Dakota and Santa

This was taken in Utah after much coaxing to get him up there.. He had a blast telling Santa all the TRANSFORMERS he wanted. It was super cute. I love this picture. He just looks so happy in it. My little boy is growing up.

Thanksgiving... not just one day a year

This was my first Thanksgiving without Dakota. He spent November in Utah with his dad... and had a great time. I was supposed to go to Montrose to be with mom and dad.. but a storm hit the mountains and I wasn't about to drive in that crap by myself. So I stayed home. Thank goodness for great friends. I enjoyed a wonderful meal with some from friends from the Grandview ward, and watched the Cowboys lose to the Saints. I was sad to not be with family... but after some long and lonely nights. I have come to realize all that I am THANKFUL for this year. This has been a rough year. So it's been hard for me to find things to be thankful for. But here is my list this year of things I am Thankful for....

My Family


My Families Health

My Uncle Johnnie is still with us

My faith

The Gospel of Jesus Christ

My brothers and sister in uniform

New roads to be traveled

Amazing Friends

May we always be truly grateful for the precious things in our lives. Let us not take for granted what we have. And embrace the trials we are faced with.
