For Thanksgiving we got to go to NC and visit my family.  As always, I love being at home. And I love my family.  To say that we had a fun trip would be an understatement.  While we were there we did many fun things like going to the Biltmore House, playing/watching the turkey bowl, eating, of course, spending time together, visiting my mammaw, and putting together a Christmas package for my brother who is serving a mission in Chile.

Here are some pictures of our trip to Biltmore. The Biltmore House is the largest house in America. The house is 175,000 square feet with 8,000 acres of land. It consists of 250 rooms that include 35 guest and family rooms, and 43 bathrooms. The basement has a swimming pool, gymnasium and changing rooms, bowling alley, servants' quarters, kitchens, and more. It was especially gorgeous all decorated for Christmas. After we toured the house we shopped in the shops and got hot chocolate. It was a blast. Thanks Mom and Dad!
Last time we were at Biltmore we took a picture like this so we had to carry on the tradition. Our gymnastics was a little rusty this time though.

Here are more pictures of our trip. 
Madi woke up from her nap just in time to eat Thanksgiving dinner. This is the only pic we got because we are all so busy eating the yummy food.
She would NOT sit down for her bath. Oh well. 
Madi loves her Grandpa.
She gets her beautiful blue eyes from her Mema.
Visiting Mammaw. Four generation pic. 
On our way back to Utah our flight got cancelled.  The only seats they had left on the next flight were first class.  We were livid.....ok not really. First class was awesome.  If you have ever wondered if the extra money for first class seats is worth it...it is. The extra space made a big difference, we got a yummy meal, and they treated us like we were a big deal.  We were definitely spoiled and it will be hard to go back to coach next time we fly.
