Thanksgiving Thoughts 2011


Jordan and I had a great time in Boise for Thanksgiving with the Sorensen Family.  Our Thanksgiving was full of everything a good Thanksgiving should have: yummy food, family, puzzles, games, crafts, movies, and rest.

Thanksgiving Thoughts:

1.  This was my first ever trip to Boise.

2.  Grandpa Sorensen taught me how to make frames in his shop.  I made 4 frames and I love them!  You'd think I'd want a break from woodworking, but I did actually spend a few hours in the shop.  This project was a bit more relaxing though and I didn't feel rushed at all (unlike every second spent in the school shop these days).

3.  One night we watched 17 Miracles which Jordan and I hadn't seen yet.  We really liked it.  It was a great reminder about what we should be thankful for in our lives.

4.  Another night we watched Planes, Trains, and Automobiles which is a Sorensen Thanksgiving tradition.  I hadn't seen that movie in a long time and it was just as funny as ever.  Our favorite line this time around was "I'd trade you pillows but I'm allergic to sponge."

5.  26 people under one roof and we didn't feel cramped or crouded.  Grandma and Grandpa's house is perfect for this kind of holiday.

6.  We didn't participate in any Black Friday shopping.  It sure was nice sleeping in though!

7.  One thing that the Sorensen's really like is card games.  Upon entering this family I immediately had to learn how to play Screwy Louie and Rook.  We played LOTS of card games this weekend.

8.  Jordan's favorite food was the stuffing.

9.  Kian's birthday is today.  He is officially 8!  We celebrated last night with some Mud Pie and presents.

10.  Overall it was a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We're home now and are ready to jump back into these last few weeks of the semester.  Bring it on!


  1. Fun fun! If you're as busy as I am these next two weeks I don't know if we'll see much of each other but hopefully!

  2. Sounds like an amazing break! As always, love your pictures. P.S. I'll email you later this week about a giveaway that I am super excited for.

  3. What an amazing sounding/looking family. I think that kind of good wholesome fun is the best, and frame making? Very cool! :)


  4. I LOVE Rook--we literally did a huge Rook tournament for our Thanksgiving. Glad to see another family enjoying the same tradition!

  5. 17 miracles is awesome! And I love your pictures! My hubster and I just bought a sweet camera on black Friday! we're beginners but i hope to get mad skills like you :)
