Thanksgiving part 2

Devin and I are really lucky because we had TWO thanksgiving dinners.
When we got to utah, we went to his grandparent's house (mom's side) to see all of his cousins and aunts and uncles. (They had a thanksgiving dinner the night before the actual day because one of the aunts had to leave town thanksgiving morning.) I'm not complaining!

So fun to see all of the smiley cousins! These 2 girls are in college now (byu and dixie). It's funny how the older you get, the smaller the age gap seems. When I met these girls they were in junior high and I felt super old, but now that they're freshman in college I feel like we're the same age. (i think in my mind i'll always be 18)

Devin's grandma, uncles, and aunt.


I didn't know so many people could fit around one iPhone screen to watch youtube videos.


Ettie loves her great grandparents. She's very lucky to have so many wonderful people in her family who love her. She's the first great grand child on Devin's mom's side. It's very exciting!

Grandpa dick calls her EJ. I love it (but only when he calls her that).
And when he's holding her he talks to her and tells her how wonderful she is and how she's the cutest baby ever and he tells her about Etta Place (from butch cassidy and the sundance kid) . it's the sweetest thing in the world. 
heart. melted.

thanksgiving part 1

Wednesday we flew to SLC for thanksgiving! 
We  I was a little worried after watching the news that morning about it being  one of "the busiest travel days" and all. But the airport was easy peasy and we found an awesome parking spot and got to the gate way early and even had time to grab a snack.

keeping ettie entertained with her favorite book "Puppy Boo".

the best thing ever is when the flight isn't full and we get a row to ourselves. So amazing! It's happened the last few trips we've been on and makes a huge difference with the little one.


We arrived at the same time as Devin's dad, so we got to see him for a few minutes and snap a few pictures!

Yay for seeing 3 grandparents in one day!

she's one loved girl.

don't worry, more pictures to come... I took over 600 pictures during this trip.
