Our Thanksgiving Day!

This Thanksgiving we went to Chris' Grandma James house.  Michael enjoyed spending time with his cousins.  Especially when they put a toy ball up there shirts and were bumping into each other.  We enjoyed each others company and are glad that Uncle Denver could come up this year.  It was a great Thanksgiving feast!

In the Spirit of Thanksgiving

I saw this video put out by the church and found it very uplifting.
the Spirit of Thanksgiving

          I am thankful for my wonderful little family! For my amazing husband who takes care of our family so that I can stay home with our boys, for my two darling boys who makes it fun to be their mother.  I am thankful for the love Michael has for his brother Jesse, for all the cute things Michael comes up with.  I am thankful for Jesse's cute smiles and laughs.  I am thankful for the gospel in my life, for temples, to know that we can be a forever family.  I am thankful for the scriptures, for the Book of Mormon, for the answers we can receive from it through prayer.  I am also thankful that we can talk to our Heavenly Father through prayer.  I am thankful for my parents for the examples they have given me and for all they do.  I am thankful for my in-laws example to me as well.  I am thankful for all of my siblings, their spouses, my one and only nephew who we adore!  I am thankful for the blessings we have been given and knowledge that we can all live together again!  I am also thankful for friends, for the beautiful earth we live on, for animals, our pets (even though sometimes I threaten to get rid of them), for good music, for my talents and the talents of those that share them, for flowers, for food that we have to eat.  This is only the beginning of all I am thankful for!  ~Danielle
