Being Thankful...

Today I woke up feeling an extreme amount of gratitude for all the blessings that have been given to me throughout my life. I am so blessed to be where I am today and to be the woman I am. I don't give myself enough credit most days. I am grateful for my dear children and for the love that they show me. I'm especially grateful for Jeff and for the wonderful husband and father he is. There are so many blessings that I have received and am grateful for.

I'm grateful for Jesus Christ and for his atoning sacrifice. How blessed are we to be able to repent and be forgiven of our sins. I'm grateful for my family and for the love that they show to me and for their examples for me to look up to.

I'm grateful for my testimony of the only true gospel on the earth today. There is no doubt in my mind that the gospel isn't true. I'm grateful to everyone who blesses our lives and show us so much love.

On this Thanksgiving I am truly grateful for life and for being able to be on this earth at this time.

Kaebrie's 1 year pictures...
















Kaebrie is Uno!

Happy Birthday big girl!
Grandpa Rex came over and brought Kaebrie a cute Pony bike to ride on.

Opening gifts with the cousins!
I thought it would be appropriate to have a doggy party for her since one of her first words was "doggy".



Can you believe that Kaebrie is one? I'm not sure where the last year went. She has been a huge blessing in my life. When she was born I swore up and down that I was done having children. After experiencing mother hood, I feel like there might be one more little spirit up there to welcome to our home.

Kaebrie, you are such a cute little girl. You are always making mommy laugh and lightening my moods. When I look at you, you make me feel like I am the luckiest mommy in the world to have such a sweet little girl. I love it when you crinckle your little nose and squeel at the top of your lungs. I laugh when I watch you crawl around with your leg tucked under you. You have been such a great blessing to our lives. Always know that your mom thinks you are the greatest daughter ever. Love you little sissy...

After the General Conference Priesthood Session, Jeff came home and told me about Dieter F. Uchtdorf's talk on the rough economy. Since then, Jeff kept referring to several things that he mentioned for us as Latter-Day saints to follow. I finally took the time to pull up the talk and read it. I felt as if he was talking directly to me. In this trying time of economical trials I felt very touched by his words and was encouraged to keep working as hard as I can and learn as much as I can while on earth.

At times of trial, I tend to get very angry. Jeff also told me of President Monson's talk on Anger. This was meant for me too! Please read if you haven't already.

Happy Halloween...

Happy Halloween!
Just "BEE" yourself!


Kaebrie loved wearing this curly wig that Jeff found. She was so funny!

We aren't the most original when it comes to carving pumpkins:)

We carved pumpkins for family night. Owen was very intrigued by it. He loves candles and was so excited when we put his favorite "green candle" in his pumpkin and lit it on fire.
