Thanksgiving Eve

Tuesday evening Jim and I flew to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with the kids and Jim's family.  Clark picked us up from the airport and we headed down to Highland where we were staying with Wynn and Emily. The girls drove out that evening and spent the night too.

We headed out first thing Wednesday morning to do the grocery shopping for Thanksgiving dinner as we were hosting dinner.  We got it done and then headed back to Emily's to start cooking.  With all my helpers (Jim, Emily, Cali and Tessa) we got it done in no time but we did make a big mess!

Wednesday evening we went to dinner with all the "grown up" Wilkes - which was just about everyone 16 and above.  David treated us all to a delicious dinner at LaJolla Groves at the Riverwoods.  Thank you David!!

It was so fun to all be together - we are thankful for our family!!

After evenings like this we always wished we lived closer but are grateful we get to visit often!

After dinner we walked down to the Provo Beach Resort where Logan treated everyone to ice cream!

As we walked down to ice cream we saw Santa sitting all by himself in his little house so we stopped to say hi and have a picture!

Then it was back to Wynn and Emily's and time for bed because we had a lot more cooking to do the next day!
