Giving Thanks

What a day! We are spending our thanksgiving in Denver, CO with our dear friends Blake and Whitney Jackson. They are such amazing blessings in our lives. God truly gave them to us as a special blessing that cannot be expressed in words. It was our first thanksgiving on our own...without our mom's preparation of the feast that is, and it was a total success. We made all of our favorite turkey day foods and didn't mess anything up. And, the kitchen is still in tact! It was a wonderful, disaster free day full of love and good fellowship.  A friend of Blake's from work came as well as some OC friends Jared and Rachel. After our feast we watched football and just enjoyed being together. 

God has richly blessed me with my amazing husband who has such a beautiful understanding of marriage as a partnership. My babies are so much fun and fill my life with joy and love. The love and support I get from my parents and in-laws is unmatched. They are simply amazing! All of my siblings (including in-laws) have become my best friends as I have gotten older. I love them dearly and thank God for our relationships. I am thankful for the heritage I have received from my parents and grandparents. My family is awesome! 

Yeah, it was a good day.
