My Thanksgiving List

In no particular order:

1- The Internet-What did I ever do without, or Hulu for that matter?

2-Blogging-Being able to get regular updates from friends and family is awesome. I'm not much of a phone talker, never have been (not even for my boyfriends, pore guys. And there were many, many of them......I'm highly desirable.)

3-Coupons-We save money and I get to buy stuff I would normally have to pass over.

4-Baby Ruth-She makes me smile everyday. Does the FUNNIEST THINGS, cracks me up and has the best laugh ever!! Watching her learn and figure things out blows my mind.

5Michael-He works so hard at school!!! Just about every night I thank Heavenly Father for putting me in the path of a man who understands his responsibilities and wants to take care of his family in every way.

6-Craigslist-One year ago our apartment was empty except for an air mattress and a baker's rack. You think I exaggerate but I don't. Now our apt. has a couch, chairs, 2 desks, kitchen table/chairs, rocking chair, shelves, baby dresser and a mirror.

7-Sibling's/Parents Who I know have prayed for us over the last year. Prayer works. I've seen it.

8-Friends-Those were also things were didn't have in Durham 1 year ago. Now we have a friend network we can count on and we're not lonely:)

9-Scriptures-It's been a while since I've read the Book of Mormon. I started it again a few weeks ago and it's been amazing. I almost see it in a different way because of all the things that have happened in my life since I last read it from cover to cover. It's a true testament of Jesus Christ.

10-Fall/Winter- This is my favorite time of the year!!! Among other things there are so many trees in Durham and they've been lovely this Fall. In the winter the leaves all fall so I can see more........there are less trees in Utah blocking the view around you and though I'm used to it now I still miss it.

  1. 11. Amanda-because she is the best turd I know.

    Since you forgot to add it, I thought I would. Kelly I know you are highly desirable, but that statement made me laugh out loud all by myself in my house and it made me feel embarrassed. Good job!
