Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving this year was wonderful. Because Brian's schedule is wacky he doesn't get to spend many holidays with Family unless the family is willing to come out here. Well, this year they did. We had My Dad, my three sisters Sariah, Lizzie and Becca and Sariah's fiancee Brian all here for Thanksgiving. Sam and Jenn couldn't make it. Their new baby was a little too young to be making the 4 hour drive, plus they were just getting him on a schedule. We missed you Sam and Jenn!

The weekend started for me on Tuesday when I got to go into Phoenix to pick up Dad from the airport, we then did all of our shopping, and drove the hour and a half back to Salome. On Wednesday we hung out...Dad did some work, I did some cleaning and the girls played. Wednesday night I drove back into Glendale to go see Coldplay in concert with the three girls! It was amazing! We were all crazy excited! After the concert we went to get road munchies and didn't end up on the road until midnight. I took the two younger girls with me while Sariah traveled back to Tucson for a Thanksgiving with her soon to be in-laws. It had been raining earlier in the day and a lot of the roads into Salome were flooded, we ended up taking a detour that added almost an hour to our drive time. We made it home around 2:20am.

Thanksgiving Day was fun, we made a Ham, rolls from scratch, mashed potatoes from scratch, yams, green bean casserole, and of course pie. Sariah and Brian came up on Friday and we had 2nd Thanksgiving with a Turkey, leftovers from the day before with the addition of cranberry sauce and gravy. Two wonderful days! Saturday we went out shooting (a must if you know Brian at all) and then all our company left. It was wonderful to have them here.

I am Thankful for:

My wonderful Husband who supports us,
My beautiful daughters who brighten my life,
The home we live in,
The Gospel that leads us,
And the many many blessings we have received in our lives!
