HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
Time for my absolutely favorite holiday! All about family and the things we are grateful for which for me is family #1 of course. No decorating, no presents to buy, no commercialization. I love it. It's all about family, gratitude and, of course, turkey -my favorite meal- can't wait!! I don't even mind cooking the turkey and trimmings....ymmmm! We are in the most beautiful setting for our holiday this year. We are staying at the Cliff Lodge in Snowbird and there is snow on the mountains and it is gorgeous! I drove out with Kelly, Jody, Ammon and Cohen last Friday. We spent the night in Elko and arrived on Saturday. It was so great to see Alex again! Chris, Kalie, Madison and Kyle got here Tuesday morning and Lee got here that night after shooting a big elk in Montana. Matt and Kasey and family surprised everyone and came at the last minute to visit his family and ours today. All we need is Lindsey, Alan and Izzy to be complete. We are so blessed to have so much family here with us to celebrate this special time. I just came in from watching Madison and Ammon sledding down a tiny hill. Hilarious! They are fearless and loving it. Kyle likes to "swim" in the snow and Cohen just likes to wander. Can't wait till Kaden, Alexa, and Sienna get up here. How grateful I am for the good things in my life: my wonderful family, precious granchildren, great husband, good friends and the Gospel that makes it all more meaningful. Hope each of you has a wonderful Thanksgiving as you celebrate with those you love most!
