This Thanksgiving we went to Colorado to see my family.  We had a great time!  I went to see Richard to get my hair done while Jacob went shooting with my brother and dad.  We introduced Jacob to Willy's wings, ran the Gobble Wobble on Thanksgiving morning, ran red rocks, went to a nuggets game, saw the new James Bond movie, Skyfall, did some black Friday shopping, I got my nails done with my sisters and mom, and enjoyed lots of time with family.  We had lots of fun and wished we could have stayed longer.   I am so very grateful for everything that they do for me and their generosity and love for me and Jacob.

     I was so excited to go and see Brooklyn.  Unfortunately she is in the stranger danger phase and cried every time Jacob and I looked at her.  I was not going to give up!  That little girl has a big sweet tooth and I was determined to get her to like me.  I offered her all the sweet tarts and nerds that her mother would let me and by Sunday she let me hold her!  I was so excited, but so sad we had to leave so hopefully she will remember us in California at the end of this month.  She is so cute and has such a fun personality.  We loved watching her play, laugh, and discover new things.

     It has become a tradition with my family for the girls to do a craft on Thanksgiving eve.  This year we painted shutters and cute clothes pins to use to hang pictures and mail.  They turned out so cute.  I made a green, black, and white one to match our bedroom.
We have so much to be grateful for.  I have been blessed with such a great job and Jacob with his schooling.  We are both healthy and happy.  We have had a great year together.  We are so grateful for our family, our home, for the gospel of Jesus Christ, and for each other.
