I always head down to St. George for Thanksgiving. This year was no different. I got down there Wednesday night after quite the drive complete with a 45 minute stop in Filmore for a bathroom stop and some food (at Larry's Drive In). Grabbing something to eat took a little longer than expected, but we weren't in too big of a hurry. I went down with a couple of friends which made the drive so nice.

I got up Thursday morning and went for a long run to try to burn off some of the millions of calories I knew I would be eating. The rest of the fam including Marsha and Gale and their two youngest girls started showing up. We had a delicious meal (my grandma is a great cook even if she thinks it's not good) followed by some good family fun.

We spent a couple of days in St. George before heading to Vegas for a couple days. We did a little shopping but avoided most of the Black Friday shopping/"deals". Is it really a good deal if you have to get up before 4am to get it? We kept the tradition of going to the craft fair. I got some good ideas for craft projects.

I have so much to be thankful for. Even though the holiday was over a week ago, I couldn't let it go without posting about how blessed I really am. Compared to all the craziness going on in the world these days, I am one lucky girl!
