Our Turkey Day!

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! Our Thanksgiving was fun! We stayed here at our house and had my mom, dad, grandma, some of my uncles and cousins over for our wonderful feast. It was nice, we made the rolls(my mom makes the best rolls), a vegetable tray, mashed potatoes, gravy and a few pies! My Grandma and Aunt Susan made the rest of the stuff. I had fun working with my mom in the kitchen too. I was sad that I wasn't able to be with my brothers and sisters, but it was still a good day. My mom made these cute little turkeys out of cookies, frosting, chocolate covered cherries and candy corn. They are so cute and my kids loved them!


My family doesn't really have a family tradition when it comes to Thanksgiving, but I always think of all the things I am grateful for. There are so many things, and I am not sure I have ever written them down. Here are a few!


I have an absolutely amazing HUSBAND! He is such a hard worker and does so much for our family! He is an incredible FATHER! He is so good at helping around the house, telling me how beautiful I am even if I haven't showered and my hair is gross and I have no make-up on and it is like 4:00 in the afternoon and I am still in pajamas. He is my best friend and I love him so much it hurts! I feel so blessed to be his wife and have him for ETERNITY!










I am so Thankful for my FAMILY, and not just my husband and children. I have such wonderful parents, siblings, and inlaws! I am so grateful to have a good relationship with all of them. I love you guys!

I am so unbelievably grateful for my children and the opportunity to be a mom. I love my kids, they are my world and although there are moments when I want to scream and give them away, I wouldn't trade them for anything! I do not like what having kids has done to my body, but they are so worth it. When I look at my body and want to cry, all I have to do is look at my adorable kids and it makes everything better.
I am also so grateful for my Savior and to know that I am a daughter of God! To know where I came from and where I want to be. I love to be inside the Temple. I am thankful for them and I love knowing that because of them I can be with my family FOREVER!
I am so grateful for all of my friends too! You guys are the best! I love you all and hope that your Thanksgiving was as good as mine!

I must say, that i miss you too!! I miss your kids! I don't even feel like I know Kendall. I don't know Sydney or Christie. I miss everyone so badly. Especially around the Holidays! Paul has had to work the last 3 Thanksgivings. So its made for a pretty sad day, knowing that all my family is getting together to celebrate and I am home alone. I miss everyone so much! I love you! I am so glad you had a good Thanksgiving. Much love to you!!

Hey, I found you! Your family is so cute, and it was fun reading through your posts. Your little Connor is so sweet, and reading about him and going to school was touching and a little sad. Thinking you don't know your child like you want to and understand what they want you to know is so hard, although I haven't experienced it to the degree you do. But he knows you love him and I think they appreciate when you try to understand them. You're a good mom.

I don't know if it's because you were one of my first friends married, but for some reason your announcement pic has always stood out in my mind. Whenever I have taken pics for other people, or when we did ours, I think of yours!

Maybe it's just cause it's so stinkin cute!
