Count Your Many Blessings

We returned on Sunday from our Thanksgiving trip to Utah. It was a great trip!! I carved my first Turkey, made my first apple pie (with the help of my mother in law) and participated in 3 delicious Thanksgiving dinners! The Bori's came to UT from Florida, and they were the reason for our drive up! We spent our days hanging out and watching Scott be cute, and I wouldnt have had it any other way. Unfortunately, Im not the one that took pictures, and I havent gotten them from the photographers yet. So, in order to not be posting about Thanksgiving weeks later, I thought I'd post now and add pictures later.

My life is so blessed, and I am so glad to have had that chance to remind myself of how blessed i am every day! Thanks Jenna! We had a fabulous Thanksgiving with family, and Scott was so happy to be surrounded by people to play with. He wasnt bored for one second, and once again, Im paying for it now that its just he and I back at home! Pictures to come!!
