My cute in-laws surprised us last minute with a visit over Thanksgiving. I was unfortunately working most of their visit during the weekend, but we still jammed in as much fun as we could. We also went out to eat on Thanksgiving since I worked that day, and also wasn't going to make Devin or my mother-in-law cook a turkey in our apartment. We made dinner reservations at Mimi's Cafe instead. Eating out was actually a lot of fun!! Very easy too. I like a traditional Thanksgiving dinner (or two---love eating at multiple parties!), but this was honestly just as much fun!
(strangers could look at Devin and Whitney and initially wonder if they're husband and wife, but once you get closer you realize they are actually clones of each other and it is more likely they are related :))

(opening his Christmas chest books.......one a night until Christmas Eve. Or in our case, one a night until we left for Salt Lake, so we started early.)
We also did our annual visit to the Mesa Temple Christmas lights. Always a fun event, however we seem to pick the worst nights to go in regards to weather every year. This year we pretty much got rained out, so it was a very short visit!
The holidays are the best (and fastest!) time of year! Sad to see them go, but the holiday season comes around again before we know it. Might as well start Christmas shopping now! :)
