So much to be thankful for...

I love my family. I love that we get together once a month and for holidays. I am thankful for Cody, my son. I am thankful for Bella, my kitty girl. I am thankful for big Cody. This Thanksgiving weekend was so wonderful and fun. Cody came to visit from Texas. My family got together for Thanksgiving. Melissa and Rob got to come. We were just missing Ben and his family and Jeaniece's hubby and kids. We has yummy food and a fun filled foam dart gun war. I am thankful I have a job. I am thankful for the gospel and the joy and happiness I have in my life because of it. I am thankful for repentance and forgiveness. I am glad I have gotten to know a wonderful man.
This thanksgiving weekend Cody proposed to me. (Yes, Officially.) We are not sure when the wedding will be. We are planning on being married in the Mesa Temple and living in Texas. I am so excited to meet his girls. This was an awesome Thanksgiving weekend!

A cousin is a ready-made friend for life

Cody loves his cousins. We always have such fun on family days at my parents house. The family gets together at mom and dad's once a month. It is something we look forward to every month. This time grandma and grandpa Kern got to be there with us, too.
My parents go to yard sales and buy fun costumes and toys for the boys. I love it when they dress up. So cute. Ethan, Drew and I were the village people. We even performed the song YMCA. Then all the other boys got into the hat action.

A day that will go down in the history of my forever. . .

On Saturday November 7th I went to the Temple for the first time. It was a great experience. I am so thankful for my friends and family who joined me that day. Grandma and Grandpa came out from California. That was super awesome!

After the Temple mom and dad took some of us to lunch. It was fun.
Ry-ry Too Fly, Jeaniece, Drewberto, and Coders.
Hudson was not feeling the close up. But Patti and Abe did good. Hudson was wiggly in Meagan's shot, too. He is so cute! I heart him!
This is a few shots of the group at lunch and my close ups with my friends Angela Hoach and Kayla Conover. Thanks for coming to lunch on surprise notice, hee hee!
I am really thankful for all those that came with me to the temple and those of you that thought of me and had me in your prayers. I am thankful for all those who have helped my get this far and progress in life.

I didn't get pictures, but the others that were at the temple but not at lunch were, my friends, Kristen Shumway, Tanya George, Erica Schifsky, Jenn Johns, Deb Hardy, and Kristen's mom. Thanks to the girls hubby's for babysitting their kiddos and Jeaniece for watching mine.
