Happy Thanksgiving!

I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Although life can be ruff sometimes.... I know that I am truly blessed. I have so much to be Thankful for. I have an amazing family that I love very much, wonderful and loving and supportive friends, I have great health, many talents, and a great job and the list goes on and on. There are so many things to be happy about in this life, and I hope we all stop to appreciate them.

My friend Holly in my ward has a blog that I think is awesome. She is a funny gal. Like when she wrote about the opening of In and Out here in Utah County.... she said exactly what I was thinking. This month she was asking her friends to guest post on her blog about Thanksgiving. Here is my guest appearance on her blog. Keep in mind that I was just trying to be funny... but sometimes I am not. I think I am ok with that.

A tradition that my sister Kristy has started with her kids is "The Thanksgiving Tree". I love this. My sister is so great with teaching her kids good principles and has great and creative ways of doing it. Everyday in the month of November... each kid thinks of something they are thankful for and it is written on a leaf and they get to tape it on the tree. Here is there Thanksgiving Tree this year. I love it and want to do this when I have kids one day.

Here is a video that the church put out for Thanksgiving. I love it. It is very touching. And I love Elder Oaks! If you have not seen this video yet, please watch and enjoy!

Here is a picture of a couple of friends and I when we dressed up for ward Thanksgiving dinner! This was my idea. I love to dress up and everyone got a kick out of it. ha ha. I'm weird.

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has a wonderful day! Sending my love!

Happy Thanksgiving. Great video. Elder oaks is so wise. Be thankful in our adversities. Not always the easiest thing to do, but the best thing. Loved it. I love that you dressed up and I love the idea of the tree. :)
