Happy Thanksgiving

Wow. I am so behind on this blog... it is overwhelming. I have been so busy it's crazy. But, I didn't want to let this wonderful day pass without expressing my gratitude so here I am. I won't bore you all with a list... just know that I feel so blessed... words can not express how thankful I am for my life, where I am in this journey and the people who are on it with me.

I LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. this video. Random people on the streets of New York City. Brings tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. I hope it helps you remember the little things that make your life wonderful! (blogger chops off the right side... you can still see it pretty well, or you can double click on it to see it on Youtube.)

So, what are YOU thankful for?


Flashback Friday- Things I found on Chris' Computer

Every once in a awhile, when we don't have the camera handy, we'll take pictures with Chris' iphone. Of course I forget that they are there and never go back to see them. While looking at some other pictures on Chris' computer I came across these fun memories and thought I would share them for this weeks flashback. Hope you enjoy.

Afton's first haircut
We all know about Afton's hair issues... I've blogged about them quite a bit. She just can;t seem to grow it and we were thrilled when she finally started to get a little more length. However, it was growing in pretty unevenly so we were debating getting it trimmed... a thought I just couldn't get my head around. One day, way back in December, Chris was getting his hair cut and we were in the area so we stopped by to say hi. Imagine my shock when Chris asked the barber to cut Afton's hair and tossed her in the chair. I baremy had time to protest and just kept saying "I can;t believe you're doing this". Well, she loved it, she was so cute the whole time, and she looked adorable when all was said and done. We've had it cut a few times since... just to even it out. It's still growing so slow and so thin, but it's getting there.

Christmas Devotional
Just because there are so few pictures of me on this blog. Chris snapped this at a family get together to watch the Christmas Devotional last December. Yeah me!

'LaReve' in Las Vegas
Remember this? When we got to Afton's show I realized that my camera didn't have the memory card in it (Max had taken it to use on his Nintendo dsi... the little stinker), so we got this not so great shot with the iphone. Afton's show was the main reason we went to Vegas and it was awesome. SHE was amazing!! Totally worth the trip.

'Keane' in Concert
Chris LOVES 'Keane'. Lucky for him they came to Salt Lake in June and I took him for Father's Day. I must admit that I was not a fan... I just went because he wanted to. That definitely changed at the concert. It was THE BEST concert ever! Seriously amazing and the main singer is a great performer. I was in awe the entire time and may have even developed a little crush on him. I am most certainly a fan now and can't wait until they come back to town. You can bet we will be there!!

Just because...
... he is so cute! I found this on Chris' phone and it brought a smile to my face. I'm not sure when it was taken or why, probably one of the kids playing with the iphone, but I love it. Look at those eyes! They melt my heart every day.
