Thanksgiving 2016

My mum was in Australia this Thanksgiving holiday, so we did our own at home. I had beautiful pictures of the delicious feast that Micah and I prepared, but they were lost. Boo! The only pictures I have from the whole day are these cute place settings that I made on my cricut. I guess it's better than absolutely nothing. They are really cute. I kind of want to make them for my whole family next year, when we get together at mum's. We'll see if I'm allowed to. ;)

Even though you can't see the turkey that Micah made, just know that it was absolutely delicious. I'm so glad that he likes to do that kind of stuff. It made it a lot less stressful for me. We had a great meal and got to spend some really quality time together. I love this holiday. I love them all, but it's great to have such a focus on gratitude. 
I'm so grateful for my family and my extended family. My life is only as great as it is, because of them. I'm grateful for my job and for my role in helping children learn. I'm incredibly grateful for the gospel in my life and the guiding light. Most of all, I'm grateful for my Savior, Jesus Christ and my loving Heavenly Father.  I don't know what I would do if I didn't have the knowledge that they love me and want what is best for me. My life is directed by that knowledge and I look forward to seeing them again some day.
