Our Hymn of Grateful Praise

Thanksgiving Week!

What a wonderful week to focus on gratitude and everything we have to be thankful for, especially our Savior Jesus Christ, and his gospel. 

Josh and Jesse both got home on Tuesday night.

It was so fun to see them and have them home!

On Thanksgiving Day, everyone got assigned a dish for the dinner.  Josh displayed his skills learned from his catering job at BYU-I!  He folded the napkins, set the table just right, and even insisted on flowers for the centerpiece! 

And we had Joseph with us too (if only by his portrait).
The turkey wasn't fully defrosted when I pulled it out of the fridge Thursday morning, so we didn't eat dinner until late.  This was highly stressful for me, but everyone was patient and it all turned out well.

On Saturday, we decorated the tree!

 Jesse got to put the top on the tree on this year!  She has never gotten to do it before, and since she might be gone for the next two years on a mission, we let her have the privilege this year.  :)

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.  Especially because Bruce, Mary, Peter, Libby and I played Puerto Rico last night and I won.  :) 

And now it's already December, with Christmas only 24 days away!

PS Sorry the pics are so bad in this post.  I transferred the pictures from our phones through iCloud, and apparently it only stored a small version of the original.  :(  Well, now I know.
