Thanksgiving and a Wedding

Well, wordpress inserted all of my pictures in from last to first, so that’s cool.  And you know I’m too lazy to change them all around.  It’s just not worth it, you guys.  So here we are.

We took a trip to Utah at the end of November last year so that we could be there for Thomas and Madi’s wedding (Mike’s youngest brother).  And because Bready Thanksgivings are DELICIOUS – Gladys’ cooking is top notch.  I went out early with Jude, of course, and we had so much fun seeing and hanging out with everyone.

This was saying goodbye to Grandpa on the last day.  It’s always sad saying goodbye.


The newlyweds.  I think they’ve been dating since they were 15 or 16.  Something like that.  Sometimes it’s meant to be…

Michelle’s pregnant belly was so cute.


Jude was always super helpful, like usual.


I can’t possibly not be working on a project at any given point in time, and Michelle had recently bought a sewing machine, so while I was there I taught her how to use it and how to make these cute half-aprons and some little baby skirts.  Gladys got her own Christmas themed half-apron too.

Mike’s cousin Morgan was on her mission when Jude was born so she came over to meet him one day while we were there.


One of my good friends here in Dallas is Diane Goggins, and her husband’s parents moved in down the street from Mike’s parents and hang out with them a lot.  Diane was in town for Thanksgiving too so it was fun spending some time together at both our in-laws.  This is Diane’s niece pulling Jude around the house.

I made Michelle and Jordan open our Christmas gift to them while we were there.  I spent so much time on it that I felt I deserved to see it opened in person (selfish? Whatevs.)  It was hard to give away but I think they’ve enjoyed it.

My friend Mandy and her husband and daughter, Caroline.  They’re still hanging out in Provo these days.  I’ll be sad when they move and I can’t see her anymore when we visit Utah.

The wedding day.


Mike’s cousin, Eric.  When they both have beards and their hair in the same style, they look creepily alike.  He and his wife have two kids now and we have never met each other’s kids because she was out of town when we were there.  It’s crazy.


Gladys and Mike’s Aunt Stacie (Morgan and Eric’s mom…can you tell?)


Jude bawled every time his Great-Grandpa Bready was around.  It was really hilarious.


Still recovering from seeing GG Bready.

I got to see my friend Marisa for the first time in several years.

Why do grandbabies love their grandmas so much?  Grandmas must be magical or something.


Jude was being a weirdo in the airport on our way to Utah.

You could say he tends to draw quite a bit of attention to himself.
