I love this time of year so much. It is always so much fun to be with our family. This year I have so much grattitude. It has been a long 6weeks with me having my hysterectomey and I am so thankful for all the help I received from our families and friends. Mike and the kids have been great to help and I can't imagine it was always easy for Mike to be Dad and Mom but he is so amazing, I can't imagine not having him in my life. The kids were also great help. Emily was so great to help around the house or with Owen. Owen started telling everyone his "best friends" (Imaginary friends) had belly aches and had to rest. HA HA HA it is so funny what they think of because of what is going on with those around them. Our fmaily could not ask for a better family and neighborhood, My sister Jen and Kathy practically lived at out house while Mike was working and helped clean, do laundry and most importantly play with Owen. What would we do with out them all? I also am so grateful for the gospel and that we have the knowledge to do what we need to do to be together forever and that we all have been given free agency. I am grateful that my kids like to be together most of the time and that my 3yr old sings church songs all day long. I love that Emily likes to go to Young Womens and is excited to be doing her Personal Progress. I love that Andrew is so patient and kind to everyione and is also loving Scouts. I am happy that Mike and I have great jobs to provide for our family and that I have a great group of friends at work that I can rely on. Thank you to all of our family and friends. We hope you have a great holiday season.
