A Fun and Eventful Weekend!

I just love Thanksgiving! These weekend was such a good one! We were able to close a little early on Wednesday, and then we were closed Thursday and Friday as well. It was awesome! Unfortunately, since Devin hasn't hit his 90 days yet, he still had to work 40 hours this week, so he ended up working both Friday and Saturday. That was kind of a bummer, but luckily he works in the morning so he was able to get off in the early afternoon. Thanksgiving was a lot of fun. We went up to Woods Cross to eat dinner with Devin's family at 1. His immediate family wasn't there, but his extended family was so it was good to see them again. We went to his uncle's house and had a delicious Thanksgiving dinner. We then came back to eat with my family. We had a smaller group than we usually have, but it was still a lot of fun. We ate yummy food and played some fun games (even though some did get a little heated...). We had a little competition last year to see who could gain the most weight from all the food, and of course, Devin had to beat his record from last year. This year he ate 11.7 pounds of food. Can you believe that?! He was definitely feeling it for the rest of the night. Friday was a fun day. I ended up going to Home Depot in the morning to get a grill that was on sale and also some Christmas decorations. This was the first year that I have ever gone shopping on the day after Thanksgiving. It's definitely not my favorite thing to do... Then I helped my mom put up her Christmas decorations. I love Christmas decorations!! We always put them up on the day after Thanksgiving and it is so much fun. My mom has quite the collection of nativities. That is definitely one of my favorite things. Here are a few of my favorites:

This one is my all time favorite. My mom and dad painted this one, and they have had it for a long time. It always goes on top of the piano. :)

She always tries to collect nativities that are different. To give you an idea of how many she has, here are a couple pictures of some she has in the living room. And this isn't even all of them.

I just love her collection of nativities! Setting up her Christmas decorations took us pretty much all day, but it was a lot of fun. Her house looks really cute. Saturday I went and saw Twilight again with Nancy, Tricia, and Kara. And then Devin's cousins had a "cousins party" so we went up to Bountiful for that. We played some games and ate some food. It was fun! Thanks Krista and Jay! December is going to be a busy month for us. We are moving into our apartment this weekend. Yay! Then we are going to Colorado next weekend to visit Devin's family again. We are excited for that. Then we just have lots of family Christmas parties. It is going to be a busy month, but it's gonna be a lot of fun! We hope you all had a good Thanksgiving and that any holiday plans are going well!

רציתי לחלוק אותכם במשהו שעברתי אחרי הפיגוע בדולפינריום. במהלך שנה אחרי הפיגוע, הרגשתי מדוכאת, ללא שמחת חיים, עייפה ומדוכדכת. עם טיפולים רפואיים רגילים לא יכולתי להשתקם ולכן פניתי ל- [b][url=http://www.maker.co.il/3_15707/%D7%9E%D7%90%D7%9E%D7%A8/%D7%9B%D7%9C-%D7%94%D7%A2%D7%95%D7%91%D7%93%D7%95%D7%AA-%D7%A2%D7%9C-%D7%A0%D7%A4%D7%A9-%D7%94%D7%90%D7%93%D7%9D-%D7%95%D7%A2%D7%99%D7%A1%D7%95%D7%99-%D7%A8%D7%A4%D7%95%D7%90%D7%99-(%D7%9E%D7%A1%D7%90%D7%92%60).html]עיסוי[/url][/b] רפואי אלטרנטיבי. ייעצו לי על מעסה מקצועי מ-Spa-Vip.co.il - עיסוי עד הבית, אשר מכיל מסאז שוודי משחרר במיוחד אשר עורר לי את החושים תוך טיפול אחד בלבד. אין לי מילים לתאר את השינוי אותו עברתי, אומנם זה היה טיפול מסאג איורוודה ראשון, השתפר לי המצב הרוח, פיזרתי את השיער ויצאתי מה- [b][url=http://www.academics.co.il/Articles/Article12945.aspx]מסאג[/url][/b]' עם כוחות חדשים, שמחה ומוכנה להמשך.

[b][url=http://www.tapuz.co.il/blog/ViewEntry.asp?EntryId=1679344]עיסוי שוודי[/url][/b] הוא עיסוי המתאפיין ב ריח של קטורת, נרות וריח של קטורת. ההתחלה של עיסוי היא מגע מפנק על המגבת אחרי שחשפנו את הגוף מכף רגל ועד ראש. מריחת שמן חם מכף רגל ועד הראש, לאחר מכן תנועה עדינה ומלטפת מכף רגל ועד ראש ובחזרה. לאחר מספר תנועות מפנקות מתחיל הטיפול בצידו השני של הגוף, לאחר התנועות על צידו השני יש תהליך של לחיצות רפואיות מכיוון שהגוף התרגל למגע מפנק ומרגיע וזה גרם לשרירים להרפות מעט... כל זה בטיפול ספא מפנק של עיסוי עד בית הלקוח.

אני לא האמנתי שדברים כאלו יכולים לקרות עד אשר התענגתי עם מסאג שוודי ברמה כזאת, המעסה המקצועי הגיע עד לביתי עם מגע שלא הכרתי אשר לא תיארתי שיכול להיות. ממליצה לכל אחד ואחת אשר מעוניינים ב [b][url=http://israblog.nana10.co.il/blogread.asp?blog=682132]מסאז[/url][/b]', עיסוי או סתם פינוק מלטף בסוף שבוע על Spa-VIP.co.il.

Many times something can seem wonderful on the surface but when you get down to the meat of the issue it is not so great. This happens more often then not when people fail to read the fine print about online casino bonuses. While there are a good many online casino bonuses out there, which ones are actually worth the time and hassle to take part in? Lets take a look at some of them.
[url=http://www.casinolesoleil.com]online casino[/url] http://www.casinolesoleil.com casino At download-based, you download software which connects to the casino, and play games through the software. Often the software can be downloaded in the back round while you enter your player information.
[url=http://www.redlotuscasino.com]casino[/url] http://www.redlotuscasino.com casino Betting is still very much present, even when playing online casinos. You will be required to place your money on an account, and this will be transferred to the winner via PayPal or Neteller. So before handing in cash, check out the website, first! If they have more members and a good reputation, you can almost be assured that you get your moneys worth. Make sure that before downloading any of software an online casino is offering, there has to be test run of the product first. You have to be able to play for free before you download the software, since this may help in protecting you from fraud in the end. An example of this software is the Cryptologic, is safe and can be trusted, since it is listed in the Nasdaq. [url=http://www.triumphcasino.com]casino[/url] http://www.triumphcasino.com casino http://www.affrewards.com [url=http://www.affrewards.com]casino affiliate program[/url] Bingo is a beautiful game of luck, which involves patience, rapid coordination between hearing and searching out the numbers and lots of fun. [url=http://www.bingokisses.com]bingo[/url] [url=http://www.bingoeuphoria.com]bingo[/url] bingo bingo http://www.bingokisses.com http://www.bingoeuphoria.com Bingo is usually played in special halls where many players can play at the same time. The actual fun is the tension building up seeing other players closer and closer to the finish line. However, with the advent of the Internet, BINGO has gone online as well. There are many ways to play on the net, though the basics remain the same. You will have to complete a given pattern before anyone else in order to win. Over the net, you need not shout the computer will flash it out for you. Some online games also have chat attached to the games where you can speak with other players online and have fun right from your home, office or any other place where you can get on the net. Chatting is a great way to meet new people and pick up the tips and tricks.
