For Thanksgiving every year we go to both families homes. We feel so blessed to have so much family in town that it is hard for us to miss ANYTHING that goes on in either family. This year we had an early Thanksgiving lunch with the Mangums which was fabulous and dinner later that evening at the Moser's which was also wonderful. You just can't go wrong when every place you go has such amazing food. :) I didn't get many pics but I did get a few. This year we feel so thankful for so many things but especially for the blessing of family, tithing, employment and education. Nothing this year would have been possible for us if not for these things. It has been such a blessing for me to be a stay at home mom. I have just felt so humbled to know that Heavenly Father trusted me enough to aid in raising our sweet Madelyn. Josh's schooling has gone so well and he is just getting better and better (if you can believe that, it's possible!) We are gratefl for his employment at the University and at the credit union. They both have brought great comfort and peace into our lives. We are soooooo grateful for the Gospel of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Our knowledge and testimony of this great gospel has been a cornerstone in our family and we truly feel so blessed to have it.
Thanksgiving night was really a lot of fun. We had Christy and Eric and their family staying with us and my nephew Austin came and joined the fun that night too. Austin and Brad wanted to get into the Black Friday spirit and convinced Christy to let them come with her at midnight to Wal-Mart. They first were briefed on how you don't go to browse the store, you have a mission and you go with the soul purpose of accomplishing that mission. They were given assignments of things to look for and they were to not wonder far from Christy. It was hilarious and so cute to watch them. They let me take some funny pics to remember this night by. Needless to say the next morning they decided Black Friday was NOT for them. :) But Brad did get a fun remote control car on sale. Ha Ha!! In the morning while Christy and Josh were out hitting the sales, we at home started a fire in the fire pit and rosted marshmallows for breakfast. It was such a great holiday!
