Happy Thanksgiving

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving and we have so much to be thankful for! Last Monday we did family home evening about gratitude and we each made a list of everything we are grateful for. Brock did his own and Sammi got help from Dad. I helped Briggs with one too. It was so nice to see what everyone is thankful for, even remind myself, that although we are going through this trial, we have so many blessings. I love those moments together as a family. We all put eachother at the top of the list. I love my family so much! We spent the day with my family first eating at a church with my Mom's side of the family, (grandma, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc) there was a lot of people. Then we went back to my parents and ate some more . Then my Dad bought us all tickets to see Christmas Carol! The kids really liked it, even though the ghosts were a bit scary. We back to eat more and play games! All in all a great day with lots of eating!

Halloween Fun!

We carved pumpkins this year just with our little family! It was fun and we kept them really simple. The kids loved drawing on the pumpkins and picking out the design. They all, even Briggs liked cleaning them out. Then Brock had a halloween parade at his school and Sammi had a little party at pre-school. We got together with my family and had a fun party with all the cousins in there costumes. Then on Halloween the kids went trunk or treating with there cousin Savannah at our ward building.Brock was Indiana Jones, Sammi was a unicorn, and Briggs was the cutest giraffe!
