|The tree--isn't it pretty?|
|Every single one of us wrote that we were thankful for Katie!|
Every FHE someone cries. There's something about Monday nights--I don't know what it is but we can't get all of us happy at the same time.
|Not even ice cream and a sisterly hug could console Harrison.|
|At least he knows he's loved.|
|Cameron and Mary made hand print turkeys--thank goodness those two were pleasant!|
Another thing I like to do is make this trail mix. I gave each of my Seminary students a bag before Thanksgiving. We also played an M&M game in Seminary where each kid grabbed a handful of candy--but the more they took they had to participate! Each color represented a different category; they had to name something they were thankful based on the color. Red--a person or group, Blue--skill or talent, Yellow--item or thing, Green--something in nature, Brown--something related to the gospel, or Orange--free choice. It was a great activity.

For Thanksgiving day we were invited to the Osbornes' giant family dinner at the church. Michele and Shane have 6 kids (including Ceara), lots of grandkids, and Michele's 4 sisters and their families.
|Ceara and her mom, Michele. Love those gals!|
|Grabbing a carrot.|
|Judy and Al came from Utah to join us!|
|After dinner there was lots of basketball and volleyball.|
We had a great weekend and and have so much to be thankful for. I hope I show my gratitude for my blessings because I know I have been given so very much.
