Thanksgiving Pictures

So, again, I know that this is late, but here are some pictures of our Thanksgiving, it was our first time hosting a Thanksgiving and it was a huge sucess.  We had our friends the Cupps and the Nickles come for dinner and everyone contributed to the dinner making it very low stress and very yummy for all of us.  Here is the whole crew (Jacob is behind Jared) and my seat is next to Claire.
We had a perfectly cooked turkey (moist and flavorful), homemade cornbread stuffing, Cranberry pomegranate grape salad, sweet potatoes with a sugar pecan topping, whole grain rolls, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes and gravy, and pickles and olives.  Here is Jared carving a turkey for the first time.
We all had a great dinner and talked for awhile and watched football, then we got ourselves and our kids in their pj's and watched "Elf" while we ate the delicious chocolate mousse cake and pumpkin pie that we had for dessert.

So, I feel so ungrateful because Thanksgiving has come and gone and I have not posted one thing that I am thankful for, so here is a short list:
*Great family and family that is close by
*Great friend that leave near and great friends that live far
*Two beautiful, healthy, hilarious children
*Jared, he is a great husband, daddy, provider, and friend.
*Potties (even though they don't always get use when they need to, I change ALOT less diapers
*Blogs...I am excited for Christmas cards, but I feel like I know what most everyone is up to
*Food..I LOVE food
*The gospel of Jesus Christ
*My Savior Jesus Christ

..Stay tuned for pictures of our latest party...

A milestone--your first thanksgiving dinner and such a success! We had our first one with Keith and Pearl at our house in Orem. That was before either of us had kids--long, long ago.
