Happy Thanksgiving!

ca_10165We are excited to say that Shaun now has a job after graduation! HOORAY! He was able to get a job working with the city manager of Folsom, CA. This will be a great opportunity to get some work experience in local government and prepare for grad school. We are pretty excited. Folsom is a beautiful city…I always loved to drive around there and just be there when I was in high school. My friend Lisa and I would ditch first period with Mrs. Adorno to go to the American River…I mean, no we wouldn’t… It’s a great town and I really think Shaun will enjoy this job! We were praying hard and everything seemed to come together so we feel it is a great blessing. Viva California!

Speaking of blessings, in 16 minutes it will be Thanksgiving day. I really should go to bed, but this seems like the only me time I get these days, after the kiddo goes to sleep! There is so much to be thankful for, so much of it I overlook everyday. The fact that our car still runs, we have a warm home, we are all healthy and well (as far as we know!) we have the gospel in our lives and wonderful parents who have taught us correct principles since we were young. Clothes and shoes keep us warm, toothbrushes keep the grime off of our teeth, shampoo for clean hair, a refrigerator that keeps all of our food from going bad (ok, I am sure there is something molding in the back…but that’s totally my fault!) Dental floss to get that piece of chicken that has been bothering us, the post office so we can send packages across the country and around the world…the list goes on and on. There are so many things that may not seem like they fit into the category of “blessings” but if we really dig deep there are so many things to be thankful for! I hope I can do a better job of really digging up and recognizing all of the blessing in my life!

I hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving and eat so much you need to unbutton your pants! I know I will with all of the pies we have at Shaun’s parent’s! Wow, that’s probably my favorite part of the day! Take care, we love you all!
