Wishing all our family and friends a
Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone has a fabulous day.
I am so very blessed.
My family is so helpful, hard working and fun!
The Christmas decorations are up!!
Pies and cranberry sauce are made
and all is under control for the big feast.

I am thankful for my amazing husband and children.
For the beautiful home we live in.
The travel adventures we are able to have.
For the support, love, and friendship of fabulous friends.
But, most of all I am so grateful to be a member of
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Nutcracker Tea

This year we didn't think Jensen would
have a part at the Nutcracker Tea.
However, she was asked to dress
as Clara's mother.
It was an honor for her.

Jensen and her dance buddies.
They have danced together for the
last 8 1/2 years.

Not only did Jensen get to dress as Clara's mother.
She introduced the dancers and
read the Nutcracker story to all the kids
in attendance.

These are a few of the cute girls at one of the Tea's
It was fun to have Jensen be a part of our final
Nutcracker Tea.

The Nutcracker has been a big part of our lives
since she was 8.
It was bittersweet as we said goodbye.
Lots of memories and friends.

Thankful Tree

Every year we make our "Thankful Tree."
This year was a little more difficult.
Kenzie is away at college, Scott has been traveling,
and so that left the three of us to carry on.

We did call Kenzie and Scott to get a few of
their Thankful items.
It is hanging in the kitchen as a constant
reminder on what this time of year
is all about.

Hopefully we will be able to remember
all year long to be Thankful and show
gratitude for all that we have.

I love this time of year!
Kenzie comes home tonight, short school week,
yummy food for Thanksgiving, family,
Holiday decorations are going up as I type
(I know I am crazy).

Happy Thanksgiving!
