We had a terrific Thanksgiving! We went over to our friends' house for dinner. It was so yummy. They have a smoker and smoked the turkey. It was so juicy and moist! Everything else was delicious. We made and brought the rolls, stuffing, and the pies. We were busy all morning making 2 pumpkin, an apple, and a pecan pie. Aaron makes the best pie crust of anyone I know! We stayed up late and played games and had pies. It was a great day. Friday, we got a couple of babysitters. First we went to lunch at a Vietnamese place that Aaron has been wanting me to try. He's been talking about "Pho" forever and so I finally got to try some. It's a soup and is really good! Then we went and bought a tripod for our camera. Later that night, at our church building, they were having the first of a series of classes to teach us old folks to dance. We did line dancing first. It was really fun! Aaron's a really cute dancer--you should see him move those hips!! Saturday, we headed to the coast. It was a beautiful day! We went to our best agate hunting beach, but the tide was super high! I got lucky and found a nice big one while I was traversing the big rocks, trying not to kill myself or Joshua! We didn't last too long there because Ar was hungry, Noah was being a beast, and Joshua was screaming because I had him facing me in the carrier and he wanted to face outward! So we headed to the cheese factory for cheese and ice cream. It was a really fun night!!

I was jealous enough of her awesome agate, that I was able to find some little ones. Sarah’s was cool; it was a piece of a geode type agate (once a hollow sphere). Kinda like the one the pro-agate hunter showed us all, but not so big.

I want to go agate hunting. I haven't been forever. I need to try pho now. How do you pronounce it, foe, or foo?

Sarah said...

It's kinda like "faa." But you have to say it like there's a question mark after it..."faa??" Silly huh!

meghan said...

Awesome, i'll have to find a place and try one sometime. Anyone know of any places in provo?

Heidi said...

I don't know of any good places in Provo, but I've been to some in Salt Lake. You'll want to go with someone who knows what they're doing because usually the people who work at the Vietnamese restaurant can't help you much and what you order in the pho makes a big difference. I've always been told it's pronounced "fuh". I've seen a few places around here so maybe we can all go at Christmas.

Yes it's pronounced "Fuh?", Sarah was going for the soft A's..."Faa?"
