This year Thanksgiving was extra special for the Monson family because we were able to celebrate at my parent's new home in Midway. We have loved spending time up there. It's the perfect getaway that's not too far away. The food was wonderful and it was fun to catch up with relatives from my mom's side who joined us. My mom did a fabulous job decorating and because I was randomly feeling crafty, I helped with the place cards.
We had our dinner early in the afternoon, so everyone could head to their in-laws after. Gotta love multiple Thanksgiving dinners!

After dinner we were off to Thanksgiving #2 with the Ingebrigtsens, at Grammy and Grandad's house. Lots of running around, but we are so blessed to both come from wonderful families and we loved every minute of it!

Stein and Ashleigh contributed gummy worms to the meal - a little untraditional, but enjoyed by everyone.
So, Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This year I am especially grateful for my sweet husband Erik. Life is so much better with him. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday as well.
