Thanksgiving Memories...

I have always loved Thanksgiving. I love the food... I mean who wouldn't? But I especially love the getting together with family part. The more the merrier.. the louder the better. I love seeing everyone, watching movies together, playing games, visiting and just everything that goes with it.

I love that we mix both Brent's family and mine and that they blend so nicely. It's almost become a tradition to watch Shrek and Remember the Titans... I think we've done it like four or five years running now. I'm pretty sure we throw in Christmas Vacation also. This will be the first year that we have the Man Cave so it should be really awesome this year. Isn't it funny how traditions begin.. You watch something one year... then by chance, I swear, the next year the same movies were requested... then it becomes a thing and Thanksgiving won't seem quite the same with out it. This is our second Thanksgiving with out momma and I'm pretty sure she picked Remember the Titans... so that seems to bring her closer... Brent's dad and the kids LOVED Shrek... it's always good for a laugh... so gotta watch that one too... and then what can I say about Christmas Vacation??? It's a CLASSIC!! Gotta love Cousin Eddy... every family has one... it's just up for debate whether he's on your side of the family or your spouse's.

Any who... Thanksgiving Memories... that is what I am thankful for... for old ones and new ones yet to be created. I'm thankful for family and friends. I'm thankful for the church and the plan of salvation. I'm thankful for our great nation and those who serve here and abroad. I'm thankful for our missionaries. I'm thankful for my sweetie who tries to help keep me in line... it's a tough job... but someone has to do it... I'm thankful for my children... they are a constant source of joy! I thankful for the Lord and his blessings... may each of you have a holiday season filled with peace and joy!

Hey I miss you guys. You all look so cute and like you are having so much fun. Tell Zach it's not always the car that makes the man look hot. Although next time I'm out he better get me a ride in it. Love you and Miss you all.
