Thanksgiving Fun

I realize I haven't posted much. My work schedule this quarter is crazy, but there is an end in sight! Three weeks left in the quarter and we have been promised we will be fully staffed in January. I won't know what to do without a 50 hour work week! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We went to Matt's parents home in Parker, Colorado and had a fabulous dinner (thanks Mom!!) Matt's Anderson Grandparents were visiting from Idaho and all in all, it was a pretty good visit.
Reagan waiting so very patiently for the feast to begin!
Ever year we celebrate by wearing headbands with feathers or Pilgrim hats. We have relatives that actually came over on the Mayflower!

I laugh because Ben is a Pilgram and Angela is an Indian. What does that make their little ones??
Hannah had such a great time eating all the yummy food!

After the amazing food, the little girls and I went on a Thanksgiving stroll around the block. I love these little girls with all of my heart! One thing I really love about little ones is they don't care what the world thinks...they don't know any better. They think everyone loves everyone else, they don't have any enemies or things they worry about. I wish that I could be more like Molly, Reagan and Hannah.

I have so much to be thankful for! I know that I don't express that much. (I am going to try to follow Melinda's post and post 100 things I am thankful for.) But in the meantime, I am so grateful for family who love and care unconditionally. I hear horror stories of in-laws, but I have the most amazing in-laws anyone could ask for. Although I fought tooth and nail with my family growing up, I love them! They have taught me so much, and have made me the person I am today. I am grateful for a husband who loves me despite all of my shortcomings! He is the light of my life! And I am eternally grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
