Wow, I am a little behind and have a lot to blog about.

Thanksgiving was great.  I have so much to be thankful for right now: a wonderful husband who loves me and does more for me than I could ever expect, a son who makes me laugh and makes me proud every single day, a daughter that is the answer to prayers and truly brings so much joy to our home, parents who love me and are the absolute greatest, the best little sister who I am now able to spend so much more time with. wonderful in laws, a beautiful home, my husbands job which he loves and that allows us to have the things we need, great friends, and so much more.  I am so blessed and thankful for so much.

Thanksgiving was great.  We had it at our house.  My family and Kirk's parents came.   We had good food (well except for the stuffing, I am still on a quest for the perfect stuffing recipe), and a lot of fun.   Then on Friday, I went Black Friday shopping with Emily.  That has become a tradition for us and I love it.  We are never too serious about it, we just go to have fun, but we were relatively successful this year, which is nice too.

Here are some pictures from Thanksgiving.

Our turkey, which was honestly the best turkey I have ever eaten, yum!

Robby made these cute little buckets for everyone's napkins and silverware to go into.  He worked so hard on them and they turned out so cute!


  1. Glad that you were able to have family...excpet us! But we were happy to have my brother and his family here. This is just one of those holidays that isn't the same without family.

  2. I know. We were sad to not have you here. I am glad that you were able to have some family with you though. It does make it a lot more fun.
