Thanksgiving Break in the Rupe!

This past Thanksgiving I drove up with my boyfriend Bradley to spend some time with his family in Rupert, Idaho!!! I know you all must be so proud I am dating a good ol' Idaho boy! (hold applause) We had an amazing time, just chillin,eating tons of food, sleeping in and hanging out with the family.

Here we are on Thanksgiving Day!

This is us about to take a ride on his four wheeler! My very first time EVER driving one. I was scared out of my mind because of horror stories I have heard of people and crazy injuries...and we ALL know how Rosie would feel if I hurt myself again! (Love you mom :)!)Don't worry, we were very careful.

Don't I look like a natural? :) It was FREEZING COLD!!

My turn driving...we truly had a blast! :)

On Saturday after thanksgiving, I went with Bradley and his family to their church building in Acequia? Or something...haha. There they had the annual Jurgensmeier Family Christmas party! Woo WOo! It was a good time getting know his family and just playing some games.

One of the games involved groups of four blowing up balloons and putting them in pantyhose to make reindeer antlers. Our antlers (and some sweet moves by Bradley) sealed the win for us, along with some candy!

Me with the cutest reindeer there :) (Don't be embarassed Bradley ;))

All in all it was an awesome trip! Sorry I couldn't come up to Boise to see a lot of you guys, but hopefully I will see you all soon at Jessica's wedding. Yay! I cannot wait to go back to Virginia at Christmas and show Bradley my neck of the woods!

Are you really bringing that cute boy home for Thanksgiving? I can't wait! When are you coming?

Sounds like you had great fun! I don't know if we can duplicate the reindeer antlers here in Virginia?

Ha ha, love how 'natural' you looked in the one pic on the 4 wheeler, lol. Looks like such fun- just jealous you are going to be home so long over Christmas and we will miss it :(
