Happy Thanksgiving

We are celebrating at our house.  I will post some pictures later. 

I am so thankful for my bounteous blessings.  I'm thankful for my family, lots of food, a place to live, wonderful friends, a husband that loves me and cooks an awesome turkey, my parents, the sunshine, the snow, cars, Jesus Christ, opportunity to learn, crazy kids, brothers and sister, inlaws that are like brothers and sisters and parents, my nieces and nephews, my computer, running water, my eyes, jobs, Joseph Smith, good examples, I could go on and on but I must get to cooking and such.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

To boys table.



The adults and baby table.



The finale of the Thansgiving program.



Wonderful Z making us yummy yams.  Well the marshmallows kind of burned.  It must have been that she was so tired from getting up at 4am to go shopping.  In her defense she did make her awesome yams casserole for Thanksgiving dinner and those were as good as always and not burned!

Images of Greatness: Thomas Edison


CR had this big project all of last term.  He did lots of research and reports and the final project was to dress up and act like their person.  First the whole class sang a song and then they each performed.  CR did Thomas Edison and he learned so much about perseverance and commitment to what you know is true.  He's such a good actor!


If I could put the video here I would but I don't know how to do that or even if it is possible.

I did it!
