Late post, but still thankful!

We spent our Thanksgiving break in Utah. We had such a fun time seeing our families, and being able to take advantage of Utah's dollar movie theater. We ate way too much food, of course, but enjoyed every minute of it. Jordan especially loved getting 5 desserts on Thanksgiving!

We left late last night and drove until about 3 am to miss all of the holiday traffic through Vegas and California. We were successful in missing traffic, unlike last year when we had to stay in Primm, Nevada until the traffic died down. Jordan and I were given the royal treatment and were able to sleep most of the drive. We sure are grateful Benji is such a trooper and stayed awake to drive us safely home.

Speaking of things I'm grateful for, here is just a small list of the things I am especially grateful for this year.

It has been such a wonderful year raising our little basketball man. He has such a great personality! He amazes me daily with his sense of humor and intelligence. I am truly grateful that I have the beautiful, sacred, and fun opportunity to be a mother.

I am grateful for how hard Benji works for our little family. I am also grateful for what a great father he is. He is the perfect man for me!

The temple.I am so grateful I can live with my family forever. I am grateful for the peace and spirit I feel in the temple, and I'm grateful there is a temple so close to my home.

My testimony.
I am grateful for the knowledge I have of my Savior Jesus Christ and the Gospel. I'm grateful for a living Prophet, Joseph Smith and the scriptures.

Our growing family.We are excited to add another member to our family soon. I'm also grateful that I've had a wonderful, pain-free pregnancy thus far! (Oh, and we're grateful for Disneyland! :))

Our support system. (You)
We have wonderful family, friends, ward members, and neighbors! We are so grateful for the help we have received from all of you. I have been humbled so many times this year with the help provided to our family from our wonderful family and friends! We are grateful for those that have been willing to watch Jordan, make us meals, give a listening ear, a supportive word or two, and/or a few dollars once in awhile. Thanks to all of you...I'm sure you know who you are.

Now a few more things...
I'm also grateful for our health, our house, food, camera, dishwasher, washer and dryer, yard sales, and my swamp cooler.

We sure hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!
