Turkey Bowls and Christmas Trees


So this year for Thanksgiving we went to Mesa.  It was a blast and included great fun including delicious dinner, the 10k turkey trot, night out with old friends, movies, skipbo, and more.  By far though, the highlight for Jeremy, every year, is the Turkey Bowl.  All of his friends from middle school, high school and after his mission meet to play football the morning after Thanksgiving.  It is mostly fun to go to because all of the guys get so excited.  The wives were all laughing because after the turkey bowl, everything else the rest of the year is a let down... Anyways it was way fun and Jeremy made some awesome plays.  He limped around the rest of the weekend from his soreness from the game... Here are some pictures:

Pretty sure jeremy threw a touchdown here...so proud
Notice the torn shirt.  They don't mess around


This year we got a tree!  Last year we were too busy with finals and then we went home for Christmas so we never got a tree.  This year however I was determined to get one.  We found one super cheap on Craig's List and then got cheap ornaments.  Jeremy was very concerned with the Tree Topper and a ornament star was the only thing I could find.  So we had to duct tape it to the top.  The next morning it had fallen off, so now it just kind of sits on top...



the bow Jeremy tried tying for the top of the tree...

The guy we bought it from even gave us a sweet Christmas Tree Skirt.

Oh, you spoil me! Another post! I love that Jeremy put so much effort into the tree topper. Having a Christmas tree makes a huge difference, I must say. Merry Christmas!
