I love this time of year to reflect on our blessings and spend time with family eating GOOD food!! We went to Woodland Hills and enjoyed the company of Lecia and family, Boyd and my parents. I made a "Thankful Tree" and had a service project to help the Red Cross make comfort kids. Everyone was so nice to donate things and we made 12! After playing some games and eating pie, we headed to Sandy to be with Pat's family. This year we had it at Sonia's and it was just Pat and his sisters and their families. It was nice to be a smaller group, and the food was amazing!! We are lucky to get 2 meals. :) We raced home to get ready for Black Friday. I braved the crowds with Whitney at Wal-Mart @ midnight. It was crazy, I'm not gonna lie! I don't think I'll be doing that again. Full price is fine by me. haha! Anyway, we feel so grateful and so very blessed to have the things we have and our wonderful family. Happy Thanksgiving.

Zoey @ 8 months

This little girl gets cuter and cuter! She is officially crawling and getting around. It's fun to watch her rock back and forth and then just take off. She likes to play on the floor now with toys and the boys and Wolfie. She is a great little eater and would rather eat something she can pick up rather than something pureed. One of her top front teeth have come in and the other is not far behind. She went through a rough patch of waking up a lot during the night (I think it was her teeth), but now is back to her wonderful sleep habits. She expresses herself with squeaks, screams and squeals. Especially when being overwhelmed by her brothers. She smiles at everyone and is so happy and friendly. She is starting to go to others without a fuss (she was starting to turn into a momma's girl). She likes taking baths and playing in the water. She doesn't like getting dressed or her diaper changed. When she hears music from her toys, she bounces and claps. Everyday I thank my Heavenly Father for her sweet spirit in my life. It is amazing how much love I have for her. Not unlike my love for the boys, but it's so tender since she is the girl and my last. What a precious little sweetie I have!!!
