Before our festivities begin, I wanted to make sure that I get this post out there to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to our dear family and friends who live so far away. As we take time to remember our blessings today we will be counting you among them.
My blessings are too many to count and too many to acknowledge in a post. But at the very top of my list are these:
My Savior, Jesus Christ.
My knowledge that God has a plan for me and for each and everyone of us.
My family, there's lots of you and you know who you are.
My friends, I have been blessed with friends who are so dear that they are family to me.
This country, for the freedoms that I enjoy. For the gift to be able to raise my children in peace and for them to have a bright future.
There are many, many more. But no room to write them all.
So Happy Thanksgiving to all of my peeps out there. I hope you have a yummy feast. I will post about our festivities later. For now I've got to go run...literally...I'm running in the Turkey Trot race. Gots to burn those calories before I eat them!
Yesterday Eden's Kindergarten class had a Thanksgiving feast. She insisted that she be dressed as a pilgrim. Problem is we have no pilgrim costumes, so this is what we came up with.

You're pretty creative Jessica, she looks adorable! You have no party city near? They had pilgrim hats. I saw them when searching for pirate costumes.
Happy Thanksgiving!

I think Eden's pilgrim outfit turned out perfect!

What a beautiful post of gratitude. I really enjoyed reading the things you listed.

Hope you did well in the Turkey Trot. I bet you can out run a turkey any day of the week ;)

You were an awesome Young Women's leader. I think all three of us could say that you made a huge difference in our lives and we wouldn't be where we are today without you. I miss you so much and you still are such a blessing and example to me. I mean honestly, where would I be without Guster? That was all you, baby.

Lovely pilgrim! We are waiting for your news per Jessica R. We'll be patient.

I don't think there was ever a cuter pilgrim. Abuelita Hernandez is especially proud to point out that she made Edie's apron. Everyone here at the house thought she looked so sweet. Love you Edie bugs.
