Thanksgiving 2009

THE Turkey. It was deep fried and delicious! I must say it was one of the best Turkey's we have ever had. It was perfectly cooked and so moist and tender. A big thanks to the Taylor's for helping us and letting us use their fryer.
Lucas and John were SO hungry. Here they are with our fantatic feast in front of them. It was just us this year but we had a great time.

Another angle of the food....see that side of the yams that is white...John says that the sweet potatoes are like dessert at dinner and piled LOADS of brown sugar and marshmellows on top of "his" half. I like mine just plain with a little butter and salt and pepper!

One more picture just for fun.
The whole family. Lucas is making the funniest face. Crazy kid!
This year we have so much to be thankful for:
*our jobs
*our family
*our home
*the Gospel
*the Savior
*our wonderful friends
*each other
*the fact that we can put food on the table and clothes on our backs
*our health
*health insurance
*hospitals and doctors
This list could go on and on! We are so grateful for all of the wonderful things that we have been blessed with. We are so grateful for the Gospel and the joy it brings into our lives every day. This year we have an added something to be grateful for in that we will soon be adding to our little family. It has been a long 8 months but we are so grateful to the doctors and nurses who have been monitoring our little girl to make sure she is growing how she is supposed to.
To all our friends and family--- we love you all and are so grateful to have you in our lives!
