A Very Canadian American Thanksgiving!

 Winter has officially come to Utah! Well that's a lie... it snowed a TON one day and then it all melted and hasn't snowed since. But that one wintery day was so fun and made me so excited for Christmas!

This is the tree covering our little deck! Look at all the snow! I took Bandit out to play cuz he loved the snow last year but I think he has changed his mind about the cold haha. He ran down the stairs and jumped right in the snow but didn't realize how deep it was! It was well above his head and I don't think he enjoyed being buried like that.... he hasn't touched the snow since. And although it was hilarious, I felt bad for him after cuz he was shivering so bad!!

So I drove to 7-11 and got some hot chocolate, rented Arthur Christmas, switched on the fire and cuddled with Bandit all day! It was the best! 

He was so freezing haha. He may be scarred for life now! 

But the real reason for this post is to blog about my much anticipated trip to Canada!!! I have been looking forward to going for so long, I hadn't been home in a YEAR! That's just crazy.... 
My aunt Sina and her family came up too so I just hitched a ride with them! My uncle Dustin drove the whole way! So I just got to sit and relax the entire way there... it was awesome. I will admit I was getting very sore and uncomfortable by the end but we made it! It was a short stay this time (wed-sun) but we packed a lot of fun into those few days! My fav part of coming back to Medicine Hat (besides seeing my family of course) is the all-you-can-eat sushi/japanese food restaurant JT's house! 

If you ever have a chance to go you NEED to.... it is to die for!! 

We got SO MUCH FOOD!!! This pic is only a fraction of it! They have to lose money when my family comes in cuz we get absolutely stuffed!

And then my mom and I discovered that the Med Hat Wal-Mart was having a black-friday sale!! I was so excited! We got there at 6:55 in the morning (they opened at 7) and were like 4th in line haha... not quite as intense as the black-friday sales I have been to in the states but it was still fun! I had to get there fast cuz they only had ONE of the thing I really wanted!! I got a 3D-blu ray player and speaker system half off!!! They are to go with the awesome christmas present my parents got us... our 3D TV!!! EEEE I'm so excited! So my first Canadian black friday was a success!

THEN on sat my mom threw me the best baby shower!! 


The food was delicious! I LOVE chocolate fountains! And aunt Kathy made the cutest puffed wheats in the shape of fooballs :)

SO many people came! It was so fun to see everyone and catch up while I stuffed my face yet again! If you are reading this and came to the shower THANK YOU!!! I still need to get all the pics from my aunt Sina!

Mom had a lot of fun little games to play too! My fav was "The Price Is Right". You had to guess the price of this basket filled with baby stuff and the winner got a prize! But the best part was I got to keep the basket! haha. Me and my little baby got SO SPOILED yet again! He is gonna be the cutest dressed baby I have ever seen! I can't wait :)

My trip home was delayed a day because of a BLIZZARD!!! But that just meant I got to miss work and spend another day with the fam... score! This trip was the longest Brian and I have been apart since we have been married haha, I think I survived though. I love Medicine Hat! Even if it is FREEZING!!! Only a couple more weeks until we go back, and this time for much longer! yay!

I am 31 weeks now! We are on the down slope!

My next doctor's appt is tomorrow!! And Spencer comes back from his mission tomorrow too!!! We are so excited to see him! I can't believe it has been 2 years! We will be going to St. George this weekend to hang out, it's gonna be awesome! 

I love holidays with family!
