A Day For Giving Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving 2009  Daddy had to hold Clark down :)
I really have so much to be thankful for!  
I feel like sometimes I get too caught up in all the negatives; all the chores I have to do, all the money problems, Jason's annoying habits, the boys messiness, the humidity and mold, the BUGS, all the little things that drive you mad, yet at the end of the day they don't matter a bit.  I am thankful for my boys, and my family.  I am thankful for my friends that help me get through the day.  I am thankful for Jason's job and the security it offers, and food it puts on the table.  I am thankful for the gospel in my life, and the guidance and comfort it brings me and my family.  I am thankful we get to live in Hawaii, and all the experiences it has brought my family (and I am thankful we get to move again, and discover even more).  I am thankful for my health, and even more so that my children are healthy.  I am thankful that I know who I am, and what this life is for, where I belong.  I am filled with graditute for all I have and hold dear, and not just on this day of giving thanks, but everyday.
My beautiful, funny, happy baby boys.  
We had a great Thanksgiving with our neighbors/friends.  We had our turkey and ham cooked overnight in the imu, which does cause it to be a little dry, but with a delicious smokey taste.  We all split up the rest of the meal, so nobody had to cook too much, and set up outside.  It was a beautiful day, with cool breezes and lots of sun.  We spent the afternoon enjoying each others company, and Clark's shenanigans.  Good food, friends, family...what is better than that!

Reading all your blog makes me wish we were neighbors and I could see you all all the time! This entry just made me miss you that much more :( And I NEVEWR do those frowny/smiley face things with puntuation marks! That's how sad I am!
