Okay, so after my talk on Sunday (about Thanksgiving), I am trying to work harder on being thankful for all things. I am even trying to learn to be thankful for the trials that I have had in my life!! I am so thankful for the knowledge that the scriptures give us about how our Heavenly Father is mindful of us, and that He won't give us anymore than we can handle!

I am super excited about this Thanksgiving! We will be having most of Mike's family here, plus my "little" brother and his sweet wife! The last time that I've had Thanksgiving with any member of my family was twenty years ago. I am saddened to think that it has truly been this long since I have celebrated a holiday with a member of my family. I just hope that this will be the first of many times that my brother and I will get together!!

I would love to say that our lives have slowed down now that marching band season is over...but, I'm afraid that we are all still very busy! I loved being able to watch Tosha and Zac perform with the Westlake band. It was a sad night, a couple of weeks ago, when I realized that this performance was Natosha's last as a high school marching band student! On this same day, though, we found out that Natosha had been accepted to USU!! Yay!! My little girl is growing up (sniff, sniff)!

I hope that you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and that you will take the time to see all of the wonderful blessings that you have in your life!
