Thanksgiving Weekend


I pretty much stole this post from my sister Rachel's AMAZING blog because we were together and did the same things all weekend. Thanks Rach!!- Thanksgiving was so much fun this year. I always love Thanksgiving because it gives me a good excuse to play with my sisters and family ALL weekend. and when I say all weekend I mean it. 

Rach and I planned on having our families {Drew,Tay and Capri} sleep over at my Mom's house the night before Thanksgiving because the Turkey Trot {a race my family has run every Thanksgiving for the past 5 years} was so early in the morning. 

We decided Thanksgiving night to sleep over again for Black Friday shopping
and the sleep overs turned into a 4-day slumber party at my parents house and we had SO much fun.

Wednesday: 
Cheesecake Factory with the cousins, shopping ALL day, dodging people at the grocery
store and checking and re-checking grocery lists for Thanksgiving dinner.

Thursday: 
Turkey Trot race,  a long nap by the fire,
baking, cooking, cleaning and spending time
with amazing family, playing games and watching Christmas Vacation.

Friday: 
shopping with all the girls, boys shopping at who knows where, Christmas
lights at Temple Square, Hot Cocoa and Z-Tejas. 

Saturday: 
Lounging in our sweats all day and just relaxing, Me, Tay, Amy, Rach and Drew getting stir
 crazy and using the new app Find My Friends {great for stalking your sisters}
to find my little sis Megs at her friends house,spying on her and her little boyfriends, Drew being chased down by a high-school footballer
and a text from meg that said: "you all are creeps!"

Sunday: 
Church, playing with the family and sigh of relief from Drew and Tay that the slumber-
party extravaganza at the Skalla home was finally over

Capri's Blessing Day

     Capri was blessed on October 9th. This was such a special day. I have been looking forward to this day for such a long time!! When I first found out I was pregnant and there was a baby blessing in my ward I would get so excited for it and I would lean over to Taylor and say, "are you ready for that??" and he would say, "yes, I can't wait, but it seems like FOREVER away!!" Well it came faster than we thought!! These past three months with Capri have been AMAZING, and they have flown by! She looked so beautiful in her blessing her dress. We had all of our family come to the blessing which meant so much to us. Tay did a great job blessing her, and I am so grateful to have such a wonderful husband! We feel so blessed to have the gospel in our lives.






Halloween

Halloween was so much fun this year. The best part was dressing up Capri! We had so many fun parties  that consisted of eating lots and lots of candy and treats, ( i may have had one too many pumpkin sugar cookies) my Dad's homemade chili which was AMAZING this year, and hanging out with friends and family. Here are a few pictures from our fun filled week of Halloween!
