Happy Thanksgiving!

The Top 5 things I am grateful for:

1. My children- They bring me such joy. I am so blessed to be able to stay home with them. They say the funniest things and are so curious about many things. When we are in the car driving, all they do is talk and eventhough I would like silence it is the best way to teach them about the world we live in.

2. My husband , Will- I am so blessed that he has an education and a wonderful job that he loves. He provides for our family so that I can stay home with our children. He loves me and the children and is very protective of us. He holds the priesthood and loves the gospel. I love instant messaging with him throughout the day. He makes me laugh and does things that he hates to do just to make me happy.

3. My extended family- I love my sisters, sister-in-laws,brother-in-laws, neices and nephews, grandparents and aunts. They give us so much support and are always there for us. They are the first around when I am sick and when we have our babies. I love hanging out with them and look up to them.

4. My Religion- I Belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know who I am and know God's plan. I am thankful for the plan of Salvation, the priesthood,the Relief Society, primary and the Young Women's programs. I am thankful for Joseph Smith that he restored the gospel in these latter-days. His courage,strength and obedience. I could go on and on but I'll stop there.

5. Our Country- We are spoiled rotten living in the U.S.A. We can worship how we may, buy what we may, live where we may, do what we may, but with a consequence if it is wrong. It's amazing. For the most part people are good and kind and very generous. God bless the U. S. A.

Have a great Turkey Day. (For Lindsay and Steve plus kids and Clark and Liesel and baby girl. We love you and pray for you daily and can't wait to see you at Christmas.)

Fall is in the air

The weather has been soo perfect. We have been going to the park and riding bikes almost everyday after school. I love that the A/C is turned off and the windows are open. We love being outside and having all the neighbor kids over. Wave to us as you drive by. We have started to go Geocaching again and even put our own cache out along the QC wash. I know we are nerds but we have fun as a family and that is what matters. Anyways it is time for bed so Peace out.

The "boys" went Golfing up at the cabin. Nolan got to go with them. Will let Nolan drive the golf cart. (Ooooo.....I'm telling.) We got to watch them play golf since the cabin is on the second green. We tossed them a soda and took their jackets for them.
Nice form there Will!

Nolan having a blast.
