Evelyn had her first THANKSGIVING! This year was my side of the family to spend Thanksgiving with. And for my parents they both had it with their sides of the family so we got to get together with a lot of extended family! Wednesday we had a huge Thanksgiving feast with the Hullinger extended family and then on Thursday we had another huge Thanksgiving feast with the Barton extended family! Soooooo much food! yum. It was great getting together with family and seeing everyone! Evelyn's not quite old enough for solid foods yet so she feasted on a nice yummy bottle haha.

I have been thinking about all the things I am grateful for this Thanksgiving and my heart is so HAPPY!! First of all I am just so crazy thankful for my wonderful husband David. For being my best friend, the love of my life and making me the happiest I've been in my whole life. He gave me our precious Evelyn and there is nothing like the joy of being a mom. He works so hard for us and I am forever grateful. I am so grateful that he is a worthy priesthood holder and puts God first in his life, his testimony gives me strength everyday and I hope to be like him. I am so thankful for our little Evy, she makes us so happy! I absolutely LOVE being her mom- having a baby is such a miracle. I am grateful for my family and for the wonderful family I married into. I am so thankful for my health. I am thankful for our house, it's the cutest little old cottage and it's so cozy! I am thankful for our dogs-they are such fun adventure pooches. I am grateful for supportive and loving friends. I am thankful for my Savior Jesus Christ, my testimony and the peace that it fills my heart with. The list goes on and on. I am so grateful for ALL I have!!! Everyday is such a gift!
