Thanksgiving we spent in Kuna with Luke's family. It was sooo relaxing and much needed. I very much look forward to every holiday break. I was also able to meet some of Luke's extended family as well as some old Alaskan friends. I LOVE hearing all of Luke's dad's (Marc) hunting stories, which I think he loves to tell ;)
The day after we got back, Christie and Jeff joined us for a Christmas tree hunt up near Island Park in Targhee National Forest (no worries, we made sure to get a tag - no felonies here) It was so beautiful, particularly by the river we came across.
Christie and Jeff found theirs pretty fast but Luke and I weren't having much luck. Either I liked one or he didn't. It soon was dark when we finally found the one we both agreed on, that's how we knew it was the one :)
Along with holiday traditions comes along gingerbread house making. Christie, Jeff, Luke and I pulled together and created what I think are some pretty dang good looking houses - considering they are made out of graham crackers....shh!
