We all need to talk about Thanksgiving, so I figured this was as good a place as any to discuss plans. We have all kind of discussed having a big get together this year in Wyoming, being especially important if Dave comes out. What a rare treat to have all 7 Wright brothers and sisters together for Thanksgiving! Anyone know when the last time that happened? Or even the last time we were all in the same room together?
Anyway, we have also discussed recreating the fun we had last year of all going up to Wyoming to watch Twilight together- bet we can get dad to go this year (now that he's read the books).
I would like to add one more festivity into the mix-- Amy and I discussed this when I went up there last weekend, and I have now gotten the go ahead. Anyway, we were discussing good sundays to get Elinor blessed, and one of the only possibilities was Thanksgiving weekend. Our plans for Thanksgiving were complicated, since a few of Rob's siblings usually only come out for Thanksgiving, and go somewhere else for Christmas, our one chance to see them over the holidays is gone if we leave, and especially this year- everyone wants to meet Elinor. We decided we would need to divide our time between Utah and Wyoming, spending Wed, thurs, and fri morning in one place, and the weekend with the other. Rob was leaning towards spending the first part in Wyoming, and then driving home early Fri and the rest with his fam. I was ok with that as long as we could fit New Moon in on Wed. Anyways, after Amy and I talked, doing the blessing that weekend made more and more sense- most of Rob's family would be around too. Amy is willing to drive anyone of her family that would like to go, out that Saturday (it would be a quick trip of course, but- eh). Mom and dad can make it too. Anyway, we got the ok from our bishop to do the blessing that week, so looks like it is (tentatively) on.
Here's what we need to discuss:
1. Is everyone planning on making it out to Wyoming for Thanksgiving? (Sue, I don't think I have heard you say one way or another, so I wasn't sure).
2. For everyone that is planning on going, it looks like everyone may be hauling out early, so if you were planning on staying out there until Sun, you may be lonely.
3. Can everyone that is interested in the "New Moon experience" make it out there in time for a movie on Wed night? If not, I suppose we can discuss possibly doing it on Sat night now in Salt Lake... Haley, that could throw a major wrench in your plans since I am thinking you weren't able to make it to Utah for the blessing.
4. Anyone interested in attending Elinor's blessing, our church starts at 9:00 am.
