Full Bellies and Full Hearts

Thanksgiving this year did not disappoint. It never does!! We spent a wonderful day with our family eating great food and feeling abundantly blessed.
We had the kids spend some time in the morning writing down a list of what they were thankful for...we may or may not have bribed them with $1 for the best/longest list. However, what started out as a competition ended up being fairly reflective as we sat down and read everyone's list. (The longest list had 187 points!) We are very blessed and have so much to be thankful for! Even if some of those blessings include toilet paper and deodorant...I think the kids were trying to be funny, but when they really thought about it...those "silly" items were still very real blessings!
When we arrived at Grandma and Grandpa's house we joined in the bustling of getting everything plated, situated, and warmed up.
We really enjoyed seeing our St. George cousins who braved the cold and weather to join in the fun!
The table settings were beautiful as always...with name tags, pictures, and decor.

We had the kids eat a late breakfast to help them last until 2:00, but the delicious smells really got us hungry!
But it was worth the wait!

Dad's pineapple ham...
Aunt Cristi's butterhorns...

Grandma's moist turkey!
It was definitely tasty!!

Later that evening after we had digested a little we sat around for some good laughs,

a little joking around,

and a lot of yummy pies. A great end to a fun day!
