She nailed it.
 With one sentence--she summed up the way a feel.

Happy Holidays

Lots of them

(And pumpkin rolls)

I have been looking around for some new

Owing gratitude for help, favors, etc.

I love holidays

All of them

But Thanksgiving might be my least favorite

Does that make me a bad person?

I feel evil admitting that

I like being thankful people!

But Halloween and Christmas 

Are so much better

This year I have been trying really hard

To love Thanksgiving more

So...I bought some sweet markers

(I love markers, pens, etc)

Wrapped our kitchen table with paper

And then...

Josh and I did our thankful poster

This is by far the best tradition for November 

It helps me focus on my blessings

I get to think about all the things I love

And I get to read what Josh is thankful for

Some things that made the poster?

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Words With Friends



The Gospel

Our house




Our primary class


I suggest you guys try this out

It'll make you happy

a small notch, groove, chip, or the like,
 cut into or existing in something.

Last night Josh and I were play-fighting
And I was winning
So while I was ahead
I locked myself in the bathroom
And started a nice, hot shower.
Just before I got in Josh says,
"You know I have a key to this door right?"
He left me no choice
I had to shower with the curtain open
To keep a close watch on the door
I don't like surprise attacks
But while I was watching the door.....
I nicked myself with my razor
A pretty good nick
It is throbbing right now
He never even came in the bathroom
I lost
I bled
I hurt
