. Thanks for being so great to Katie and Dylan. AND for being a great cook. I'd love to have the salsa and roll recipes, if you wouldn't mind sharing them.
