Thanksgiving in San Diego!

Last week we got the opportunity as a family to drive {uhh} down to San Diego to spend Thanksgiving watching Kali play soccer and spend time with The Dixons. It was a much needed break for everyone! I cant express how awesome it was to have my WHOLE family home for Thanksgiving this year.. i think it has been at least 3 years since we spent it together. I love my family more than anything. We are at a fun time in our age differences and we all get along very well. I love my siblings and look up to them all... i think this trip made me appreciate each of them so much more! Here are some fun pictures from the week!

The Hansen and Dixon Crew on the Beach on Thanksgiving day

First Family picture in a long time!! we all look great after spending the whole day in the ocean!

Meet my Aunt Cyd. She is so awesome! It was fun spending time with her and catching up on life and such! I love Cyd!
Me and East got in a little war on the beach.. we both "white washed" each other with the sand? i dunno it wasnt a good feeling!

Probably one of my favorite pictures of the whole trip..

Soo cute. Playing in the Ocean all day definitely kept us all entertained.

Sooo happy to have my big brother home! i love him so much!

Little Teagy.. will always be my man!!

Oh how Benjamin was missed on our trip.. love that kid and miss him so much!

i love St George!!

wanna know why?? because i went swimming on November 18... it was so warm and i had no school. Hallelujah!

New Roomie.

Yup the rumors are true. i got two new roommates last week and to be completely honest, i was not excited about it. New roomies meant no more extra bedrooms, extra refrigerator space and all that jazz. welp it has turned out alright and the girls are fun. i never really see one of them, but i am sure she has a tender heart, even if she doesnt know my name. psh.....

So on sunday we decided to decorate cookies for fall/winter... and somehow we ended up covered in flour. I dunno how it started? i didnt do it.. thats for sure! It was a good little bonding experience but our house was a disaster after!

Lesson Learned: I am going to have severe wrinkles when i get old!! ahh hopefully the second coming happens before that so i don't have to go through that stage of my life. JOY!

i know this may sound weird but i LOVE Halloween. It is seriously one of my favorite holidays. So needless to say i was super excite   ............oh wait until i found out that i worked Friday til close (11) and saturday til volume (just whenever it stops being busy). I didnt think it would be too busy on saturday considering it was a holiday that is
 celebrated mostly at night... BOY WAS I WRONG!! we were packed! and i was MAD!!

Well since i worked on friday til pretty late i had already made plans to drive up to SUU and meet up with a bunch of friends at the Howl. I went last year and i was stoked to go again this year. i figured i would get off early and be up there by 11:30. Wrong again. I didnt get out of work until like 11:05! rip off! I frantically drove to cedar and after a series of mishaps, i finallyy got there. i walked in when a lovely lady informed me that she was no longer selling tickets and that i couldnt go in. She told me they stopped selling tickets at 12:00. i looked down at my phone and it said... 12:03!! i tried everything in the book. and still she wouldnt let me in. She even replied "i dont really care where you drove here from" after i explained i had just driven from St george. what a B WORD! But it didnt end up being horribly bad.. I met these girls that were just as mad as i was.. and we had  fun sitting and watching my friends dance while i sat 10 yds away from the dance floor under the exit sign. LOVELY!

 After the dance was over I met up with my friends Brady, Chase, and Clint and we went back to their house and hung out all night. Me and Brady have known each other since we were little cuz our dad's coached baseball together. We have become really good friends since we moved away to ..somewhat close.. colleges. I had a blast with those boys and i was grateful for their hospitality!

On Saturday i once again got off work late, so as i hurried to get ready while Brady, Ammon, Clint, and Drake, were in my living room waiting for me. Finallyy we decided to go to a party. Wow. crrrrazy. Tonz of drunk people. probably not the best place to be, but we did meet some very interesting people and had a fun time pretending to be drunk. i was super nervous that this one kid was gonna throw up on me---i have NEVER seen someone that drunk. seriously he was GONE.

So me and the boys left and caused some mischief. We threw cups of water and drunk people walking out of various parties.. and we almost got in a fight with a Cholo. He thought a kid we knew "mooned us" (when in reality he was wearing one of those fake butt costumes) he said "yo i got my hyna in the car i'm gonna go beat the %#@$ out of him." ahh we were freaking out! but it made for a great story. unfortunately for you... only the short version can be told. :)
(Ammon is hiding...)
Thanks to these boys i had an awesome Halloween. It was soo fun. Thank you Lovers!! you are the best.
