Happy thanksgiving!

With tomorrow being thanksgiving and all, I just wanted to wish everyone A great and happy thanksgiving! As i sat getting things ready for christmas and cursing the season all together...and how fast the time flys during this time of year... I decided to sit back for a minute and think about all the things i have been blessed with this year!
I am so thankful for my husband how he always puts his family first. A husband who appreciates even if the house is kinda clean, and loves me even when i am in a dirty large t-shirt and my fav. sweats. (which seems to be the re-occuring theme at my house) I am thankful for my girls. i never realized the capacity in which you could love another person. Watching them as they sleep. I am SOOO thankful that my children are healthy, and have LOTS of energy. I am thankful that aaron was able to get an amazing residency...and I AM SUPER thankful we ended up with people we love. I am thankful for my bestest bella. who without her morning phone calls i dont know if i could make it thru the day! For having someone to call a friend that knows me, and loves me even when I pull a "candace". I am thankful for our families who are so incredibly supportive, and loving. I am thankful for sisters, and sisters-in-laws who make family vacations all the rave! I am thankful for my brothers who i love with all my heart. they keep me down to earth and explain to me all the time that i am not as cool as i think i am! I am thankful for my mommy...who is truly my closest friend and supports me even when she knows i am making a bad choice. I am thankful that she is always there to talk to in all hours of the night...and for several hours on tuesdays! I am thankful for the having the gospel of jesus christ in my life. Having that sweet comfort in my daughters lives and knowing that we will be together forever. I am thankful for a time of year when we can stop and reflect on all that we have in our lives...i hope you all have a wonderful thanksgiving....and thank you for being a part of ours!
