Yes, I'm a little late but I thought I should finally put up Thanksgiving pictures (but my storage quota has been met...whatever that means).  Josh, Charlotte and I took our first family vacation to the hot state of Arizona to stay with Tahnee and Tyler.  It was a lot of fun.  Tyler was sick when we arrived, which was a bummer but that didn't stop our fun and him meeting Charlotte for the first time. 

Tahnee and I made our first homemade Apple pie.  It was actually really fun to make.  And I didn't even taste it :(   We went over to Josh's aunt and uncle's house with cousins as well.  It was great company and great food.  Tyler stayed behind, but we brought him plenty of food.

At 9:00 pm, Josh and I went to Target for some Black Friday shopping.  We were very shocked to see the crowd.  We have done Black Friday shopping the last couple years and have never seen crowds like this.  Arizona people know how to shop!  We got a few things and waited in line for an hour!!   Then we went back and got Tahnee and her and I went to the Scottsdale mall at midnight.  We thought it was a little empty and after walking the mall (with a bunch of teenagers) we looked up the hours and it didn't open til 6 am!  So we went to the mall Tahnee works at in Chandler and a few other stores. We didn't get back home til 6:30 am!  Then we hung out at their place and went back out shopping around 5:00 pm back to Scottsdale.  It was a fun day and we got some great deals.  To be honest, I usually shop for myself on Black Friday.  I got some fun stuff for Charlotte and I. 

The next day Tahnee wasn't feeling well but we still managed to have fun.  The boys saw a couple movies and Tahnee and I went shopping and hung out.  We decided to leave Saturday night opposed to Sunday (our original plan) to miss traffic.  We made it home in five hours.  Thanks Josh for driving the whole way.  I wish I could post pictures.  Maybe I'll put some on facebook.

Thanks Tahnee and Tyler for letting us stay with you.  Can't wait to have them for a week in January!!  Thanks to the Christensen's for hosting a wonderful Thanksgiving!
