Yay for Thanksgiving

I had so much fun at Ella and Charles house. It was a very long drive, but I had so much fun!!! (I didn't even realize that I had repeated myself about having fun.) We knew them when they were in our English ward in Japan. I hadn't seen them since I was in 2nd grade. They came and stayed over at our house a couple of weeks ago to go to the temple. Ella and Charles were as shy as I had remembered them. But all of the sudden they opened up and were just as crazy as me and Tashi. Which made me like them even more - they're just like me when it comes to making friends. I'm really shy around people until I get to know them a little bit. Age didn't really matter. We both love Hollister.
Their kids have the coolest names!!! Eleanor (Ella), Charles, Lucinda (Lucy), Isabella (Ibby), and Phineas (Phin). Baby Phin is the darlingest thing ever. Even Gracie likes him.

Somebody brought a frogs-eye salad to the dinner. Luckily, because aunty gina told me there was pineapple in it a few days ago, I was able to stay as far away from that as I could.

We played so many games. We jumped on the trampoline. And had a potty parade (everyone has to go to the bathroom at the same time after Thanksgiving dinner). They live in a 1918 house. It's so cool. Their family has the most amazing hot chocolate ever. And we got to have Japanese food for dinner the night before Thanksgiving. I felt at home. There's nothing like laughing your guts out with people you don't know very well and having contests to see who can eat the most whipped cream.

Yay for $7 purchases at Hollister

You just want to hold him

Me and Ella have the exact same pair of jeans, we didn't buy them at the same time though

Our Hollister coats even looked alike. With our matching jeans. This picture makes me look short

We're folding napkins!!!

Noah and Ibby playing with Fisher Price pilgrims

Our moms bought Mia and Lucy matching shirts at Gap

The boys just played basketball like the whole time


Charles "goes when he goes" haha I couldn't fix the red eye in that one eye

I took this picture on my mom's camera. I like the lighting

Baby Phin and his mommy

My dad on the computer. Like always

The teenager table

Hope you had as fun of a Thanksgiving Day as I did. We go to the Rodenbergs on Saturday after they get back from Oklahoma yayyayayayayyayayayaya
