Gratitude is something we try to talk about in our home all year round.. grateful for our family.. and our house.. and clothes to keep us warm.. and food to eat.. and other little things.. like no arguing on a car ride.. or socks without holes.. or the sun shinning.. etc..

There you have it.. I was going to keep going.. but I decided to move on.. More gratefuls next year. We were so lucky to be invited to Aunt Jen and Uncle Ross's house in Midway for Thanksgiving dinner. They just recently moved back to Utah after being homeless for almost a year. It is very fun to have them back..
