Thanksgiving 2008

This Thanksgiving was a little different considering: Chris wasn't there cuz he was working, my brother Stefen wasn't there cuz he is serving a mission, my sister Shelbi and her husband weren't there cuz they were with Scott's family, my Dad was sick and couldn't taste much of anything, and we had 2 turkeys and a ham plus a bunch of other yummy food but the 2 turkeys weren't ready when it was time to eat. We just had ham for Thanksgiving and then ate the turkey as we cleaned up the dinner. I am so thankful that we had the opportunity to eat a Thanksgiving dinner, so it was fine that not everything was just right. I love this time of year and all the fun family memories that I have from the past. This was just another to add to the memory book!!

Aniston ate some of EVERYTHING and she LOVED it!!

This is the infamous bubble gum machine and all the kids LOVE "gummies"

As we drove home after our yummy dinner, I was showing Aniston all the pretty Christmas lights. She kept saying "wow" and "petty" the whole way home. She helped me with the Christmas tree Friday, and loves the lights and sparkling ornaments. Christmas is so much more special with little ones around. I worry that the real reason of Christmas will be lost in all the other things that go on around Chritmas time, and I hope that some way I can keep Christ as the center of our celebration through the years.
