Thankful

I love Thanksgiving! It's such a low key Holiday. I love getting together with family and friends and eating good food. I love taking a day to reflect on all everything we should be thankful for, so I want to post a few things I'm thankful for this year...

1. As always, my family. I love all of them!
2. My children, I'm so grateful to be a Mom
3. Jason's hard work and his willingness to support ALL of my family
4. My Mother's example. I want to be just like her!
5. My testimony and the gospel in my life
6. The beautiful home that Jason was able to build for us
7. Good health, especially after Griffin and Jason had surgeries this year.
8. A good ol' mini van that fits everyone and gets us where we all need to be safely!
9. A nice washer and dryer that I use EVERYDAY.
10.Blogging and being able to keep in touch with such wonderful friends!

What are some of the things that you are thankful for?

First of all, you don't have a mini van now do you? They really are super conveinant for getting kids in and out. Especially FOUR (with friends too)! I am thankful for good health!!!

Summer, yes, we have a Nissan Qwest mini van! Jason said he would never but we rented one last Thanksgiving when we went to California and we were sold! It is so easy to get in and out of, the cargo space is awesome, and so is the gas mileage. I drove a Nissan Armada before and it was just too big. (for me)

Karlin-- You have ALWAYS been such a grateful person.. That is one thing I love about you. You can tell how much you appreciate your family and friends and you are always counting your blessings.

I am grateful to have such great friends! So glad that you were able to see your family in ID and have an enjoyable Thanksgiving.. and Weston's looks like it hurts! Ouch!

I should probably just email you this and instead of posting it on your blog, but oh well. I don't want to make you cry or be too personal, but you ARE exactly like your mom. As I was looking at your girls night out pictures, I thought of her and how much she would enjoy being out with you. That is exactly what she would be doing if she were here... going out, shopping, spending time with her favorite girls. You are SO perfect for Baylee (and all your siblings) You are EXACTLY what they need and I am so proud of you for all that you do!! I KNOW your mom is so grateful to you and so proud of you. Keep up the good work, Karlin! You have so much love to give (and that's what your mom was BEST at.. loving her family!)

Love you!!
