Wednesday: Rachelle and I cooked Thanksgiving dinner. It turned out super yummy. Thankfully Rachelle did the turkey but I made the mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts, gluten free stuffing and the salad. I was really proud of us. Dave's brother George and his kids Emeric and Seneca came down from Idaho and had Thanksgiving dinner with us. It was a blast.
The "ghetto dessert"! This is the chocolate mousse torte we made on Tuesday. It looked and tasted pretty good.
Emeric and the whipped cream.
Thanks to Grandpa and Grandma Huntington for this Thanksgiving bib!
On Thursday: Dave and Jeff went and played football with a bunch of guys in our ward. Then we said goodbye to George, Seneca and Emeric. In the afternoon we went to my Great Grandpa's nursing home and had Thanksgiving dinner with him and a bunch of my family. It was really nice to visit with everyone and see Grandpa.

Happy Birthday Kaisa! I can't tell you how much I miss you! My life is definitely not as silly being this far from you! I have to rely on Dave for my dumb jokes now. Stinking of you always. Make yourself a cheesecake from me. :) Love you!

The boys wore Ute colors to church just to gloat after the big game.
World's most ghetto Chocolate mousse tort. My spring form pan is at Kaisa's house in Santa Rosa so Rachelle and I improvised with a pie plate, foil and some yarn. I will take a picture of the real beauty of it tomorrow.
And that's pretty much what I've been doing. Not much more than resumes and Gilmore Girls. I am planning on calling every Allstate office in Salt Lake on Monday (I figure Thanksgiving weekend would be a bad time to call) and attempting to find a day job. It's where I have my experience. Yes, I am completely crushed that I will only get to spend 3 hours a day with my child but I have to do it and it's only temporary. Dave will switch to looking for night jobs. Hopefully this will help us both find something. And fast!

The bad news: some of you have gotten text messages or phone calls letting you know but for the rest of our family and friends back home, the bad news is we will most likely not be going home for the holidays. As much as this disappoints everyone else (not to mention how awful we feel and how sad we are) we think that canceling our trip is the only thing that will help us find jobs. Who wants to hire someone that is already planning to take the holidays off. We will have a credit from our tickets so once both of us get settled in a job and can take time off we will fly out. This isn't definite, but we're pretty sure about it. Please pray/cross your fingers that we will find jobs soon. Even canceling our trip is no guarantee.
