I was thinking this morning how blessed we are as a family, we are blessed to have such great sons and daughters who are there for each other and care about the feeling of each other, who have the gospel in their lives and compassion they have for each other and others as well. For sons and daughters that love their families and the lifes of their families. We are blessed for the awesome grandkids we have for the special spirit that each one has, for the friendship each one has for each other for the principles of the gospel that they are taught in their homes, for the compassion and concern they have for people that have disabilities.. I love them so much. I am blessed for my terrrific husband, the spirit he has about him, for the principles that he has taught our children, for him being so honest and truthful, for his fun personality and the fun he has taught our kids and grandkids. for being my true friend, eternal companion and I just can't say enough about him I love you my sweetheart. First and most important I love the Savior, our elder brother, I love the tender mercies he gives us the knowledge we have about him and the forgiveness he gives us. we are blessed to have our extended families and the families before that. May each of us dwell more on Christ this christmas and know the true meaning of christmas we love you all Merry Christmas
Last night our ward had their christmas party. It was the journey to Bethlehem. we dressed in the attaire of that time, we arrived at the church, went in the front doors and had to pay our taxes before entering the chapel. our taxes was a can for food. We entered the chapel and got our instructions, we had to sign the creed when we left the chapel and got our bag of coins, which bought our clothes if not dressed up, bought food, and games It was just like going to Bethlehem the decorations were beautiful and it was such a fun and spiritual night. Ross played one of the kings and I ran the punch booth. All in all it made a big impression on all the kids and adults too. It was great having the true meaning of Christmas expressed.
A few sundays ago ann and jon's family had to give talks in sacrament, they did a great job konnor gave a great talk , canyon gave his talk which was precious and bailee said she didn't want to give a talk but to sing, so she sang I am a child of God which was beautiful, she sang it without the piano she is so brave and then ann's and Jon's talk was very good I am so proud of my kids and grandkids we love you

Hope all my kids can make it for the christmas party. we love all our kids and grand kids and are so thankful the the family and the fun we have together, for the love that is shown towards each other and the care and concern we have for each others welfare. we could not be given a greater family, or a greater mom and dad waters that started the whole family. we love you all.
True treasure is found within Joy is an attitude that comes with gratitude Gratitude is the first step that comes to future blessings Be grateful for your trails they are blessings in disguise Money is only a tool don't let it rob you of spiritual blessings A smile washes away troubles especially your own Be humble nothing you do will be as great as what Christ did Pride is a heavy rock masked as a feather Choosing to be humble taste sweet being compelled is sour.

Last saturday we took a trip to san diego, Tyson, Torrey and the boys and me and ross we had a great time and a lot of fun. It gave us time to spend with ethan and evan alone time and it was great. we visited the ocean the spot we love the most we got a cabin and it made it a nice campout. Can't wait till next year when the whole family will go.
To night I went to enrichment meeting and we did the theme christmas around the world. We had the ones that went on a mission anywhere to display their items and a taste of the food that they ate and tell alittle about the place they were. It was very interesting and the food samples were quite good. we had a fun night.
This is the time of the year we show what we are thankful for some of these are my terrific husband, my wonderful and talented children and my awsome grandkids, which all have super personalities and I love all these with my heart. My parents who have had a lot of trials but come through them I love them. My testimony without that we have nothing. I am thankful for all the beautiful creations our Heavenly Father has created, for our families if we live and serve well we will have forever. I am thankful for the guidence we get through prayer and through the leaders of the chruch. I am so thankful for so much and just wanted to share this. Happy Thanksgiving.
