I am Thankful for the little Pilgrims that came to the feast. 

Thankful for Dar, Brad, Zach, Mitch, And Taylor - who risked their lives to travel from Utah in order to visit us!

Thankful that Gabe and Curtis spent 100 hours of their lives doing a puzzle of Portland. 

Thankful that even though Spencer cut his first tooth this week, he was still as happy and squeezable as ever!

 Thankful for my sister-in law Kallie, who slaved away with me to produce our wonderfully unnecessary over the top Holiday experience! And my mom for providing some of the main dishes that I was sure I would ruin if I tried!
(NOT thankful that I did not have time to fix my hair on Thanksgiving day....)

EXTREMELY Thankful for the extra 3 pounds this baby gave me.

And lastly, I am thankful that my Turkey was 23 pounds of deliciousness. And that only the yams and the stuffing caught on fire. Thanks to everyone for helping me have the best Thanksgiving ever. It was wonderful. And I never want to be in charge again.

Looks like lots of fun! I have not been in charge of Thanksgiving yet, and am praying it never happens unless it is just my small family. Way to go!
